Having decided on an overnight stay after a family day out at Longleat, we were very pleased to find such a wonderful place. Not always easy to find somewhere to accommodate our 3 children, but the set up here is perfect. We had a lovely welcome from Chris, who showed us to our rooms, a double for us and a... More

The place is hidden inside a tall gate. Once inside, you instantly feel its close connection to earth. The room which we stayed in (room 1) is small, but enough to accommodate our needs, and the breakfast is simple yet delicious. The only negative thing for me was the car noise outside (which my husband did not take notice at... More

My husband and I were on an anniversary trip exploring Britain. After a whirlwind week long trip around the country, arriving at Friary Dene was a relaxing end to our trip. Jules and Chris welcomed us into their home like family, they even invited me on their evening dog walk. They were both very sincere in their desire to meet... More

Well, looking at the reviews below we're certainly going against the grain... but we definitely felt like we had to go with our review. Jules and Chris instantly make you welcome - it was such an informal welcome and no forms to fill out or anything. The breakfast was lovely (with no additional costs for full english etc) and the...

Read the previous reviews with interest when we got back, here is our experience. Arrived Thursday night to a warm welcome from Jules. We stayed in room 1 which was cosy, comfortable and clean. Enjoyed 2 excellent breakfasts cooked by Chris on the mornings along with plenty of good friendly conversation. We really enjoyed our stay and have already recomended... More

We chose Friary Dene having read a mass of positive reviews and the photos convinced us. We couldn't have wished for a better time. Our bedroom was nicely furnished, very large and the bed extremely comfortable. The decor throughout the house is lovely and the feel of the place really relaxing - typified by the wonderfully friendly hosts, Jules &... More

We stayed at Friary Dene as part of a family group attending a wedding at a near by location . Their web site advertises "Fabulously comfy King Size Beds" That does lead you to believe that all the beds of a double nature would be big, this is clearly a point that needs to be addressesd. Clearly one of the... More

Thanks for your fabulously constructive comments. Our website states very clearly the exact spec and contents of each room. The room that was allocated you has a queen sized bed. (as stated on our website). The room next door that you moved into without our knowledge or permission has a super king sized bed. Poached eggs are on the menu,... More

Jules and Chris were the perfect hosts. The rooms were spotless and breakfast is not to be missed. A great base to explore the surrounding areas.
