Stock up on cheese and cider for an intimate feast in one of our Somerset holiday cottages sleeping two people.
Kick back, relax and let Somerset’s scenery quietly seduce you in your cottage for two.
Every bit as sweet as it sounds, Somerset is a dream destination for an escape for two. Whether you’re a beach lover or nature lover, want a quiet break or are looking for a spot of adventure, Somerset will have something to fit the bill.
First to its coastline. Although only 50 miles long, the swathes of sand on many beaches ensure you will be able to find a secret spot of your own for a picnic or simply to relax. The seven miles of golden sands stretching between Burnham-on-Sea and Brean is one such gem.
Exmoor simply oozes romance – think heather-clad moors, dappled forest floors and twinkling rivers babbling over ancient riverbeds like at Tarr Steps near Liscombe. Visit the National Park Visitor Centres at Dulverton, Dunster or Lynmouth for staff recommendations and tips for your tandem trek. Plan a romantic break for two in Somerset to really make the most of these beautiful places.
Although offering ample natural splendor, Somerset’s illustrious past has ensured its fair share of romantic buildings, estates and parks are on offer. Ideal for relaxed, romantic stroll, Prior Park is a National Trust property set in a sweeping valley with magnificent views of Bath. Be sure to cross the ornate Palladian Bridge, one of only four in the world.
Wells Cathedral is equally as impressive – despite the fact that the city is incongruously small. Pause to wander the pretty streets and call in to one of the city’s chic cafes.
Why walk when you can travel in style? Immerse yourself in the wonderfully nostalgic West Somerset Railway – a scenic 20-mile rail tour from the Quantock Hills to the Bristol Channel coast which recaptures the romantic era of steam rail travel. Spiffing!
A much-needed soak in a hot tub will relieve the aches and pains of your long walks, take a look at our Somerset holiday cottages with a hot tub.
