Self-catering holidays

Whether you're looking for somewhere to bring your family together for a special occasion, have an upmarket hen weekend or just get away from it all for a quiet break, we have a number of rural properties where you can relax and chill out. We offer weekend self-catering accommodation for wedding guests at Coombe Lodge or Lakewood Centre as well. If you can tear yourself away from the stunning views, make it a weekend to remember with anything from a relaxing session at Bath's Thermae Spa, to a Wild Food Walk on the Mendips!

We are happy to offer a limited number of exclusive weekends for groups of 6-26 at a number of lovely properties in the area.

Properties are in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the heritage cities of Wells with the beautiful Cathedral & Bishop's Palace and Bath with the world famous Roman Baths. The attractions of Glastonbury Tor and the Wye Valley & Tintern Abbey in South Wales are just a little further, and many of the delights of Devon are also an easy day trip from here. At just 10 minutes from Bristol International Airport, 25 minutes from Bristol, 35 minutes from Bath it is very easy to reach and makes an ideal location to explore all that the West Country has to offer.





  • Less than 2 hours from London with great transport links, just 10 minutes from Bristol International Airport, 30 mins Bath, 25 mins Bristol
  • Close to Bath, Bristol & Wells for plenty of culture, lots of activities, shopping, gourmet food and nightlife
  • Fantastic locations with rural views

Our properties are all within easy reach of Blagdon village, one of the loveliest villages on the Mendip Hills and situated at the edge of the Chew Valley. There are wonderful walks right from the doorstep, and you could spend a week exploring the immediate vicinity with Blagdon and Chew Valley lakes, an Iron Age hill fort, Burrington Combe, Cheddar & Wookey caves, all virtually on the doorstep. See photos below of Blagdon lake & church, and Chew Valley lake.


A short drive will take you to Wells, the smallest City in England with a fabulous cathedral, Glastonbury Tor and Abbey, the heritage City of Bath and the lovely Wye Valley. There's plenty to keep you occupied here but the immediate area is unspoilt, free from crowds and rich with wildlife and outstanding countryside. If you get tired of visiting outstanding attractions such as Wells Cathedral (below) you can always just chill out and watch the sunset...
