Little Orchard is a beautiful Bath stone building which was once the potting sheds and outbuildings for The Orchard. It is a large airy space with a huge cosy bed, woodburner, bath and kitchen area. A perfect retreat 20 minutes from Bath!
Little Orchard was converted from what were originally gardeners' potting sheds and outbuildings. It is separate from our house, across our gravelled driveway. It has changed greatly over 200 years and is now a large airy barn style room with a separate bathroom with bath and shower over. There is a small kitchen area with breakfast bar, sink, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, kettle and all you need to make breakfast or simple meals. There is also an electric one ring hotplate for crispy bacon or fried eggs! If you would like a welcome pack we can provide cereal, croissants, juice and other breakfast basics for two people at an additional cost of £10.
In the main room there is a zip and link super king-sized bed which can be split into two singles. We have a travel cot for small visitors, and can provide fold up beds for small children although floor space is quite limited. The space is not really suitable for 3 adults unless you are all very friendly!
We have just installed a lovely woodburner, and will provide logs and kindling.
Little Orchard has its own entrance and off road parking space so you can come and go as you wish. There is an outdoor seating area for al fresco breakfasts, and a rustic seat outside the front door.
There is a television, DVD player and wi-fi. There is also a bookcase full of books for cosy evenings by the fire.
Bed linen, towels and tea towels are all provided. I also provide tea, coffee, and milk. There are two fitted thermostatically controlled electric convector heaters in the main room, a fan heater and heated towel rail in the bathroom and the woodburner.
I have just fitted lovely new white blinds which help with a longer lie-in in the mornings!
NB You can book for one night apart from Fridays and Saturdays when there is a 2 night minimum stay.

You can check in any time after 3pm, and please could you be on your way by 10am? I am flexible on timings if I don't have any other bookings so please ask.
Little Orchard is totally self contained. You have your own outdoor seating area in the summer with chairs and table and a bench outside the front door.
There are two steps up to the front door but otherwise it is all on one level.

Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and help you to enjoy this lovely part of the world but Little Orchard is your own separate space. You can pop in and out as you please and we are usually on hand if you have any questions.
There is an info pack with recommendations for things to do but new restaurants and cafes are opening all the time so do ask me if you want a recommendation for a special meal.

We live in a quiet lane and it is very peaceful so please respect our neighbours. The lane is used mainly by dog walkers and is a no through road with only 3 or 4 houses so there is very little traffic.
Little Orchard is a no smoking property.
We do allow small well-behaved dogs and will only charge if we need to repair any damage or have any rugs cleaned. Please contact for more information.
