Explore Somerset

We love Somerset for its super slow rural feel, its down to earthiness and that Somerset ‘mystique’. It’s with a sense of rural authenticity, legends and folklore that we wish to inspire you.

Our own expert team have designed walking holidays to take you on the trail of legendary King Arthur, to grand Elizabethan houses (one that’s haunted too) and through apple orchards and cider farms.
