Fern Cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Stanton Drew. Stanton Drew is a popular village situated within the Chew Valley. Within the village, there is a small range of local facilities including a primary school about 1 kilometre away from the property (There is a pick up point for both the Primary School and Chew Valley School outside the Village Hall, which is immediately opposite Fern Cottage), a public house, a church and a village hall. The village is also famous for its stone circles, these ancient monuments date from 3000 – 2000 BC and display the second largest stone circle in Britain. The neighbouring village of Chew Magna has a good range of local shops including a well-stocked supermarket, master butcher, coffee shop, gift shops, travel agent, post office and a pharmacy. There are also four excellent public houses nearby. The village’s situation in the Chew Valley offers commuters excellent access to the regional centre of Bristol which is 8 miles to the north and the Heritage City of Bath which is 13 miles to the east. The Cathedral City of Wells, which offers further facilities, is 17 miles to the south. The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. A visit to Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake is highly recommended, as this modern tearoom/fish restaurant is owned by the same family as The Pony and Trap. The Mendip hills, well known for their limestone features, provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.
