The Experience

The views stretch all the way to the Brecon Beacons on a clear day, but Bath is just five miles away and the park and ride a twenty minute walk or five minute car ride. You’ll feel happy when you walk in: all is light, bright and airy with pretty colours, squishy sofas, solid oak floorboards with rugs and a log burner to warm you on chilly evenings. Cooks will be pleased with the niftily-equipped kitchen and a dresser filled with pretty china – eat outside on your balcony surrounded by geraniums in pots or at a handsome oak table by the fire. Sleep in a well-dressed bed unruffled by any noise; a warm bathroom has a big shower and thick towels. Friendly owner Jane, who lives down the road, is a keen and talented gardener – interested guests may arrange to visit her one and a half acres of lawns, flowering shrubs, dew pond, gravel garden and hundreds of roses. It’s an informal riot of colour and scent on lots of different levels and blends seamlessly into mature trees and surrounding countryside. There are walks galore – 30 minutes to the pub, acres of woodland to explore and the Cotswold Way right on the doorstep, but many guests just stay put.

The Workshop is ideally placed to visit Bath and is right on the Cotswold Way so lots of lovely walks and beautiful views! The Park & Ride was 2mins down the road and runs so regularly you can pop into Bath at the drop of a hat. The Workshop is comfortably furnished and it was so cosy we did'nt need to light the log burner. If you are very lucky you will get a visit from Jimmy the cat!!!

Gillian, Richmond

The Workshop is in a truly magical location with fabulous walks from the door and views looking west. It's also wonderfully close to the beautiful city of Bath so location scores are 10/10! The cottage itself is rustically decorated but very cosy and comfortable and we had a lovely three days there with our dog - all of us very happy and rested after our stay :)

Victoria, Salisbury

My friend and I had a lovely break. The cottage was warm, cosy and safe. The view from the Workshop was uplifting and wonderful walks and Inns nearby.

Lyn, London

In these times of upheaval our break at the Workshop provided a much needed respite. This was a return visit but a "Lockdown" first. Jane provided excellent instructions covering the precautions taken and procedures to be followed. The worshop was spotlessly clean and we were very satisfied with the precautions taken to protect both ourselves and Jane. Also we had a lovely stay it was cosy and welcomming for any time of year, and we will return.

Brian & Pam, West Midlands

Jane is a very welcoming host and has gone to great trouble to make the Workshop Covid-secure. My partner and I are both quite cautious at present and we had no concerns at all. We had a lovely relaxing week. The views are great and there are walks on the doorstep. Despite being only a few miles from Bath, the location is very quiet and peaceful.

Patricia, Derbyshire

Lovely place to stay on the outskirts of Bath. Very convenient for getting into the city using the park and ride. The Workshop is very comfortable and homely, with everything you could possibly need - although we didn’t actually get round to doing any cooking there! Jane is an excellent host and we are so glad to have found this place through Sawday’s.

Bernie, London

The Workshop was perfect for a very relaxing stay. We enjoyed being able to walk from the door directly on the picturesque trail on the Cotswold Way, and also made several trips into the lovely city of Bath, easily reached by car (and the nearby park & ride). The property was comfortable, well equipped and nicely furnished. Even with a 2 year old the stay was hassle-free. We will especially remember The Workshop for its beautiful view.

Benjamin, Hexham

Thank you for a lovely, comfortable stay at the Workshop. We appreciated the peace and quiet of the location yet such easy access to Bath. Lots to explore in the surrounding area and perfect to come 'home' to such a well equipped and relaxing base. I can't omit to mention the treat of finding that Derry Watkins' Special Plants Nursery is only a short hop away - a treasure trove for any gardening enthusiast and so lucky to catch one of Derry's inspiring talks. Many thanks for a super visit.

Pam, Galloway

The Workshop s everything you need for a relaxing break, beautiful views a comfortable and cosy home from home with a verandah to suit on, listen to the bird song and watch the sunset. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend away to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thank you Jane, we will be returning soon. Pam & Brian,

Pam, West Midlands

What a beautiful place to stay! We had a lovely few days exploring the area but it was a delight to return to the comfort of The Workshop. Tastefully decorated and very well equipped with thoughtful extras such as toiletries and the herb and spice box. The kingsize bed with its lovely bedding was very comfortable and the giant fluffy towels were a treat. It is so peaceful and quiet with just the sound of the birds, including a night time owl. And finally the view! Thank you Jane for a memorable stay. We hope to return.


