Brooks’ View for those romantic days away

Brooks’ View is the epitome of the favoured cottage for those seeking a special place to stay.  Unashamedly a luxury romantic self-catering cottage 12 minutes from Bath city centre, the cottage is ideal for weekends away, mini moons, honey moons or just a few days’ escape in the delightful countryside.

Many walks for walkers and splendid for cyclists being on Sustrans Two Tunnels Route 24.



Sleeping 2 in the master bedroom, recently converted Brooks’ View not only has a luxury 1400 pocket sprung bed but also  a decadent bathroom with  a large walk in shower and a Victorian roll top claw bath.  The cosy living room has a comfortable sofa and a snuggle sofabed for that extra guest. In the winter the traditional wood burning stove provides a lovely focal point and also extra heat. There is a small dining area with a traditional pine table and 4 chairs.  The kitchen is fully equipped and has both a dishwasher and a clothes washer. On those halcyon days you can easily breakfast on the patio just outside the cottage.

Built in the early 1800s, Brooks’ View is one of 4 artisan cottages built for the Somerset Coal Canal workers in the tiny hamlet of  Tucking Mill, in the Midford Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  An area of total peace and calm yet so close to the City.  An ornithologist’s delight too..with the bird feeders attracting gold finches, coal finches, blue tits, herons and nuthatches to mention a few.

Down by the brooks there is a summerhouse with a patio and a lovely stone barbecue.  Ideal for enjoying that glass of cool crisp wine.  Flyfishing can be arranged if you fancy a breakfast trout.


Lying in the historic hamlet of Tucking Mill there is plenty to interest our guests.  The wildlife lovers will adore the birds and the geologists the delights of exploring the basis of the structure of the UK.  this is the home of William Smith and many of his original surveys were done around this area.

Bath is the most obvious attraction with the historic Abbey where Edgar the first King of England was crowned, the Roman Baths and the Thermae Spa together with the most wonderful Georgian architecture much loved by Jane Austen and her fans today.  At only 20 minutes distance there is Longleat, the Saxon town of Bradford on Avon, the National Trust village of Lacock used in Jane Austen and Harry Potter films and 45 minutes drive takes you to . And there are many more…Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Bristol with the Science Museum and famous zoo.


There is free Wifi throughout the cottage and there is a small TV in the bedroom as well as a larger flat screen in the sitting room. An iPod Docking station is also provided.  There is a selection of DVDs, a variety of books as well as some board games.


Free private parking space for one car is provided and a second by arrangement


The benefits of the Reward Card with special discounts and extras like 3 hours for 2 in the Thermae Spa are available in this cottage.  Full details in the cottage and on this website.
