Stayed here again and definitely wouldn't stay anywhere else. From the moment we arrived we we're met by Tim who had tea and biscuits ready always makes me feel so welcome. Breakfast was brilliant and poached eggs by Nigel were perfect. Perfect hosts and everything spotless. Can't wait to come back

We stayed in the self-catering cottage for two nights and had a wonderful time. The cottage is cosy, warn, comfortable and very clean and was perfect for our family of four. Tim was very hospitable and welcomed us with Cake and homemade raspsberry jam that was delicious. Great base for exploring Bath which is 15mins by car and very close...

We stayed here while on holiday in England. We thought it want far out of bath so why not. We were not disappointed. Short drive to bath to see the sights and a great little location. Tim was fantastic, we stayed in the self catered cottage and it was beautiful. So glad we did. If you are going to bath...

Definitely a great B&B. Tim was a brilliant host as were the chickens and goats! Everywhere was spotless and the breakfast was great, sadly we could only stay for one night but looking forward to the next time.

Have just returned from a lovely 2 night break at school cottages with my husband and 1 year old son. We stayed in the self catering cottage and could not have asked for more! Tim was so helpful and greeted us as soon as we arrived, he showed us around the cottage and had thoughtfully put the stair gate up...

This was a great find and an excellent B&B. Great room and shower, great breakfast with a wide ranging menu, very friendly and it has a lovely lovely garden. We loved the chickens & goats too. This B&B is definately worth staying at.
