Get away from it all and enjoy the luscious scenery of a secluded countryside setting by booking one of these fabulous cosy holiday cottages. Choose from country cottages in England, tranquil gites in France and cottages in Wales with log fires and breathtaking views.
You may prefer to visit the splendid country of Ireland and stay in a traditional Irish cottage - enjoying long leisurely walks before soaking up the Celtic atmosphere in great local pubs. Alternatively, choose a Scottish lodge by a loch or in the mountains and relax as you marvel at the beauty of the great outdoors.
For the more adventurous, look further afield and enjoy the serenity of a country cottage in a hidden overseas location. Pick somewhere in a peaceful forest or mountain setting and enjoy long walks or energetic bike rides.
“Comfortable cottage in lovely location” Mill Cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The kitchen/living room being on the first floor gives views over the river to the front, and garden and woods to the rear.
The coastal path is easily accessed

We were very comfortable in this cottage. We found Bathford a convenient place to stay to explore Bath. We didnt use our car at all instead choosing to walk along the canal into Bath or use the bus. … More
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am so glad you enjoyed your time in the cottage and were able to do the lovely walk into Bath along the canal.
I understand your point about the reading lamp as the lighting is quite soft in the living room when only the two lamps are on. We felt that the directional spots overhead did the job well when required but we will certainly look at this again. We have never encountered a problem with the shower tray at the cottage but thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We hope you come back again to Bathford - we will be offering some lazy weekends in January and some of February with late Sunday departures on offer - perfect for the sales and sunday lunch.
