South Stoke is 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 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 also have Combe Down village nearby with its abundance of amenities, shops and all levels of schooling.
