Little Orchard is a beautiful Bath stone building which was once the potting sheds and outbuildings for The Orchard. It is a large airy space with a huge cosy bed, woodburner, bath, shower and kitchen area. A perfect retreat 20 minutes from Bath!
This listing is re-opening in October 2021!

The Space

Little Orchard was converted from what were originally gardeners' potting sheds and outbuildings. It is separate from our house, across our gravelled driveway. It has changed greatly over 200 years and is now a large airy barn style room with a separate bathroom with bath and shower over. There is a small kitchen area with breakfast bar, sink, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, kettle and all you need to make breakfast or simple meals. There is also an electric one ring hotplate for crispy bacon or fried eggs! ***Please note there is no oven******If you would like a welcome pack we can provide bacon and eggs for you to cook or pastries and fruit for two people at an additional cost of £20 for 2 days.

In the main room there is a zip and link super king-sized bed which can be split into two singles. We have a travel cot for small visitors and some boxes of toys.
There is a lovely woodburner, and we provide logs and kindling.

Little Orchard has its own entrance and off road parking space so you can come and go as you wish. There is a private outdoor seating area for al fresco breakfasts.

There is a television with Amazon Firestick and wi-fi. If you want to pay for a movie I can invoice you via Airbnb but please let me know. There is also a bookcase full of books and games for cosy evenings by the fire.

Bed linen, towels and tea towels are all provided. I also provide tea, coffee, and milk. There are two fitted thermostatically controlled electric convector heaters in the main room, a fan heater and heated towel rail in the bathroom and the woodburner.

NB There is a 2 night minimum stay. There are no hidden cleaning fees with this listing - the price is as listed plus the AirBNB booking fee.

The Neighbourhood

Little Orchard is set in lovely countryside but within easy reach of a multitude of attractions.

You will wake up to the birds singing, and we are situated in a Conservation Area.

Bathford is built on Roman remains, it is known as 'the walled village', and in the woods at the top of the lane you can find the remains of the stone quarries that supplied Bath with its beautiful stone. There are some lovely walks from the cottage, and lots of pubs and cafes to visit. One of our favourites is Gather in Batheaston. There are lots of lovely farm shops and cafes within a 20 minute drive. We recommend Merkins Farm, Lowden Garden Centre and Cafe and Newton St Loe farm shop and cafe.

There is a decent pub in the village - the Crown Inn. The village shop is open 7 days a week and is a co-operative run by people who live in the village. It has a cafe, and stocks a good range of basics as well as fresh bread and croissants and local produce.

There are two golf courses within 3 miles - Kingsdown Golf Club and Cumberwell Golf Club.

You can walk down into the valley and in half an hour you will be walking on the Kennet and Avon canal at Bathampton. On most weekends and during the week in school holidays there is a lovely canal boat which serves cakes, sandwiches and coffee, or you can walk or cycle along to the Dundas Aqueduct at Limpley Stoke and hire a boat. You can also hire old 1920's and 30's restored wooden rowing boats and punts at Bathampton Mill and at the Bath Boathouse. There are also two lovely pubs in Bathampton - The Mill on the river and The George on the canal.

We are just outside Bath to the East with views from the village of Little Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel lives near here and it was where he wrote his famous song!

In Bath you are spoilt for choice with the Roman Baths, the Pump Rooms,the Royal Crescent, the Circus, loads of theatres and restaurants, Bath rugby, Thermae spa - (a rooftop pool experience not to miss, especially at night) Christmas street market, gorgeous Georgian architecture.

There are festivals all year round including the famous Mozartfest in November, the literature festival, Jane Austen festival and food festivals. The Music Festival is in May, the Christmas Market around the Abbey in November/December and too many others to mention.

Shopping is a joy as there are lots of independent shops and Bath is a very self-contained city.

You can also explore the surrounding area into Wiltshire and Somerset. Stonehenge is an easy day trip as are Wells, Salisbury, Tetbury and the Cotswolds and Bristol.

The Hauser and Wirth gallery in Bruton with its famous Piet Oudulf garden is about 40 minutes away, and has a great restaurant and exhibitions.

National Trust properties in the area include Stourhead, Dyrham Park, Lacock ( Harry Potter filmed here as well as lots of period dramas such as Cranford), Prior Park Gardens , The Courts at Holt, Great Chalfield Manor (some of Wolf Hall was filmed here), and Tyntesfield near Bristol.

There are some great restaurants and lots of my guests go out to The Pig at Hunstrete which is just West of the Bath on the way to the Chew Valley Lakes. The Gainsborough Hotel also has a Michelin star.
Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa is 15 minutes away and also has a Michelin star, as well as a lovely spa and riding centre.

A great veggie option is Oak for lunch or dinner, or the Green Rocket cafe for breakfast or lunch. We also love Bosco, a great Italian, and Mantra for lovely Kerala food.

There are loads of independent cafes, my favourites are Society Cafe in Kingsmead Square, and the Walcot cafe in an old Bakery, with a club downstairs for dancing.

There are a couple of old Bath pubs you shouldn't miss. The Old Green Tree in Green Street, wood panelled and very cosy, The Star on The Paragon, no food just great beer, and The Bell on Walcot Street, bought by locals to save it from closing and a great live music venue.
If you like cocktails you have to go to the Gin Bar, and The Dark Horse in Kingsmead Square. Circo cellar bar is also great.

We have great theatres from the old and venerable Theatre Royal, to smaller places like the Rondo in Larkhall and The Mission Theatre. The best cinema is the Little Theatre by the Spa, there is a little bar and it has great atmosphere.

On a weekend head to Green Park Station for the food market on Saturday mornings, and various vintage and antiques markets on Saturdays and Sundays.
