The bedrooms are as follows: Two ensuite double rooms with the option of single or double beds (zip and link), another bedroom also with zip and link beds and one double room. We can make up the rooms to suit your requirements. We don't provide any specific facilities for children, but you can hire cots etc locally.

As well as the two ensuites and a downstairs cloakroom, there is a family bathroom.

The property is finished to a very high standard throughout and is private and quiet. The lounge is decorated in Roman style with LED HD 40" TV and gas coal effect fire, with two large quality sofas and a couple of easy chairs. There is a superb French country style kitchen and dining area as well as a study, utility room, downstairs cloakroom and separate formal dining room.

Plenty of secure parking and a bus stop on the road outside to get you into Bath in a few minutes.

Our housekeeper can arrange pre prepared, home cooked food for you, from a welcome cream tea to a full dinner. You may also hire our Karaoke system, which is always very popular with larger groups. We also provide a comprehensive, up to date information pack with many tips and recommendations to enable you to make the most of your stay.

One of the best pubs in the area is a short walk and from there you can catch the river bus into town - a real treat! A little further is the towpath along the nearby canal which can take you into Bath or out into the beautiful countryside. There is also a footpath from the bottom of Batheaston, alongside the river Avon for another nice walk.

We also have a 1 bed luxury cottage for a couple called the Saltings (174775) and a pair of 2 bed cottages next to each other, the Old Workshop, (252945) and the Coach House (461116) which groups may rent in conjunction with the main house. See our other listings. So in the same courtyard, we can accommodate groups of up to 18 people.

Further details indoors

Whilst the property is built in traditional Georgian style from the beautiful Bath stone mined in the area, it offers all the latest conveniences and comfort. A very high level of insulation means you will be warm in winter and cool in summer.

As this was our family home, it had everything we needed and we have left it virtually intact. So you will benefit from lots of small touches like Egyptian cotton bedding and fluffy Turkish cotton towels. We make every effort to ensure you will have a very relaxing and comfortable break.

The kitchen, built by craftsmen formerly employed by Mark Wilkinson furniture, is fully equipped with everything you need to conjure up a cordon bleu special. The kitchen has a double belfast sink and filtered drinking water.

There are plenty of entertainment options if Bath has exhausted you. The HD TV with surround sound, Hi Fi system, plus DVDs, games and our huge CD collection are all at your disposal. Plus you can hire our professional Karaoke system for just £20 for your whole stay. We can also recommend private caterers or arrange food for your arrival.

The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room, as does one of the other bedrooms. There is also a communal bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom. The 'combi' boiler produces unlimited hot water and all the water is softened, so you can have lots of bubbles in the bath!

Further details outdoors

You park right outside the front door and five or six cars can be accommodated.

The gardens and patios are at the rear, behind secure, locked gates.

There is a quirky outdoor 'grotto' hidden underneath the lawn at the rear of the house. It has lighting and underfloor heating and is a cosy bolt hole in which you may relax, read or listen to music. Next to the stone built barbeque is an outdoor kitchen area with a small fridge.

There is a round table on the upper patio to seat six, plus another table for two. On the lower patio area is an outdoor three piece suite of rattan furniture with glass topped table, under the large wind out parasol.

The garden has extensive LED lighting and it's a wonderful experience to enjoy sitting outside till the late hours, listening to music, drinking or relaxing.

Location description from owner

The England region

Bath is at the centre of an almost unrivalled tourist area which offers year round entertainment and activities for young and old alike.

The beautiful countryside of the Cotswold and Mendip hills offers plenty of opportunities for sightseeing, eating, drinking, walking, cycling or just chilling out.

Country pubs, Michelin starred restaurants, historic buildings, great nightlife, festivals all year round - what more could you want?

Use Batheaston as a base or as a destination in its own right.

Access is from the M4 from the East or M5/M4 from the South or North. Bristol airport is within 45 minutes drive and the Bristol-London rail line provides regular services to Bath Spa station, which is an inexpensive bus, boat or taxi ride from Batheaston.

