General information:
Your friendly hosts are Jeff - Mayor of Bath 1995-96- and his partner Jay who was born in the city. We will give you a useful city map and advice on how to make the most of your time here. Whichever country and culture you come from we will warmly welcome you in our home and to our beautiful World Heritage city.

Beech Cottage is a unique and charming home tucked away from the road in a secluded wooded setting - yet the nearest bus stop is just 30 metres from our front gate and the number 1 bus takes only 9 minutes to reach us from Bath bus station. STAYING HERE WITHOUT A CAR IS VERY EASY.

Step off the bus at the Combe Road stop (ring the bell when you see the King William IV pub) and you will find the sign to Beech Cottage pointing down the rustic lane in front of you.

The pleasant downhill walk into Bath centre takes around 25 minutes or a little longer if you take the off-piste alternative route with lovely views over the city.

A taxi to or from town costs about £8 depending on the time of day and the number of passengers.

Eat breakfast in our huge AGA cosy kitchen or outside on the terrace. Breakfast always includes - pressed or squeezed juices - freshly prepared fruit salad - muesli - cereals - low fat milk and soya - yoghurt -breads - spreads - good quality teas and coffee. Help yourself to ice, filtered water and fresh milk in the kitchen at any time.

Within a few minutes walk of Beech Cottage we have the Forester and Flower pub/restaurant, the award winning Darling Deli,and a Co-op supermarket (open 08.00 to 22.00 daily).

FREE parking. FREE city map and FREE Wi-Fi. Ironing board and iron available on request.

When sunny you can snooze, read or play petanque in our tranquil garden.

Children, including babies, are always welcome subject to prior agreement on sleeping arrangements. For infants up to 3 years staying in the KING bed room we have a Mamas and Papas cot bed. There is also a stair safety gate. Mums and dads are welcome to relax in the kitchen after baby's bedtime.

Bedrooms and the front door are fitted with euro-locks and you are protected by mains powered smoke alarms.

Jacqui And Jeff

Jacqui And Jeff

Bath, United Kingdom · Member since July 2012

Expect a warm welcome when you arrive at Beech Cottage.

Living in Bath since 1968 and being a Bath City Councillor for many years (Mayor of Bath 1995-96) taught Jeff much about the history and fabric of Bath. His beautiful wife Jacqui was born only a mile away from Beech Cottage, then spent most of her life in Jamaica and London - returning to Bath in 2012.

They both value the simple pleasures and comforts in life; and love hosting their guests and helping them enjoy their time in Bath.

Healthy eating and lifestyle are important to us. A self service breakfast is included in the room rate: teas and infusions - fresh filter coffee - muesli - cereals - bread - juices - spreads - fresh fruit. Low fat milk and soya alternative are always available. There is a small gym you are welcome to use during your stay.

Jeff has worked in the US and Canada and travelled extensively. In 2011 he sailed with 3 friends from New Zealand and spent ten weeks in the South Pacific. 10 days and nights - non stop from Opua to northern Tonga in a 45ft yacht was quite an experience :-) From there we went on to Fiji, and Australia

Five things we can't live without? Good food - music - travel - conversation with friends old and new - companionship with each other.
