About Ann Stewart

I have lived in the Midford Valley near Bath for 45 years in Tucking Mill Manor. The city is a very pretty place with so many landmarks, attractions and places to dine out at in the evening. For a UK holiday, you'll really struggle to beat the attraction of Bath.

My team and I run this small holiday business from our own home just outside Bath. We own all the properties we let and that includes the 3 cottages at Tucking Mill, only 12 mins from Bath city centre and 2 luxury apartments in the city itself.

We converted all the properties over the last 2-3 years to the standard that we enjoy when we are away.

As a self catering operation, our strategy is to ensure our guests have as seamless communication as possible and only need to contact us if there is a problem.

We work hard to constantly upgrade our properties to ensure the Gold Standard is maintained and as close to home from home as possible.

Ann Stewart purchased this cottage in 1962

Why Ann Stewart chose Bath

Quite simply the setting of Brooks' View is second to none. It is wonderfully romantic! The views are unparalleled in their scope of beautiful English countryside across the Midford Valley and the brooks that run at the end of the properties' gardens add all the more to the atmosphere, especially when enjoying your favourite tipple on the private terrace. There are walks and cycle routes all around, which means exploring never gets dull, and Bath is so alive with a buzz for tourism, events and visiting culture that there's always things to do and see.

What makes this cottage unique

The best part of the cottages for many guests is the location. Not only are the views exceptional and could captivate you for hours, but there's also an abundance of wildlife, walks, cycle routes, access to the south west and of course Bath just minutes away. The properties themselves manage to be both spacious and cosy, so they are always appealing to holidaymakers whether they're small families or couples.

The best way to experience the magic of this area is to come and see it for yourself!

luxury, cosy, calm stay close to Bath

  • 5 of 5

We had previously stayed at Tucking Mill View so as we had a few spare days wanted to try another of the Tucking Mill cottages and we were not disappointed. The bathroom was a delight with the Victorian claw bath and the large walk in shower satisfying both our requirements.

Being Feb we used the woodburner which was a real treat.

Keen to come back in the summer to use the lovely Summer house and sit beside the brook.

The cottage is just so close to Bath you would not believe it when you sit in the calm of the garden watching the cattle, deer and wildlife

Tucking Mill could become addictive!

Warm welcoming and atmospheric, coming to a well lit, clean and refreshing cottage with superbly comfortable bedding - add the fresh country air and we slept like logs!

Brooks View

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Brooks View was everything we hoped for and more. All the charm of a quaint country cottage set in beautiful grounds with a brook at the bottom of the garden.

Big comfy sofas and a wood burning stove. A relaxing experience with a king size comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom.

We are already planning to return in the summer when the flowers are blooming and have a barbeque in the lovely garden. Thanks to Ann and Nikki for making our stay so memorable.

A peaceful and comfortable break

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Bath but it certainly won't be our last. At least not if we can stay in one of the Tucking Mill luxury cottages...we were overwhelmed with the facilities and in particular the log burning fire. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom with a Victorian claw bath and the large walk in shower was amazing. A real treat.

Looking forward to seeing the garden in the Spring...so we shall be back and hopefully be able to do some fly fishing.

Lovely cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay at the cottage as getting some peace and quiet was just what we needed after hard slogs at the office! Loved that Bath was only ten minutes away by taxi so we could see the sights and get some shopping in. We hope to stay again soon.
