The West Country / Somerset region
If you've never been to the West Country, you're in for a treat. With its beautiful countryside, charming villages, rich history and its unique culture (from Jane Austen to Glastonbury!), there truly is something for everyone.
Weston Village makes an excellent base for exploring not only the beautiful city of Bath, but the wider delights of the West Country and, if you are a keen walker, it is located directly on the Cotswold Way with its wonderful countryside, picturesque villages and rich history.
Nestled centrally within this region, Bath makes the perfect base from which to explore this area. The historical sites of Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, and Wells Cathedral are all within easy reach, as are the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, Cheddar Gorge and the Olde Worlde Cotswold Villages of Lacock and Castle Combe, for a real taste of the English Countryside .
The Bath / Central Bath area
There is so much to do in Bath;
Why not start with a bit of culture? A visit the world-famous Roman Baths and sample the medicinal spa water, and if this leaves a peculiar taste in your mouth, the magnificent cream teas served in the elegant Pump Rooms will soon remedy this! This can then be walked off on a tour through the awesome Bath Abbey, where a climb up its wondrous tower will reward you with fantastic panoramic views of the city, including the award-winning Bath Thermae Spa. But before taking a plunge into its famous open-roof hot-bath or fragrant steam-rooms, why not take the opportunity to visit one of the many museums on offer including the Jane Austen Centre, Holburne and Herschel Museums.
Bath is well known for its calendar of festivals including the Literature Festival, Music Festival, Taste of Bath, Jane Austen Festival, Mozartfest, the Cider Festival and the Christmas market. The Theatre Royal is host to many plays prior to their run in London’s West End.
If shopping is your vice, the newly opened Southgate Centre is home to many plush names and complements the more unique boutiques and independent stores to be found in the arcades and lanes distinct to Georgian Bath.
Foodies will be spoiled for choice with the many eateries on offer, from romantic side-street bistros to the ever popular Jamie Oliver’s, you need to loosen your belt by the time you leave.
The beautiful Cotswold Way, recently designated a National Trail in recognition of its unique qualities, provides an alternative to the bustle of the city centre, with many beautiful old churches and friendly pubs along the way.
Attractions further afield include Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury, Cheddar gorge, the Stunning Westonbirt Arboretum and the fabulous Longleat Park (Home to the Marquis of Bath), as well as many charming Cotswold Villages such as Lacock (famous for the Harry Potter films, amongst others) and Castle Combe.
And if shopping really is your thing, Cabot Circus in Bristol is only a short trip away ………

My husband, daughter (16 months) and I stayed at the Apple House for a bit over a month during Aug-Sept 2012.
Pros of the house: 1) The house, even though not very big, is very well planned. Despite the fact that there is no door separating the bedroom from the rest of the house (which is located upstairs together with the bathroom, and the living-room with the kitchenette - downstairs), my husband and I were able to talk and cook dinners downstairs, while our daughter was fast asleep upstairs. 2) The furniture is of high quality - modern, new - the type that I would want to have myself, in my own house. 3) Amazingly powerful shower. 4) Comfortable beds, with good quality mattresses, and very luxurious, big bath towels. 5) The house is located right next to the Cotswolds Way walk, which you'll be rewarded with plenty of breathtakingly beautiful views once you're up on the hill. 6) Last, but not least, this family is just unbelievably friendly, helpful and kind! You'll receive all kinds of helpful information and be given all sorts of tips of where to go in and around Bath.
Cons of the house (all minor): 1) The house is located ca. 30-40 minutes walk from the center of Bath. The bus stop is literally on the door step, but be prepared to pay more than £4 for a day pass ticket per adult (babies free). 2) The path leading to the house is of pebbles, which is not a big deal when you don't have a stroller, but can be a bit heavy, although manageable, if you do - requires dragging or lifting, rather than pushing. 3) No freezer. 4) The flat top stove didn't work well when you'd spill liquid (or it would boil over). It would stop cooking and showed an 'error' message, that would disappear within a few minutes, but in the meantime, no more heat. 5) The neighbors' dogs were barking pretty much every time my daughter and I were out and about. They can't get to you as there is a fence, but the noise from the noisy chihuahua ("Coco") is sometimes overwhelming.
All in all, though, the above points were relatively minor. It was a very good house to stay in, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Bath. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

The cottage is gorgeous, everything is taken care in great detail. The hosts are extremely friendly and have thought of every detail to make your stay in Apple House very nice. The house is within the property of the owners but privacy and independence are guaranteed.

What a find - delightful, compact holiday rental, owned by a fantastic family. Stuart and Rachel were extremely friendly and tried to make our stay a great holiday. The house was pristine and provided all we would need for our week in Bath. We enjoyed the walk into town through Royal Victoria Park (about 35 mins) and that the local shops were handy too. As a young family, Bath had lots to offer us so we didn't need the car every day, therefore, great to have somewhere to park the car. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
