An historical gem set in the Somerset countryside, less than a mile from the beach and at the foot of the picturesque Quantock Hills. Kilve Court is a Georgian country house with modern extensions, situated in 40 acres of wooded grounds and gardens.
Charterhouse is located approximately 30 minutes south of Bristol and is set in the heart of the Mendip Hills, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is ideally situated for groups wanting to take advantage of the fantastic walks, local caves and climbing venues the area has to offer.
