Days Out

Crossover House, located in Almondsbury a beautiful village just north of Bristol, South Gloucestershire, is ideally positioned for visiting the many sites and attractions in the area. Its position just one mile from junction 16 of the M5 makes it in easy striking distance of wild life parks, castles and stately homes, the attractions of Bath, the wide choice of shopping venues in and around Bristol and for the more energetic trips to the mountains of Wales to mention but a few.


So varied are the options that we have put together a number of Days Out. These include short walks and visits to gardens, longer walks and mountain hikes, visits to Bath or Bristol… Each gives a description of the attraction, round trip mileages, entry fees where appropriate, parking and most important recommended places for lunch or tea.
