  • "An absolute gem!"

    Very comfortable, well appointed and exceptionally clean. So pleased to have met our hosts, who were welcoming, delightful and discrete. The property is also I. A beautiful location - quiet and rural with plenty of opportunities for lovely walks on the surrounding countryside, but also only about 5 minutes from the park and ride service into Bath. We didn’t manage to meet Dylan the donkey in the nearby field … so I guess we’ll have to visit again in the future!

    Thank you so much for providing us with such lovely feedback! We are so glad to hear that you had a great stay at Cider Press Cottage. We can't wait to welcome you back the property in the future, and hope that you meet Dylan the donkey as well! Thank you again for providing us with your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and well designed cottage in a lovely peaceful village location."

    Very comfortable beds. It was really cold weather but the cottage soon warmed up and having the woodburner made it extra cosy. The locals were really friendly and welcoming, as were the owners. There are plenty of good local walks and getting into Bath is very easy, we used the Park & Ride which was quick and efficient. We shall definitely be booking here again.

  • "We had an excellent relaxing week at Cider Press Cottage."

    A badly needed holiday for us and it was so peaceful. The owners added extra touches, such as flowers in each room, milk in the fridge and a wonderful home baked cake! Also lots of logs and kindling for the wood burner. There were some very interesting books - we wished we could have stayed longer and read more! The cottage was ideal for exploring the area, good walks and within easy reach of Bath, Wells, Frome and others. Plus the owners were very friendly and helpful. The pub in the village, within walking distance had excellent quality meals and were inexpensive. We would highly recommend this very comfortable cottage for your holidays.

  • "We had a really great stay at Cider Press Cottage."

    Welcomed with a friendly smile and delicious lemon drizzle cake, we found the accommodation a wonderful and comfortable retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. We particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove and the grounds. My son loved playing in the stream and feeding the donkeys. Simon and his wife have a beautiful home! Feel free to publish this feedback. Below is a note to the owner. One note to the owner who may not be aware. There seems to be a slight woodlouse issue (could be the time of year?). During the night, there were hundreds on the wooden table outside and the external walls and door. Some made their way inside the house. Not a massive issue for us but they might freak some people out to think about the possibility of one crawling over them at night. We did find a couple on the bed!

  • "Lovely, cosy cottage in a peaceful village location and yet just a 10-15 minute drive from Bath."

    We were pleasantly surprised to find a lemon drizzle cake waiting for us on our arrival (delicious!) and the cottage itself was very well presented and clean. The weather was rubbish for us (didn't stop us going out on long walks) but snuggling up in the evening with a lump of lemon drizzle and the wood burner going was a very pleasant way to dry off. Very friendly and considerate owners who, on introduction, offered some valuable advice about the area for us and our 2 kids. The Ring O' Bells pub is well worth a visit for a meal, friendly staff and good food. The cottage is roughly a 40 minute drive from Longleat which was a great day out for us and the kids. I would certainly recommend this cottage and we hope to visit again next year!

    What lovely comments! We really pleased to hear you've had such a wonderful stay..hopefully the weather will be kinder next time! Property Owner

    Priston is an ideal location to explore the beautiful countryside but close enough to enjoy the sights of Bath. Every little detail has been thought of in this cottage which is a comfy, quiet haven. Don’t miss the donkeys in the back field, and the owners are close by to offer helpful advice and tips when they’re needed. Can’t recommend it highly enough, and we’d love to come back and stay again

  • "The main thing we were concerned about was that we had no access to the heating controls."

    When we arrived it was very cold and we couldn't turn the heating on. We contacted the owner with the numbers provided but couldn't get hold of her. We later found out (the next day) she was in USA and luckily her neighbour/house sitter was feeding her animals and was able to assist us into unlocking a cupboard which had the controls in. A few little things were: The toilet seat was loose and moved, it needed attention. The cottage slept 4 but only had 2 small tumblers? The larger bedroom had been made up for a double bed but had single duvets which is a little strange for sleeping in.

    Many thanks for your feedback, we will look into the issues raised as we want to ensure all guests have the best holiday possible. Property Owner

    Our hosts were delightful, considerate and welcoming. The property actually exceeded our expectations as did the village itself. Lucy greeted us sympathetically with freshly baked flapjacks (clearly her specialty) which was so very much appreciated after an unexpectedly long trip from London. We loved the donkeys braying, and the horses passing on their way into the village from the front door. We were drawn into Ring of Bells with their great food, beer, scrumpy and easy conversation. The people of the village are welcoming and patient even when explaining the intricacies of cricket which was a delight to watch behind the church (also worth a stop) on the pitch. We enjoyed many walks in the area, touring Bath, and seeing stone circles. It is an enchanting place.\ We pretty much loved everything, however it was the peace that descended onto the village which seemed to permeate through to our bones. \ The property is very comfortable and very well cared for. An absolutely outstanding property.\ Moira Schmidt, June 2016\

    It was the perfect space for a relaxing and cozy Christmas vacation. We were able to make a full Christmas dinner in the kitchen, rest by the wood fire, and go on long walks right from the front door. We also made many day trips out from this central location, including the Cotswolds, Bath, and the Jurassic Coast. The cottage is adorable and located in a quiet village that is only a short drive from the city. Lucy and Simon were very friendly and welcomed us with a delicious homemade cake.

The property

Cider Press Cottage is an absolute gem of a holiday property and we're delighted to see it undergo a total revamp in early 2015, making it a stylish, spacious country retreat about 10 - 15 mins from the centre of Bath.

Built in the 18th century and situated in the grounds of the owners beautiful home, this classic little cottage is every inch the rural retreat.

The cottage is detached yet literally just moments from open countryside, with a lovely stroll down the lane to the village and it's local pub, The Ring O'Bells.

Each time we visit this cottage we love it even more, for so many different reasons, and the recent update has given it a real lift.

Internally the light colours along with the tasteful furniture give it a real contemporary feel, while all the old period features ensure the charm and character remain within this charming bolt hole.

The location of the property is absolutely ideal, a short drive into Bath city centre or a short walk deep into the countryside give this an appeal which sets it apart from so many cottages.

This is an absolute belter!
