It is very close to some lovely places. We visited the little towns of Tetbury and Chipping Sodbury - both well worth a visit. We didn't have long enough to do more but there are many other interesting places in the area
Lovely roads to ride around, the Sherston village was good as a lovely walk through the fields to the Rattlebone Inn. Easton Grey with it's pretty houses and bridge over the river was very pretty. We visited many things whilst we were here, Malmesbury was lovely, we did a walk around all the sites of the history from the Market Cross, the Abbey down to the Rice Mills via the Well, leaflet 50p at the Tourist Information Office, well worth it. The Arboretum was worth visiting too if you like walks and trees and the two local Castles, Beverston & Berkeley although Beverston is ruins and has now been converted into private dwellings.
