Like a previous reviewer I came across The Place to Stay via Groupon but because I wanted to stay a specific date, didn't want to take the chance that with the offer. However, I have no complaints about paying the full price as this is an excellent b&b. The room my husband and I had was cosy and clean with... More

I stumbled across this place on groupon. They had a fabulous deal on which included an afternoon tea for 2, 1 nights stay and breakfast for just £59! Before booking I contacted the place to stay to discuss my dietary requirements as I am a coeliac. They assured me that they were happy accommodate my 'needs' for no extra charge!... More

We visited this B&B as a family, taking several of the rooms for the weekend, and we could not have been happier. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms large with fantastic showers, and the breakfasts hearty and very well cooked! Although only breakfast is provided, there are two patios (one covered); with outdoor furniture and a BBQ available for... More

We have stayed in many B&B's and this was by far the only one we have had a complaint about. The setting is beautiful but our room in the converted barn had no windows and only a skylight. It was claustrophobic. Also our breakfast was so greasy and undercooked that we couldn't eat it. This location is advertised as luxury... More

We stayed here as a couple for 2 nights while visiting Longleat Safari Park near by. We were not left disappointed! All the staff were more than welcoming. From Hilary who checked us in, Sarah who done our pamper package to Sam who couldn't do enough for us! From the minute we arrived to the minute we checked out we... More

As we come from abroad we wanted to find somewhere where we could meet up with our family of different ages and find a 'home from home' atmosphere - so difficult to find but we did find it at Knoll Hill Farm. We booked three double rooms in the barns, all our rooms were of a high standard (and we... More

The owner, Sam, couldn't be more helpful - informative & concerned for our welfare - he spent time booking us a table for food in the evening when he learned the local pub was fully booked. Rooms nice - all mod cons. Wi-Fi not consistently strong throughout the venue, but we were all able to get on near reception. Great... More

Myself and my partner ventured to Frome on a two day visit to Longleat Safari Park, The place to stay was conveniently situated within a few miles of our destination. Upon our arrival, we saw a stunning little Emmerdale-esque building which would become our home for the next two nights, we received a warm welcome by a lovely lady who... More

I'm very torn about writing a good review, as Knoll Hill Farm feels like somewhere I would like to keep to myself. However, it is so good that would be unfair.
