This is our third visit to this fantastic B&B. Kate and James are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the s/c apartment which is beautifully furnished with a livingroom on the ground floor and bedroom/bathroom on the first floor. Breakfast is delivered and is the best we have had in the West Country. Loads of... More

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

We had a great space with a downstairs lounge and an upstairs bedroom and bathroom. the shower was great... More

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!

We were in the Superior double - which comprises a dining/lounge area on the ground floor and en-suite bedroom upstairs which has a king size and single bed, TV, and a lovely, high open beamed ceiling. Good quality bedding and nice fluffy towels provide a bit... More

Wow. A very warm welcome for us at Shave Farm b&b. We were greeted by Kate, and shown into a lovely cosy lounge, and offered tea or coffee in front of a warming log burner. Our en-suite room was the most lovely farmhouse style bedroom, with beautiful white sheets and pillows. Everything was spotlessly clean. The next morning we had... More

I have stayed for a night in Shave Farm B&B, and it was a great stay! The accomodation is situated close to the A303. The owners are very nice to communicatie with and are happy to explain more about their farm business (milkery). I stayed in the suite, a very spacious two story accomodation. The room looked quite new, clean... More
