Georgian Cottage Central Bath Sleeps 8 Perfect For Get Togethers
About Sam Carter
Benson Cottage is our latest family project in Bath. After the success of refurbishing Rennie House, our first holiday home in Bath, we searched for another pretty Georgian property near the centre. We eventually found Benson Cottage in Autumn 2012. Our aim is to provide a wonderful cosy place for get togethers, family celebration or just hanging out with friends. Rachel searches out the properties and does a total refurbishment. She loves tracking down vintage accessories in markets to bring a more personal touch to the quality furnishings that make the house so comfortable. We have relished refurbishing Benson Cottage, creating a contemporary, exciting space for our guests to enjoy seclusion and comfort in Georgian surroundings. It is gives us great joy to be able to offer such a delightful house so near all the major attraction of Bath, at the same time being a comfortable and quiet place for relaxation and fun. Sam has designed and set up our websites to show the house at its best and manages the day to day running of both properties. He is on hand and ready to help all the time. If you need ideas for things to do while staying in Bath, Sam can help. We can arrange for extra services such as a chef or additional cleaning if you are staying for longer than a weekend. We hope you will share our excitement visiting this beautiful city and enjoying all it's many charms.
Sam Carter purchased this House in 2012
Why Sam Carter chose Bath
The layout of the house is perfect for different groups. The ground floor with kitchen dining room and living room separates the two sleeping floors each with their own bath/shower rooms. Hen parties will love the funky decor and open plan spaces for a gathering. Two families with one or two children each will be able to have their own areas then meet together in the communal living spaces. The stairs are open plan but easily manageable for small children. The house could not be more convenient for the town, only two minutes walk from Milson Street and a few minutes from all the main attractions. Waitrose is five minutes away and there are wonderful cheese, wine and deli shops all close by. If you fancy breakfast out, there are several cafes within a few minutes walk open early that serve wonderful croissants or cooked breakfasts.
What makes this House unique
A Georgian Cottage, right in the centre of town but with all the style and convenience of a contemporary city loft. The perfect place for a cosy weekend break or a longer holiday to explore all the city has to offer. The famous Toppings bookshop is 200 metres from the house. Numerous restaurants, bars and clubs are genuinely less than five minutes walk away and all the attractions of the town no more than ten minutes level walk from the cottage. The town's main shopping street, Milsom Street is less than 5 minutes walk.

Benson Cottage is in the centre of the World Heritage city of Bath, famous for Roman Baths, the Thermae Spa and glorious Georgian architecture. The Jane Austen Centre and other fascinating museums are no more than 10 minutes walk from the house. Bath is under two hours from central London and Heathrow Airport by train. Bristol airport only 50 minutes by car. Along with countless historical attractions, Bath has excellent restaurants, bars and clubs and amazing shopping at independently owned boutiques, galleries and vintage stores. The magical Christmas market set around the Abbey in late November and December is a must.
