What a nice surprise to read your review - thank you. We are so glad that you enjoyed the cottage and the area and it is so nice to hear that the shower room is a success! We thought it best to offer the choice of a leisurely bath or a super shower and we hope we have made the best use of the former 3rd bedroom! We are so lucky to have a good pub on the doorstep and many visitors comment on how good the service is there - we hope you made use of the Athelhampton membership card to get your discount. Mind you, there are so many great pubs in the vicinity - you'll have to come back again!!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review and for passing on your comments about the cottage, the local pub and the area generally. We created the new shower room from the third bedroom and when planning it we thought that three toilets in a 2 bedroom house was perhaps unnecessary and decided, on balance, that guests might prefer to have a nice spacious room instead. It is good to hear that you thought the cottage well equipped and I certainly try to keep up with the Tourist information Office with regard to what is available to do in the area!
