Find cottages in Bridgwater

Sitting on the edge of the Somerset Levels, with the Mendips to the north and the Quantocks to the west, is the historic market town of Bridgwater.

A trip to the market square gives a sense of the imposing history of the place, with the striking monument of Robert Blake sitting between the historic Corn Exchange and St. Mary’s Church. The town centre is a bustling retail area, with plenty of shops to explore and lots of places to eat and drink, and perhaps indulge in some famous Somerset cider.

Bridgwater has a strong political and naval history. The town was the birthplace of Admiral Robert Blake, widely regarded as one of the most important naval commanders in British and Commonwealth history, and was the place where the famous Monmouth rebellions were crushed in the Battle of Sedgemoor.

The history of Admiral Blake can be discovered at the town’s Blake Museum, in the house that is believed to have been his birthplace. A rather unusual museum to discover during your stay is the Somerset Brick and Tile Museum, and if the brick and tile museum fires your passion for contemporary building methods, then a visit to the nearby Castle House provides an example of one of the first buildings to extensively use concrete to mimic traditional masonry.

Bridgwater is the perfect base for your cottage holiday in Somerset; explore the beautiful surrounding countryside, Cheddar Gorge or visit the famous Wookey Hole Caves.

    Swallow Barn is part of Great House Barns, the converted farmyard to the Great House. This unique holiday property is set on the owner’s 3-acre smallholding with chickens, pigs, bees and sheep grazing in the orchard and paddocks. It lies on the edge of the village, with good transport links, a beautiful coastline and a number of popular tourist attractions. The stone and cob built barns date back to the 16th century, and believed one stage to have been used by Judge Jeffries to hold prisoners before trial in Somerset. North Newton lies between the Somerset Levels and the Quantock Hills, England’s first designated AONB. The Bridgwater to Taunton Canal runs alongside the village and is a popular area for fishing, cycling or a quiet stroll to enjoy the range of wildlife in this wetland habitat. The Quantock Hills, Exmoor National Park and Blackdown Hills are all within easy reach. Swallow Barn is situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels with its battles and myths surrounding King Alfred. Around us are the Quantock, Polden and Brendan hills - fantastic for walkers and watchers of the wild horses and deer. The sandy beaches of Burnham are within 30 minutes’ drive, as are the pebble beaches near Kilve and East Quantoxhead and further sandy beaches at Minehead. Stop at the tea room at Maunsel Lock along the Bridgwater to Taunton Canal and take the boat through the lock and down to the bridge at Lower Maunsel, or follow the Space Walk along the towpath. A leisurely 15-minute walk will take you to the canal from the cottages to the railway at Bishops Lydeard. Enjoy shopping in Street at Clarks Village, or walk the Parrett Trail or Macmillan Way. Alternatively explore Glastonbury with its abbey and tor, or heritage houses and gardens such as Hestercombe Gardens, Montacute House, Tyntesfield House, Barrington Gardens, Dunster Castle, Muchelney Abbey, Cheddar with its gorge, caves and Jacobs Ladder and local produce on sale in the town.
