Property Details

Waterfall House is a large, beautifully furnished riverside house in secluded rural surroundings south east of Bristol and within easy reach of Bath. It has recently been converted from two 16th Century mill workers cottagess to form a stunning country house with timber-framed annexe. It was used as the setting for the 'Halcyon River Diaries' TV series.

This riverside house, so-called because of the waterfall that it overlooks, has a total of 8 bedrooms sleeping up to 20 guests. It offers ideal self catering accommodation for house parties, family gatherings and long relaxing holidays.

On the ground floor is a large kitchen with bespoke fitted units, an Aga, large electric oven, breakfast island and all the appliances you would expect to find in a large country house.

Prepare big breakfasts and banquets to serve up in the dining room, which has a table for 20 beneath the exposed beam ceiling and French windows on to the riverside terrace. The living room also enjoys lovely riverside views - sit quietly at night and you may see otters playing on the terrace. Both rooms have log burners (in winter, the house is warm and cosy), and there is a 48-inch TV with Sky in the lounge.

For those not so keen on climbing the stairs to bed, there is a bedroom with zip and link beds on the ground floor with en suite wash room.

The master bedroom with large double and a single bed is on the first floor and has an en suite wet room, jacuzzi bath. It also has a secret door which leads outside to the hot tub. There is also a single bed in the adjacent dressing room.

There are 3 more spacious double bedrooms, two with zip and link beds allowing them to be used as a double or twin rooms. The Green Room has an Emperor-sized double bed and en suite bath room with double shower and a jacuzzi bath.

The family bathroom has a rainfall shower and a lovely Victorian roll-top bath.

Also on the first floor is a fully equipped laundry room.

There are more bedrooms and a games room in the timber framed annexe. Games include, pool and table football. The bedroom has zip and link beds plus a separate single bed and sofa bed.

The garden annex has a double bed, kitchenette and ensuite shower room.

Waterfall House overlooks the River Boyd in Golden Valley mid way between Bath and Bristol just outside the village of Bitton. There are local shops, a welcoming pub and a post office in the village. Being within easy reach of Bristol and Bath Waterfall presents a tranquil location for exploring both cities as well as the surrounding Somerset countryside and quaint villages.

The house has Wi-Fi and welcomes well-behaved dogs.

Prices from £2150 for the weekend, £1250 for Monday to Friday mid week break and £2350 for the week
