    Very disappointed. Cottage undergoing renovation. We were aware that the outside was being painted and scaffolding in situ. Has potential to be lovely when finished. Fridge only slightly cooler than air temperature (needs replacing) Only one log provided for log burner (enough for 1 fire promised) No parking space outside cottage ( belongs to neighbour). Sofa awaiting reupholstering. Bed soft but adequate. General clutter belonging to owners throughout. Shower/ bathroom modernised and wonderful. Log burner good (we took our own logs fortunately) well appointed kitchen. Great location. Local pub excellent.

    Great location and a Cosy cottage perfect for our weekend away. The pub is ideal for drinks or food and the local community shop is a pleasant walk away - Friday night pizza is available in the car park. The only negative is the parking - we had been told to park in the road opposite - but we had notices put on our car telling us the road is private - but the pub were happy for us to leave our car there.

    Location is just wonderful. Set in the beautiful village of Freshford just outside Bath. Literally a few doors down from local pub, which is a brilliant refurbished pub too (though closed Mondays). The cottage itself really does need certain things updating. During our stay washing machine wasn't working, there is no TV, hardly any mobile signal but wifi is provided and also a radio/cd player. Lounge needs some attention and a larger sofa. Did have to give it a really good clean at start of stay which shouldn't really have to do. Also note there are 2 entrance doors. First you can't lock from inside and the second main door you can. However, the location of this cottage is astounding that all those things are forgotten. The village is just beautiful. Great walks, beautiful views and countryside beckons just outside your door. The houses locally are all so beautiful. There is a village shop which sells the essentials with it own cafe and I loved walking to this each day as the walk is just stunning. If you wish to escape from it all and just enjoy some peace and quiet and beautiful scenery this is your place to go. The owner should really give downstairs a sorting and it would be perfect. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Lovely week, especially if you have dogs, they will love it.

    Loved the cottage and beautiful village. It was a perfect location to access the city of Bath. However it was disappointing because: - the washing machine didn't work. There was a review saying it was broken back in September. - house rules about dogs were not made clear until we arrived. I have no problem not allowing pets on the furniture. However, it was not made clear we shouldn't take dogs upstairs

    This cottage just needs a bit of TLC and it would be great. The positives were the shower, best one ever, the wood burner despite there being no firelighters as advised in the welcome book. the kitchen area although small and compact was good however the fridge needs a good defrost and the light bulb needs replaced. The fridge was not very cold despite it being at its highest setting. I appreciate pets are allowed but we were not expecting the couch covers and blankets to be full of black hairs/fur. I took these off to find the couch itself was not very clean so we used the bed spread to cover it so we could sit on it. Fortunately we only had one evening sitting on the couch as we where out from early to late as both my husband and I spent most of the evening scratching. overall the house needs a good airing but it needs someone to be there to have the windows open. Parking is not great but if you have a small car its fine. Bed mattress is lumpy so not a great sleep. I am not wanting to be too critical because as I said it just needs some TLC and it would be a great cottage. Not sure if the owners have every stayed themselves to experience what it could be if love and some money were spent on it.
