North Somerset promises countryside, culture and coast

North Somerset wants you to know that it has plenty to offer visitors this summer, and has teamed up with VisitEngland to get that message out there.

As part of the national tourism body's three-year investment project, assistance will be given to North Somerset Council in its Rural Escapes campaign, which aims to encourage visitors who are not only looking for a holiday at the seaside, but a break containing culture and tradition as well.

VisitEngland chief executive James Berresford said: "The campaign aims to inspire UK residents to explore our green and pleasant land, and take a short break in one of England's most beautiful rural destinations."

Mendip Outdoor Pursuits director David Eddins added that North Somerset is a "stunning" part of the country, but due to other areas in the South West having a higher profile, it sometimes gets overlooked.

As well as beautiful stretches of natural coastline, North Somerset boasts one of the country's most attractive and historic cities, Bath, along with the rolling limestone peaks of the Mendip Hills, which are perfect for outdoor activities - the Mendips are even recognised as a national centre for caving and cave diving.

If you want to see what North Somerset has to offer, why not book a stay at one of YHA's excellent local hostels?
