John & Emma have a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings & are super friendly hosts. We spent a relaxing weekend there, enjoyed a visit to the local pub & the delights of Bath a short ride away. Only downside…. We couldn’t stay longer!! Will definitely return. Susan

“Hi John We had a wonderful weekend and our stay was made all the better at the cottage ?? you have a beautiful little hideaway there and we’ll miss having coffee in the sun tomorrow in the peace of the garden…. Something for us to look forward to for next time. Thanks to you both for your lovely welcome xx”



A lovely cottage in a beautiful village very close to bath. Well equipped with comfy beds. Would happily stay again. The garden was a really bonus. Helen

Beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Very convenient location for Bath and other local attractions. Lovely and quiet. Fiona

Excellent communication, very friendly and accommodating host, catered for some special requests such as providing a travel cot and some coal for a bbq. Great location, plenty of things to see and do in the area.Catherine

“Hi John, thank you so much for the seamless communication, accommodating our special requests and for all the great recommendations! All the best”

Hi John. Thanks for the stay in the Art Cottage. We had a great time, a lovely place to stay. Appreciated the opportunity to sit out in the garden in such lovely weather. Best Keith & Knight family”

The Art Cottage is a very well appointed place to stay in the lovely village of Wellow in Somerset. Very comfortable and adorned with Emma Rose's lovely landscape art. We appreciated the opportunity to sit out in the garden overlooking the countryside on a lovely Easter weekend. Parking on the road was unproblematic even on a weekend when the Fox & Badger got lots of visitors. keith

A brilliant home in a lovely little village with a great pub within walking distance, as well as a playground for the kids. The garden out the back was perfect for hide and seek too! Will definitely be coming back! Mary

We loved our stay in the art cottage. It was beautifully decorated and a great location for day trips to explore surrounding areas. The kids especially loved playing in the garden and the local playground. Melannie

We really enjoyed our time in the art cottage, my mother and children had a lovely relaxing break and it was great to come back to such a beautiful cottage after our day trips. Thanks for letting us stay!” Mrs M

The Art Cottage is a delightful place to stay, in a nice little town that is a pretty 15 minute drive from the historic city of Bath. The cottage is so bright and has lovely furnishings. The art work that decorates the cottage is beautiful. It is spotlessly clean and the hosts are lovely. I'd stay in the cottage again and would recommend. Catherine

We really enjoyed our family time at the Art Cottage. The place was such as the photographs shown, bright, clean and with an outstanding decoration. Emma Rose’s paintings completed the perfect atmosphere. Very close to Bath, is also a convenient location to pivot between Salisbury, Stonehenge and Cotswold region. Finally John’s assistance was great during all our stay for whatever was needed from our end. Highly recommended. Martin


We spent a lovely week at the Art Cottage. Wellow is a very peaceful little village with a friendly gastro pub. The cottage is very comfortable and a great base for visiting Bath, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge etc. The park and ride into Bath is just a few minutes away. The cottage was a lovely place to return to after a days exploring. It has a great hot shower and the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in!

February 22

We stayed at Art Cottage for 2 nights and loved it. The Cottage is set in a beautiful little village with easy access to Bath. Would highly recommend!

thank you John for a lovely stay at Art Cottage. We loved the place and it was perfect for getting to Bath. All the best, Jack, Laura & Noah.”

Fantastic location for visiting Bath and the local area. Perfect for a couple and one child. The local pub is definitely worth a visit as very friendly and great food. The property was as described and the host very welcoming . Would highly recommend a stay. Anna

Art Cottage is a lovely place to stay and super convenient for Bath and surrounding areas. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy and we would love to visit again! Family W

Thank you John and emma for hosting us on our weekend away, the cottage is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for, couldn’t fault it!
The cottage is beautiful and a great get away from the hustle and bustle. We throughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect location and not too far from bath if you want to venture out. The cottage itself is exactly what we wanted, cosy and quiet! Thanks so much to John and Emma. Amber


We had a great stay at the Art Cottage (group of 5 friends). Communication was excellent, check in was easy and the cottage was beautiful. We would love to stay again and come in the summer to enjoy the garden more. Gorgeous setting and views. Rachel

What a pleasure, lovely Cottage, rural Area and very cosy and quiet. Essentials provided. Beautiful location and well thought out decor. Very lovely throughout. Peaceful. Check in very easy, left alone and given the space to truly enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of life, very accommodating host. Thank You. We will be back again! Tamsin

“Thank you John for being an attentive host. Thanks again for allowing us to park close to the cottage and being understanding. Lovely cottage, left in peace and lovely location! Thank You. We will be back again!”

