Cooksbridge Chapel is ideally located for exploring the coast, towns or countryside. Somerset has an incredible variety of things to do, for nature lovers, walkers, bird watchers, history buffs, foodies, shopaholics or to simply idle away the time away at a country pub or strolling along the beach.
It is one of the undiscovered counties of the UK, with something to delight everyone, from Glastonbury to the Guy Fawkes carnivals in November, historic towns such as Wells, beautiful countryside nearby like the Cheddar Gorge and don't forget the cider and cheese!
Local and nearby places of interest:
Cheddar (3 miles) Cheddar's majestic Gorge and extensive cave system need no introduction – and neither does its ubiquitous cheese! With a multitude of visitor centres, there is plenty for the visitor to do in Cheddar indoors and out, and the charming medieval town of Axbridge lies just beyond.
Wells (8 miles away) England's smallest city is an architectural and shopper's delight. Water (from Wells' well!) runs alongside the pretty streets and Market Square. Visit the imposing medieval cathedral and Bishop's Palace as well as the many shops, pubs and restaurants.
Weston-super-Mare (15 miles) a popular resort since Victorian times and thanks to its sandy golden beaches, views over to the Welsh coast and a whole host of attractions, it maintains its pull. Other Somerset seaside resorts at Burnham-on-Sea, Brean Down and Clevedon are also nearby.
Bristol (23 miles) and Bath (34 miles) Bristol is a handsome city boasting a rich heritage, including Isambard Kingdom Brunel's iconic Suspension Bridge and the restored splendour of the SS Great Britain. Bath's Georgian terraces and Roman baths are a must-see for any visitor to the West Country.
The Somerset Levels
The Somerset Levels – a unique and mysterious landscape of flat, drained marshland. Amid the looming mounds of peat and from within the withy-beds and drainage 'rhynes' there is a very rich wildlife. There are a number of wildlife and bird reserves here, including Shapwick Heath – noted for its mass starling roosts, a true natural splendor!
Visitors in November should really try to catch some of the carnival processions held in most of the Somerset towns. The carnivals are an amazing spectacle, hundreds of floats and costumed pedestrians and as much glitz as you'd find in New Orleans!
Glastonbury Mythical Avalon is Britain's spiritual centre and home to the Glastonbury Tor & Abbey and the legendary international music festival.
