The property

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.

About the location

RADSTOCK

Bath 9 miles; Bristol 16 miles.

The former coal-mining town of Radstock is a fantastic location filled with places of historic interest and surrounded by greenery. The Radstock Museum is an interesting day out with plenty of history about the area and the industrial past of the town. Two cycle routes run from the town and open up the surrounding wider countryside with routes running from Bath through to Frome. For walkers there are a number of options including the Miners and Black Mountain Trails where there is some stunning scenery on offer. The fantastic Georgian city of Bath is just 9 miles away and no matter the time of year you visit, you are likely to find events catering for all tastes, from the well-loved Christmas market to music, food and cultural festivals and world-class theatre productions on offer at the Theatre Royal. The streets are lined with every kind of restaurant and the wide range of quality bars and shops are sure to tempt. The stunning architecture of Georgian terraces are a joy to behold, whilst a visit to the celebrated Roman Baths and wonderful abbey are a must. This is a fantastic location for a varied holiday.
