8 of us stayed at Benson Cottage for the weekend (two nights) to celebrate my best friend's hen weekend. The booking process was easy and efficient and Sam (the owner) was very helpful and always replied promptly to any emails.
When we arrived we were greeted by Sam who showed us around and helped us to settle in. There were some thoughtful supplies and nice touches provided as other reviewers have mentioned eg bread, milk, flowers etc. we also loved that there were slippers, toiletries and umbrellas provided. These little touches made it extra special! The building itself is lovely and the 8 of us comfortably fit in without feeling overcrowded. The kitchen is well equipped which made catering for us all much easier.
The house is in a great location, only a few minutes from all the bars and shops but not so close that you get the noise from them! We walked from the train station and it only took 10-15 mins at a slow saunter.
All the guests on the hen weekend loved the accommodation and we were very pleased with our choice. Excellent value for money and highly recommended! If we return to bath we would definitely book here again!
A group of 7 of us stayed at Benson Cottage for a 4-day break over the August bank holiday weekend and it was fantastic!
Initially we had another house booked for our short stay but we were let down at the last minute. Luckily, after finding Benson Cottage online we managed to book up quickly and easily and Sam really saved the day!
When we arrived, Sam came to meet us at the house which was lovely and we were also greeted by a couple of bottles of wine, bread, milk, butter and jam!
The cottage itself was spacious, cosy and wonderfully decorated. Location-wise it couldn't have been any better! Literally smack bang in the centre of Bath with only a 5/10 minute walk to a large Waitrose, bars, restaurants and shops.
We loved every minute of our girly weekend away and will definitely be heading back to Benson Cottage in the future for any weekends away.
Sam was friendly, happy to help and during the booking process always responded quickly!

Booked the cottage for 10 of us for a 2 night stay hen weekend. From the moment I made the first inquiry to arriving on the day, Sam the owner was fantastic. The little things went a long way. Bread, wine, jam on the table...soft drinks and milk for us to use and beautiful open sunflowers in the front kitchen window all making it a wonderful place. The decor modern witha hint of "old" about it.
Everyone had a great time and we were sad to say" cheerio " on our 3rd final day at Benson Cottage....
It has to be said.....we will be returning in 2015 ♥
I booked Benson Cottage for a hen do of 9 and none of us were disappointed. Sam (who was very helpful and accommodating) was there to great us along with a bottle of wine, some fresh bread and some jam on the table which was a nice touch. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a short or long stay. It only takes 5-10 minutes max to walk in to Bath centre.
Only slight downside to our weekend was it was probably the hottest weekend of the year and there is no outside space at the cottage! Nevertheless, everyone kept in good spirits and it didn't ruin our weekend as this issue couldn't be helped and the rest of the cottage made up for this.
Would definitely recommend to others and go back again myself, should the occasion arise.
Me and eight girls stayed here for my best friends hen weekend in April, the location was fantastic and Sam (the owner) answered all of my questions quickly and with lots of detail and advice for our stay.
The Cottage is lovely and we were greeted with fresh bread and wine which was a lovley gesture. We all said we wished we had booked an extra night as we really didnt want to leave. If you are thinking of booking here i can't recommend it highly enough.
Thanks again to Sam and Rachel

We recently stayed at Benson Cottage for my best friends Hen party. Having arranged the weekend in secret, the hen was blown away by the perfection of Benson Cottage! The beautiful decoration, style, cleanliness and amenities offered were beyond what we all were expecting! The small touches Sam has made to Benson Cottage really do make all the difference!
Sam was at Benson Cottage when I arrived, and helped me carry my luggage in before giving me a quick tour of the cottage and explaining where all the places we were going to over the weekend were.
It couldn't of been in a better location, a few streets away from the bars, restaurants and shops we wanted to visit, yet tucked away on a quiet street. A few minutes away was Waitrose which was perfect for us to pick up what we needed for the weekend. It is also a pleasant 10minute walk through the city centre to Bath spa, and also a short walk for the girls who came via train (or approx £6 for a taxi). The parking is 10-15 mins away from Benson Cottage but for us this wasn't an issue: It is easy to just pull over on the main street and run your luggage into the cottage before parking. Knowing how expensive parking in Bath can be, it was a great advantage for us that Sam could offer parking permits!
We definitly made the right choice staying at Benson Cottage, I honestly couldn't recommend it enough! We would definitly love to stay again!!
We spent a few nights in benson cottage for a hen party and it was brilliant and the owners/manager were very helpful. The cottage is located within 5-10 minutes walk from everywhere including the spa, shops and clubs. Would definitely recommend for a holiday cottage for a hen party or a family break.
