About Somerset

Somerset offers the green rural idyll many visitors to England are hoping to find. Warm and witty West Country charm, thatched cottages, country lanes, cider and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty abound here. In between grand Georgian Bath; historic centres like Taunton, Glastonbury and Wells; pretty rural centres Frome and Yeovil; and seaside charmers Minehead, Weston-super-Mare and Clevedon. The accommodation options here are as varied as the landscapes. We've unearthed some real treasures here from gorgeous country house hotels, to chic little B&Bs, family friendly properties and cosy pubs with rooms. Our pick of the best places to stay in Somerset are scattered all over this historic county — even within the boundaries of Exmoor National Park.

When it comes to sightseeing, Somerset has a lot to offer, and, even though it’s a cliché, there is something for everyone. Longleat is an obvious choice for families (its safari park is legendary), as are Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge, and of course the coastline. Walkers have a tough choice to make between the flat charms of the Somerset Levels, or more rolling landscapes of hills and dales, or dramatic tor-spiked Exmoor, among others. Somerset is littered with historic churches and sites of archaeological interest, including Roman ruins, stone circles, and some impressive Norman castles. The army of appeals makes it hard for our Gurus to pick amongst the best places to stay in Somerset, so you might find it easier to refine your search here and now, and peruse just the best B&Bs in Somerset, Somerset's best pubs-with-rooms, the best boutique hotels in Somerset, best hotels with hot tubs or most romantic hotels.

The Best Places to Stay in Somerset

For a Special Occasion

  • The Royal Crescent Hotel enjoys one of the most famous addresses in Bath, and is hard to beat if you are planning a treat. Situated right in the middle of one of the most jaw-droppingly impressive pieces of architecture in Britain there is little chance of waking up here and wondering where you are. Effortlessly combining traditional and modern interiors, it is a classy delight both inside and out. And the fabulously grown-up spa is a child-free zone.
  • The Queensberry occupies part of an elegant, Georgian terrace in central Bath, and offers 29 individually decorated rooms and suites, with as much grandeur and contemporary comfort as you favour. Each room has all the mod cons of course, plus sash windows and huge bathrooms, Roberts radios and elegant lighting. All have stylish wallpapers and plush soft furnishings, but some have gone further towards the top in ‘over the top’! The hotel has a lovely little garden — which might come as a surprise — a fabulous Michelin starred restaurant (the only one in Bath) also known for its interesting wine list, and several small drawing rooms. The concierge service is excellent.
  • We also love Bath Priory, though stress it is just on the edge of the city and not in the centre. A beautiful Georgian manor on the outside, inside there are 27 luxurious, country house hotel style rooms with all the trimmings, indoor and outdoor pools, a glorious four acre garden — which also supplies the kitchen with vegetables — and a 3AA Rosette restaurant. 

For a Rural Escape

  • Bossington Hall is a beautiful country house turned upmarket B&B in an outstanding location, with breathtaking views over both the coast and Exmoor. The six rooms are smartly done in classic style; not all are en suite, but all have a private bathroom. And there's a family suite which can comfortably accommodate two adults and two children. Superb extras include a tennis court and cinema.
  • The Newt is a boutique country house hotel, converted from a beautiful 17th century stately home, just outside Yeovil. It offers 23 rooms and suites, all individually decorated to make the most of the original features, be that beamed ceilings, panelled walls, marble fireplaces or fancy plasterwork — but with the addition of minimalist design pieces in amongst the antiques. The grounds will charm you too, and there’s an extensive kitchen garden which provides a lot of what’s served in the stylishly minimal restaurant. There’s also a spa in the old cow barn, a farm shop, a cider press for local apples, and a History of Gardening Museum.

Best Country House Hotels

  • The Castle Hotel, Taunton, is a Norman Fortress which has been operated as an inn or hotel since the 12th century. The location is spectacular and the 44 rooms are comfortable and classically decorated, but with all the mod cons. There’s a choice of formal dining or something a bit more relaxed.

For a Mini-Break

  • The Archangel is a sophisticated restaurant with rooms in the quaint market town of Frome. The restaurant specialises in imaginative dishes created from local ingredients, with friendly staff and great attention to detail. The ten hotel rooms above are minimally decorated, but feature quite a bit of bold purple — plus freestanding baths, and gold and velvet detailing. There’s a cosy bar and relaxed library for guests too.
  • The Bird is a quirkily colourful boutique hotel converted from a Victorian mansion, just a short stroll from Bath’s Great Pulteney Street. Each of the 31 rooms and suites, which are spread over four floors, has been individually designed and decorated, with a range of luxurious features that include fine art, vintage memorabilia, and a hot tub. The hotel has a charming lounge for taking afternoon tea, a restaurant known for its local produce, and a hip roof terrace bar.

