Cute Cottage in Bath
from £86 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Welcome to our pretty and romantic holiday home built around 1805 (listed Grade II). It is wonderfully situated between the city and countryside in a secluded private lane with safe parking. It is furnished to a very high standard. It has a large open-plan living/dining/kitchen area downstairs and a utility room with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer . Two bedrooms upstairs, one with a standard double bed, the other with two single beds which can 'zip-and-click' into a superking-sized double. Baby/toddler cot and bedding available. Bathroom has a bathtub with a strong shower. Our home is nearby.
Full kitchen facilities for the self-caterer - we provide a welcome pack with milk, coffee, tea and a few things for your first breakfast. The award winning 'Darling Deli' (300m away) serves breakfast and light meals (Mon-Sat). There are three pubs nearby – the Forester and Flower (10 minutes walk) serves meals in the evenings and Sunday lunch and there is even a traditional Fish & Chip shop! You can BBQ in the lovely sunny garden.
No 1 bus from the bus/railway station which runs every half-hour takes less than 10 minutes to the village and stops 200m from the lane. There are beautiful walks to the city centre - about 35 minutes (downhill) - map provided. Taxi from the city centre costs about £8. The bus route 20A goes from Combe Down to Bath University.
Combe Down village has a grocery/convenience store (open 8am-10pm) and a pharmacy. It is famous for a history of stone mining - from massive underground excavations. Bath's fine Georgian houses and many prominent buildings in London were built using stone from the mines. The village is in the World Heritage Site and on the border of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The history of stone mining is told in the new Ralph Allen Cornerstone centre nearby - Ralph Allen was the entrepreneur who owned these mines and marketed the stone as the 'must have' construction material of the Georgian period..
The principal signatory must be 23 years or older. We welcome well behaved children. Care must be taken with young children because the kitchen area is open plan and this may pose a risk. The house has a gas safety certificate (annual check), electrical check (PAT) and other safety features including Carbon Monoxide and smoke sensors to give you (and us) security during your stay. We regret that we cannot accommodate pets.

The Somerset region
There are always events taking place in Bath and the local area - we will provide you with maps and brochures about activities, visitor sites and festivals. Stonehenge, Bristol and the Wye Valley are easy day trips from Bath.
Most visitors head into the city, but there are lovely walks from the house into the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and some great country pubs. From 9 April 2013 you will be able to walk or cycle through the mile-long Combe Down Railway Tunnel - a new and exciting multi-user trail. You can hire bikes nearby at Dundas beside the Kennet & Avon canal - an alternative route to Bath.

"Lovely little find but a bit pricey for a short stay"
A lovely little place. Clean, tidy and everything you'd need for a stay away from home. A nice downhill walk into Bath means that you don't have to tackle the traffic queues. Would definitel… More

"An unforgettable (wonderful) experience thanks to the house, and its owner"
We have spent almost 3 weeks, travelling with 3 small children. The beautiful house was perfectly equipped for our circumstances. The area and neibourhood are fantastic. There are plenty of interesting things to do. But what makes our stay truly special is the outstanding generousity and kindness of Martin and Jenny. My own parents would not have taken so much care of us as they did, even before we arrived until even after we left. My children take them as their british grandparents. I can only say thank you VERY much.
