RIVER HOUSE
Welcome to River House in the hamlet of Friary, near Bath.
This historic estate is just outside Bath, in the South Cotswolds. It was once the site of a Carthusian Monastery (hence the name 'Friary') and is scheduled by Historic England as an Ancient Monument.
This private and peaceful riverside location is only accessible by a no-through road, yet it is close to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath and the thriving market towns of Frome and Bradford on Avon, as well as Longleat Safari Park, the Cathedral City of Wells and many National Trust properties.

COVID REGULATIONS: We have adopted the enhanced cleaning protocol.
During the 6-group rule in the UK, we are accepting bookings for smaller groups of 2 - 6 maximum, or family household units which are legally larger. PLEASE ASK FOR A QUOTATION BEFORE BOOKING. During this time we regret that large groups, unless legally compliant, and corporate events are not possible.

FOR LARGER GROUPS IN 2021 please note that prices currently reflect smaller groups. So please ASK FOR A QUOTATION for larger group bookings of 8 - 18.

SOLE OCCUPANCY: If you book part of River House, or The Coach House, then you have sole use of that property. We do not rent out parts of River House to different groups of guests, in order to preserve separation. This applies to NOVEMBER/DECEMBER/JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020. You are invited to enquire for further details and also for future dates from March 2021.

ACCOMMODATION:
River House Bath and The Coach House can be rented together, or separately. The Coach House is automatically included with River House for groups of 12+.
The Ground Floor only of River House is also available, for up to 4 guests, this comprises: 2 double bedrooms and shower room; kitchen/conservatory; living room/study. You will have sole occupancy of the whole house, although we ask you not to use the upper floor rooms.

Combined, River House Bath and The Coach House comprise over 5,000 square feet of accommodation with 2 spacious kitchens and large living rooms, including a conservatory dining room and a double-length living room, with log-burning fires at each end. This is a perfect arrangement for larger and mixed-age groups. Please check, before booking a group of 12 + that River House AND The Coach House both are available on your chosen dates.

All bedrooms can be arranged as super-king doubles or twins rooms, according to preference, and most are en suite.

FEATURES
We offer our guests a year-round serviced Hot Tub, extensive BBQ Terrace and riverside Sun Deck with sun-loungers, a variety of Garden Games and large Fire Pit.
Sky Sports and Wifi/Internet are available throughout.
Private fishing is available in season, with tuition by arrangement.
There is a scenic railway station in the local village, Freshford, which offers an hourly service to Bath Spa station in under 10 minutes. A traditional village pub, well-stocked community-run shop/cafe and a genuine Sicilian stone-fired pizza oven are all within walking distance.
Local supermarkets deliver and local minibus/taxis are available. There are also several very well-stocked local farm shops.

THE COACH HOUSE
Please note that when you reach 12 guests plus, The Coach House will be automatically included in your booking, but otherwise River House and The Coach House may be rented separately and are also available for groups who have to socially distance due to COVID rules.

BEDS
River House and The Coach House together have 13 'hotel-style' single beds, which can be arranged as 6 super-king beds and one single.
In addition, we have 3 excellent quality Jay-Z portable beds (1 double and 2 singles) with proper mattresses and 2 comfortable double sofa beds - all within bedrooms.
Both properties also have 2 cots for babies, a toddler bed and 100% cotton baby linen.

CARETAKER, CHEF AND HOUSEKEEPER
The Caretaker and Housekeeper are available to help guests at any time. Our Caretaker is also a qualified Chef who will be delighted to cater for your party (6 minimum). Please ask for our 'Friary Tuck' menu if you would like to eat 'at home' in River House.

REVIEW
Paolo Fresia, Social Impact Investor:
"We loved out stay at River House for our team offsite the past two years in December. The venue is conveniently located in an idyllic rural location not far from Bath Spa station, and easily reachable from Bristol and Heathrow airports. The rooms are very comfortable and there are plenty of communal areas to hold workshops into. The grounds are stunning and the rare breed animals very cute and entertaining. However, the best thing about the house is the warm welcome of the caretakers Richard and Penny, who also prepare the most delicious meals and have them served right when needed. We can’t recommend River House enough for your corporate retreat!"

ORNAMENTAL GARDENS
The enclosed gardens and terraces of River House extend to over 2 acres and are entirely for the use of residential guests. Private riverbank fishing (in season) extends to several hundred metres along the River Frome.
A large hot tub is for the sole use of River House guests, as well as 2 BBQ terraces, a large fire pit, croquet, badminton and clock golf. Coach House guests have access to the front gardens, orchard and vine-clad pergola.

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS
The property is accessed by a No-Through Road and there is very little traffic, other than vehicles visiting the property.
Several supermarkets will deliver and minibus/taxis provide regular pick-ups. The local village has a shop, cafe, pub and railway station, plus bus service to Bath Central, there is a short-cut footpath leading from the property directly to the village.

NOISE AND LIGHT RESTRICTIONS
River House is in an officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a policy of 'Tranquility and Dark Skies' to protect the special flora and fauna of this location.

LOCAL ACTIVITIES
There are a variety of local activities, including our own tailor-made programme of traditional rural skills and private fishing on site.
Other local activities include: clay pigeon shooting; horse riding; falconry; vineyard and brewery trips; beauty and spa treatments; and barges and bicycles for hire at nearby Dundas Aqueduct. We would be happy to send you a list of recommendations.
There is a small rare breeds farm in the surrounding 8 acres of parkland which includes Berkshire-cross pigs, Appleyard ducks and miniature Shetland ponies.

**CHILDREN
Children especially enjoy staying at River House, but please make sure that they are fully supervised in outside the grounds when near the farm animals or the river.**

HOT TUB/FIREPIT
Please note that if the two properties are rented SEPARATELY, we ask River House guests not to use the hot tub before 10am or after 4.30pm, also to socialise on the river terrace side of the property.

All use of the hot tub ceases at 7pm. Please do not use sun cream before entering the hot tub or use any form of glass in that area.

The fire pit provides a wonderful way of enjoying the skies at night as well as the sound of owls and other nocturnal creatures in this unique location.

AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY
We are in a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' which has a Cotswold Conservation area policy of 'Tranquility & Dark Skies', so we do ask guests to limit noise outside in the grounds to a conversational level and refrain from using external lighting at night, other than for access to buildings. No music may be played outside, other than by prior agreement, and should not be amplified.

OUTSIDE SERVICES
Please note that we have our own Chef, so do not usually allow the use of outside caterers.
For guests hiring or bringing in their own entertainment, this is allowed at the Owner/ Caretaker's discretion and we always ask for sight of the performer's public liability insurance documents, at least one week in advance of your arrival.
