Your self contained holiday annex is composed of three rooms, which open out to your own garden and patio. The three rooms are: a double bedroom, a living room with kitchenette and a wetroom. Your living space also has a bed settee comfortable for one or two small children.
The Snug is your bedroom with a fold out bed, that is comfortable as both bed and sofa, in a bright room, (when curtains open :) ), 40" TV and a variety of stations mainly via Amazon Fire stick, but other options can be arranged.
Opposite your bedroom door is your own personal bathroom, by way of a cosy wet room, with toilet, shower and wash hand basin.
Immediately outside your bedroom is a short corridor leading to your living area. This is a stone walled room with a glass lantern in the roof, making it light all year round, with double doors opening out to your own private patio and garden swing, and a garden table and chairs, with breathtaking views both across and up the Bybrook Valley.
Normally the living area is our music and reading room, but for your stay is your part of your own personal space, with a resident piano, most likely the odd guitar and one or two "rescue guitars" awaiting restoration.Of course feel free to have a play, if so inclined.
In the corner is the cheeky "kitchen-in- a-cupboard (KIAC), which offers a two electric ring cooker, a fridge, a microwave and storage where you will find a toaster and kettle, and a small breakfast table and two chairs.
The KIAC isn't quite for knocking up 5 course gourmet meals for two or three, but somewhere were you can heat some food abd keep your perishables and fresh food. There is a very nice deli like village cooperative shop3-5mins walk away.
We're sure you'll be taking advantage of one of Bath's many superb eateries, but you will be able to comfortably put together a decent hot breakfast and tea and coffee to wash it down, and even with some imagination an evening meal or lunch should you have tired yourself out in the local miles of woodland walks in this gorgeous landscape. You are about a 5 minute walk from the well known Brown's Folly, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a honeycomb of centuries old limestone mines, and homes to two species of endangered bat.

A five minute walk takes you to the bus stop to Bath city centre.
Since the annexe is self contained you come and go as you please with the door key that we will give you when you arrive.
You also have your own private garden.
If you have a car, there is a space on our drive for you to park.
Other things to note
As someone who travels twice a year to Ireland to write, this accommodation would suit an artist, writer, composer, poet, photographer etc., as you have your own space, that is a bit quirky, and almost total autonomy, except for when we clean your area once a week, change the bedlinen and towels.
Both myself and my wife work and travel full time, but we should be around a few hours everyday, in the evening, and of course we may be away for periods.
Charming, I like old world courtesy, respectful and hospitable.
I am entertaining and sociable with a good Irish based sense of humour.
I like people, I enjoy ensuring those around me are happy and well catered for.
I am an outdoors person, love cycling and walking.
I cannot live without good books, good music, good food, trees and my family.
My favourite destinations for travel are Ireland, Scandinavia, SE Asia and Japan.
I like non fiction books mainly, what I call 'faction', memoir and well written popular science.
I write, blog, microblog and keep a hand in social media and social commentary.
I also enjoy rescuing, repairing and recommissioning cast off guitars, cellos and other stringed instruments, that others have written off for scrap. my like in film, food and music are very, very diverse, so possibly not enough space to include all of them here.
Having me as a guest is likehaving an extra family member, I don't expect to be treated any differebtly than my hosts and love 'mucking in'.
I like to travel in anything from a broken down old bike to the plush railways of Central Asia, and the speed of the Japanese bullet train.
From 4 seat island hopping to First class airflight, I'm a bit of an adevnturer.
I'd be happy with a dog sled in the Arctic.
I like to take one day at a time, it makes life less complicated.
