About the property

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 Bathford

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 cottage in pretty village

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this cottage for 3 nights with a friend. Very impressed with the cottage itself; it had a good balance between olde charm and mod cons. Spacious rooms and the separate dining room was a real plus. The local village is pretty and has a shop for any last minute supplies you may have forgotten. The Crown pub was a pleasant surprise; spacious, vibrant and a large garden at the rear for those warm, sunny days. A regular bus service makes it convenient to access the centre of Bath. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

Perfect New Year Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful - small but perfectly formed. Everything we needed was there, and Fiona ensured there was a good supply of logs to start us off on arrival. The local pub is just down the road. They provide good food, good beers and wines and the staff are very friendly. The area of Bathford is delightful. The people are so friendly. We walked to Bath on New Years Day and without exception everyone we passed said Hello or Happy New Year! For those not wanting to walk, the local buses run often to Bath, returning late at night so you don't have to worry about missing the last bus home. Also a quick mention of the village community shop/cafe - they stock everything you might need from the ordinary to the luxury items, and again - everyone is so friendly. A great find!

Slightly disappointing stay

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in Bathford for two nights whilst visiting Bath and specifically he Christmas Market.

The cottage is on a main road, but far enough back to not be too noisy. On arrival we found the cottage to clean on the surface... ie hoovered and beds made etc. However we soon started noticing quite a few cobwebs and the odd piece of litter from previous occupants. Nothing major just hadn’t been thoroughly cleaned.

We ended up sleeping in the small bedroom because the travelcot we bought couldn’t fit in there. This was quite fortunate because as soon as we sat on the double bed the wood cracked and it was unuseable! Fortunately we didn’t require it!

On the first morning when we woke up we noticed water on the kitchen floor that appeared to be coming in from the outside under the skirting.

This is a lovely located cottage and the bus was very convenient for getting into Bath; however the strange layout and overall feel of the cottage means we won’t be back. It’s quite dated (except a lovely bathroom) and needs a good lift.

Bath however is very recommended for a visit and The Crown pub in Bathford gets a thumbs up!

Petite Cottage near Bath

  • 4 of 5

Although we had a car, it was convenient to travel to Bath by bus, the stop being about 100 yards down the hill from the cottage. The bedrooms and kitchen were a good size and there was a separate dining room. The lounge, however, was quite small for three adults. All in all we had a comfortable stay and parking close to the cottage on the street was no problem. Fiona had taken some care with decorating, and the bathroom, though quite small, did not pose a problem.

We so enjoyed all the charming touches of this cottage! Our 3 night stay was pleasant and relaxing. The bed was very comfortable...the bathroom small but functional with an excellent shower. Loved all the windows and especially looking out on the front yard :-) The information in the notebook was awesome! How about a notepad of some sort....

We do have a concern about the top of the staircase...the landing being a small square with a step up to both the left and the right is a safety concern in our mind. Perhaps even a safety grip/bar in the frame on the bathroom side would help :-)

Overall, a wonderful, bright, open yet cozy place to stay. Would definitely stay again!

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.
