After an exciting Christmas and New Year, it’s time to relax and enjoy the start of 2018. What could be more relaxing than a break in the beautiful Somerset countryside? From the Exmoor hills to Jurassic coasts, there’s plenty of gorgeous landscapes to take your breath away during your stay.
Whether you’re heading off with the kids for some quality time before they go back to school or it’s just the two of you seeking a quiet short break, there’s lots to do in Somerset this January. Enjoy a traditional concert in Wells Cathedral – they remove the furniture so you experience the cathedral like it would have been when it was first built. Take little ones to see the starlings at RSPB Nature Reserve Ham Wall and get them outside learning while they’re having fun too.
If you’re planning on staying a little closer to your holiday cottage, choose one with a fire for cosy afternoons and evenings curled up with a hot chocolate. Add a little luxury in celebration of the New Year and stay in a holiday let with a hot tub, a great alternative to a fire as you can stay warm while enjoying the fantastic views outside.
Here are some events we think you might like while your staying in Somerset this January.
