When you're planning a day out from your Somerset hotel in the region of the Mendips, consider dropping in to Kilver Court.

There are many different accommodation options in the region, including independent hotels, B&Bs and a great selection of family-run guesthouses.
A Day at Kilver Court from a Somerset Hotel
The Kilver Court modern shopping complex is housed in old mill buildings near Shepton Mallet in the Mendips. People flock here for the designer outlets, which offer anything up to 60% off the RRP. Unbeatable prices and the best choices in lifestyle, interiors and fashion bring visitors from across the region and beyond looking for bargains and a great day out. If your Somerset hotel is nearby you'll have everything on your doorstep, but the road connections here are so good that you'll have no trouble getting to Kilver Court from further afield, if that's where your guesthouse or B&B is. People come to relax as well as to shop, and the complex has excellent cafés and pleasant places to sit, especially in the famous gardens.
Somerset Hotels near Kilver Court Gardens
If you're booked in to a hotel like The Bower Inn at Bridgwater or Burnthouse Farm B&B at Highbridge you'll easily be able to access Kilver Court for its shopping and lovely gardens. Explore beautifully laid out herbaceous borders, parterre, the millpond and Charlton Viaduct. It's a real secret garden in the Mendips and makes a great day out for the whole family from your Somerset hotel or B&B. Ernest Jardine, an enlightened local industrialist, created the gardens more than a century ago to provide his workforce with an inspirational atmosphere. Later, in the 1960s, the Showering family came into possession of the garden, and was responsible for transforming the gardens into their present state. They cover three acres and are exquisitely maintained throughout the year, and as they're so close to the nearby designer outlets the balance of shopping and relaxation is just right!
