Visitors come to Somerset for a variety of different reasons. Many enjoy the outdoor activities on offer in the spectacular national parks like Exmoor National Park, and in the Mendips and Quantocks. The long northern coastline is ideal for water sports of all kinds, and culture vultures love the galleries and museum of Bath and the abbeys and castles that sprinkle the countryside. The choice of accommodation is extensive here too, from independent and historic hotels to cosy B&Bs, guesthouses and boutique establishments with all the trimmings. On your next visit, and for a taste of the high life, try staying at a Somerset luxury hotel.
Luxury Hotels in Somerset
Luxury Somerset hotels such as The Lordleaze Hotel in Chard and Gable Lodge Guest House in Lynton offer the very finest in services and facilities. These are very often small, exclusive establishments with just a handful of guestrooms, enabling a much better level of personalised service which regular guests appreciate and expect. If you choose a luxury hotel in one of Somerset's two cities, Bath and Wells, you'll have a comfortable and flexible base and quick access to the sights and entertainment venues of these popular tourist destinations. With a themed room and stylish furnishings everything's in place for an enjoyable Somerset break.
Somerset Luxury Hotels for Fine Regional Food
Somerset is famed for its regional cuisine that's both seasonal and organic, and luxury hotels in the county make a point of serving local specialties as a standard part of their service. Their restaurants and chefs often attract visitors from across the county and beyond, and slow cooking is one of the attractions for gourmets. The climate of the West Country is also ideal for vineyards, and regional vintages are fast becoming a standard fixture on luxury hotel wine lists in Somerset.
With typically fewer than 10 guestrooms, the personal touch is very much in evidence at Somerset luxury hotels. The extra facilities such as an indoor pool come second only to the degree of personalised attention offered to guests, which is usually the main reason for their choosing to stay here.
