“A beautiful and well located house which helped make our weekend perfect !!”

From my first enquiry, to the booking, to the Pre arrival arrangements, to leaving, Sam the owner was courteous, flexible and helpful!
I booked the beautiful Benson Cottage for my friend's hen weekend during May bank holiday and it was just perfect! We had 8 staying on the first night and it ended up being 10 on the second night on the large sofabed and space was not an issue. Infact the layout of the house is perfect so not to all feel on top of each other!
The owners have thought of absolutely everything, and the quirky little extras ,like having house slippers!
The location is also perfect... 10 mins walk to Bath Spa and minutes from some of the popular shops, bars and clubs.... That was particularly nice at 2am !!
The car parking really wasn't an issue either for the girls who drove... We took the train and although its probably a ten minute walk. We took a cab on arrival because of luggage, which cost just over £5.
This option is so much better than staying in Hotel rooms!
All being busy working mums, we were able to chill out in the morning, make cups of tea, then go back to bed because the beds are the cosiest EVER, then make more cups of tea, then all get together round the kitchen table for breakfast!
All in all, a fab weekend by everyone and would definitely go back because it just was long enough :-)

We had a lovely relaxing stay in Benson Cottage right in Bath's town center. Such a comfortable and beautifully decorated place. Thoughtfully set up, comfortable beds, spotlessly clean. Wonderful helpful and friendly owners. Thank you Sam and Rachel for a great stay!

Really lovely cottage, perfectly positioned in Bath. Incredibly comfortable beds, and such thoughtful touches from the owners (including wine, bread, tea, milk on arrival). We loved our stay; thank you Sam and Rachel.

Thank you so much to Sam, the owner, who ensured our stay exceeded our (already pretty high) expectations!

The house was very tastefully decorated, with a really special attention to detail. Superbly equipped and a lot of thought has gone into what guests could ever possibly want. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. An incredible house and very convenient for the centre of Bath.

AMAZING place....I really couldn't fault it and we can't wait to come back!!
