Description from owner


Perfect Georgian Cottage for Girls Get Togethers and Family Celebrations in Bath.

Benson Cottage is the perfect place for a get together in beautiful Georgian Bath. This hidden gem in a quiet pedestrian street is just three minutes from Milsom Street and a short level walk to all the main tourist attractions of Bath. From the outside it is a pretty Georgian cottage, but step inside and you find an exciting open plan interior, beautifully furnished to sleep up to 8 people in comfort. The original Georgian front door opens into a fabulously equipped kitchen dining room. This is the place for celebrations meals around the large wooden table seating up to 8. Glass doors lead through to a charming sitting room with a chaise lounge and two huge comfy sofas. There is a 32" TV with DVD player for relaxing after sightseeing or a night on the town. We have a great library of paperbacks and DVDs. The ground floor separates the two sleeping areas, making the house perfect for hen parties, re-unions and family gatherings. The upper floor is flooded with light from a large lantern window and attractively decorated with funky wallpaper and cushions. This area is partly open plan with two generous single beds that can convert into a luxurious super king. All our beds are handmade by a traditional English company using natural fibres with high quality sprung pocket mattresses. We have ultra soft feather and down duvets and pillows with Egyptian cotton, satin stripe sheets, ensuring comfort and luxury. Folding double doors lead through to the second bedroom overlooking gardens, with two singles or a super king bed. The contemporary drench-style shower room with WC makes the upstairs area perfect for a family, two couples or four friends.

Downstairs from the kitchen dining room is a third large, luxurious bedroom, beautifully decorated in soft colours with vintage furniture and accessories creating a cosy, sumptuous atmosphere. There are twin beds that can be made up as a super king and a pretty day bed with a pocket sprung mattress. If you have an extra person, we can put a fold up bed in this room too without it being too cramped. The contemporary bathroom has a double ended bath with shower. There is oodles of hot water, white fluffy towels and personal toiletries so everyone can shower or bath in comfort before an evening out in the town. If you are planning a longer stay we have a washer drier under the stairs with a warm hanging area for drying off wet coats. Outside is a small vaulted area.

We welcome hen parties and families but regret we do not accept bookings for stag parties.
