What I Did On My Holidays (by Amy, age 25 1/2)

11 March, 2013

Time for a few photos. Last week, my partner and I had a weekend away in the county of Somerset, enjoying the lovely countryside and towns, a lovely B&B and some not-so-lovely grey, dreary weather (you can’t haven’t everything when holidaying in the UK, it seems). Here’s what we got up to.

We visited the historic town of Wells, browsed its market, circled its cathedral and visited the oldest intact residential street in Europe.

Next we visited Cheddar Gorge

…and saw goats!

In a rare moment of sunshine, we stopped at the impressive Stanton Drew stone circle, the second largest Neolithic stone circle (after Avebury) in the UK. (I’m in this one for scale!)

And on our last day, we managed a five mile walk around the estate and gardens at Stourhead, with its follies and grottoes galore (pictured is the Temple of Apollo).

There really is an impressive and varied amount to do and see in this particular corner of the UK, so we’re hoping to go back for a second visit – with better weather next time, hopefully!
