Perfect Georgian Cottage for Girls Get Togethers and Family Celebrations in Bath.

Completely refurbished in January 2013, Benson Cottage is the perfect place for a get together in beautiful Georgian Bath. This hidden gem in a quiet pedestrian street is just three minutes from Milsom Street and a short level walk to all the main tourist attractions of Bath. From the outside it is a pretty Georgian cottage, but step inside and you find an exciting open plan interior, beautifully furnished to sleep up to 8 people in comfort. The original Georgian front door opens into a fabulously equipped kitchen dining room. This is the place for celebrations meals around the large wooden table seating up to 10. Glass doors lead through to a charming sitting room with a chaise longue and two huge comfy sofas. There 32" TV with DVD player for relaxing after sightseeing or a night on the town. We have a great library of paperbacks and DVDs. The ground floor separates the two sleeping areas, making the house perfect for hen parties, re-unions and family gatherings. The upper floor is flooded with light from a large lantern window and attractively decorated with funky wallpaper and cushions. This area is partly open plan with two generous single beds that can convert into a luxurious super king. All our beds are handmade by a traditional English company using natural fibres with high quality sprung pocket mattresses. We have ultra soft feather and down duvets and pillows with Egyptian cotton, satin stripe sheets, ensuring comfort and luxury. Folding double doors lead through to the second bedroom overlooking gardens, with two singles or a super king bed. The contemporary drench-style shower room with WC makes the upstairs area perfect for a family, two couples or four friends.

Downstairs from the kitchen dining room is a third large, luxurious bedroom, beautifully decorated in soft colours with vintage furniture and accessories creating a cosy, sumptuous atmosphere. There are twin beds that can be made up as a super king and a pretty day bed with a pocket sprung mattress. If you have an extra person, we can put a fold up bed in this room too without it being too cramped. The contemporary bathroom has a double ended bath with shower. There is oodles of hot water, white fluffy towels and personal toiletries so everyone can shower or bath in comfort before an evening out in the town. If you are planning a longer stay we have a washer drier under the stairs with a warm hanging area for drying off wet coats. Outside is a small vaulted area.

We welcome hen parties and families but regret we do not accept bookings for stag parties.

About this location

The Somerset region

The West Country region is known for its beautiful countryside, traditional villages with thatched cottages and old pubs and a stunning coastline. Near to Bath you can drive to the beautiful villages of the Cotwolds, Tetbury, Stowe-on-the-Wold and many others. Longleat House with its wildlife park is less than an hour away. The exciting city of Bristol offering all types of cultural opportunities in the arts, theatre and excellent shopping is only ten miles drive or a short direct train ride.


Bath is a UNESCO world heritage city, renown for its superb mellow Georgian Stone buildings and historic Roman Baths. The Thermae spa offers rooftop all season outdoor bathing in the natural hot springs which brought the Romans to Bath. Relaxing in the warm water overlooking the rooftops at sunset is a treat never to be forgotten. The Spa can be booked for treatments, swimming in the indoor pool, or complete packages including meals, rooftop bathing and therapies.

River trips up to Bathampton Mill are delightful on summerdays or evenings. Strolling around the town, visiting the famous Royal Crescent, the skyline often filled with hot air balloons, Bath Abbey and the fascinating Roman Bath remains is a delightful way to spend a day or two in the town. There are numerous small fascinating museums all in easy walking distance of the cottage. The town is known for its wide selection of independent shops, particularly for fashion and vintage finds not available in most highstreets. The best of the chains can also be found in Southgate near the stations which is the newly developed area, perfect for shopping trips with friends.

There are bars and restaurants to cater for every taste and occasion, all close to Benson Cottage so you are never more than ten minutes from home. The newly extended Waitrose is a few minutes easy walk away if you are planning meals at the house. Specialist cheese and wine shops are nearby for gourmets and there are several great cafes less than five minutes walk for breakfast.
