Our family, with 2 Golden Retrievers, moved to Steeple Ashton in 1976 and now we really can't imagine living anywhere else. In the past we had shops in Bath and Bradford on Avon selling early antique country furniture and offering interior design advice. Hence the antiques in Coachmans Cottage.

Penny Hornsey purchased this cottage in 1986

Coachmans Cottage was purchased in 1986 for my Grandmother. . She spent 6 very happy years living here. Now we would not want to part with the cottage next door, it is too much a part of our lives, and meeting all of the special guests that come to stay over the years is such an added bonus.

Coachmans Cottage is situated in the heart of this beautiful, award winning, conservation village, on a quiet lane just off the village green. The Longs Arms pub, serves good food. Pick up hot croissants for breakfast and a daily paper from the Award Winning village shop, both are only 100/200 metres away. St Marys Church is a short stroll in the opposite direction. The friendly villagers make visitors very welcome and as a past guest wrote in the Visitor Book 'like Midsummer without the murder'!

Warm/cosy/beautifully furnished & spotlessly clean
  • Review Submitted: 13-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
After a long drive on a grey and dismal February weekend, it was lovely to arrive at Coachman’s Cottage, which was warm and cosy, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and with all the essentials one needs when self catering - even some chocolate cake to keep us going. The village itself is perfectly placed for exploring the area – the scenic countryside, pretty villages, not forgetting Bath and Salisbury. There’s a friendly village shop nearby for essentials, but the larger supermarkets are only a short drive away in the nearby towns. And the pub is conveniently within walking distance! It was a pleasure to stay for a week and thanks to the owner, Penny, for her hospitality.
Response: I am so pleased that you enjoyed you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully you will find your dream home in this locality this year, meanwhile I would love to welcome you back to Coachmans again. Best, Penny

Looking for Comfort and Relaxation? This is the Pl

  • Review Submitted: 13-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
We've stayed in many cottages over the years, many of which were very good but this is now a favourite. The cottage is comfortable, airy and welcoming. Although the front room is of a very good size for a cottage, it still had a cosy feel to it. The kitchen is quite small but believe me, everything you would need for a self catering holiday is there. Every room was decorated to a high standard and little touches around the place like tissues in the main bedroom and hand cream in the bathroom showed that Penny and Peter try to make their guests feel as welcome as possible. The log fire was probably my favourite thing although the central heating was more than adequate.The village itself is beautiful but despite staying for a week, we just didn't find the time to have a good walk round - something we hope to rectify in the future. This is a perfect base for such attractions as Bath, Cheddar Gorge, Bristol to name but a few. Oh and yes! we agree with other reviews, the chocolate cake which awaited us on our arrival was delicious.Thank you both for a great stay.
Response: Oh thank you so much for such a glowing review. Arriving in the midst of what has been the wettest winter on record you were so lucky with the weather which always helps a holiday along. We are really pleased that you have felt comfortable in Coachmans whether rain or shine. I look forward to welcoming you both back in the future. Best Penny.

Thank you Penny and Peter for the warm welcome (and delicious chocolate cake) to your beautiful cottage. Coachmans Cottage is a joy to stay in , everything is there for one\'s comfort . The beds are very comfy and the cottage is in a very peaceful setting. After a three night stay we felt completely refreshed. Many thanks , we hope we may have the privilege of a return visit sometime.
Response: Many thanks for taking the time to send this very kind review and we are so pleased that Coachmans continues to please. It was very pleasant chatting with you both again, and hearing all about the recent marriage of your youngest daughter. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Coachmans again soon. Best. Penny

Despite the rain we recently enjoyed a lovely, relaxing weekend at the Coachman's Cottage. Set in an idyllic location, the cottage has lots of character and everything you need has been thought of by Penny. We hope to visit again later this year. Thank you

Birthday memories

  • Review Submitted: 13-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
Hiring a classic car and staying at the Cottage was a perfect way to explore this lovely part of the West Country. The Cottage was lovely for a birthday weekend away with the village (especially the shop/café) being welcoming and a relaxing escape from the pressures of everyday life. The Cottage was full of character and provided everything we needed and more. Claire chuckled a lot every time Ben banged his head on the beams (there were numerous chuckles!). Thank you Penny for being the perfect host and for the little touches that made the difference.
Response: Lovely to meet you both, yes Ben is very tall and some doorways do have to be ducked under by one so lofty. We look forward to meeting you both again in the future. Best wishes for the New Year. Penny.
