  • "Having stayed in many cottages over the past 2 years we can say that Milestones was probably in the best condition."

    Standard of cleanliness and decoration were excellent. Good assortment of kitchenware, although for a property sleeping 8 a larger cafeteria would have been useful. A clothes airer would be helpful to save using the tumble dryer. We found the proximity of the road was not an issue and the views over the Somerset levels outstanding.

  • "Milestone 'Cottage' was much more than expected."

    Upstairs are four double bedrooms, one with en-suite and further large bathroom. Downstairs is a huge lounge, separate dining room, separate kitchen with a 1970's style hatch through to the dining room. It has a mature terraced garden at the rear and large front garden A really lovely property, very clean and beautifully decorated and with WiFi. Really good for a base to explore the surrounding area. We really enjoyed our stay with the family. A couple of minor improvements to consider. 1. Need a towel rail/ring near the sink in the en-suite? 2. Possibly add a handrail in the shower to help those of a certain age with balance. 3. Add a mirror in the main bedroom for styling hair after washing as hair dryer cannot be used in en-suite. 4. Teenager would have liked access to Netflix etc! He suggests a Firestick. 5. Tin opener was not working effectively. Look to replace?

  • "This is a wonderful cottage-warm, comfortable, roomy, immaculately clean and very well equipped."

    We have had a very enjoyable Christmas In Milestones, and were very touched by the welcome we received, not in person but through the lovely decorations, the attention to little details such as crackers on the dining table and the wonderful array of local produce for us to enjoy. We were also extremely touched by the beautifully wrapped gift from the owners to ourselves and our guests. We really could not have asked for a better place to spend Christmas. Praise must also go to the property management service which looks after the property-they do a wonderful job-the whole house was sparkling. A huge thank you to all.

  • "We had a great week at milestone."

    It was a lovely house,and top marks for the cleaners ,it was spotless. The information booklets were very helpful. The beds are super comfy, also super towels. The only negatives are it's on a main road and the drive is steep. But we knew this before we went, would we stay again , a big YES.

  • "We had a great holiday."

    would the owners be able to provide salt at the house (it was great that tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, cheese, cider, dishwasher tablets, washing tablets were provided though) Also I wonder if a clothes airer could be provided as we did a couple of washes but had to use the drier( I would have prefered not to for envirnoment and fuel cost to owner) but there was no where to put wet washing. Overall the house was very well equiped, the kitchen had everything we needed, the house was clean and tidy and comfortable. It was lovely to be able to sit in the garden too. Beds were comfy.

    It is in a good position for travelling to various tourist/beauty spots. The one negative point is the main road which you have to negotiate in and out of the property.

  • "Milestones was a perfect place to come and get away from it all."

    The property was so clean and tidy. There was so much space and having the downstairs toilet and walk in shower in the en-suite was a god send for my mum who has mobility issues. The beds were super comfortable and there was so much storage for clothes. The kitchen was well equipped. We loved the fact there were many plates and bowls so the dishwasher could be filled before running out. Having a washing machine with a built in dryer was great. If you are used to having Sky etc the TV could be a disappointment but it did for us. The local pub was fantastic and the food delish! I highly recommend Milestones. Leaving us milk, butter, jam and chutney was a lovely touch too!

    I read a review that said the pans were too small, so we packed pans and there was absolutely no need- maybe you can try and take it off? Thank you for the lovely personal touches and decorating for christmas, you really made our stay great.

The property

A perfect opportunity for the extended family to spend quality time together away from hustle and bustle of every day life.

Milestones is a beautiful, spacious, light and airy home with it’s own unique character.

Occupying a private and discrete location at the foot of the Mendip hills in the small country village of Westbury sub Mendip, Somerset.

Boasting a glorious view across the Somerset levels and views of Glastonbury Tor, this grand property is ideal for drivable visits to local beaches, with magnificent views along the way, with the nearest beaches being Weston Super Mare and Brean Sands.

There are four bedrooms within the property equipped to sleep eight people - the master bedroom has an en-suite.

The spacious living room has large windows offering a stunning panoramic view of the hills and surrounding countryside.

It is easily large enough to incorporate the space needed for the larger family, providing a spacious place to play games together at the end of each day.

The surrounding areas provide a chance to explore caves and visit places of famous historical interest.

Milestones is the perfect ‘wind down’ retreat to return to after a busy day of exploring.

Offering an equipped and large kitchen area to prepare the ‘feet up’ family meal, to be enjoyed in the spacious dining room, that overlooks the private, established rear garden.

There is also a Study room equipped with a desk and work area, for private space, or for those who may need to sneak in a little secret holiday work time.

It is perfect for all ages as a base to explore this wonderful county; however being situated on the slopes of the Mendip hills it is on a moderate incline with a tiered mature garden and as such there are steps and the rear garden has three levels.

There is also a cot provided for a little one.

The garden is beautifully steeped, curved and sectioned to afford the chance of a private moment for reading and relaxation, whilst soaking up the beautiful Somerset atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

The local area has everything you need for a short or long stay.

A quaint, community run post office offers fresh produce, wines and general goods.

There is a local village pub which serves food with perfect hospitality.

Look out for entertainment that is also provided there on occasions.

On the doorstep there are many walking opportunities, immerse yourself deep into the heart of the countryside and marvel over spectacular views.

Wookey hole is a short distance away, offering entertainment for children and the opportunity to travel deep into excavated caves and discover the habitat of pre-historic man!

The historic landmark, Cheddar Gorge, is just a couple of villages away, sample cave aged Cheddar cheese that is made locally or just marvel at the beauty of the enormous chiseled rock faces.

Some climbing opportunity is available locally too and plenty of walks over a wide range of routes to suit all abilities from hike to easy stroll, plenty for all to have a glorious day out.

Visit the famous, mystical Glastonbury Tor, which can be seen from Milestones, busy with foot climbers at all times of the day it offers the very best views across the whole region.

Whilst in Glastonbury you could also take a tour of the ruins of the famous Abbey, another site linked to the legendary King Arthur.

A short distance from Glastonbury is the town of Street and the opportunity to browse the wide range of shops at Clarkes Village where you can pick up a bargain.

The Somerset levels are a habitat for a wide range of wildlife, particularly rare birds and a more common species, the Starling can be seen performing at certain times of the year their breath-taking murmuration creating fabulous patterns and shapes as they flock together above the marshes.

Slightly further afield are Bristol and Bath, Milestones affords a comfortable day out to these locations.

Bath offers the opportunity to see genuine Roman Spa’s and a chance to learn about Roman early settlers or to just gaze at the beautiful, affluent architecture that fills this Royal City.

Bristol offers a variety of restaurants, historic docks and a not to be missed opportunity to see the SS Great Britain and Brunel’s famous suspension bridge.

About the location

WESTBURY-SUB-MENDIP

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

The Somerset village of Westbury-sub-Mendip, boasts a pub and local shops. It nestles beneath the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills half way between Cheddar Gorge and the attractive cathedral city of Wells, both around four miles away. 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. With the picturesque Somerset levels, as well as mystic Glastonbury also an easy drive away, this attractive area makes a convenient and ideal touring base.
