7 holiday lets sleeping from 2 to 6Muddlebridge House Holiday Cottages consist of seven delightful and well equipped properties sleeping from 2 - 6 guests, with an excellent range of on-site facilities (including indoor pool), and provide the ideal setting for a relaxing self-catering holiday or break in some of the most lovely scenery of the the West of England.
The oldest parts of Muddlebridge House are believed to have been one of several small local potteries, some of which existed until well into the 20th Century. In the late 18th Century a large extension was added to the original building at the same time as two stable blocks and a carriage barn to create an elegant Georgian gentleman's residence and then in the mid 1980s the stables and barn were converted to form the cottages.
Each self-contained cottage has its own unique character and layout and is comfortably furnished. The open-plan living rooms provide unique sitting, dining and kitchen areas. There are excellent facilities onsite with over 2 acres of pretty grounds, an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, two games rooms, extensive outdoor play equipment and games areas, pets corner, cycle hire, picnic areas and barbecues.
