Set in the rolling countryside of Somerset theres loads to do, from excellent walking in the Mendips to relaxed mooching around the elegant city of Bath or the independently-minded town of Frome.

Guests enter into the modern, elegant kitchen and pass through the an exquisite stone arch into the main living space. The well-equipped kitchen and handsome worktops make it a space fit for a chef - or you can take a seat at the retro dining table and opt to keep whoever is preparing your meal company.

The lounge area, with its brightly coloured cushions, is the epitome of both comfort and style. Nestle down in front of the marvellous wood burning stove and relax after a day out exploring the surrounding countryside.

The bedroom is part of the main space and houses the most beautiful stone framed window. Art on the walls and the gorgeously understated finer details make for an effortlessly relaxed space. Next door there is sleek bathroom with a modern walk-in shower. And, youll be pleased to hear, theres underfloor heating throughout the main part of the apartment, excluding the bathroom, where there is a separate heater.

Maggi says...
"I have just spend an idyllic long weekend at The Studio, just outside Bath. It is immaculate, spacious and extremely comfortable, and the kitchen is the best equipped I've ever seen for self catering.The deconsacrated church has been amazingly and thoughtfully converted by Christine and husband Don, who were fantastic hosts - providing home made muffins and biscuits on arrival. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were first class. It's a great place to base yourself for exploring World Heritage site, Bath. And it's not that far from Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge or the Cotswolds - but the walks locally are great too. I shall certainly return."
