About Tucking Mill View

4 Star Gold luxury self-catering accommodation with stunning views over the Midford Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  It is just under 15 minutes’ drive from Bath city centre, so is ideal for holidaymakers wishing to combine a countryside escape with a city break in Bath.

Winner of “Best UK Self-Catering Provider”  in the Luxury Travel Guide Awards and named Best Self-Catering in the Corporate Travel Guide 2017, Tucking Mill View is one of Bath’s premier cottage retreats.

Your Self-catering Home Away From Home…

This cosy secluded cottage is single-storey with elegant interior design.  It has just been newly renovated to a very high standard throughout. There is a spacious living room with two comfy sofas surrounding an electric stove, while outside a private, south-facing terrace equipped with a BBQ offers the perfect place to relax and watch the rich wildlife after a day trip to the city. If you’re planning an evening in, make the most of the flat-screen TV with Netflix, DVD player and iPod dock, along with the cottage’s modern kitchen facilities. If you’re not in the mood for cooking, try one of the two excellent local pubs which both serve quality food all day.

For The Adventurer

Numerous cycle and walk routes are available on your doorstep and fly fishing can be arranged on request (but please bring a valid river licence). There’s plenty of adventure and inspiration to explore the local area, which sits at the tail end of the Cotswolds in Somerset, or if you’re more of a city-dweller Bath is only a short taxi ride away. Adventurers might love the savings at Wookey Hole adventure park and Longleat too.

Or The City Visitor

When you’re visiting Bath, make use of our Bath Reward Card, which gives you discounts off The Roman Baths, Fashion Museum, Jane Austen Centre and Thermae Spa.  You can also enjoy special prices and deals across the city’s fine dining restaurants and cafes, as well as local tours like the infamous Bizarre Bath walk.
