Old Dairy Barn
from £85 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Tucked away behind the owner's house in a very private location on the edge of the walled village of Bathford, this former dairy has been skilfully converted to a high standard, creating an exceptionally attractive space. Its location is ideal for easy access to the Georgian city of Bath, less than 3 miles away.
From the unusual approach via an ancient, narrow path and through an archway to a 'secret' patio, to the many original features of the building which dates from the early 17th century, Old Dairy Barn exudes character and style. There's an impressive, beamed open-plan living room with inglenook on the ground floor and inspirational views across the valley towards the city from the main bedroom's picture window upstairs.
