We've just returned from our second stay at the self-catering cottage and would recommend it highly. The property was spotless, and the beautiful garden and animals made for a relaxing environment. Tim was very friendly, welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The cottage is ideally situated for sightseeing around the area and there are a good number of enjoyable walks... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015 for a break to visit Bath. The bedroom was absolutely spotless and we didn't expect the room to be serviced daily, something you would expect from a 5 star hotel not a B&B. The ensuite bathroom was immaculate with a fantastic shower and the luxury toiletries were a... More

This has become our home from home and we try and visit at least once a year (sometimes more!) for a weekend away with fantastic hospitality, great hosts and the best breakfasts ever! Eggs from the hens at the bottom of the beautifully... More

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
