The Saltings is a listed, one bedroom cottage in Batheaston. The cottage has an interesting history dating back to the 16th century. It is located in the village of Batheaston and has easy access straight in to the City of Bath.


The conversion to a high quality holiday let was completed with much care by the owners, John and Jane Moon. They wanted to create a perfect ‘home from home’, offering a retreat for couples or a single person.

John and Jane have enhanced the building’s character through careful use of oak and stone to create a unique and very comfortable, character property. Many of the property’s original period features have been retained. This certainly makes it ideal for a romantic or relaxing get away. Batheaston is also a great base from which to expolre the city or visit one of Bath’s many festivals.

The Property

The secure car parking space in front of the cottage is just one of the features which makes The Saltings high on convenience. In addition to this, the bus stop outside makes it easy to get around.

The open plan living, dining and kitchen area with oak and stone features combines tradition with 21st century technology. Some examples of this include –

  • under floor heating
  • Smeg hob and oven
  • dishwasher
  • washing machine
  • full sixe fridge/freezer
  • flat screen TV
  • cosy Chesterfield settee
  • small dining table.

The spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom is a little tight for those with limited mobility but adds yet more character.

The double bedroom upstairs offers beautiful cotton towels and exquisite egyptian cotton bedding. Again, under floor heating and lots of oak and stone provide a perfect combination of tradition and luxury in the bedroom and ensuite shower room.

The Local Area

The Saltings offers easy access to Bath. Ten minutes in the car or by bus (which stops outside the property) or 35 minutes walk. Or you could take a leisurely stroll along the beautiful canal all the way into the city.
