Somerset

A county of rich farmland, gentle, rolling and wooded with huge views. It's a treasure-land of stately homes with lovely gardens and golden, sleepy hamstone villages. There are splendid hills with huge views for walking and cycling, and along one ridge a steam railway chugs to big beaches on the Bristol Channel coast. Bath is a special city, beautiful and historic.

A great service . I will use the service again.
