Mooning around the Mendip Hills
There’s plenty to see and do across the marvellous Mendip Hills, however you may be weighing up where to stay, so here are a few suggestions to help you out. The Post House is a beautifully restored Grade II Listed former post office and bakery, now lovingly restored with great sensitivity to retain the historic atmosphere. The emphasis is very French and there is a simplicity and calm which all adds to the charm of this character filled cottage. Sleeping up to a dozen occupants, you won’t find another quite like it. The original flag stone floor and large open fireplace provide a wonderful space to chill out, whilst the Mediterranean courtyard is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast.
Wander out towards the picturesque Chew Valley and discover the magnificent Oak Barn, a spacious five bedroom holiday house situated at the edge of the village of Chew Magna, halfway between the cities of Bristol and Bath. Providing self-catering for groups of up to 16, this spacious property benefits from large lawned gardens surrounded by mature trees and open countryside, with beautiful field walks on the doorstep and a cycle route on the rural lane. Private parking is available directly outside the barn.
Park Farm Country Cottages can also be found near Chew Magna offering up two beautifully converted barns on a working farm with private terraces and a shared enclosed garden, with lovely uninterrupted views across open countryside.

The Dairy, formally the milking parlour is light and airy with a large private terrace and has also been equipped to a high standard with slate flooring and toasty under floor heating.
