Spring House - Washwell, Box, Nr Bath, Wiltshire, England - Sleeps 16

Spring House

Spring House can accommodate large groups of up to sixteen guests in six bedrooms and is a beautifully presented large holiday home with an outdoor swimming pool that is ideal for a reunion of friends, family get together or as a venue to celebrate a special occasion. Nestling amongst eight acres of grounds, this detached house dates back some two hundred years in certain parts and has been transformed into modern stylish self-catering accommodation with a subtle holiday theme running throughout.

Conveniently placed, Spring House is within easy driving distance of the beautiful Roman City of Bath and nestles within Washwell, a peaceful hamlet on the outskirts of the Wiltshire village of Box. With large grounds, an outdoor heated swimming pool and miles of footpaths from the front door, you may find it hard to leave the peaceful setting of Spring House but if you do, you are spoilt for choice with great days out. Take the little ones to Wookey Hole Caves to discover the underworld or Longleat for a day with the animals. You can even visit the country's most famous landmark, Stone Henge or explore the pretty villages and ancient towns of the Cotswolds. For the more active, there are also plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy including horse riding, cycling, walking and water sports.

Bath with its stunning Georgian architecture offers a whole host of attractions from interesting museums, to wonderful shops and boutiques to browse. Possibly the most iconic being the Roman Baths which are a must to visit. Spend the day (or night) relaxing at the Thermae Bath Spa where you can indulge in treatments or swim in the warm waters whilst enjoying the views over the city. Whatever the time of year, Bath offers a packed events calendar with festivals to enjoy and a host of fantastic restaurants to cater for every taste and every occasion. For those who like to be active, take in the cities historic sights and heritage from the waters edge, either by enjoying an afternoon punting or by hiring a rowing boat - a really fun way of escaping the crowds and seeing the sights!

Alternatively, just relax and enjoy the lovely setting and facilities that the Spring House has to offer you and your party.
