Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The cottage is a small, 1 bedroom, terraced cottage that is has been extensively and thoughtfully refurbished. It's a perfect spot for a mixture of city break and country retreat.
Being only 2.5 miles from the centre of Bath you can take advantage of all the city has to offer. But come back to a rural location with beautiful views. There are some nice walks are on the doorstep - the canal is only a couple of hundred yards away taking you either towards Bath or towards Bradford Upon Avon (both routes have a pub on in case you're wondering so make sure you take some money for a taxi back). On a hot summers day you'll find people wandering down to the River Avon for a swim at Claverton Weir only 10 minutes away.
The whole village sits within a conservation area and is nestled between Bath and Limpley Stoke/Bradford Upon Avon, down the hill from The American Museum so there are plenty of cultural things to immerse yourself in.
Features include wood burning stove, oak floors, underfloor heating, pressurized hot water system, traditional country kitchen, belfast sink, induction hob, etc.
Wifi is provided and there is a flat screen internet enabled TV (so you catch up on demand), dvd's and books, cards etc to keep you amused on a night in.

|Further details outdoors|
There is a small walled rear courtyard to the property which gets the sun from about midday during the summer. A small table and chairs allow coffee drinking and paper reading, whilst a BBQ is there for a bit of a fresco cooking.
Parking is on street at the front of the property. Since it's a quiet village there is almost never a problem parking within 20 yards of the front door.
A car, whilst not necessarily essential, would be advisable as the village has no shop or pub. Nearest local store is around 1.8 miles away. Bus (number 264/265) goes every 30 mins during the day.
Taxi from Bath Spa station approx. £8-9 during normal hours.
This is strictly a NON SMOKING property.
Not equipped for babies or toddlers.
As a cautionary note, the staircase is perhaps not suitable for anyone with a lack of mobility just because it's rather narrow and rather steep.
The West Country region
An area of outstanding beauty and historical interest with all sorts of things to do and see.
Bath is the best bit of the west (perhaps we are slightly biased though). Roman history, great architecture, theatre, museums, entertainment, great shopping, good pubs - the list goes on.
Claverton is only 3km from the centre of Bath and has a rich history itself and can be traced back to around 1000AD, later mentioned in the doomsday book and English Civil war records.
For the last 200 hundred years the village's history has been entwined with that of Claverton Manor and Warleigh Manor. Both part of the same family the two estates covered the entire Limpley stoke valley.
The Amercian Museum, which is great to visit, has been in Claverton Manor since 1950 and is a rather steep, 20 minutes walk away from the cottage. This Neoclassical, Grade 1 listed building replaced the original Jacobean manor which stood in the village, but was demolished by the then owner (so you can blame him for the steep walk!).
Other notable things to mention in the village itself are St Mary the Virgin, Church which is definitely worth a look in and Claverton Pumping station.
