A county of rich farmland, gentle, rolling and wooded with huge views. It's a treasure-land of stately homes with lovely gardens and golden, sleepy hamstone villages. There are splendid hills with huge views for walking and cycling, and along one ridge a steam railway chugs to big beaches on the Bristol Channel coast. Bath is a special city, beautiful and historic.

First time that we have booked through you. We found the booking process very easy and staff where very helpful. As you name suggests 'Helpful Holidays'

Renting a property through Helpful Holidays is like having it chosen by a like-minded friend. You have a simple service done superbly well.
