From the seaside to the city, a summer in Somerset is packed full of culture, food and drink, entertainment and something to suit everyone. With sunshine and blue skies chasing away the winter blues, July is the perfect time to enjoy this vibrant county and with a little bit of inside help, you’ll see all there is to offer.
With so much diversity across Somerset, festivals and events are a great way for both the local community and guests to enjoy local produce, talent and traditions together. If you’ve been on holiday to Somerset before and are looking for something a bit different, or even if you’ve never visited the area, why not seize the day this July? With such a wide range of activities and shows to get involved in right on your cottage doorstep, you’ll want to stay an extra week.
