    “The two resident geese can be a bit scary when they come up close to you, might upset children if they wish to play outside, and you have to watch where you are walking due to their droppings.”

    The lodge is clean, comfortable and warm with all the mod cons expected in a self catering place and they all worked well.

    The lodge is clean, comfortable and warm with all the mod cons expected in a self catering place and they all worked well. The safe we found in one of the wardrobes, we were unable to use, as it was locked and is the only item that there are no instructions for in the folder provided. It is on a flight path, so we were often woken up around 6 am with the noise from the planes and the geese honking. Some of the items of crockery were chipped, but as there were only two of us staying, we just used the ones that were OK. Larger bath towels would have been appreciated, but we always gripe about this, even some of the best hotels do not provide decent sized towels. Net curtains, or blinds at the bedroom windows would make an improvement. The lodges are quite close, so we kept the curtains closed in the bedroom to give us privacy from the neighbours, making the room dark. This sound like a lot of complaints, but we were happy with the accommodation and enjoyed our time there. Weather was good and we were able to sit out on the veranda most afternoons enjoying the sunshine while drinking our tea.

New Orchard Farm Lodges

These luxurious lodges are part of a small group of just 4 properties, situated overlooking a large coarse fishing lake (stocked with bream, perch, roach, rudd, tench and carp) on the owners’ smallholding, within a quiet 65 acre site, on the edge of the Somerset village of Hewish. Just fifteen minutes’ drive from Weston-super-Mare, these superb lodges are an ideal base for exploring Somerset and the lovely beaches in this area. Set within an idyllic rural location, with amazing views of the lake and surrounding countryside, guests may want to relax and enjoy fishing, or simply admire the south-facing views towards the Mendip Hills. These wonderful lodges are almost identical inside, boasting an open plan living area and three bedrooms, including one with en-suite facilities, with the other two sharing a bathroom. Outside, the delightful lodges have a decked veranda, where you may wish to relax with a refreshing drink, or venture down to the edge of the lake and enjoy a spot of carp fishing. Those guests not taking advantage of the fishing may like to stroll along the country lanes leading from the farm, where homemade organic apple juice and preserves are also made, to visit Puxton Park Adventure Park, which has been awarded the Quality Rose Marque or Thatchers Cider farm which boasts a luxurious restaurant and cider shop. Just over six miles away is the traditional seaside town of Weston-super-Mare which has something for everyone. Miles of sandy beaches, the completely rebuilt Grand Pier and plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes, together with the Weston Wheel (March- September), Pirate Adventureland and crazy golf; who could ask for more from a truly memorable holiday? These quality lodges are perfect for families at any time of year.
