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. If you're looking for the best places to stay in Somerset, you've come to the right place...

The coastal resorts at Minehead, Weston-super-Mare and Clevedon make for a great bucket and spade holiday whilst the historic towns of Taunton and Yeovil and the many rural villages provide accommodation of quality that is comfortable, interesting and great value.

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.

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

What not to miss

  • Wander around the beautiful city of Bath taking in the gorgeous architecture and visiting splendid sights such as the Roman Baths.
  • Hike all over Exmoor National Park to revel in the area's stunning natural beauty. Forget about all your worries as you head off on long reinvigorating hikes, whilst a visit to Dunster Castle is a must.
  • If you're into archaeology and history then be sure to visit the Wookey Hole Caves, demonstrating evidence of human activity from 60,000 years ago!
  • Whether you're religious or not, the gothic 12th-century Wells Cathedral is an absolutely breathtaking building.

All 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" escape.

Rural Hotspots

  • The Talbot Inn in Mells, a sister pub to the popular Beckford Arms in Wiltshire, is run with all the style, comfort and great food that has made the Beckford Arms so popular. Modern but rural with natural materials and soothing homely fabrics setting off the clean white walls and wood and stone floors. Being at the Talbot is like staying with your fun-est grooviest, most hospitable country cousin. Food is local, expertly prepared and imaginative.

  • 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.

  • When talking about Somerset's rural hotspots, you'd be amiss not to mention The Pig Near Bath. This Grade II listed building exudes character and offers chic, spacious accommodation furnished in a boutique manner. Tuck into terrific meals at the restaurant who source all food from within a 25 mile radius of the property! A superb country escape.

  • Of a similar ilk (if slightly more opulent), the 15th-century manor house Langford Fivehead blends original interior features with slightly more contemporary boutique furnishings. Meals at the Langford Restaurant are produced depending on what's fresh that day thereby creating a daily changing menu, with much of the fruit and veg even grown on site. Enjoy games of croquet on the lawns with a glass of Pimms in hand - what could be more British than that?


  • The Kennard This smart Georgian townhouse 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 - what more could you ask for? 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 3 AA Rosette 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 Michelin starred 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 Street, 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!

  • Tasburgh House - If you fancy something a little more secluded then this is the place for you. Situated a short distance outside the centre of town and surrounded by 7 acres of garden, this spot provides smart and unfussy accommodation at a decent price. Head off on any number of walks around the area or enjoy a round of golf nearby.

  • 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.

With a Double Gold Award from the 2014 Taste of the West Awards, their food’s not to be scoffed at - rather, it’s to be scoffed down!

  • 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 amiss not to head off on long romantic walks of the area.

This Norman Fortress in the centre of Taunton is utterly charming with its exterior covered in beautiful creeper 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 grub and relax by the fire! A splendid experience.
