About Liam & Chris Martin
Hello, we are Lee & Chris Martin, we have lived in this area for almost 40yrs. I work in the hospitality trade; Lee is a carpenter/ builder although semi retired. Lee has professionally converted our out-building into a high specification holiday cottage. We have been up and running now for over two years. The reviews we have received have been amazing and we have enjoyed welcoming all of our guests, and look forward to meeting future guests. Our two sons have grown and flown the nest.
Liam & Chris Martin purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Liam & Chris Martin chose Bath
We brought this derelict property and renovated it while living in a caravan with our two boys. We love this area and only moved a short distance from our previous home to live here. We enjoyed the challenge of the project and there was plenty of scope to expand. We love the fact that we can be in the bustling city of Bath by a short drive, and we have the rolling countryside on our doorstep. The perfect balance for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
Both bedrooms boast an en-suite bathroom.

Absolutely beautiful cottage located in an ideal location to explore the surrounding areas.
The cottage was beautiful, it was very clean and we were very impressed with the high spec of the interior. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms were light and spacious with great ensuites. Great dining and lounge area. The garden was great and it was very peaceful. Chris and Lee were fabulous hosts! The welcome pack was great and they were very friendly. Our children loved hanging out in their garden and playing with Dylan the dog! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay, it was everything we needed and much more. We recommend you stay, you won’t be disappointed.
Outstanding holiday cottage
What a truly wonderful holiday cottage this is! We have just returned from a week's stay and have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Somerset. Beech cottage is surely one of the best letting experiences we have had, from the moment we stepped inside. A generous welcome pack was waiting from the owners and everything was immaculate in presentation. The craftsmanship that has gone into the design of the cottage is fabulous and every inch of space utilised to the best advantage. As I wrote in the visitor's book, if I owned a holiday cottage, I would want it to be just like this one. Knowing how fussy I am, I couldn't think of a better compliment! Wholehearted thanks, Chris and Liam, for your efforts in providing a unique and beautiful place to stay.
Hi Nigel, Catherine, Madeline & Isabelle. Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and would love you to stay again some other time. And thank you for leaving everything so clean and tidy! Chris & Liam
Fantastic, beautiful cottage & easy acess
Had a 4 night stay here for my sisters 30th birthday. This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in! The owners were very welcoming and the welcome pack and birthday card were very much appreciated. Everything needed was provided and all was extremely clean. Ideal location for visiting Bath. Managed to visit the Wookey Hole Caves, Roman Baths, Fashion Museum, American Museum in Britain and Cheddar Gorge. Would without a doubt recommend this cottage to those looking for a quiet getaway and we hope to stay here again ourselves.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Beech Cottage. We would love you to visit us again, as we mentioned you do get a discount for being a returning guest!
The property is perfect in every way. The hospitality of the owners fantastic. Welcome pack on arrival of freshly made bread, jam, all the essentials including wine and chocolates. Nothing is too much trouble. It is a home from home, perfectly situated to tour bath and the surrounding areas and sites of great historical value and leisure, fun activities for the children.
We enjoyed our stay here no end, would and probably will return again at some future date.

A wonderful get away from it all place
The booking process the wonderful welcome, the log burner, little touches on arrival, the cleanliness, the location, the beautiful interior - this place is without doubt one of the nicest self catering places we have stayed in! The photos just do not do it justice! Be prepared to have your expectations exceeded. We loved it. We wanted to get away from it all and Beech Cottage ticked all the boxes! You will not be disappointed. We loved the open plan layout and the cosy lounge area with the roaring wood burner especially on Sunday morning with a cuppa and a book. Magical and so relaxing. Thank you Chris and Liam for creating such a great cottage 😀
WOW!! Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so pleased you had such a great relaxing time!
We only stayed for two nights but its was a prefect break. The cottage is beautiful and spotless. It so clean but very homely at the sametime. When we arrived we have home made bread the fire was on ready for us. I would like to say a massive thank you for letting us stay is was a wonderful break and we will be back next so we can really enjoy Bath. Lisa, Shane, Matt and Mand
Bristol airport approx 26 miles. Car essential.
Bath is 7 miles away, and Bristol is a distance of 19 miles - home to Brunel's SS Great Britain Clifton suspension bridge and the floating harbour. The medieval city of Wells is 13 miles away with the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace, travel another 2 miles to see Wookey Hole and the Cheddar caves. And a little further on is the inimitable town of Glastonbury. Longleat House and Safari Park 17 miles home to the Marquess of Bath and over 500 different animals - a great day out for the children.
Free guided tours in Bath twice daily at 10.30am and 2.00pm are a must for visitors to Bath. And don't miss the Roman Baths, the Circus, the Royal Crescent and blow-out tea at the Pump Room.
There are many villages within easy reach, Bradford-on-Avon, with its fine array of Saxon, Medieval and Tudor architecture, a 14th century tithe barn, and the Kennet and Avon canal. There is a bustling pedestrian shopping area with small independent shops and a good choice of tea rooms and restaurants. The historic market town of Frome, has many listed buildings and attractive side streets, with a number of craft shops and galleries. National Trust places nearby include Stourhead, Dyrham Park. For shopping, try the Clark's Village in Street, and the Mulberry Factory outlet shop in Shepton Mallet.
The two tunnels project has just been completed on the old Dorset and Somerset train line, and offers the longest cycle/walk through a tunnel in Britain. You can join it just over a mile from us, a great hit for cyclists and walkers.
