Despite the difficulties presented to us this year, it has also been the year for rediscovering activities in our home towns and spending time with loved ones. It’s amazing to see what ventures we may not have thought to try before the pandemic. That’s why at Lakeview Holiday Cottages we have come up with some activities you can still enjoy in Somerset this winter.

1.       Winter Walks

Winter walks are one of the most popular things to do in Somerset, especially in the beautiful countryside our holiday cottages are located in. Surrounded by natural wildlife and beauty, there is a wide range of places to explore, rain or shine! Cheddar Gorge, Lollover Hill, and national trails are just some of the great spots you can head out to in for a winter walk.

2.       Delicious Comfort Food

After the way 2020 has gone, we all deserve to enjoy great comfort food. Why not order your favourite local takeaway in Somerset, or indulge in some delicious comfort food at home. Lakeview Holiday cottages can provide some great recommendations for restaurants which deliver to our Somerset self-catering accommodation. So feel free to ask if you are feeling a quiet night in with some good grub!

3.       Self-Care

One of the most important things to continue doing, now more than ever, is self-care. You can practise self-care in several ways; cosy up by the fire, pamper yourself, spend the day in your pj’s. Regardless of what you choose, self-care is all about doing things you enjoy which make you feel relaxed. If you happen to be staying at Lakeview Holiday Cottages in Somerset, why not run yourself a bubble bath? This way, even if you are away from home, you can continue to enjoy the little things.

4.       Connecting With Your Loved Ones

If have family members you haven’t been able to see much or if not at all during the pandemic, take the time to reconnect. In particular, if you have more free time than usual, calling up your loved ones is a great way to brighten up a gloomy day.

5.       Wintery Crafts

Whether you have children or love arts and crafts yourself, wintery crafts provide a great way to keep you occupied and get creative. Some wintery crafts could include making festive decorations, homemade cards, or even adult colouring books. Our Somerset self-catering accommodation is spacious and includes a large dining table which perfect space for getting stuck into some wintery crafts on a family staycation in Somerset.
