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.

We had a very good experience. Very good communication, beautiful property and everything as expected.