Great views, beautiful artwork and walks. Pub serves delicious food. Thanks and we hope to be back. John and Alicja


October 21

Top marks! a real gem of a place to stay if you enjoy tranquility, charm and cosiness. Situated in a beautiful village with great local pubs nearby. John was a great communicator and welcomed us to the cottage, very helpful. Beautiful artwork on display too. Easy access to Bath. Charlotte

A very nice, quirky, cottage in a picturesque village close to many local places of interest. As we said to you this morning, we really enjoyed our stay in your cottage. Thanks, Chris

Beautiful place to stay, we only stayed 2 nights and it was perfect. We would definitely stay again. Georgina

Just the most gorgeous cottage, beautiful inside and with amazing views! So handy for Bath and the surrounding area, just prefect! Jo

Great communication with the host, John. Really friendly and helpful. Great location and a lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Carla

I liked so much that place. Younes

Really lovely cottage and setting, good base to visit Bath & Wells. Fantastic village pub, seconds walk away, plus Nice pub in the next village , the Wheatsheaf too. Would recommend. Karen

Great little cottage, great views and very cosy. Great hosts, would definitely recommend a visit for anyone want peace and quite. Adrian and family

September 21

We had such a lovely stay at the art cottage, it was the perfect location for a weekend away, close enough to the centre of Bath but out in the beautiful countryside! The cottage is very cosy and the art work is amazing, would definitely recommend :) RR

Hey John, Thanks so much for letting us stay in the arts cottage, it was so beautiful and we had such a great time! We loved all the art work, your wife is very talented! Thanks again, Rachel

A lovely cottage in a beautifully peaceful setting. Hosts are welcoming and easy to communicate with. The beautiful artwork throughout the cottage is lovely. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. We stayed with our 16 month old and it was relatively easy to toddler-proof. Would definitely stay again. Esther

We stayed here after our wedding, and what an absolutely perfect place it was. Cosy, enchanting, and brilliantly furnished - not to mention the stunning art on display. Could not have had a more perfect weekend, I’d give ten stars if I could. The host John and his wife Emma were absolutely delightful, and we’ve fallen in love with Wellow. Mr & Mrs Doyle

August 21

Great place - we stayed for a long weekend. John was very responsive. The cottage has everything you would need and more! Nikunj.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. John and Emma are great hosts and the cottage and garden really pretty. Wellow is a great little village with amazing walks and very nice pub. Jennie

Stunning views, a great local pub, The Fox and Badger, 2 seconds round the corner, great food and drink and a 15 minute drive into Bath. Friendly hosts, John and Emma were very welcoming. Emma works is beautiful and she let us look around her studio. Lots of fantastic things to see and do in Bath. In Wellow we visited a Neolithic tomb, Stoney Littleton Long Barrow, only 5 minutes drive away. The kids loved crawling into it as it has multiple burial chambers. A great little find but the drive was pretty terrifying! For train history buffs there is a disused railway line and old station at Wellow - not much evidence now apart from the impressive viaduct just east of the village.

Absolutely gorgeous, we loved every minute. Very comfy beds, great views, so close to Bath. Have already booked fr next year. Family W.

“Hi John, Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful art cottage. The location is perfect and the cottage is beautiful. Also, thanks for the complementary bottle of wine - we hope to visit again in the future.”

Fabulous cottage with beautiful garden and stunning views and great access to Bath and lovely surrounding villages. John and Emma where perfect hosts we couldn't of asked for more. Marie

We loved the wonderful walks around the area! The owners were very helpful. And the paintings and prints are wonderful! Evalina

June 21
We only arrived home half an hour ago and I already miss the garden! We were fortunate to be blessed with good weather and throughly enjoyed having full use of the beautiful garden, particularly after multiple lockdowns with no garden at home. The village of Wellow is tranquil and the bridge/ford is a short stroll down the hill. The kitchen is compact but we knew this when booking and there is everything you need to prepare a meal plus two fridges for storage. We spent most of our time out sightseeing or in the garden, but there is ample space in the living area and a large dining table. We had a few problems on arrival that weren't the norm for the property, but these were addressed very quickly and with good grace. John and Emma are very friendly, helpful and genuinely lovely hosts. Being surrounded by Emma's stunning art is just the icing on the cake! Jill and family

