The West Country 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.
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.
