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 Broadchurch. The 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.
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.
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.
