There’s more to Somerset than Glastonbury, cheese and cider (though it’s a bit of a foodie heaven), with gorgeous houses and villages, cool towns, cutting edge art, the Somerset Levels, Exmoor, its own Jurassic north coast – and the World Heritage City of Bath.
The best of both worlds in this 'village' to the south of the city centre, with a lovely community feel and lots of indy shops – yet with everything the World Heritage City of Bath has to offer on your doorstep.
Get back to nature at the gateway to Exmoor, one of the UK's most spectacular natural landscapes, and close to the North Devon coast.
The community-minded town’s packed with arty, artisan indy businesses and cafes, and hosts the best street market in the West.
The Notting Hill of the South West has more than its fair share of cultural highlights, great food and famous people.
Independently minded, lively little seaside town overlooking the Bristol Channel and beyond, with elegant Victorian villas, indy shops and eateries, possibly the country's prettiest pier – and only 15 miles from Bristol.
The small town has a bit of a European vibe with an historic market square, wide, tree-lined streets, old stone houses and a clutch of indy shops.
Bustling village set above the Somerset Levels – it's often called the Isle of Wedmore – and close to the Mendips Hills, with over 50 clubs and societies, they say.
England's smallest city is fast becoming the South West's go-to place for festivals with annual food, comedy, theatre and literary fests.
