C17th Castle sleeping up to 16 guests
The Castle is a Grade II listed detached hill top property enjoying glorious 360 degree views over wooded North Somerset countryside on one side and across the Bristol Channel to Wales on the other.
The main part of the accommodation is housed on 4 floors in an octagonal keep, which sits in the centre of a stunning cobbled courtyard. There are several self-contained bedrooms located in the outlying turrets. The property is set in an acre of private grounds and is a unique choice for a special family celebration or for a weekend away with up to 8 adult couples.
The castle occupies an unrivaled position above the Victorian seaside town of Clevedon. The outlook from the castle is breathtaking in all directions. The immediate views are over the surrounding private grounds, elevated above Clevedon Golf Course. Beyond this, the views stretch to the south and west over the Bristol Channel towards Wales and to the north and east over the local countryside.
Nearby attractions include Clevedon Golf Course which surrounds the castle grounds. The River Wye and Blagdon Lake are conveniently placed for fishing. Horse racing is available in Chepstow and Wincanton, as is sailing on the Bristol Channel and Chew Valley Lake.
The castle is perfectly situated to the west of Bristol with excellent access to both the M5 and M4 motorways. Bristol International Airport, with international and domestic services, is 12 miles to the south. Regular train services run from the nearby station at Yatton (3 miles) to London Paddington, taking 90 minutes.
