Description

Blackbird Lodge is set within a development of contemporary eco-lodges at Strawberryfield Park, nestled on the fringe of the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the perfect setting to enjoy tranquil countryside views.

Internally, Blackbird Lodge has an ultra-modern look and is furnished to the highest standard throughout. The spacious living areas are made to feel bright and airy with the large windows and glass doors providing ample natural light. On the colder evenings, warm yourself up using the state of the art wood burning stove - perfect for a cozy winter break.

Externally, the lodge features a private decked area complete with a hot tub. This is a wonderful spot to sit in the afternoon sunshine with lunch, or simply relax in the hot tub after a day of exploring the local area.

Strawberryfield Park is perfectly positioned for exploring everything Somerset has to offer. The historic City of Wells is within easy reach, famous for its Cathedral, Bishops Place and Market Square along with the beautiful City of Bath. Also near by is Cheddar Gorge, the gorge is the site of the Cheddar show caves, where Britain's oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, estimated to be over 9,000 years old was found in 1903. You'll also be a short drive away from Wookey Hole Caves and Longleat House and Safari Park. For those looking to make the most of the sun, you can also escape to the coast in next to no time at all with Weston-Super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea both close by. With all these brilliant places on your doorstep you'll never be short on things to do.

Another winner from Blue Chip!

Strawberryfield eco lodges are just perfect for a break away from our hectic life. The lodge was as described and meet all our needs perfectly. For me, it's things like crisp bed-linen,fluffy towels, comfy beds and all the mod cons one would have at home that make it a pleasure to holiday here. The hot tub on the deck was a selling point and did not disappoint. We try to bring our Vizsla dog with us whenever we holiday as he is part of the family too and we were made to feel very welcome. No hesitation in recommending these lodges.

Blackbird Lodge, Cheddar

This is the first time we have booked through Blue Chip Holidays but it won't be the last. The Eco Lodge was the best we have ever stayed in and although the photos were good they did not do it justice. The Lodge was light, modern and with every convenience. We have paid much more for poor quality and often the little details are overlooked, or things are not too clean and you need to spring clean before you unpack, but not here. The Lodge was spotlessly clean even though it was dog friendly. The fixtures and fittings were top quality and nothing in the lodge had been 'done on the cheap' which is often the case. The little touches like the bath robes, the dog bowls and mats, the washing tablets etc. The Welcome basket was also a lovely touch with local products. The beds were comfy and the hot tub was wonderful. Just a shame we did not get a good week for the weather but we enjoyed a few evenings at the on site cider barn and we can certainly recommend the black rat cider along with the Draycott Blue Ploughmans, simple food done well. We enjoyed visiting Wells, Glastonbury as well as Brean Sands National Trust site which was fab for a good run for the dog and even Cheddar Gorge allowed dogs in the open top bus and in the caves. Lots of dog friendly places to visit and eat. Our dog Sam loved to race around in the field on site and the orchard and although some of the other lodges were having decking built the guys who were doing the work were keen not to disturb us and were always thoughtful. We will definitely be back.

Definitely recommend (Already have!)

We had a brilliant holiday, the lodge was perfect and had everything you needed. Mike was very helpful, as were the staff at the Cider Barn. Great places to visit wihin a short drive, especially Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole. Hot tub was a fantastic start and end to each day. Definitely recommend (Already have!)

Lovely Somerset Break

Me, my boyfriend, his grandma and our little chihuahua stayed at Strawberryfields park, Draycott near Cheddar. We were welcomed by the owners on arrival who had kindly left us a welcome basket in our kitchen. The lodge was superb and spotless and provided us the perfect base for our holiday. The two ensuite bathrooms were a bonus! We loved getting back to the lodge in the evenings and enjoying the hot tub! Perfect!

Wish we were here longer!

Loved Blackbird Lodge. We loved the hot tub and visited Early Doors for a cider :) Went to Wells and Cheddar. If you are here on a Sunday, you can spend Hours in the car boot/Market down the road. Wish we were here longer! Teenage daughter loved the WiFi, TV, Hot tub - lights are good. Husband loved the tub and coffee machine. If we lived nearer we would definitely come again.

