Our most popular places to stay in Somerset are in the much-visited Georgian city of Bath, with its Roman Baths and associations with Jane Austen. It lies in the far north-east corner of the county. After London, this is the most expensive place to stay in the British Isles. The county also offers fine walking on the upland moors of Exmoor, which extends across the border from Devon. It is threaded with pretty combes – steep river valleys offering shelter and pasture. Close by, the coastline around Porlock has dramatic cliffs and is also great for walking. Outside these areas Somerset is a rural county of farmland and rolling hills, including the Mendips and the Quantocks.
