We booked this cottage in March 2017 and loved it so much that we returned again in November 2017...and we've just booked for November 2018 too!
We'd never been to Bath before so I found this cottage through internet searches. The cottage is exactly as pictured, the owners are so friendly and accommodating, the information in the cottage about walks, places to eat, supermarkets, local attractions etc is really thorough and has everything you could need - but the owner is on hand if you have any other questions.
The cottage itself is of high quality with lots of attention to detail, immaculately maintained and cleaned. The lounge is comfortable and great for nights-in with a big TV, all the on demand channels and DVD player (note it's not a blu ray player).
The kitchen is great for cooking, very well equipped and with all the essentials such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, tea towels etc. There was also milk in the fridge ready for our arrival.
The location is lovely and quiet. It's a quaint village with countryside walks, good pubs and cafes on the doorstep. It's also an easy drive into Bath, which is a beautiful city - Bath spa is well worth a visit!
Overall, I couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough, I love my holidays and having stayed in many different places, this cottage exceeded my expectations. I’ll definitely be a loyal guest for some time to come!
We had a very relaxing three nights in Fig Cottage this week. It's a lovely property, very tastefully decorated and furnished and is warm and cosy, especially the bed which we had trouble leaving! An ideal location for walking and cycling or just chilling out. Nice pubs very nearby, a local convenience store which stocked everything we needed and takeaways in nearby Trowbridge which deliver to Holt. All in all a very pleasant stay. Would definitely recommend.
Fig Cottage ticks all the boxes, stylish decor, super clean, warm, comfortable, well equipped with dishwasher and washer/dryer. It's tucked away in a quiet backwater of the village around the back of a National Trust garden, in the grounds of the owners' house. It makes an ideal base for exploring - lots to see and do in the local area.We particularly appreciated the secure storage for the bikes and the friendly welcome of the owners. A great minibreak.
Although tucked away in a very quiet position, it is within easy walking distance of pubs and a shop. The cottage was equipped with everything we required (and more). Everything was very clean and comfortable. The thoughtful extras, such as a folder full of local information, were much appreciated. Our only suggestion would be a map of how to find the cottage after arriving in Holt - for those of us who are navigationally challenged and don't know there are two churches!
Sophie was extremely welcoming, without being intrusive. We felt that if we needed anything or wanted information she would do her best to help.
A secluded location in the grounds of the owner's home. Very peaceful.The cottage was first class with everything you need. Holt is is in easy reach of Trowbridge, Bath and of course Bradford on Avon. Lots of National Trust properties nearby with The Courts Garden just next door.
Additional words would be redundant after the title of this review..!! Our hosts were exceptional in their warmth and hospitality.
