Swindon is the ideal area to spend quality time with friends and family. From visiting Swindon’s Designer Outlet to attending Wyvern Theatre, Swindon’s oldest entertainment facility. For trainspotters and history lovers, the award-winning Steam Museum of GWR‘s trains and social history exhibitions is great for a family day out. We also encourage our outdoor-loving residents and their guests to head to Stanton Country Park. It’s a wide open space designed for kids to play in, with park tea rooms and a farmhouse kitchen garden for adults to enjoy. The Stanton House Hotel, which is close to the renowned lake, is also nearby for refreshment stops.

Another year-round family favourite is Roves Farm. Voted Travellers Choice 2022 by TripAdvisor, here you can meet & feed the animals in Pets Corner, hop on a tractor ride, sit and relax with a cup of tea and homemade cake from the tearoom, and explore the indoor play barn or outdoor adventure play.

Built for pleasure and relaxation, Bath has so much to offer, with breathtaking countryside, magnificent Georgian architecture, and a thriving food and drink scene. Accessible to wheelchair users and tries to be as inclusive as possible for people with sensory impairment, our first recommendation for residents and loved ones is The Roman Baths. The Roman Baths are one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, where visitors can explore the complex, walk on the original Roman pavements and see the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva. Bath celebrates its most famous resident, Jane Austen in the The Jane Austen Centre. Set in a classically decorated Georgian townhouse, visitors experience a snapshot of life during Regency times and explore how living in this magnificent city affected Jane Austen and her writing.

Another favourite tourist spot is Sally Lunn’s, which is situated in Bath’s oldest house. This little tea room and restaurant are famed for birthing a certain kind of hybrid teacake that’s part bread bun, part cake, and much loved by both residents of Bath and its visitors. Bath Abbey offers visitors a moment of stillness; a space that’s alive with music and prayer, art and history, where awe-inspiring architecture lifts the eyes and raises the spirit. Accessible by car in just one hour from Blunsdon St Andrew, Bath is the perfect place to explore some of the prettiest countrysides England has to offer.
