Rented The Old Angel for daughter (bride) and 4 bridesmaids night before her wedding - they got ready there and left to go to another location. Only stayed one night however owner was very accommodating in allowing us to collect bags later than check out time on Sunday.
Overall excellent property and would thoroughly recommend
If you're looking for a relaxing time away this is definitely the place! We had such a wonderful weekend away in this house, it's in such a fab location with two pubs to choose from, a tea room and a co-op all just outside the front door.
Our whole group fell in love with the house as soon as we walked through the door, it's such a beautiful property with all of the facilities that you would need. We would all 100% recommend this house.
Thank you so much Marianne for such a wonderful stay!
The Old Angel was the perfect choice for our family visiting from the States. It has all the character and history we were looking for with just the right mix of modern conveniences. Marianne made us feel so welcome and there were nice little touches everywhere making the house warm and inviting. Everything was clean and comfortable and you have everything just a few steps away - a little grocery store with everything you need, 2 pubs and a tea house that were all very good, friendly people and beautiful area. We loved every minute and really hated to leave. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us Marianne and Simon!
This is a gem of a property!
We stayed here as a group of 9 and it was so spacious. Lovely kitchen with everything you would need and big sitting room! Comfy beds and plenty of bathrooms. The village of Axbridge was really lovely, there was a Market on the Saturday morning which was a real treat. We ate at The Lamb Inn, in the square, which was really good, everyone was really friendly. We went to western super mare which was about 25mins in car and to Bristol for night out. Bristol was about 40mins away, I'd recommend prebooking taxis if you do this. I couldn't recommend this place enough, we would definately return.
Our Angelic Holiday Break
The Angel house is a wonderful blend of old world accomodation with modern comforts. The kitchen is especially well equipped and the combination of bedrooms made it perfect for our varying numbers before and after a family wedding in the area. Its situation in Axbridge is fantastic with a shop and two lovely pubs right on its doorstep. The owners Marianne and Simon were very hospitable and accomodating. We had a wonderful stay.
A wonderful weekend in Somerset
We were a party of 7 adults and stayed very comfortably in Marianne and Simon's wonderful home in Axbridge. Located on the market square the house was easy to get to, parking was plentiful (and free) and the convenience of the pubs and supermarket on our doorstep were so helpful. We loved the interior of the 3 story home, so well furnished and thought out. Our rooms were all very comfy with excellent mattresses, linens and towels. We especially loved the big kitchen dining table and enjoyed our grazing breakfasts there before we headed out for the day. We cooked a big roast on the Sunday eve and the oven was perfect, a great range! With only one proper shower, getting ready in the morning was a bit of a planned effort but the baths in the other bathrooms were utilised too. It would have been fun to have some board games in the living room. Marianne and Simon have everything else in the house you could hope for, the pantry is well stocked, there are a million pots,pans and plates and even a welcome bottle of Prosecco, lovely! My mum had the "best birthday weekend ever", thank you!
PARKING & ACCESS:
The Old Angel is located in the middle of a village Square. Car parking is either in the Square itself or one of two village-owned car parks literally around the corner. All are free, some with a daytime restriction .
To unload/receive supermarket deliveries etc: you can literally pull up directly outside the front door of the house.
GARDEN ACCESS/ LITTLE ANGEL APARTMENT
The terraced and secluded back garden to the Old Angel is yours to enjoy. You'll pass the Little Angel en route: a garden apartment at the rear of the Old Angel house where friends of ours sometimes stay (own separate entrance via alleyway).
The whole garden is yours to enjoy - it is large enough for privacy. You can also share the courtyard/outdoor dining area near the apartment.
The uphill sloping garden is informal in style with terraces and steps - so do watch yours!
