What a charming, typically Cotswold village, (Norton St Philip), and, right in the middle, a gem of a bed and breakfast hotel! With great ambiance, welcoming owners, (Stephanie and Giles), and a great location, what better way to relax and explore all that this area has to offer. Away from the tourist bustle of Bath itself, but close enough to... More

Arrived here whilst on a road trip to Longleat with my six year old daughter.. As I was staying in different hotels each night, I wanted to incorporate a couple of period character properties.. Although the village looks lovely and is dominated by the historic George Inn, it is very very busy with traffic .. The plaine is located right... More

I do not reccomend the Plaine at all. Noisy road, unconfortable old beds, slow at breakfast (and not everything warm). Travelling with friends, we spent one night at the Plaine, hoping to enjoy our stay out of the city. So we booked a triple room for one night. The first disappointment came when we discovered the B&B is on the... More

Cannot recommend this B&B highly enough, great location in a beautiful small village surrounded by traditional historic village pubs. Stephanie made us feel very welcome from the start, funny and kind yet appreciated our space. Breakfast was great and no issues with parking. We were attending a wedding at Wick Farm which was a 2 minute drive. Very happy guests... More

We enjoyed staying at the Plaine. The hosts are terrific and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Once you find it, it's easy to park. The pub with the longest running liquor license is across the street and has delicious food. The breakfast in the morning is well worth it. We spent a day at Stonehenge... More

We wanted to stay in a small country town outside bath, and we stumble upon The Plaine in Norton st Phillip. It was extacty what we were after. Generally a sleepy little village, with two great pubs. Steph and Giles were very hospitable, welcoming and helpful during our stay. After staying in hostels previous to our stay at the Plaine... More

An excellent location for an excellent B&B. Stephanie was fantastic, particularly as we arrived very late having cycled 100 miles that day. Very clean with a fabulous breakfast. if you want dinner at either pub make sure you get there befor 9pm...we didn't ;(

I stayed at the Plaine with a large bridal party. We were very warmly welcomed and were given free run of the place to get ready for the wedding, as we were the only people staying there. Given how comfortable we were made to feel, it's difficult to criticise, but I feel there are a few areas for improvement to... More

After being let down by another property in the area at short notice, we were very lucky indeed to stumble across The Plaine! Stephanie and Giles were really helpful throughout and let us make use of the entire B and B for the weekend, including the kitchen and communal areas, for my hen do. The whole place was clean, tidy... More
