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 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. Fresh coffee and home made biscuits were made available and we were shown to our room which had a lovely ks bed and modern large enough suite shower room. Everything...

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...

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.

We spent a week in the self-catering cottage. It's a very nice setting and the cottage was really well looked after. The hosts were very helpful and the kids loved playing in the garden or feeding the chickens every day. We'd definitely recommend it.

I can't think of anything that could be improved about my stay, the rooms were impeccably clean with attention to detail without being overbearing. Tim, my host, was super friendly and helpful. I hope to be back.
