As Valentine’s Day fast approaches and Spring is just around the corner, there are a host of activities to enjoy in Somerset this February. Firstly, why not make the most of The Lighthouse’s special Thursday prices for a quick romantic break in the Somerset countryside to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Enjoy a little luxury in one of our Superior Double bedrooms situated in our 17th Century Farm House with views over the Parkland and surrounding countryside.
If you are looking for some good family entertainment for half term then the best place to start can be Longleat Safari Park, which opens its doors again on Saturday 16th February. One of Australia’s most iconic animals is due to join the Park on the 29th March in the form of two Koala Bears, who will take up residence in their very own Koala Creek. Discount tickets are now available from The Lighthouse when you make a reservation. Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and the Roman Baths in Bath also offer a great day out, combining a good dose of fresh air, ancient history and some stunning sights suitable for the whole family.
