The local area near Coombe Lodge

You’re likely to have booked your wedding at Coombe Lodge for a multitude of different reasons. It might be that you are from Somerset, or maybe you wanted somewhere that was relatively accessible for all of your guests to gather. It might be the scenery that attracted you, or the availability on your chosen date – whatever your reason, we can’t think of a more beautiful part of the world in which to get married!

Many of our brides and grooms hail from London and the south east. They tell us they want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, and give their guests a chance to breathe deeply and enjoy some of England’s prettiest scenery. We often get asked about the local area, and so we thought we’d focus this blog on things for your guests to do once the wedding is over.

We are ideally located about ten miles outside of Bristol, a vibrant city that has a lot of brilliant attractions, museums and restaurants. We particularly love the SS Great Britain and the MShed. There is so much to do at the Harbourside area, where there are also plenty of great restaurants.


We are also only 18 miles from Bath, a world famous city that needs little introduction. Bath would make a great day out for your guests, and gives them somewhere to go if they’re feeling a little bit ‘delicate’ the morning after the night before! If you’re looking for somewhere to spend your hen party, the Thermae Bath Spa is the ultimate in relaxation.


Our nearest town is Weston-super-Mare, only about nine miles from Coombe Lodge. There you’ll find some great sandy beaches and a traditional British seaside town.

Being located in the south west, with great rail, road and air links means that your guests could coincide coming to your wedding with a short break in Devon or Cornwall afterwards. We are also close to the M4 and M5 motorways, making it possible to take a trip to Wales or further north to the Cotswolds.

 We’re based in the rural village of Blagdon, which is also home to Yeo Valley Organic Gardens and dairy. This is a lovely place for all ages to enjoy, although is only open from April until September. Whilst you’re here, you can have a wonder around the gorgeous gardens, and enjoy a quintessentially English cream tea.



Our team here at Coombe Lodge are more than happy to give you and your guests some great ideas of things to do whilst you’re in the area. Please give Martha or one of the team a call today on 01761 463355.
