Waterfall House - Bitton, Nr Bath & Bristol, Somerset, England - Sleeps 16-20

Waterfall House

Waterfall House sleeps sixteen to twenty guests (plus two babies in cots) and is an exceptional large holiday home affording a picturesque riverside position amongst beautiful countryside which is a haven for wildlife. Overlooking the River Boyd within the Golden Valley, Waterfall House nestles amongst five acres of private grounds and provides the perfect retreat for friends or family who want to celebrate a special occasion or enjoy a few nights away together.

Formerly two 16th Century mill workers' cottages, the property is now united as one and provides an exceptional family house with spacious accommodation which also includes a garden annexe (forming dormitory sleeping and the games room), along with an additional annex which can also be used for sleeping.

Overlooking a waterfall with the river running past and lovely countryside views beyond, Waterfall House provides a wonderful oasis of peace and tranquility and was used for filming the television series "Halcyon River Diaries". The kingfishers and otters are still in residence and can often be seen on the river or terrace.

Located under a mile from the Somerset village of Bitton, Waterfall House is equidistance between Bath and Bristol (just six miles) and sits on the outskirts of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Conveniently located, there are certainly no shortage of attractions within the surrounding area for those who can tear themselves away from the peace and beauty of Waterfall House. Bitton itself provides a good range of amenities including local shops for stocking up on provisions, a post office and a lovely pub.

Easily accessible, Waterfall House is only an hour and a half drive from London (ninety minutes by high speed train) and just nine miles from Junction 18 on the M4.
