Introducing Somerset

With its landscape of knotted hedgerows, hummocked hills and russet-coloured fields, sleepy Somerset is the very picture of the rural English countryside, and makes the perfect escape from the tourist hordes of Bath and the big city hustle of Bristol. The county’s agricultural image and distinctive Somerset burr have long made it the butt of yokel jokes, and while things certainly move at a drowsier pace around these parts, that’s all part of what makes this charming county tick. From the elegant streets of the cathedral city of Wells to the hippie chic of Glastonbury and the open fields of Exmoor, this is a place to wander, ponder and drink in the sights at your own laid-back pace.
