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 wonderful 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 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.
