Short Stays

carnivals somerset short breaks

The Somerset Carnivals are highly regarded as the largest illuminated procession in the World. They occur each November in the following towns: Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Glastonbury, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Wells and Weston-Super-Mare. There are also smaller Carnivals which can be found through the links below.

The Carnival carts are designed and built by dedicated carnival clubs around the West Country. These clubs have many members who raise money throughout the year. The illuminated carts can be up to 100ft in length, 16ft high and 11ft wide and some have up to 30,000 light bulbs!

Dragonfly Barn is just over a mile away from North Petherton and when the Carnival ‘comes to town’ the sky is alight with colour! A leisurely 20 minute walk takes you right to the heart of the action and you can leave your car safely behind at the Barn.
