  The Highlights...

  • Central heating and a wood burning stove make this woodland retreat wonderfully cosy any time of year.
  • This newly constructed cabin was built with an applaudable emphasis on repurposed materials - from the roof made from recycled Cornish slate, to the sanded scaffold plank floors.
  • The park and ride to Bath is walkable to or just five minutes by car.
  • The cabin is situated 700ft up, which means you get to enjoy the most glorious views.
  • The raised deck is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or a candlelit supper.
  • A cosy mezzanine level with single mattress is perfect for a third guest.

  You should know...

  • There is room for an extra guest in the mezzanine bedroom at 25 per night.
  • Due to Covid-19 short breaks are check in Friday or Saturday for 3 or 4 nights. This is to ensure big gaps of 72 hours between guests when the house is empty.
  • We also can take breaks for a week or longer.
  • Self check in is easy, parking is adjacent to the house.
  • Pay a 50 non-refundable deposit, but the balance is required only when it's certain you can come.

  The Detail...

The Oakhouse Bath has the most impressive location. Its position 700ft above an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means you get views galore. Inside the cabin youll find a beautifully cosy interior with reclaimed materials making it wonderfully unique. Choose to hide away in the oak woodland, head out on the Cotswolds Way or explore the charming Georgian town of Bath. And at the end of the day, relax on your own private deck or snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove.

Inside the cosy cabin is a beautiful open-plan kitchen, living and dining space. The unique interior is lovingly put together with repurposed materials used throughout - from the sanded scaffold plank flooring to the old school laboratory sink in the bathroom. Light floods in through the large windows, and the beautiful vaulted ceiling adds a real sense of space. The sitting and dining area has a wood burning stove at its heart. Cosy down on the sofa in front of the fire, or enjoy a relaxed supper at the beautiful dining table. Theres no television (too many trees for reception) but there is a well-stocked bookshelf and plenty of board games, perfect for really switching off. For those that feel the need to connect, there is also Wifi.

The kitchen boasts beautiful oak work surfaces, open shelving and a large Belfast sink. And, we can pretty much guarantee that you have never chopped vegetables to a finer view. On a practical note, theres an induction hob, oven, microwave and even a dishwasher.

The other side of the cabin houses a small but perfectly formed bathroom, complete with a full size power shower and fluffy towels. And the stunning bathroom door from India is quite the talking point. Situated above the bathroom, accessed by a ladder, you will find a cosy mezzanine area with a single mattress - ideal for a third guest.

The bedroom, with its large king size bed and dual aspect windows, is stunning. And the bed is elegantly dressed in crisp linen and soft throws for a super-comfy night's sleep.

Outside, you have a covered terrace - which makes a good spot for muddy boots or to sit out a passing shower. For al-fresco dining there is a wonderful decked area that is raised out into the woodland. Surrounded by lanterns and with a dining table and chairs, its seriously romantic. Below the wooden deck is your own BBQ and fire pit area meaning that you can really get to grips with the good life.

The location is perfect for a romantic escape. Indulge in some country strolls - youve really no excuse as the Cotswolds Way runs directly along the woodland boundary There are also three delightful pubs that are accessible via a walk across some lovely countryside. If you feel the need to get out and enjoy some culture then the gorgeous Georgian town of Bath is just a ten minute drive away (The park and ride to Bath is walkable to or 5 minutes by car). With plenty of impressive architecture, its overflowing with history and culture. Indulge yourselves at the impressive Thermal Bath Spa, or head out to explore Bath's vibrant dining scene where theres everything from pretty tearooms to trendy cafes, and high-end restaurants to cosy gastro-pubs.

"Perfect place to escape the city for a winter birthday treat. Gorgeous cabin with thoughtful decorative touches inside and out. I was delighted to have a little birthday treat left for me and the log burner was super cosy.
So easy to get to from Bristol too. From north Bristol it turned out cheaper for 2 of us to get a taxi instead of the train! Very easy to reach without a car in general.
Nice and secluded and with an awesome view over the city.
Thank you for a lovely birthday. X"
