The West Country region
If you've never been to the West Country, you're in for a treat. With its beautiful countryside, charming villages, rich history and its unique culture (from Jane Austen to Glastonbury!), there truly is something for everyone.
Weston Village makes an excellent base for exploring not only the beautiful city of Bath, but the wider delights of the West Country and, if you are a keen walker, it is located directly on the Cotswold Way with its wonderful countryside, picturesque villages and rich history.
Nestled centrally within this region, Bath makes the perfect base from which to explore this area. The historical sites of Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, and Wells Cathedral are all within easy reach, as are the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, Cheddar Gorge and the Olde Worlde Cotswold Villages of Lacock and Castle Combe, for a real taste of the English Countryside .
There is so much to do in Bath;
Why not start with a bit of culture? A visit the world-famous Roman Baths and sample the medicinal spa water, and if this leaves a peculiar taste in your mouth, the magnificent cream teas served in the elegant Pump Rooms will soon remedy this! This can then be walked off on a tour through the awesome Bath Abbey, where a climb up its wondrous tower will reward you with fantastic panoramic views of the city, including the award-winning Bath Thermae Spa. But before taking a plunge into its famous open-roof hot-bath or fragrant steam-rooms, why not take the opportunity to visit one of the many museums on offer including the Jane Austen Centre, Holburne and Herschel Museums.
Bath is well known for its calendar of festivals including the Literature Festival, Music Festival, Taste of Bath, Jane Austen Festival, Mozartfest, the Cider Festival and the Christmas market. The Theatre Royal is host to many plays prior to their run in London’s West End.
If shopping is your vice, the newly opened Southgate Centre is home to many plush names and complements the more unique boutiques and independent stores to be found in the arcades and lanes distinct to Georgian Bath.
Foodies will be spoiled for choice with the many eateries on offer, from romantic side-street bistros to the ever popular Jamie Oliver’s, you need to loosen your belt by the time you leave.
The beautiful Cotswold Way, recently designated a National Trail in recognition of its unique qualities, provides an alternative to the bustle of the city centre, with many beautiful old churches and friendly pubs along the way.
Attractions further afield include Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury, Cheddar gorge, the Stunning Westonbirt Arboretum and the fabulous Longleat Park (Home to the Marquis of Bath), as well as many charming Cotswold Villages such as Lacock (famous for the Harry Potter films, amongst others) and Castle Combe.
And if shopping really is your thing, Cabot Circus in Bristol is only a short trip away ………

"Thank you Stuart and Rachel for an amazing stay in Bath!"
My husband, daughter (16 months) and I stayed at the Apple House for a bit over a month during Aug-Sept 2012.
Pros of the house: 1) The house, even though not very big, is very well planned. Despite the fact that there is no door separating the bedroom from the rest of the house (which is located upstairs together with the bathroom, and the living-room with the kitchenette - downstairs), my husband and I were able to talk and cook dinners downstairs, while our daughter was fast asleep upstairs. 2) The furniture is of high quality - modern, new - the type that I would want to have myself, in my own house. 3) Amazingly powerful shower. 4) Comfortable beds, with good quality mattresses, and very luxurious, big bath towels. 5) The house is located right next to the Cotswolds Way walk, which you'll be rewarded with plenty of breathtakingly beautiful views once you're up on the hill. 6) Last, but not least, this family is just unbelievably friendly, helpful and kind! You'll receive all kinds of helpful information and be given all sorts of tips of where to go in and around Bath.
Cons of the house (all minor): 1) The house is located ca. 30-40 minutes walk from the center of Bath. The bus stop is literally on the door step, but be prepared to pay more than £4 for a day pass ticket per adult (babies free). 2) The path leading to the house is of pebbles, which is not a big deal when you don't have a stroller, but can be a bit heavy, although manageable, if you do - requires dragging or lifting, rather than pushing. 3) No freezer. 4) The flat top stove didn't work well when you'd spill liquid (or it would boil over). It would stop cooking and showed an 'error' message, that would disappear within a few minutes, but in the meantime, no more heat. 5) The neighbors' dogs were barking pretty much every time my daughter and I were out and about. They can't get to you as there is a fence, but the noise from the noisy chihuahua ("Coco") is sometimes overwhelming.
All in all, though, the above points were relatively minor. It was a very good house to stay in, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Bath. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

"Very cute and comfortable cottage in a beautiful historical city"
The cottage is gorgeous, everything is taken care in great detail. The hosts are extremely friendly and have thought of every detail to make your stay in Apple House very nice. The house is within the property of the owners but privacy and independence are guaranteed.

