  • The space

    The design at Shepherd's Lake View, both inside and outside, has been carefully thought out to ensure that there is plenty of space to socialise, as well as find solitude when required.

    The entrance hallway has a cloakroom and separate WC, If you continue straight on and you’ll find the kitchen/dining/living area where the layout enables your group to come together to cook and be sociable at the same time so that nobody feels left out.

    The kitchen is equipped with everything you will desire to cook up a feast and entertain in style including an induction hob, combi microwave, two toasters, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Quooker boiling water tap and three wine coolers. There are bar stools around the kitchen island which is a great place for informal dining, whilst the main dining area comfortably seats sixteen.

    The living area with comfy sofas and chairs has full-length windows offering both incredible natural light and superb views across the landscaped grounds and Chew Valley Lake, while the cosy TV room also has full-length windows, as well as a 52" widescreen TV and wood burner.

    On warm days open up the patio doors that lead onto the large patio area where there’s a six-seat hot tub, seating, sun loungers and a gas barbecue - it’s the perfect spot for catching some rays, enjoying sundowners or dining al fresco.

    If all this wasn’t enough, there’s also a games room with a bar and a full-size pool table where grown-ups can have some fun and a friendly competition perhaps.

    There are four bedrooms in total. Bedroom 1 has four single beds and an en suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Bedroom 2 also has four single beds, plus a bunk bed and an en suite shower room. Bedroom 3 has two single beds and Bedroom 4 has four single beds; these two rooms share the family shower room. All the single beds are zip and link, meaning they can be converted into a 6-foot double on request. All bedrooms also offer full-length windows and views of either the courtyard or the lake.
    If you love the sound of this place but need more bedrooms, Shepherd's Lake View can be booked with the neighbouring property, Shepherd's Lodge, which sleeps a further ten guests.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

Shepherd's Lake View is set in a small village 8 miles south of Bristol and ten miles north of Wells. It is a tranquil, rural spot close to the Chew Valley Lakes and the northern edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it a great base for countryside walks and scenic bike rides. If there are any keen fishermen in your group, fly fishing is available at Chew Valley Lakes too. Whilst in the region, you really should visit the Cheddar Gorge which is England’s largest gorge and is famous for its caves.

When the bright lights of the city beckon, choose from Bristol or Bath. The city of Bristol offers a great day out and we recommend taking a boat trip around the historic harbour, or climbing aboard the SS Brunel, Britain’s world's first great ocean liner. Do also check out the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery to marvel at the outstanding collections of art, archaeology, geology and natural history.

A trip to the Roman city of Bath, which is a World Heritage Site, is a must and no trip would be complete without a visit to the historic Roman Baths and the iconic Georgian houses of the Royal Circus.

Getting around

Due to the rural location, a car is essential.
