It is just 16 miles east of the centre of the world heritage site of Bath, 7 miles west of the market town of Devizes and just 5 miles from both Trowbridge andWestbury.
These towns offer a range of comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities including a new multiplex cinema at Trowbridge, supermarkets such as Waitrose and Sainsbury in Melksham and a bustling weekly produce and antiques market in Devizes.
Locally there are some very pleasant village pubs in the nearby villages of Steeple Ashton, Semington and Bulkington. There are mainline stations at Westbury (5 miles) and Chippenham (13 miles) running regular trains to London (Paddington is just over an hour away). The area is ideally situated for a range of leisure pursuits including walking, riding and cycling.
