Bath cottage description

Laburnum Cottage is situated in the courtyard to the rear of Devonshire House Bed & Breakfast. With its own patio, seating area for 4, small pond and waterfall. The cottage has a quaint yet charming atmosphere, providing a welcome oasis from the hustle and bustle of the World Heritage City of Bath. Only a 20 minute pleasant walk into the wonderful city of Bath, with its many tourist haunts and historic past. The cottage itself is entered through a stable door directly into a fully fitted kitchen with dining area for 4. A short hall leads to the open plan lounge with sofa bed (small double), TV, dvd and CD player. A shower room is situated off the hall. A romantic double bedroom is reached via a spiral staircase, with the roof windows creating a light and airy space, a WC and wardrobe are on this mezzanine level, which has a sloped ceiling, low on each side. Free parking is on street or secure parking is available within the courtyard.


The City of Bath: Bath has a wealth of interesting historic sites, along with superb shopping, beautiful parks and amazing architecture.

Around and about: The picturesque villages of Lacock and Castle Combe are about 30 minutes from Bath. Bradford on Avon, Glastonbury, Wells and the Cotswolds surround Bath. Wales is a 30 minute drive away.

What's on?: May sees the Bath International Music Festival with an opening night extravaganza in the city. December sees the Christmas market set up in the Abbey Churchyard, a real festive treat. Experience a carol service at the stunning Bath Abbey or take in the pantomime at the Theatre Royal.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are Chris and Louise Fry. We took over Devonshire House B&B and Laburnum Cottage in 2004 and have been welcoming guests from all over the world ever since. Between us we have notched up 45 years experience in the hotel industry and have used that knowledge to create a relaxed place for you to stay with a personal touch.

Why the Owner Chose Bath:
We love living in the city of Bath, it has everything you could wish for from a city, theatre, great shops, restaurants and an amazing history along with fantastic architecture. Yet, only a 5 minute drive to outstanding countryside.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Free and secure parking, so you can leave your car and wander into the city. A pretty patio area to enjoy that chilled glass of wine on a summers evening.
