Tyning Meadows is a high quality development of 10 detached family residences by Charlcombe Homes, Bath’s premier “boutique” housebuilder. Situated at the base of the Limpley Stoke Valley and nestled below the surrounding downs, the site is within the Green Belt and the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a place with panoramic views including to Solsbury Hill, immortalized by Peter Gabriel’s song of the same name and to Sally in the Woods to the east.

Tyning Road is a country lane running between banked hedgerows and frequented by walkers accessing the surrounding countryside. As the lane enters the development it runs parallel with the Westbury branch railway line which is screened from the site by a 3 metre high extensively landscaped bund. The Bathampton Meadow and Oxbow Wetland beyond and below the railway attract a proliferation of wildlife to the area including some 16 species of dragonflies, 18 species of butterfly, deer and abundant birdlife.

To the west the open outlook is across farmland protected from development as part of Green Belt and within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as is the land to the north which additionally incorporates a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The design concept for the development has focused on creating a low density semirural “edge of village” setting. To achieve this, the plots have been formed and arranged to be much larger than one might normally find in modern developments, particularly in Bath and its surrounds. This has allowed more tree and shrub planting between and around houses which, along with maturing garden planting, will engender a “leafy” feel and look, and further encourage local wildlife.
