The very name of this county is its best introduction – the summer shire; golden with cider and cheese. Somerset has history, tradition, long folk memories but its image for the visitor is immediate and present – the glow of the ideal summer holiday.
The area can be divided in four – the Mendip hills; mid-Somerset of ‘the Levels’; the upland areas of Exmoor and the Quantock hills; and the green hills of south Somerset. Discover the World Heritage city of Bath, explore the tiny cathedral city of Wells or go underground at Cheddar Caves and Wookey Hole.
Whatever your interest, Hideaways' specially selected Somerset holiday cottages provide the perfect base from which to discover this interesting and varied county.
