A beautiful, cosy cottage in the picturesque hamlet of Pipehouse, Freshford.

The cottage offers two bedrooms - one large double room with a double bed, and a smaller room with a single bed, a second pull out single bed and a cot. There are also two single air mattresses available, which can be used downstairs in the living room. An additional travel cot is also available.
The cottage sleeps 4 (1 double bed, 1 single bed and 1 single pull out bed) but can fit 6 when using the 2 single air mattresses in the living room downstairs.

This is our family home so please look after it as you would your own home!
I'm originally from Northern Ireland but I moved to England in 2007. I live in the countryside just outside Bath with my husband and young daughter. We love travelling and exploring new places, and hope that others can enjoy our home while we're away!
