Where is it?
We are within a fiffteen minute walk from the stunning city of Bath and only a five minute walk to the surrounding Somerset countryside. We have lovely and helpful neighbours - there is a family with two little girls living a couple of houses away: they loved playing with the children from our last home exchange - and our neighbourhood is friendly and peaceful and very quiet! There is a regular bus service into Bath within a minute's walk from the house.
Bath boasts amazing architecture, big parks and play areas, a world famous Spa and ancient Roman baths: it is an easy city to walk around and is filled with excellent fashion outlets, fine dining, restaurants and pubs.
You can hire bicycles or take a barge along the local canal ways. There are theatre and arts&crafts workshops running all summer long for children all ages. Bath is also the birthplace and inspiration for Jane Austen, with many references made to places here in her writing.
Stonehenge, Wells Cathedral, the City of Bristol and Cheddar Gorge for climbing and its famous cheddar cheese are a short drive away and there is a good train service from Bath.
London, our vibrant capital, is only eighty minutes away by train.
Wales and the Brecon Becons for hiking are worth an easy day trip from our house.
You can also go hot air ballooning over the city sights and out over the breathtaking Somerset and Wiltshire countryside.
