Location description from manager

The England region

This is an entire region of fascinating depth and historical context. The area has varied geography including river valleys and rolling hills. The history of human habitation is long but expanded massively during Roman times, and played significant roles in the Saxon era and English civil war. Industry developed from a largely agricultural basis to include coal mining with the coming of canals and railways. Bath itself developed as a spa resort in Georgian times and remains a major cultural tourism centre having gained World Heritage City status.

Batheaston was named Estone in the Domesday Book and is overlooked by Solsbury Hill which is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and was an Iron Age hill fort occupied between 300 BC and 100 BC. It is also linked to Bathampton on the south bank of the river via a toll bridge. Near the river crossing is the site of a Roman villa. Elsewhere in secluded St Catherine's valley is the Tudor manor house, St Catherine's Court.

There are many places to visit including tithe barns, ancient churches, pristine villages and the Cotswold Way. The West Country features not only the amazing city of Bath, but Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury and Glastonbury. Longleat Safari Park and many National Trust country houses are less than one hour by car.

Batheaston

You will be just minutes from The Royal Crescent, The Circus and the recently opened Thermae Bath Spa and Roman Baths. You will be a few minutes from The Theatre Royal, Abbey Square and some world class restaurants, famous pubs and clubs. Well placed to enjoy music festivals, quality free pub music, film festival, art galleries, Literary Festival, rugby, the Christmas market and many museums.

Batheaston is a small historic village on the edge of the Cotswolds and St. Catherine's Valley, a few minutes from Bath City Centre. Access by car or bus takes a few minutes and it takes about 40 minutes to walk to Bath along the canal tow path. Within a short walk from the cottage there are several good local pubs and restaurants, a small supermarket, chemist, fish and chip shop and hairdressers. Click here for more on Batheaston.

“Brilliant cottage, great location!”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2014

We stayed here for a week. The cottage was exactly what we had hopped for, beautifully presented, fully equipped. The location is perfect, whether to go to Bath or to explore other local tows/country side. A 10 mins walk takes you to a very good pub by the tool bridge (The Bathampton Mill - normal pub prices but delicious food!)

Glad you discovered Bathampton Mill. Actually there are several pubs within walking distance and at least three serve good food. Thanks for the review and I hope we will see you again soon.

“Clean, comfortable and excellent value for money”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2014

We were delighted with our stay in this quirky cottage. We have stayed in a number of guesthouses and self catering apartments when visiting our daughter at the University of Bath and this property definitely wins on location, quality of accommodation and value for money. Would recommend the walk to Bath along the canal via Bathampton. We will certainly come again.

Many thanks for taking the time to review our property. The walk along the canal is lovely and quite easy being level. During the season there is also a river bus to town with is another nice alternative to the bus or taxi. I hope we will see you soon.

“Super clean and cosy appartment”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2013

We spent 25 days in "The Batch" and our stay was great. There were 5 of us, and the landlord provided us with everything (from extra bedding to towels). The house was fully equipped with all necessary amenities and all the rooms were nicely decorated. There was also enough space for all of us. Nice and quiet family area with regular buses to the city centre (about £4.30 return).

It can be difficult and expensive to drive into Bath. The bus really works well, deliverers you to the centre and only takes a few minutes because of the dedicated bus lane.

“Delightful accommodation with easy access to beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

Well planned accommodation serving as a great base to explore the surrounding countryside. All the modern conveniences one would wish for, plus the added advantage of cardio workout from climbing stairs! The layout is rather odd - the kitchen and bathroom are on the top floor, sitting room middle floor and bedroom at the bottom - quite a hike to use the bathroom in the middle of the night! Parking a bit of a challenge but not insurmountable.

The building is a converted Georgian church furniture workshop next to a converted forge. It is an upside down house but people seem to like the quirky nature of the place. Perhaps not ideal as a permanent home it is nice to experience something different while on holiday. Most people find parking easy. As you said yourself in your email to me “Incidentally, we had no trouble with parking - had the car on the Batch for the duration.” As you say it is a great base and I do hope we will see you again soon.

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

A well located and well prepared. Just as advertised. In the large kitchen everything works perfectly. The bedroom is spacious and the bed is comfortable. House Ideal for 2 adults and 1 child.

It does work well with a child and we do not apply the three persons rate for a child.

