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:

2nd March: Restoring a masterpiece lecture with Roy Bolton

3rd to 11th March: Crocus week at Forde Abbey

4th March: Forde Abbey Plant Fair

4th March: Clevedon market

24th March: Somerset Farmers’ market in Glastonbury

24th March: Levels Best Craft and Farmers’ market at Montacute House

26th March: Yeovil half marathon

28th March: Antique and Vintage textile fair in Ilminster

30th March: Binocular open day at RSPB Ham Wall

30th March to 2nd April: Forde Abbey Easter fun


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.
