The Lodge is in a great spot for exploring a variety of places from Bristol to Wookey Hole, there's plenty to do. Spotlessly clean and brand spanking new, this accommodation feels very luxurious and has everything you could possibly need for weekend trips and longer stays. Clive has thought of everything and kept me very well informed on directions and the check-in process. I particularly liked the wood burner and leather sofas. If you're looking for a comfortable and relaxing retreat in beautiful countryside with easy access to the delights of Bristol, Bath, Glastonbury, the Cheddar Gorge, Mendips, Wells and more, the Lodge is for you!

We have always wanted to visit and holiday in Somerset. We are so lucky that we found this most beautiful lodge. The accommodation was superb with everything needed to make our stay relaxing. Even the provision of umbrellas shows the finer detail to which Clive our host went to. Not to mention the starter gift of food and drink. There is also a peacefulness and stillness in and around this lodge which made our visit memorable. Stratton-on-the-Fosse is an ideal location to explore the Mendip Hills and Somerset. Places like Wells, Bath, Frome and Cheddar are within easy reach either by car or the local bus services. As for you as a host, Clive was top notch. A gentleman in every way. We will definitely be back... thanks again for everything. Cormac, Deirdre and Liam.
