Fancy A Holiday Down At Cleeve House? Here’s What You Can Do In The Area

As restrictions relax across the United Kingdom, many of us will be planning our holidays and staycations. We want to encourage our membership to make use of our stunning property which resides in the heart of the British countryside. Here is what you can get up to in the areas surrounding Cleeve House.

Cleeve House is a B&B [bed and breakfast] when it is not being used for large scale events and workshops. The countryside location makes it the ideal place to get away from the city and enjoy the British countryside, with the B&B having already hosted a couple of famous faces!  

The following are activities you can get up to (and places you can visit) if you ever decide to book a room at Cleeve:

Bath

As expected from a place called Bath, the city is famous for its water, particularly the natural hot spring water. The Roman Baths are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Britain, with the Great Bath, inside the Roman Temple being the stand out attraction.

While you won’t be able to take a dip in the Roman Baths, you can visit the Thermae Bath Spa rooftop pool for a relaxing afternoon.

As well as its Roman Baths, the city is most famous for its Georgian crescents. The Royal Crescent is recognisable from various period dramas but even for those not interested in television, the Royal Victoria Park has views anyone can appreciate.

Bath has a large number of museums, from the Fashion Museum, which features more than 100,000 pieces of clothing and footwear, to the American Museum, which is dedicated to American folk and decorative art. There is even The Herschel Museum of Astronomy where William Herschel first spotted Uranus.

Or why not take a boat trip along the River Avon? Bath City Boat Trips have 55-minute tours which include full commentary.

Bristol

Bristol is home to three cutting-edge art galleries. First, you have Centrespace which hosts works from up-and-coming artists while RWA has striking sculptures and floor-to-ceiling art. On the other hand, Arnolfini offers boundary-pushing installations for those looking for something different.

Need a green fix and some fresh air? Why not get lost in the Downs? Stretching from Whiteladies Road all the way to the Suspension Bridge, is a massive open green space called the Downs. The south-west corner is the ideal spot to admire great views of the Avon Gorge and Suspension Bridge.

Bristol is known as Britain’s first “cycling city” so grab (or rent) a bike and head towards the open spaces and wooded trails of Ashton Court, or cycle out to the picturesque Snuff Mills.

Swindon

Fancy a leisurely stroll? Take a visit to Coate Water Country Park for large bodies of water and areas of natural wildlife. Alternatively, you could visit Lydiard Park if you are more interested in historic sites.

Or maybe you would like to do some shopping? Then Swindon Designer Outlet has you covered (only £1 parking for the whole day!). The shopping centre is well laid-out with various architectural features and great places to grab a meal.

One of the most famous points of interest around Swindon is The Magic Roundabout. It is a ring junction which consists of five mini-roundabouts arranged in a circle. Often referred to as one of the most complex rotaries in the world, if you are in the area, why not swing by?

Furthermore, for those interested in theatre, Shakespeare LIVE will be performing “The Winter’s Tale” at Cleeve House from 5th – 10th July 2021. For those interested, please visit: https://www.shakespearelive.com/upcoming-events
