Sleeping 14, Tickety-Boo is a fabulous place to stay for big family holidays and celebrations, for gatherings with friends and for refined hen weekends. An indoor pool with a built-in hot tub, a sauna, games room and movie room are all yours for the whole of your stay.

If you’re not bothered about going out anywhere, we get that, after all, there’s so much at Tickety-Boo to keep you smiling. But maybe go to The Three Horseshoes in the village for hearty homecooked pub food or a beer in the garden; fill your lungs with wholesome fresh air with a climb to the top of Cley Hill where the views over the Wiltshire and Somerset countryside are staggering. If it’s springtime take a stroll around Black Dog Woods to see the bluebells, jump in the car and go for a spin, spotting the Wiltshire White Horses carved in the hillsides.

Have a day out with the family on the Longleat Estate, just down the road; see the famous lions, rhinos and monkeys on a drive through the Safari Park, take a tour of the mansion house, and have a barrel of fun at the attractions in the Square.

If historic houses and gardens are your thing, you’ll like Bowood House or the National Trust’s Stourhead; amble around the lakes, see the follies and the ice house, have a bite to eat in The Spread Eagle Inn. Art lovers won’t want to miss the exhibitions at Hauser & Wirth on the edge of Bruton, Harry Potter fans will like Lacock Abbey where they’ll recognise some of the scenes, like the cloisters at Hogwarts and the houses in the higgledy-piggledy village.

Bath is less than 30 minute’s drive; spend the day sightseeing with the Roman Baths, The Royal Crescent, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey top of your list; if you’re feeling adventurous book up for paddleboarding on the River Avon in the city centre. A little further away you can climb on board SS Great Britain at the harbourside in Bristol, see the marine life at Bristol Aquarium and for a very different air, browse the independent shops and boutiques at Clifton Village.

Frome is good too, with a huge vintage scene and once a month there’s a very upbeat vibe when the Frome Independent market is on; a merry throng fills the streets to look around the stalls and tuck into street food from around the world. At Bradford on Avon you can stroll along the towpath of the Kennet & Avon canal, hire kayaks and take to the waters, or enjoy a relaxing ride on the Barbara McLellan Trip Boat, watching ducks dabbling.

Back at Tickety-Boo, wind down for the evening, relaxing together. Enjoy a dip in the pool and a soak in the hot tub with the stars studding the sky above you, have a barbecue in the courtyard and fun in the games room, before you tiptoe off to Blanket Land. One big enormous Happy; make it yours. Book today!
