One of four charming artisan cottages which rest along the tranquil banks of the Midford Brook, Fisherman’s Retreat was originally built for the Somerset Canal workers in the late 1800s and remains a welcoming sanctuary, tucked away in the secluded hamlet of Tucking Mill.
This inviting self-catering property has received an outstanding 4 Star Gold rating from Visit England and has gained further recognition from keen cyclists and walkers for its great storage and facilities for drying clothes. With a bounty of beautiful rural walks located within close proximity to your doorstep, including the Two Tunnels and Sustrans Route 24, you can be sure to escape and unwind with a stay at this quality accommodation.
Interior features include a traditional wood burning stove, as well as flat screen television, DVD player and iPod docking station for those who enjoy their modern comforts. Upstairs you can unwind in the comfort of the luxurious master bedroom with king-sized bed dressed with Egyptian cotton. Outside you can make the most of the private south facing garden, filled with a neat array of beautiful mature plants and BBQ in the outdoor dining area, with an additional terrace area by the riverbank and ideal for those who love their wildlife.
Recently renovated to a high standard the cottage combines contemporary comfort with the existing traditional features, making for an enchanting stay. Located less than 15 mins from the nearest pub, you can take a break from the cooking and enjoy delicious lunchtime and evening meals, whilst its idyllic location in the Midford Valley also means it’s only a short drive into the historic city of Bath.
