No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshireâ€™s dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorsetâ€™s coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset â€“ their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.
Bristol may not seem an obvious holiday choice, but National Trust Cottages in this area give visitors the chance to experience the many attractions of this historic city and its surrounds. Just outside Bristol and overlooking the beautiful Land Yeo Valley is the spectacular Victorian country mansion of Tyntesfield, an extraordniary Gothic revival extravaganza bristling with towers and turrets. Closer to the city itself is the unique Blaise Hamlet, designed by John Nash to accommodate the Blaise Estate pensioners and now a collection of nine different picturesque cottages around an enclosed lawned area. Not only does a stay in this area provide the opportunity to visit bustling Bristol and elegant Bath, but also the depths of rural Somerset, glorious Gloucestershire and the rolling Cotswold hills. National Trust properties in the area include Dyrham Park, Tyntesfield, Clevedon Court and Prior Park Landscape Gardens. Other attractions include Bristol and Bath for their well-known sights, shopping at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol Zoo, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole caves, Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands and Badminton Horse Trials.
