We recently returned from a weekend at Dolphin House Batheaston, Near Bath. We went for my birthday as we have done 4 times previously. The owners Jane and George have always been very welcoming, helpful, and knowledgable about the area- one of the reasons we keep going back. The house which is full of character, is a Georgian Grade II listed building. The garden is lovely and has a couple of interesting and secluded parts at the bottom. We usually have our breakfast out on the terrace-which is a very substantial continental. We stay in The Jane Austen Suite which has it's own lounge next to the bedroom and the bathroom is upstairs. The owner is a painter and displays some of her work in the rooms. There is another room downstairs which looks lovely and has a separate bathroom-but we are usually travelling onwards into Cornwall afterwards so need the extra room the suite provides. The village has some interesting buildings and an old pub with decked beer garden. To get into Bath we choose to walk 10-15 minutes down to Bathampton Mill in the mornings to catch the boat to Pultenay Bridge in the centre of Bath(£3.50 single) although you can walk along the canal (1 hr 15 mins) or take the bus 20 mins. Obviously there is plenty to do in Bath but the Bathampton Mill and The George both are good restaurants near Batheaston. I would recommend Dolphin House as it is in such a fantastic location-near Bath but also has the village feel.
