About Trudy Waterhouse

We moved to Lakeside Barns in Bleadon in 2002. This property was the dairy of the farm next door, which consisted of an old large grain barn, which is now our home and other outbuildings. Over the years we have slowly renovated, Knoll, Mendip and South Hill Cottage. Bleadon and the Somerset levels and Mendip Hills are beautiful, we love it here and its been worth all the hard work.

Trudy Waterhouse purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Trudy Waterhouse chose Sedgemoor

We have both always wanted to live in Bleadon in Somerset, it is such a beautiful area. All our married life we have renovated properties and to find a barn conversion in the heart of Bleadon was fantastic. We are so pleased we have finished the holiday cottages so that now other people can enjoy this peaceful Somerset location. A real escape.

What makes this cottage unique

While you are staying at Lakeside Barns the one thing you will notice is the lack of noise. At night apart from a hooting owl or call from a fox there is just wonderful silence.

All the properties have outside lighting but because there are not any street lights you can really appreciate the illuminating night sky.

We now have a seating area by our large duck pond, looking out onto the views and paddocks, a perfect place to sit and unwind with a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

Mendip Cottage, Lakeside Barns

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely, and very well equipped- we had everything we needed for a great holiday. We were greeted by Trudy, Archie the dog and a lovely cream tea which was very welcome after a long car journey. Very handy for visiting the area, both the coast and the countryside, and we had a lovely lazy day "at home" sitting by the pond and putting the world to rights, and it's a great place to do just that. We can highly recommend for a relaxing break. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. Frank, the other dog, is a real character and really friendly.

An ideal base for our trip

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mendip Cottage, which proved an ideal centre for visiting Wells with its magnificent cathedral, Glastonbury, and friends in Cirencester.

The cottage is finished to a high standard, and comes fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Importantly, the internet connection worked well, allowing us to research our destinations online.

Thank you, Trudy & Paul for making it a memorable stay. Your cottage is highly recommended.

Quiet, spotless and ideally located

  • 5 of 5


Knoll View is perfectly situated for easy access to Weston, Cheddar Gorge, the Steam Railway and Brean beach with its miles of sand.


The cottage itself is spotless, offering all you need for a break away from the rat-race. Enjoying a glass of wine overlooking the duck pond really slows things down.


We enjoyed an excellent meal at the local Indian, and the following night we had an excellent Chinese delivered. We even had breakfast in the Edwardian tearooms at the end of the Grand Pier.


We took advantage of the free Spa day offer provided with the booking, well worth a visit.


Paul and Trudy were always available to answer any questions and happy to pass on local knowledge of the best places to visit / eat.

All in all, we had a fantastic relaxing time and would have no hesitation in returning.

Superb Mendip Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Mendip is a beautiful barn cottage with lovely peaceful surroundings in a central position in the countryside .The cottage was immaculate with everything you need for a comfortable stay , with fresh flowers ,tea and scones on arrival .

We visited Cheddar Gorge ,Dunster Castle,ss Great Britain to name a few.We enjoyed our stay so much we luckily stayed for a second week and visited Lacock Abbey and village ,Cheddar Reservoir ,Wells Cathedral and Palace.

It was good to know that after a day travelling around ,we were going back to a lovely peaceful cottage,where we would have a good nights sleep in a comfy bed.

A lot of care and thought has gone into making Mendip cottage a lovely place to stay. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

We also felt very much at home withTrudy and Paul around for a friendly chat .

Lovely well appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

Mendip Cottage is a lovely well appointed cosy cottage. The grounds are lovely with sheep, Shetland ponies and very hungry ducks, coots and geese (and mustn't forget Archie the dog). A cream tea was a lovely welcoming treat. Well situated for sightseeing the area. Would definitely recommend
