  • "Had a lovely week."

    Weather was relatively kind but didn't manage to sit outside, shame as lots of seating . Views too. Great location for many places of interest within driving distance. We were aware of the trains but didn't bother us! Would definitely return. The owner Michael was very pleasant.

  • "Lovely property."

    Clean, comfortable and spacious. The position if the property makes it really peaceful. It is next to a railway line but honestly the passing trains were no problem at all. The owner was very pleasant and welcoming. Would definitely stay there again.

  • "What a wonderful time we had at WestView, this well equipt and very comfortable holiday home was exceptional, having only one holiday home on site it was very peaceful, the one exception was the railway line but one became used to that very quickly."

    Its an idea base for getting out and about, we got to Wells,Cheddar Gorge, Bath, Ilchester and a few trips into Weston Super Mare, and we made the mistake of visiting Taunton and Bridgewater which used to be stunning but are now hovels for beggars. All in all I would recommend this site, Thank You

  • "We had a lovely stay at Westview."

    The lodge is very comfortable and we loved the position with good walks from the door. Everything we needed was provided and we enjoyed sitting out on the terrace. There are lots of lovely places to visit within easy driving distance as well as being able to walk to the beach.

  • "The accommodation itself was superb with comfortable stylish furnishings and fittings."

    The beds were comfortable and the kitchen utensils and crockery were more than sufficient. Unfortunately the noise and vibration from the adjacent railway line became so unbearable that we had to leave after 4 days. The building is less than 40m from the railway line and there were 60 diesel trains a day travelling at 100mph starting from 5.20am until 11.10pm. The note in the property summary saying that the Lodge is beside the trainline connecting Bridgewater and Bristol and associated noise may be heard is a gross understatement and is not an adequate notice as to the level of noise and vibration. We had hoped that we would have an enjoyable and relaxing break in pleasant surroundings; it was just the opposite!

  • "Overall it is a well equipped lodge but could do with a new Mrs Mop."

    The cooker top was full of grease (had to clean before use) and the cleaner hadn't bothered to clean the cobwebs under the dressing table or from the ceilings or under the furniture. Opened the door under the TV and it was full of dust didn't even touch it. Furniture is really uncomfortable to sit on. Cups in the cupboard were brown inside and had to bleach before using. The bed linen was clean as was the bathroom. The Trains didn't bother us at all. Word to the owner. You have a very nice lodge which fails on the cleanliness not up to the usual standard from Sykes Cottages. Wont be returning to this Lodge

    persons going on holiday should enjoy and relax and leave misery at home . do they not have spiders on mars! this is the same persons that left the lodge so dirty that it took three cleaners ( combined ) five hours to clean that always include the cooker . i am happy to have complaints that i can act and improve upon but i never act on trivial . i was pleased to see that they will not return .

    Fantastic central location for Weston-Super-Mare and the rest of Somerset. Owners left us too it, and popped in halfway through to make sure everything was ok.

  • "Excellent property with plenty of space and great facilities."

    WiFi coverage was excellent and also mobile phone coverage (which can be quite patchy in Somerset). Lots of space to store all our things - a dressing room in the main bedroom and large wardrobe in the second bedroom and a utility room for our golf clubs and outdoor gear. The kitchen was well appointed with a decent size fridge and freezer. Unfortunately we didn't have the best weather, but the views from the veranda were great and if the weather had been a bit better we would have spent our early evenings sitting outside watching the sun go down. The details do mention the trains, but these are fairly infrequent and apart from a long goods train that we only heard once, they are not very noisy and go past very quickly. Location is good - an easy walk down to the coast at Uphill and lots of places easily accessible.

    A lovely, friendly host, for whom nothing was too much trouble, and yes, a noisy mainline railway within yards, but that is easy to get used to , and actually, for us, became part of the charm. Another wonderful holiday - thank you!

  • "West View is light and spacious inside and out."

    It is not over-looked, having a rural aspect. The beach at Uphill, with wonderful sunsets over the Severn estuary is nearby. The rail line is very close and the noise from frequent trains would not suit everyone. We would be happy to return, probably out of the main season.

A fabulous place and a really friendly, funny, generous owner. We will definitely be going there again.

  • "The accommodation was perfect."

    The lodge is well maintained and beautiful inside. The only downside is its position, being so close to a mainline railway line. We were aware of it before we went and thought it would have little impact. We were wrong. The trains started at 0445 in the morning, some of them high speed and very noisy, and were still running after 2200 at night. The lodge is so close you can count the passengers. Although we loved the lodge, we would not return due to the impact the trains have on our peace and quiet. It is such a shame.

    Really easy to find, we made sure we planned and had a good look on Google maps before hand! very well maintained and cleaned. In a good location for travelling around the different sites! we walked to the pubs up the road which took about half hour to the furthest one which was fine by us. Next to the railway track but the noise did not bother us and didnt wake us up at all, we slept very well each night! The lodge had everything we needed and we really enjoyed our stay there and was lovely place to relax in the evenings! We had contact with the owner and his daughter and they were both very pleasant and welcoming people! We will definitely be rebooking!

    We spent an additional 30 minutes and several miles looking for a left turn onto Toll Road when it is a right turn! In addition the road name is completely obscured by vegetation. The owner was aware of both facts and said other visitors had the same problem but had not rectified either.

The lodge is an ex-show home, built by Lissett Homes and, featuring contemporary design, it has Italian wall coverings and furniture and the latest audio visual entertainment system.

Highly energy efficient, it has underfloor heating to make sure that it is warm and cosy, whatever the season.

There are two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a social, open plan living room, making it ideal for a family holiday.

This bright and airy room has patio doors leading onto the veranda where you can sit and enjoy far reaching views of the countryside and the railway line, making it a great place for train spotting!

The Mendip Way is a long distance walking and cycling trail and there is a sandy beach just two and a half miles away.

Nearby, Weston-super-Mare provides plenty of entertainment and cafes and also has a well-known pier.

The whole family will love this rural escape and especially its close proximity to the Somerset coastline!
