There are goats and chickens on the farm, so if you are up early enough, you can help yourself to some fresh eggs or wander around the stables!
Avon Farm Cottages can be booked separately or all together to accommodate larger groups and families – please see below for more information.
Meadow View is a cleverly converted, wood-clad barn building, with spectacular views of the Avon Valley, which can be enjoyed from the perfectly positioned hot tub. A large and fully equipped kitchen greets guests as they step through the front door, extending through to a Dining Area, with comfortable seating for six, and a spacious Living Area with an impressive free-standing log burner. Head up the contemporary staircase to a spacious king-size bedroom and twin bedroom. A downstairs cloakroom complements the living area, while upstairs is a family bathroom with a walk-in shower, WC and washbasin.
Once you have settled into Meadow View you can decide what you want to do, probably a mix of relaxing in your comfortable space and testing out the hot tub, enjoying the flora and fauna surrounding the farm and just soaking up the atmosphere. However, if you wish to explore you can walk around the estate and stroll along the Avon River to the local pub on the riverbank. Or for the more active, you can hire a bicycle from Clive and Serena (pre-booking required) head down the cycle path, which was once the old train track, to either Bath or Bristol – only 2 minutes from your accommodation. Both cities are full of interesting places to visit and activities for all ages! (See the Bristol & Bath Guidebook.)
Step through the front door (take care there is a single step down) into the open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and seating area stretching in front of you towards the outdoor decking and hot tub.
The bright and spacious, fully equipped kitchen features a large preparation area, with sparkling Corian worktops, oven, hob and extractor fan, fridge-freezer, and a breakfast bar, next to the dining area. On the opposite side of the Kitchen, with a window overlooking the farm courtyard, is the sink, dishwasher, microwave, and a handy breakfast preparation area with a toaster, kettle, and cafetieres.
The Dining Area has a large rectangular wooden table, with comfortable seating for six. To the side of the Kitchen, under the stairs, is a large storage chest with bedding for the sofa bed and a fan. The polished stone floor cleverly defines the Kitchen-Dining Area from the Living Area with its light-pine wood flooring.
Meadow View’s welcoming and spacious Living Area has two comfy three-seater sofas, an armchair, and a small sofa bed, all positioned to enjoy the fabulous wood burner, the view out to the deck and hot tub, and the large Samsung TV with Sky+ box and DVD player. A central coffee table, side tables, bookcase full of DVDs, a footstool and floor lamps complete the stylish yet home-from-home look.
(Note: The Living Area’s bi-fold doors have blinds and curtains to ensure a good night’s sleep for the guest using the sofa bed.)
At the foot of the staircase, off-set from the Kitchen, is a handy W.C., with a corner hand basin and heated towel rail. A large mirror sits above the toilet and is surrounded by charming chicken wallpaper!
A wide, carpeted staircase with a handrail leads up to the landing and two carpeted bedrooms on each side of the eaves and the family bathroom.
Meadow View’s rear-facing, the master bedroom features a resplendent king-size bed with a chrome and crystal bedstead and mirror-cube bedside tables with reading lamps. Complementing the bed is a comfy is furnished with a large double wardrobe, small chest of drawers with a mirror above and power point for a hairdryer (provided) and has a vast under-eaves cupboard, ideal for storing away luggage. A Velux window (with a night-time blind) throws lots of light into the room.
The cosy, second bedroom features two single beds, sharing a bedside table and reading lamp. A large, walk-in wardrobe provides plenty of hanging space, with additional storage space available in a huge under-the-eaves cupboard and in a chest of drawers, with a mirror above. One large Velux window (with a night-time blind) lights the bedroom.
Family Shower Room:
Sitting conveniently between the two bedrooms, the shower room has a walk-in shower, with striking, polished limestone tiling and hand-held and overhead rain shower, a toilet, and a double-length sink with a large over-sink mirror featuring built-in lights and a shaver point.
Leading out from the Living Area through bi-fold doors is an attractive wooden decking area with a four-seater hot tub - ready and bubbling for your arrival - with great views over the surrounding countryside. Step down to the outside dining and seating area, with artificial grass and raised beds attractively planted with pretty plants and bushes.
Enjoying the Farm and its Facilities:
One of the biggest benefits of staying on a farm is there are loads to see and do without even leaving the site, it’s great for families, friends, and couples alike!
Avon Farm Estate has fishing rights for their stretch of the river, just a short walk from the holiday cottages. Guests are welcome to fish in the river, own equipment, and license required.
Bicycles are available to hire from Clive and Serena (Hire directly after booking.)
Please help yourselves to chicken eggs. The chickens are beyond the car park through the opening onto the fields.
Not far from the chickens is a family of goats. They like being fed vegetables, fruit, even bananas!
Walk past the goats, follow the path down to the river and take a riverside walk either way along the public footpaths. The horses do not belong to the farm and are looked after by their owners who come daily to see them. Please do not feed the horses, but they are always happy for a stroke on the nose and a hello.
All around this field are many blackberry bushes, please help yourselves when they are ripe.
There are some tenants on the farm who either live on-site in the converted barns or who just let a stable and field. They are all very nice, and always happy to answer any questions.

Just had a lovely short break at meadow view. As soon as we arrived all stress disappeared the cottage was stylish and clean and alot of room ,we took 2 dogs and had no problem as there was so much room outside for them to exercise and enjoy themselves. Felt we had privacy to relax but owner was around if u wanted him which we didn't .The hot tub was to die for and we used it alot .
