Best Western have 3 hotels in Somerset

> See all hotels in Somerset

Book a hotel in Somerset, one of the country's largest counties, the perfect place to head for a short break. With a relatively mild climate, a beautiful coastline and several iconic and charming cities and towns, it is unsurprising that Somerset is a popular destination for tourists. Best Western has ten hotels in Somerset, dotted throughout the region to give our guests the chance to stay in any west-country setting whether coastal, rural or urban.

Town and city breaks in Somerset

A hotel in Somerset will provide a launching pad for you to go out and explore the many iconic and beautiful towns and settlements that litter the countryside. The county town, Taunton, can be found in the south, a pretty and traditional west-country town with several large parks including Vivary Park, where the Taunton Flower Show is held, great shopping facilities and a wide selection of places to eat and drink. Bath, one of the nation's best-loved towns, sunk peacefully in the gorgeous, green west-country valley, is home to not only the famous Roman Baths, from which the city got its name, but the remarkable bath-stone cathedral and the world-famous Pulteney Bridge, a Grade I-listed structure and international tourist attraction. Visit any of the small local towns and villages from your Somerset hotel and marvel at their beauty and communal feel. The cathedral in Wells in particular is worth a visit. Its impressive stone façade and hundreds of ornate statues will whisk you back to medieval times and really are like nothing else on our shores. The small town of Street has a great outlet-store district with a variety of department stores and brands available - the perfect destination for a day out shopping.

Holidays in the Somerset countryside

A hotel in Somerset will give you access to some of the most attractive countryside in England, famous for its gentle rolling hills and primitive and basic, natural features. Head to the top of Clay Hill, an ancient man-made mound, for some of the best views to be found in the part of the country: the cosy country towns, the mismatched patchwork of fields and meadows, and in the distance the glistening of the Bristol Channel. Pick a Best Western Somerset hotel for your base to explore these charming traditional country villages. The scenery is striking and varied. Enjoy the valleys of the Mendips, go rock climbing in Avon Gorge or wander across the atmospheric heaths and moorlands of Exmoor National Park. The county has one of the largest networks of caves and underground rivers and caverns in the country, including Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and Ebbor Gorge.

Beach holidays in Somerset

The Bristol Channel has the second-largest tidal range in the world. The coast is dotted with alluring villages including Weston-super-Mare and Portishead. Our Somerset hotel in the former will give you access to this wonderful holiday destination, where you can enjoy donkey rides along the along the heavenly sands before taking a bare-footed stroll along the town pier, home-made ice cream in hand. From Burnham-on-Sea to Brean Down, you can roam miles of unspoiled sandy beaches with the sea breeze ruffling your hair.

Attractions in Somerset

When you book a hotel in Somerset, don't miss Glastonbury Tor, where legend has it that the man who pulled sword from stone, the brave and wise King Arthur was buried. While you're in Somerset, it is essential to enjoy the local produce. Nothing quite compares to local west-country watering holes and Somerset's with its love of cider and cheese. A pub tour around one of the small countryside towns, such as Chard or Axbridge, is a wonderful and memorable way to spend an afternoon and evening. If you get to your Somerset hotel by car, it's definitely worth visiting Longleat safari park to get wild with the animals and watch out for the witch as you tiptoe through the spooky caves of Wookey Hole. Book a hotel in Somerset with Best Western and explore this beautiful county that lies at the heart of England's West Country - a wonderful destination for a short break!
