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.

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.

Why the Owner Chose Bath, UK:
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.
