With summer almost over and the kids nearly back at school, August bank holiday represents the last chance to get away as a family. Our self-catering cottages in Somerset are filling up fast for the bank holiday weekend so book now to avoid missing out. There is so much to see and do in Somerset to finish the summer holidays in style! Aside from the activities happening throughout the county, there are a number of advantages to booking self-catering accommodation in Somerset. 

Stay Local, Save Money 

If you are planning a last minute getaway with the family, going abroad is likely to break the bank. As the busiest weekend of the year in many European destinations, airlines put their prices through the roof for this period. For the August Bank Holiday weekend our self-catering holidays in Somerset are very reasonably priced, even for a last minute booking. Our holiday accommodation in Somerset also features all the utilities and equipment necessary to cook for a whole family. This will save lots of money on dining out for lunch and dinner. 

Medieval Weekend 

Over the August Bank Holiday there are plenty of great family activities near to our self-catering accommodation in Somerset. From the 27th to the 29th of August a Medieval Festival will be taking place at the Bishop’s Palace & Gardens, which is within an hours drive of our self-catering cottages in Somerset. The Medieval Weekend is great for families looking to immerse themselves in 800 years of history. Throughout the weekend there will be live demonstrations and choreographed combat.  

Explore Somerset Countryside 

The main advantage of booking a self-catering holiday in Somerset is that our apartments are set in the picturesque Somerset countryside. Just by walking out of your self-catering cottage in Somerset you will find countless walks through beautiful scenery. With most of the sunny weather nearly over for the year, it is the perfect opportunity to get on and explore the Somerset countryside. We recommend bringing the family to Somerset for a walking holiday, with some gorgeous beaches and woodlands to uncover. 

Watchet Live 

For music lovers, the Watchet Festival is must see! The festival site is only a 40 minute drive from our self-catering accommodation in Somerset. Enjoy acts like Scouting For Girls and Level 42 and then return to our holiday accommodation in Somerset for a comfortable night’s sleep. This independent festival is always a highlight of the year and a great way to end the summer holidays.
