The cottage is in a small village & on a bus route. One great pub in walking distance, & a cafe/bistro (Hartleys) just 1 mile for an amazing gastro treat. We welcome couples, familes and friends. Children love it & will want to return, in fact we get many return bookings. Try the Spindle Quiz can you find the clues? Relax in our pretty garden.
For night life Bath & Bristol are within easy reach with multi plex cinemas, theatres & clubs. Plenty of wonderful walks, & many N.T. properties near by also Longlete is very popular for all ages as is Wells the smallest city in England. Lots of quirky places to see in Glastonbury. Visit the caves at Wookey Hole & Cheddar. We are just 5 miles from The Bath & West show ground. After a busy day our lovely cottage to come home to & relax. Magic
