Visit Somerset

We want your holiday break to be as enjoyable as possible. If you're visiting Somerset for the first time, you are in for a treat! And if you are returning, don't worry, there are plenty more wonderful places to explore.

Somerset has some of the largest curated collections in the UK from museums, theatres and galleries to theme parks and nature reserves to caves hand historic coastlines. It is truly a county of contrasts.

There are also some popular local attractions, most notably the Quantock Hills - for amazing walks and stunning views of the beautiful countryside and Wellington Monument - a triangular obelisk designed to commemorate the Duke of Wellington's victory at the Battle of Waterloo. Langford Budville is also surrounded by the Blackdown Hills and situated on the doorstep of Exmoor national park - both areas of outstanding beauty.

Less than a 10 minute walk from Tom's House is Langford Heathfield reserve, Somerset's second largest reserve, a mixture of ancient and secondary woodland scrub - a biological site of special scientific interest.  A mecca of flower, fauna and wildlife including the heathfield ponies, deer, an array of insects, birds (including owls), kingfishers, kestrels, and not forgetting the beautiful wild flowers, grasses, trees, and shrubs.

Wow, what can I say ... we have just come home after spending an amazing week staying at "Tom's House" The house is wonderful and the facilities met all of our needs, particularly the kitchen which is spacious and well laid out with all the latest modern conveniences. However, when we didn't want to cook, there is a superb pub just next door! The bedrooms are amazing - all with kingsize beds, ensuite and sofa beds. The area outside has been beautifully considered, with a barbecue area for al fresco dining, a fabulous seating area with fireplace if the evening gets chilly and enough space for children to play. Our family loved everything about Tom's House - it was our first stay, but certainly will not be our last. We would highly recommend!
