With the sun shining and the countryside blooming, Somerset is a wonderful place for a relaxing summer holiday.

Here at Cossington Park, the gardens are in full bloom and look beautiful. The walled vegetable garden is bursting with produce for guests to enjoy. Summer berries, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, and courgettes are particularly popular.

Summer is the best time of year to enjoy the gardens which are perfect for play, relaxation, or al fresco dining.

When you can tear yourself away from the house, there’s lots of going around Somerset. Here are just a few highlights.
