Spring has arrived late in our area. Many guests visit this part of England in order to visit the surrounding country houses and gardens. The gardens are at their best in late May and early June for spectacular floral displays. Montacute House, Stourhead, Barrington Court, Tintinhull and Lytes Carey are some of the most popular.
Somerset has a rich agricultural history and throughout the centuries wealthy landowners and others have built grand homes for themselves in the countryside. Today a large number of those country homes and mansions remain standing in perfect condition and are open for public exploration. Many of these impressive residences also have exquisitely landscaped gardens to wander in.
Somerset is the heart of the West Country and is famed for its countryside and agriculture produce. Holidays in the county provide plenty of opportunities to sample traditionally made cider and authentic Cheddar cheese. There are also many different attractions to visit whether you’re enjoying a family holiday or a romantic break.
