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.

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.
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.
We (three good friends) used this pretty Bathford cottage as a base to enjoy nearby Bath for our annual Christmas shopping trip. We found it to be perfect for what we needed. Very small but perfectly formed, it oozed charm. We made full use of the kitchen and found it to be perfectly stocked and in working order. The log burner was a welcome addition after a long days Christmas shopping at the Christmas Markets and the beds comfy. The property is a short taxi/Uber ride away from the centre. We will definitely consider using this property again next year.
In a great location close to Bath in a lovely village. Can highly recommend the local pub, great food, but huge portions! Easy access to Bath and surrounding areas. Comfortable and well equipped cottage.
Entering the cottage by the kitchen door was the only way in as the front door was chained from the inside. Kitchen door needed repairing and was promptly seen to. V responsive owner. No washing machine. Details wanting, eg no toiletries in shower, some glassware, tea lights not replaced, no plastic bag in bathroom bin. Very small place indeed.
We have just spent 4 lovely days in this cosy well equipped cottage. The cottage is spotless and the beds are sooooo comfy we all slept like babies. Bath town centre is 5mins by car. Would definitely recommend this pretty cottage. Thank you Fiona it's a credit to you Di & Family Lancashire
Very impressed, we made a very last minute booking, despite this the owner was very helpful and quick to get things confirmed.
The stay itself was lovely, The cottage is well equipped, yet very cosy, and well located just on the outskirts of bath, making an ideal base for our short stay for day trips to local (ish) attractions like Glastonbury Tor and the wookey hole.
T.v. Worked just fine (not that it's really an essential part of our holiday, but I'd seen others mention it), and my daughter was very happy with her double bed! And the shower was excellent! Other than that, everything was was clean, and tidy, and had a modern feel to it. The front door had a very stiff lock, though the side door worked just fine and is about to steps away from it, and seemed more practical to use anyway, as you enter the kitchen area this way.
Overall, really lovely stay and would recommend it!
The cottage is located in a busy, steep street, halfway between the bus stop and the village shop. NIce village, great walks. You can walk to Bath along the canal. A lot of tourist information in the cottage, OK.
The cottage is cosy and nicely furnished but to expensive for the basic comfort. The tiny bathroom, kitchen to far from the dining room. Steps between every room also upstairs. You have to watch your steps all the time. My husband fell badly when his sock got stuck on a protruding screw.
The cottage was clean, except for the kitchen: sticky cooking grease film on the worktop and floor. Well equipped kitchen, but not enough dish washer tablets. not enough kitchen towels etc. We had to do with one kitchen towel and one dish cloth for 9 days. No dish brush, no scourer.
Same for the bath towels, one set for 9 days.
We couldn't unlock the front door from the outside and couldn't lock the kitchen door from the inside. Quite a hassle every night.
No fresh milk when we arrived.
There was a serious leak in the living room. Water dropping from the sealing on the television set. We reported it to the owner, but nothing has been done while we where staying there. We had to remove the TV set to another spot and put towels by every rain shower.
We would not recommend this property for visiting Bath. It takes to long by bus, but the property is convenient for exploring the region by car.
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.
