Absolutely delightful place to stay with lovely views from the bedroom windows. The house was clean and fresh with a big modern kitchen. Karen the hostess was very friendly and... More

Stayed with a group of friends for six nights in a converted eighteenth century stables self catered accommodation. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, clean and comfortable with well equipped kitchen. Host was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. However the property was initially difficult to find.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments.I really enjoyed meeting you all and helping to direct you to the best local Pubs. Fosse Farmhouse is rather difficult to find without a Sat Nav.You managed to find me without one - which was amazing! I really hope to see you again! More

I stayed for just one night with my friends. We first arrived at Bath Spa and took taxi to foss farmhouse (about 25 min). It was bit far for us, who don't have a car but it's worth the time and money. Staff were really friendly:) The scenery is really beautiful and rooms are sooo cute. I had good sleep....you... More

We stayed here for 2 nights (7 & 8 March) whilst attending a wedding at the nearby golf club. We stayed in the "pink room" which is featured on the website. This is a lovely room and is well decorated, making me feel as if I had been transported back to the time of Jane Austen! However my husband (who... More

I am so happy that you had a lovely stay here. The local pubs are a 20 minute walk from here however the taxi's are based in Chippenham so if you need to call one they will charge a return fee from their base which is expensive (it is a 12 mile round trip). I recommend that you bring a... More

We spent the Christmas day there and had lunch with friends. It was a day trip from London (less then 2 hours from central London). We arrived a little earlier and visited the beautiful small village close to the farmhouse (Castle Combe). We stayed there just for the day but we had the chance to visit the whole farmhouse and...

We stayed here for three nights from 24th to 27th to enjoy British Christmas. Fosse Farmhouse is located bit far from the station (takes 15-20min by taxi), but because of it atmosphere is amazing! Inside the house, each rooms are warm enough, decorated beautifully for Christmas, and of course very clean. Caron and two girls working there are very kind... More

Nothing of what we found matched anything that was advertised: Windy room, cheap carton new year tree, frozen bread in the fridge for breakfast. All managed superbly by mistress of Mis-hospitality. Her reply to our complaint: So sue me!

Christmas is a lovely time to visit Fosse Farmhouse as we always decorate the house and cottages in traditional style with trees and wreaths. Of course seasonal decoration is a personal taste and will not appeal to everyone but the majority of guests love it. Severe storms and strong winds of up to 70mph were gusting around on Boxing day... More

We stayed here for one night in late October 2013, arrived to a very warm reception from Caron, Our room was stunning, loved the antiques and the decorating.

Finding myself working late at short notice, I needed somewhere to stay - several big chain hotels were also in the area but were either further away or more expensive so I decided I would give Fosse Farm a call - what a good decision!
