“Winderful two days near Bath”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We booked Beech Cottage because we wanted to visit the American Museum nearby, and were very pleased we did. Jeff is a wonderful host. Our room was lovely, overlooking the garden and a wooded field beyond. Breakfast is informal and relaxed. Will be staying here again.

Room Tip: the room at the back is, I'm think, a little larger than the others, and has a nice view.

We stayed at Beech Cottage for a long weekend. Jeff and Jacqui are lovely people - very laid back and welcoming. Excellent porridge at breakfast!! We felt instantly at home and would stay at Beech Cottage again if we return to Bath.

We stayed with the lovely Jeff & Jacqui in early May. We were on a three month trip around Europe and it was here that we felt the closest to home! We were warmly welcomed, with a cup of tea and a thorough introduction to Bath city! Jeff has a wealth of knowledge, and helped us plan our stay in Bath, to ensure we saw as much of Bath as we could!
We stayed for three nights in the King room. The room was nice and warm upon our return each evening, the bed was comfortable and the showers were hot and the pressure was great! Breakfast each morning was delicious too. Jacqui was up early every morning, preparing a healthy breakfast. Her Jamaican porridge was incredible! The new addition to the family JJ, a gorgeous white fluffy pup, provided a laugh after breakfast was cleaned up.
This B&B is located a little bit out of town, but there is a bus stop at the end of the driveway which takes you right into the city center, which is only a short walk down hill. Free Wifi & Free parking were also a bonus here.
Highly recommend staying here in Bath. We looked at many places to stay but are very glad we chose to stay here!

Tucked off the main road so a little challenging to find late at night. Welcoming host comfortable room with adequate en suite (powerful shower).
Host happy for us to oredr in late night pizza for hungry teenager and eat in the kitchen.
Lovely wholesome breakfast but no cooked option (made clear by host and on booking details)

We stayed here a few weeks ago and were very comfortable. Jeff was very helpful with local information about Bath and Jacqui made breakfast for us each morning. There is a bus service that runs quite close to the house although we chose to walk down the hill to the town on the first day. You have to go down a lane to access the cottage but once you know where it is that's easy. Would stay there again if ever we go to Bath again.

We are so pleased we stayed with Jeff and Jacqui at Beech Cottage. The location just out of the city is great as the bus goes straight past the property and it's only a short trip to the city centre. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was great. The property has a lovely garden area to sit and enjoy a cuppa or a glass of wine. The owners are so helpful and easy to get on with that we felt like we had made new friends! Highly recommended!

Dear D and P, Thank you for a great review - we thoroughly enjoyed your stay too! It is especially rewarding for us when guests allow themselves time to explore Bath at a gentle pace and they take away so much more than 'whistlestop tourists'. Best wishes from Jacqui and Jeff and JJ.

We chose Beech Cottage because of the positive reviews and we are very glad we did. From the moment we arrived, Jeff and Jacqui were friendly and welcoming, making us feel at home with a cup of tea and some suggestions for how to make the most of our stay. On our first evening we had a good meal in the local pub which is just around the corner. Our twin room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed breakfast - the porridge, toast and coffee were all excellent quality and extras such as yoghurt and fruit salad set us up for the day's sightseeing. We had intended to walk into the city centre (it's downhill) but used the bus instead to avoid getting totally soaked in the rain! 2 days were not enough to see everything that Bath has to offer so we will definitely return to the area and will hope to stay with Jeff and Jacqui again.

Thank you A & J for a lovely review:)
You stayed in our little twin room which is consistently popular, both for the twin bed format and for being our best priced room.
Because so many guests prefer twin beds we are investing in an upgrade of one of our double rooms. Very soon it will have a brand new zip and link bed offering guests the choice of a super comfortable 6ft wide double or twin 3ft singles. It offers a little more space and lovely views of the garden and the woods beyond. Perhaps if you make another trip to Bath you woud like to try our 'superior twin'. Best wishes J&J&JJ
