What is Down Somerset Way all about?

Hello! I’m Angharad, a freelance travel writer who upped sticks from Bristol (where I lived for 20 years) and moved to South Somerset with my husband and three children in August 2021.

As we settled into country life, I was blown away by the local attractions, eateries, watering holes and events taking place in a county that often takes a backseat to Devon, Dorset and Cornwall. A blogger and intrepid local explorer, with experience in writing and creating content to encourage people to explore certain destinations, I made it my mission to make people aware of the fantastic experiences on offer in Somerset.

So, whether you’re looking for UK holiday inspiration, already planning a holiday to the area, a regular visitor or a local resident, this will be the go-to website for things to do in Somerset.
