West Country cottages 5 – holiday cottages in Somerset

Somerset is sometimes overlooked as a place you drive through, but it is one of England's most attractive and varied counties. If you like hills, choose between the Mendips in north Somerset (Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and great walking), or the Brendons, Quantocks and Exmoor to the west. And if you prefer your walking easier, try the Somerset Levels. Though as flat as the fens, there is always a hill on the horizon to add a backdrop to the charms of willow, peat, grazing cows and abundant flora and fauna.

South Somerset has pretty, idyllic villages and the Parrett Trail. Then there are coastal resorts like Minehead or Weston-super-Mare, the mystical thrills of Glastonbury and the Isle of Avalon.

Finally, don't forget the towns and cities of Somerset. There is the cathedral city of Wells, Taunton the county town and further north the historic and beautiful city of Bath and busy metropolitan Bristol. Somerset has a lot to offer as a cottage holiday destination and it's ideal if you want to avoid a longer journey further down the south west peninsula but still seek the charm of the West Country.

Somerset cottage types

We list cottages and holiday rentals right across Somerset with some lovely properties in and around the Bath area in the north, right down to cottages on the edge of the county border with Devon. These include several larger properties and cottage complexes suitable for families or groups of 10 plus.

Particularly interesting Somerset cottages we currently list include Swiss style timber lodges and stone cottages on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, several top quality self-catering cottages on a large country estate south of Bath and some very attractive contemporary style cottages on a farm close to Bath.
