After a lot of searching for accommodation in the Bath area, we came across The Plaine. I am glad we stayed here, it was a great find! Perfect for our visit to Longleat & Bath city centre. We had room 3 on the ground floor which was tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, which perhaps eliminated the traffic noise... More

I booked a room here as a belated day & night away for my husbands bithday. We asked could we arrive early, even if just to drop our bags off, before we headed in to Bath for the afternoon/early evening. It was no problem at all. We headed back to the village in the evening, stopped at The George for... More

Visited the Plaine in august 2014 for one last couple getaway before the arrival of or first child. The b&b is set in the heart of a lovely village with a couple of great pubs, and was close to both bath and a couple of spa hotels which we also visited. Steph the owner was a bundle of energy and...

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
