About Elizabeth Hyde
My husband and I chose to live in this idyllic part of Somerset 18 years ago in order to be near Bristol where we both worked at the time. Now, neither of us work there and our younger daughter will soon finish school in Bristol, but we love being in the countryside but within about half an hour of Bristol, Bath and Wells. The accommodation is mainly on the first floor of a stone built coach house. It shares a driveway with our home, which is about 40m from the coach house, but far enough away to give you complete privacy. Obviously, we are more than happy to help or answer any questions you may have. Our home and the coach house are situated in a large garden, with orchard, ducks and chickens which guests are very welcome to enjoy.
Elizabeth Hyde purchased this Barn in 2012
Why Elizabeth Hyde chose Langford
We moved here in 1997 when our first daughter was due. The Coach House was built in 2012. The space on the ground floor is used for storing garden furniture, BBQ, bikes and table tennis table with the Coach House on the upper floor to take advantage of the splendid views. Our house is situated about 100ft away from the Coach House. We love living here - it is easy to get to Bristol,Bath, Wells or the coastal resorts of Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare to name but a few. The walking is superb with the Mendips literally on our doorsteps. Golfers are spoilt for choice, and mountain biking and riding is popular around here too. We have fantastic cycle tracks nearby such as The Strawberry Line along a disused railway line linking various villages with pubs and coffee shops en route.
What makes this Barn unique
There is a fully fitted new kitchen, but if you don't want to cook, there is a very good local pub, The Langford, within 5 minutes walking distance, which serves local beers, wines and good food. There are other highly rated pubs in surrounding villages, a short drive or bike ride away. There is a well stocked medium sized supermarket, with petrol station, at the other end of the village. This stays open 24/7, so you never need to worry about running out of anything! We have a few chickens in a separate area of the garden, and we are happy for you to share the eggs. We know this area well, and are always happy to share our knowledge.

Fantastic property, excellent location
Really enjoyed our holiday in Somerset. The Old Coach House is well appointed and located in a lovely garden. Liz and Rick were fantastic hosts and the supplies on arrival were much appreciated. Lower Langford proved to be an excellent base for exploring Somerset and Bath. I would heartfully recommend.
Attention to detail
A brilliant place to stay and relax with everything you could possibly need provided to the highest detail. Would highly recommend this property.
A well-maintained property with lovely views over the owner's garden. Had everything we needed and comfortable beds. The milk, cake and bottle of fizz left for us were greatly appreciated. Ideal base for visits to Wells, Bath, Clevedon and walks in the Mendip hills.
Many thanks for your kind words. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay.
An excellent location for visiting Bristol, Bath and Somerset . Situated in a beautiful garden with wonderful views. Quiet and relaxing, ideal for that weekend break.
Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you had a relaxing break.
Idyllic Country House
A beautiful property, very well decorated, everything you need at the touch of a button and such fantastic scenery to accompany it; this house was everything we needed for a family get away. From the warm welcome with home-cooked goodies, to the lands this building sat in - it was all we needed for our home-away-from-home over Easter. The kids were very excited with the hideaways in the bedroom, likewise the adults were excited to see them all over the house, lots of little gems everywhere you look.
This location was also fantastic to branch out from, Weston 10 miles away, Puxton and Bristol also, we had a wonderful time exploring it all. Thumbs up.
The only down side was leaving!
Many thanks for your review. I’m glad you had a good stay and appreciated all the interesting features of the property!
The house is cosy, clean and well-equipped with spectacular view from the window. My girls love the garden, the chickens, and the swing. The owners are so kind and lovely. Liz is always around when I need help or have a question. Thank you Liz very much for your hospitality and kindness. I only regretted I did not stay for a longer time.
It was lovely having you and your family Amani and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to extend your stay. You’d be very welcome to come back anytime.
Both Bristol and Bath have many attractions - shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. Bath is a World Heritage Site, known for its Georgian architecture and Roman Baths, its recently completed Spa (highly recommended for some rest and relaxation) not to mention its many festivals.
Bristol is a city of balloons, boats, bikes, Brunel and Banksy. It has many attractions, including the Zoo, M Shed, Clifton Suspension Bridge to mention a few.
We are about 30 minutes drive from Clevedon, a genteel Victorian coastal town with a magnificent pier. There are many stylish shops and cafes here and lovely Victorian architecture. Further afield (perhaps 40 minutes), there is Burnham-on-sea with a family friendly sandy beach. The world renowned beaches of Devon and Cornwall are just over an hour away (Devon) and two hours (Cornwall).
Bristol Airport is very convenient - ten minutes drive away from the property. It is recommended that visitors have a car as public transport is time-consuming, although local buses do run through the village.
All distances are by car. It is 35 minutes to Bristol, 45 minutes to Bath, 25 minutes to Wells, 30 minutes to Clevedon, 20 minutes to Weston-Super-Mare.
The Mendip Hills are on our doorstep with many scenic walks, and there are many interesting villages in the area.
There is a disused railway track, called the Strawberry Line, near to us, now used as a traffic free bike and walkers track, which is great for family bike rides between Yatton and Cheddar, with several cafes en route to aid tiring limbs!
Also in the surrounding area are Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury (home of the world famous festival), Tyntesfield (a glorious Victorian stately home now owned by the National Trust), Wells and Westonbirt Arboretum.
Wells is England's smallest city because of its beautiful cathedral. There are lots of medieval buildings to admire, or to pause for a coffee or lunch, and the Bishops Palace and Garden surrounding the Cathedral is always a good place to stroll on a nice day.
Locally, we have a pub within walking distance that does good food, with many more a short drive or bike ride away. We have a comprehensively stocked small supermarket and petrol station at the other end of the village that is open 24/7. We also have a farm shop with cafe bus attached.
