Welcoming B & B near Bristol Balloon Fiesta and Bristol Airport. Good pubs closeby.

7 bedrooms. Sleeps 17. From £86 per night



Period property in village location, ample parking, lovely walks, near award winning country pub.

Naturally beautiful and nationally protected; we are very priviledged to be situated on the Northern slopes of the Mendip Hills, adjacent to the A38 with the easy accessibility to excellent transport links. Our holiday accommodation is only a short distance from Junction 20, 21 and 22 of the M5, Bristol International airport is less than ten minutes’ drive and the nearby train station at Yatton offers links to Bristol Temple Meads and major rail networks. The bus route 121 run by Wessex Connect stops outside the property.

There is a wealth of attractions for all ages; the beaches of Weston-Super-Mare, Brean, Berrow and Burnham are all just a short journey away, as are golf courses, including Mendip Spring, walking directly onto The Mendips and cycle trails amongst many, along The Strawberry Line.  Fishing on Blagdon and Chew Lakes, historic churches and abbeys, Hot Air Balloon rides, caving, climbing, pony trekking and dry slope skiing will keep the whole family active whilst for those keen to enjoy a little retail therapy, Cribbs Causeway, Cabot's Circus and Clarks Shopping Village are reachable within 30 minutes. Meandering through small boutiques, craft shops and farmers markets at Cheddar, Glastonbury, Taunton, Wells, Bath, Bradford-on-Avon, Clifton Village and Dunster, just to mention a few, will not disappoint. The rural treasures of the Quantock Hills, Exmoor and the Mendips are all close by.


Dating back to pre c1800 and formerly the village general store, The Mendip Gate retains lots of character and charm.

Conveniently situated just south of Bristol Airport on the A38, approx. 5.5 miles, this holiday accommodation offers comfortable, well appointed bed and breakfast accommodation with ample parking, self guided walking holiday packages and holiday parking for guests travelling through Bristol Airport. 

Within easy reach of the Georgian City of Bath, Bristol City, Bristol Airport and Bristol Grounds School at Cheddar, Cheddar Gorge and Cheese Factory, Ancient City of Wells, Coastal resort of Weston-Super-Mare, Clarks Village, Langford Veterinary Hospital, Blagdon and Chew Valley Lakes and numerous leisure activities including caving, climbing, abseiling, pony trekking, dry slope skiing, trout fishing and golf, The Mendip Gate makes the perfect base for a weekend break. Close to Sandford Station St. Monica's Retirement Village.
