“Brilliant quirky cottage for a city break”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent a few nights in benson cottage for a hen party and it was brilliant and the owners/manager were very helpful. The cottage is located within 5-10 minutes walk from everywhere including the spa, shops and clubs. Would definitely recommend for a holiday cottage for a hen party or a family break.

“Beautiful central girly crash pad”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed at the cottage for 2 nights in January for a hen so in a group of 8 girls.

I arrived first and retrieved the key from the key safe outside the front and managed to get inside with not too much issue.

The cottage is set across 3 floors, main bathroom and bedroom is basement, kitchen and lounge on /round fl, and 2 adjoining bedrooms with en-suite shower room upstairs.

The owner popped round after a while with some handy info.

The house is decorated in an mixed lovely style- modern bathroom, country style kitchen, eclectic bright lounge. Very well finished and had everything we needed and more. There was even a welcome food gift including wines, bread, jam, etc upon arrival and slippers. Wi-fi included also.

The house is located well for centre of Bath, near bars, restaurants, shops, etc. Its up a hill in Bath and some cars and people struggled a little with steepness but wasn't too bad. Parking was a main issue as nearest place was quite far and meant lots of lugging bags in pouring rain and moving cars based on time of day.

Very comfortable stay by all and great for reunions or classy hen-do's. There's no double beds but singles may be able to push some together.

“Perfect stay for a hen-do weekend!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

I recently stayed at Benson Cottage for a friends hen-do and it was absolutely perfect, the location is amazing, close enough to the centre to walk everywhere but down a quiet and peaceful lane. The kitchen and living room areas are really relaxing and great for groups, the beds are really comfy. All of the little touches... bread and wine waiting for us, complimentary slippers and toiletries, and the well stocked kitchen, made it feel really homely and welcoming. Thank you very much!

“Brilliant Benson!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at Benson Cottage for my hen weekend and it was just perfect! Sam was very welcoming and there were welcome gifts all around (wine/bread/milk). The house is very well equiped, even shower gel was provided. The cottage is very homely (there are slippers for everyone too), if I needed a place to stay in Bath I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Sam :-)

Rented for a hen do and everyone loved the property, its a beautiful house and perfect for large groups. Also the location is brilliant, very central but quiet, we walked everywhere and it saved a lot of organisation not having to get taxis all the time.

I booked Benson cottage for my friend's hen do. The cottage was perfect. It was around a 10 minute walk from bars and restaurants, a little longer if in heels!! There is a real feeling of space created by the 3 floors. The kitchen is a real plus. Overall- excellent.
