Access Statement for Roundhill Farmhouse

Introduction

Roundhill Farmhouse is located in Kelston, Bath and offers two guest rooms, one with a private en-suite, the other with an adjacent private bathroom.

Roundhill Farmhouse and the guest accommodation are situated on a shared access drive, which leads to the premises and 3 barn conversions which make up the farmstead. It is surrounded by trees, gardens and fields and faces sweeping views across Kelston Park, across the A431 from the front, where the two rooms are situated.  The centre of the World Heritage city of Bath is typically less than 10 minutes by car from the property and the route takes in beautiful elevated views of the Avon valley below.

Breathtaking circular views from the Kelston Roundhill – overlooking Bath City, Bristol and reaching to the Black Mountains in Wales, are a 15 minute walk away from the house. Kelston Weir on the River Avon is also short walk through the village and across the fields – or just 2 minutes by car – and a short walk along the river brings you to the cycle path into Bath or Bristol.

From Kelston Village, the bus into Bath and into Bristol stops regularly (outside the village pub) and is 500 metres from the house. Bristol City Centre is less than 12 miles away and Bristol International Airport is just 35 minutes away by car. Roundhill Farmhouse has been carefully renovated over 10 years and the bed and breakfast accommodation is accessed by the front guest staircase. Whilst we aim to meet the needs of all our guests, there are some original features of the building which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility. We have steps leading to the front door and a wide staircase leading to the first floor where the rooms are situated. Additional steps are found linking the super-king bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone Vanessa on 07733263844 or email us at stay@roundhillfarmhouse.com
