There’s nothing quite like Somerset in the spring. As the flora and fauna of the stunning countryside emerges, so does the community. There’s plenty to do and even more to see this spring in Somerset.


Start the season with a spring in your step in local Taunton, just 15 minutes from our self-catering accommodation in Bridgwater. The Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon kick off on the 6th of April for a 26 mile and 13 mile road race in the areas that surround the picturesque countryside of Lakeview Holiday Cottages. Lace up and enjoy the ride.

Taunton also hosts The Rural Living Show that celebrates the great crafts, innovations and community of the South West. There’s an attraction for each member of the family. Gardens to lounge in, food to enjoy and a classic car collection to admire. If you’ve still got the urge for fitness, an NSPCC Fun Run is also held on the same day to cap off an enjoyable day out in Taunton. The Rural Living Show is on the 13th of April.


May is when the canals, woodlands and plains really come into bloom around Lakeview Holiday Cottages in Bridgwater. Explore the cultural heritage of Bridgwater and the influence behind the town’s famous carnival – the Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Festival. Visit the Blake Museum and the culturally vibrant streets of Castle Street, King Square and Cornhill where you’ll find fine restaurants and traditional pubs perfect after a day’s stroll.


If you’re looking for thrills, twists and turns visit the Weston Air Festival in Weston-super-Mare. At the height of spring you can catch the Red Arrows as they dazzle the beachfront as on the 21st and 22nd of June. Military exhibitions, aircraft displays and family games will all be on show to amuse and entertain.
