What you can do
Surrounding valleys and lakes are notable for their walking, fishing, birdlife, nature studies and sailing opportunities. The local villages and hamlets are charming and hold a certain character that makes them an interesting visit for guests at SummerHouse.
Bristol is the hub of the West Country and offers visitors exciting ways to spend their time, including fascinating walks exploring the harbour, visiting the SS Great Britain and The Matthew, both of which are moored in the harbour and open to visitors. At night the magnificent Clifton Suspension Bridge is illuminated spectacularly, giving a foretaste of some of the extensive entertaining night life the city offers, from opera and theatre to night clubs or Michelin star dining. Bristol also hosts an annual Balloon Fiesta which we highly recommend !
The city of Bath is a World Heritage Site; unrivalled beauty, interest and architecture. A shopper’s paradise and an architectural wonder with its Roman origins proudly on show. To the south side of the Mendip lies the historic city of Wells. Billed as England’s smallest city, it offers visitors a bustling bi-weekly market, beautiful architecture and an ancient cathedral with a fascinating history and a must-see 12c clock -the original works were made about 1390 and the clock face is the oldest surviving original of its kind in the world. Near Wells is the popular designer outlet, Kilver Court.
When you stay at Summerhouse, you have all the choices; sweeping countryside, or fascinating cities, all from the base of a relaxed and luxurious B&B nestled in the Chew Valley.
