Very handy for Bath being set about 10 minutes away by car (regular bus route very close) this lovely cottage is small but beautifully refurbished. I particularly liked the well equipped granite topped kitchen which although small has been very well designed making it very easy to use. The rolling hillside view was very peaceful and calming which I found... more

Have just spent a week at this cottage using it as a base to explore area around Bath. The cottage is very small but has been designed so everything fits remarkably well. Very cute decor and would be great for a couple on a romantic break. Would be a squeeze for 4 adults unless you were out alot. Takes about... more

Management response:

We always send out access and parking details which are easy to follow. There is a simple way to get to the cottage round the back and no one else has found it hard or encountered... more

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful old Cotswold cottage, which is set in fabulous Somerset rolling hills a few minutes outside the stunning Roman city of Bath. The cottage has been beautifully done up with a lovely traditional kitchen and very comfortable bedrooms. Bath is just great with its spectacular architecture and wonderful restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs.
