The west country region has the most gorgeous and evocative English Countryside, there are many beautiful villages, towns and stately homes to explore, not to mention ancient history dating back thousands of years such as Stonehenge and Avebury.
A lush and delicious slice of England you'll want to visit again and again.

"Absolutely perfect - we will be back!"
Stayed at 268 for 2 nights from 4th to 6th April. What a fabulous apartment - finished to such a high standard. Perfect for 2 people, especially on a romantic break, cosy but very sleek and stylish.… More

We stayed here for New Year and found the accommodation to be exactly as advertised: perfect for two. Very close to Bath city centre, which is easily accessible via car or bus. Also has a local convenience store and a couple of pubs down the road, so its location is perfect.
Because we only stayed three nights and prioritised our daytime activities in the centre of Bath we didn't take advantage of the local walks that are available, but if we went back we'd definitely do so.
Would heartily recommend it.

"Superb `tres chic` holiday apartment"
Everything at 268 was absolutely perfect. The location in Batheaston is just a ten minute drive from the centre of Bath with its excellent historic buldings, great shopping and zillions of restaraunts....yet the apartment is in such a lovely and quiet location. The property is the downstairs floor of a two storey cottage, which has its own parking space and decked area complete with table and chairs and views, and surrounded by some lovely herbage so its also quite private.
It is also just a 100m stroll from the River Avon where you can take a circular walk down by the river and the many swans and ducks, to the weir and toll bridge and have a drink and a lovely meal (which we did!) in the Bathampton Mill bar and restaraunt. Lovely place.
We met the wonderful and friendly owners Andrew and Karen on the day we arrived and they gave us a very warm welcome and explained everything about the apartment to us. A lovely couple.
The apartment itself is very modern and quite luxurious. Every inch of space in this old but lovingly restored property has been perfectly utilised by the owners, who designed and remodelled this apartment themselves.
The main living area is a mix of lounge, dining and kitchen and is a perfect and very easy to use space. The whole apartment has underfloor heating with a lovely tiled floor with each room individually controlled. So it is really perfect for all seasons!
The Kingsize Double bed was one of the most comfortable beds that we have ever slept in! There was also tons of hanging space for all our luggage (which was plenty) as we were en route to our Daughters wedding! The bathroom is compact yet perfectly designed like the rest of the apartment and has a great wet room shower.
Our stay at 268 was perfect. It matched everything we needed for our time in the area and we would certainly stay there again and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to our family and friends.

"Modern, spacious and friendly"
A lovely modern apartment with pretty well everything you would want, in a good location with a bus stop almost at the door ( much better than trying to drive in Bath). Unit is warm, comfortable with excellent facilities and space to put suitcases and "things". Although it is located on a main road it is surprisingly quiet and has off street parking (although it is a bit of a tight squeeze)

"A lovely flat in a great location"
We stayed in the flat for two nights during a very hot weekend in Bath. The flat is well equipped and spacious. It is just outside of Bath but we found it easy to get a bus into the city. We loved the surfer decor. We even watched the Point Break dvd one evening. The only two suggestions for improvement are that there could have been a pint of milk in the fridge because we were gasping for a cuppa when we got there. There was a massive variety of tea bags which wad a nice touch. In the hot weather I wasn'tdo think that a portable fan is needed for the bedroom. It got very hot and it was difficult to open the windows. I wasn't keen on opening them because people were walking along the pavement right outside of the windows.
All in all it was a very enjoyable stay. We loved having breakfast in the courtyard looking at the views of the countryside. We would stay here again.

"An amazing find."
From start to finish 282 was just perfect. The accommodation, location and facilities were first class. The apartment was very modern, bright and spotlessly clean with excellent facilities - everything you could want.
It was also nice and cool as the temperatures during our visit were reaching 30 degrees. We parked the car at the beginning of our stay and it didn't move again till we were leaving. The frequent bus service into Bath (about every 15 minutes all day) meant we had no problems with parking. The bus journey was about 10-20 minutes depending on the time of day. Andrew was very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. There are a couple of shops nearby for necessities and a major supermarket on the way into Bath. Great Wifi service was a bonus. Would like to go again and we have already told many friends. Thanks Andrew.
