I cannot add much more to the other excellent reviews on here. The accommodation was clean and well presented.
Some useful things for others to know… Various breakfast items were left for us; a choice of mini Kellogg’s cereals, Alpen museli, semi-skimmed and skimmed milk in the fridge, along with ham, eggs, yoghurts and orange juice. There was also fresh fruit, honey, jam, marmalade, butter, sugar, instant coffee and instant decaf coffee, two types of hot chocolate, various individually wrapped teabags and ground coffee too.
Hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner were all available in the bathroom.
There is a decent sized L-shape kitchen area with a small table, so if you are staying for a few days you could comfortably cook (oven, hob, microwave, pot & pans etc.) Washing-up liquid, cloths and tea towels are provided. There’s even a washing machine!!!
There is also a TV in the bedroom, with a supply of DVDs. Magazines are dotted around the place, but not really any for men to read. There’s a good list of local eateries provided in the accommodation, including takeaways.
Caroline was a great host and her lovely freshly-baked bread was a real treat.
For us, the two major benefits of staying here were the location (so quiet but really near to the city centre, just 5-10 mins walk) and the fact you are totally on your own schedule… get up for breakfast when you are ready!
We had a lovely, totally relaxing time.

The Garden House has been refurbished to a high finish. It is light and airy and sleeps 4 - double bedroom and pull out double bed. There is an area upstairs with steep stairs that can act as a chill out area or can accommodate another 2 single beds if required (with additional costs for 6). The kitchen is well appointed if you want to cook with oven, microwave and hob. There is a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge. Beautiful bathroom/wet room with walk in shower and also a bath. The Kennet and Avon Canal is 1 minute away with beautiful walks. The local supermarket is similar distance and very well stocked for most things. National Trust land only a few minutes away for great walks and beautiful views of the city. It is really quick and easy to get into the city and only takes a 10 minute stroll to be amongst the shops, sites, bars and restaurants. The Garden House is very close to the city centre. It takes no more than 10 minutes to walk down the hill and into the city. Number 18 (university bus) bus stops on Bathwick Hill nearby by the Tesco mini-supermarket. ... more less
