Kingston Seymour is a small rural village on the coast between Clevedon and Weston super Mare. The village church is a grade 1 listed building and worth a visit.  A walk to the seawall is also worth a trip - the area is a designated SSSI (site of special scientific interest) and is renowned for its bird-life so remember to bring your binoculars.


The town of Clevedon is 4.5 miles away with its grade 1 listed Victorian Pier and Bandstand, Poet’s Walk, Salt House Playing Fields and National Trust property Clevedon Court.  Clevedon also featured heavily in the ITV series BroadchurchThe Strawberry Line is a very popular cycling trail converting the old railway line from Clevedon to Cranmore into a network of safe paths for walkers, cyclists, families and residents to enjoy.


At Wraxall (halfway between Kingston Seymour & Bristol) is the recently acquired National Trust property Tyntesfield House - well worth a visit in our opinion.


Portishead has a nice marina - try parking near Waitrose and walking alongside the marina, past the lock gate and out to the seawall.  You can eat at The Royal Hotel or Bottelino's or try Hall & Woodhouse, a pub with great views and an awarding-winning design of glass and shipping containers!


We are just 15 miles south of the city of Bristol with endless attractions such as the Cathedral, the Zoo, the SS Great Britain, The Matthew, Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Museum & M-Shed, the excellent @Bristol complex and the brand-new Cabot Circus Shopping Centre.  You can also visit the fantastic Bristol Balloon Fiesta which takes place at Ashton Court Estate every August.  There are great entertainment venues too: Bristol's Colston Hall and Hippodrome have excellent performers/shows and the O2 Academy is a smaller more intimate venue which also has really good bands performing there.


At Junction 17 of the M5 there is the very popular shopping mall at Cribbs Causeway.


In the opposite direction we are 12 miles from the popular seaside resort of Weston super Mare with the Seaquarium, Pier, Playhouse Theatre and shops and, of course, the beach and donkey rides.


The Discover North Somerset website gives us a mention and is a useful source of information of things to do and what's on in the local area.  Another useful website is Time Out in North Somerset


Bath, with its many attractions is easily reached by car or by train (Yatton railway station is 2.5 miles away, 5 minutes drive from the cottages).


Other notable areas to visit are Cheddar Gorge and Caves; Wookey Hole and Caves; the historic City of Wells with its beautiful Cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace; Glastonbury with its beautiful and mystical Tor; The Mendip Hills for walking.  Have a look at the Hidden Somerset website for some interesting places too. There are also many good local walks.


Finally, we should mention our local Somerset cider!  Our county is a traditional cider-making area and we are lucky enough to have some great producers close by.  Beware though, it goes straight to your knees!  Try Crossman's Cider from Mayfield Farm, Hewish about a 15 minute drive from us down the A370.   Ben is Phil's second cousin and is a small traditional producer.  Thatchers Cider is about a 20 minute drive away at Myrtle Farm in the village of Sandford.  You may be familiar with Thatchers Gold but you really should try the Traditional or Cheddar Valley varieties which are cloudy in appearance.  Thatchers now own The Railway Inn next door to Myrtle Farm where you can experience the cider menu as well as some excellent dining (booking recommended).
