For domestic and international air travel, Bristol International Airport is only a 30-minute drive.
Bristol and Bath – The Perfect City Pairing
Only 13 miles apart, these cities’ differences make them equally fascinating places to discover. Bristol has an edgy independent spirit, vibrant colour, historic engineering prowess and a rich maritime history, in contrast to Bath’s ancient Roman roots, stunning Georgian architecture and literary connections.
Bristol’s city centre and Old City are bordered by distinct and diverse neighbourhoods including leafy Clifton Village with designer boutiques and the world-famous suspension bridge; arty Stokes Croft/Gloucester Road with its array of independent artisan shops and eateries; bohemian Old Market; and the buzzing Harbourside, boasting pop-up shops and dining at Wapping Wharf, museums, traditional pubs and Brunel’s restored SS Great Britain – the world’s first ocean liner.
A city spanning more than two millennia, Bath is a thriving tourist destination and World Heritage Site. Built by the Romans for pleasure and relaxation, it is still a destination for wellbeing today, thanks to its thermal hot springs. A compact city nestled in the Avon valley on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, it is famed for beautiful historic landmarks including Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent and the Roman Baths https://www.romanbaths.co.uk/. Check out its fine independent shops, plethora of restaurants and bars, theatre, diverse collection of museums and galleries and the sensational modern Thermae Bath Spa.
A Flavour of the West Country
Both Bristol and Bath are surrounded by glorious, unspoilt countryside. Three designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within easy striking distance, from The Wye Valley to The Cotswolds and The Mendip Hills.
Characterised by rolling hills and farmland, quaint towns and villages, plus stretches of rugged coastline, Somerset has something for everyone. There are heaps of places to discover, from Glastonbury, Watchet, Wells, Cheddar Village and Gorge, Frome and Bruton. Simply stroll, ramble, hike or bike around. Seek out refined dining, a traditional local pint of Somerset cider, or fresh produce from award-winning local sustainable suppliers.
We’ve a particular favourite near Bruton – The Newt in Somerset celebrated by The Times, The Guardian and many other hit lists as one of “the top places to visit in the UK” is a country estate with carefully thought-out gardens, farmland and a Georgian house at its core; visitors can enjoy a walk, eat out and even stay as lockdown rules ease.
