“Perfect for exploring Bath”

Perfect place to explore Bath and beautiful countryside, right by the river Avon with views over river and magnificent countryside beyond. Bus stops right by accommodation which we used once and got the boat back from Bath to the nearby Bathampton Mill. Unfortunately weather wasn't on our side otherwise we would have walked/cycled into the centre. The accommodation itself was absolutely lovely; quiet, safe and very nicely renovated and in our opinion should be 5 star not 4. Was kept immaculate and the housekeeper Debbie was so lovely; making the workshop ready an hour early and checking to see everything was ok for us. We arrived to find a bottle of wine and other essential provisions which was so thoughtful. We would like to go back and noted there were other properties so we could go with extended family. Only point to note is that we had to turn the underfloor heating off on the second night as we were all boiling!
Overall fantastic, thank you to John & Jane.

Thanks ever so much for the comments. We too were a bit disappointed we only got a Visit Britain 4 star rating, but they use some strange criteria. Certainly everything we can control is 5 star. As you found, the house is highly insulated and has a heat recovery system, so quite often the heating is not needed, but we always put it on as some people feel the cold. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it and we hope to see you in one of our properties again. John and Jane

Nice to hear you enjoyed the Old Workshop and the Xmas market. It was really great this year - even better than before, we thought. We think it's nice to retreat to a quiet spot after the hectic bustle of Bath, so we are glad you found the same :-) Same time next year? :-)

“Excellent accommodation with a good convenient location.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

An excellent apartment with an upside down arrangement that means the lounge/ diner on the fist floor has lovely views over the valley. The two bedrooms are situated on the ground floor and are tastefully furnished; the beds are large and very comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner who also provided a generous welcome pack. The location is ideal for anyone wanting to cycle the local area with easy access to the canal, the avon river, and old railway track cycle path to Bristol, or East to Devizes and beyond.

The whole house is very clean and maintained.
The equipment is in perfect condition and modern.
Best of all are the beds, they are the most comfortable that I have never slept.
Finally, the welcome pack is very good.
