The West Country region
There are pleasant parks and landscape gardens offering visitors the opportunity to see a variety of Italian and English gardens often attached to a magnificent manor house such as the house and gardens at Iford and Longleat. There are many places of historical and architectural interest in this region, such as Stonehenge and Avebury, where the ancient stones still stand as timeless monuments to the past.
The weather in general is mild as the hills offer some shelter from the wind. Bath's southerly position in Britain means summers are often warm up to 30 degrees, and winters generally not falling much below -2 degrees.
Bath has three main spas. The main historical bath is housed in the Roman Bath Museum which is open daily. The Cross Bath is now part of the main Thermae Spa where you can bathe, and now a new roof bathing pool is a magnificent opportunity to see views of roof tops and the famous Bath Abbey, whilst enjoying the warm waters of the Spa.
The elegant Bath stone houses in the centre of Bath offer a fantastic back-drop to some of the most beautiful architectural sites in the country. The Royal Crescent overlooking Royal Victoria Park and the 'Circus', a Georgian circular building, are famous landmarks both designed by John Wood.
The small cities of Wells and Salisbury and their stunning cathedrals are a short distance away.
The Bath International music and art festival in May is a 10 day event, its opening night being a huge celebration in the centre of Bath.
The Bath area is steeped in history, dating back prior to the Roman invasion when the several spas in the area were revered for their healing properties. Bath is in a valley surrounded by rolling hills, with the river Avon flowing through the centre of the town.

This was my third visit to Sharpstone studio, and having read the reviews on trip advisor (which were all positive) I was not surprised by the high standard of accommodation and the fabulous views.
It is the location that makes this place so special – sited on the edge of a village (Freshford) with all the peace and quiet you need, but within easy reach of Bath, with its wide range of fine dinning and top class arts and entertainments. Simply take a ten-minute stroll through the village to the railway station, (unchanged since the last century) and in another ten minutes you will be in the center of Bath ready for shopping and relaxing in cafes. Thermae Spa is definitely not to be missed. I loved the roof top pool experience. It was a pleasure of to return to Sharpstone studio a great home from home, and a good nights sleep in a warm comfortable bed makes this a memorable destination. In the morning you can follow any of the well-signed country paths (information provided) and be sure to stop off at the village cafe (staffed by volunteers) refreshments and a newspapers available.
I left this hidden gem refreshed and restored. What did I like least - having to leave!

"A beautifully equipped house in a calm and tranquil location"
This house is in a lovely location and is clean and well equipped with a restful feel to it. The views are wonderful with beautiful walks around it and a lovely local pub. It is close to Bath and other attractive towns and villages making it the perfect location. If you like music there is a piano and guitar in the cottage and a lovely sound system so you can plug your own ipod it. I was there on my own but it would be a great place for a couple just wanting to escape to come to.
