Well equiped, warm and cosy, home from home.

David was very helpful but did not intrude on our stay. The chapel proved to be in a brilliant position for us to support our new grandson's parents in Bristol and still be close to Bath, a city we both love.

Five Star Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely nothing is wanting in The School House. Everything is first class - really 'home from home' and no expense had been spared to fit this cottage out with quality fittings and equipment. I would have no hesitation about returning - it is exactly 30 minutes from Bristol airport and close to lovely Bath. It's warm and very comfortable. And, you don't have to clean the place when you leave, which, I think is a bonus when you're on holiday; cleaning is what you want to get away from. Thank you so much.

Ebenezer Chapel Review

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful place to stay. Perfect for two or three groups/families as you can all have your own space but still be all together. A fantastic location with great amenities close by and great access to Bristol and Bath. I can't recommend it enough!

Wunderbares Haus....

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 13 Tage im old schoolhouse. Wunderschön eingerichtet. Alles da was man braucht. Vermieter sehr nett und hilfsbereit.Die Lage um Ausflüge zu machen ist optimal. Bath,Bristol,Oxford,Wells,Bradford on Avon. ... es gibt so viele Möglichkeiten. Wir waren mit unseren Jungs (12 und 15)auch Karte fahren, Klettern und haben Laser quest gespielt. Für jeden Geschmack ist etwas dabei. Der Pub nebenan ist sehr gemütlich und man kommt schnell in Kontakt. Wir haben den Urlaub sehr genossen und kommen gerne wieder.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im April 2009 drei Tage "The School House" mit vier Personen gemietet und uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Haus ist gemütlich und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, die Eigentümer sehr zuvorkommend.Die Städte Bath und Bristol liegen ganz in der Nähe, aber auch für einen Ausflug nach Tintern Abbey in Wales, oder zu den Kathedralen von Wells oder Salisbury ist dieser Standort sehr gut geeignet.

The location of the chapel make it a great base to explore all the surrounding areas.

The roman city of Bath has been designated as a World Heritage Site, with many fascinating historical sites to be seen, some dating back as far as the first century. The world famous roman baths are not one to be missed. As Well as its history Bath has an abundance of designer shops and boutiques, with a wide and varied choice of restaurants, bistros and pubs. Bath city centre is just a 15 minute drive from the chapel.

Heading in the other direction for just 20 minutes will bring you to the city centre of the prosperous Bristol. Bristol is bustling with arts, culture, adventure, sports and attractions so you'll never run out of things to do. With the brand new £500 million shopping complex 'Cabot Circus', makes Bristol a fantastic place to visit.

Along with Bath and Bristol there are some fantastic day trips to be had, with a another world heritage site 'StoneHenge' being just an hour drive away.

Other Activities: Clay Pigeon Shooting
