We love living in the city of Bath, it has everything you could wish for from a city, theatre, great shops, restaurants and an amazing history along with fantastic architecture. Yet, only a 5 minute drive to outstanding countryside.
Free and secure parking, so you can leave your car and wander into the city. A pretty patio area to enjoy that chilled glass of wine on a summers evening.
Kevin and I had a wonderful time staying at the cottage whilst performing at the theatre in Bath. It was a little home away from home, clean and cosy! Hope to come stay again! Lots of love Camilla Dallerup and Kevin Sacre xx
This was a perfect base for our weekend exploring Bath. The cottage is very small, but cosy and well equipped. It is within walking distance of Bath centre and we enjoyed a nice scenic walk in to town. There was a Tesco express 2 minutes down the road which was very handy. The hosts were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome.
The cottage is small but adequate and the layout is abit strange with the toilet being upstairs via the bedroom, and the shower room via the lounge/kitchen, if sharing with non family members this can be awkward, hence why not many pictures. My husband is over 6 foot and he found the bedroom in the eves not good for his head and spriral staircase tricky. It is further than a 10 minute walk to town, I'd say 20-30mins, but its a pleasant walk downhill.
This clean picturesque cottage was our home for the month of August and it was the perfect location for us to explore both the city and the surrounding countryside.
Information was available for us to plan our adventures.
Our hosts Chris and Louise made us welcome and offered any help we needed to make our stay pleasant. The circular staircase to the loft/bedroom area could be a little tough for less mobile guests.
Good grocery shopping is a twenty minute walk away - with a bus ride back!
There are good restaurants aplenty that will suit all tastes. Jamie's Italian was fun and good food. Lunch in the Pump Room is a must.
The race course gave us a chance to watch and bet with some success.
We would without a doubt, recommend this rental property to our friends.
