1. Cosy up in your accommodation

We’re all about unplugging from the daily grind, so take a rainy day as an opportunity to spend time together without the distractions of TV, iPads or the internet. Light the fire in your accommodation, plunder our supply of traditional board games and puzzles, and sit down for a bit of family fun. If it’s a gently rainy day, you can enjoy a moment of Zen sitting out the veranda watching the raindrops.

2. Have fun in our barn

If you want to spend time with other people or simply give the kids some space to let off steam, our barn is the place to go. You can play board games, pool or table football, and we have several big blackboards set up to play Hangman, Noughts and Crosses or Squares. We’ve got sofas and a kettle in the barn, so it’s a comfy and homely space – it’s also the place to enjoy your pizza on rainy Pizza Nights.

4. Visit Wookey Hole

Wookey Hole has enough undercover attractions to keep the family entertained for the best part of a day. They include a massive indoor soft play area, a penny arcade, a circus, a beautiful old carousel, and much more – including the spectacular caves, of course. It’s a 4-to-10-year old’s dream.

5. Head to the local soft play

Talking of soft play, Ocean Adventures in Cheddar is an award-winning soft play attraction with a café refuge for weary parents. There’s another soft play centre at Farrington’s in Farrington Gurney. They have an outdoor play area as well, plus a café, a fish and chip shop and an autumn pumpkin festival where you can pick your own pumpkins! All of these are some perfect rainy day activities to enjoy during your stay.

6. Visit an air museum

The Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton is a large and fascinating attraction featuring over 90 aircraft, along with thousands of artefacts. It’s also home to the first British Concorde. If that gives you a taste for aircraft, you can also head to Aerospace Bristol at Cribbs Causeway, whose exhibits include the last Concorde ever built, WWII aircraft, and an amazing Red Arrows simulator.

Experience the thrills and adventures of the Royal Navy at the National Museum of the Royal Navy. A great activity to enjoy during a rainy day.

7. Learn about rural life

The Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury is a great place to learn about the history of farming in the area, with exhibits including a peat boat – once a common site on the Somerset Levels, a cider press, farm clothing and implements, and more. Also worth visiting to get a sense of farming in a bygone era is Oakham Treasures near Portishead. As well as a tractor and farming museum, it includes fascinating exhibits relating to retail history, including a vintage haberdashery and a vintage sweet shop.

8. Take in some ecclesiastical wonders

The tiny city of Wells is home to a magnificent cathedral – the first in England to be built entirely in the Gothic style – and the adjacent Bishop’s Palace. Don’t miss the cathedral’s 14th Century Jesse Window – a remarkable feat of stained glass – or the wondrous cathedral clock, the second oldest surviving clock mechanism in Britain. Bath Abbey is another stunning ecclesiastical building. It’s home to more memorials than any other church in England – 1500 in total. You can learn more about them here.

9. Visit Bath’s famous baths

Bath’s Roman Baths are a stunning attraction: a Roman bath complex dating from 60AD where you can view the beautifully preserved baths, learn about their history, and take tea in the Regency Pump Room, which is also the place to sample the famous, and rather funny tasting, waters. You won’t get wet on a visit to Bath’s Roman Baths – unless you opt to visit the nearby Thermae Bath Spa, a modern spa fed with the same waters that fill the beautiful Roman baths. Here you can unwind in a rooftop setting with views of the city.
