    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...

    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...

My husband and myself stayed at The Saltings for three nights and it was just perfect. The cottage is so cosy and spotlessly clean. The welcome pack was so thoughtful. The location is brilliant - we walked into the city most days and got a bus back in the evenings. The bus stop is directly outside. The directions we were... more

Management response:

Thanks Gill. We can't expect better than perfect so thanks for such kind comments. We hope to see you again soon. more

This is a beautiful, well maintained, well equipped cottage. Originally the location put us off, however I'm glad we went ahead and booked here as getting to the centre of Bath couldn't have been easier, the bus stop is located right outside the courtyard and buying a day pass meant we could go in and out of town as often... more

Management response:

Thanks Lauren and so pleased you found the location suited you. This tends to be what happens. Initially people want to be very close to Bath centre but subsequently find our location just as convenient. Yes, the day pass is very good value and the real time digital display on the bus stop is great too, we think. Hope to... more

This was exactly the english accommodation we wanted to experience, what a great little cottage right in the heart of a lovely little town. Welcomed with some food basics and a directory showing us everything else (a local map could be included). The Bathampton Mill is only about a 10 min walk and has the best meals, we ate both... more

Management response:

Thanks Bruce. Glad you found what you were looking for, which is good for us too. We will look at preparing a local map with the salient features. Thanks for the suggestion, appreciated. more
