Please check our gallery of photographs for interiors and exteriors of the house and garden
and additional photos of interesting places to visit in the region. The garden is secluded and leafy and on three levels, it includes dining furniture, a barbeque, a clay oven and a lawn.
The photos were mostly taken around Christmas, so should you want to exchange at that time, we can decorate the house in advance for you. The garden is usually much leafier and more colourful in summer! We have a brand-new central heating boiler, so you will be very cosy here in the winter.
We have a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer, dish washer, double oven, two fridges and freezer, use of wifi and a flat-screen cable TV with a supply of good quality DVDs.
Our cleaner comes once a week on Thursdays and will change beds and is happy to do any ironing.
The beds are all very comfortable and there are two dining rooms, a library and large drawing room with grand piano. We have three Victorian fire-places and the house is both elegant and cosy.
We are only 15 miles from the Georgian City of Bath, 90 minutes from London by train and an hour from many beautiful landscapes. For example, the Dorset, Devon and Cornish Coasts and the Gower peninsula and Welsh mountains are all located in the South West and neighbouring Wales, with Bristol and Cardiff (home to a fabulous new opera house) as it's two main cultural centres.
In addition we have a very smart Saab convertible in which to visit these places in our region.
We are only approximately one hour away from many beautiful Cotswold villages, 15th Century castles and numerous National Trust Stately Homes. This is a perfect base from which to see the best parts of England, and Wales. Although our local Bristol airport will fly you to Scotland and many, many European destinations including Paris France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Turkey.
If you want to stay in we have a large collection of quality DVDs to choose from, or a large choice of music. We are also half an hour's drive away from Glastonbury and the 17th century stately home and film location, Dyrham Park. 15th century Corfe Castle and Dunster Castle are the same distance away. This is a truly beautiful, cultural and urbane part of England and many Londoner's are now choosing to live here.
The house, because of its decor and contents, would not, I'm afraid, be very relaxing for the parents of teenagers and children.

We would prefer to travel outside of school vacations if possible, which is why a free-lance, childless or retired couple would fit in with our needs best of all.Open to any dates
Although we have listed these destinations, we are open to any suggestions so don't let these above put you off contacting us. We enjoy beautiful coastal scenery and beach houses, walking in the hills, good wine and food and cultural city-centred holidays.
We have a gentle, adorable and independent black and white cat (short-haired) named Toby who has his own cat-flap into our lovely garden and only needs feeding twice a day. We are very happy to look after a similarly independent animal. Should you wish to overnight in London or Paris for example, there is a trusted family member who can feed the cat whilst you're away.
