We will welcome you to this relaxed and luxurious rural retreat with its magnificent views across the Chew valley to the foothills of the Mendips.
This is truly somewhere to unwind after a day out exploring the beautiful Somerset countryside or the architectural glory of Bath or Wells.
When you arrive, you can enjoy homemade cake in your room with a pot of tea or cafetière of coffee, watch buzzards circling over the valley or the green woodpeckers in the garden, chill out in our Summerhouse or take a dip in our luxurious indoor pool. You may wish to plan your stay using our books and maps. In the evening, just sit and enjoy watching deer munching on our home grown vegetables.
Centrally situated for visiting Bath, Wells, Bristol, Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip Hills, our B&B is ideal for exploring this beautiful area.

Belluton is a hamlet on the B3130 and within easy access to the A37 for travelling to Bristol and Bath which can be both reached within about a 30 minute drive.
Chew Valley is unique in the West Country, comprising some 35,000 acres of unspoilt and protected countryside which occupies the middle ground of the Bath, Bristol and Wells triangle. Dominating the south side of the valley are the foothills of the Mendips, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The valley contains both the Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes, notably for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. The villages in the Valley are all unspoilt and each has its individual charm and character.
Only seven miles to the north of the Chew Valley is the City of Bristol, the West Country’s financial and business centre, and host of the annual Balloon Fiesta.
The World Heritage Site of the City of Bath, unique, stylish, a shopper’s paradise with its Roman origins is less than half an hour’s drive to the East.
On the Southern side of the Mendips is the historic City of Wells, England’s smallest city, with its ancient Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and lovely market square with its twice weekly market. Nearby is the new designer outlet at Kilver Court.
We look forward to welcoming you soon for what we hope will be the first of many visits.

Relaxing on SummerHouse’s loungers and indulging yourself with the stunning views of the valley? Complete your pleasure with a chilled glass of lager or a swig of local Butcombe Ale, Somerset’s finest brew.
Are you celebrating because it is the weekend, or maybe just because it is Tuesday? Then why not treat yourselves to a nice bottle of chilled Cava, Spain’s famous sparking wine; made in the same way as champagne. Cava is similar to Prosecco but is a little drier and richer and the Cava we have chosen for you at SummerHouse is quite delicious.
But for a special occasion, how could we ever celebrate without Champagne? Something which feels eternal but has only been around for 200 years! Champagne is not the cheapest fizz but when you have something really special to celebrate, then, why not?
Celebrating but a non-drinker? We have Pepsi, Coke, Lemonade, energy drinks, even an (almost!) alcohol free Cava!
