This cottage is absolutely lovely. We are a group of women in our late 20's and we all fell in love with the cottage. It's spacious, clean and had everything you could want! Many of us said we would love it to be our home, that's how lovely it is. Its in a perfect location too, right on the canal, there's shops, pubs, and you can rent boats/canoes or go on barge trips literally right on the doorstep. Amazing! Would 100% recommend to all my friends and family.

On arriving to lock Quay cottage with 7 other female friends it was an instant wow for all ! This from 8 females all married with children must be a first ! (that takes some seriously high standards) Every fine detail has been thought out and everything in the cottage is of top quality. Location is perfect again for everything, lots of great places to eat beautiful walks by the canal and Bath is just a short 10min train ride away. Train station is only a 5min walk away ! We all loved this place ! The only negative i could say is that it is so comfortable and homely....we found it hard to get out !!!!!

“A lovely cottage with all amenities in a fabulous location”
Reviewed August 2, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

person found this review helpful

This is a gorgeous cottage full of character in a perfect location. The kitchen and reception rooms are large and well-equipped. The bedrooms are comfortable and cosy. There is a patio garden with plenty of space for al fresco eating. The owners have generously left a huge choice of toys, dvds and books for the use of guests. They also provide a welcome basket and all the basics such as dishwasher tablets. There are lovely canal-side pubs and cafes on the doorstep. The town centre is a scenic walk away along the canal. We stayed there for a week and had a wonderful time.

This is a comfortable and well equipped cottage in a lovely area. It was more than big enough for our party of 7 - the pictures do not do it justice. The owner left us a much appreciated welcome basket and we had everything we needed. The station is a short walk away and Bath and its sights easily accessible from there. We enjoyed many of the local pubs and restaurants. It was a great place to stay with our young children and would definitely recommend it to others.
