Mon-Friday Changeover. Cream Tea on Arrival
About Trudy Waterhouse
We moved to Lakeside Barns in Bleadon in 2002. This property was the dairy of the farm next door, which consisted of an old large grain barn, which is now our home and other outbuildings. Over the years we have slowly renovated, Knoll, Mendip and South Hill Cottage. Bleadon and the Somerset levels and Mendip Hills are beautiful, we love it here and its been worth all the hard work.
Trudy Waterhouse purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Trudy Waterhouse chose Bleadon
We have both always wanted to live in Bleadon in Somerset, it is such a beautiful area. All our married life we have renovated properties and to find a barn conversion in the heart of Bleadon was fantastic. We are so pleased we have finished the holiday cottages so that now other people can enjoy this peaceful Somerset location. A real escape.
What makes this Cottage unique
While you are staying at Lakeside Barns the one thing you will notice is the lack of noise. At night apart from a hooting owl or call from a fox there is just wonderful silence. All the properties have outside lighting but because there are not any street lights you can really appreciate the illuminating night sky. We now have a seating area by our large duck pond, looking out onto the views and paddocks, a perfect place to sit and unwind with a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

Lovely clean cottage, with memory foam beds, comfy sofas, TVs in both bedrooms and a small private patio. Trudy is a very welcoming host, with scones and fresh flowers on arrival. We loved seeing the animals and particularly the very friendly dogs who came to visit. The cottage is an easy journey to beaches and many sites, we particularly enjoyed visiting Tyntesfield and Wells.
Took my 83 year old mum for a 4 night break at the end of March we had a really lovely relaxing time with beautiful weather had lunch outside it was so warm, cottage was lovely and comfy all on one level which ticked all the boxes for my mum it was a real home from home would definitely recommend and return, beautiful surroundings and so peaceful. So appreciated the cream tea on arrival after a long drive thank you

Ideal positioned for visiting various locations ,only downside was the weather ,miserable and gale force winds.
The cottage is lovely and comfortable everything you need and it was nice and warm when we arrived after a chilly journey. Trudy is always so cheerful and kind.
Relaxing time away
A really relaxing time away in South Hill Cottage at Lakeside Barns . Lovely cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers too 😊� Trudy was truly lovely and made us feel very welcome. A very relaxing week and so quiet didn't want to leave ..... what more can you say .. brilliant 😊�
Perfect location & excellent accommodation
We wanted a peaceful rural setting and we certainly got this. From the very warm welcome by Trudy and Paul to a very well thought out cottage we immediately felt at ease and very comfortable. We used the cottage as a base for visiting friends and relatives in Penarth and Bristol as well as meeting up with others locally. Bleadon has a very strong sense of community and is a very friendly place. We enjoyed the café and used the village shop. The Queen's Arms in Bleadon was great for both lunch and (especially) dinner. We also recommend the well judged food at the Oak House Hotel in Axbridge- a charming village nearby with an historic and continental feel. The relaxed environment at the Lakeside Barns, together with the beauty of the Mendips and the pleasure of the farm animals made this a perfect stay. We intend to return!
