Batheaston, Bath, Somerset, England
The Saltings is a four star rated Grade II listed one bedroom cottage with an interesting history dating back to the 16th century. Up to around 100 years ago it was used as a place to salt the meat for what was then a butcher's shop on the high street, part of the same building.

The conversion to a high quality holiday let was completed in 2011 by the owners, John and Jane Moon.

As well as retaining as many of the original period features of the property as possible, John and Jane have enhanced the building's character through careful use of stone and wood to create a unique and very comfortable, character property, ideal for couples looking for a romantic or relaxing break or a single person seeking a peaceful haven.

The secure car parking space in front of the cottage is just one of the features which makes the Saltings high...

The Saltings provided an excellent base for our visit. In a quiet, spot with safe, off road parking and superb travel links to the centre of Bath. A beautiful city but not so good for driving in. So Batheaston was perfect. With a bus from the front door into the City Centre every 15 minutes - up to almost midnight...

Thanks for the review Len and pleased you enjoyed your stay. We bought a new can opener and corkscrew on the day you left. Not sure where the opener disappeared to as there has always been one there. The heater control is more of a mystery as it is electronic with no moving parts so not sure what you were...

There's not much in Batheaston but we liked it - friendly, very convenient for other, perhaps more interesting places, and a quiet, comfortable setting. The only real issue was the overpowering heat - plastic bags of shopping melted when you put them down on the underfloor heating for a moment (I am exaggerating - but it was hot!) But I'd...

Management response:

Thanks for the review Margery, though we have to say that we and dozens of our previous guests find there is a tremendous amount to do in Batheaston. Admittedly, the walking, boating, sightseeing and many other things we give you ideas about in our guide, are somewhat weather dependent and a cold January is not the perfect time of year...

Getting around
There is a bus stop right outside the courtyard, on the High Street. That makes it so easy to come and go into the City, with a journey time of about ten minutes . No worries about parking. Or you may take a leisurely walk into the City along the tow path. Or between March and October, enjoy the river boat, with a beautiful trip into the heart of the City. The boat station is just a few minutes walk from the courtyard.
