Brooks' View, just 15 minutes from Bath city centre, provides the ideal base for self catering luxury at 4 star level. The essence of romance with a delightful summerhouse at the bottom of the private garden overlooking the brooks and hills, Brooks View is ideal for weekends and the longer stay.

The cottage with its roll top bath has a romantic feel and a unique combination of city culture and rural cool. Our guests adore the wildlife, the birds, the wild flowers and the wonderful walks around. They also enjoy the luxury king sized bed in the dreamy master bedroom and the cosy sitting room with the traditional cosy wood burning stove.

At the top of the garden there is a patio with table and chairs and at the bottom of the garden there is a summer house to enjoy the evenings beside the brook and watch the varied wildlife. Fly fishing on the brooks can be arranged.

There is a flat screen television, DVD player, iPod docking station and dining area for four, whilst the fully equipped kitchen has the added convenience of both a washing machine and a dishwasher. The cottage also has free wifi and parking.

Brooks' View holds awards for cyclists and walkers, with cycle storage. Sustrans Route 24 with the famous Two Tunnels into Bath is on the door step. There are many other delightful countryside walks and cycle routes on the door step.

Two excellent independent pubs are within 15 minutes' walk, both of which serve delicious home cooked food at lunchtime and in the evening.

Hello Margaret

How very good of you to write so positively in your feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed the summerhouse. It is a new feature this year and we thought it would have great appeal to be able tit beside the brook and watch the wildlife. Also a super spot for dining.

I hope you managed time to take an evening stroll round the reservoir and enjoy the rare bats and evening wildlife to be found there. If you come in the spring there are beautiful wildflowers too.

Thank you for taking the time to comment...greatly appreciated. Do come again. Best wishes Ann
