Somerset and Exmoor are full of quaint tradition and quirky little places to discover where the magic of Christmas comes alive. Find yourself the perfect Christmas cottage to hunker down in and enjoy the fruits of your Christmas market labours. It's a very rural county so perfect for Christmas breaks with dogs, drying off in front of the fire after running through the frosty fields.
All of our Christmas cottages are superbly equipped with everything you need for cooking that Christmas feast before walking off the excess in the Somerset countryside.
Set yourself up for a Christmas on Exmoor for true walking country, or pick a place along the north coast for Christmas sea views - pebbly Porlock, the harbour at Minehead or the marina at Watchet, anywhere as far east as Weston-Super-Mare where you might even spot Wales on a clear day.
Steer clear of the coast and find a rural retreat of picture postcard perfection. A tiny little town has necessary amenities but much more charm; seek out inland loveliness like Crewkerne or Bruton, go spiritual at Glastonbury or go large and visit one of the counties two cities, Bath or Wells for a full-on Christmas market experience.