“A recommander”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

Bon point de départ pour la visite de Bath et des environs, logement agréable, bien équipé et propre. La réservation s'est faite sans problème. Même si un parking privé aurait été appréciable nous n'avons pas eu trop de mal à nous garer. La voiture reste indispensable pour un séjour d'une semaine : pour les courses (le petit supermarché local ayant fermé) et les excursions hors Bath. Batheastone est lui même un joli petit bourg qui vaut d'être vu.

Je suis heureux que vous avez apprécié votre séjour. En fait, le petit supermarché dans Batheaston est ouvert 7:00-22:00 sept jours par semaine. Une voiture est utile si vous allez sur une excursion, mais il ya un bus à Bradford-on-Avon où il ya une station de train. Certes, ce n'est pas la peine de prendre la voiture en Bath, si ce n'est pour la soirée. Je suis d'accord que Batheaston vaut le détour. Il est un ancien lieu avec beaucoup d'histoire et quelques beaux bâtiments. Dans les vingt minutes de marche, il ya la dernière demeure de William Wilberforce chef de file du mouvement pour abolir la traite des esclaves; Eagle House qui a été construit par John Wood le Jeune et utilisé comme un lieu de récupération pour la Suffragette et le dernier lieu de repos de l'amiral Arthur Phillip qui fut le fondateur de la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud. J'espère que vous reviendrez. Si cette traduction n'est pas correct s'il vous plaît blâmer mon ordinateur. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Actually the small supermarket in Batheaston is open 7.00 AM to 10.00 PM seven day a week. A car is useful if you are going on an excursion, although there is a bus to Bradford on Avon where there is a train station. Certainly it is not worth taking the car into Bath, unless it is for the evening. I agree that Batheaston is worth seeing. It is an ancient place with a lot of history and some beautiful buildings. Within twenty minutes walk there is the last home of William Wilberforce leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade; Eagle House which was built by John Wood the Younger and used as a recuperation place for the Suffragette and the last resting place of Admiral Arthur Phillip who was the founder of New South wales. I hope you will come again. If this translation is not correct please blame my computer.

Reviewed 3 Jun 2013

Excellent apartment, very clean, spacey (for up to 4), quite and nicely furnished. The double bed and blanket were amazing. I slept as good as at home! Pubs and convenience store open til 10pm nearby. Easy to reach by car. Unfortunately, public parking is only allowed for one hour right on the street; there is also a larger parking space available right behind the bus stop for up to 3 hours. After check-out you cannot leave your luggage at the property to pick it up later. However, there are two cafés vis-a-vis the train station where you can deposit your luggage until 8pm. The owner of the apartment is very helpful and replied fast to emails.

That is a really useful comment about the cafes near the train station where you can leave your luggage. I am sure other travellers will find it helpful The street directly opposite the cottage does have a limit on parking during weekdays, although no one have ever seen a warden. However, if you go towards Bath for a few yards the parking is unrestricted and plentiful. Please come again.

“comfortable and convenient”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

The accomodation on three floors was comfortable and well equiped. A slight dissadvantage was that the bedroom was on the bottom floor and the bathroom up on the top floor. Parking was a short walk away. There is a bus service from the road outside directly into Bath which takes about 10 minutes. Try the Crown at Bathford for a good meal but be prepared to wait.

Thank you for pointing out that the bus stop is just outside. It really is much easier than trying to drive and park in town. Of course in good weather you could go on the water-bus or walk along the canal.

“Exactly what we wanted”

Reviewed 12 May 2013

Very handy for Bath and surrounding areas. The George and Bathampton Mill pubs that serve good food both within walking distance. Places visited - Bath, Glastonbury, Wells, Longleat, Street and Corsham. Excellent week.

Looks like you had a busy week. Glad you all enjoyed it.

“Lovely property and value for money”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2013

Had a lovely stay at the Batch Cottage over New Year the village was very friendly especially the gentleman who worked in the paper shop as when we asked him what time the buses ran he rang his wife up to ask as he never uses them. The buses ran every 20 minutes and took no time at all to get to Bath which we did twice. The cottage had everything you needed, the bed was really comfy, the cottage was warm and everytime I sat on settee fell asleep as also very comfy. The Crown Pub in Bathford is superb for food and only about a 10 minute walk away. Longleat is a must we also went to Lacock Village absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately the walk we wanted to do along the river to Bath was flooded so one for next time.

We must try The Crown soon.
