About Somerset

There is more to Somerset than famous music festivals and cider. From the long sweeping beaches of its coast to the rolling hills of its interior, Somerset is dotted with pretty and interesting places. Cities such as Bath are among England's most characterful, whilst the region as a whole contains a huge number of charming little historic towns. The county's relative proximity to London has made it somewhat of a hotspot for Londoners escaping the city which, in turn, has brought about a boom in chic rural boutique hotels and guest houses many of which our Gurus recommend as the best places to stay in Somerset.

Where to stay - which town/area?

Its patchwork of historic towns and unspoilt villages provide a diverse selection of places to stay in Somerset, all in beautiful settings.

  • The coastal resorts at Minehead, Weston-super-Mare and Clevedon make for a great bucket and spade holiday
  • Whilst the historic towns of Taunton, Wells and Yeovil and the many rural villages provide accommodation of quality that are cosy and great value too.
  • Somerset's interior hosts a National Park and three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Levels and Moors are a rural idyll, where traditional crafts and local ciders still epitomize West Country life.

Some of our Somerset collections

For our list of the best places to stay in Somerset, we have selected a wide choice from the ever-growing range of stylish pubs with rooms to smart and cool country house hotels, favourite hang-outs of townies looking for a spot of "rural" life.

The Best Places to Stay in Somerset

For a rural idyll

  • Stoberry House is the ideal weekend escape, combining superb location and style. This B&B is just a short walk away from Wells whilst both Bath and Salisbury are also within easy access. Enjoy high tea in the charming garden and bespoke dinner menus can even be arranged. There are a number of fantastic walking trails surrounding the property.

For Bath

  • The Kennard is a smart Georgian townhouse which evokes the memories of bygone years with its ornate furnishings and elegant garden. Just minutes from the city’s sights, it’s the perfect option for those looking to see all that Bath has to offer - whilst the quiet atmosphere and splendour of its interiors create a wonderfully romantic setting.

  • Harrington’s Hotel boasts a central location, free parking (a few minutes away), family rooms and self-catering apartments across the road. Whilst there may be no restaurant, given its location this isn’t an issue and it’ll even force you to try out a variety of Bath’s eateries! Harrington’s may not be Bath’s most elegant hotel but with a hot tub available to rent and great value accommodation, it’s certainly one of the best all-round choices.

  • The Queensberry - this chic townhouse on Georgian Terrace is the ideal spot for those wanting a touch of style but without breaking the bank. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, if perhaps lacking a touch of opulence found in other nearby choices. The bar is a splendid place to relax with a drink and get to know your fellow visitors, whilst their Michelin starred Olive Tree restaurant is worth the money alone!

  • The Halcyon Hotel Apartments If you’re on a family or group trip, this is the spot for you! The Halcyon offers smart apartments in the city centre - just a stone’s throw from most of Bath’s attractions. The spacious apartments are decorated in a smart and contemporary style, well lit and with every convenience covered. Unwind in the basement’s Circo bar after a day out exploring the area. There’s definitely a fun and lively feel to the place!

  • Bath Priory - This stunning Georgian manor boasts lavish interiors mimicking the classic English country-house style. Wander around their 4 acre landscaped garden, make use of the indoor or outdoor pools and be sure to give their award winning restaurant a visit. Simply divine - you’ll have a hard time not enjoying your stay at this wonderfully romantic spot.

  • The Royal Crescent - Set in two houses centrally located along Bath’s famous Royal Crescent, this upmarket choice features four-poster beds, marble bathrooms and an array of antiques. Head off exploring around town or wander through the garden, whilst a visit to their state of the art spa facilities is a must if you feel like a spot of rejuvenation!

  • MacDonald Bath Spa Hotel - This 5* Georgian mansion is a stunning stay complete with original interiors, elegant furnishings and a top of the range spa to boot. Wander into town in just ten minutes but, with such great service on your doorstep, you could be forgiven for spending your day at the hotel! Splendid food served up at the restaurant. A real blast from the past.

For a romantic stay

  • The intimate Devonshire Arms is a typical example of the new 'pub with rooms' style of accommodation. This former hunting lodge features a typical quiet country pub downstairs with their restaurant serving up wonderful food, and the surrounding area is filled with a wide variety of splendid walking trails. Its quiet atmosphere, bright contemporary rooms, friendly feel and great location make it a lovely choice for a romantic getaway.

  • The quaint market town of Frome exudes charm and character without the pretension of Bath. Nestled away here is Archangel, a restaurant with rooms that's ideal for a couples trip. The accommodation boldly fuses original architecture with contemporary furnishings and there's colourful artwork adorning the walls. Curl up with a good book in the well-stocked library, whilst gourmet meals at the restaurant are an absolute must!

  • Cross Lane House provides the ultimate romantic B&B getaway, offering homely and chic accommodation in an utterly charming setting. This quintessentially English spot is located in the midst of Exmoor National Park so there's no excuse not to spend your days heading off on long walks around the area! Enjoy scrumptious meals made using locally sourced produce and their spacious, smartly decorated rooms are perfect for any couple's trip.

  • Elegance without opulence, the Georgian Little Barwick House is yet another lovely restaurant (3 AA Rosettes) with rooms, just outside Yeovil. The property offers charming but unfussy accommodation amid a beautifully tended three-acre garden, and there are numerous activities and sights close by.

  • The Queen’s Arms is a delightful traditional inn located in the village of Corton Denham. Its smart interiors, roaring fire and deep sofas give it a homely feel and, what with such gorgeous surroundings, you’d be mad not to head off on long romantic walks of the area. Dogs are welcome in the bar and there’s even a room for them to stay in overnight. Bold British dishes are served up at the restaurant whilst there are even tennis courts available to help you work off some of the food! A top rural spot.

For great value

  • The Red Lion Inn provides six tasteful and inexpensive rooms in a traditional thatched-roof country pub setting. The restaurant serves up award-winning food using local ingredients to produce a daily changing menu. What's more, given its location just 5 minutes off the A303 it's an ideal stopover spot!

  • Grays is stylish yet unpretentious, situated in a quiet residential spot yet close enough to all that Bath city centre has to offer. This lovely property offers extremely chic, spacious and well-lit accommodation as well as having a no children under the age of 12 policy (to ensure a bit of peace and quiet!) Traditional British breakfasts are served every morning to set you up for the day.

For luxury

  • There’s nothing more luxurious than staying in a castle, and that’s exactly what you’ll get at The Castle Hotel! This Norman Fortress in the centre of Taunton is utterly charming with its creeper-clad exterior and an impressive stone staircase leading up to the rooms. Head off to Exmoor National Park and spend your day hiking before returning to tuck into terrific food and relax by the fire! A splendid experience.