Fantastic short break

Our whole experience with Blue Chip has been perfect. Booking online was simple and easy. When we arrived at the lodge the keys were waiting for us in the door. The lodge itself was totally spotless, beautifully decorated, and has everything you need to make your break comfortable. We even had a welcome basket which was a wonderful suprise! The hot tub was perfect, and although the park is located just off a busy road you don't often hear traffic. Beautiful location and fantastic lodges. We'll be going back!

Our stay was very enjoyable.

We have had a lovely stay (including Rosie our Cocker Spaniel). The lodge had everything we needed - really loved the hot tub. Everywhere we visited was easy to get to and was only a short drive away! Thank you for a fantastic few days! So nice to be in the countyside - its a bit different from living in a town. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Wow!

Wow! Superb accommodation, we all loved the hot tub. Great walking and our dog loved both the Gorge and local walking. It's really pleasurable to have a lovely place to stay en-famille with our pet. We thought the decor was amazing and the facilities were to a really high standard. P.S. we found some great walks right from the front door in the ordinance survery map.

We'll be back, and recommending to family and friends.

What a fantastic place! The lodge is perfect, and has everything you need. The hot tub is fantastic, the perfect way to unwind. We visited Early Doors for a cider (or two!) and found everyone welcoming and friendly. Visited Cheddar, Glastonbury and Stonehenge - loved them all. The Gorge is absolutely stunning! We'll be back, and recommending to family and friends.

Lovely holiday through blue chip

We've just come back from a long weekend in Somerset and have to say that booking won blue chip was easy and a very pleasent experience. When my computer crashed midway through the booking, I called the number and had a lovely helpful lady finish the process for me. The property was finished to such a high standard and so clean We couldn't have been happier

All in all top notch!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your superb lodge. Our Cocker Spaniel Sam loved it especially being able to run off some energy in the orchard and making new doggy friends. Everything in the lodge has been finished to a high standard and all fiztures and fittings are of exceptional quality. Everything was spotless and all of the little extras like the welcome vbasket, dishwasher tablets and even the dog bowls had been thought through. Loved the hot tub! The Cider Barn 'Early Doors' was also a wonderfully friendly place, staff and locals alike all seemed to want to engage with visitors - the Draycott Blue Ploughmans was fab! Even the on site builders were courteous. All in all top notch!

Fabolous weekend break

Easy to find and nice peaceful location, with plenty to do or find in the vicinity. The hot tub was an added find and we made the most of this after a very busy Saturday, walking locally in the morning followed by lunch and shopping in Wells in the afternoon. Mike the site manager introduced himself and arranged for some logs for the wood burner, which we were keen to use. The cooking facilities were excellent, cannot think of anything further that was needed Would definitely recommend this holiday, in fact already have to several friends and will ensure this is on my list for a future visits, added advantage our dog Daisy can come too!

Wonderful holiday.

We had a wonderful time staying at Blackbird Lodge. The lodge has all that you could need for a holiday and was very comfortable. The hot tub was a fabulous addition especially after a long day out cycling and walking. The site is very quiet and small. Mike the owner is very friendly and helpful, and it was lovely having a "Local" just a little walk away. The area is beautiful with a lot to do. I will certainly recommend Blackbird Lodge to my family and friends and hope to return soon.

Wonderful break

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Blackbird Lodge in Cheddar. The accommodation was first class, the fixtures, furnishings, decor, tableware was all top notch - couldn't fault any of it. There was a lovely complimentary basket of treats to welcome us, Mike the site manager was very helpful and responsive with anything we needed. The location was perfect for us. Lovely walk into Cheddar up and down the hills through the picturesque setting, and after walking all day the soak in the wonderfully warm hot tub at our lodge was very welcomed. There is a cider barn on site, the staff and clientele are so friendly and welcoming, you can sit there in the evening as it's a perfect setting to watch the sun set. We will definitely return, we all loved it.
