The Aylesbury Cottage is set within the grounds of our wonderful home Hinton Grange. Just 15 minutes drive from the cities of Bath and Bristol. Plus only yards away from an award winning pub!
Hinton Grange has been an established place to stay for over 50 years. We purchased it for our family home 6 years ago and have been running a professional holiday cottage business here since.
We fell in love with the romance of the place and we are sure you will too.
The space is completely yours and you will have complete privacy, however we live on site in the main house, so if you need anything please just ask, we are very sociable but will leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace unless you want us!
Dedicated Wifi now available throughout the cottage.
The Aylesbury Cottage is a stone built one bed with 4 poster bed, en-suite shower room and open plan living room with an open fire. Although it overlooks the main house, many guests sit out on it patio to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink as it also has great views of the main garden as it is still surprisingly private. We are a small family and only ever have cottage guests visiting so passing traffic pedestrian or car is minimal.
Washing machines are available free of charge in the communal laundry room which you will have 24 hour access with your own key and there is also dvd's you can borrow.
You are welcome to wander the majority of the 6 acres of the gardens, the only private area is directly in front of the main house, it is not really about keeping you out but more to do with keeping our animals and the mess associated with them in. We have a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog called Star but we have now enclosed in our private garden so you will not meet her unless she is with us, a goose (great guard goose, one of the reasons to limit access to our area), 9 Indian runner ducks and countless wild ducks, Moorhens, Deer, Fox (we have reached an understanding with regards to our ducks, I think), Badger, Owls, Bats and a Kingfisher (to name the cute animals in our garden). None of the domesticated animals will visit the area around your accommodation but if you wish to go into the wider gardens please just say if you would rather not meet Star let us know and we will make sure you can roam free, we are not precious about her, she can go out in the garden any other time.
We also have a separate games wing to include a full size snooker room, table tennis, trampoline and climbing frame which we happily share with our guests and is always open to you.
We live on site as a family and run a full time self catering cottage company so any issues we are on hand to advise and can also help you with advice on walks in the area and places to visit.
We live only a couple of hundred meters from an award winning gastro pub. It is a major advantage to be able to walk to dinner and no one needs to be designated driver!
We are also virtually next door to Dyrham Park, it is a short 1.5 mile countryside walk away or a 2 minute drive to the main entrance.
