A weekend away in Somerset was just what we needed; in terms of getting away for a couple of days. Though of course all good things must come to and end! However, on the way home; we stopped off at once of our favourite hidden gems in Lifton Devon, Dingles Heritage Fairground…
We really enjoy it here, and it’s a great indoor attraction for all the family! Whether you want to check out some amazing fairground history, or have fun on some genuine vintage rides!

We had planned to visit two national trust sites on the Saturday of our weekend in Somerset; though after a morning at Montacute House; we finished looking around Barrington Court at around 3pm. We figured we had just enough time to visit somewhere else! So we headed to the nearby Lytes Cary Manor…
I have to say, we’re so glad to have National Trust membership; because it made this busy day of visiting sites SO easy! (Not to mention affordable)!

Recently we spent the weekend in Somerset, just to get away for a couple of days. Staying in the pretty village of Montacute. After a morning at Montacute House, we hopped into the car and drove the 10 miles to Barrington Court a Tudor Manor house near Ilminster.
We’re on a bit of a budget at the moment, and so we decided to check out a couple of nearby National Trust sites, as we are members, so get free entry to lots of sites in the UK, which of course we haven’t explored before!

There’s nothing like a break away, and we recently had a weekend away in Somerset, staying in the pretty village of Montacute. Where better to start the first day of our trip; than the property a mere five minute walk from where we stayed: Montacute House.
After going to Haynes Motor Museum on the way, before reaching our B&B that evening. On our first proper day, we set out to visit a couple of National Trust sites nearby to enjoy a relaxed sunny Saturday…

This year, instead of heading out of the UK, we visited Somerset. There were a few places we had talked about wanting to visit, and having limited time off work; it seemed the perfect choice to have a break away, on a bit of a budget. On our way up to Somerset, we decided to stop at Haynes Motor Museum.
We booked a B&B in the village on Montacute; and headed up on the Friday, to return on Sunday. Filling three days with about as much activity as we could!

It’s Travel announcement time! We’re off on a little UK mini break to Somerset! We try to get away a couple of times a year; just to blow away the cobwebs and explore somewhere new!
We’ve been to Somerset a few times, though we’re trying to head to new places, so it’s still an adventure!
We are headed to Somerset, mostly because it’s not too far away from Cornwall; but far enough that it feels like a real break! Our plan is to find a nice B&B; and just head out to enjoy the surrounding area for a couple of days!
