The perfect holiday home!
The little house really is the perfect holiday home - incredibly clean and comfortable, equipped with everything you need and in a really great location next to a park, a few minutes from the beach and a short walk to town. There is also plenty of parking and supermarkets nearby (including a Coop and Tesco within 10 minutes walk). We really appreciated the welcome pack on arrival and the owner is a lovely host. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here as an absolute gem.
Beautiful little house so close to the park and beach!
We had a wonderful stay at Jan's property last week. The house was in the perfect location, tucked down a quiet street overlooking a lovely park, and only five minutes walk to the beach. The house was spotlessly clean and came well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Jan was a wonderful host and even stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend to others looking for a great place to stay in Weston!
A lovely, cosy & comfortable 'Little House!'
Had a lovely stay here, wish it was longer then the 2 nights we had! Everything was there what we needed...bread, milk, butter, some gorgeous marmalade! The little touches was very much appreciated, especially the birthday card & little pressie for my son who was 18 during our stay here! Will definately stay again but a bit longer next time! The area was great, too, so convenient next to the beach and just a short walk to everything else! Loved it here!
Our little cottage
Had a great time at the little house and our son already calls it his little cottage. It was exceptionally clean, comfortable and welcoming. We loved it and we will be back
Another great stay at the Little House
Yet again we had a fantastic time staying at the Little House. It was a lovely base for us to explore the surrounding area including Exeter and Bristol. Jan made us feel so welcome - nothing was a bother!
It was great! BUT?
There wasn’t enough kitchen things, we only had one small very small saucepan, and it was very hard to cook some things.
Just across the road from the Little House is the lovely Clarence Park a great favourite with all ages.There is the picturesque Clarence Park Bowling Club which welcomes spectators and a delightful Victorian Café called Oliver’s. Golf at Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club is available a short walk from the Little House and the best end of the beach is just across the road if you just want to watch the world go by or you could hop aboard the little promenade train which offers a leisurely way to explore the seafront.
Weston-Super-Mare is the gateway to the stunning South West of England not just offering a spectacular beach but also a vibrant town centre within touching distance of the beautiful Somerset countryside. A year round destination Weston offers the arts, theatre, history and adventure. The vast beach with its golden sand offers the traditional donkey rides throughout the main season, a favourite with children for generations. Along the seafront there is the newly refurbished Grand Pier offering a unique view of the coast and providing superb rainy day entertainment for all the family. Weston SeaQuarium, a sea life centre with cafe also provides a great morning or afternoon out.
Other Weston attractions include two theatres The Blakehay and The Playhouse, both offering various musical and cultural arts and performances with many well know acts taking to the stage. Weston's Golf Club is always a favourite as is the UK's biggest helicopter museum.
For those who like walking there are an amazing array of parks and gardens and a host of superb walks including the West Mendip Way, and many National Trust locations like Brean Down, Sand Point and Middle Hope.
Sand Bay - Only a five minute walk away is the open top bus that takes you to the unspoilt Sand Bay here you will find lovely beach walks and for the more adventurous an outstanding walk along the headland to Sand Point and Middle Hope. Sand Bay Tea rooms is to be recommended for a refreshing cuppa and a slice of cake after all that exercise and sea air! The New Castle Cafe is also recommended.

The reserve itself is mostly level with a good path to enjoy a stroll in stunning surroundings. Parking is available close by as are cosy pubs providing refreshment.

The Village of Priddy on the top of the Mendips (800 feet above sea level) hosts Priddy Folk Festival and Priddy Fair during the summer. It has ancient connections and the Priddy Nine Barrows and Priddy Circles are popular attractions for those interested in history. The Queen Vic Pub with its log fires and wholesome food is a good place to enjoy lunch. Ebbor Gorge is also close by and worth a visit. There are various grades of walks marked up on the map in the car park.
Wells Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace at Wells are well worth a visit in Britain's smallest city. The medieval square hosts a street market every Wednesday and Saturday morning where you will find tempting food and goods to buy and pavement cafe's where you can enjoy a coffee or a bowl of homemade soup. In the market there is usually a man selling homemade sausages and he has the largest frying pan I have ever seen where he cooks and serves his creations offering them for sale with soft white bread and onions, delicious!!
Burnham is a short drive away and also Brean Down. Bath and Bristol also provide lots of interest to enjoy
