Join us on this festive holiday to Somerset’s Cricket St Thomas. Somerset really is a county that has it all. Even though it is ranked seventh in the UK for size, it isn’t close to being the most highly populated, meaning there are large unspoilt areas ready to be explored. The area is famous for its beautiful buildings, villages and market towns, and a rich heritage of history and legend. After our days out exploring the local attractions, the enjoyable festive food and entertainment provided by Warner will have you feeling relaxed and ready for the festive season ahead.

Day One – This morning we head South East to our hotel, with a comfort stop on route.
Day Two – This morning, we head to the eclectic, unusual town of Glastonbury. Mention Glastonbury, and the first thing that comes to mind is the world-famous music festival. But it is so much more than that. With its Abbey, known as the burial place of King Arthur, and the Glastonbury Tor, as well as unusual independent shops, it’s well worth a visit. This afternoon, we head to the ancient town of Shepton Mallet, dating back to Roman times. For years, the town was the centre of production for several leading UK brands such as Mulberry, Thatchers and Brothers cider makers and Babysham sparkling wine. You may decide to shop at the swish outlet village at the former Mulberry factory. Or, choose to visit Britain’s oldest prison, now a unique attraction. (Entry fee not included).
Day Three – This morning, we will head North East, where you will have to decide whether to explore the vibrant market town of Yeovil or to stay on board the coach and head to the Yeovil Railway Centre, which also has a visitor centre, shop and café. This afternoon, we will head back to the hotel, with a stop at Perry’s Cider Mill, which has been open since 1920. We will visit the heart of the company, where all the apples are grown, pressed, fermented, matured and packaged.
Day Four – This morning, we will head to the exciting town of Dorchester. Known as having “one foot in the past and one foot firmly in the future”, you will find some of the country’s best-preserved Roman ruins, moments away from a thriving high street. This is a vibrant town for sightseeing, shopping and brunching. This afternoon, we will head back to the hotel, at your leisure.
Day Five – It is time to head home, with a comfort stop on the way.
