What a fantastic place! Near to the A303 but far enough away to feel in the country. Stayed in the B & B not the SC cottage Lovely comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again. Very good value for money

I can't fault Shave Farm in any way! Beautiful location, easy booking process, warm and friendly owners, wifi, great breakfast and easy parking. Kate was a wonderful host, offering us tea and coffee on arrival. There's also a lovely guest lounge to relax with views across the farm grounds. Book now, you won't regret it!
