Location of my Sewing Classes
My sewing workshop is situated near in Kingsdown near Box and is 20 minutes drive from Bath. Corsham a lovely old market town, is only 10 minutes away by car. There is lots of exploring; nature, history, places to visit; accommodation to suit all pockets; and wonderful places to eat, in and around Bath, Wiltshire …
History and Things to Do
Kingsdown golf course is a stones throw away…and the charming village of Box near the beautiful Bybrook valley is within walking distance, with the famous Box railway tunnel built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Lots of fantastic walks nearby too.
A village of particular interest the National Trust village of Lacock. Lacock is unspoilt and charming … well known as a location for many TV and films. Lacock Abbey was used in the making of the Harry Potter films and is a great place to visit – the grand entrance hall is breathtaking, and in winter there is a roaring fire in the grate to warm yourself beside. It also houses a museum of photography, as Lacock was its birthplace. Lacock is surrounded by beautiful countryside much of which is free to walk through, follow the River Avon … walk through fields of lambs in Spring, paddle in the ford, visit the small shops and tea houses, or enjoy a quiet drink in one of the 2 public houses in the village.
The historic City of Bath is 25 mins by car. Bath is so beautiful … the honey-coloured buildings and magnificent architecture are breathtaking. The Royal Crescent and Queens Crescent are a must to see, as well as a visit to the famous Roman Bath. There is also now a modern spa to visit too, with a rooftop open-air pool that is magical by moonlight! There is also a wonderful Fashion museum, The Holbourne museum (lovely cafes at both!) and Victoria Art Gallery (admission free), plus visit the Royal Crescent House that has been restored to its original decor – to savour a taste of what Georgian Bath was really like. Finally, don’t forget to enjoy the fantastic shopping and abundance of places to eat and drink. The River Avon and weir runs through the city and there is a beautiful, sunken park that often has entertainment in the centre. Also worth visiting is Victoria Park which has a huge children’s play area and formal and informal gardens.
Finally, don’t forget the famous Bath Christmas market running for 2 weeks at the end of November.
There are several air bnb’s and guest houses close to the The Make Room, in Lacock itself, and the surrounding villages. Also lovely Georgian hotels close by are Beechfield House, Guyers Hotel and an endless choice in and surrounding Bath. Contact Ellen for details.
Places to Eat
There are some lovely places to eat nearby that I can recommend. The Red Lion in Lacock, The Rising Sun on Bowden Hill, The Quarrymans on Box Hill, or for something special, Sign of The Angel in Lacock village. In the nearest town of Corsham – The Methuen Arms or Mother & Wild are definitely worth a visit. A wide range of wonderful restaurants in Bath too, including The Ivy, a new popular addition!
Beautiful Bath, Wiltshire …
