Charming Jenny and her energetic Jack Russell Titch welcome you to their comfortable home with tea and homemade cake. You’ll be looked after well in this big Victorian house with its huge open fire, antiques in every room, ancestral oil paintings and contemporary art.Inviting bedrooms overlook the gardens; breakfast is at one convivial table and the food is locally sourced and organic as much as possible. If it’s sunny you can find your own spot to sit among mature trees, plants and shrubs with views to Blagdon Lake – tawny owls, woodpeckers and birds of prey can often be seen.Bristol and Bath are close, you can walk from the house into the hills or down to the lake. Foodies will love having Michelin-listed restaurants so close. Treat yourself at The Ethicurean in Wrington or The Seymour Arms in Blagdon or the Pony & Trap near Chew Magna.
