The West Country / Somerset region
Clevedon is a quiet, unspoilt seaside town overlooking the Bristol channel with stunning sunsets. It is well-serviced by the M5 motorway giving easy access to Bristol, Bath, Wales, and the North Somerset coast, Cheddar Gorge, and the Mendips.
Bristol is half an hour's drive and Bath an hour's drive. Cardiff is less than an hour and Gloucester is about they same. It is 3 hour's drive or less to London, depending on what route you take and on traffic conditions, if you decide to go by motorway.
The Clevedon area
There is a local cinema which is partly run by volunteers. There is an annual flower festival. Clevedon pier is worth a visit. There are regular boat trips from here along the Bristol channel. There is an Italian restaurant called Giordano's and a Chinese restaurant called the Junior Poon. There is also another excellent Italian restaurant in Hill Road, next to an Italian shop which sells Italian food and wines.
The coastal walk is well worth doing and the shorter roundabout route via the local golf course and the old Church takes about an hour. The beach near the pier and Ladye bay are both pebble beaches. The old bandstand was built to commemorate Queen Victoria's silver jubilee in 1897. Clevedon court is also of historic interest.
Glastonbury music festival takes place in June. Bristol zoo is in Clifton, on the route to Bristol.The tidal bore on the river Severn is one of the largest in the world. There are tennis courts, a bowling green and crazy golf as well as a miniature train ride around the salt house fields to entertain children and families.
In summer there are also donkey rides. Apart from the coastal walk via Ladye Bay, in the other direction is poet's walk , named after Tennyson and Coleridge who were both visitors to the resort. In half an hour or less you can reach the other Victorian coastal resort of Weston-Supermare.

My wife and I have just returned from a week spent at Bayfield which we really enjoyed. The flat really does feel like a home from home. It is as if the owners are your friends and have just popped out leaving a note saying "make yourself at home".
The flat is really cosy and well equipped. The location is superb - very quiet with superb views over the channel from the light and airy lounge. A real advantage is the recently installed wifi which enabled us to keep in touch while we were in Clevedon.
Just a couple of suggestions which would improve the accommodation. The furniture in the lounge has seen better days and for someone with back problems (eg myself) it does not give a great deal of support without layers of cushions. Some firmer furniture would be welcome. Also both of us found it impossible to get a signal from our mobiles. There is a landline and it would be useful to leave a note of the number by the phone so that friends/family can phone in if necessary.
However these are minor niggles. Overall very good accommodation.

We had a lovely relaxing stay here. The flat was beuatifully furnished, comfortable and very quiet. The kitchen was very well-equipped. Shops and a decent pub (The Moon & Sixpence) were all within walking distance. I would happily recommend this flat for those who are seeking a quiet restful break or those using it as a base for visiting the surrounding area.

Bayfiled is a big victorian property with nice high ceilings and generously sized rooms.
The location is ideal for Clevedon, being by the water and within a 10 minute walk of the Hill Road shops. The location is very quiet, but it is only a 5 minute drive to the M5.
The rooms were a generous size and are well furnished and equipped. There is no wifi (which I would suggest is corrected) and, although there was an apple computer to allow access to the internet, we couldn't get this working on line (but, to be fair, I didn't advise the owner as it wasn't a big issue for us).
Only slight downside would be that access is via an external staircase with fairly shallow steps, so you have to take your time, but this is a small price to pay for a very nice and enjoyable place to stay.
We were glad you enjoyed your stay and would like to thank you for your review. I will try to emphasise on our website that the external stairs are quite steep. I will also be investigating Wi-Fi at some time in the near future. Do feel free to book our holiday flat again, if you should like to stay in Clevedon again..and thanks again for your review. Sincerely, Phil Edwards
