If you want to experience the real English countryside then few places offer a better example than Somerset. From the gentle pace of day-to-day life, to the endless broad fields and haystacks, cattle and combine harvesters, to the hundreds of tiny picturesque villages and cottage gardens, ivy clad pubs and windy country lanes, Somerset is certainly the county to get away from it all.
That's not to say there is no excitement there. Head over to the caves at Wookey Hole which have been used by humans for over 50,000 years and are surely the most spectacular (and eerie) caves in all of the UK. Alternatively there is the awesome Cheddar Gorge, a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills and site of numerous caves with fantastic stalactites and stalagmites.
The near vertical cliff faces of the gorge and the steep grassy slopes make for an awe-inspiring landscape and it is no surprise that Cheddar Gorge was recently voted the second greatest natural wonder in all of Britain.
And if the combination of Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge was not enough, Somerset also features Exmoor National Park, an incredible area of wide open moorland, coast and countryside. Exmoor is famous for its wild red deer and Exmoor ponies and is one of the UK's finest National Parks with several areas declared Sites of Special Scientific Interest because of their flora and fauna.
From Exmoor to the Brendon Hills to the Quantocks, Somerset has some of the UK's best scenery. It also has some of the most historical sites, from Cadbury Castle to Glastonbury Abbey and towns and villages from Wells to Taunton. As if that wasn't enough there are the cities of Exeter and Bath, famous world-wide.
From the cathedral and roman remains in Exeter (and its wonderful bohemian nightlife) to Bath's World Heritage Site and tourist mecca - its Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, the famous Royal Crescent and the incredible selection of Georgian architecture, Somerset is a country that really does seem to have been given it all.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
No wonder the younger generation are getting more and more frustrated with money - new research has revealed that even with a 10% deposit, 25-34 year olds are struggling to afford even the CHEAPEST houses on the market. Is there a solution to the 'impossible challenge'?
