Lympsham is a rural village in Somerset, moments from the coast and the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the 13th century, the village was known as ‘Lymplesham’ which meant ‘a good place to live’, and it remains a peaceful, friendly community surrounded by some of the region’s most beautiful countryside. Lympsham holiday cottages are well-positioned for enjoying some of the Southwest’s top attractions. The Mendip Hills cover 77 miles of limestone hills, ash-maple woodlands and grasslands. There are several established paths throughout the hills, which overlook the Somerset Levels, the Chew Valley and the Avon. Lympsham is a small community with around 800 residents, with a small shop, a post office and The Sports and Social Club, which has a bar open in the evenings for members and guests.
The Retreat near the village of Lympsham, Somerset, sits on the edge of the Mendip Hills, a peaceful countryside cottage located on a rural 300-year-old property featuring open plan kitchen and dining area with quartz worktops and integrated appliances, four cosy bedrooms, and wood-burning stove.
