South Stoke is somewhat of a hidden gem being a small picturesque village situated on the southern fringes of the city of Bath. It is located 2 miles (3 km) south of the city. The village is in a designated Conservation Area and the buildings are mainly built with cream oolitic limestone. There are no less than 27 listed structures in and around the immediate village, which has retained much of its original character and historic appeal. The village has most recently been made famous by the South Stoke villager’s successful campaign to buy back their beloved Pack Horse pub. Through community funding and national/international press coverage the pub re-opened at the beginning of the year and the result is a true testament to everyone’s efforts. A thriving and friendly village pub which is a must see should you visit the area. The local church is situated centrally in the village and dedicated to St James it dates from the 12th century. Although the village has a very rural secluded feeling it is also very usefully only 1/3 mile to the nearest bus stop to the city and public house and ½ mile to the nearest local supermarket and petrol station. You also have Combe Down village nearby with its abundance of amenities, shops and all levels of schooling. The village provides views over the surrounding countryside and is the starting point for many country walks. A popular route is to visit other villages and their pubs in the area, such as Combe Hay and Midford, via the now disused Somerset Coal Canal. You may also like to visit the nearby South Stoke Millennium Viewpoint which is a stone seated beauty spot providing far reaching views towards the Westbury White Horse hill and beyond.
