Perfect, Countryside, Quiet, location
Great spot for a couple. Quiet spot with great local walks and views. Easy drive into Bath or Bristol. Cottage was clean, and well equipped. Highly recommend
Home from home...and maybe a little better? The countryside is just a few steps away!
It was a little cold as we walked in, but hey, it's January. Soon warmed up to the place and found a very helpful manual of how to do, where to visit, where to shop etc. Thus we soon mastered the fire , central heating and that sort of stuff. We couldn't help but notice a bottle of wine to greet us. Also the table was set and ready for a sit down and a cup of tea with sweet biscuits sitting in wait.The cottage overlooks a huge valley looking toward Bristol. It's a delight at night to see the twinkle of the lights in the distance because it reminds you of just how far you have escaped from the rat race.
First day it was a surprise how close Bath was! It's a bit of a trick to get parking but would suggest parking in Waitrose Car Park...but be patient as on a busy day you will face a queue to enter and it's not so cheap but better than some other city prices. Very useful to do a bit of a shop on your return to the car also. Bradford on Avon was the second day (Sunday in fact) and found it so picturesque and full of history and architecture. The pubs are quaint as is The Bridge Tea Rooms. I'd like to say it reminds me of somewhere like York or Canterbury....but in fact it's unique.
The Old Crown is a pub which is the nearest but for some reason we ended up at The Swan. After explaining that my companion and I would not be able to eat a huge Sunday roast we both ended up ordering two children's size meals. We only just made it to the end! The portions were huge! I could write more, but my now I think you are getting the idea .....
Our weekend was wonderful and if I had to score out of 10....I would give an 11.5.
Many thanks to George ( our host)for his efforts to make a weekend away great!
A beautiful, quaint hidden gem. Comfy and inviting. Easy to find.
We wanted somewhere quiet to escape the hustle and bustle for new year and this beautiful cottage delivered exactly what we wanted. I cannot recommend owl cottage enough. The whirlpool bath was relaxing on a cold evening and the fire in the lounge gave a romantic feel - all cosy and warm. We were greeted with a lovely bottle of red wine and some tasty treats. Would love to repeat next year!
Very comfortable and well equipped a pleasure to stay in.
