Clandown nr Bath, Somerset
A spacious studio concealed within this meticulously converted church near Bath
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
This wonderfully light and spacious studio is nestled comfortably within a beautifully converted church. Eclectic, modern interiors sit happily amongst the celestial features - think stone arches and large ornate windows. And with a big wood burning stove at its heart, it’s a truly divine space.
Set in the rolling countryside of Somerset there’s 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, you’ll be pleased to hear, there’s underfloor heating throughout the main part of the apartment, excluding the bathroom, where there is a separate heater.
Outside there is a lovely patio area and a peaceful garden for you to enjoy. Set in the grounds of this fabulous church, gardens don’t get much prettier. And with such tranquil setting, you're able to rest and relax in style.
In the local area there is loads to explore. The picture-perfect cities of Wells and Bath are within easy striking distance. Other lovely places to visit, that are also within reach include the marvellous Cheddar Gorge, world-famous Glastonbury, the wonderfully fun and vibrant city of Bristol, and Longleat Safari Park.

Me and my partner recently stayed here for 5 nights and it definitely wasn't enough time! The place is beautifully done with exceptional attention to detail (the fresh flowers dotted around were lovely!) the kitchen had everything you could possibly need which made cooking very enjoyable. The board games and books really brought some life to the cool nights, with a roaring fire and a glass of wine! And last but not least.. The cookies. The cookies that were ready waiting for out arrival were divine, Christine really is an amazing host! We would come back here in a heartbeat! Stunning property and very helpful hosts.

We have just spend a great week at The Studio in Somerset. Unique architecture coupled with all modern conveniences including an exceptionally equipped kitchen. Immaculately presented and conveniently located for exploring all that Somerset has to offer - including Bath, Glastonbury, Wells, Frome and of course the coastline. Would highly recommend a stay at The Studio - we loved it.

A home away from home - everything you need is provided. The Studio was perfect for a low-key break in a peaceful location, but still easy to get around to places nearby. Christine was a really considerate host and made sure I had everything I needed. Highly recommended!

Stunning! What a find, just 20 mins from Bath in the Somerset countryside, this converted church makes you smile the moment you walk through the door! Modern interior design in a historic setting - the studio has everything you could possibly need during your stay. Spotlessly clean with quality linen, fresh flowers and herbs from the garden, home made scones & jam on arrival and a log burner for cozy evenings.. we loved this place and Christine was a wonderful host - thank you!

The Studio is a hidden gem. Sat on a hill in a small village in the Somerset countryside. It is equipped perfectly for those who like to cook indoors and Christine provided some little extras and details that make you feel right at home and add to the experience. The modern refurbishment on this classical building is very special and with a beautiful garden full of plants and flowers, made a fantastic setting for our engagement! Perfectly located to venture into Bath, Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Glastonbury - trips which we fit into our 4 night stay and allowed enough time to relax and enjoy the studio. We have already recommended this to several people and wouldn't hesitate to visit again in the future. 5*

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.

What a fantastic find for a restful weekend away. Clean and tidy. Every utensil you need for cooking. Home baked goodies on arrival. Light and spacious. Pretty courtyard for a game of chess and a coffee.
