The rural county of Somerset is a fine place to explore at any time of the year. Visit in autumn or winter and you can expect to miss the tourists and holidaymakers who flock to its coastline for the sand and sea breezes or those preparing to hike their way around the county via the Exmoor National Park. In fact, you can expect to have the coastline and the countryside almost to yourself. You can enjoy the drama of the scenery in wintery weather, not to mention a fireside meal in a cosy pub, while the shops and restaurants will be all the better for being quieter and less crowded. They’ll be more space for you and anyone else who travels with you to experience the ‘real’ Somerset.
Another aspect of travel which is made easier from having fewer holidaymakers is finding accommodation. Out of season it’s much easier to bag yourself a decent place to stay, and this is especially important if you don’t get around to booking somewhere until the last moment.
If Glastonbury is your preferred destination in Somerset then Manor Farm Glastonbury has accommodation for you. Self-catered, comfortable, private and surrounded by beautiful countryside, we have a cottage available to rent and we have The Bothy, a detached studio which sleeps up to three people.
