South Somerset District Council's tourism website. Everything for the perfect holiday in England!

Countryside

South Somerset is the real deal, working, living countryside. Farming runs through our veins and our connection to the landscape is a strong one. 

Our diverse landscape includes wooded hills and valleys and the Somerset Levels and Moors - one of the lowest and flattest places in the UK and an important habitat.

We have incredible wildlife too, offering world-class birdwatching at RSPB sites, nature trails and woodlands.  And with award winning green flag sites, including Ham Hill Country Park, Yeovil Country Park and Chard Reservoir Nature Reserve, you won't be disappointed.
