This single-storey detached holiday cottage is located in the picturesque village of Bathampton, on the southern banks of the River Avon, positioned just two miles from the ancient city of Bath. The village dates back to the Iron Age, with the Kennet and Avon Canal passing through the village and offering pleasant walks along the towpath, and out into the surrounding countryside, west to Bath itself (30 minutes) and east towards Devizes.

Bath has many museums and places of interest, including the Roman Baths, the abbey, Pulteney Bridge, the Royal Crescent, and also many quality shops and modern leisure facilities such as the new and acclaimed Thermae Spa. Popular attractions in the surrounding area include Stonehenge, Lacock village (NT), Castle Combe, Wells Cathedral, Cheddar Gorge and Bradford on Avon to name but a few. Hairdressers, doctors surgery and pharmacy available locally. Pub and restaurant 700 yards.

    Lovely bungalow which was very clean and equipped with everything you need. Well situated in a quiet street but with easy access and transport options to Bath.

    Lovely clean, well stocked house. Unlike most, I was not “on holiday”. I am renovating my house nearby and needed somewhere to live whilst the work is being undertaken. For me, it was more important that I had somewhere to stay that could be a temporary home, which was also close by to my renovation project.

    The bungalow is situated on the edge of a housing estate in Bathampton. It was really clean, the shower was powerfull & there was plenty of hot water. From the cottage it is approximately a 2.5 mile walk along the canal into Bath in one direction & approximately 11 miles into Bradford on Avon in the other direction. Unfortunately there are no shops in Bathampton, the nearest being about 2 miles away so the welcome pack provided by the owners was really useful. There is also a pub a short walk from the bungalow. Whilst we were staying the garden was swarming with bees. There were at least 3 individual nests with hundreds of bees surrounding each nest which made sitting out in the garden impossible. Normally I can enjoy bees visiting my garden (& I have planted plants which attract them) but the amount in this garden was not in the least enjoyable. Looking at the review book in the cottage the bees were also a problem to people staying during September / October last year. The owner managed to eventually get pest control out the night before we left. They attended the premises at 6:20 pm but by that time most bees had retired into their nests. Pest control stated they were Ivy bees. Unfortunately as I have a severed allergy to stings we could not risk opening windows or sitting in the garden which sadly spoilt our enjoyment of the cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Ivy and miner bees occupy the garden of Mayfair in late August to mid-October. These bees are generally harmless but if guests are particularly concerned by bees, they should avoid booking Mayfair during this period of the year. We had been aware in previous years that around September/October parts of the Mayfair garden are occupied by, what we understood to be, ground or miner bees, which are relatively harmless and last for around 6 weeks each year. Some guests had been interested in them whilst others, like Lesley, were anxious in view of their sensitivity to bee stings. Earlier this year we widened the onsite parking area and the pathway linking it to the bungalow. We had hoped that as well as improving amenities for guests this would create more space for guests to avoid the bees. This year there were in fact many more bees and in view of Lesley’s situation, we thought it important to establish the type of bees, their risk to humans and if necessary take action to deal with them. Finding a company to carry out a survey and deal with the bees proved quite difficult. We contacted several pest control companies who gave us differing advice on whether or not to deal with the bees. A company finally surveyed the garden and reported that these are ivy bees with possibly some miner bees. The more numerous males have no stings. The females are capable of stinging but generally do not and in any case their sting is comparable to a nettle sting. On this basis, they are harmless to humans. Ivy bees are solitary bees that build individual holes in soft soil and feed off ivy flowers from late August to mid-October. They then die back having left their eggs in the holes ready to hatch next year. In view of this information, we decided not to take action against the bees and so we expect that they will be a feature of the garden next year at this time.

    The cottage was very clean. And although we enjoyed the many options on the television we were somewhat disappointed in the WiFi. In order to connect and stay connected you basically had to sit next to the router in the tv room. I would have been better of plugging directly into the router itself with a bit of cat6 cable. The WiFi needs some work. We made breakfast every morning in the kitchen. Love the stove but the knives were very dull. A handy piece of sharpening steel would have been welcome. Everything else was great and I would stay again but would bring ethernet cable with me.
