Crunchy leaves under foot, bracing walks in beautiful countryside and along the coast, cream teas in cosy tea rooms and charming pubs with roaring fireplaces — what's not to love about autumn in the Somerset?

Whether you're enjoying a stroll on the Mendips...

...or soaking in the view from along the South West Coast Path...

Wrapping up warm and rambling around Somerset this autumn...

...is the perfect way to blow away the cobwebs.

The beach isn't just for visiting during the summer...

...and dipping your toes into the sea in the colder months is sure to wake you up!

Autumnal hues begin to appear in the stunning stately gardens of Tyntesfield...

...and Montacute House...

...and Prior Park Landscape Garden is a sea of golden beauty from early October.

Feel the leaves crunch at your feet in Leigh Woods...

...or on your way to the Tarr Steps...

...and marvel at the beauty of the leaves changing colour at Bishops' Palace, Wells.

The autumnal weather is the perfect excuse to warm up in a cosy tea room...

...tuck into a tasty cream tea...

...or pay a visit to a charming pub and bag a seat in front of the fireplace!

We might be biased but we love spending our time in Somerset all year round...

However there's something rather special about autumn...

...and we hope you agree!
