Strawberryfield Park is set right in the heart of Somerset’s rolling countryside, and that means there are plenty of ways to relax and explore the county when you’re not busy unwinding in your home from home. Whether you’re planning some downtime just the two of you, or a stay with friends, a Somerset break is a great opportunity to get outside and do something different. With wide open spaces that’ll inspire you to plan those busy days making memories, Somerset has something for everyone.
Explore on foot
Somerset could have been made for walkers. With everything from the beautiful Mendip Hills to the cobbled streets of Wells, there’s a stroll to suit every kind of visitor. The city of Wells is just a short drive away from the resort, and you can pick up a guided walk around the city to make sure you don’t miss anything. If you don’t fancy venturing too far from your lodge (and who can blame you if you don’t), the Draycott Sleights walk is a moderate trail covering three miles. Why not pack a picnic and make a day of it?
Hop on a bike
There’s something about a break from it all that has us packing up a rucksack and hopping onto a bike for the day, and what a place to do it. No matter what the season, the Somerset countryside is full of safe, easy cycle routes with views that’ll take your breath away.
If you only do one bike ride during your Somerset holiday, why not drive the short journey to Cheddar Gorge and experience the thrill of cycling through it? You’ll be able to park the car right under the gorge and then take in the dramatic scenery from your saddle, and all before wandering into the village of Cheddar for a well-deserved drink.
Take in some history
We love the fact that there’s no county quite like Somerset. With its very own character, a thriving food scene and landmarks you just won’t find anywhere else, the county also stands out for its varied history. Make sure you put one day aside (at least) to discover some of the area’s fascinating attractions during your stay.
Cheddar Gorge may be striking, but it’s also home to some of the UK’s most important historic caves. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the gorge and caves are a world-famous natural wonder. The caves were created over millions of years by Ice Age meltwaters, and they’re well worth a visit during your stay at Strawberryfield.
