  • "A lovely little holiday cottage - tastefully decorated, warm, comfortable and with everything we needed for a wonderful break in a beautiful location."

    The homemade scones (with cream and jam), wine and fresh flowers were much appreciated and the owners were lovely.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Loft near Bath."

    It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything provided for a self catering holiday. Lovely powerful shower. The owners were lovely and very helpful. A few welcome gifts were left for us. The view was amazing and the property was within easy reach of Bath. Use the park and ride as it’s a very convenient and easy way to get into Bath. There is a lot to do in the immediate area and within a short drive. The Loft was recommended by family who had stayed there earlier in the year and we weren’t disappointed. Highly recommended.

  • "The Loft was beautifully presented and the view was wonderful."

    The location was great for access to Bath (the nearby park and ride was very efficient), Bradford on Avon and Wells, among other places. The owners were kind and helpful and the provisions were thoughtful (fresh flowers), tasty (cream tea) and most welcome (wine)! Thank you for a memorable and delightful stay in Somerset.

  • "The property was spotless, comfortable, spacious and met our expectations and the welcome gifts were much appreciated."

    The location and aspect were to another level ~ the sunrise in the morning, the country sounds of owls, the clean fresh air. I particularly liked the thoughtful Ordinance Survey map on the wall, enabling me to 'walk the local area' before breakfast ~ finding the {secret} Community garden, hornbeam avenue, enjoying the country sights & sounds, balloon flights, milking-parlor sounds + sheep, pigs, horses, rabbits etc.: didn't see a hedgehog (but then they are nocturnal): collected blackberries for breakfast: loved it all!. That was a change from the norm!!!.

  • "We have just returned from a short break at The Loft and can honestly say that the advert does not do it enough justice."

    The Loft is in a beautiful and peaceful location with amazing views from the balcony. We could not believe how lucky we had been to find this little gem at such short notice. It isn't far from the Park and Ride which we used whilst there, and just left our car there all day whilst exploring Bath. Alison and David who own the loft are very friendly and couldn't do enough for us with recommendations of where to eat, shops and places to visit and the extra treats of scones and wine were a lovely surprise. We would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

    A great deal of thought had gone into every aspect of the loft, and it showed. Excellent shower, comfortable bed, amazing views and lovely hosts. We definitely plan to return, and hopefully for longer next time.

  • "This property was one of the best, if not THE best, we have had through Sykes."

    Thank you to the delightful and accommodating (but not intrusive) owners David and Alison for their helpfulness and willingness to provide an excellent service in all matters, even giving us permission to charge our newly-acquired electric vehicle from their domestic supply ( we did pay them for the privilege!) The property is spacious, incredibly well-equipped, spotlessly clean and located in a quiet rural setting with wonderful views over the owners’ garden and Somerset countryside beyond. Whilst being in a tranquil setting, the property was also within easy reach of so many interesting places to visit. We spent time in Bath itself (try the free Mayor’s guided walk) and also visited Bristol (the old covered markets and waterfront were fascinating and lunch in the Pump House pub was very welcome). We went to a number of National Trust properties (Lacock Abbey, Great Chalfield Manor, Dyrham Park and Westwood Manor), all within easy reach of The Loft. We found Corsham to be a delightful small Wiltshire market town (a lucky find as we only went there to make use of a rapid public charger for the car) and also enjoyed brief visits to Frome and Bradford-on-Avon (try the Secret Garden cafe where owner David is so welcoming). We certainly would not hesitate to highly recommend The Loft and hope to return there at some future date.

  • "We have just spent a lovely week at The Loft."

    The apartment had everything we needed and is situated in a peaceful hamlet surrounded by countryside yet only a short distance from Bath. As other guests have said The Loft was spotlessly clean, well equipped and the bed was very comfortable indeed with good quality linen. The property had a much more spacious feel than I was expecting and we spent a lot of the time looking out over the beautiful garden and countryside. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and appreciated the little extras of wine, cream tea and fresh flowers. A very relaxing location and I’m sure we will return in the not too distant future.

