Location

The picturesque village of Bathampton, on the edge of the historic City of Bath, straddles the Kennet & Avon Canal and the River Avon. Tyning Meadows lies close to the historic St Nicholas Church and the famous George Inn accessed from the canal bridge via a quiet country lane, past fields and the Ofsted Outstanding Bathampton Primary School. The village centre is a short distance in the other direction, providing a village store, post office, newsagents, hair and beauty salon and chemist.

The all-weather canal towpath provides a delightful walking or cycling route offering relatively level access into the Centre of Bath, approximately 2.5 miles away. This provides an opportunity to detour through the famous Sydney Gardens, enjoyed by Jane Austen and home to the world renowned Holburne Museum, and then proceed along the architecturally stunning Great Pulteney Street into the centre itself. In the other direction the canal towpath continues towards the town of Bradford on Avon and beyond, through Wiltshire and into Berkshire. There is a frequent bus service to and from Bath, with a bus stop approximately 5 minutes’ walk from the site also accessing a number of services to Wiltshire and the south.

Bath Spa train station is within 3 miles offering journey times to London Paddington of approximately 1½ hours with a half hourly service. The electrification of the Great Western Mainline will improve capacity and provide faster journey times. Bathampton lies between the A36 and the A4 (via a toll bridge), both of which are main routes into Bath. The M4 is less than ten miles to the north, and is accessed across the toll bridge and via the A4 / A46. To the south the A36 offers routes to Southampton, the M3 and Devon & Cornwallvia the A303.

Bath has an enviable range of independent and state schools for children of all ages. There are a number of impressive schools in close proximity and easily accessed from Tyning Meadows including Bathampton Primary and Bathwick St Mary’s Primary. For secondary schooling the state schools of Beechen Cliff , Hayesfield and Ralph Allen are well regarded, with excellent independent options offered by Prior Park College, Monkton Combe, Royal High School, Kingswood and King Edwards. For higher education, Bath boasts two first-class universities at University of Bath and Bath Spa University.