What an incredibly beautiful place. Comfy beds, pretty views, quiet, relaxing and the pub is great, delicious food. So near to such great places too. We are booking to return. Sue/Paul


Perfect for our short break in Somerset. Great outside space to relax in. Ben

May 21

Our nine day stay in Wellow was just what we needed after spending months in lockdown. The cottage is very well presented and the outside space wonderful and views impressive. Wellow is a lovely village. Highly recommend the local pub, Fox & Badger, where we ate a number of times during our stay. The community-run village shop is also well worth a visit. Location wise it's offers the perfect mix of tranquillity yet close to a large supermarket, and about 15 minutes' drive/taxi to Bath. You're also close to Frome and a number of excellent National Trust sites such as Dyrham Park. J

ohn and Emma were wonderful hosts. They were quick to respond to any queries we had but otherwise gave you complete privacy. We look forward to returning! Scott

“Thanks to you both for being such welcoming hosts. We had a lovely break in Wellow and look forward to returning in the future.”

Super little cottage with lovely views out of the fields and a great location meters from the pub and the playground. Emma and John were brilliant hosts! Sally

The Art Cottage is a really lovely place to stay. It’s really well set up and presented. We had a great time staying in the beautiful cottage in the delightful village of Wellow. We really enjoyed finding cold wine and milk on our arrival and John communicated well all the way through. Jesse


Thank you John, we had a really good time , specially in the garden, lovely place!

“This little cottage provided a good base for our family of 4. It was very cosy and so stylish! Very relaxing and quiet. The kitchen was a little small but still suitable for home cooking /baking and then we discovered the huge fridge in the utility room. The garden would be wonderful in spring / summer. Our boys shared the single bed in the small bedroom and loved it. In the village, the Ford (ideal for Pooh stick) and the playground were very popular with our boys. Highly recommended.”

“What a little gem this is. My son and I had a wonderful stay at The Art Cottage. Lovely cottage, in a pretty village surrounded by wonderful countryside just outside Bath. John is a great host and I look forward to returning soon. Would love to come in the summer to make use of the lovely garden and views.” Claire

“Art Cottage was a charming place to stay outside Bath in the village of Wellow. Place cannot be faulted and we will be back.”


Oct 2020 “Great stay at the arts cottage! A home away from home! Everything you need for a short break away to the countryside with the beauty of Bath just a short drive away. A great host including sending us a message the day after we had arrived if we needed any help exploring the local area which John was more than happy to provide us with a map and written directions. Would definitely recommend and return again!” Amy

Oct 2020 “The Art Cottage is a perfect retreat. Beautiful location with a view, plenty of walks nearby, cracking local pub and Bath only 10 mins away. The cottage had everything we needed. Will deffo return!!” MW

“Lovely cottage in quiet and pretty village of Wellow. Nice furniture and everything we needed for a family of three including a huge garden for our child to play in. Peaceful and beautiful countryside with lots of great walks. The food at the village pub 'The Fox and Badger' was amazing and it was handy to have a village shop. John was a fantastic host, very helpful and answered my questions immediately. We loved our stay at The Art Cottage and hope to return.” Nicola

Just wanted to say that we had a wonderful time at the cottage, lovely place , garden and location. Thank you for being such great hosts, you have been extremely friendly and helpful. We hope to come back soon.

“We loved our stay in the Art Cottage. John was so easily contactable. The weather was a bit gloomy while we were there so it was nice to have rooms with a lovely outlook even though outside was a bit rainy. A great little cottage in a lovely little village.”

February 2020

Thanks John, we had a lovely time at Art Cottage. I’m sure we will be back soon for another stay!

“The Art Cottage has a great location in the village. Close to the super pub and convenient village shop. We spent a couple of days exploring Bath and the surrounding countryside from the Art Cottage with ease, safe in the knowledge we had a cosy and warm cottage to come back to. Well recommended!” Mr&Mrs C

“staying in the art cottage was a special experience for me and my family. the place has an amazing atmosphere and it is full of art from emma rose, what makes you feel you are inside an art gallery. everything was perfect and exceeded my expectations. emma and john are a lovely couple and they also have the cutest dog - kizzy. wellow is a stunning village of easy access from bath rail station. unforgettable experience highly recommended.” Vitoria Z/Brasil

Wow, so beautiful, cosy, convenient. Brilliant night in pub. John so helpful. Emma's art studio is amazing. We will be back. De Souza family.

