Map

Tudor Manor House is situated in a small village, 7 miles east of J23 of the M5. It is just five miles from Glastonbury and 10 miles from the beaches of Burnham on Sea. The house is within walking distance of a Nature Reserve - a designated area of outstanding beauty - and a short drive from Cheddar and Wells.

The nearest airport is Bristol International and closest train stations are Bridgwater and Castle Cary.

The most popular trips out from the house include Glastonbury and Wells, close by, and Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Burnham on Sea, a short drive away. The North Somerset and Devon coasts are half an hour from the house, with some glorious sandy beaches and cliff-top walks. It takes around an hour to drive to Bath or Bristol. You can also visit the Fleet Air Arm museum at Yeovilton and go hill-walking on the Quantocks and Polden Hills.
