“Beautiful location, beautiful cottage, excellent weekend!”

I booked Lock Quay cottage for myself and 9 other female friends and chose it because the price was very reasonable in comparison and the photos of the property looked nice. In fact they don't do the property justice! Every communication I had with the owner was pleasant and efficient and the hamper we received on arrival was unexpected but a really nice touch. Apparently the owner and his family used to live in the cottage and you can really tell they have thought of everything to ensure people who stay there feel like they're at home. Unfortunately I managed to break a key for the patio doors so i informed them but was told not to worry. I would definitely recommend staying there, the place was immaculately clean and I can't see how anyone would fail to enjoy spending time there.

This cottage is absolutely lovely. We are a group of women in our late 20's and we all fell in love with the cottage. It's spacious, clean and had everything you could want! Many of us said we would love it to be our home, that's how lovely it is. Its in a perfect location too, right on the canal, there's shops, pubs, and you can rent boats/canoes or go on barge trips literally right on the doorstep. Amazing! Would 100% recommend to all my friends and family.

On arriving to lock Quay cottage with 7 other female friends it was an instant wow for all ! This from 8 females all married with children must be a first ! (that takes some seriously high standards) Every fine detail has been thought out and everything in the cottage is of top quality. Location is perfect again for everything, lots of great places to eat beautiful walks by the canal and Bath is just a short 10min train ride away. Train station is only a 5min walk away ! We all loved this place ! The only negative i could say is that it is so comfortable and homely....we found it hard to get out !!!!!
