“Couldn’t have been any better, totally amazed!  We celebrated my best friends hen-do at The Wilderness and spent an absolutely wonderful weekend there. The house is simply perfect for bigger groups. Lots of bedrooms, perfect layout of the rooms, the kitchen fully equipped with all one could need for bigger groups. The garden is just perfect for playing some games or relaxing in the sun. Everything was very clean and well kept. The house is also close to Bath and Bristol”  Helen 2019 – Budapest

History of The Wilderness

Set in large private gardens “The Wilderness” dates from 1640 and was originally a pair of farm cottages believed to belong to Heywood House nearby. The house features original oak beams and the ceilings are low in many places but this all just adds to the charm! The original cottages have been carefully extended over the years to provide very spacious and varied accommodation.

The Wilderness is a  non-smoking and pet-free house.
