March events in Somerset

Delve into the depths of Somerset this March with our pick of things to do across the county this month. From bird watching to various fairs and markets, there’s something for everyone to do whilst staying in your holiday cottage.

Now that we’ve definitely reached spring, you might be looking at where to go for your summer holidays. But why not stop to smell the roses while they’re still fresh? Book a short break in Somerset to enjoy some weekend frolicking without the stress of travelling too far from home. The early spring days are perfect for seeing the great outdoors with fresh eyes: new leaves on the trees, buds beginning to bloom and maybe even a little bunny or two. 

 

Soak up everything Somerset has to offer this March with these events:

4th March: Exmoor Train and Toy fair

5th March: Chard Plant and Gardening Fair

5th March: Hestercombe gardens Woodland Wander

11th March: Beginners guide to Bird Watching at RSPB Ham Wall

18th March: Vintage Somerset Vintage and Retro fair

25th March: Somerset Farmers’ market in Glastonbury

26th March: Yeovil half marathon

After a shower of spring rain head out into the woods for the sights and scents of a fresh forest walk. Or grab a mountain bike and pedal along the slopes of Exmoor. Spend your days walking the trails for a break from the beaches. Stay in a dog friendly cottage and take your four legged friends for a run through the woods too. The countryside of Somerset is dramatic and colourful, a beautiful place to make the most of your precious weekends or holidays away. In the evenings come back to your holiday let to warm you toes by the fire or hop in the hot tub for a relaxing soak under the starry skies.

 

Plan a trip to Somerset at any time of the year to enjoy one of our luxury holiday homes.
