If so, what is it like? How far to Bath by train? Are there decent shops, etc? DH and I are thinking of moving there from central London and have seen some nice places online, but not actually been there yet. Is it out in the sticks, and will we need a car? TIA
BoA is nice, little shops rather than high st chains. Quite a few Bunting style shops, also a very nice little ethical supermarket, some cafe/bstro places, green grocers, stationers, bakers. Small library. Weekly or fortnightly market. Swimming pool. Canal. Number of pubs which do food. Secondary school is ok, not sure about primarie sbut would have thought it is nice.
There's a sainsburys.
Not sure re car; the actual town area is small, and there is a train station and buses. It is quite out in the sticks but there is a fair bit to do.
