The characterful sitting-room has a wood-burner effect gas stove for extra warmth.
Kingham Cottage is just two miles from the centre of the fabulous historic city of Bath.
There is a lovely kitchen/dining-room.
The cottage is in a very pretty hamlet at the top of a lovely valley, just two miles from Bath. There is a pub within walking distance in Monkton Combe - just down the hill.
Stairs to the first floor lead up from the corner of the sitting-room.
The kitchen is well-equipped, a friendly home-from-home.
There is plenty of room for the dining-table.
Start the day in style; try the Darling Deli just a short walk uphill in Combe Down for a classic cooked breakfast.
This is the double bedroom which has views to the front of the cottage and across the valley.
The bedroom has lovely exposed stone walls and a tall beamed ceiling.
This is the twin room - equally pretty with its beamed ceiling.
The twin bedroom has plenty of space.
A large Velux window brings in plenty of light.
The two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the first floor corridor.
The family bathroom, with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle.
Even this room is filled with character.
This is another view of the front of the cottage, the patio is tucked between the stone wall and the cottage, and a path leads down the side to the front door.
This seating-area is private and sheltered.
Another little garden-area next to the kitchen window.
The incredible Abbey at the heart of Bath, next to the famous Roman Baths.
What a city to visit - something for everyone, history, shopping, eating out.
This cottage is the perfect base for a really peaceful and relaxing break.

This 'best of all boltholes' is just a couple of miles outside the wonderful city of Bath and yet in a rural setting with panoramic valley views and a deep sense of peacefulness.

Kingham Cottage is a beautifully renovated, detached stone cottage with a warmth of character that you will feel the moment you arrive. The cottage and the location, between the villages of Combe Down and Monkton Combe, high up on the side of the valley, are idyllic.

When you book your stay at Kingham Cottage, 100% of the income goes to beneficiaries of After Umbrage, a charity providing free short breaks for carers and anyone looking after loved ones with life-limiting or terminal conditions. Since 2015, this excellent arrangement has given away over 240 free holidays at Kingham Cottage, a gift guests say is both magical and energising, helping them return home rejuvenated. For more information, please visit

The sitting-room is a perfect 'unwinding' room, with a stove in the fireplace, deep sofa to sink into, wooden floors and beams. Double-doors take you into the friendly farmhouse-style kitchen/dining-room. Upstairs are two individually presented bedrooms with high beamed ceilings and the bathroom has an original roll-top bath as well as a contemporary shower cubicle.

The cottage itself is so welcoming and comfortable that you might simply want to stay put but with the draw of Bath just a short distance away, this will also be a cottage to enjoy returning to after a day out.

Treat yourself to a day's shopping, stop off at the wonderful deli in Combe Down and head back for a truly relaxing evening in.

If the weather is kind to you, sit out on the sheltered patio at the front of the cottage and feel a part of this gentle rural community. You can easily walk downhill into Monkton Combe to The Wheelwrights Arms pub - walking back up is more of a challenge but Kingham Cottage awaiting you is your reward!
