  • "We all loved the Lodge."

    It was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and set in a peaceful countryside location. The hot tub was most welcome after long days visiting local attractions and shopping at Clarks Village. We were 4 adults and a 12 month old little one and found the accommodation to be perfect.

  • "We had such a lovey time at your property, so thank you very much."

    The views were incredible, we got very lucky with the lovey weather to appreciate the surroundings! The hot tub was loved by all. The temperature was a little cooler on the second day and were unable to get it any hotter than 33 degrees but it may have been something we hadn’t done correctly? We hope you got our message re the recycling. All I all, it was perfect for us, we just wish we could’ve stayed longer. Thank you very much :)

    The owners communicated with us before and during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed given our visit coincided with Storm Eunice and Storm Franklin.

  • "Jack and I had the best time."

    We have been in the past and we were not disappointed as it was just as amazing as the first time we visited. We made use of the hot tub every night and loved the visits we got from Billy, he is such a friendly and playful dog. We couldn’t thank Neil and Jo for their help any more, as our car broke down whilst we were down there (we’re from Preston) and we were pretty much stranded down there. They were kind enough to let us leave our car there for a scrap man to collect it, and didn’t stop there as Jo was happy to drive us to the nearest train station, which was a squeeze with all of our luggage in her mini, we made it work. We look forward to seeing the two new additions to your site when they are completed as they look amazing already. We will be back and hopefully you’ll remember us as the two who’s car broke down aha.

    Very peaceful location. We relaxed in the secluded hot tub every day. Very friendly owners and Billy (their lovely dog) visited us every day. Would thoroughly recommend this lodge and we hope to return sometime.

  • "We had an amazing stay at Swan Lodge."

    The cabin had everything we could have possibly needed and make our stay so nice. The added bonus of Billy coming to see us everyday was something to look forward to also. We used the hot tub every night and watched the fireworks going off in surrounding villages. We also ventured into Glastonbury and Wells. I would recommend both places to visit as they both had completely different characteristics. Our overall stay was loved by all of us and we would happily return. Thank you also to the owners who were lovely and made sure our stay was everything we needed.

    Jo and Neil are very pleasant people and Billy, the dog, is so friendly. Wedmore is a pretty village and the people are welcoming. Travelling across the Somerset Levels to places like Wells, Street and Glastonbury makes you realise just how green and pleasant England is. A very restful week in a wonderfully quiet area where there is still plenty to do.

    We enjoyed sitting back and taking in the spectacular view over to Glastonbury Tor and surrounding area. The cottage was very clean and comfortable - a real home from home!

    The views were an unexpected bonus, so beautiful to sit in the hot tub and watch the long shadows over the fields. The kids loved playing with Billy the playful dog every day too! Lovely and bright, but in the hot weather it’s very hot inside with no air conditioning. That would be my only upgrade suggestion!

  • "I went with a few of my mates to this cottage."

    It was a perfect base for us to relax and unwind. Beautiful views to wake up to in the morning. Stunning starry scenes at night in the hot tub. What more could you ask for.....we loved our visit from Billy the dog! We made full use of meeting all the animals on the far. Added bonus was being able to sit in the cockpit of a Sea Hawk Harrier!! The only thing that I would say is study the route the sat Nav tries to take you down. My sat Nav took me through a field to get to the house. It was a horrid drive through the field for my car... did not sound healthy. We got stuck in the mud a few times! That road is better suited if you have a 4x4 for sure. But there is a main road that will take you to the property....my sat Nav was just adamant to destroy my car. But this is no fault of the property!! It’s google maps fault! All in all, a lovely couple of days at this cottage and I would stay again.

    The view over the Somerset Levels is spectacular and at sunrise can be almost mystical. There is plenty to see and do in the area and you don’t have to drive far. The hot tub is a welcome luxury after a long day sightseeing. The lovely village of Wedmore is not far away and has lots of amenities including two very nice pubs for eating.

  • "We had such an amazing week away!"

    ! I spent a few weeks going through the internet to find somewhere fitting for a 40th gift to my husband, we are surrounded by nature, but wanted somewhere peaceful, homely, comfortable and clean, and with animals. We got more than we could have wanted. The owners greeted us on arrival, such a special touch, and their dog was an added bonus, we all feel in love with him... He is very playful and definitely keeps the children entertained. It’s a very clean lodge, beautiful surroundings, lovely for families, and children will LOVE it, even our teenager did, she/ and also we loved the hot tube. Be prepared for an amazing week, the Cheddar Gorge was a 30 min drive, local beaches, and lots to do as a family. We enjoyed the walk at Brean.. The property is a 20 min or less drive from the local supermarkets... Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed...

  • "Swan Lodge was beautifully located with incredible views, far enough away from the farmhouse to be peaceful and cleverly fenced so as to ensure privacy from the lodge next door."

    The hot-tub was fantastic and definitely a highlight of the holiday, and the children were heart-broken to leave Billy, the super-friendly farmhouse dog, behind. Neil and Jo were delightful hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming. The lodge was bright, airy and impeccably clean but our 13 year old found the bunk bed too narrow to sleep in uncomfortably. The upstairs bedroom has low ceilings to either side of the bed and even my relatively short parents hit their heads several times when getting in and out of bed in the night. We also found a lack of pots and pans in the kitchen. If there had been a visitors book I would have written this feedback in it as I really didn't want to put it on here and these things shouldn't deter anyone from staying there as it really was a gorgeous place.

The property

This sumptuous lodge which is one of two identical lodges 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, and 8 miles from Glastonbury.

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.

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.

This lodge is perfect for couples and families at any time of year and the owners also have their very own Sea Harrier jump jet for you to sit in.

Guests are also spoiled with the site of their neighbours in the next field; Jeffrey, Percy and Albert the alpacas and Dottie and Minnie the miniature horses.