Batheaston

For those who know the City, there is no surprise to learn Bath has been the UK's 'pleasure drome' for almost 2000 years. It's certainly living up to that and first time visitors will be blown away by the variety and amount of things to do, see, hear, taste and smell. A typical reaction from a first time visitor is the regret they were not staying for much, much longer and that they will be back for at least a week next time.

Bath is a World Heritage tourist destination, its history dating back to pre Roman times. The first King of England was crowned here! Renowned Georgian architecture rivalling that of Paris, Venice or Rome has been enhanced in recent years with the addition of the £45+million Thermae Bath Spa and the Southgate shopping area, creating perhaps the UK's premier shopping destination.

Britain's only natural thermal spa features the natural mineral waters which first attracted the Romans, who named Bath, Aquae Sulis. The http://www.thermaebathspa.com offers every kind of luxury pampering experience, including the open air roof top hot bath, which is not to be missed.

But it's not just about history and architecture.

Bath has some of the best shopping, eating and drinking experiences to be had.

The Southgate shopping area and the soon to be revealed railway station complex features all the quality brand names housed in impressive Georgian style buildings and complements the famous Milsom Street and the myriad of streets, alleyways and passageways housing many unique shops and designer boutiques.

When it comes to food, the choice spans everything from grand Michelin starred restaurants to family owned bistros cooking the best local produce. Amongst some of the best known names are Jamie Oliver's "Jamie's Italian" in Milsom Place and Michael Caines at The Priory as well as a huge choice of other eateries including an authentic Sushi restaurant, wonderful tapas and a quirky Nepalese dining experience You will be further spoilt for choice by the massive selection of Indian, Chinese, Italian, French, Far Eastern and British food on offer.

After your meal, Bath's evening entertainment is similarly diverse. Our number one recommendation and that of Trip Advisor is the 'Bizarre Bath' comedy walk. This is a brilliantly funny experience and is listed in Trip Advisor's top 10 of 'things to do' in the whole of Europe! The Theatre Royal, Komedia comedy venue or the Little Theatre, showing those hard to find films are popular choices or enjoy a sophisticated drink at Hall and Woodhouse. You can round off the night with a boogie at one of Bath's many night clubs.

At almost any time of the year, Bath is host to a huge number of festivals. These include the world famous 'Bath Music Festival' and many others covering food, comedy, banjo, guitar, street performance, costume and so on.

Many of Bath's visitors come just to explore the Roman Baths and Pump Rooms, whilst the Abbey, the Circus, the Royal Crescent and the Assembly rooms are just a few of the sights you can catch from one of the many open top bus tours.

Or you can spend the day on the look out for the famous! Amongst those known to either live or spend time in and around the City are Johnny Depp, Nicholas Cage, John Cleese, Van Morrison, Midge Ure, Manolo Blahnik and Jonathan Dimbleby .

Batheaston provides easy access to all those delights but is also a destination in its own right. Situated at the foot of Solsbury Hill, made famous by local resident Peter Gabriel, the village nestles at the end of the Cotswold Way. Bordered by the river Avon, where you can fish, take a boat ride or enjoy a waterside drink and a bite to eat. Or why not be adventurous and take in some 'wild swimming' at the fabulous Claverton Weir? It's an easy cycle or good walk from Batheaston and is a gorgeously beautiful place and one of Britain's best wild swimming spots. Also easily walkable is the Kennet and Avon canal, with its immensely popular 'George' public house, right by the water. Or wander up into St Catherine's, a valley so beautiful, Jane Seymour made it her home and welcomed the likes of Robbie Williams and other celebrities. Our courtyard has already welcomed a couple of 'celebrities' to stay, but discretion is assurred so we won't say who. Other 'stars' who appreciate Batheaston's qualities and have made it their home include Ian Holloway the manager of Blackpool football club.

Batheaston has a fascinating history, much of it reflected in it's many ancient Cotswold stone buildings. Between 1909 and 1912, Batheaston was the refuge and home of the suffragettes. The most famous, Emmeline Pankhurst, was amongst many who helped establish an arboretum in the village as a symbol of their hopes for political equality.

Within a short drive of the village you can visit Castle Combe, often claimed to be England's prettiest village (check out the motor racing circuit too!) and Lacock, a National Trust owned historic village which featured in the Harry Potter films. Longleat Safari Park is an easy 30 minute drive.

