Character house in medieval village square in the Mendips Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Cheddar Gorge. Bristol, Bath and beaches all in easy reach.

Once a 16th-century inn, the Old Angel in Axbridge is a lovely character house that enjoys pride of place in a medieval village square. Quirky and homely with wood burners, an open fire, rambling garden and oodles of charm, it’s a happy blend of an old property with contemporary comfort. Artisan and eclectic in style and décor, with flagstone and wood floors, a fireplace or two, scattering of beams, stone sinks and Moroccan style wet room, there’s an emphasis on natural materials and hand built features by the artist owners. Spread over three storeys, with three bedrooms on each of the first and second floors, and an upstairs living room overlooking The Square, the flexible accommodation happily suits either small or larger numbers of guests.
Hidden away from the house there’s a large rear ‘secret’ garden with steps leading up to various terraces. It’s accessed by a side alleyway – you’ll pass the Little Angel apartment en route – a throwback to Axbridge’s medieval layout. Situated in the rich Mendips landscape, close to the renowned Cheddar Gorge and Caves, the Old Angel offers the best of both worlds: stunning Somerset countryside, walks and views with easy access to city buzz and events; vibrant Bristol and Georgian Bath are both easy to visit. In the area you will find heritage sites, culture and coast with Wells, Glastonbury, Weston-super-Mare and Bristol airport all nearby. The nearest beaches are Brean and Uphill at 9½ miles. Axbridge has three good pubs serving food 30 yards, charming tea room, shop 30 yards and there are a wide variety of eateries, farm shops and farmers markets in the area.

    Our group of friends really enjoyed the Old Angel. The garden would be great fun in the summer. Big kitchen diner, comfortable lounge and other spaces to gather. Bedrooms and bathrooms comfortable, quirky. A pleasure to stay.
