Passford House is an exceptional modern house, constructed to a high specification, built by the present owners and completed in August 2006. Kingsdown is a small hamlet, situated to the east of Bath, nestling in the hillside above the Box Valley (Box Tunnel -- Isambard Brunel) with breathtaking views both toward and around Bath. The proprietors, David and Margaret, opened the doors of their home to paying guests in October 2008. It is their intention to deliver a standard of excellence ; so frequently advertised and yet so rarely found.Everything about the house is large and each bedroom is presented in immaculate condition. The decor, the furnishings and the linen ooze quality, ensuring a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. The bathrooms are lovely with plenty of hot water and soft towels. The twenty foot square kitchen, which leads into the gabled conservatory, includes a kitchen table which is laid for breakfast when there are only two or three guests at home ; in busier times the formal dining room is laid up and our guests enjoy their breakfast in the company of other guests. However, should you prefer to dine alone, just say so!! n.b. David prepares the breakfast -- it's very very good. Passford House is ideally situated to enjoy the magnificent City of Bath, with all that it embraces and has on offer. Other places, such as Bradford on Avon, The National trust village of Lacock ( did you watch the B.B.C. production of Cranford - most of the village and street scenes were filmed here); and of course Castle Combe are within easy reach. For the super fit' --a fast trot down the hill to Bathford, a gallop along the river bank, cross over to the canal towpath and you soon emerge in Bath ,close to The Recreation Ground -- the home of Bath Rugby; or you can walk down the hill and catch one of the frequent buses into the city centre -There are many renowned and expensive eateries in and around Bath for that special occasion. Likewise there are many local hostelries that offer fine fayre at reasonable prices; such as The Crown at Bathford; The Swan at Kingsdown,The Longs Arms at South Wraxall and The Bear at Box, to name just a a few.
