Local Area Information:
The largest village in the Chew Valley area; Chew Magna, voted 'Best Village in Britain' in 2011 in the Sunday Times has a population of approximately 1,200. With its quaint raised Medieval pavements and historical buildings, it traces its history back to Saxon times. It has excellent local amenities with a mini supermarket, local butchers, bank, two cash machines, pubs, pharmacy, dentist, opticians, post office, café and gift shops. It is a popular village for those who wish to live in a rural village community but still be within commutable distance of a city; Bristol is only 10 miles away with its mainline railway and links to the M4 and M5 motorway network. Bristol International Airport is also within easy reach for those quick get-aways.

It is a welcoming village with lots of activities being organised throughout the year. The Chew Magna Society arranges and organises social events to foster community spirit and for the enjoyment of Chew Magna village residents; these have included a Duck Race; Summer Fair; Harvest Hop; Halloween party; Medieval banquet; Fireworks display and the Christmas street party.

The area boasts an excellent selection of public and private schools at both primary and secondary levels, as well as some excellent universities, such as Bristol, Bath and Bath Spa. The majority of the local villages in the area have their own primary schools and Chew Valley School, rated 'Good' for Years 7 - 10 and 'Outstanding' for their Sixth form by Ofstead is the very popular secondary school, which is within walking distance from the village centre.

The wider Chew Valley and surrounding areas are well known for offering an excellent variety of sporting and leisure activities and is a popular area for mountain biking; hiking/rambling; caving/rock climbing; fishing; bird watching and sailing. Chew Valley Lake, an important site for wildlife and wild fowl, has been dedicated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Protection Area. The Salt n Malt fish cafe, tearoom & takeaway at the picnic site, which is owned and run by Josh and Holly Eggleton of the Michelin stared local pub The Pony & Trap, is situated in an idyllic spot on the edge of Chew Valley Lake. Neighbouring Blagdon Lake also offers fishing and has a Victorian pumping station and Visitor Centre which includes science and environment exhibits and hands-on displays. There are leisure and sport centres at Chew Stoke, Winford, Midsomer Norton and Farrington Gurney.

For those who prefer something slightly less energetic the cities of Bristol and Bath offer an excellent selection of shops ranging from high street chains to more bespoke designer outlets for that little bit of retail therapy. If you are in the historic Roman City of Bath, famous for its hot water springs and Georgian architecture, and fancy a different kind of therapy after a hard day's shopping, then a trip to the Thermae Bath Spa is a must for a pamper session and cup of tea!

Medieval Wells, England's smallest City, with its cathedral and unique moated Bishop's Palace, is approximately 12 miles from Chew Magna. Wells offers a good range of local shops, cafes and bars, a Waitrose supermarket. The Wells Market Place has been a focal point of the City over the ages and still is today with a twice weekly market on Wednesday and Saturday selling local produce and goods. A Farmers' Market is held every Wednesday.
