The best locations in Somerset for a hot tub break
Best for: Cultural trips
Bath is beautiful in every sense of the word and still retains architecture and history from when it was discovered by the Romans. The Roman Baths and Royal Crescent have got to be on your list of things to do and see and, when you’re not taking in all of the views, a slow wander up and down the streets, feasting on snacks from pop-up food shacks and indulging in some retail therapy is a great way to spend a few hours. It’s not hard to see why so many poets, authors and artists have been inspired after visiting this incredible city.
Best for: Pet-friendly trips
If you’re looking for a holiday that both you and your four-legged friends will enjoy then Exmoor is a great choice. For starters, most of the national park is within Somerset’s region meaning there’s plenty of hiking and walking trails to explore. Plus, where there’s countryside, there’s quaint villages and towns too with a range of pubs and cafes to take your pick from. Don’t forget to look out for the wild ponies that call Exmoor home.
Best for: A day at the beach
A traditional Victorian seaside resort, Weston-super-Mare offers golden beaches, brash arcades and picturesque coastal scenes such as colourful beach huts, piers and ice cream stands. In fact, while the area was refurbished in 2008, it still retains some historical charm and there’s plenty of family-friendly activities to keep all ages busy! Close by, you’ll find lots of characterful villages and towns too.
Best for: Picture opportunities
Cheddar is best known for the famous attraction, Cheddar Gorge, one of Britain’s wonders. The limestone dips almost 140 metres below and is the largest in the country. The oldest complete human skeleton was also found here and was thought to be 9,000 years old. That’s not all as Cheddar is also ideally located for the Mendip Hills and it’s the hometown of Cheddar Cheese, which we think is worth visiting just for that!
Best for: Quieter stays
Another seaside town, Minehead sits on the Bristol Channel and is close to Exmoor and its national park. Unassuming yet charming, on a sunny day, visitors flock here from miles for the sandy beach and shallow waters. As well as everything you’d expect from a traditional British beach resort, there’s the West Somerset Railway which allows you to ride a steam ride through the local area.
The best activities in Somerset
Thermae Bath Spa
The Thermae Bath Spa is the only natural thermal spa in Britain. While the Roman Baths attract visitors from all over the world, you can’t actually touch the water. But at this spa, which offers state of the art and traditional spa facilities, you can. After a morning of exploring the city, where better to relax? There’s also afternoon tea on offer if you really want to make a day of it.
Tarr Steps is alleged to date back to the Bronze Age and is the longest bridge in Britain – coming in at 55 metres. It crosses the River Barle and makes up part of a circular walk ideal for families and their dogs. Nestled deep in Exmoor’s beautiful woodland and countryside, you won’t want to forget your camera for this one and maybe pack a picnic lunch to really make a day out of it.
The Grand Pier
Boasting lots of good old-fashioned family fun, The Grand Pier first opened in 1904 and has been Grade II listed since the 80s. At 366 metres long, there’s plenty of fun and games to enjoy as well as pop up food stalls. But the pier also has a few interesting tales. In fact, it’s been destroyed by fire twice – once in 1930 and then in 2008. Today though, there’s shows, rides and arcade amusements to keep everyone entertained.
The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company
Of course, you’ve got to visit Cheddar Gorge when you’re in the area but if you’re looking for something else to do, a trip to The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company is a must! Here, you can see how the famous cheese is made, and you’ll even learn how cheese is graded before embarking on a tasting journey. Plus, once you’re done, you’re free to explore the cheese shop. Now, that’s definitely worth a trip.
The Golden Retriever Experience
Yes, The Golden Retriever Experience really is what you think it is. Play fetch, enjoy cuddles and pretend you’re a dog owner for a few hours at this specialist activity centre. Not only is it great fun but it’s proven to help with pet bereavement, PTSD and those with learning and social difficulties. Plus, your Insta feed is going to love it. The only problem is that you can’t take the puppies home.
