About Chris Harvey
Chris and Cynthia bought the property 8 years ago and converted what was then an 'annexe' into holiday accommodation and have been running 'Oolitic Springs' for 5 years. We loved the rural location but also the close proximity and easy access to Bristol city centre and we thought that others would like it too. We are both environmental professionals who work in Bristol. Cynthia is an Environmental Consultant and Chris is a Hydrogeologist, which may explain the hydrogeological theme to the property's name, which originates from the springs which emanate from the Oolitic Limestone which crops out just below the ridge of Dundry Hill and can be seen from the surrounding footpaths. In our spare time Cynthia collects carnivorous plants which can be seen in the greenhouse in the garden and Chris is an avid runner who regularly competes in the Bristol Half Marathon.
Why Chris Harvey chose Dundry
The property is modern, spacious, clean, comfortable, well decorated and furnished and suitably equipped for a comfortable self catering holiday. However most people chose Oolitic Springs for its unique location. Situated in a rural area surrounded by fields yet less than 6 miles from, and with easy access to Bristol city centre. It is also conveniently located for the Roman town of Bath and the spectacular natural landscape of the Mendip Hills which include Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole. The property also has good access to both the M4 and M5 which make trips to locations further afield, such as the south-west of England and Wales, the midlands and the south-east possible in a day.
What makes this cottage unique
We believe that Oolitic Springs' rural setting but close proximity and easy access to Bristol make it quite unique. Sitting on the decked area, you feel like you're in a different world, to the 'hustle and bustle' of Bristol and it is hard to believe you are less than 6 miles from the city centre.
