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!
Sandwiched between the Somerset Levels and the Quantock Hills, Bridgwater’s surroundings are a pastoral paradise. Cycling, walking, horse riding – there are any number of ways to get out into the countryside and breathe the fresh Somerset air. In Bridgwater itself there are plenty of diversions; high street and boutique shopping, some great pubs and two good museums recalling the long and illustrious history of this part of Somerset. Bridgwater’s Guy Fawkes Carnival every November is worth a trip in itself.
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!
Hire a bike and explore the wonders of the Somerset Levels, historic sites, rivers, canals and the Quantock Hills. With a range of routes and bikes to choose from, you can have a great day out with all the family. 24 hours notice is needed to reserve bikes.
