This is a wonderful little apartment - super smart, immaculate, quiet, and accessible. This was our second visit - but will almost certainly stay again if possible. Very helpful hosts too ;-) Can't fault it! The location is fab - nice little village with excellent train and road connections to Bath, and a community shop with the essentials.
