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