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.

Holiday Letting in for your short break

Overlooking the Bristol Channel in the south west of England, holiday rentals in Somerset make the ideal base from where you can plan a voyage of discovery through a region simply bursting with history, culture and spectacular natural environments, so rent a holiday farmhouse or cottage in Somerset and you might need to stay for more than fortnight in order to cram all there is to see and do into one holiday. Farmhouses and cottages in Somerset are a typically rustic option found in many picturesque towns and villages where a gentle pace of life still influenced by ancient customs and traditions provides the perfect antidote to a stressful urban routine, and an atmosphere of calm seems to envelop much of this peaceful corner of England - holiday rental accommodation in Somerset often being chosen for nothing more than a vacation of quiet relaxation, although with so much beautiful countryside to explore and so many historic places of interest to investigate, you might find yourself spending more time away from your holiday home in Somerset than in it! Home to Glastonbury Tor and Sherbourne Abbey, anyone with a love of history will find even more than they bargained for in locations throughout the region, and Cheddar Gorge and Wooky Hole Caves are just two examples of how nature has left its unique mark on this part of the West Country - holiday home rentals and bed and breakfasts in Somerset therefore guaranteeing to appeal to the sense of adventure of people of all ages and interests.

Best time to enjoy Somerset

There is no bad time to visit Somerset, the climate here is milder than most of England and rainfall is below the national average, so all round the year you can enjoy the balcony or patio of your holiday rental. During the Summer months, Weston Super Mare hosts a number of festivals and events both for locals and those who are visiting on holiday. 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. Meanwhile Mum and Dad can enjoy some peace and quiet while the little ones are being kept busy. Renting a holiday home in Somerset provides an affordable short break in one of England's most placid counties with all mod cons and everything you could ask for from your short break in Somerset.
