Holiday Rental House
A fabulous place to stay in a restored old Georgian coaching inn (with older parts) on the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. Stylish and quirky, with contemporary art and fittings as well as vintage and antique furnishings, the house accommodates at least 9 people (with space for more in sofa beds at a nominal charge). A great choice for larger groups, though we are totally flexible, and can accommodate individuals or couples by negotiation on a B&B basis. The house, in England's smallest town (the lovely Axbridge - more like a village) also incorporates the Roxy, one of England's smallest cinemas, which is also available for guests. It's particularly suitable for groups of different ages and interests.

The house, in England's smallest town (the lovely Axbridge - more like a village) also incorporates the Roxy, one of England's smallest cinemas, which is also available for guests. It's particularly suitable for groups of different ages and interests. We have a pool table and the cinema (with high definition projection - it also connects to games consoles), and the area is full of interest and amenity - from the Mendip Hills just behind the house to the Somerset levels in front. We are 2 miles from Cheddar and its gorge and caves, 20 minutes from the seaside to the west or the beautiful city of Wells to the east with its magnificent cathedral. You can see Glastonbury Tor from the top of the house or the charming walled garden. There is a courtyard which is great for summer barbeques and eating alfresco. There's also a library with 4000 books to browse (and borrow!), and both the library, living room and even the bathroom have open fires. Axbridge itself is a lovely place - a thriving small community with all the necessary services - with its pubs, tea house, chemist and tiny museum. Visitors can use the public amenities like the playground and football field all within a 5 minute walk, and there is a farmer's market on the first Saturday of each month. The Roxy cinema is open to the public in UK term times on most Fridays, but is mostly otherwise available. Choose a film from our library or bring your own DVDs or Blu Ray films to watch. It has a charming art deco foyer, has original seats and fittings, and a 1950's cocktail bar. There are also sometimes children's parties there - but there's always availability for private use by our guests. We reserve the cinema for you for the whole of Saturday if you are a weekend guest. We have loads of 5* reviews on our Airbnb site, so check those out! Number 36 and the Roxy were featured on Kirstie Allsopp's 'Fill Your House For Free' in 2014 and in Homes & Antiques magazine in March 2013.More

We booked to stay at the house ("Number 36 and The Roxy") and had use of the cinema included in our rental. Brilliant community cinema run by passionate and knowledgeable people. Juliet was absolutely amazing, she waited up for us for a late check-in, showed...More

Interaction with guests
We are in an adjoining flat, though will not intrude. We can be reached if needed. The house is large and because of the cinema etc we give a 15 minute tour rather than just hand over the keys. If we are away, we assign a neighbour who knows the house well to help you if any issues arise.
