About our home

Our detached family home is a large stone cottage with parts dating back to the 1750s. The house is in the village of Chew Stoke in Somerset 400 yards from Chew Valley Lake. The village is just 12 miles from the historic cities of Bath, 8 miles from Bristol and 11 to Wells and 4 miles from the Mendip hills an area of outstanding natural beauty.

London can be reached in under two hours by road, less by train from either Bristol or Bath. Devon is an hour away by car.

The house has a large kitchen diner, a dining room, a family lounge and a TV room plus a utility room. There are four bedrooms (one double) two single, one spare bedroom that has a single futon bed and will take several mattresses and there is a sofa bed in the lounge. There are three bathrooms. It is a well loved family home.

The old stone solid walls of the original house keep us warm in winter and cool in the summer.

Our rear garden is enclosed and private, mainly laid to grass with mature trees and shrubs and patio area.
