April events in Somerset

Whether you’re planning a break during the Easter school holidays or a quick bank holiday getaway, a spring break to Somerset will be sure to give you the relaxation time you need to head back to work feeling refreshed.

Stay by the sea in Somerset and plan fossil walks on Kilve beach or head to Glastonbury Abbey for medieval family fun. April brings with it the good weather meaning plenty of woodland wanders and maybe even a dip in the sea if you’re feeling brave. Soak up the spring sunshine and make memories with family and friends on a lovely break in your home away from home.


For something special to do, plan one of these events into your trip and experience an exciting day out in Somerset.

Throughout April: Court Farm Country Park lamb feeding

1st and 2nd April: Cadbury Easter egg trail at Barrington Court

1st to 12th April: Signs of spring trail at Coleridge Cottage

2nd and 6th April: Family activities at Glastonbury Abbey

3rd, 4th and 5th April: Falconry demonstrations at Dunster Castle

Choose a Somerset holiday cottage with a hot tub for a break away with friends and soak up the spring sunshine in the bubbles before getting ready for a day out in the Somerset countryside. Bring along all the family, including your four legged friends, for a stay in a dog friendly cottage. Entertain the kids all day long, even in bad weather, by choosing a holiday let with a swimming pool on your doorstep to get them active whilst you relax. You might even get chance to have a dip yourself.


Our Somerset holiday lets are a perfect escape at any time of the year.
