Somerset is full of unique traditions and landmarks. Whether you associate the county with rolling hills, quaint toy towns or delicious delicacies, there is so much Somerset is famous for. Here are a few of Lakeview Holiday Cottage’s favourites:
The Sweet Track
The Sweet Track is considered to be the oldest engineered road in the world. Located in a causeway in the Somerset Levels, this road is believed to have been built between 3807 and 3806 BC. If you’re planning a weekend break in Somerset, why not go and explore this ancient landmark?
Now the largest performing arts festival in the world, Glastonbury Festival has brought fame to this part of the country. For those heading to the 5-day event this year, Lakeview’s Holiday Cottages in Somerset are just 50-minutes away!
The world’s greatest cheddar & cider
Somerset is renowned for its cheddar cheese and cider. A wealth of apple orchards once made Somerset the cider capital of the UK, whilst the Cheddar Gorge caves are still used to mature cheese today. If you’re planning a trip to Cheddar Gorge with the family, why not book a stay in Lakeview’s family self-catering accommodation in Somerset?
The home of comedy and literature
Somerset is home to a number of comedy and literature greats, including John Cleese, Terry Pratchett and Bill Bailey. With so many peaceful landscapes to explore during a Somerset holiday, there’s no wonder that great works have been produced here.
Let it snow…
Somerset receives more snow than anywhere else in England. With this in mind, we’ve made our self catering accommodation in Somerset extra cosy for those frosty fingers and toes!
The tales of Wookey Hole
Legend has it that the Wookey Hole caves were once home to a witch who cursed a man from Glastonbury. These spooky stories are certain to excite your little ones during your short break in Somerset.
