“A fantastic cottage for our time away.”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at White Hart Cottage for a birthday weekend away with our 2 year old little boy. From booking the cottage, Fenella was fantastically efficient and went out of her way to answer any queries and ensure our trip went smoothly.

The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and greatly appreciated. The cottage was a perfect size for us and the master bedroom was really spacious and decorated to a really high standard, as too was the whole property.

Fenella had ensured the cottage was well equipped with everything that we could have needed and even popped a stair gate up to keep our little one safe.

Thank you for a great weekend, we would highly recommend it and we will be back to visit again.

First off the communication from the owner Fenella was first class. Any questions were answered quickly and she also recommended some nice restaurants and things to do. As me and my wife went to celebrate our first anniversary there was a lovely basket of goodies to welcome us. A little touch but one that was greatly appreciated.

The property was lovely. It was in excellent condition and in all aspects was finished to a very high standard. It has a real cottage feel which is finished off by a lovely log burner.

The location is perfect. You are a 10 minute walk away from the station and trains regularly run to bath. The train journey is only 10 mins to and there are no stops. There is a great local shop which sells everything you may need for your stay. On some nights In the shop car park there is a pizza place that sell pizzas straight from the pizza oven, This was lovely and tasted so much better than the pizzas you get from places like dominos.

For us the homeliness of the cottage was the thing we liked the best. The thing we liked the least was that we could not of stayed longer!!!!

“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a fantastic winter-break in the White Hart Cottage last week. It is a beautiful little old cottage with all mod.cons! The cottage has been renovated to the highest of standards and is very well equipped (particulary the kitchen) - there was nothing that we needed and didn't find! Down the road is a lovely farmyard shop where we went shopping each day. A beautiful 15 minute walk to the station and you are a 10 minute train ride away from Bath. The owners are very kind and friendly people who really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. Our two year old daughter loved it too and it was perfect to have the tranquility of the countryside but still to be near to a larger town.
We would definitely come again! Thankyou so much for a great stay!

“Wonderful cosy and luxurious cottage, suitable for families or a couple.”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were the first guests to stay at White Hart Cottage and we couldn't rate it high enough. Fenella, the owner lives across the road and was always on hand if there was anything that we needed during our stay. They have furnished the cottage very well and is well suited to young children. I stayed here with my husband and 14 month old daughter during a property searching trip and it was ideal. Fenella had gone to trouble of fitting a stair gate and had purchased a new mamas and papas travel cot and a high chair. The cosy log burner and the welcome pack on arrival made our evenings (once little one was asleep) the perfect place to unwind after a long day of looking at properties.

The luxurious touches were very much appreciated including white company linen and towels. The property is situated in a gorgeous village (Freshford) with a very friendly community run village shop and cafe just down the road. There are a number of footpaths into the lovely countryside just a stones throw from the cottage, so would also make a good base for a walking trip. We would highly recommend this cottage and plan to return soon.