"A fabulous find - highly recommended."
What a find - delightful, compact holiday rental, owned by a fantastic family. Stuart and Rachel were extremely friendly and tried to make our stay a great holiday. The house was pristine and provided all we would need for our week in Bath. We enjoyed the walk into town through Royal Victoria Park (about 35 mins) and that the local shops were handy too. As a young family, Bath had lots to offer us so we didn't need the car every day, therefore, great to have somewhere to park the car. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

"Wonderful place to stay"
We had a very nice 2 weeks here. Apple house is behind the main house and new with new furniture and appliances, all spotlessly clean. The double bed is small if you are used to a queen or bigger, but not really an issue. We appreciated the welcome package and rapidly found that this place if very close to the cotswold way - some wonderful walking. Our hosts were charming and managed the distance and privacy requirements with sensitivity!

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that allows you good quality accommodation, a kitchen, seperate living room / bedroom close to the centre of Bath then this is for you. Beats the usual hotels!

"Everything I hoped it would be."
My daughter had to be in Bath for a long weekend to attend a birthday celebration and meet a new addition to our extended family. We arrived very late but the Kotchies gave us a warm welcome with cups of tea on arrival. Apple House is immaculate, well kitted out and very cosy, with particularly comfortable beds. Everything seems new, from the kitchen to the towels. It's a very quiet spot, and this was a boon for me as I have sleep issues - no problem at Apple cottage. There is good access to Bath city via a pleasant walk through some of Bath's best housing streets and parks. A lovely place which we have already arranged to use again this year as we fell in love with Bath. The Kotchies are a charming young couple, enthusiastic about their city and keen to help you enjoy it. Five Stars!

"Small but perfectly formed....and great value for money!"
We stayed at the Apple House during an extended long weekend stay in Bath and certainly struck gold in finding this bargain accomodation in a typically expensive tourist location.
Although the Apple House looks a little snug the ample (not apple) room across the two floors to spread out for a few days and not feel confined to a hotel room was a real bonus, as well as enjoying the well equipped furnishings - especially that of a very good shower and decent widescreen TV.
The upstairs of this little detached gem does provide a little challenge with regards to ceiling heights to the edges of the room, but this is just a tiny issue that can be easily forgotton for all the plus points.
The accomodation was spotless but still homely and the welcome from Stuart and Rachael was very polite and friendly. Although we did not need anything from them over our break as everything was catered for in the Apple House our paths did cross on a couple of occasions and enjoyed a couple of pre-dinner drinks in the garden with them.
Admittedly the 30 minute walk into the town centre may put a couple of potential punters off, however the route takes you through the beautiful Victoria Park and if planned correctly can also include both the Royal Cresent and Circus - so I would definately recommend walking rather than driving into the centre.
Talking about parking, the fact that the Apple House also provided us some off street parking was another plus point compared to many of the hotels we considered in town, and it only added to the great value for money that booking this accomnodation offered.
Next time we visit Bath we will be sure to book the Apple House.

"Lovely welcome, clean property with modern kitchen and shower room."
We were made to feel extremely welcome at The Apple House the moment we arrived, being greeted with welcoming smiles and some basic necessities & additional luxuries such as bread, milk, butter, cake and wine. The towels provided were noteworthy - very white, fluffy and indulgent to use. The mattresses were extremely comfy and all of the property was very clean and tidy.
Be careful of the sloping room in the bedroom - we both hit our heads a couple of times!

We had a most enjoyable few weeks at the Apple House and the hosts could not have
more amenable in every way.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property without reservation to

"A hidden gem in a great part of Bath run by friendly and helpful couple"
20 minutes walk from the centre of Bath, Apple house provided us with really comfortable accomodation for the month that we were there. New build, clean, all the mod-cons (apart from a washing machine) - it really felt to us that we were staying in a home from home. Great for a couple anh highly recommended.
