House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Built in 1895, Norman House has the feel of a cottage with a modern stylish look inside; wooden floors downstairs, light and airy throughout, but snug, with a warming log burner for those colder days. Its location is a great place to relax, walk, or take in all that the city of Bath has to offer, which is just an easy walk away along the scenic Kennet and Avon canal (approx 2.9 km).
The pretty village has a Norman church, a local shop with post office, and two pubs both offering restaurant food in lovely surroundings. There is a small park and play area for children near the house. Its sure to fit the bill for adult groups and families.

The West Country region
Without question Somerset is one of the most beautiful parts of England, enjoying wonderfully unspoilt countryside, and, here in Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Norman House itself is approximately 25-30 mins walk away from the centre of Bath or a short drive.)
The county of Somerset borders Bristol and Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east, and Devon to the south-west. From Bath there is easy access to the Blackdown Hills, the Medips, Quantocks and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels.
Bathampton dates back to the Iron Age, there are reports that the church foundations are Norman. The George Pub was originally a monastery in the 12th century.
Bath city was first established as a spa with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s. They built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs. Later, Bath became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.
The city is full of wonderful architecture, and has a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural venues, which have helped to make it popular with visitors. There are many pubs and restaurants to choose from, both in and around Bath, as well as its surrounding areas.

"What beautiful, homely place to spend a weekend."
We have just returned from our weekend away at Norman House and are glowing! Brilliantly equipped and ideal for a stay in and around Bath. Very clean and cosy it felt like home away from home.
The bus goes in to town every 30 mins and the stop is only 2-3 minutes walk away and we even strolled in one evening a pleasant 30-40 minute stroll. This house comes highly recommended!

"The quintessential English country home!"
The Bathampton area is absolutely magical, exactly how an Aussie traveller imagines the English countryside to look. We were very happy with Norman House. Mark is an extremely helpful host. The property had looked almost too good to be true online but more than met all claims. The house is gorgeous with thick towels and comfortable beds. Walking to the nearby pub is like strolling onto a movie set, the area is just breath taking. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us Mark.

"A great place in a wonderful location for families"
We really enjoyed our stay in Norman House. The house was very clean and tidy - has modern facilities - and is in wonderful location - an easy drive to Bath. For families, a park is close by and you can walk or bike up and down the canal. We would recommend staying here.
I am pleased that it worked so well for your family and glad to hear you took advantage of the nearby park. Thanks for writing a review.
