Built in 1680, it boasts traditional features while offering a capacity for 20 people with exclusive private use of the heated pool and hot tub. Consisting of the main apartment that sleeps 12 and also two private lodges at the same location which sleep 4 in each, this is the perfect location for a celebration or weekend away.

There is a brand-new kitchen featuring a marble floor, range cooker and plenty of fridge space.
There is an additional outside seating and dining area in addition to the existing hot tub terrace.
To ensure the safety of our guests and staff we follow the current guidelines from the government and local council with regards to enhanced cleaning and guest group sizes (currently a maximum of 6 guests).
Bookings can be cancelled by the guests with a full refund in the case of a national lock down or a lockdown in the local area to the property.

Perfect property for a hen weekend

Perfect property for a hen weekend. We had a great time. The pool and hot tub area were brilliant. Thank you.

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!

Great setting for a big group

Great setting for a big group, split nicely between three different buildings. Hot tub and pool are a dream, and the huge dining space too! Would thoroughly recommend.

A wonderful space enjoyed by our family

A wonderful space enjoyed by our family... children and grandchildren ... Lots of lovely walks, a fabulous local shop and post office, great pub. All within walking distance. A few snags when we arrived that James instantly resolved. Thank-you.

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
