  • "We really enjoyed are stay at Starling Lodge."

    The Lodge is fairly spacious and in a nice location. The views from the Lodge are amazing. The owners both Jo and Neil are really nice and are on hand should you have any questions. The only thing we found that was very slightly negative to us was that the large sofa is on the low side and a bit difficult to get up out of. Saying that it didn't in any way ruin our stay, in fact we are planning to go back next year. Thank you Jo and Neil. We would definitely recommend this Lodge.

  • "The property was as described and more, clean, comfortable and everything we needed."

    The beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept on when on holiday and the pillows like clouds, thank goodness for soft towels that were not white (we hate hard white towels). The scenery was amazing, visits from Billy and Alpacas roaming freely was so lovely. A visit to the Harrier was also appreciated and being able to sit inside too! Perfectly located for trips to Wells, Bath and Glastonbury - if you can leave the tranquility. Oh and we also saw satellites and shooting stars due to there being very little light and perfectly clear skies when we were there - all from the hot tub! Don’t miss out on a piece of heaven!

  • "Starling cottage was a delightful surprise!"

    One of four cottages tucked away around a corner at the top of a hill, the cottage is spacious and beautiful with the most gloriously expansive views. The cottage itself had everything we needed and it was all in lovely condition, clean and perfect. The cottage is beautifully decorated and we felt like we were in the pages of a travel magazine! Our children enjoyed the hot tub, played ball on the grass, made friends with the dogs, ponies and alpacas. In short, we all had a fantastic stay. Jo and Neil are lovely, friendly and helpful. Neil was so kind to show us their Harrier seaplane. That was a jaw-dropping experience! We would highly recommend Starling Cottage and would definitely stay there again!

  • "We stayed in starling lodge 14th-17th October."

    It was exactly how it was described and looked exactly how the listing was. We were so amazed at how big the lodge is and how much space there was. The amazing views from the lodge are amazing and it's lovely to be able to enjoy the scenery and peacefulness. We managed to stay busy every day. It was lovely to be able to relax in the hot tub on the night time and watch the sunset and stars when it had gone dark. Will definitely be returning again and will highly recommend. Jo is amazing and very helpful and friendly. Was lovely to meet the animals that are on the farm.

  • "The chalet was fabulous, really well appointed and spacious, wonderful location - so tranquil, with lovely views over uninterrupted countryside towards Stonehenge."

    Hot tub was clean and powerful - and well used by us over the weekend! Very well positioned for sightseeing, Went to Cheddar Gorge and Stonehenge....but also found a huge reclamation yard one day, which I could have spent a fortune at, and a Sunday morning car boot, which was good too. Jo, the host was on hand if needed, and very kindly posted back a toy that my 10 month old granddaughter hid under the armchair...I would have no hesitation in recommending this place and would go again. Instructions for the hob / oven would have been useful, as I am not used to ceramic hobs/electric, even with Google it was hit and miss, as I couldn't find the exact model, but none of us starved! All in all a memorable and relaxing family weekend.

  • "The property is really good, as it has a wet room and downstairs bedroom it is ideal for those with limited mobility."

    The views across to Glastonbury are beautiful, and thanks to enormous windows these can be enjoyed from inside as well as out. The hot tub was very welcome after a day exploring the area. It was lovely seeing the animals, alpacas, Shetland pony and sheep and highlight was the harrier plane which is available to be looked at on Sunday morning. A great accommodation and we will definitely be going back.

  • "A super stay at a beautiful, spotlessly clean lodge."

    The large picture windows in the lodge provide stunning panoramic views and the views can be enjoyed from the hot tub too. Quiet and peaceful location but within easy reach of Cheddar, Glastonbury Tor, Wells and the coast. Our boys enjoyed seeing and sitting in the Harrier - an added bonus of staying here!

  • "Absolutely stunning, the lodge and views from it."

    The private hot tub was perfect, especially before and after a day spent walking Cheddar Gorge and Jacob's Ladder. We hope to return again soon and won't need to pack additional towels for the hot tub as these were thoughtfully provided, a hairdryer could be useful for some guests. None of us wanted to leave, it was so comfortable and relaxing we would all highly recommend it to family and friends.

  • "Starling cottage is stunning, great size, great facilities, the hot tub was amazing and the views are breathtaking."

    There are ponies and alpaca’s literally at the end of your garden. Ideally placed with surrounding villages a 10-15 minute drive away but secluded enough to feel away from it all in rural bliss. I cannot recommend this place enough. More than enough space for a family holiday, but cozy and quiet enough for a romantic weekend away. Will definitely be returning in the future and have already recommend to friends and family. Thank you for providing a beautiful place to spend an amazing long weekend.

  • "Thé lodge was delightful and very comfortable."

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could want for a lovely holiday. The views across the countryside to Glastonbury Tor are lovely. The photographs don’t do them justice. We all enjoyed the hot tub including our small grandson Alfie. The Sea Harrier was an added bonus both grandson and grandad thoroughly enjoyed climbing into the cockpit and finding out about the history. Thank you Neil and Jo for a lovely stay .

    The property was immaculate, clean and very well equipped with anything we needed. The owners called in to welcome us and are really friendly and accommodating, letting us know that if needed anything we just had to ask - great hosts. The hot tub was great - especially overlooking the landscape views, so relaxing! We will definitely return in the near future.

The property

This luxury lodge, which is one of four identical houses, is nestled in open countryside, with idyllic views of the Somerset hills and Glastonbury Tor.

Starling Lodge, located a mile outside of Wedmore village, is a peaceful retreat for families and couples wishing to enjoy Somerset's natural beauty.

The open-plan living space, which includes a fully equipped kitchen and bi-folding doors that bring the outdoors in, is sure to be social hub of the home.

Pop open a bottle of fizz and serve a home-cooked dish at the dining table or take the evening outdoors to the patio furniture, where you may enjoy alfresco dining amidst the glorious Somerset levels.

After a long day, relax on the plush sofa and catch up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV, or relax in the hot tub whilst you ponder where to visit next.

This rural retreat has three wonderful bedrooms: an upstairs king-size room with an en-suite, and a downstairs king-size and children's bunk bedroom that share a fully equipped wet room.

Visit Percy, Albert, and Jeffrey the alpacas, as well as Minnie and Dottie the miniature ponies, on the other side of the garden fence.

You'll enjoy excellent walks or cycle rides in the immediate vicinity, which are set in a rural setting with amazing views of the surrounding countryside.

Take a beautiful journey up to the spectacular Cheddar Gorge, where cathedral-like caves house 9000 years of human history, or ramble through the Somerset lowlands, Mendip Hills, and Polden Hills.

Puxton Adventure Park, Longleat Safari Park, Brean Leisure Park, and Brean Water Park are all recommended for family days out, or while you're there, try your hand at Cheddar Crazy Golf and visit The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company for a cheese keepsake from the birthplace of Cheddar!

Birdwatchers should visit Westhay and Shapwick Heath nature areas, while cultural heritage can be found at Wells Cathedral and Glastonbury Abbey.

Clarks Village is close by for anyone searching for a designer bargain, and a trip to Somerset wouldn't be complete without a stop at Thatchers Cider, which has a restaurant and shop, or Wilkins Cider Farm, which is more rural.

Taunton, Bath, and Bristol are all within an hour's drive of each other, making them ideal for day visits.

However you choose to spend your time, Starling Lodge is a wonderful retreat, whatever time of year.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1100431, sleeping 12 people together.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
