  • "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.

  • "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.

    Miss HindsJul 2021

  • "An amazing 18th century cottage."

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. Complete peace and tranquillity. We had a relaxing break. Will go there again.

    Mr BhallaJun 2021

  • "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!

    Mrs S

  • "This was by far the best place we stayed at during our trip."

    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\

  • "We had a wonderful time in Priston!"

    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. We couldn't have had a more perfect stay

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!
