A fantastic location. An historic house with a wealth of associations. Dating from c. 1640, the house was modernised in 1676 and then again in 1723.
We have been here since 1999. A great stepping off point, whether you are going to London, The Cotswolds, Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham etc. We are very near to the Motorway network, 2 Railway Stations (Bristol Temple Meads or Bristol Parkway), Bristol Airport, Coach station in Bristol. Locally there are quality Pubs, Indian and Chinese eateries.
The Annexe is a recently converted ex-agricultural building, in other lives it has been used for animal shelter, pigs, as a hay barn and to keep chickens at night.
It is cosy, warm and inviting space. With underfloor heating, quality King Sized double bed, Wet Room, fully fitted Kitchen and large Lounge. TV'
s in both the Lounge and Bedroom.
Off street parking through farm gate. We will explain where to park as this is a shared area and we want to make sure we do not block our neighbour's access.

The walls of these old buildings are so thick that broadband is an impossibility, we do have available broadband in our house, which guests are most welcome to use. Bristol has now been ranked no. 4 in the world for inspiring cities:
