10 things to do in Somerset in the Christmas Holidays

Around the big day itself, it can be great to take some time out of eating, drinking, and watching Christmas specials on the telly and get out and about during the time off from work and school. There is plenty to do in Somerset to get you off the sofa and top up your fresh air, culture, and education or fun levels this holiday.

Better still why not plan a pre-Christmas break here at Middlewick and book one of our Spa Packages to go alongside it.
