Noah's Ark Zoo Farm.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is a family-owned zoo set on a working farm in 100 acres of beautiful, peaceful North Somerset countryside and is located just 1.5 miles from The Old Farmhouse. When Noah’s Ark first opened as a farm visitor centre in 1999, visitors were able to get hands-on with bottle-feeding lambs and could get close to both farm animals and exotic animals such as llamas, camels and wallabies.

Today the zoo is one of the most popular attractions in Somerset, and has a large and exciting animal collection of over one hundred species, including African elephants, giraffes, lions, a tiger, rhinos and spectacled bears.

Tyntesfield is an ornate Victorian Gothic Revival house owned by the National Trust with extensive gardens and park land, and is a stone’s throw from The Old Farmhouse. The house was originally built as a family home and it showcases the ordinary and extraordinary lives and possessions of four generations of the Gibbs family.

The garden and estate balance faded beauty and function with an abundance of nature; celebrated in ornate Gothic carvings that decorate the house. Flower filled terraces, an empty lake, woodland, champion trees and a productive kitchen garden give further opportunities for exploration.

Backwell Playhouse.

Backwell Playhouse is a charming, intimate theatre just over a mile from The Old Farmhouse, which is well worth a visit.

It boasts a strong and talented in-house theatre company and a thriving film club, as well as visiting companies and classes, all nestled in the heart of Backwell. The venue is a unique space, with just 99 seats facing an open and flexible performance area, and has been used for a whole variety of plays, dance recitals, music performances, films and presentations.

Clevedon Pier

Just a 20 minute drive from our lovely pub is the famous Clevedon Pier, which was designated as a Grade 1 listed building in 2001. The pier, which is 312 metres long, was built during the 1860s to attract tourists and to provide a ferry port for rail passengers to South Wales.

Two of the pier’s spans collapsed during stress testing in 1970 and demolition was proposed, but local fund raising and heritage grants allowed the pier to be restored and reassembled. Ten years later it was awarded the ‘Pier of the Year’ by the National Piers Society.
