Self-catering holiday rentals in Somerset for your home stay

As one of the most peaceful counties of southern England, Somerset is an ideal holiday destination for a short break with the family, friends or on your own to escape from the rat race and recharge your batteries. Much of this county is open greenery so is perfectly suited to those who enjoy rambling or picturesque cycling trips. Much of the terrain is flat but for a more demanding route, the Mendip Hills offer visitors expanses of rugged countryside. When you rent a holiday apartment in Somerset you also have a coastline nearby for water sports, fishing and relaxing on the beach. When you rent a vacation apartment in Somerset you will find yourself surrounded by swathes of arable and livestock farming land; not to mention cider orchards. Cheddar cheese can only be made here from milk of the dairy cattle you will see roaming the pastures and local scrumpy is ten times better than what you can buy in the shops; it is also pretty fierce so is often only served in third of a pint glasses. There is a range of holiday cottages available in Somerset from small apartments for lone travellers or couples to large self catered holiday homes when there is going to be a crowd of you. You will find plenty to occupy your time in Somerset from the historic sites of English Civil war battlegrounds going way back to Roman hot springs at Bath and even prehistoric settlements. At Cheddar you can see a replica skeleton of a man who lived here almost 10,000 years ago and discover his dark cannibal history. As well as innumerable charming villages and hamlets, the towns of Taunton, Yeovil and Weston Super Mare have thriving restaurants and bars where you can relax with a meal or a pint in the welcoming hospitality of Somerset.

Bank holidays in Somerset are lively with air shows and county fairs as well as some of the more bizarre English traditions like morris dancing and scrambling down a hill chasing a giant cheese. During the Winter, Somerset is peaceful so if you are looking to get away from it all, a holiday cottage with a roaring fire could suit you just fine. Equally, in the Summer, during school holidays, vacation apartments can be rented to make the most of the exciting things for children to do in Somerset; explore rock pools for sea creatures or visit one of the local adventure parks or falconry sites where children can get to grips with a real bird of prey.
