Radstock 2.7 miles.
This well-appointed cottage is situated in the beautiful and peaceful grounds of Ammerdown Park, a short distance from the centre of Radstock.
The cottage offers ample family accommodation and makes an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.
With a bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite and separate shower room, the accommodation is suited for those with limited mobility.
There is a lovely kitchen with a dining area which leads through to a comfortable sitting area which has a double sofa bed for extra flexibility with the sleeping arrangements.
Completing this floor is the handy utility room which houses the laundry facilities.
Upstairs are the remaining three bedrooms, which also have en-suites and enjoy views out to the centre's amazing landscaped gardens and walled orchard.
The cottage has its own private patio area where you can dine alfresco with the accompaniment of bird song and afterwards why not wander the grounds.
During the afternoon guests also have access to the shared outdoor heated swimming pool which is perfect for sunny days and keeping the children entertained.
If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful setting you will find plenty of choices for days out in the area.
Just ten miles away lies the historic city of Bath, a world heritage site, with its Roman Baths, spa, stunning Georgian buildings, parks, gardens, museums, theatres and restaurants.
A short drive across the beautiful Mendip Hills will take you to the Bishop’s Palace and the uniquely scissor-vaulted cathedral in the city of Wells.
Bradford-on-Avon (sometimes called ‘miniature Bath’) and the Kennet and Avon Canal are within easy reach as too are a number of National Trust and English Heritage properties, including Stonehenge, Stourhead House and Gardens, Lacock and Avebury.
If you are looking for something closer to the cottage, there are heritage railways at Midsomer Norton, home of the Somerset & Dorset Heritage Railway Trust, and Cranmore, home of the East Mendip Railway, plus Radstock Museum, the nursery rhyme villages of Kilmersdon (Jack and Jill) and Mells (Little Jack Horner).
Closer still, you can simply wallow in the tranquillity of Ammerdown.
