So much to see and do…
There can be fewer more attractive settings for a retirement village than Avonpark. It sits high above the villages of Limpley Stoke and Freshford, overlooking the Avon Valley below and just a short drive to the tourist magnet that is Bradford-on-Avon with its quaint shops and restaurants, babbling river and honey-coloured stone buildings.
Freshford village offers a railway line, a doctors surgery, a village hall, a church, a car garage, post office and village shop with a café, There is also an active social community at Freshford village with clubs such as a tennis club, a history society, a horticultural society, cricket and an environmental group.
As if that isn’t enough, Avonpark village is just six miles from the historic spa city of Bath, which is on a mainline train route to London Paddington. The trip to the capital is around 90 minutes, while Bristol is about 30 minutes in the opposite direction.
Bath is a hugely popular visitor attraction – made famous by its naturally hot spa water and original Roman baths. It has been afforded the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is renowned for its 18th century Georgian architecture.
Tourists visiting the area are also drawn to famous Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain and further into Somerset, Cheddar Gorge.
Avonpark really does sit in a beautiful part of the world with plenty to see and do – the perfect place to enjoy a full and active retirement. And if you need to rely on public transport, you can hop on a local bus, which stops at the end of the village drive with access to local villages and into Bath.
