Local Area Information:
Chew Stoke is a small village and civil parish in the Chew Valley, in Somerset and lies about 8 miles south of Bristol. It is at the northern edge of the Mendip Hills, a region designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is within the Bristol/Bath green belt. The parish includes the hamlet of Breach Hill, which is approximately 2 miles southwest of Chew Stoke itself. The village is at the northern end of Chew Valley Lake and a tributary of the River Chew, which rises in Strode, runs through the village.

The population circa 991 is served by a small shop offering basic provisions and newspapers, primary school and a bowling club. Fairseat Farm offers small business units and is a thriving business hub with a wide selection of local businesses including; Hairdresser, Chew Valley Carpets, Chew Valley Osteopathic & Therapies Practice, Valley Joinery & Construction Ltd, Tony Hucker TV Services, florist and Wholefoods Shop. The local pub, The Stoke Inn, also has the Chew Valley Raj Indian restaurant and takeaway, together with a takeaway fish and chip shop and small fruit and veg shop. It is also the location of 'The Hub in a Pub' which is a joint initiative between The Stoke Inn, Age UK B&NES, Bath & North East Somerset Council, and City of Bath College Community Learning Team. It offers a series of activities, classes and outings every Wednesday to enable older members of the community to get out and about. Recently opened next to the Chew Medical Practice is the 'Chew Kitchen' which serves breakfasts, light lunches and afternoon teas.

The village is a close community with lots of activities going on throughout the year. One of the main events of the calendar is the annual Harvest Home;
normally held on the first weekend in September, it offers a horse and dog show, bands, funfair, and other entertainments and ends the day with a traditional harvest supper. There is also a local cricket club for those budding cricketers.

Chew Stoke is approximately 8 miles south of Bristol, 16 miles from Bath, and 9 miles from Keynsham. It is 1.3 miles south of Chew Magna on the B3130 road that joins the A37 and A38. Public bus services are provided via the "Chew Valley Explorer" bus route 672/674, running from Bristol Bus Station to Cheddar with daily routes to Bristol and other once weekly services to Bath, Keynsham, Weston-super-Mare, Radstock and Wells. High speed rail services to London Paddington are available from Bristol [8 miles] and Bath [15 miles]. Other main line train stations are also located at Nailsea & Backwell [8.5 miles] and Weston-super-Mare [18 miles].

A 1.9-mile cycle route, the Chew Lake West Green Route, was opened around the western part of the lake from Chew Stoke and forms part of the Padstow to Bristol West Country Way National Cycle Network Route 3. It has all-weather surfacing, providing a smooth off-road facility for ramblers, mobility-challenged visitors, and cyclists of all abilities. Bristol Airport is approximately 10 miles

Schooling is well covered in the village with Magna Minors nursery, Chew Stoke CoE Primary School and secondary schooling being provided by the very popular Chew Valley School, which is less than a mile from the village. Nearby independent schools include Wells Cathedral, Millfield, Sidcot, Bristol and the Downs Preparatory School at Wraxall. Pre-school services are located at Ubley, Chew Magna and Chew Stoke.

Health services are provided at the Chew Medical Practice which is located just outside the village centre. There is a dispensary on site and also a pharmacy in nearby Chew Magna.

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 and golf courses at Farrington Gurney and Wells.

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 Roman City of Bath 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!
