Taunton is the county town of Somerset, sitting in the southwest of this rural area. If you like shopping, you'll find plenty of independent shops and shopping precincts to explore. You'll also have plenty of great attractions to enjoy, like the Museum of Somerset which is set in Taunton Castle in the centre of town. If you want to get out and about, booking one of our big cottages in Taunton is a great choice. For some gentle walks, try Vivary Park with its Victorian bandstand, or for hiking, you'll only be 15 minutes away from the rolling Quantock Hills.
