We have stayed here a few times and wouldn't stay anywhere else. We arrive to a warm welcome from Tim. A real fire burning in the grate and within minutes Tim makes tea and biscuits offers to take it up to the room or in frount of the fire. As always the room is imaculte and every need is catered...

We were booked into School Cottages for four nights starting last night. On our arrival Tim greeted us with tea and biscuits and chatted away to us like we were old friends. My daughter, who has recently moved to Bath, wanted to visit and so he provided extra of everything. This morning we awoke to find my husband had come... More

We stayed at the School Cottages cottage for several days on July 2015. Two adults and two children. Very nice place in quiet village. The cottage is very well equipped with all we needed for out stay. Just in front of the cottage there is a lovely garden with a big lawn with some places to sit and relax or... More

Were greeted by the wonderful Tim who immediately showed us around the small but brilliantly appointed and clean 2br apartment. Wonderful beds, pillows and linen. Supplies to set us up for a couple of days were most appreciated. A short drive to the Newbridge park and ride is best to see Bath (Odd Down is closer to the cottage but... More

We recently stayed for three nights at this B&B. Our accommodation was lovely, well appointed, clean and very comfortable. The tea and coffee making tray was always well stocked and included bottles of water. There was an excellent choice at breakfast and everything was well cooked by our host Tim. All in all we would thoroughly recommend this B&B and... More

This very quaint bed and breakfast is a hidden gem in Bath's glorious crown. The room, bathroom and lounge area is spotless, tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard. In fact it is the most comfortable b & b bed I have ever slept in! The staff are professional and down to earth, so they know how to make... More

We stayed 4 nights at School Cottages and can only endorse what others have said. It really was excellent and proved an ideal base for a visit to Bath, being handily placed for the park and ride, and very convenient for many locations within easy travelling distance. We particularly enjoyed the Haynes Motor Museum near Yeovil, and the city of... More

Without doubt this will be our first port of call when staying within the Bath area. We used the Self Catering Cottage and traveled as a family of 5, 2 adults, 4 year old, 2 year old and 6 months. The cottage itself is beautiful and set in a wonderful garden, which at the bottom has its own mini farm,... More

This was our second visit and it was the same delightful experience as the first time. To call School cottages a B&B just does not do it justice. There is a welcome not only from Tim, but throughout the whole cottage. When we visit to the area again, we will be staying at School Cottages once again.
