This 4 Star  Rural Luxury Self-catering 18th century artisan cottage is the perfect haunt for birdwatchers, fly fishers, cyclists and walkers as well as culture vultures. Jjust under 15 minutes from Bath city centre Fishermen’s Retreat is tucked in to the hillside of the glorious Midford Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As a result, Fishermen’s Retreat is the ideal place to relax and unwind away from the bustle of Bath. It is newly renovated with style and comfort in mind, but retaining original features such as wooden floors  and the traditional fire place with a log burning stove.

The cottage’™s delightful private garden abuts the Midford Brook and is a veritable haven for wildlife. The outdoor dining area and additional terraced area near the edge of the riverbank, complete with BBQ, make for a great way to pass an afternoon.


Visit Bath of course!
