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.

"Perfect hide-away, near beautiful Bath but cosy and calm to come home to."
Claverton Cottage is perfectly situated: near Bath, yet in a quaint English village that allows one to unwind after the friendly hustle and bustle of Bath. The latter has much to offer whether it be to be pampered in the thermal spa, seduced by the beauty of the Roman Baths, Abbey or town architecture, tempted by the famous Sally Lumm buns, serenaded by the numerous and talented town buskers, financially ruined by the excellent choice of shops and their wares ... and a drive, or walk, through the surrounding countryside and villages is like stepping into a time warp of beauty and peace! Then, after a long day of discovery, to come "home" (for such is the magic of Claverton Cottage and the art of its owner who has skilfully and sensitively molded a house into a home, transforming a visitor into a guest!) and unwind infront of a log fire, glass of wine in hand and at peace with the world! The cottage is as beautiful, as it is comfortable, as it is efficient. Alastair's hospitality and sense of service flows naturally and sincerely adding to the feeling of being "at home". . Our praise could not be higher.

"Perfect location and cosy cottage"
The owner Alastair was more than helpful from the point of booking and gave us lots of recommendations for places to visit. The cottage is lovely, well equipped and clean. It takes about 1hour to walk into Bath along the tow path or ten mins in the car. We recommend Demuths veggie restaurant, fantastic for meat eaters as well. £12.50 for two course lunch.
We enjoyed a visit to the theatre, if you turn up last minute you can usually get cheap tickets. There is so much to do in Bath and there are more than enough good places to eat and drink.

"A perfect love nest"
We had a wonderful 10 day stay in Claverton. The lovely cottage has been beautifully refurbished and well equipped and is perfectly suited for a couple. The small walled in terrace to the west is big enough for a breakfast for two. The steep and narrow staircase to the upstairs bedroom may be difficult, however, for elderly people. The location also is perfect. A 10 minute walk took us to the river for a swim. Scenic hikes either along the Avon canal or via the Bath skyline walk took us to the city of Bath. If we were lazy we took a bus. All in all a perfect place for a holiday for two.

"Fab cottage and great location"
This was a lovely little cottage. The owner has done a great job and has thought of everything. We really enjoyed our week here, I has read the other reviews and wondered if they were too good to be true but it promised to be everything we had hoped for and more. It is also in a perfect location being very easy to get to Bath by car or a short bus ride. We will be recommending this place to our friends and family.

This was the first property on our touring holiday. I really worried about the other places we had booked, as they had to live up to this wonderful little cottage. Alistair has excelled in upgrading this place. It has everything you would need for your stay plus extras. I loved the half doors you open for air without opening fully. There is a table and 2 chairs outback we used for breakfast and late drink, as it was so warm. There is nothing much to do in the village, but had a lovely walk along the canal to the george at bathampon. We actually walked back the canal from Bath, stopping again halfway at the george. Another day we walked the other way for 3 hours to an inn in a little village i forget the name.We did not use our car there but used the 30min bus service. But be warned the bus fares are pretty expensive, but saves you fighting the traffic and trying to find a parking space. Anyway thank you again Alistair for letting us share your lovely cottage

"Cosy, relaxing and well equipped cottage - perfect!"
Had a lovely stay here and the cottage is perfect, small and cosy but with everything you need. Very nice kitchen and good washing machine - also made use of lovely little patio which catches the sun going down in the evening making a lovely setting. Bathroom also particularly smart and bed very comfy. Location is excellent for getting into Bath and plenty else to do in surrounding areas. Perfect if you don't want the hussle and bussle of staying in the city centre. Would highly recommend this cottage.
