Best way to get to Bristol/Cleavdon from the airport?

We (family of 5)will be at Heathrow airport and need to get to Bristol/Cleavdon to visit friends. What is the best way to get there? Train, bus, rent a car? We will not need a car once we get there.
Thanks for all your help. You have no idea how much I value this website. It is so helpful.

I assume you mean the seaside town of Clevedon. There is no railway there, but buses go from Bristol.

There is a direct Heathrow-Bristol bus about every 1.5 to 2 hours.
Journey time about 2 hrs 10' depending on traffic.

You can find timetables and fares on
http://www.nationalexpress.com/neh.cfm

Alternatively you can go by bus to Reading, then train to Bristol.

Oops - posted before I finished.

Are you returning to Heathrow from Bristol?

A one-way car-hire each way would probably not be a big saving over a return coach fare.

Check National Express for fare details for 5 - probably about £100 return.

If you take the bus from LHR to Bristol, maybe your friends in Clevedon can pick you up there.

Or you can take a bus to Reading and then a train to Bristol.