“Characterful cottage with beautiful views over the valley. Well equipped with tumble dryer and washing machine as well as fridge freezer in separate utility area. Kitchen tiny but adequate, maybe needs a microwave. Beds really comfortable, small single and a large double. Cosy and nicely furnished in “shabby chic” style. Everything you need for a lovely break in the country. Big garden at the back which would be delightful in spring and summer. Wellow is a pretty village with a good pub where you’ll find excellent food. There is a beautiful church, a medieval Packhorse bridge and loads of places to walk. Easy to get to the Odd Down Park and Ride for the beautiful city of Bath- my favourite city in all of the UK. May be a teeny bit biased as I was born there. .”

“We had a wonderful time at the unique Art Cottage. It was a beautiful place with so much character, both inside and out - we felt at home immediately. John was a fantastic host, very timely and always helpful. All the extra touches make the stay very special. We would definitely recommend for a small group wanting to be close to bath but enjoy the tranquility of the lovey village of Wellow.”

“A lovely cosy cottage in the heart of the village and only a few yards from the Fox & Badger which has excellent food and lovely staff. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and is beautifully decorated with lots of paintings by Emma on the walls. There was a bottle of wine in the fridge along with some milk. Tea, coffee and sugar were provided. You won't be disappointed if you stay there.”

“The Art cottage is a beautiful cottage and the walls are adorned with paintings from Emma who is our hostess. We couldn’t meet her but I’m sure she is very talented. The village of Wellow reminded us of Bibury, the autumn hues are splendid. I would love to go back in summer. You have your car then Bath is just 15 minutes from Wellow. The cottage is spotlessly clean and is ideal for a family of four. There is enough supply of duvet and throws to keep you warm. Remember to read the instructions and set the heating to continuous during the cold winter nights. If you have kids, the TV has YouTube and Netflix to keep them entertained. I would have love to sit and gaze at the garden and scape in summer. Just be mindful there are no street lights in the night, because we drive after work we were a bit surprised only because we drive after work. But I had read this before and carried torches. A beautiful elegant and artsy setup for a weekend away.”

“Hello John, Thank you for hosting us. We had no clue how beautiful the Art cottage would be. The village of Wellow is very beautiful. The spot clean house was like a haven for my small kids. The proximity to Bath helped us pop in and out of Bath in no time. Your Wife’s painting are extremely beautiful and when we return to Bath we would like to stay here again. They add a beautiful touch of class and elegance to the whole setup. Can’t imagine how welcoming it would be in summer. We also appreciate the rain water harvesting at the cottage. Thank you again!! Best Regards, Pallavi & Guru”

“A really nice, beautifully decorated space in a lovely village. The Art Barn had everything we needed for our family stay and it was an easy 20 minute drive to visit our friends in Bath. The pub around the corner (Fox and Badger) had a great atmosphere and served good food, although we could easily have cooked up a nice meal in the kitchen.” Carl

October 19

“A beautiful village in striking distance of Bath. Very comfortable beds & peaceful space.”

“We had a lovely stay at The Art Cottage. Wellow is a small village and really quiet, and the cottage was warm and stylishly decorated throughout with Emma's paintings. We cooked in for two nights - the TV is internet-connected for catch-up or Netflix. On Saturday we walked round to eat at the Fox and Badger - only 50 yards away but no noise, you could hear a pin drop in the cottage. We visited Lacock on Saturday, only half an hour away and a full day out. On Sunday we did a walk from the cottage in the morning, then went to Dyrham House in the afternoon, also about half an hour by car. Bath centre is 15 minutes away. Note that the local shop is closed on Sundays so buy your supplies beforehand. Thank you John and Emma for a lovely quiet country weekend.” Alan

“We had a great time at Art Cottage for a girly catch up. The location is great- really pretty village setting, close to Bath. The Cottage itself is beautifully done, decorated with Emma’s wonderful art and had everything we needed for a lovely couple of day’s. Would recommend and will definitely visit again.” Rhian

“What a wonderful little cottage, stylishly decorated and within such a beautiful part of the world. Peaceful and quiet, just what we needed for a little Bath escape. The hosts were warm and welcoming, and it was such a treat to meet the artist, Emma Rose and visit her studio, and of course buy a little something for back home! X” Dom V

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful location.” SM

"Incredibly restful" Mr & Mrs S

Emma's Art studio next to the cottage is wonderful. We bought a print to remind us of our happy holiday. We will be back" Robinson Family

“Very nice place , we had great time in this beautiful art cottage !!”

