“Perfect base for exploring the area”
Reviewed 22 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a charming, spacious, well-appointed and extremely comfortable apartment, equipped with everything for a most enjoyable holiday. The owners Paul and Christina replied promptly to our emails and gave us very clear directions for our arrival and information about what to do locally. The apartment was nicely prepared for us, including a bottle of wine, biscuits, flowers and milk in the fridge. The location of Canal View couldn't be more perfect. The Kennet & Avon Canal is just outside and offers a very pleasant stroll into the City of Bath via Sydney Street Gardens. Going the other way along the towpath takes you into the beautiful and tranquil Limpley Stoke Valley. Altogether this is our idea of the perfect break ...superb walking and the beds are so, so comfy at the end of the day!

“Fantastic flat”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a great week staying at Canal View with our 4 children (10, 8, 6 & 4). The accommodation was smartly finished and well equipped. We had a large double bed, which was curtained from the lounge. 2 children shared another double room and two more a twin room. Parking was usually possible in the shared car park, although this could be tight at times. There was also easy parking on the edge of the road. The walk in to Bath was pleasant and took us about 45 minutes and there were also frequent buses. Only 200m away or so was a Chef and Brewer pub which was pleasant and child friendly. There were loads of activities and places to visit in Bath and Bristol and we were kept busy all week! I would definitely recommend staying here.

“Idyllic location and excellent facilities”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Canal View. The facilities were very comfortable and included everything we needed to ensure a relaxing stay. Paul provided very clear instructions on how to get to the accommodation which certainly came in handy. We dined at the George Inn which is literally just over the bridge and were served by friendly staff with real home cooked meals. The walk into Bath was a highlight and certainly one I would recommend. I am optimistic enough to think we will be back and we will stay here. This is one place I would certainly recommend to family and friends.

“It was like staying at your own family home”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The house, location and most importantly the owner are simply brilliant!

The house is nicely furnished and practical. The log stoves are lovely. Wooden flooring makes it easy to manage. Nice and cosy living room where the whole family can sit together and plan what to do for the day. The kitchen is well equipped. Everything that you need, and more. The owner thoughtfully place a pack of milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine and biscuit on arrival, which my teenage daughters munched through in 5 mins! Small touches make this house special. Instead of just stove, pots and pans, the owners made available basic cooking stuff like olive oil, pepper, soy, salt etc. Instead of just a washing machine, the owner made available detergent.

The location is very nice. Only 5 mins ride from Bath. It is next to a beautiful canal, which we enjoyed walking alongside. Ducks and geese, and boats run and up and down the canal.

The owner communicates professionally and responded to any query promptly. My daughter accidentally left her wallet on our last day. She only realised it as we were about to reach the airport. The owner texted me to inform that he had found a wallet, which he kindly arranged for delivery across the world to Malaysia where we are from. It arrived today, and my daughter is relieved that she got back her ID card and driving licence before she goes back to school next week.

We reached home with fond memories of our stay at Canal View. Thank you to the owner for letting us stay at your lovely house.

We found this place last minute having been let down by another rental. What a find!

It is in a lovely little village, in a lovely setting and was really well presented and clean.

We were two couples with 3 young kids and there was plenty of space. The wood burners made a nice touch though not really necessary as the flat was lovely and warm.

The local pub was good, and the kids enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans on the canal and watching the barges coming and going. We walked into Bath along the canal one day, which took a while with the kids but was a lovely stroll. We got a cab back as it started getting dark and we were all tired - it was only about £11 for an 8 seater, and 10 mins if that. We also spent a day in Bristol which I would recommend for the kids, particularly the science museum.

This place offers great value for money. Stop searching and book this place!!
