The Somerset Lifestyle

There’s so much to enjoy in and around Somerset, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.


The largest city in Somerset, Bath has been a popular wellbeing destination since way back in the ancient Roman times; with stunning Georgian architecture, ancient Roman Baths, modern hot springs, great opportunities to view the city from an aerial angle with the Bath skyline walk and Abbey Tower, and fantastic Victorian art galleries and museums.


One of the most tranquil National Parks in the country, Exmoor is renowned for its deep valleys, heather moorlands, ancient woodlands, medieval towns and villages, and the wild Exmoor Ponies. Exmoor National Park is a unique and special place that makes for the perfect day out for those looking for a more active retirement.


Glastonbury is known for its world famous music festival, however there is much more to Glastonbury than this; especially for those looking for a rural retreat with some interesting historical sights. From the Grade I listed Glastonbury Tor, to the ruined remains of the Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury makes for a peaceful retreat surrounded by Arthurian history.

The Somerset Coast

Spanning the length of the Bristol Channel, the Somerset coast offers everything from seaside resorts, golden beaches and dramatic coastal views. Visit Burnham-on-Sea for one of the longest sandy beaches in Europe, Weston-Super-Mare for a classic Victorian seaside resort, or Portishead for its award-winning marina and coastal walking trails.
