Castle Combe, Cotswolds, England
The Stables Cottage in the grounds of Fosse Farmhouse was converted from a former eighteenth century horse stables which was part of the famous Badminton Estate built in 1750 by the Duke of Beaufort. On the ground floor the original stone cobbles hay racks and beamed oak ceiling have all been retained. In the summer months guests can enjoy delicious Cream Teas served in the garden from the neighbouring Farmhouse.

There is plenty to do in the area for families and a large shared garden of half an acre for the children to enjoy. Opposite the property is a championship golf course that our guests can join as temporary members - subject to handicap and ground fees payable. Please enquire on booking.

The picturesque village of Castle Combe is a short walk across the valley and the ancient Roman Fosse Way - the oldest Roman Road in England...

The stables at fosse farmhouse is a comfortable, if pricey, place to stay. Each bedroom has shower and toilet ensuite, the kitchen is well equipped and the living room has sofas and a large dining table.
Dogs can stay too, they must sleep downstairs and it will cost you an additional £10 per night, per dog (very expensive I felt for a pet or three simply being in the house, it was an additional £90 for our three for a three night stay!)
The main downside of the property is the lack of its own garden. The outdoor space is accessed from the living room and is shared with the main house, the b&b and members of the public who can eat cream-teas there between 11am and 5pm. This was a bit of a disappointment for us as we had hoped to have an extended family lunch in 'our' garden as a birthday celebration- we ate out so the situation was resolved but nonetheless it was a shame.
The details of the house also suggest you have access to a barbecue; on arrival we realised the...

Management response:

I first began Fosse Farmhouse B&B 30 years ago and since then I have converted three former farm buildings in the grounds into self catering Cottages - so what began as a hobby has grown into a successful business. I am absolutely delighted to have been able to independently provide accommodation in a such a beautiful part of the Cotswolds...
