Chipping Sodbury, Bristol, UK: We welcome guests to our spacious, detached, rural home, set in beautiful countryside, on the edge of the Cotswolds. The original house was a mill dating back to the 16th century. A 10 minute walk down a country lane from our home leads to an ancient woodland, with its peaceful walking trails, abundant with plants and bursting with wildlife. A hidden corner waiting to be explored. The cities of Bath and Bristol are within easy driving distance as are many picutresque Cotswold villages
