  • "Angela the owner is a lovely,friendly and helpful lady and there is nothing she wouldn't do to help you."

    The cottage is spacious and clean and the bed is an experience. The only drawback is, not to park under the trees. Thank you. A&K Robson

  • "We stayed for a week in Aylesbury Cottage, very comfortable, every thing was there that we need, Angela very kindly left us a few goodies, which we would like to thank her for."

    We would certainly stay there again, it was so peaceful even though it was near the motorway, if you want a quiet restful holiday, that is the place to stay.

  • "The setting is perfect, so private and peaceful but close to Bath and Bristol if you want to get out and about."

    Angela the owner of the cottages is delightful and so helpful and friendly. The cottage is very quaint, comfortable and has absolutely everything you need, feels very homely. I can't think of anything that would have improved my stay at the Aylesbury Cottage, Hinton Grange and I will definitely return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a very pretty, rural setting."

    Well appointed, with free access to a laundry room if required. Peaceful and quiet. Ideal location for visiting the many National Trust properties in the area, especially as Dyrham Park is practically on the door step. Bath and Bristol are an easy, short drive away and there are good food shopping facilities in the nearby towns and villages for easy self catering. The welcome was warm and friendly and the food and drink treats inside the cottage, including a seasonal Easter egg, were much appreciated. We will be visiting again.

    It was even better than we had hoped for. The cottage was very well furnished, equipped and finished. Our hosts were great and there were a lot of little touches like the bottle of wine, bread, milk etc waiting for our arrival which made us feel very welcome. I would certainly recommend it to anyone and the location is perfect for visiting Bath and many other local attractions or just sitting in peaceful surroundings and unwinding, whatever you want from your holiday.

  • "We had a great weekend at Hinton Grange."

    The open fireplace was a treat and the cottage had a perfect mix of modern and old - it's hard to put these together sometimes but the decoration was very attractive and cosy. The owner was incredibly friendly and even picked up something for us at the market that we forgot at home. There was a care package of eggs, milk, tea, sugar, coffee, and freshly made bread for us when we arrived. There are lots of walking paths nearby and a nice pub just a 5 minute walk away where we had Sunday Lunch. I would definitely recommend this property and we intend to stay there again.
