B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Just south of the slopes of the Mendips is the exquisite little city of Wells: nearby is the famous Abbey at Glastonbury: further west, by the Quantocks and Exmoor, are charming resorts such as Watchet and Minehead. And it’s not too far for a look at the popular Bristol Channel resort of Weston-super-Mare or to see the important sights of Bath. The days out on this itinerary are planned to allow plenty of time to see them all on autumn days



WESSEX HOTEL . In Street, best known for Clark’s Shopping Village, the hotel’s rooms are large, modern and have new bathrooms and new furniture. All the usual facilities are standard. The Olive Tree Restaurant serves locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and you can enjoy a pre or post dinner drink in a cosy bar or out on the terrace if the weather is suitable.