Post office, pubs, traditional English fish and chip shop, mini supermarket, chemist, newsagent and hairdresser can all be found in the village, just a few minutes walk from the property.

“Beautiful and spacious fantastic period house, sleeps 8”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2016

Situated in Batheaston, near the Historic City of Bath, fabulous period property with 4 large double bedrooms, (2 ensuite), plus separate family bathroom. Spacious, fantastic kitchen/ with breakfast area, accommodating large wooden table and eight chairs. Separate dining room and large lounge and study with board games and selection of CDs. Large laundry area with second fridge and washing machine. Beautiful gardens with terrace, barbecue and views. Heated grotto. This is a fabulous place to host a family event. We have stayed here twice, most recently for a family Christmas. This is a truly beautiful and spacious period property. It's stylish and practical.

Thanks for the review Carolyn, appreciated. Hope we will see you for a 3rd family visit :-) John and Jane

We have just returned from a mid week break at mulsanne house and we had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed, we will defiantly be visiting again in the summer as the only thing that spoiled out week was the weather! Thank you for letting us stay x

Thanks Christine - sorry about the weather, but I know you had a great time, so it will be even better when you come again in the summer and can enjoy the garden :-) Regards John

“Elegant well furnished family home”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2016

We visited Mulsanne House at the end of March and were delighted with the spaciousness yet homely feel which made us feel very comfortable. The main bedroom was superb with views over River Avon and beyond, and the elegant sitting room had a lovely fireplace. John and Jane were extremely efficient with the booking arrangements and the housekeeper, Deborah was on hand during our stay and was very helpful. I would highly recommend this property for its location too, as it was set back from the road and within only a few minutes drive from Bath.

Thanks for the kind words, Katherine. We are very pleased you enjoyed the visit and found everything to your liking, which is exactly why we put so much effort into make it as perfect as we can for you. Best regards John and Jane

“Fantastic stay in a lovely and warm house”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2016

We stayed at Mulsanne House for a hen weekend in November. The location could not be better - just a 10 minute cab journey to the centre of Bath and away from all the hussle and bussle of Bath. The house is really gorgeous - plenty of room in the bedrooms, enough bathrooms to satisfy 8 ladies and the kitchen in particular is outstanding with all the bits you need. The special touches were an added bonus :) Everyone loved the house, especially the bride to be, so all in all it was a really great weekend. It would be great to spend some time here in the summer, to use the BBQ, garden and grotto.

Thanks Paula, very pleased to read your review, which we really value. It would be nice to see you here again sometime. John and jane

“Excellent spacious property with good all round facilities”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2015

On arrival the property exceeded our expectations. Deborah was there to greet us and showed us around. The rooms were spacious, clean and plenty of bathrooms, which was helpful as my son and his small children were staying with us. The kitchen was great and so well fitted and ideal for us with the young family as we could watch the children whilst in the kitchen or lounge. To have a large utility room was also a bonus as we could use it for storage. The study was perfect as we could set up our computer and Check our business emails and shut the door knowing the children would not get in!!!! We did not use the garden much but the bbq area was so nice with the little outdoor room and you could imagine it on a balmy summer night drinking champagne!! The buses and taxis to Bath centre were efficient and regular. Batheaston although small had everything we needed for the stay, a cafe, papershop, small well stocked local convenient store and a fish and chip shop where the fish portions were enormous! A lovely week where we saw all our children, some living locally, in one place in a lovely house. If we have the opportunity we would be back even if we were on our own and had one of the smaller properties on the site. Thank you . Jackie and Bernard Gill

Thank you so much for the review. It sounds like you had a great time, which is exactly what we aim for. Glad you enjoyed all the facilities of the house and found our new cafe in Batheaston. We hope you will be able to come back and stay in one of our other properties soon. John and Jane

“well appointed and ideal for a stay in Bath”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2015

