Burnham-on-Sea's beaches are comprised of everything you could need for a quintessential day by the sea, including ice cream galore, donkey rides, cafes and, most importantly, oodles of golden sand. Being Europe's second longest stretch of sand, the beaches offer lots of space to play and explore. For a beach in the heart of the action, visit Burnham Main Beach, also home to Britain's shortest pier.
A gentle stroll around the lake will take about 40 minutes and you will be able to spot lots of wildlife on the way so don't forget to take bread for the ducks!
A Somerset seaside resort that balances stereotype with stunning landscapes. Set looking over the bay to Bridgwater National Nature Reserve, its just off the M5 and has something for everyone....including secret shipwrecks!
Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.
It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!
A beautifully restored 17th century pub, open all day for drinks, snacks and dinner. A woodburner warms the bar during the winter months and you can eat alfresco on the terrace in the summer.
The Swan at Wedmore
Does marvellous coffee & food, about 6 miles from Cherry May Barn.
This is one crazy 'day at the races' - for adrenalin seekers who can stand on the banks and watch the speed demons do their thing on this 300m long track.
A traditional country pub/restaurant with a seasonal menu offering home cooked food using local suppliers. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
Meet the Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton. Learn the ancient skills of flint-knapping and fire-lighting from hunter-gatherers at the Museum of Prehistory. Embark on the fantasy world Crystal Quest. See cannibal remains and jaw-dropping stalactite and stalagmite formations. Beginner sessions in caving, climbing and abseiling, nature walks and open-top bus tours of Britain's biggest gorge. Leave plenty of time to explore here.
