My husband and I stayed here for our two-year wedding anniversary, and it was just perfect. A quick 15 min drive into Bath for the spa, shops and restaurants, while nestled in quaint little Box itself. The host was lovely and communicative, even leaving us a little anniversary card. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old School Rooms. The property was perfect for our party of 10 enjoying a low-key hen weekend close to Bath. The location was ideal – Box was close enough to travel on the bus into Bath to enjoy a scavenger hunt and trip to the Thermae Spa, yet offering a quiet and quaint village experience. We enjoyed a takeaway from the lovely Indian restaurant just down the road thanks to tips from the host. Although we did not meet the hosts (allowing us privacy) they offered tips and detailed instructions before we arrived, including how to check-in, tips on public transport, restaurants and shops close by as well as parking and how to find the property easily. There is parking for two/three cars on the drive but we had a further three cars and had no problem finding street parking close to the property. The large living area was perfect for getting together to play games and enjoy food and drink. I would return to The Old School Rooms and really recommend the property for a weekend with friends or a family getaway. A picturesque location and comfortable stay!
The New School Rooms is a fab property, we went with 10, 4 adults and 6 children. The big dining/living room is a stunning room (the whole building is listed). The kids loved the pool table, and the dining table was a great size comfortably seating us all. I also loved the fact that there were big pans and loads of cutlery and crockery for a big group.
The facilities in the house were great, and any problems we had the owner was quick to deal with. The pool is unheated and wet suits definitely meant that the kids all got a lot more time in the water than they would have had otherwise. It's on the bus route to Bath, and a great location to explore the area from.
