The hosts bring the B&B to life and along with the fantastic garden and lovely room we both had a wonderful night. The room was very clean and the bed was nicely made. The en-suite was also spotless. Breakfast was delicious. We both started with a fruit salad and proceeded with scrambled eggs which came from the chickens in the... More

My wife found this place when we were planning a 3-day trip to visit Bath and its surroundings for the first time. The reviews we read online gave a very glowing account of the place...and our own stay confirmed that staying at School Cottage is indeed a delightful experience. Firstly - the host. Tim was very friendly and accommodating. A... More

We've just returned from a 3 night stay. Tim was an excellent host with tea and coffee on arrival for us, and plenty of local information. We stayed in the king size em suite room, it was perfect, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed with a tray of tea and coffee. Delicious breakfast with everything you could ask for cooked to perfection.... More

We were greeted by Tim who is so friendly and knowledgeable about the area and settled right in to our beautiful room with an en suite that was truly pristine (cleanliness is taken seriously here). We had a very comfortable night's sleep and felt rested the next day, enjoyed a delicious breakfast (as many locally sourced ingredients as possible) in... More

Just stayed here for a weekend break and was absolutely delighted with the choice. when we turned up we were greeted by Tim and immediately offered a tea or coffee which was a great way to settle in after a long journey. We had the bedroom at the back with the King size bed, the room was immaculately clean and... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in February and we both agree it's by far the best place we've ever stayed in. Tim was a wonderful host, always friendly and helpful, and the B & B was absolutely spotless, with everything you could possibly want for a perfect stay. Breakfast was delicious, with locally sourced produce and a... More

We've lost count of how many times we've been here because it simply is that good - an outstanding B&B with stunning rooms, fantastic breakfasts and ideally located for Bath and surrounding areas. We will no doubt be back again later in the year!

What a remarkable find this B&B was. Tim was a delightful host and the rooms were modern and very comfortable. The property is beautiful and features gorgeous gardens, fruit trees, goats and chickens. We thought the breakfast offerings were fantastic. Made with freshly laid eggs from the aforementioned chickens. One morning a member of our party asked for a fruit... More

Highly recommend this B&B. We stayed here for two nights at the end of November and thoroughly enjoyed it. Tim is an excellent host. He remembered the occasion we were celebrating, was careful not so spoil any surprise, and even lit us a candle. The B&B is easy to find and only a short drive away from Bath and some... More
