Enjoyable stay

Really enjoyed our stay here. This spot is a gem and perfect for what we were looking for, with nice privacy, beautiful scenery and great to have access to local pubs, shops and restaurants within walking distance. It was a nice touch with the homemade bread. Hope to maybe someday return and thanks for a positive first experience.

Close to Bath

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.

Great for a group

This is a great place to stay as a group, plenty of space and the pool is an excellent addition. A lot more included than you would expect and very easy and close to Bath centre. The host was lovely and very helpful

Big living space

I hosted a hen do at Eleanor's using all three buildings put together to fit in 16 of us. The main house has a big enough living space to socialise and we all fitted around the dining table. It did mean that the four people on the sofa beds had to share their space but we were expecting that! The pool and hot tub got lots of use, we brought our own inflatables and had a lazy time. The public bus into Bath is very easy and we went for a lovely high tea at the pump rooms. I can recommend that!
