The Experience

Deep copper baths, fibre optic chandeliers, a chic up-cycled bar for cocktails, and secret walks from your doorstep – that’s what you find at this gorgeous country-house hotel. It’s all the result of a remarkable renovation that blends old and new to great effect, and wherever you go something beautiful catches the eye: a curved mahogany door, polished wood floors, classical and contemporary art. Views from the front door stretch out over rolling hills. At the back, a kitchen garden climbs up to fields, beyond which woodland walks wait. Back inside, you find high ceilings, vast windows, period colours and hungry wood-burners. Lamps hang in the restaurant, where you dig into local or home-grown food, perhaps game terrine, chicken supreme, sticky toffee pudding. Fabulous rooms wait above. Four at the back are smaller and come with garden views. Those at the front are bigger, with king-size beds, copper baths, perhaps a walk-in shower; all have robes and smart TVs.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Backwell House

  • We are well located within close proximity to Bristol, a short 8 minute drive to the city centre. We are also conveniently located just 3 miles from Bristol Airport but far enough away from the flight path.
  • We are surrounded by beautiful walks, whether it be an enchanted secret woodland walk, a stroll across the fields to a country pub or down the cycle path which takes you all the way in to Bristol.
  • Backwell House is located on the same side of the city as the infamous Clifton Suspension Bridge which is situated approximately 5 miles away. You could also visit Clifton Observatory, Clifton Village or Ashton Court Estate.
  • We are perfectly located near some National Trust areas, such as Tyntesfield and Clevedon Court.
  • Why not explore the rest of North Somerset whilst you're here? Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, The Mendips and Wookey Hole Caves.
  • Clevedon Seafront & Marine Lake and the Victorian Pier are just a 20 minute drive away.
