“Glorious stay in a stunningly beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My new wife and I stayed here as part of a 'Mini-Moon' celebration just after we got married - and it was exactly what wanted after the huff, puff and stress leading up to the wedding! The cottage itself is south of the city of Bath in a tiny little village, it is easy to find though and satnav's will take you right to the front door and the secluded and private parking bay. No one there to greet you, so just a case of taking your secure code and picking up the key outside the front door. What you get is a delightful little 1 bed cottage that is perfect for 2 people. Lovely little reception room leading into a great sized kitchen, then up the stairs to a large double bedroom and a huge bathroom and separate shower. My wife loved the bath.....and the bed was incredibly comfortable. A real highlight is the massive garden with a little hut looking out onto the stream at the back - we even enjoyed a BBQ there!

To sum up, it is all you need for a relaxing break in the countryside. Everyone we met between the 2 pubs (Hope& Anchor and the Wrightman arms) were so friendly it was unreal. The cottage is just perfect and we shall certainly be looking to come again.

Also, the landlady Anne - a real delight and very helpful in arranging all we needed via email

Tip- make sure you stop at major supermarket in Bath to stock up on food - you will not want to leave the cottage! Also invest in a local walkers map as the surrounding forest and countryside is magical

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful little cottage which feels in the middle of no where but is only a short drive from Bath town. Very quiet and relaxing stay and was nice just to sit and watch the birds in the garden. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Our stay in Brook's View cottage was so short and we regret that it was not more longer. This place is so quiet and lovely. We enjoyed everything : beds are very comfy, the kitchen is well equiped, the garden and the view from the cottage are wonderful. We would like to come back soon.
We would not recommend this place to anyone because we'd like to keep it secret ;-)

“Very comfortable cottage in a tranquil setting”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I were looking for a comfortable cottage near enough to Bath to see the tourist attractions but far enough away for peace and quiet after a busy day. Brooks View cottage is just 4 miles from the centre of Batch and really fitted the bill. The web site was very informative and the cottage provided just what we needed for our short, 3-night stay.
The cottage is well equipped and the long garden with summer house and patio seating area for al-fresco dining at the bottom, plus a babbling brook running alongside were perfect. The garden is well stocked with flowers, the lawn well tended and the abundance of garden birds completed the scene of a traditional English country cottage garden.
The views from the end of the garden onto open countryside and wooded hills beyond provided real privacy and seclusion - the great weather we were lucky enough to have throughout our stay just put the cherry on the icing on the cake!

“Genuine English Cottage”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Down what felt like a very narrow country road we arrived at a genuine English cottage with a genuine English cottage garden by a brook. It was beautiful. Sitting at the attractive patio furniture in the garden you can hear the brook at the bottom of the garden. Just idyllic. The sun was shining, a long G&T...........just perfect. We felt truly "away from it all" and yet when we got up the next morning and drove into the city of Bath we were there in 15 minutes!

The cottage is small but very well presented and with all the facilities we were looking for. Fabulous large bathroom with both a walk in shower and a bath. Kitchen was well equipped and the provision of granola as well as tea and coffee was a nice touch. We did not try the Sherry nor the chocolates but again a welcome gesture.

The bed in the upstairs bedroom was king-size and very comfortable. The sofa bed in the lounge was fine for an overnight but would not want to have a long stay on this without a mattress topper. Plenty of cushions, blankets extra pillows. Beautifully clean throughout. Clear instructions for getting there and for booking in.

Wonderful place to stay! Perfect in every sense. Beautiful location. The wildlife seen from the living room window was absolutely stunning! This cottage in our opinion is a little piece of heaven on earth.
