  • "Glebe Lodge is situated in a good position for visiting Cheddar, Wells and the beautiful Mendips."

    The cottage itself is quite small, but cosy, clean and very well equipped. Our host, Jenny, was lovely, there to help and has lots of advice for places to go. Westbury-sub-Mendip is an interesting village with lots of winding lanes, and views across the valley. We had a great Sunday lunch at the Westbury Inn. We had a lovely week.

    The owner Jenny has ensured that the lodge has everything you need for a nice relaxing break. Very comfortable beds, all the facilities that you need including a washing machine, space to park and outside space to enjoy the weather. There is a village shop and pub and both Cheddar Gorge and Wells are only 4 miles away.

    The lighting in the bathroom is very poor, as is the water pressure leading to a very feeble shower (although there was sufficient pressure to flush the toilet - strange!).

    Water pressure is back to normal. Your feedback is welcomed and I am always striving for perfection in my Lodge. Property Owner

    The only negative is the television is not a smart tv.

    A big apology Nora, I highly value my returning guests, and this is your 4th stay with me. Unfortunately the smart tv in my property stopped working and as temporary measures I replaced it with one from my home unaware that it was not a smart tv. I will ensure I purchase a new smart tv for Glebe lodge to ensure my facilities meet the high standard my guests expect.

    Just as you see it online, and even better in actuality. The bed was comfortable. Jenny could not have been more kind and helpful, and has thought of everything you might possibly need in the cottage. I don’t drive in UK, but a bus service with stops right down the road runs between Cheddar and Wells, both great towns to visit. I recommend a car though, if you don’t have family in the area as I do. Thank you, Jenny for another fabulous stay, and for the wonderful Reiki treatment. I will see you next time! Sylvia

  • "Can't thank Jenny enough for making me feel so welcome - there is not a single thing that she hasn't thought of, in terms of what you might forget to pack, and what you'd appreciate to make you feel right at home (including a bottle of locally produced wine!"

    ). Always a bonus to be able to do laundry (even if you'd rather be enjoying the countryside). Just a cosy home from home, where you can enjoy glorious sunsets and see so many stars at night! A little about the village: you'll most likely be driving, but the (cash only) 126 bus service stops right at the bottom of the hill where the cottage is situated. It runs throughout the day, but stops around teatime and there are no Sunday buses, so please bear that in mind if you're needing buses. I was able to get a taxi from Wells for £14. You might appreciate that if you're arriving after dark, as it's country roads with no street lighting (or pavements for that matter). Having said that, it was perfectly fine going for walks, so long as you stick to the outside bend of the road. You can also get to Cheddar Gorge very easily on the bus, and it might be an idea to do so a) because it really is gorge-ous (sorry! Couldn't resist) and b) to show demand for a bus service facing cuts (a lot of folk seem to depend upon it). You can get off at the Tween Town stop, which is right at the base of the Gorge. There is also a trespass shop there if you need any equipment etc. Just keep an eye on the time for your return bus! I got the half 12ish bus there and half 4ish bus back and that was ample time. Westbury-sub-Mendip also has a small village shop (open limited hours at the weekend) including a post office (handy for cash withdrawals) and a restaurant/pub. And a hairdressers if you're so inclined. Everything you need really. Anything else you should be able to readily get in Wells.

  • "These are not complaints but observations."

    I think it would be nice to have a small sofa to sit on so people can sit together. Also we felt a little uncomfortable about opening the curtains in the morning when we were in our pj’s as the owners upstairs windows look straight into the cottages windows. Maybe some sort of blind or Net / voile curtains. The long curtains in the living area do not meet when closed therefore letting light in which disturbed our elderly dog at night. We had to peg them together.

    Thank you for your valued comment and I have now purchased a beautiful two seater sofa and angled it so as to make the sitting area more private from anyone outside . The curtains all meet together now which also add privacy for my more sensitive customers and their dogs. I always welcome suggestions to improve my holiday let and keep it to a high standard Property Owner

The property

A detached, single-storey holiday cottage peacefully situated within the charming Somerset village of Westbury-sub-Mendip on the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills, between Wells and Cheddar Gorge.

Comfortably furnished and well equipped, this cottage offers couples an attractive and convenient holiday base in a most picturesque part of Somerset.

The open plan living area provides light and airy accommodation with a twin bedroom.

Doors from the sitting room open out onto a small, enclosed private patio complete with garden furniture, while a short stroll takes you down to the village shop and pub with local footpaths stretching in all directions.

There's plenty to see within a short drive, including the stunning Cheddar Gorge as well as the caves and attractions at Wookey Hole.

Time your visit right in November to attend an evening event held by the local Somerset Carnival Clubs, which showcases a parade of carnival floats, and attracts 1000’s of people each year.

Alternatively, visit the charming medieval market city of Wells, named after the springs which still bubble up today in the grounds of the beautiful cathedral.

A little further afield you can spend the day touring the Somerset Levels, which offer an abundance of wildlife and pretty villages, or head to mystical Glastonbury, home to the annual Glastonbury Festival, approximately seven miles from Glebe Lodge, and a fantastic selection of shops, including crystal shops, Reiki treatments, the Chalice Well and a famous Tor boasting the legend of King Arthur.

A delightful cottage offering a convenient Somerset village holiday base at any time of the year.

About the location

WESTBURY-SUB-MENDIP

Wookey Hole 2 miles; Wells 4 miles; Cheddar 5 miles.

The surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a wealth of scenic footpaths and rugged landscapes, a superb centre for caving and rock climbing, with nearby Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves both offering great days out. Alternatively, Wells, England’s smallest city, with its 13th century cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and twice weekly market is well worth a visit.