The workshop is truly a little gem. It’s so nice to arrive at a property and not to be disappointed. It is well equipped and extremely comfortable. It really is just like the photos, but the views are better!... It’s a very relaxing place to stay, very comfortable for four but even better for two, we left our kids at home, Sorry kids! The two double bedrooms are really very large...walked to the Upton Inn for Sunday Lunch. If you love walks, shopping in Bath and drinking red wine siting by a log burner and looking at a view, it’s the place to go...we really want to return very soon!

Ian, London

A sensitively and prettily converted workshop with stunning views. This is an extremely comfortable and cosy cottage in a tranquil rural location, yet just a short hop away from Bath. We had a lovely time here and will be back...

Kate, London

A lovely cosy and homely stay at the Workshop. It was a freezing but beautiful Autumn weekend and we were super cosy and warm with the woodburner and heating. Quiet and peaceful, beautiful views and lovely walks. Easy access to bath either by driving (10mins) or convenient park and ride for day time trips. Loved the little touches like hot water bottles! Only improvement I can think of would be a bath but we knew it didn't have one when we booked it would just make it extra lovely in the winter. Thanks for a great getaway weekend. Naomi and Doug

Naomi, The Wirral

We loved our three days in The Workshop. It is well-equipped, comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the view is spectacular, even through the mist and rain. Jane made us feel very welcome. I can thoroughly recommend it to others.

briony, newmarket

The Workshop was really comfortable and cosy, beautifully appointed and had everything you could want for a relaxing holiday. Beautiful view and lovely surrounds fantastic for walking.

Jean, Melbourne

We have no hesitation in recommending The Workshop in Bath. Jane was so lovely to deal with right from our first enquiries. It is a cosy, comfortable and very tastefully decorated cabin with spectacular views. A real feeling of home after a busy day out. The birds are a delight and it is very quiet. The kitchen is well set up for home cooking - lovely china and sharp knives. And Bath an easy drive away. Loads of walks, super bed and great floorboards for yoga too! We had 12 blissful nights of heavenly sleeps and would love to return.

Meredith, Auckland, New Zealand

We had a lovely time - very relaxing. Kitchen was well-equipped, comfortable bed and pillows, flowers in our bedroom and very warm and cozy. We’d love to come back.

Alice, London

We loved our week long stay at The Workshop. A cosy, tastefully decorated, comfortable property with an elegant view. It instantly felt like home and we will be back! Thank you Jane.

Lisa, London/Paris

We really enjoyed every minute of our 3 day stay at The Workshop. We got to properly relax and unwind. The Workshop has everything you need for a comfortable stay including a well equipped kitchen, heated towel rails and a cosy log burner - all the little touches that make a big difference. We would definitely recommend this lovely place to friends and family and look forward to staying again. Zoe and Elliot Pearson.

Zoe, Essex

We knew we were going to relax and enjoy our stay at The Workshop as soon as we walked through the door. This charming and cosy cabin in the woods provided us with a comfortable base from which to visit our son in Bath as well as a quiet spot to recharge our batteries.. It is tastefully decorated throughout with thoughtful touches that made us feel very much at home.. A truly lovely place to stay. I'm sure we will return.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jane Morgan

  • The Workshop lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and right on the Cotswold Way. Turn right for stunning 180 degree views over the Severn valley as far as the Welsh Hills. Or turn left and walk the 80 miles to Oxfordshire if you feel like it!
  • The Georgian city of Bath is 10 minutes by car but better is the park and ride a mile away - a half hour stroll or a few minutes drive. Visit the Roman Baths, relax at the hot water Spa or simply wander round the World Heritage City itself.
  • In less than an hour by car you are deep within the Cotswolds with its lovely walks to suit strollers and hikers alike. Visit bustling Tetbury for antiques and curiosities and Cirencester for its museum of Roman antiquities.
  • Walk in the National Arboretum at Westonbirt and visit any number of National Trust properties and gardens. Nearby Dyrham Park is a must for deer spotting and a picnic.
  • You're a short walk from the local village of Upton Cheyney for lunch and a pint and a rather special farm shop for locally sourced provisions. If golf is your hobby, there are two courses to choose from within a five minute drive.
  • Or why not simply stay at home among the trees and the birdsong. We have a lovely garden and you're welcome to look round so do ask. And there is the Oak House, a romantic cabin for two in the woods-see Sawday's Canopy and Stars website for details.