Mulsanne House was very clean, comfortable and perfect for a family get together, providing a quiet location and secluded sunny garden with plenty of seating areas. The bus stop was a stones throw away providing a frequent and very reasonably priced bus service into Bath. One morning we parked at the old mill and caught the river bus into Bath, which was delightfully pleasant and relaxing. We found ample parking for three cars at the property. On the downside, finding somewhere to eat in the evenings was difficult - the old mill was OK, but there didn't seem to be anywhere else that offered a 'good food' alternative. With hindsight maybe we should have caught the bus into Bath where there were plenty of places to eat. If the BBQ at Mulsanne House had been clean and we would have cooked something there, but sadly it was not to be. The wi-fi was very touch and go which was slightly annoying, although we didn't really need it to any great degree. The roman baths were amazing and next time we'll get a sunset spa ticket to watch the sun go down while relaxing in the thermal pool. Recommend trying a Sally Lunn - delicious - get there before 12.30 to avoid long queues.

Hi Alison, Thanks for the review and very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Sorry the BBQ wasn't clean for you - not sure what happened there, it should have been. A shame you didn't go for food to the Bathampton Mill where you got the river bus from, which we strongly recommend in our guide. As you know it's easy walking distance and is a lovely setting. You can have reasonably priced bar food or more choice in the restaurant. Also in our guide is the George and Dragon in Batheaston, just 3 or 4 minutes walk. Quite simple, but good food. Plus there are two other foody pubs we mention within walking distance. And of course, a choice of over 400 restaurants in Bath. But perhaps another time :-) Best regards, John and Jane

“lovely house, plenty of room, nice garden”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2015

Were able to get access to property even though arrived early and received a comprehensive list of amenties close by. Very nice spacious house in a good location as easily get into Bath either on the bus which stops outside, by car or a short walk to Bathampton Mill to go on the water taxi. Also convenient for Longleat which is about 40 mins away. Plenty of seating in garden although weren`t able to take advantage of this due to the weather.

Thanks for the review Valerie. Glad you enjoyed your stay - perhaps next time the weather will be kinder and you can enjoy the garden :-)

“Excellent accommodation”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2015

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a great house for having all the family in as a base for our wedding nearby. Lovely standard of accommodation. They were also kind enough to allow us to check in a bit earlier than the official check-in time since we arrived earlier than that.

Thanks for taking the trouble to write a review Laura. We are very pleased everything worked for you. We are always happy to allow guests to check in early if the property is ready - hope to see you again soon :-) John and Jane

“Fantastic house with a real wow factor”

Reviewed 17 May 2015

Eight of us stayed for three nights, for our annual get-to-gether. On arrival we excitedly explored the house, and every room was fantastic! The garden also was really lovely. We stopped in for two nights as the house was so comfortable, we couldn't think of anywhere better. The third night, we went to the George pub at Bathampton, which was very attractive but the food was a bit disappointing. We all loved the house, but our friends who slept in the double bed found it very hard. We did have a few problems with the cooker, a manual would have been helpful.

Thanks for the review and pleased you enjoyed the house generally. You are the first party in three years which has mentioned the double bed being hard. Most of our guests say the beds are the most comfortable they have slept on. Unfortunately, everyone has different preferences, but overall our guests seem to be very impressed with what we offer. As you know, the cooker hob is a simple gas one. Not sure what further instructions could be provided, you just turn the knob and press it and the appropriate burner lights. It's not something anyone has ever reported before, but thank you for letting us know and we will see if we can improve. Sorry if it spoiled your stay. Our handyman and housekeeper are on hand if there is ever any issue with anything.

“A beautiful house with amazing decor and facilities”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2014

The house was a lovely old farmhouse renovated in a modern way but keeping its original features. It had plenty of room and the bedrooms were fantastic. There were 16 girls staying here and in the two other properties. We had a wonderful time outside and there was space for all of us to relax, eat and even partake in a spot of karaoke! The best thing was there was no arguments due to the amount of bathrooms for all of us! When we arrived John was there to greet us and in each house there were little treats to brighten up our stay. A wonderful rental - would definitely recommend to others!

Glad you thought Mulsanne House was an old property that has been renovated, because that's how I wanted it to look when I had it built in 2000! Really pleased you enjoyed it and hope to see you again. Regards John
