Little Manor is a 200-year-old Somerset farmhouse that has recently been renovated to provide three deluxe en-suite letting bedrooms for B&B guests.
The house is set in a large garden which includes a copse, lawn and orchard with views to the south of the Mendip Hills.
The rooms and their en-suites have been equipped and decorated to the highest standard, each having its own unique character. There are tea and coffee making facilities in all the rooms together with smart TVs and free WiFi. Guests will have keys to their room and the front door which is kept locked at all times.
3 beautiful double rooms

Stunning rural location in West Hewish, England, United Kingdom
Little Manor is located just over one mile from Junction 21 of the M5 which makes getting around very easy. From here you can reach many popular destinations within an hour.
For city lovers, Bristol is half an hour away while Bath, Wells, Cardiff and Taunton are all within a 50-mile radius.
For country lovers, West Hewish is part of the Somerset Levels and Moors with its unique flat landscape extending from the Victorian town of Clevedon (with its restored pier) on the Bristol Channel coast to Ilchester in the south of the county.
Beloved by bird watchers, parts of the Severn Estuary are protected wading bird habitats, while starling murmurations can often be seen at Ham Wall on the Levels.
The nearby Mendip Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1972, the Polden Hills and the Quantock Hills (also designated an AONB in 1956) provide great walking opportunities (we are just four miles from the start of the West Mendip Way) while the Cotswold Hills (AONB 1966), Exmoor National Park and the Brecon Beacons National Park (International Dark Sky Reserve) are all accessible for the more adventurous.
Special local attractions are the internationally famous Cheddar Gorge with its show caves where Britain’s oldest complete human skeleton was found in 1903, Brunel’s famous Suspension Bridge over the River Avon in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare for beach fun and amazing sunsets.
There are a variety of good pubs and restaurants within a five mile radius, including of course, in Weston-Super-Mare. A list of recommended nearby pubs and restaurants is included in the welcome pack in your room. These range from high-end unique dining at The Ethicurean in the Walled Garden near Wrington through characterful Somerset pubs like the Crown at Churchill and the Plough at Wrington serving great food and atmosphere, to carveries at the Full Quart and Puxton Park, both just a quarter of a mile from Little Manor. There are particularly good Italian and Chinese restaurants in Clevedon, just ten minutes away.
You can view more information on Visit Somerset.
The bus service from Weston-Super-Mare to Bristol passes within a quarter of a mile of Little Manor but having your own transport is the best way of getting around from here. There is a train station within a couple of miles at Worle from where you can access all national services. Bristol International Airport is seven miles away.
Your host – Gillian Johnson
B&B is a new venture for me and after spending 18 months preparing my Somerset farmhouse, I’m looking forward to welcoming guests.
I’m an enthusiastic walker and can help other walkers enjoy the local area. Having lived in Bristol and North Somerset all my life I can also provide helpful tips to all guests on where to go and what to see.
During your stay
I will always be there to greet you on arrival and get you settled in. I don’t cook hot breakfasts (except by arrangement) but I live at Little Manor and the standard buffet plus your additional options, if ordered, will be available from 7.30am in the dining room together with a pot of freshly made coffee. I’m around most of the time during the day for any queries or a chat about local amenities, walks etc.
