From the front, our house looks fairly unassuming, with a pretty front garden, and an easily-accessible driveway.
But once you are inside, you will see that the house is really huge! Even the entrance lobby is a room in itself with an armchair. It used to be our piano room. There is a large utility room with loo/toilet and large washing machine and tumble drier. A lovely large lounge that opens out with French doors onto the deck and hot tub. The stairs are so easy to use, and open out onto the wide landing, with an armchair. The master bedroom is very big with vaulted ceiling and a SUPER KING SIZE BED, a balcony and its own en suite bathroom. Two more large bedrooms each with with 2 zip 'n link beds making up a SUPER KING SIZE BED. Then the 4th bedroom with a double bed. Then the 5th bedroom with King Size bed. All the bedrooms, and indeed all of the house is filled with light. A bright house. Downstairs there is a large Farmhouse-kitchen, with a long oak table where you can all eat together. Almost the whole of the far wall of the farmhouse kitchen opens out with folding sliding doors onto the massive deck, where you have a comfortable octagonal dining area, a wonderful sunken hot tub for 8 people comfortably, 3 wide steps to the huge lawn where you can play badminton, and small 'woodland areas' where kids can play hide 'n seek. There is also a very big log cabin (the Barn) with a mezzanine floor, and a pool table, full-size table tennis table and a rowing machine (not a full gym, please note). In the far corner of the garden is a scaled-down version of an Australian Queenslander-style house (the Lodge), which is fully insulated. Eventually, it will become a self-contained Lodge. For now, it is an interesting place to enjoy looking at and from there you can view the whole garden.

You will be able to access the whole of the property, except for the loft, Lodge and store room. In the future, the Lodge will be available for holistic events like meditation and healing, and also massage. We also intend to create a sauna in the garden. Please remember that when you are there, the house is yours, so please keep some TLC for the house-plants? Thanks so much!
We have done our best to make Fieldgate as guest-friendly as possible, but please remember that the huge deck is made of real timber, and that can be a little slippery when wet, so please look after yourselves.....

One of us will always be available for you, should you need any help. Full contact details will be available.

The road outside is almost totally quiet, as it is a no through road, and parking is not allowed on this road. You don't need to think about parking, as the driveway can easily hold 8 normal cars.
There are lovely Skyline walks all around the countryside that surrounds us, together with the famous American museum and Bath Golf course, both within walking distance. The garden is huge, and so quiet, surrounded by trees, making it a private retreat in a countryside setting, yet within 5 minutes to the town centre. The name of the house came from when all of this area was a huge farm, and the house gate was the gate to a field. That's why every year multitudes of wild flowers emerge all over the lawn. The total garden area is a quarter of an acre. Living here like being on holiday all the time!

We are literally right next door to the University of Bath.
The bars and cafes and the sports village in the university with the big Swimming Pool and Gym are open to everyone.
Or buses leave at the end of the road every 6 minutes to the centre of Bath, so you can leave your cars at home on the driveway.
Bath is a shopper's Paradise!

Just to emphasise: no wet wipes in the toilets, please. Please make sure that you do not park on the roadside as you may get a ticket. But you will have your own very large private driveway, that will accommodate 8 cars at least.
Please bring your slippers and remove your shoes on entering, because shoes are not to be worn in the house.
Strictly no smoking anywhere on the property please, including the garden and outbuildings.


Règlement intérieur
Non fumeur
Ne convient pas aux animaux
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait entre 16:00 et 00:00

The whole house will be yours to enjoy alone.
Events and parties allowed only if you can convince me that you will look after the house and not annoy the neighbours with overly loud noise, especially after 10pm.
Please bring your slippers and remove your shoes when you arrive. No shoes can be worn anywhere in the house.
Please follow the instructions when opening and closing the cover on the hot tub, as damage can be caused, otherwise. Please NEVER switch the hot tub off. It will be too cool for you the next day.
The hot tub cover and lifter are new, but I was not happy with the lifter's ability to keep the cover up in a breeze.
So I have added 2 fail-safe safety straps that you must use by hooking the ends onto the hooks on the front edge of the raised hot tub decking, just below the raised hot tub cover. This is very important for safety. Thank you.
No straight faces allowed, only smiling faces, lol......we want you to come back again and again.
You can play badminton, boules on the big lawn and pool and table tennis in the Barn.
No pets allowed, I'm sorry.
No smoking allowed anywhere on the property, including the garden.
No straight faces allowed, only smiling faces, lol......we want you to come back again and again.

Thanks so much,
Richard

The house and gardens are beautiful and the area is lovely and quiet but close to town. All the rooms were clean and homely, the beds and pillows were so comfy. We loved relaxing in the hot tub which was super clean. Nothing negative I can say about Fieldgate.

We stayed here for a wedding on the Easter weekend, from Saturday through to Monday, and Richard was a very good host in terms of communication, responding quickly at all times. The house was very much as described, the beds made up exactly as we requested and very clean. Location is quiet, which was fine for us, although the lack of a pub in easy walking distance was a shame, but once in Bath itself there is plenty to do, and a cab up the hill is not too much. Walking up and down the hill is OK, but does require some effort, so bear that in mind. We did have some issues getting in, as there was no key in the keysafe. This took a little over an hour to resolve, which was tough with kids after a 2 hour drive. That said, Richard was very apologetic and offered us a late checkout on the Monday which was great for those who could stay and make use of the place. There were a few niggles, nothing major, but annoying nonetheless. There was a lack of cups, glasses and plates - we were a group of 12, and you expect the place to have plenty of such things if it has 7 rooms, including larger glasses for beer etc, but it was very sparse. There was also no washing up stuff or soaps in the bathrooms – again we can go and get them, but for a 2 day stay it would be nice to have them provided. There were some other items that needed repair - but nothing that couldn't be coped with. Only 1 TV was tough with 12 of us – the second living room did not have one, so we could not all squeeze into the one room. Table tennis was good, but there were no balls for the pool table, and so we could not make use of that, which was also a shame. Hot tub was good, with clean water but once kids had splashed it got a bit low. Overall we had a good time, but the place could be improved by just making a few small improvements.

Fieldgate was ideally located for exploring bath and longleat, and the games room was enjoyed by young and old. Plenty of space but not as luxurious as pictures portray.

Well, of course we tried to show Fieldgate with as good pictures as we could, but naturally, we are still a home, rather than a prestigious hotel, so some things may not be perfect in real life. That being said, we appreciate these comments, and we'll do our best to become better and better. Thanks again. Richard

Richard is very charming but needs to check the property personally and not rely on the word of his cleaners when dealing with complaints. Also when challenged with complaints he should remember correspondence already sent to the complainant before responding with untruths. Shabby not at all worth the money. Typical student house if that is what you are happy to pay £1500 for 2 days then this is the house for you.

Richard was really happy to help and easy to communicate with which made planning our trip easy! The house is lovely and the garden and hot tub are a real treat - enclosed by tall trees which made it a really relaxing retreat. I would recxommend this house to families and large groups of friends!

Really lovely house with a great garden and outside area! The hot tub was amazing. The house was lovely and clean with a few slight issues but nothing terrible. Thanks so much for letting us stay! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting a trip to Bath. Not far from the city centre and regular buses can take you there if you don't fancy walking a big hill! Thanks again!
