Unlike the previous review, we had a fantastic time & all our contact with the owner was positive. He was so lovely, giving us eggs from the chickens & telling us about events in the vicinity for the Jubilee.
We stayed in the Stables. We were a party of five - two couples & our daughter, so having the separated bedrooms was brilliant, we all had our own space, yet the communal space was big enough for us all, would have liked an extra easy chair, but that was such a small thing, I hardly like to mention it.
The finish in the cottage is fabulous, as was the provision of utensils, crockery etc. There is such a feeling of luxury in all that was provided - fluffy towels worthy of the best hotel, lovely individual soaps, eggs, bread, milk, tea, coffee & biscuits available on arrival, which was fantastic & meant we could have a break before finding the shop!
Would recommend going to Bathampton Mill for a meal & walking into Bath along the tow path, then getting the boat back - beautiful!
I rarely want to return to any cottage, but I would certainly do so in this case!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Selection of attractive holiday cottages have been carefully renovated from former barns, and have kept many of their original features including exposed stonework and beams. The small group of cottages range from a 1 bed (honeymoon suite) to a 5 bed (for 10 people). They enjoy a perfect location on the banks of the River Avon, and on the edge of the picturesque village of Bathampton, which is just 2 miles from the centre of Bath. ... more less
