Our Neighbourhood

We live in a quiet hamlet (small village) adjoining a larger village with local shop, post office, newsagents, two pubs, church, hairdressers and flower shop.
There are two childrens play areas and a tennis court/football and basket ball court in the village. There are many footpaths with fantastic walks in the countryside including woodland and a small lake starting from the village and from the house. The walk to the village takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
Lucknam Park Hotel is just across the road from our hamlet and you can walk in the grounds. They also have a spa which is open to the public.
There are many country pubs just a short drive away and a large number of restaurants, coffee shops and bars in the City of Bath 20 minutes drive away. Bath is an historic roman and spa City. There are many museums, galleries, shops and places to visit.  The City of Bristol is about 30 minutes away.
The area is the South West of England in the Cotswolds and has many National Trust properties and gardens to visit.
Bath also has a lovely central park with a large play area for children.
Other small towns within easy reach are Malmesbury, Cirencester, Marlborough, Lacock and Bradford on Avon with their picturesque stone cottages and interesting and unusual shops.
