Tides Reach is a beautiful large group holiday house in Somerset, eclectic and spacious, and filled with a very unique light thanks to its fantastic setting at the edge of the Severn estuary in Portishead. The views are phenomenal, stretching right over to the Black Mountains in Wales, the tides rush in and rush out, ships go by. 4 storeys high, the house sleeps 15 guests in 7 bedrooms; there’s a games room and several spaces where you can come together to catch up, maybe to celebrate a special occasion. Outside, the sea wall runs along the edge of the garden, there’s a hot tub and a decking area for shoreside barbecues.

There’s every reason why you’ll be perfectly content to while away every minute of your large group holiday or short break right here at Tides Reach, but maybe go for a wander because you don’t need to go far here to find a few very pleasant surprises. Stroll into Portishead, have a look round the shops, stop for lunch at one of the restaurants overlooking the fashionable marina, take the kids crabbing. Have an amble around the Lake Grounds, hire rowing boats if its summer, pack your swimsuits and head to the Lido. Spend a couple of hours at Sugar Loaf Beach, put your sensible shoes on and take a walk up over the coast path or out to Battery Point.

If a day out appeals, Bristol is so easy to get to. Spend time exploring this upbeat city with its vintage markets, modern shopping centres, and vibrant harbourside; discover the arts quarter at Christmas Steps, the elegant boutiques at Clifton Village, walk across the famous suspension bridge, go for a wander on Clifton Downs. Indulge in some family fun at Bristol Aquarium or onboard Brunel’s flagship, SS Great Britain, climb the Cabot Tower.

You can be in Bath in an hour and have whole day getting to know this beautiful city where a visit to the Roman Baths is a must. See the Royal Crescent, take a tour of the Abbey tower, discover the many museums and galleries. Head to Sally Lunn’s for a famous Bath Bun, or for something completely different, go paddleboarding down the River Avon.

With good access to the M5 from Portishead, there are countless places to see; take the little ones to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm or the Bristol Zoo Project, spend a day in the great outdoors of the rugged Mendip Hills, soak up the history and charm of Tyntesfield. Wherever you go, whatever you do, back at Tides Reach you can put your feet up, be together and watch the sunset over the estuary. This is a house to unwind in, a house to enjoy, a house you won’t ever forget. Book a stay today!
