Beautiful Bath

Things to do and places to go!

The two beautiful self-contained cottages are situated on a traditional farm in picturesque rural Somerset which is a truly beautiful area of the country nestled in quite rolling hills and agricultural land.  However the cottages are still ideally located between Bath (13 miles), Bristol (9 miles), the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare (17), the Cathedral City of Wells (16), and a stone throw from the Mendip hills. Perfect for quiet breaks, great rambling, wildlife viewing and of course fly fishing.

With the Mendip Hills only 10 minutes away you are within easy access of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves.  The surrounding local countryside offers beautiful quiet walks through the gently undulating land and quaint villages that date back to pre doomsday.

On our farm there is the chance to watch the milking and other farm activities such as lambing in season.  We also offer guided nature walks around the local area where close encounters with Roe deer, badgers and foxes can almost be guaranteed.  We even have a newly colonised wild population of Barn owls.  There is however a hand reared barn owl called 'Maisie' who is always a big hit with children and can be seen at much closer quarters.

There are many small rain fed rivers in the area and smaller stillwaters if the big lakes seem daunting to the new comer to fishing.  But the cream of the fishing is to be had on the Bristol Reservoirs.
 

 
 
A view from the Holiday Cottages Garden   Regilbury Farm Holiday Cottages are situated only 3 miles from the world class trout fishing at Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes making us ideal for the keen Fly Fisher.  Also there is the little known gem of the Barrow Tanks (another Bristol Water Fishery) which are well worth a visit and offer some of the best dry fly fishing on offer anywhere in the world (a grand claim, but give them a go and then you can disagree!). 

Our son Ben represented the England Youth Fly Fishing team in international competition in 1995 and now offers guided trips and tuition on the lakes, for more information see
