Birds Nest is a cosy house decorated in a comfortable but simple style. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the large contemporary kitchen with doors opening onto a small courtyard for al fresco dining.There is a study/childrens room just off the kitchen and down the corridor a welcoming sitting room with a wood burning stove.
. To the front of the house is a small garden perfect for catching the evening sun. Two of the four bedrooms are adult only as they are accessed by a fairly steep staircase. There are child safety gates in place.
|Further details outdoors|
Birds Nest is set just back from a quiet road going through the village, there is space for two cars to park on the road just outside the house.
You will be greeted on arrival and there will be a welcome pack of basic provisions.
The West Country region
The West Country has long been a place popular with those who love walking and the outdoor pursuits. Apart from Roman and Georgian Bath there are many other amazing stately homes and gardens including Stourhead.In the spring Badminton Horse Trials and the summer Glastonbury Festival.
Jane Austin, William Beckford, Beau Brummell and Ralph Allen are some of the historical figures associated with Bath and you will find many references to them at the newly refurbished Holborne museum.
On a more local level, down by the canal you can rent canoes, bicycles or a boat for the day. Bradford on Avon is a wonderful place to shop for local produce and antiques.
At the weekends Frome, Bradford on Avon and Bath have farmers markets and Bath has a huge outdoor antiquesmarket once a month at the race course.

We're a group of 6 in our early twenties and we had an excellent stay at Bird's Nest. Anna was very helpful with suggestions about things to do and her own personal recommendations and was very flexible about arrival/departure times.
When we arrived the kitchen already had some welcoming supplies, which was thoughtful, and the house itself is great. There's a very cosy log burner in the sitting room and there was a large supply of wood to keep it going. Some DVDs, books and board games are also provided. In my opinion the kitchen is the best feature of the house, because it's so sociable. In the summer it would be wonderful to have a barbecue in the courtyard area. It was very well decorated and presented and exceeded my expectations.
The stairs to the top floor are quite steep and perhaps not ideal for older people or young children, but there are stair safety gates to make sure little children are safe and three bedrooms over the two lower floors, so I can't see it being a problem for anyone.
The village pub is very close and does great food and the bus stop is very convenient. It was £4 for a single adult ticket into Bath and it stops very near to the train station, so one day we went to Bristol as well. It was only about £21 to get a taxi from Bath back to the house. We also went for a walk by the canal and went to Cheddar Gorge during our stay.
Excellent house and location!

"Lovely period house in a great location and fab village pub"
Having spent a long time hunting for the perfect place to host my mother's birthday party and have a bit of a family get-together I came across "The Birds Nest". Seemed to fit all the criteria and was nice and close to Bath. Anna the owner was very friendly and accomodating as well as incredibly helpful with information on the local area. She even offered to help source a cake! The house itself is very well presented and very well equipped. On arrival we were greeted by a roaring log fire, home made cookies and a fresh loaf of bread. We walked to the village pub which is only 2 minutes away and had a fab meal. Delicious food and a good selection of local beers and ciders! (bar area is dog friendly by the way)
Back to the house we spent the rest of the evening in the very cosy front room with fire and tv (ample room for 5 adults and one little one). The kitchen/diner is enormous and beautifully done opening out into a courtyard with bbq. Perfect for a party. Its not far to go down to the nearest bit of canal for a nice walk. We also ended up getting the bus back from Bath one day which was easy as it stops less than a minute away. I dont know what time it runs to but it would be an excellent mode of transport for a night out in Bath. Also in the village is a farmshop and also a Coop incase you run out of supplies. All in all fab house in a brillant location with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area especially if you want to dabble on the canals or river. Would recommend this place to anyone. Its a lovely venue and very reasonably priced. Hope to return again for more fun soon.
