About the property

Stylish apartment, sleeps four, in village location with beautiful views

Beautiful stone built coach house, nestling at the foot of the Mendips with many wonderful walks straight from the door. The Coach House was built in 2012 in the grounds of the owners' own home, but far enough away, so privacy is always maintained although we are more than happy to help with any queries that our guests may have.

The front door opens onto a small entrance hall containing a sink (for washing those muddy boots after walks) and a washing machine, together with ample storage cupboards containing iron, ironing board and pegs for the clothes line just outside the coach house. There is also a small freezer in this area for guests' use. The rest of the accommodation is on the first floor, reached by an internal staircase. There are two comfortable bedrooms, one with a new king size bed and a wash hand basin and the other with two single beds. There are blackout blinds in both bedrooms ( as well as curtains) for a great night's sleep. There is a stylish shower room with velux window and a large beamed living area containing fully equipped modern kitchen including Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother and sitting area with picture window overlooking the beautiful garden.

Outside to the side of the Coach House, there is a wooden table and chairs (and parasol) where you can enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine, This is situated next to the Langford Brook, which runs through the garden. There is a wooden bridge giving immediate access to the garden and guests are very welcome to explore the garden, and the few chickens and ducks are always happy to be thrown your food scraps! When available, guests may collect the eggs.

There is a table tennis table in the covered area next to the door to the Coach House, which guests are welcome to use.

There is ample parking space next to the Coach House. The property is situated in Lower Langford, a pretty village with amenities such as a local, popular, pub and a well-stocked supermarket and petrol station, both of which are open 24 hours a day.

There are the historic cities of Bristol, Bath and Wells, all within 45 minutes drive or less, with their many attractions.

For those with children, there are many child friendly visitor attractions in the area, such as Court Farm Animal Park, or Noah's Ark Zoo Farm.

Because we live nearby, we are able to be on hand to answer any queries you may have, and to suggest places to visit and things to do. If, however, you prefer to make your own discoveries, we will not intrude.

We want you to have a wonderful time in this idyllic part of Somerset.

About Elizabeth Hyde

My husband is an engineer and I am a solicitor and we chose to live in this idyllic part of Somerset 18 years ago in order to be near Bristol where we both worked at the time. Now, neither of us work there and our younger daughter will soon finish school in Bristol, but we love being in the countryside but within about half an hour of Bristol, Bath and Wells.

The accommodation is mainly on the first floor of a stone built coach house. It shares a driveway with our home, which is about 40m from the coach house, but far enough away to give you complete privacy. Obviously, we are more than happy to help or answer any questions you may have.

Our home and the coach house are situated in a large garden, with orchard, ducks and chickens which guests are very welcome to enjoy.

Elizabeth Hyde purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Elizabeth Hyde chose Langford

We moved here in 1997 when our first daughter was due. The Coach House was built in 2012. The space on the ground floor is used for storing garden furniture, BBQ, bikes and table tennis table with the Coach House on the upper floor to take advantage of the splendid views.

Our house is situated about 100ft away from the Coach House.

We love living here - it is easy to get to Bristol,Bath, Wells or the coastal resorts of Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare to name but a few. The walking is superb with the Mendips literally on our doorsteps. Golfers are spoilt for choice, and mountain biking and riding is popular around here too.

We have fantastic cycle tracks nearby such as The Strawberry Line along a disused railway line linking various villages with pubs and coffee shops en route.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a fully fitted new kitchen, but if you don't want to cook, there is a very good local pub, The Langford, within 5 minutes walking distance, which serves local beers, wines and good food. There are other highly rated pubs in surrounding villages, a short drive or bike ride away.

There is a well stocked medium sized supermarket, with petrol station, at the other end of the village. This stays open 24/7, so you never need to worry about running out of anything!

We have a few chickens and ducks in a separate area of the garden, and we are happy for you to share the eggs.

We know this area well, and are always happy to share our knowledge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guests who have stayed in The Coach House have all, without exception, commented on how peaceful it was, and what a good nights sleep they had. They all loved the view over the stream and garden, and were very complimentary about the décor of the property.

They seem to have done lots of sightseeing and have had fun finding their way around this special part of Somerset.

I asked a friend to describe her stay - this is reproduced below:

"I have just had an amazing weekend staying at the Coach House. The apartment is really stunning, wood and beams abound. Little doors built into walls, the living room has a window the whole way along the room, and the view beyond, over the garden, is both tranquil and exhilarating. In the morning, I loved hearing the cooing of the pigeons. As the Coach house is only ten minutes from Bristol airport, I'll be back every time I come to visit Somerset and all the local delights - Wells, Cheddar Gorge, Street for shopping, the Mendip Ski Centre and all those enticing farm shops....I just hope you'll have availability! Many many thanks."

