We went as a group of 9 friends and had a great time

We went as a group of 9 friends and had a great time. Just a short bus ride into Bath. The location is lovely and the facilities were great. We would definitely come again

The hosts were excellent, we knew that if we had any problems Elle and James would be happy to help us and even gave us tips about the best nearby cocktail bars to during our trip into Bath! We especially enjoyed the freshly made bread on arrival and the slippers in everyone's bedrooms.

Great place and very spacious

Lovely little tips with local walks, taxi numbers, etc. Not far from Bath either for day trips. I can highly recommend Elle’s place.

It was lovely to find tea, coffee, milk, sugar and homemade jam upon arrival. We had bought some drinks and bread, but that was an unexpected extra and very much appreciated. It's a lovely cosy place and we loved playing a round of pool. My daughter already plans to come back with her friends.

Beautiful house with clear communication and instructions, enjoyed our stay and it’s not far to Bath with spacious rooms and good space for parking. Definitely will love to stay again.

We were left a lovely little welcome hamper and essentials such as tea, coffee and milk. The owners allowed us our privacy and we had a lovely meal just down the road at a local bistro. Also was perfect location for getting in and out of bath on the bus, I've always had trouble trying to drive and park in bath but this was the perfect solution.
