Stanton Drew is located just to the south of the road that runs between the villages of Pensford and Chew Magna on the B3130. The Bath & North East Somerset village is famous for its prehistoric Stone Circles, the largest being the Great Circle consisting of the second largest Stone Circle in Britain (after Avebury). The village also has a range of listed buildings dating from the 13th to 15th centuries. The Parish of Stanton Drew has about 800 people and includes a primary school, local Inn, the Church of St Mary the Virgin and village hall where there is a venue for Mothers and Toddler Groups and Pre-School along with various activities. The area that surrounds the village has several dairy and arable farms and many people commute to Bristol and Bath. The popular Chew Valley Secondary School is located between Chew Magna and Chew Stoke and is served by a daily school bus.
Chew Valley is unique in the West Country, comprising some thirty five thousand acres of unspoilt and protected countryside which occupies the middle ground of the Bath, Bristol and Wells triangle. Dominating the scene are the Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. The villages in the Valley are all unspoilt and each has its individual charm and character. Only seven miles to the north of the Chew Valley is the City of Bristol, the West Country's financial and business centre, whilst the charming City of Bath with its Roman origins and Georgian architectural masterpieces is under half an hour's drive to the East. On the southern side of the Mendips is the historic City of Wells, England's smallest, with its ancient Cathedral.
The region is well served by excellent Inter City Rail Links and the M4/M5 links to the rest of the Country. Bristol Airport is some six miles to the west.
Travelling into the village of Stanton Drew from the North, proceed past the Druids Arms on the left hand side and the Cricket Club on the right hand side. Continue along the lane for a short while and then the property can be found set well back from the lane on your right hand side.
