Rolling hills, coastline, and open expanses of flat land — Somerset has it all. Small cathedral cities, Roman heritage, and picturesque villages dot the countryside, which is filled with 3 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fortunately, residents of Somerset are milder than average weather for the UK, which means opportunities to take advantage of miles of coast, horse riding in the countryside, or cycling around the area. Somerset is famed for its cheeses and ciders, and is also home to the Glastonbury Festival — the UK’s most famous music festival. Somerset has excellent transport links, by road, by train, and by air at Bristol Airport.
