We have just returned from a 4 night stay in School Cottages B&B. We found the perfect mixture of quiet and peaceful space in the countryside, surrounded by beautiful gardens and delightful animals, coupled with lots to do for days out in Bath and Wells. Tim was helpful, friendly and paid great attention to every detail during our stay. The... More

My wife, son and I have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at the self-catering cottage attached to the B&B. We wanted somewhere close enough to Bath but far enough out of the city centre for us to enjoy some 'space'. We certainly found that! The cottage is ideally situated 10-15 minutes drive away from Bath and is... More

My wife stayed here for a week to attend a nearby animal therapy course and I joined her for only one night, at the end of my business trip in NY. The place is very charming and easy to find! Tim was very friendly and even joined us for a drink at the local pub the evening I arrived. I... More

My family stayed at School Cottages last weekend. We hired the whole of the B & B and cottage for our sons wedding at Priston Mill. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim to provide, amend or go that extra mile for. The house is very comfortable and garden are a delight and the breakfast certainly prepared us for a... More

Some things in life are a must and this is one of them. Great for a visit to Bath with brilliant access via the nearby park and ride. The service and welcome is impossible to beat and the breakfast experience will live in your memory. The Pygmy goats are so cute and the garden is beautiful. This is the best... More

A little piece of English paradise. This is a B&B that goes that little bit extra...I think it's the attention to detail that does it for me. The 5* service but retaining that personal touch. From the moment we arrived we were impressed. We were welcomed with a pot of tea in front of the roaring log fire in the... More

We stayed here for a single night recently and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The place was spotless and Tim was really accommodating. He provided us with a list and map of local places to eat and really made us feel at home. The beds were wonderfully comfortable as were the rooms. The highlights of the stay were the pygmy... More

Just returned from our 6th stay at School Cottages and we love it just as much as ever. We visit twice a year for a relaxing weekend away in what now feels like our second home. We love the location in the pretty countryside just on the edge of Bath, only a 10 minute drive to the Park and Ride... More

The place itself is faultless. Clean and warm rooms (we are a family of four and took two double rooms), helpful owners, and an excellent breakfast with a wide choice. It's taken my three months to get around to writing this review but I can still clearly remember the breakfast! Gardens are nice and my kids enjoyed going to see... More
