A spacious, open plan, self-contained, self-catering studio apartment in a beautiful church conversion, in a quiet semi-rural setting just 8 miles south of the World Heritage city of Bath. It's a perfect romantic getaway for a couple, or a relaxing space for up to four good friends/family. A unique and peaceful place to stay, and a great base for exploring the beautiful Somerset countryside and the South West.
The Studio is in one half of a Grade II listed former Victorian church, artfully transformed into a large and modern, open plan apartment which sleeps 2-4 people. It's quiet and spacious, a perfect space to relax, with everything you need for a comfortable weekend or longer stay.
Even though the building is almost 170 years old, the conversion gives it a light and airy, modern feel whilst retaining some features of the original church. The space was for many years used as a photographic studio where the owners worked together to create images for magazine features, books and advertising.
There's a comfortable king sized bed, plus a double futon which can sleep up to two extra guests, but please note that these are both in the same space so you need to know each other well! You also have your own separate shower room. The lounge area has a Smart tv/dvd player/Netflix/Freeview, free wi-fi, plus a selection of books, DVDs, games and local maps. The kitchen is very well-equipped, with a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, double oven and microwave, and a comfortable dining area. We will welcome you with some basic provisions, including butter, eggs, milk, fruit juice and freshly made bread, cake or cookies.
Underfloor heating will keep your toes warm, and there's a fan heater too. For more chilly days the woodburner stove makes the apartment extra cosy.
We're in a peaceful, semi-rural location just 8 miles south of the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath, and it's a great base for exploring the area.

We have two cats and a dog who live in the adjoining building, but they are excluded from the studio apartment at all times, and quite shy of strangers.
We would like to you relax and enjoy your stay, so please make yourselves at home, and all we ask is that you leave the studio as you find it.
We may be able to be flexible on check-in and check-out times depending on other bookings. Please ask.
