The property

This luxurious lodge which is one of two identical properties rests amidst open countryside, looking idyllically over the Somerset levels with spectacular views of Glastonbury Tor.

The village is a mile outside the picturesque and historical village of Wedmore.

The property boasts an open-plan living area including fully fitted kitchen, with light flooding in from bi-folding doors that bring the outdoors in.

There are three bedrooms; one upstairs king-size room with an en-suite, the other downstairs king-size and children's bunk bedroom share a fully fitted wet room.

Outside there is a sheltered patio area with its own hot tub and outdoor furniture.

On the other side of the garden fence are Percy, Albert and Jeffrey the alpacas, and Minnie and Dottie the miniature horses.

Set within a rural location, with amazing views of the surrounding countryside, guests may want to relax in the hot tub or make the most of fantastic walks or cycle rides in the immediate area.

The superb property is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions that Somerset has to offer, for nature lovers the Somerset levels, Mendip Hills and Polden Hills and for families the coastal beaches of Weston Super Mare, Burnham on Sea, nearby Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole.

It is a great location for family days out to Puxton Adventure Park, Longleat Safari Park, Brean Leisure Park and Brean Water Park.

The nature reserves at Westhay and Shapwick Heath are a must for birdwatchers while Wells Cathedral and Glastonbury Abbey provide the cultural heritage of the area.

Street is nearby for those looking for a designer bargain at Clarks Village and a visit to Somerset wouldn't be complete without a visit to Thatchers Cider with its restaurant and shop,or the more rustic experience of Wilkins Cider Farm just down the road.

Taunton, Bath and Bristol are all under an hour so provide perfect choice for day trips.

The owners even have their very own attraction, a Sea Harrier jump jet for you to sit in.

In such a great location, this lodge is perfect for couples and families all year round.

Note: Property can be booked with Swan Lodge Ref 983734, sleeping 12 people together.

    The area is quiet. If you need to unwind in rural seclusion look no further ignore the price and just book you will not be disappointed. The location of this lodge and its facilities are amazing ...

    The area is quiet. If you need to unwind in rural seclusion look no further ignore the price and just book you will not be disappointed. The location of this lodge and its facilities are amazing This lodge has a WOW factor as soon as you approach it. There are stunning views of Glastonbury Tor across the Somerset Levels . There is a breathtaking panoramic view from the spacious open plan living area. The hot tub also shares the great views and is secluded and sheltered. There are 2 bathrooms with great showers. There is a massive TV which we never turned on due to the amazing views. The lodge is very light inside due to the large floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides overlooking the Levels. The Lodge is not overlooked with nothing to spoil the views. There are lovely walks direct from your door across the Levels . There is much wildlife, swans, herons swallows and deer. 3 Alpacas, Billie the dog and a black cat visit the garden daily and are all friendly. There is a good WIFI signal but being rural the phone signal is present but a bit weak . There is ample parking. We only went out a couple of days as when you get here you will know why. There is very small campsite as you approach out of view of the Villa as you arrive. The hot tub was large and relaxing and needs to be off and reduced noise outside by 10 pm as not to disturb the one nearby lodge .The upstairs en-suite bedroom has a large bed with a comfortable mattress . The downstairs double bedroom is lovely but the soft mattress made the bed unsuitable for sleeping on so we used upstairs instead. I would suggest the same mattress as upstairs is purchased to rectify this as it would be cooler sleeping downstairs in summer. The sofas and art décor chair look great but are too soft and low for anyone with lower back problems. There is a hard tall chair suitable for reading and sitting though. The kitchen is very well equipped so we used it every day for evening meals. The main oven is slow so leave food in for longer. There are no tea cups or small mugs only numerous large ones. There were beach towels and bathroom towels provided which were on the small side . There is plenty soap washing liquid a dishwasher washing machine meaning you only need to bring your own shampoo and a large towel if you want one. We came as a couple and will definitely be returning in future. We cant wait to see on the nearby owners farm which has a harrier jumpjet which is wheeled out of its shed on a Sunday Overall we had an amazing stay and cant recommend the lodge highly enough. Don't forget a few more bottles of bubbly , just relax and take in the very special views
