“Perfect spot for visiting Bath area”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We were very comfortable with the accommodation of Malthouse No. 3. It had everything we needed for a two week stay. Having such a well equipped kitchen meant we could plan to eat in rather than always look for good restaurants. Our own washer and drier also made it very convenient for longer stays. The surrounding countryside provided wonderful walks and the small village with newsagent, convenience store, post office, take away restaurant and pubs was also handy. The best part was the bus stop at the top of the lane with frequent service into Bath and the central bus station for onward journeys. Housekeeping service is very good and the owners do everything possible to make the stay enjoyable. We are glad we found this spot for our next visit to Bath..

Private secure car parking. Bus stop less than 1 min walk away. Best way to access into Bath.Would recommend a visit to Bradford on avon just 6 miles away. Cycling along canal paths, walking in park, art and craft studios, 14th century tea rooms.
Cheddar Gorge must be seen.
Loved Somerset, would return again to explore more of the county.

“A real find -- a very convenient, very comfortable place to stay when visiting the Bath area”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The Malthouse cottage we rented for three nights turned out to be perfect for our needs. The bus stop for taking the bus into Bath is at the end of the laneway leading to the private, gated parking. The buses run very frequently right into the city centre and the trip takes about 10 minutes.

The unit itself was fabulous -- excellent wifi, spotlessly clean, and all the appliances you could ask for -- a washer/dryer and a dishwasher are included. The water was hot and you can control the heating in the unit. The malthouses cottages are located in a very quiet laneway well off the main road.

Batheaston itself has a couple of shops where you can pick up food and other supplies, but there is a Sainsbury's right at the bus stop in Bath opposite the train station where you can catch the bus for the return journey. The thoughtful owners also left a few essentials in the fridge which can come in handy if you arrive late in the day.

The owners were also a pleasure to deal with and we hope to return for a longer stay since the location is fantastic for travel all around the Bath area.

“Great stay in a great place”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Stayed in this great place for a visit to friends in the neigbourhood en visiting Bath, the Cotswolds and Oxford.
The Malthouse is a historic place with a modern touch.
The modernisation is subtle and fits great. to the old building especially by the change of the livingroom and kitchen to the upper floor instead of the bedrooms.
When you come into the house you directly feel at home.
The Malthouse is a great starting point for discovering great places in Wiltshire, the Cotswold and even the southern part of Wales.

“A little bit special”
Reviewed June 19, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We were in Bath for a mixture of business and pleasure so just really wanted a base for a few days. What we got was a delightful little cottage/apartment that had been thoughtfully converted from an old brewery malthouse. The open plan lounge / kitchen had everything we needed - including free WiFi (which seems to be a must have these days). With a pub, post office and a chippy just down the road and central Bath just a few minutes away it was ideally situated. Gated access and reserved parking made us feel a bit VIP so that was good. Only thing to add (my wife's idea) would be a safety gate of some sort at the top of the stairs (it's beds & bathrooms on the ground floor and lounge/kitchen on the first floor) we had our 3 yr old grand daughter visit and we were a bit nervous about her running round so we moved a chair to block the top of the stairs.
But overall it was a lovely cottage and there was a welcome pack with all you would need for a cuppa / peice of toast & butter and even finish it off with the complimentary bottle decent red wine.

We have stayed twice at the Malthouse and would highly recommend it to anyone. It is immaculately kept and there is a welcome pack which is much appreciated after a long journey. The location is just superb; you can take a scenic walk into Bath along the canal as well as visit some lovely pubs on the way. The bus also stops just outside so it is very convenient for all, whether you are looking for country walks or an excellent shop! You have your own small garden with tables and chairs and your own private parking space. We have stayed there when visiting Badminton Horse Trials, and the exquisite Lucknam Park is a short drive away. This really is an idyllic place to stay, it has all the comforts of home as well as a little touch of luxury.
