Our Things to Do Guide is also great to for planning days out in South Somerset and beyond, and is free to download to your phone or tablet. South Somerset is a great place to stay as there's so much to do, and close by too, so we've included some other places nearby that we think you'll enjoy too.
Similarly, based on visitor feedback, you'll find website listings here for the wider areas that border South Somerset to make it as easy as possible for you when planning your time here.
Coates English Willow, Willow & Wetlands Visitor Centre
Willow is as traditional to Somerset as cheese and cider although perhaps not so much is known about it. At the Visitor Centre the Coate family has thoughtfully put together displays and collections to tell the fascinating story of willow.
Crewkerne & District Museum & Heritage Centre
Crewkerne has a long and interesting history. It once had the status of being a Saxon royal mint, was an important stopping place for travellers and its thriving textile industry brought prosperity. Founded in 1988, the museum illustrates these things, but equally shows how ordinary local people lived and worked at various periods.
Flip Out Somerset
Flip Out Somerset is a state of the art trampoline adventure park, situated just 1 mile from Junction 26 on the M5 motorway. The arena is 36,000 square feet and is packed with exciting equipment that allows us to provide a host of different courses.
