“I wish i lived here!”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2013

I stumbled across Benson Cottage whilst looking for accommodation for a hen party. We were a party of 10 and really wanted to stay somewhere a little bit special. Benson Cottage certainly exceeded our expectations in this regard. When we arrived on the Friday night, Rachel, the owner, met us and watched the car whilst we unloaded. The cottage is down a side street and the permit parking is a 5 minute walk away so it was lovely to have her on hand to make the unloading process easier. When I stepped through the front door I was taken aback by how beautiful the cottage was. Every attention had been made to the interior design of the property, so much so that it looked like somebody’s house rather than an impersonal holiday let. The shelves were stocked with books, there were slippers on the side, umbrellas on pegs and wine, bread and jam on the table. The cottage was also lovely and warm – the secret to making anywhere feel like home! It can be difficult to find a property that offers room for 10 in single beds but Benson Cottage scored highly there too. Upstairs comprised of one long bedroom with 4 single beds; perfectly designed to house a group of girls, with an ensuite bathroom and lots of mirrors and plug sockets. Another bedroom was situated downstairs, with 3 single beds, and in our case, an extra camp bed (which didn’t look any different to the other comfy beds). All the beds were comfy with big fluffy duvets and blankets. Towels and toiletries were also provided, which was a nice touch. In the lounge there was plenty of seating and one of the sofas pulled out to create a large double bed. The kitchen was ideal for our party too. A large wooden table took pride of place and sat all of us with ease…perfect for breakfast and afternoon tea! Not only was the cottage a beautiful place to stay (and so much more than just a base), but it was central too! We didn’t need to take one taxi the whole weekend. All of Bath’s attractions were a short walk away and the club and restaurant we went to were a two minute stumble home. That’s not to say that we suffered from noise…the cottage was peaceful and we weren’t disturbed by passers-by or traffic due to its side-lane location. All in all I couldn’t recommend Benson Cottage more highly. All the hens loved it and many commented that they would like to move in! The booking process was a pleasure and Rachel and Sam, the owners, couldn’t have been more helpful. I hope we can go back again soon.

“Lovely quiet cottage, exquisitely decorated, right in the centre of Bath.”

Spent one night here with friends on 29th January. Wish it could have been longer! Lovely cottage in a pretty side street full of interesting architecture. It was very quiet yet incredibly close to all the shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and so easy to reach all of the sights. The cottage itself has brilliant fresh and original decor and wonderful finishing touches for the guests. It was much bigger than we expected with plenty of room over three floors and a large cosy sitting room. We especially loved the really well equipped kitchen and the luxuriously comfy beds. A fantastic find, especially as it was a last minute booking. Will definitely be back!
