Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Bath & North East Somerset - No. 33

Quirky, Comfortable And Stylish 2 Bedroomed Bath Stone Cottage

First we fell in love with this beautiful, friendly village, and then we found our lovely little cottage with its quirky, sunlit rooms. Just 3 miles from central bath and all it has to offer, no. 33 is a wonderful place to stay. Built in 1751 of local bath stone but now offering the creature comforts of modern day living, the cottage is well equipped and comfortably furnished and is a delight to come home to.

There are countryside walks from the house and a regular bus service into bath if you want to leave the car at home. It is just a short stroll to either the community shop and café or the local pub both of which offer a truly warm welcome and excellent food. For the more adventurous it is possible to join the kennett and avon canal towpath nearby and walk into the centre of bath.

Whether you come to our cottage to enjoy the many cultural delights of the city of bath and its fabulous shops or to relax and explore the gorgeous cotswold countryside you will understand why we fell in love with bathford and no 33.

Why Fiona Hall chose Bath & North East Somerset

We love coming here and have been made so welcome by everyone we have met. Houses are only seldom available as very few people choose to leave this lovely village so we were delighted to find No.33 and look forward to many more happy times in Bathford.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the fact we can hop on a bus and enjoy the trip into Bath with no parking or traffic worries. With the pub at the bottom of the road and the great village shop and cafe we can forget about the car if we want to.

There are just so many things to do it will be a long time before we get round to them all.

Nice place and quiet location, great stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed there for three days with family (3 people). Owner was prompt and friendly and very flexible with our early check-in. Property was cosy, clean and had all the amenities including free parking in front of the house. Heating was perfect. Nice pub down the road. Overall very happy with the stay. Hope to visit again soon.

Bath midweek break

  • 2 of 5

Having wanted to visit Bath for so long, I chose this cottage to enjoy the whole experience of this historical town. Unfortunately, it was not as expected. Although I should have followed up on not receiving the actual address and key collection, it seems that checking all is in order with guests should be a part of the customer service. however, we drove to Bath with none of this information still trying to get hold of the owner. Fortunately we did make contact after a lot of stress. Insufficient, well used towels and a mattress that was level with the bed when someone sat on it was the reward after a long day of sightseeing. On the positive side, the cottage was clean and the kitchen well equipped. Bath is beautiful, but we have decided to revert back to B & Bs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your short break at our lovely cottage, however we are obviously very disappointed with your assessment of your stay. We completely understand that not having the access information until the day you arrived is not acceptable and for this we once more offer our sincere apologies. As you know, I was only aware of the problem on the morning of your arrival and I phoned you immediately with the missing details and of course apologised. As explained on the phone, there is an automated system in place which protects this information for security purposes but you should have been able to access it seven days in advance. Welcome emails are also sent automatically with links to the mobile app which keeps this information more easily available on your phone during your stay. I had received notification by email of each stage as usual so was unaware that you had not received anything or been unable to download our information. No system is infallible however and we are looking at ways to make the system clearer to our guests. We are very pleased that you found the cottage clean and well equipped. It is our own much loved home from home and of course we hope to meet all our guests’ expectations too. We use Egyptian cotton sheets on the beds and have a large stock of generous sized thick bath sheets and towels which we renew each year. Had we known you needed more towels our housekeeper would have been more than happy to pop some down to you. Given the age and design of our cottage, we are restricted in our options for beds and cannot access the room with a deep mattress or divan system. We purchased our sprung mattresses and bed frames less than two years ago and personally find them to be very comfortable but of course we all have different preferences. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Bath however and understand that you may feel bed and breakfast is more suited to your own personal needs.

very happy

  • 5 of 5

Thanks very much - we were very comfortable, had everything we needed and the whole experience of booking, organising, checking in and out was very straightforward. The cottage was both cosy abd practical, ideal location out of the hassle and bustle of town but close enough to dive back to change and freshen up for the evening, bus and taxi both being quick, easy and cheap. We had a great stay.

Klein aber fein

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem kleinen Cottage sehr wohl gefühlt, die Lage war für Ausflüge ideal, der nette Pub in der Nähe hat für leibliches Wohl gesorgt und das kleine Esszimmer war unser Lieblingsraum. Bei schönem Wetter konnte man auch nett im winzigen Garten sitzen.

Bathford village is filled with beautiful Bath stone buildings and worth exploring. We have a wonderful community shop and cafe selling delicious food and we can recommend taking a steak and kidney pie home for dinner....

There are numerous walks nearby and it is possible to walk into Bath via the canal towpath.

Bath offers a wealth of cultural sites and activities and is renowned for its excellent selection of unique shops and restauants. It has many events throughout the year, the most anticipated being its wonderful Christmas market. Check out the Bath website as there is something on all year round.

The surrounding countryside is stunning and there are many pretty little towns and villages on the doorstep with a great choice of pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

We enjoy walking through the beautiful parkland in Corsham Court and the stunning national arboretum at Westonbirt just outside Tetbury. Particularly gorgeous in spring for the blossum and autumn for the flaming maples. We also love Bradford on Avon for strolling along the canal or sitting at one of the cafes watching the boats go by. Market day at Wells is a favourite too.

The victorian Green Park Station is now a brilliant indoor market venue with weekly farmers markets each Saturday and a variety of vintage, designer, antique and modern treasures to browse through each Sunday.

We hope you enjoy Bath as much as we do.
