Clifton Village is another foodie hot-spot where you’ll find a wide choice of intimate, independent restaurants, such as Fishers fish restaurant and modern Italian Prosecco, an elegant dining room serving contemporary-style Italian dishes.

If you want to experience some of the most cutting-edge cooking the city has to offer, make a trip to Westbury-on-Trym, just a few miles from the city centre. Here you can sample inventive gastronomy at Casamia, a Michelin star restaurant inspired by the haute cuisine of chefs such as Heston Blumenthal and Ferran Adria.

After-dark drinking haunts range from the cluster of cosy pubs around Cotham and Clifton to sophisticated cocktail lounges and members’ clubs –try Goldbrick House for the city’s most imaginative cocktail lists.

HISTORY & CULTURE
Bristol can boast some impressive historical landmarks, too, in the shape Brunel’s awe-inspiring Clifton Suspension Bridge and his beautifully restored steamship, the SS Great Britain.

For contemporary art don’t miss the achingly hip Arnolfini, while just across the river you’ll find the Watershed, one of the city’s major cultural hotspots where you can catch indie and art-house films, see an exhibition or grab a drink overlooking the docks.

The city’s major theatres and concert halls include the Bristol Old Vic, the Colston Hall and the Tobacco Factory, while more mainstream touring productions are on offer at the Bristol Hippodrome.

BATH (30 minutes’ drive)

SHOPPING
Discover the quaint villages, peaceful countryside and traditional pubs that characterise the surrounding region or take a drive a little further afield to picturesque Cotswold villages and bustling market towns.

Experience the unique ambience of Bristol, where you’ll find a rich cultural landscape that takes in everything from Banksy’s world-famous street art to the industrial heritage of Brunel, eclectic shopping to Georgian architecture.

Bath is a shopper’s paradise, whether you’re into designer fashion, high street brands or antiques. The modern
SouthGate quarter boasts over 55 high-street stores and restaurants, including big names such as Apple Store, Superdry, Kurt Geiger and Topshop. For a mix of designer shopping, homewares, cafes and restaurants head to Milsom Place where you’ll find retailers including Cath Kidston and Ted Baker, plus a bustling Jamie’s Italian. For something totally different try the atmospheric The Corridor, a covered colonnade packed with quirky independent shops selling everything from homemade fudge to designer jeans.

But there’s much more to Bath – a stroll along any of its side streets and lanes will reveal some lovely artisan producers, handmade jewellery shops, and interesting antique showrooms, packed with unusual, quirky pieces.

EATING
Bath has a limitless array of eating options, from the very formal to the casual, as well as some excellent gastro pubs and bars. The locally brewed Bath Ales can be sampled at pubs across the city, while there are a number of critically acclaimed restaurants to try, too, from the Michelin starred The Bath Priory to nationally renowned vegetarian restaurant Demuths. There are also plenty of well-known chain restaurants to choose from, as well as quaint tea shops and speciality stores – don’t miss a trip to The Real Italian Ice Cream Company for the best ice cream this side of Rome, or sample an authentic Bath bun at Sally Lunn’s world-famous tea shop.

The American Museum at nearby Claverton Manor makes for an interesting visit, or you could hire a bike and explore the gorgeous scenery along the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath.

OUTLET SHOPPING
If outlet shopping is your thing, make a trip to Gloucester Quays, around 45 minutes away. This expansive development is the perfect place to track down a bargain or two and features stores including LK Bennett, Calvin Klein, The White Company, Le Creuset and Nike, as well as eating options such as Costa Coffee and Pizza Express.

GOLF
The cottage is close to one of the region’s premier golf clubs – The Kendleshire – so you could not be better situated. Kendleshire’s greens have water on many of the holes, offering an added challenge for golf buffs. The number of holes at the Kendleshire allows you to play three different courses – combined that makes no less that 54 holes!

Of course, no trip to the golf club is complete without a stop at the club house and Kendleshire’s has all the comforts you’d expect from a top club, plus a sunny terrace overlooking the 18th green.

In addition to a Kendleshire, you can see what other local courses have to offer. You can combine a round at Kendleshire with a trip to The Player’s Club, located 7 miles away, or Cumberwell Park, situated just outside Bath.