For Families

  • Homewood is a 21 room country house hotel converted from a charming mansion made from Bath stone, and set on ten acres. This is the sort of hotel you don’t need to leave, with an impressive spa, pool terrace with hot tubs, a standout British restaurant, and pampering packages that play to the whole family. The rooms and suites are big, with individual designs and decor — some have living space and private terraces with a hot tub. Families have plenty of choice, with a number of suites and interconnecting rooms being suitable. You can bring your pets too. 15 minutes from Bath, and 20 minutes from Longleat.
  • If you’re on the look out for an affordable, family friendly property in the centre of Bath try Harington's Hotel, which is located on Queen Street, a cobbled alley very close to the Thermal Baths — in fact Harington’s Hotel is the city's closest hotel to the baths. With just 13 rooms and suites, plus a couple of self-catering apartments, decorated in bright, playful colours, there’s quite a bit of choice for families, and while there’s no restaurant, there are plenty to choose from in the local area. It's even got its own parking — albeit a couple of minutes walk away.

For a West Country Adventure

  • The Old Rectory Hotel is a small relaxed hotel boasting a secluded spot surrounded by National Trust land, close to the Exmoor National Park. The walking options are endless and unsurprisingly scenic. What really makes this property though are the owners, whose attentive hospitality makes this a very welcoming place to stay.
  • Swain House is a creatively converted 18th century shop and townhouse in the seaside town of Watchet — which is where Coleridge wrote The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It has four rooms, which feature National Gallery oil painting murals, king-sized beds and stand-alone bathtubs. A Full English is served daily in the dining room, and there’s a stylish lounge for guests too.

Best Pubs-with-Rooms

  • The Wheatsheaf is a country pub with a fantastic menu and three rustic chic bedrooms, just ten minutes from Bath. The food definitely gets top billing, but the country atmosphere — especially on a sunny day with the garden in full bloom, is blissfully relaxed, and the luxurious details in the rooms might surprise you. If you need even more than huge beds, covered in Egyptian linens and down duvets, then you can arrange an in-room massage or beauty treatment.
  • The Crooked Swan is an 18th century inn in Crewkerne, renovated to keep it fresh and stylish, but still retaining its original charm. The bar and restaurant are popular with locals; the eight bedrooms upstairs have been stripped back to make the most of their original features and industrial style en-suites have been added.
  • The Swan is a great little pub in the pretty town of Wedmore, close to the Mendip Hills AONB. The food is a big draw here, created by an acclaimed chef, and sourced locally, and the pub itself is friendly and unfussy. Upstairs, the seven rooms are larger and brighter than you might expect from the exterior, with white walls and unfussy, but luxurious looking decor.
  • Found in the picturesque village of Dunster, the Luttrell Arms is a superb hotel. The hotel offers delightful rooms, an atmospheric bar and an excellent restaurant. Surrounded by the beauty of Exmoor National Park, it's a great option for a weekend escape.
  • The Crown is a charming 17th-century former coaching inn. The surprisingly grand rooms are decorated with antique pieces, like Empire style armchairs, dark woods and ornate fabrics. The restaurant, serving real ales and traditional pub grub, is a highlight.
  • The Rising Sun is a 14th-century thatched building offering picturesque views of Lynmouth harbour. The pub’s rooms are cosy and traditional. The restaurant, with its wood-burning stove, is the perfect spot to return to after a day spent outdoors, and serves classic British pub fare,

For Foodies

  • Number One Bruton is a twelve room boutique hotel in the pretty village of Bruton, with a farm-to-fork restaurant created in collaboration with Michelin starred chef, Merlin Labron-Johnson. Beyond the incredible food — much of it grown locally by the team — are charmingly decorated rooms, with period accents and a country house feel.

Best B&Bs

  • Bathen House is a converted Edwardian villa in Bath with 13 glamorous rooms, decorated with classic style in pastel shades. It exudes old fashioned luxury, from the marble bathrooms to the chandeliers. Breakfasts are just as indulgent as the rest of the details.
  • Mount Pleasant Farm is a charming B&B, converted from an old farmhouse and still surrounded by woods and fields, just outside an historic village. There are four rooms, individually decorated with an eclectic array of antiques, vintage pieces, wallpaper, art and fabrics — the effect is cheerful and contemporary, with a country air. The host has the same excellent cheer, and makes a great breakfast.

Prefer a Private Apartment or Cottage?

  • If you'd prefer the privacy of a self-catering option then browse through the wide variety available online with our partner, Booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Bristol Airport is Somerset’s largest regional airport, but Exeter Airport and Bournemouth Airport are also worth considering — depending on your final destination — as is Heathrow, which is only a few hours away by road or rail.
  • If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
  • There are places in Somerset you’ll want to return to year round. Bath is busy in the summer, with Americans on Grand Tours, and the Jane Austen Festival in September; Frome is busy in the school holidays, as is Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, and Weston-Super-Mare, and there are all sorts of reasons to visit Somerset’s other pretty centres. Enjoy windswept walks when the colours change in Autumn, or stroll through fields of daffodils or bluebells in Spring.
