Misty views of the landscape, frost covered buildings and twinkling Christmas lights, Somerset is abundant with picture-perfect winter scenes. We pick 19 of the county’s prettiest moments worthy of a Christmas card

From frosty scenes at Exmoor National Park

…complete with red-breasted robins…

… to a blanket of frost on Long Hill Carriage

…and misty winter scenes on the Quantock Hills…

…and the enchanting manicured gardens of Hestercombe at winter…

…there is something quite magical in Somerset when the colder months draw in.

When you didn’t think its iconic landmarks could get any prettier…

…but they’re definitely worthy of a picture while on a winter walk

…and a visit over Christmas.

We might have snow again in Weston Woods…

...and walking along Somerset’s pretty beaches you’re likely to get very, very cold!

Porlock Wier is worth wrapping up warm for as the waves lap your feet…

…and you can appreciate the county’s mesmerising vistas.

…A view from a cosy pub, drink in hand, can’t be beaten…

…especially after all that Christmas shopping…

...and time admiring the county’s picture-perfect streets.

Somerset’s Christmas markets are some of the most charming…

…and Burnham-on-Sea’s decorations are second-to-none…

…and front doors are getting the festive treatment too!
