Places, people, adventures...

If you're looking for the coolest stuff in Somerset, you've found it!
Whether it's places to visit for a special day out, gorgeous pubs and restaurants to while away your Sunday in, or talented people making brilliant local crafts and produce, we'll share the unique stories of Somerset -

There might also be the odd blog about attempting to learn to garden and grow organic veg!
Plot spoiler... we're not what you'd call naturals! :) 

Somerset cool turned one year old in January (woo hoo!) and we'd like to thank everyone who's been a part of the adventure so far. We can't wait to share the out of the ordinary things happening in this stunning part of the world, throughout 2017.
