A spacious en-suite bathroom with luxurious ball and claw roll top bath and walk in shower provide a calm and relaxing space to unwind.

The picturesque Somerset village of Oakhill is approximately 14 miles south of the City of Bath and approximately 6 miles from Wells. The village has a thriving community and includes The Oakhill Inn, which is a very popular gastro pub, an highly rated doctors’ surgery and a primary school. There is an excellent village shop/Post Office in the neighbouring village of Gurney Slade where you can buy your groceries and newspapers. The fashionable market town of Frome is one of the South West's leading market towns and was recently featured in the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Somerset. It has become a "foodie hipster haven" due to the influx of young families, with St Catherine's Hill at the centre of the artisan quarter. The town has a comprehensive choice of retail outlets and all the usual amenities. Bruton is now well known for the award winning “At the Chapel” restaurant and the Hauser & Wirth gallery are a short drive away as is, Babington House and private members club (Soho House’s country mansion). Other recreational pursuits such as golf, racing, shooting and fishing are catered for within easy distance.

Oakhill is well located for both Bristol (18 miles) and Bath (14 miles) with excellent access to the M4/M5 and mainline stations, and A303 to Devon and Cornwall.
