Hilary is a such great host, caring and intelligent. Her dog is super smart. The room and toilet was extremely cleaned. She also got up early for preparing our breakfast. The breakfast was massive choices. We had nice chat in the morning as well. Thanks for hosting us. We will definitely come back again.
We had a warm welcome from Hilary and Alan (and Henry) and a good nights sleep after a long drive. We enjoyed our breakfast and pre- election chat before catching the very convenient bus into Bath. Good location and homely accommodation worked out perfectly for us.
We had a lovely overnight stay with Hilary and Alan. They were most helpful with maps and information about Bath, and we had a long chat about our families and all sorts of things, which made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It was our first experience of airbnb and we picked a winner for it. Thank you very much.

Hillary was lovely and very accommodating. Chattng with her and Alan over breakfast felt like being at home. The room was spacious and very clean, and bed comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Even the bus journey back up from town was a fun adventure.
A very lovely stay with a beautiful view. The house is very nice，Hilary and her husband took care of us very warmly. Henry is a very cute and nice dog. Although it is a little bit far away from city center, it's very convenient to take bus, also, we really enjoy the countryside view when walking around.
Great scenery around Rural Views, the location offered a peaceful and relaxing stay. We were given a warm welcome and were very happy with the room. Very enjoyable (although simple) breakfast. We were all in all pleased with our stay, the only suggestion for improvement would be to provide some shop or body wash in the shower and perhaps some shampoo. Communications with Hilary were good and we would recommend Rural Views if you're looking for something clean, confortable and not too pricey.

I live in Bath with my husband and our dog. Both our sons have left home and now live in London. We enjoy travel, reading, walking Henry, cinema and socialising with friends. We also enjoy hosting foreign students and generally love having people in our home.
Alan is a keen potter and we have many of his pieces on show around the house.
