I stayed at Helens lovely cottage with 4 other friends for a long weekend. We were all chuffed to bits when we walked through the door as the cottage was so lovely & homely. We all especially loved the added touch of twinkle lights. Helen had kindly left a welcome note & a book on the side with additional info about the cottage & the local area, We got a bus from the nearby bus stop into bath on the Saturday, which was good value. We had a lovely meal at the Bengal bear Indian restaurant which is very near to the cottage, luckily I booked before hand as it was especially busy. The cottage felt very spacious considering there was 5 adults sharing. Would definitely stay here again & would most certainly recommend this cottage as a great place to stay.

We loved our stay at Helen's, great location in the centre of a charming village, with a great kids park and so many dog walks on the doorstep. The cottage was just wonderful, clean and everything we needed was provided. Thanks for being a great host Helen. We hope to visit again soon.

Charming cottage in a very pretty village. Convenient location to see sights like Bath and Stonehenge. However, the house was so comfortable and the walks around the village and countryside so interesting that we ended up staying at 'home' more than we'd planned.

Helen's house was a wonderful place to explore bath and the surrounding area. It was a good base of operation for trravelling around the countryside. Would definitely recommend to families or anyone wishing to stay in a nice cosy cottage.

Helen was great. She provided plenty of information regarding how to find the cottage where to park and finding the keys. We had a problem with the hot water but Helen was very responsive regarding sorting it out. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need. It is good if you want to experience life in an English village but it is close and easy to get to Bath. We also went to Stonehenge and Avebury which are an easy drive and amazing places to visit. Thanks Helen.

A beautiful unique home full of character. Helen has fully equipped the place so it feels like a home from home. Box is beautiful and is very close to Bath. We spent a few days in the countryside and one in the city- all very easily reached via car or bus. The house was clean and well presented and Helen was a great host. We would definitely return.
