We really enjoyed our three nights in these characterful properties: thick stone walls, exposed wooden beams, old fireplaces, steps, stairs, crannies, low doors, evidence of previous uses.
For us they are in the perfect location surrounded by countryside but with a pavement all the way into town so we enjoyed the benefits of both town and country. Our three generation party comprised seven adults and six children. The children had a great time exploring the house and grounds and we all had a great day out on the train to Bath.
The owners left comprehensive guides to everything in the house: something that is too often neglected in other properties. The owners met us made sure we knew where everything was and then left us in peace with an invitation to contact them if we needed any help. Perfect.
Although there were only thirteen of us (some of our party couldn’t make it) the two properties could comfortably accommodate at least four more.
Loved it and recommend it for a quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle of life.
