    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The Saltings is a four star rated Grade II listed one bedroom cottage with an interesting history dating back to the 16th century. Up to around 100 years ago it was used as a place to salt the meat for what was then a butcher's shop on the high street, part of the same building.

    The conversion to a high quality holiday let was completed in 2011 by the owners, John and Jane Moon.

    As well as retaining as many of the original period features of the property as possible, John and Jane have enhanced the building's character through careful use of stone and wood to create a unique and very comfortable, character property, ideal for couples looking for a romantic or relaxing break or a single person seeking a peaceful haven.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The open plan living, dining and kitchen area with oak and stone features combines tradition with 21st century technology including under floor heating, state of the art Smeg hob and oven, dishwasher, integrated Bosch fridge/freezer, Samsung flat screen TV and DVD player, integrated washer/dryer, sumptuous leather Chesterfield settee and small dining table.

    The spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom is a little tight for those with limited mobility but adds yet more character.

    Again, under floor heating and lots of wood and stone provide a perfect combination of tradition and luxury in the bedroom and ensuite shower room.

    A super comfortable king size bed, with Egyptian cotton bedding will guarantee you the best possible night's sleep.

    Travertine tiling adds further luxury in the...

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    We feel our rates are very reasonable for the quality of property we offer.

    Everything is included, nothing more to pay other than a £10 accidental damage premium or Sunday changeover charge, as below. We supply many other things you won't find in an average holiday let.

    A £10 premium against damage is added to all bookings and covers you for all accidental damage up to £100. Please note that for Sunday arrivals or departures, where a previous guest has already booked to arrive or leave that day, we have to charge an additional £20 to cover extra cleaning costs.

    Minimum charge is £210, (which includes the damage premium) so a mid week booking for 2 nights would be £210.

    Bookings which include or lead up to a public holiday or New Year's Eve have a minimum charge of £320, so stay three nights for best value. Public holidays are charged at weekend rates.

    25% deposit to book, with the balance payable six weeks before your stay, except for 'minimum charge' bookings wh...

    Tucked into the corner of a listed building with origins in the 16th century, The Saltings is accessed through a courtyard just off the High Street in the village of Batheaston, one of the small suburbs of the famous historic City of Bath.

    Access by road is very simple. We are about half a mile from the main roundabout intersection of the A46 onto the London Road going into Bath.

    There is a secure car parking space immediately in front of The Saltings, whilst the bus stop, with regular services to and from the City, is immediately in front of the main building on the High Street. Typical journey time by bus or car is 10 minutes.

    You can also walk or cycle, the towpath along the canal being a particularly attractive route. A really lovely way to access the City is by one of the regular c...

What a lovely cosy cottage. Refurbished to a very high standard. Perfect location for exploring the area and within easy reach of Longleat Safari Park. Wouldn't hesitate in returning in the future. more

Great location for the bus route into Bath which saves driving and dealing with the hassle of finding parking. The spiral staircase is only for the agile ones - especially in carrying the suitcases up! Deborah was very helpful in responding to our queries more

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed the Saltings. Yes the spiral stairs are quite tight, which we state in our property details. As it's a small cottsge there is no room for a conventional stair case. Most guests find it to be perfectly fine and we trust it didn't distract from your stay. more

I booked The Saltings as a suprise birthday weekend for my boyfriend. Loved the location, all so friendly in the area. The cottage is very well equipped, very snug - the oven unfortunately did not want to play. We would book to go back. Thank you more

Management response:

Hi. Glad you had a nice time with us. Sorry about the oven - it just decided to stop working while you were there, which was unfortunate for you. All fixed now but we realise it's not great when it happens to you. It was perfectly fine immediately before your stay but faults can happen anytime. Anyway, we are pleased... more
