Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to our host! We had a wonderful time at Ashley house and our host was so helpful and friendly. There was 18 of us spread over the all 4 floors of the house! It was a great place for me to hold my hen party. The rooms were beautiful and really comfortable. The kitchen was easy to use and well equipped and there were multiple fridges/freezers. The dining room had a huge table for us all to eat at. I had the room at the top and the views were incredible. We missed out on using the patio/balcony due to poor spring weather!!!  Definitely great to hire for big parties especially with each room having its own en-suite.  100% recommend!

We had a lovely stay at Ashely House. We had very welcoming hosts, clean and nice shower, well designed rooms, plenty of parking, yummy breakfast, relaxing atmosphere. A nice suprise we really enjoyed on our stay was finding out the wrtier behind Thomas the Tank Enginge used to live in this home. It really adds to the charm and character of this house. We had a great time and will come back there again.

The rooms were very comfortable and really lovely, everything was clean, facilities were excellent, parking on site is ample. A great addition was the breakfast which was delicious and hosts were always happy to help.  The place was easy to find and nicely located. Highly recommended. Very easy to get a bus into Bath.
