Getting around
Here are some handy tips about travel around the area. The nearest bus stop. Turn left out of the cottage door and walk 75 yards with the wall on your right. There is a gap in the wall with some steps. Go up the steps and you will see ahead of you (about 25 yards) a gap in the wall. The bus stop to Bath is opposite. The bus stop to Wells is to your left. Remember in England to put out your arm or sometimes the bus may not stop. We will send a series of e mails on directions to Bath, walking in to Wells. To Cheddar Gorge and other places.
