A great space for socializing as a large group.

Eleanor was very helpful and hospitable. The property is situated in a beautiful part of the world and has a great space for socializing as a large group. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tubs.

A fantastic venue for a big group of people

A fantastic venue for a big group of people. Brilliant large socialising space and a great kitchen for cooking. All the accommodation seemed newly refurbed and was very clean. If you have 10-16 people in your party try and car share as there isn’t a huge amount of room on the drive although it didn’t cause us any problems and the host was very relaxed about us parking cars wherever they fit. A great stay.

The hot tub, pool table and communal areas were all brilliant

14 of us had a great stay last weekend at Elle's for my friend's hen do. The position is great for Bath, and Box is a beautiful village. Elle was super helpful in the run up to our stay answering my many questions, and baked bread for us too! The hot tub, pool table and communal areas were all brilliant for a big group. Thanks Elle!
