Woodhill Beach House is fabulously nestled on the banks of the River Severn estuary and as a result makes the perfect base for those wishing to escape reality, relax and unwind in style. Due to its much desired location it boasts uninterrupted panoramic views of the estuary, perfect for wildlife lovers! The property has been fashioned in form of a French inspired chic beach house and comes complete with all the necessary modern amenities for a more than comfortably stay.
As you enter the house you will instantly notice the lift, this allows easy access to the basement level and first floor. This is a really fantastic addition, particularly for those who have mobility issues or problems with staircases. The first floor is incredibly spacious and is comprised of an open plan dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The living room is the perfect spot to curl up in one of the comfy arm chairs with a good book while enjoying looking out over the tranquil surroundings and river. The lovely dining room, bright and light due to the beautiful skylight it makes a lovely room for the family to gather together and enjoy a nice meal.
On the first floor two bedrooms can be found. Guests are bound to be arguing over who gets to stay in the wonderful master en-suite bedroom, complete with king-sized bed. Fabulous views of the Estuary and horizon can be enjoyed from the many windows and french doors and even from the comfort of the luxurious bathtub! The second en-suite double bedroom on this level boasts equally impressive views.
Three bedrooms are situated in the upper floor. Two of the double bedrooms are larger in size with access to private washrooms. The smaller of the double bedrooms has nautical themed porthole windows and an en-suite bathroom. Heading back downstairs to the basement, you will find the snug area, perfect for a cosy movie night. On this floor, a further en-suite double bedroom can also be found. Adjoined to this bedroom is a small living space, with a working fireplace, with further access to the garden.
The town of Portishead is just off the coast of the Severn Estuary, Somerset. Due to its proximity and its tributary, Portishead has a rich history as a port and docking yard. There are still exquisite examples of Town’s fine history of Victorian Gothic architecture and plenty of popular trails for keen hikers to explore. Being surrounded by the stunning countryside of Somerset, holiday makers love to visit the likes of Gordano Valley Nature Reserve, Battery Point and The Clevedon Coast Path; where Wales is visible on clear days.
For those looking to make more of the localised attractions, Portishead Marina’s recent re-development means it has a host of bars, cafes and restaurants. If you’re travelling with a family of children then Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, Oakham Treasures and Tyntesfield and Clevedon Court are all a must visit. Portishead outdoor swimming pool is a 10 minute walk from the house, which is ideal on a hot summers day. When holidaying in Portishead, try to time your stay with the Portishead Carnival, Flower Show or Raft Race which are all a celebration of the local heritage.
The house is an ideal base to explore the delights of Somerset. Visit enchanting stately homes such as Stourhead, Iford Manor and Bowood House and Gardens. Discover the charming and quaint English villages of Castle Combe, Frome, and Bradford upon Avon. Not to mention the fabulous selection of delicious pubs and restaurant to try including The Ethicurean at Barley Wood walled garden, Roth bar and grill at Hauser and Wirth or the Talbot Inn in Mells.