“Beautiful village and cottage. Serene and peaceful. Garden was lovely to sit in and relax. Local pub serves up great food and good atmosphere. Cottage cosy with lovely artwork to admire. Kitchen very small but functional. Spotless. Would return. Great base for visiting Bath.”

“It was the perfect place for us girls who live far away from one another be together and relax in such beautiful surroundings. The garden is absolute paradise, you have everything you could ever need and beyond. John was a warm and welcoming host- our only let down was not booking to stay even longer in this amazing home. We hope to return one day soon.”

“A lovely cottage with everything you need to relax in this picturesque village. John and Emma were very helpful and welcoming and the cottage is an art gallery in itself! The garden is a lovely place to sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet.”

"Thanks again for the art cottage my parents loved it. The garden was a beautiful setting for some photos and a great place to relax before the wedding. Also thanks for your swift responses to our various emails before the stay. All the best. Ian”

Arriving for a local wedding ...."Thank you for a very comfortable cottage. The family was very very happy and spoilt!" Family J

We've just returned from a brilliant New Years Eve with you. Perfect location and accommodation. The pub was a hoot, Bath on the doorstep, the walks were everywhere and we enjoyed visiting your church and the Long Barrow, Saxon burial ground. Very interesting as well as comfortable. We are delighted also with the print we purchased from the cottage - an inspiring reminder. We will be back. Family R. 2/1/19

Incredible Christmas at The Art Cottage. We have never been so relaxed or comfortable. The beds were so comfy, the cottage so elegant and warm. Very near Bath and seconds walk from the superb pub. We will return. 5*. Thank you. Mr&Mrs Y.

An excellent place to stay, beautiful cottage and lovely surroundings. Good base for Bath with Park and Ride 2 minutes down the road. Good area for walking also. Loved our stay and look forward to a return trip. Caroline.


“Fantastic place, really quiet and beautiful and close to Bath. Highly recommend. Fantastic weekend” S

“Beautifully styled, immaculately presented and with stunning views in a lovely village, the Art Cottage was a perfect base for our weekend visiting our daughter, a first year student at the University of Bath. John was a very welcoming and perfect host.” J

Comfortable and relaxed surroundings. Cottage as described. Good location to Bath. Parking around cottage but we were allowed to leave car on drive - was a plus point. Arvinder.

“Just to say we had a lovely weekend at the Art Cottage, the decor, facilities and location were exactly what we were looking for and hopefully we'll return next year for another break. Thanks for your kind hospitality.”

“We have a wonderful few days staying in the Art Cottage, and John was the perfect host! The cottage is beautifully decorated with art, rivaled only by the views outside. We truly had a wonderful few days in Wellow. The art cottage was perfect iin every way! I'm sure you'll see us again Thanks again, A & A & S

“Great place. Ideally situated in Wellow - a lovely stay.”
Mathew/South Africa

What a find. We will be back for sure. The Gregsons

“A great base for exploring Bath and all the wonderful villages, country houses and gardens nearby. Then back to the cottage for peace and serenity. Our hosts left us alone which is how we prefer it. Great sleep on divine bed, excellent lounge area and the kitchen, although compact, had all we needed for a short stay. The pub in Wellow, the Fox & Badger, provides good meals and excellent real ale. Just need to ensure you bring food provisions with you as options in the village are very limited. Would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful, enjoyable stay in the Somerset countryside.” Graham/Australia

September 2018

“This is a really beautiful cottage and gardens set in a most peaceful village and close to Bath.John is a really kind host and I would recommend this to anyone who is in the Bath area. Jerry O'Reilly/Ireland

