We had such a lovely stay, the cottage is beautiful, well equipped and very cosy. The location is brilliant, I would definitely recommend this place to stay!
We stayed at Benson Cottage for my best friends hen party at the end of May & we could not have asked for more. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, plenty of space which allowed us all to be together for the entire weekend. The small touches made such a difference - towels, wine, shampoo, body wash & slippers for all-simple but so effective.
The location of the cottage is perfect, it is within walking distance to the centre with all the shops, bars & restaurants. We walked to all our hen activities & it made it so much easier not to need taxi's & organise transport. There are also two car spaces linked to the cottage-perfect as we didn't need to worry about parking & the cost implications of this. The permits, maps were all provided - everything was made so easy, which is exactly what we needed after the stress of planning a hen party.
The welcome we received from Sam was lovely, so friendly & no question/enquiry was too much trouble. Sam even assisted in the activities for the weekend, recommending companies etc.
I cannot recommend Benson Cottage highly enough, we are already planning our next trip.
Thank you Benson Cottage, the bride to be and all her hens had a wonderful time.
Everything about this cottage was faultless. The location was absolutely perfect - a maximum of 10 minutes away from everything and near all the local historical sites and museums as well as shops, eateries and bars - perfect whether you are looking for interesting days trips and activities, nights out on the town - or both! The cottage itself was amazing - clean, well stocked and perfect for our group of friends. Sam has thought of everything - from magazines and DVDs to keep you occupied in the evenings to tea and coffee when you first arrive. I can't speak highly enough about it. Thank you it was amazing!
Thank you Sam for a fantastic weekend, benson cottage is in an ideal location in the centre of Bath, parking permits were a bonus, the kitchen was the hub of the home and was really well equipped, all rooms beautifully decorated and clean, beds are really comfortable!
The process from booking through to departure was very smooth and well organised.
Thank you once again we would love to come and stay again soon.
The ideally-located Benson Cottage was the perfect place to stay on our girls’ weekend away. I stayed with 6 other girls for 2 nights in April when we decided to come back and visit our old University city.
We arrived at the cottage and were pleasantly surprised to find that Sam had left out some flowers, wine and essential fridge items for us. We had everything that we needed to feel at home in the cottage, thanks to the very well equipped kitchen, guest slippers, ipod speakers and even Jenga.
There has clearly been a lot of thought gone into the interior design of Benson Cottage, with quirky cushions and wallpaper and very soft bed linen and feather bedding. The 7 single beds made it ideal for 7 girls sharing, but I imagine it would also be brilliant for a family break.
The cottage was very conveniently located for everything that Bath has to offer, including the Royal Crescent, the shops and restaurants in the town centre and Victoria Park. I’d highly recommend Benson Cottage as a place to stay in beautiful Bath.
