Somerset travel guide

4.1
Jewel of the Southwest
Many people refer to modern Somerset as the "Jewel of the Southwest," but the ancient Welsh Celts often described it as the "Land of the Summer People." Authentic and cozy country pubs are scattered throughout this county, which is known for its rolling rural landscapes. Somerset’s major business is sheep and cattle farming, so make sure your trip includes a sample of its most notable product, the world-famous Cheddar cheese. Extend your gastronomical itinerary by tasting Somerset's well-known strong ciders, brewed using traditional methods. With its landscapes of meadows, hills, and hedgerows, Somerset is a picture-perfect representative of a simpler world, where you can enjoy a holiday far from the bustle of the big cities and overcrowded tourist attractions.
