My brother booked this cottage over Christmas and I joined him with other family members for a family get-together. The cottage is central, really well equipped and very well laid out with lots of space.
We stayed at Benson Cottage last weekend for a hen weekend. There were 9 of us split between the two bedrooms and sofa bed. The accommodation had beautiful decor, was well maintained and perfect for our needs. We were all able to sit around the dining table in the kitchen and the living room and its in a great location for walking to everything in town (without fear that you would have to walk back in pairs). Sam was a wonderful host who met us to show us where everything was. The fact we were left with bread, milk etc was also lovely touch. I would definitely recommend this cottage as a place to stay when you're catching up with the girls.

8 of us stayed at Benson Cottage for the weekend (two nights) to celebrate my best friend's hen weekend. The booking process was easy and efficient and Sam (the owner) was very helpful and always replied promptly to any emails.
When we arrived we were greeted by Sam who showed us around and helped us to settle in. There were some thoughtful supplies and nice touches provided as other reviewers have mentioned eg bread, milk, flowers etc. we also loved that there were slippers, toiletries and umbrellas provided. These little touches made it extra special! The building itself is lovely and the 8 of us comfortably fit in without feeling overcrowded. The kitchen is well equipped which made catering for us all much easier.
The house is in a great location, only a few minutes from all the bars and shops but not so close that you get the noise from them! We walked from the train station and it only took 10-15 mins at a slow saunter.
All the guests on the hen weekend loved the accommodation and we were very pleased with our choice. Excellent value for money and highly recommended! If we return to bath we would definitely book here again!
A group of 7 of us stayed at Benson Cottage for a 4-day break over the August bank holiday weekend and it was fantastic!
Initially we had another house booked for our short stay but we were let down at the last minute. Luckily, after finding Benson Cottage online we managed to book up quickly and easily and Sam really saved the day!
When we arrived, Sam came to meet us at the house which was lovely and we were also greeted by a couple of bottles of wine, bread, milk, butter and jam!
The cottage itself was spacious, cosy and wonderfully decorated. Location-wise it couldn't have been any better! Literally smack bang in the centre of Bath with only a 5/10 minute walk to a large Waitrose, bars, restaurants and shops.
We loved every minute of our girly weekend away and will definitely be heading back to Benson Cottage in the future for any weekends away.
Sam was friendly, happy to help and during the booking process always responded quickly!

Booked the cottage for 10 of us for a 2 night stay hen weekend. From the moment I made the first inquiry to arriving on the day, Sam the owner was fantastic. The little things went a long way. Bread, wine, jam on the table...soft drinks and milk for us to use and beautiful open sunflowers in the front kitchen window all making it a wonderful place. The decor modern witha hint of "old" about it.
Everyone had a great time and we were sad to say" cheerio " on our 3rd final day at Benson Cottage....
It has to be said.....we will be returning in 2015 ♥
