Things To Do Glamping In Somerset

Somerset has lots to offer for different kinds of glampers. The county has endless idyllic woods and moors for quiet walks. If you like staying on your feet, there are plenty of lakes where you can practice your angling skills. And for more adventurous glampers, there are exciting trails that are waiting to be explored – on horseback! So, if you’re glamping in Somerset for the first time, don’t forget to check these out:

Have a quiet afternoon fishing.

Glamping is all about getting in touch with nature and that includes fishing! There are many fisheries and lakes across Somerset for you to visit, and maybe catch a fish or two for dinner. Numerous glamping sites are also located near lakes for easy access to the waters. And with the county’s active angling community, you won’t run out of places to rent out boats and fishing equipment!

Don’t forget to capture nature’s beauty.

When going on a glamping trip, always remember to bring your camera! You’ll probably be going around town, visiting local spots, and taking scenic walks, so it’s important to capture nature’s beauty in all its glory. If you’re documenting plants or animals, you can take photos, print them out, and make a scrapbook later. For more spontaneous moments, a polaroid camera works best. This way, you’ll always have fond memories of your trip to look back on when you go home.

Take horse riding lessons.

One of Somerset’s biggest nature parks is Quantock Hills. It’s a favourite glamping spot with acres of beautiful heathlands and oak woodlands. Aside from the usual walking trails, you can also enjoy this reserve by taking horse riding lessons or exploring the land on horseback! Visit Quantock Trekking where you can experience the rest of Quantock on four legs.

Have lots of fun flying kites.

Need ideas for the beach other than swimming or surfing? Try flying some kites! The vast sandy dunes and strong winds are perfect for running around and tossing your kites up to the sky. You can also make a competition out of it! Make your own kites at the glamping site and race them at the beach. Some places let you rent kite buggies as well, so you can explore the beach on four wheels. This idea is a guaranteed hit with both kids and grown-ups, and before you know it, you had spent the entire afternoon kite racing.

Observe wildlife on nature walks.

Somerset’s crown jewel is Exmoor National Park, a massive landscape consisting of farmlands, moorlands, and woodlands. The park caters to walkers of all levels with various trails ranging from short walks to long-distance routes. Exmoor is also a thriving ecosystem with deers, wild ponies, and numerous insects living on its lands. Glampers who love wildlife will surely love this one-of-a-kind experience!

Take a nap in your hammock.

If you want to take it slow, naps on the hammock are the best! Remember that your glamping trip is all about rest and relaxation, so there’s no guilt in not doing anything and just enjoying the view. Spend the afternoon under the sun with a good book, a soft breeze on your face, and without worries about your next agenda. After a good nap, you’ll surely feel refreshed and energized to continue the rest of your holiday!
