Nestling in the western corner of Wiltshire, Bradford is only 8 miles from the World Heritage City of Bath.One of the most compelling features about Bradford is its unique position on the edge of the Cotswolds facing the River Avon. The ancient bridge in the centre of the town remains its natural focus and still retains two of its original 13th-century arches.

Many of these features - earthworks, burial mounds and other circular ‘henge’ monuments - are accessible by road or public footpath. Stonehenge’s orientation on the rising and setting sun has always been one of its remarkable features. Whether this was simply because the builders came from a sun-worshipping culture, or because - as some scholars believe - the circle and its banks were part of a huge astronomical calendar, remains a mystery. To complete your journey, visit the superb gift shop and the Stonehenge Cafe. Audio tour available in ten languages; easy disabled access; hearing loop and Braille guide available.

Bath

Nourished by natural hot springs, Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions.Bath is a world-class destination, rich in Roman and Georgian heritage. Nestling in a sheltered valley, surrounded like Rome by seven wooded hills and nourished by Britain's only natural hot springs, Bath has been luring visitors with its obvious charms for well over 2000 years.An exquisite Georgian city grew from Bath's ancient roots. The Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pump Room and Pulteney Bridge are among the finest architectural treasures in the world. Indeed, the entire city has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.This comfortably sized city is packed with places to visit. Bath's rich diversity of museums, galleries, gardens and attractions including the Roman Baths and 15th-century Bath Abbey are all within easy walking distance of each other. The Roman Baths is one of Europe's finest ancient monuments, walk where Romans walked on ancient stone pavements and imagine the grandeur of their town of Aquae Sulis centred on the natural hot springs. Bath's status as a world-class city is further enhanced by the remarkable Thermae Bath Spa. The revival of this 2,000-year old tradition means that Bath is a fully fledged spa city once again.Bath's impeccable historic credentials don't tell the full story. Today, more so than ever, it's a thriving, vibrant city. Nineteenth-century Georgian gaiety has been replaced by a decidedly 21st-century cosmopolitan buzz. Bath offers an enviable lifestyle, with a year-round calendar of festivals, theatrical, musical and sporting events. It's a lively scene, with over 150 restaurants and traditional pubs scattered among some of the best quality independent shops in Britain.

“Wonderful surroundings and a fabulous stay!”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2013

Our stay at Berkley House was simply fantastic. Set in magnificent countryside, this beautiful house is so well equiped for all types of visitors and the owners are on hand to help in every way possible should you need. There is so much space, even at full capacity you can really relax and enjoy the house as if it were your own! Ideally situated close to Bath and within walking distance of a lovely canal for a nice walk it really is perfect.

“Lovely warm welcoming home”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2013

A lovely home from home, perfectly set up to enjoy the countryside. Comfortable beds and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. We particularly enjoyed the kitchen and dining room in the conservatory which was both cosy and elegant. Big log fires and spacious bedrooms with good bed linen, nice pillows and delightful bathroom with steamroom and double shower. Really well furnished with style and love.
