Past the church, up through the pretty village, to Andrew and Rachel’s relaxed eco-friendly house. Through your own doorway, find a smart bedroom with tip-top linen, TV, a basket of books, French windows onto patios – perfect for an evening glass of wine – and a sleek bathroom with thick white towels. Wake for bacon and sausages from the Potting Shed Farm Shop, eggy bread, local jams. Walton Brook runs through the garden, a visiting pair of ducks can be spotted on the pond, and you can walk through ancient woodland to join the coastal path to Clevedon. Close to Portishead and only 25 minutes from Bristol. A leafy retreat.
