Things to See & Do
Are you looking for things to see and do while you stay with us?
We are the perfect place to stay if you enjoy a city break but want to relax in leafy countryside after a hard day’s site seeing! We are located 1.5 miles from the M4/M5 interchange with brilliant access into Bristol, Bath, the Cotswolds & South Wales.
It is 15 minutes to Bristol Parkway train station with direct links to London, Birmingham, Cardiff & Devon/Cornwall & the Park and Ride for both Bristol and Bath are very easy to drive to. We are 20 minutes from the centre of Bristol & 15 minutes from a large regional out of town shopping centre called The Mall. If you fancy a day at the beach then why not head to The Gower Peninsula or for something more sedate the Victorian seaside town of Clevedon has an original pier & sea water swimming lake.
If your here for a short break, a family holiday or celebrating a special event or maybe just trying something new, here are our recommendations for you.
