Lovely cottage, beautiful peaceful location, owners were very welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and the owners made us feel right at home. Couldn't really wish for anything more - the cottage had TVs in both the sitting room and bedroom, underfloor heating throughout and a well fitted out kitchen. The front room also had a log burner but we didn't feel the need to use it as the underfloor heating was so effective. There was no dishwasher but we didn't expect one given the size of the cottage. Despite the country location the Wi-Fi / Internet connection was excellent, and we were able to plug our Amazon Fire TV stick into both TVs and stream films / TV shows using our subscription. The TVs also came with Freeview / Freesat.

The owners really have put a lot of thought into the cottage, and this was evident in all the finishing touches. On arrival we were surprised to find a freshly baked brown loaf, lemon drizzle cake and milk, eggs, home made marmalade and bacon in the fridge. This made us feel very welcome and right at home as soon as we got there. Top marks to Vivienne and Richard. I think we'll be coming back again soon.

Four days was not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, lovely hosts, lovely time! In the quiet countryside only 15 minutes from Bath. We stayed at eight different places on our trip to UK, and this was our favorite. All the comforts of home. Highly recommend!

Lovely cottage outside Bath

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to freshly baked bread, chocolate cake and eggs/bacon, milk, butter/marmalade and a warm welcome from the dog we thoroughly enjoyed this lovely cottage. It was spotless and had everything you would need for a perfect stay outside of Bath. We enjoyed strolling down the lane and visiting the ponies and pathways and the short drive into bustling Bath. We had a day out to see Farleigh and Nunney castles and were happy to return to the comfortable cottage. Highly recommended for a lovely English countryside experience.

Delightful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted with a very warm welcome and some lovely lemon drizzle cake to have with a drink after our long drive. There was homemade bread, eggs and bacon left for our breakfast the next day which we so enjoyed. The barn was beautifully kitted out with everything you need, with a wonderful wet room that had a magnificent power shower.

Our 3 nights happened to have been on the 3 successive hottest days of the year, but despite the overbearing heat we still wanted to go on long walks with our daughter's cocker spaniel, Charlie and even did a walk to Bath along the canal (about 5 miles). This was a challenge in 30 degree heat, but at least Charlie had plenty of places along the way to have a cooling dip!

Cannot fault the accommodation or it's owners in any way and would recommend it for anyone who wants a peaceful break. Lovely rural location, but not too far from Bath city centre.

Thank you so much to Vivienne, Richard and Megan. This is a perfect get away and a lovely break off work. The barn is cosy and we had the warmest of welcomes by Vivienne and the dog; as well as fresh eggs, milk, bacon, homemade cake and bread.

The location was perfect and peaceful. The roads were slightly muddy and narrow but that is very much expected as you are staying in the country side.

We will definitely be returning and we are really looking forward to it.

Thank you
