Make a holiday cottage in North Somerset your home away from home

Occupying an enviable stretch of coastline just west of Bristol, and containing a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, North Somerset is a real gem. The rural retreat offers large swathes of beautiful countryside as well as a selection of charming seaside towns to explore. Visitors to the area can enjoy life at a slower pace, which makes it an ideal destination for a romantic getaway. North Somerset will also appeal to outdoor enthusiasts, as it is home to incredible limestone gorges, stunning coastal walks, and plenty of public footpaths.

HomeAway has a wonderful selection of North Somerset holiday cottages to choose from. Most are located in the coastal towns, like our holiday cottages in Clevedon and holiday apartments in Weston-Super-Mare. Starting at prices from less than £300 per week, these cosy escapes all come fully furnished, and offer the visitor the feel of a second home, as opposed to a hotel room. Some holiday cottages in North Somerset also offer a range of additional amenities such as satellite television, pet friendliness, and sea views.

Things to do

-Beaches: The sandy bay at Weston-Super-Mare is the best beach in the region. Stretching for miles, there are several different activities here for people of all ages. At the centre of the beach is a pier that offers plenty of attractions for children. The beach itself is wide and flat, making it perfect for sunbathing and building sandcastles. There are designated areas for wind and watersports.

-Outdoor activities: In addition to a variety of coastal walks holidaymakers staying in a North Somerset holiday cottage can visit Mendip Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Comprised of striking gorges, rocky outcrops, and grasslands full of flowers, there is a lot to see here. Public paths traverse the area and visitors can choose to explore Mendip Hills either on foot or on a bicycle.

-Family attractions: The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare is a favourite with children. The popular attraction offers a variety of rides, play areas, and arcade games that will keep kids of all ages entertained. Families can also make the drive out to Bristol to visit its many family-friendly attractions. Popular choices include Bristol Aquarium, SS Great Britain, and Bristol Zoo Gardens.

-Golf: Golfers will find several lovely parkland courses along the border of North Somerset and Bristol. Bristol & Clifton Golf Club, Ashton Court Golf Course, and Long Ashton Golf Club are all within easy reach of holiday cottages in North Somerset. Bristol & Clifton and Ashton Court offer great casual 18-hole courses, and the course at Long Ashton is highly regarded. All three courses welcome visitors.

Weather in North Somerset

The weather in North Somerset is not unlike the weather in neighbouring Bristol. High temperatures exceed 15°C from May to September and peak in late summer. Winters are chilly with highs hovering around 9°C and lows occasionally dropping to freezing. Rainfall is prevalent throughout the year, but is heavier in the winter than in summer.

Travel to North Somerset

The M5 and A38 both run through the whole of North Somerset, making the region very accessible by car. There are several rail stations in the area, but getting around with a vehicle is highly recommended. Those without a vehicle can hire one from Bristol or from Bristol Airport.

Great place to stay. Lovely hosts . Very relaxing

5 of 5
The coach house is spacious attractive and comfortable with all mod cons plus table tennis ! The owners made us so welcome both in person and in the provisions we had on arrival which included fresh eggs and a cake ! The garden is charming and we sat outside in the evenings next to the stream . A lovely place with lots to see and do locally.

A perfect escape!

4 of 5
I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend to attend a family wedding. Lynn's communication prior to the stay was comprehensive and helpful and it was a pleasure to meet her on arrival. The cottage provided us with everything we needed. Everything was spotless, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The charming garden borders open fields and is a haven for all sorts of birds. It is a short walk from the car park to the cottage, which is tucked away at the back of the village. If you're returning after dark-bring a torch. Although this was not a problem for us, it's worth noting that when guests are not here, Lynn's dog lives in the cottage. We walked to the Princes Motto, the village pub. The food was excellent and the company lively and convivial. This cottage provides home comforts and a chance to enjoy the peace of this lovely place.