  • "Just back from a stay at the Loft."

    Alison and Steve made us feel most welcome. They were there to greet us on arrival and check in with us frequently to make sure we had everything we need. The loft was very spacious and well presented with everything you need for a few days away. Close enough to Bath to allow us to use taxi every day at a reasonable cost. The view of the surrounding country side was spectacular. (We never really watched tv. Just some.music and looked out at the view) we have already recommended the Loft to family and willdo so for friends. We will be back. The wine and scones on arrival were a thoughtful touch.

Smaller touches really appreciated milk in fridge, coffee pods for machine, tea bags. Didn’t need any cleaning products. The view of open fields were lovely. Well placed to visit surrounding areas. I will be recommending The Loft.

  • "We had a lovely week, despite the rather disappointing weather."

    The cream tea ready for us when we arrived was much appreciated as was the bottle of wine in the fridge. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. The lovely view from the living room made you feel as if you were miles away from the town, yet Bath was easily reachable by bus from the Park and Ride. A bit hilly for all but dedicated cyclists in Englishcommbe itself but you can park at Dundas Aqueduct and cycle from there towards Bath or Bradford on Avon. We recommend The Loft.

    We would thoroughly recomend it. Fabulous views, peace and quiet yet not to far from the delights of Bath. The homemade scones and wine left by our hosts Alison and David were much appreciated. We visited some lovely villages, the picturesque Castle Coombe and Lacock which have been used in making many period dramas/films. Longleat was amazing, although the Lions were dozing. We hope to visit The Loft again in the not too distant future. Theresa and Paul, Lincolnshire.

    The Loft is well equipped including a hairdryer. All aspects of the Loft are comfortable & good quality. The view from the Loft is lovely. The village is well situated to see the area including Bath, Bristol, Cheddar. There are footpaths from the door. The little hill you see from the view is well with going up as you can see as far as the Bristol Channel & Wales. Would recommend the Loft & would stay there again if we were in the area.

  • "The loft was the perfect retreat for us."

    Made us forget how much we were missing going abroad. The Loft is in the perfect position to explore all that the area has to offer. In the one week we spent there we visited Bath and the amazing Roman Baths, Wookey Hole, Stonehenge, Longleat Safari Park and gardens, Avebury, Glastonbury and the cities of Wells And Salisbury. This still leaves plenty to do next time. The loft itself is just perfect, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom (with a fantastic walk in shower,) large comfortable bedroom (plenty of storage) and the views looking out the doors from the couch make you just want to sit there all day. The couple who own the loft David and Alison could not be more friendly or helpful and left Wine and cookies for us on arrival.The whole experience was just perfect and one we will never forget. We look forward to returning in the future. One more thing anyone wanting to visit the attractions in the area make sure to book in advance as entry is currently limited, but will not be an issue if pre booked.

    The loft was great, the view from the French doors was amazing and it had everything you needed. The shower was amazing! The loft is in a lovely peaceful location, it was just a shame that a house across the way had a lot of loud building work going on during our stay but of course this couldn’t be helped. Would definitely recommend a stay as it’s close to Bath and within easy reach of Bristol too and the loft itself is lovely!

    The kitchen had every utensil you could need as well as tea, coffee, sugar & milk. The scones & wine were just lovely. Great location, easy journey in to Bath by bus. Great walks around the area. The owners were great & said if there was anything was needed, they also had a selection of leaflets of local attractions as well as maps which were very useful. Wonderful stay. Couple of suggestions just to improve the stay even more, curtains or blinds on the main door would be good, obviously during the day they let in a lot of the light & provide beautiful views but in the evening it would have felt even more cosy having something to pull across. Also, just a tiny thing but a bracket on the TV would be good, just naturally the main sofa is pointed towards the view & so it's difficult to see the TV from there of an evening without moving the sofa. But brilliant stay & I would definitely recommend & stay here again.