"The typical and pretty village of Wellow is a great location close to Bath and the university. The charming garden offers the possibility of having lunch outside if the weather allows it. The accommodation is very comfortable, very well decorated and John took the time to welcome us to show us the operation of the house, tell us directions to Bath ..... "

August 2018
“John and Emma’s cottage is just lovely! Stunningly decorated like a boutique hotel the photos are completely accurate. The walls are covered in Emma’s stunning art and her studio is right next door which we were invited to see. As hosts they could not have been nicer, even inviting us to a showing of Emma’s art back in London next month. The gardens are beautiful and they left us a bottle of wine to enjoy on arrival. The pub, village shop and children’s playground are a short walk away. And Bath was only 20 minutes drive. A perfect country getaway spot.” Z & J

“A wonderful place for a quiet family getaway. Our kids really enjoyed the back garden. The cottage was cozy and comfortable with everything we needed!” B

Lovely place to stay in a beautiful location. Very easy taxi ride into bath. Lovely local pub with brilliant food especially after a great walk. Will definitely be back. We stayed here as a group of 3 adults. Plenty of space and even had a supermarket delivery which was perfect as we arrived my train. Great communication from the hosts. Thank you ?? Marsha

John & Emma are wonderful hosts - charming & thoughtful. The cottage is glorious - beautifully decorated & filled with wonderful art. Everything you need & in great location in the middle of the village & only a few minutes wander from the a great pub! Mel R

“What a find! An elegant, cosy cottage tucked away in a pretty valley just a stones' throw from Bath. Honestly, a fantastic location. The village of Wellow itself is delightful (with an excellent pub) and there are lots of lovely walks to be had in the surrounding countryside. The views alone across the enormous garden are absolutely idyllic. John and Emma, the hosts, were instantly communicative when booking and also extremely helpful during our stay, offering all sorts of useful local tips and advice. They have clearly put a lot of thought into creating a very comfortable environment for their guests and the attention to detail is seriously impressive - from the soft beds to the well-equipped kitchen. You really couldn't ask for more. We came away rested, uplifted and determined to return. To top it all, Emma is a wonderful artist and we liked her paintings so much, she's now painting one for us! Highly recommended. A very happy place to be.” Mr RB

What a beautiful place. Really comfy beds, amazing view, incredibly atmospheric. Private and yet in the heart of a perfect English village and only took us just over 10 minutes to get to Bath. The local pub Fox&Badger is great - fab food and one minutes walk away. We will come back again.

John & Emmas cottage is lovley. Set I n a lovley quiet village with a great pub that serves good food. The few days a away was a lovley rest away from the city . It was a fantastic setting to get some quiet time. Thanks again Glen from Scotland


March 2018
“Emma and Johns cottage is a rare find! It’s simply beautiful! Fully equipped, and spacious with everything and more! Its a classy “home away from home” with uninterrupted views of the garden and valley. The interior is immaculate and it was a joy to admire Emma’s wonderful artwork on the wall. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough to anyone visiting the surrounding countryside or like us for those wanting to visit Bath without staying in the City. Last but by no means least- Emma and John are fantastic hosts; caring and incredibly attentive. We arrived late due to the adverse weather and we couldn’t have revived a warmer welcome at 11.15pm! We most definitely will return!”

February 2018
“Excellent stay at " The Art Cottage" very well equipped with everything you need, John & Emma were very welcoming hosts, hope to return soon. Highly recommend the Fox and Badger.”

February 2018
We stayed for a short weekend in the Art House and had a great time. We were two adults and three kids and it perfectly fits this company size (2 kids in a sofa bed and one in a small separate bedroom). The house interior is brand new and spotless clean, there is a nice garden outside and a well equipped small kitchen for basic food preparation - we only used the French Press coffee maker. John and Emma the hosts were super nice and quick to respond - they live in a house behind the Art Cottage, but you have complete privacy. The village itself is conveniently located 6 miles from Bath and has a nice atmosphere and a good pub where you can get dinner (reservations are required). Overall, very recommended.

February 2018
Great place for a relaxing weekend! We hope to come back in the summer

What a stunning place the Art Cottage is. We loved our weekend here. Very comfy beds and pillows. Everything you could want, plus lovely views from bedroom and sitting room. The Art in the cottage is enchanting and we intend to commission Emma to paint our view at home when the spring comes. The village is just perfect and the pub does amazing food. Thank you so much. See you in the summer.
