Travel: Somerset

by Jane Hayward on Thursday, 1 March 2012

Inside story The interior has all the atmosphere you'd hope for from a 15th-century cottage, plus hotel-style smarts.

Step out Browse the village's quaint shops. Stroll Dunster Castle's subtropical gardens, take the mile-long walk to the coastal path or the Tall Trees Trail, for glorious Exmoor views from Bat's Castle.

Eat and drink Reward all that walking with a cream tea at Locks Victorian Tea Rooms. Or round off a day on Exmoor around a super country inn, such as the Royal Oak at Luxborough.
