The West Country region
Sandford is nestled on the edge of The Mendips. The Mendip Hills (commonly called the Mendips) is a range of limestone hills to the south of Bristol and Bath in Somerset, England. Running east to west between Weston-super-Mare and Frome, the hills overlook the Somerset Levels to the south and the Avon Valley to the north.
Situated mid-way between Bristol and Weston-super-mare, on the famous Strawberry Line, Sandford is ideally positioned for a walking, cycling or climbing type break. Just down the road from Avon Ski Centre. Ideal location if going to a wedding at Coombe Lodge.

Very friendly and although at first you might feel like your on someone's doorstep, you really do have all of your privacy. Had a great week.
Great, we are very pleased that you had a good time, and explored all those places you wanted to, and had a good time with your family to boot ! Hopefully see you again soon. Regards, Tim & Karen

Wonderful cottage/apartment with all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay.
Very nicely furnished, clean, and well maintained.
The owners provided everything we needed as required and had a wonderful, relaxing getaway prepared.
I would definitely stay there again.
Great location near Bristol, Cardiff, Bath, and Cheddar Gorge at a fair price.
I strongly recommend it if you are able to book "The Annex" for your next getaway.
We are very pleased that you found our accommodation to your liking, and had a great time exploring the local area. Thanks again for your custom, and of course please come back and stay with us again soon. Regards Tim & Karen

"A very warm welcome"
We stayed at the annexe as we were attending a wedding at Coombe lodge in Blagdon. We needed somewhere that was stress-free as it was our first trip away with our newborn baby. This place was perfect. The property was very clean, nicely decorated and warm. It was fully equipped with everything we needed&had ample parking space. The owners were incredibly friendly&welcoming without being interfering! I would definitely stay here again.
We are very pleased you had a great stay and enjoyed the surroundings. Thanks again for your custom. Regards Tim & Karen

Well located for exploring the surrounding area, whether on foot, cycling or car. Would be of particular interest to train enthusiasts (which I am not!) given location. A cut above some of the other shoddy self catered accommodation I have used (for the price). Comfortable and with all of the home comforts such as central heating, wifi, freesat, DVD, separate fully equipped kitchen. Good quality bed linen and towels. Would comfortably accommodate 4 people if utilising sofabed. Added attraction of lovely happy family dog! What could be viewed as a negative is the proximity of the accommodation to the owners house, as it is more or less a converted workshop in their back garden. However, this was not an issue as far as I was concerned and I was aware before I visited and the owners couldn't have been nicer, even if I only saw them when I arrived and when I left. Not suitable if you don't have a car.
Thanks for the great review and we are glad you had an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
