Family days out

There is so much for families to do while visiting this area.  It could be you fancy a walk and picnic on the Quantocks, taking in the stunning scenery surrounding you or fossil hunting on local beaches followed by a pint of local cider or a cream tea?

Whatever you want from your holiday, there is something nearby for all the family to enjoy.

You will see below a list of ideas that we have put together for you and your family to choose from.
