Bath cottage description

Renovated in October 2010 this one bedroom character cottage is located just two miles from the centre of Bath. Spread over three floors there is a generous sized bedroom on the ground floor with a king size bed and an occasional single or double bed, a lounge on the first floor, with an occasional double sofa bed and a kitchen/diner on the top floor with rooftop views over the village to the hill beyond. The top floor bathroom has a full size bath with a shower over and has been fully tiled in natural stone. The fully fitted kitchen is equipped with a microwave, gas hob, electric oven, washer/dryer and dishwasher. There is full central heating, free broadband WI-Fi, free local and national phone calls and Freeview television. Parking is free on-street parking. There are plenty of great places to eat within walking as are canal and riverside walks and the outstandingly beautiful St. Catherine Valley.

Batheaston: Batheaston is a small historic village on the edge of the Cotswold and St. Catherine Valley. Access by car or bus takes a few minutes and it takes about 40 minutes to walk to Bath along the canal tow path. During the season there is a boat service to Bath. Within a short walk from the cottage there are several good local pubs and restaurants, a small supermarket, chemist, fish and chip shop and hairdressers.

Bath City: Bath is a city in Somerset in the south west of England. It is situated 99 miles (159 km) west of London and 13 miles (21 km) south-east of Bristol. The population of the city is about 80,000. It was granted city status by Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590, and was made a county borough in 1889 which gave it administrative independence from its' county, Somerset.

The city was founded, among surrounding hills, in the valley of the River Avon around naturally-occurring hot springs where the Romans built baths and a temple, giving it the name Aquae Sulis. Edgar was crowned the first king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later it became popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      This is an entire region of fascinating depth and historical context. The area has varied geography including river valleys and rolling hills. The history of human habitation is long but expanded massively during Roman times, and played significant roles in the Saxon era and English civil war. Industry developed from a largely agricultural basis to include coal mining with the coming of canals and railways. Bath itself developed as a spa resort in Georgian times and remains a major cultural tourism centre having gained World Heritage City status.

                      Batheaston was named Estone in the Domesday Book and is overlooked by Solsbury Hill which is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and was an Iron Age hill fort occupied between 300 BC and 100 BC. It is also linked to Bathampton on the south bank of the river via a toll bridge. Near the river crossing is the site of a Roman villa. Elsewhere in secluded St Catherine’s valley is the Tudor manor house, St Catherine's Court.

                      There are many places to visit including tithe barns, ancient churches, pristine villages and the Cotswold Way. The West Country features not only the amazing city of Bath, but Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury and Glastonbury. Longleat Safari Park and many National Trust country houses are less than one hour by car.
