School Cottages ranks among the best B&Bs I have ever stayed at! Clean, comfortable, relatively spacious rooms. Excellent en suite bathrooms. Tim was absolutely wonderful and made our stay care free. Breakfast was delicious. The gardens and small goat/chicken pen is lovely. £24 taxi ride into the centre of Bath. Could not have asked for a better place to stay!

We have just returned home from an overnight stay at School Cottages which was booked for our trip to Bath. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble.
