We found this place last minute having been let down by another rental. What a find!
It is in a lovely little village, in a lovely setting and was really well presented and clean.
We were two couples with 3 young kids and there was plenty of space. The wood burners made a nice touch though not really necessary as the flat was lovely and warm.
The local pub was good, and the kids enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans on the canal and watching the barges coming and going. We walked into Bath along the canal one day, which took a while with the kids but was a lovely stroll. We got a cab back as it started getting dark and we were all tired - it was only about £11 for an 8 seater, and 10 mins if that. We also spent a day in Bristol which I would recommend for the kids, particularly the science museum.
This place offers great value for money. Stop searching and book this place!!
We had a great stay in Paul's house by the canal. It's comfortable, well equipped, quiet, and spacious. Paul provided a comprehensive information pack, some handy advice, and was a pleasure to deal with.
Location wise the house is a few minutes drive from Bath, or a good walk/bike. We enjoyed just taking a walk along the canal, enjoying looking at the different canal boats and wildlife. On the opposite side of the canal is The George pub which serves food from a comprehensive menu (easy to find something for the kids), and the quality of the food and beer is fine. We absolutely would stay again, and recommend this to others.
Canal View was everything we hoped it would be. The place was extremely clean, well kept and stocked with everything you need for a vacation home. Paul was great to work with. The pub near by was a great place to grab an afternoon beverage and relax. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay next time we are in the Bath area.

We spent three nights here, and absolutely loved everything about it. Paul and Christina were so prompt and helpful in the booking process, even though it was last minute. They gave us some great advice about places to eat, local transportation and places to visit.
The key safe was genius, it gave us great flexibility with our arrival time. The place was immaculate and it was a treat to find fresh flowers and a welcoming basket waiting for us! The fireplaces were all laid with kindling and wood, and as it was rainy and cold when we came, we loved lighting a cosy fire. Our kids (ages 15, 13, 10 and 8) loved the selection of games, puzzles and books, and I found the kitchen to be well equipped, perfect for meals in. The flat is finished to a high standard, and the garden was beautiful. The kids LOVED feeding the ducks in the canal. We all really enjoyed the canal walk into town to visit the Roman Bath Museum and the Abbey, and were able to visit Stonehenge, Avesbury and Steeple Ashton (for family history) another day. We stopped at Langleat on our way there, and Tinturn Abbey on the day we left. It was a good balance of fun excursions and relaxation at Canal View.
I have no constructive criticism—our stay couldn't have been better. We'd love to return for a longer visit someday! Thanks again Paul & Christina!
Great position. Clean facilities. Enough to be self sufficient , except tongs. Cute pub nearby within walking distance.
