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.

We loved the free range eggs and all the other goodies left for us. Would definitely recommended this pace to stop. Portishead is lovey and the marina and surronding areas are perfect for a nice getaway. Alun and Lisa McCallister - Shropshire

Peaceful surroundings (even with the geese....which we named and fed daily). Really good location for days out and some lovely eating places, 'The Full Quart' and 'The Super Mare' were both great for food. Would totally recommend this lodge to family and friends.