Beautifully presented and well positioned apartment for discovering Somerset

  • 5 of 5

A well stocked and beautifully presented apartment set in lovely gardens. All the home comforts provided, as well as some very tasty extras including an orange drizzle cake, freshly laid eggs and a bottle of wine to enjoy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the table tennis got a good work out from our boys. Wonderful window in the living room for the morning sunshine. Plenty space for a family of four.

Very well situated for discovering Somerset. Just 6 miles from Cheddar Gorge and within a short drive of Wells, Glastonbury and the coast at Weston super Mare. We had a day in Bath too visiting all the historic sites. Great walks nearby to stretch the legs and plenty of fresh air!

Easily filled a week with many more things we would have liked to done if we had more time.

A beautiful spot and thoroughly recommended.

excellent cosy, but airy flat, with beautiful garden view and most hospitable hosts

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to Lower Langford, bus routes, Mendip hills, kind, helpful hosts who really looked out for us, but gave us our privacy, cheery, friendly and beautiful view through the big east-facing windows over the garden. Most comfortable and homey.

Would absolutely stay there again.

Absolutely wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

We spent 14 days with two kids (age 13 and 11) in the Coach House, and we never had such a friendly and cozy accomodation before.

Liz and Rick are really lovely hosts, prepared a very nice "Welcome" with cake (homemade by the daughter) and local foods and offered us a very familar feeling. We loved the garden, the chicken, the view outside the window, table-tennis... The Couch House is clean, comfortable and well equipped, we missed nothing. Liz kept all informations about the area in a handbook, which was our daily assistant. The appartement is located in beautiful Somerset and close to Bristol, Bath, Wells, Cheddar and the coast. The Mendip Hills are a beautiful hiking area, Cheddar Gorge and Burrington Combe offered us stunning views. We loved staying here for 14 relaxing days - and we will come back for sure!

A relaxing and beautiful home from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time in the Coach House in Lower Langford. The house is very clean, perfectly equipped and lovely decorated. The view through the huge windows into the garden with the stream and colourful flowers is gorgeous.

Liz and Rick are so friendly and helpful and provided a yummy wecome pack with milk, jam, toast, eggs, yoghurt fruits and vegetables. So it was absolutely easy to relax right after our arrival.

Lower Langford is a perfect location to discover beautiful North Somerset and beyond. With places like Bath, Glastonbury, Cheddar (Gorge), Wells, Bristol, the beautiful Mendips area and more within easy reach there are plenty of things to do.

Both Bristol and Bath have many attractions - shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. Bath is a World Heritage Site, known for its Georgian architecture and Roman Baths, its recently completed Spa (highly recommended for some rest and relaxation) not to mention its many festivals.

Bristol is a city of balloons, boats, bikes, Brunel and Banksy. It has many attractions, including the Zoo, M Shed, Clifton Suspension Bridge to mention a few.


We are about 30 minutes drive from Clevedon, a genteel Victorian coastal town with a magnificent pier. There are many stylish shops and cafes here and lovely Victorian architecture. Further afield (perhaps 40 minutes), there is Burnham-on-sea with a family friendly sandy beach. The world renowned beaches of Devon and Cornwall are just over an hour away (Devon) and two hours (Cornwall).


Bristol Airport is very convenient - ten minutes drive away from the property. It is recommended that visitors have a car as public transport is time-consuming, although local buses do run through the village.


All distances are by car. It is 35 minutes to Bristol, 45 minutes to Bath, 25 minutes to Wells, 30 minutes to Clevedon, 20 minutes to Weston-Super-Mare.

The Mendip Hills are on our doorstep with many scenic walks, and there are many interesting villages in the area.

There is a disused railway track, called the Strawberry Line, near to us, now used as a traffic free bike and walkers track, which is great for family bike rides between Yatton and Cheddar, with several cafes en route to aid tiring limbs!

Further Details:

Also in the surrounding area are Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury (home of the world famous festival), Tyntesfield (a glorious Victorian stately home now owned by the National Trust), Wells and Westonbirt Arboretum.

Wells is England's smallest city because of its beautiful cathedral. There are lots of medieval buildings to admire, or to pause for a coffee or lunch, and the Bishops Palace and Garden surrounding the Cathedral is always a good place to stroll on a nice day.

Locally, we have a pub within walking distance that does good food, with many more a short drive or bike ride away. We have a comprehensively stocked small supermarket and petrol station at the other end of the village that is open 24/7. We also have a farm shop with cafe bus attached.
