This is a long-overdue review as I have stayed at School Cottages on several occasions. It's perfect for weddings at Priston Mill and for access to Bath and Wells. The accommodation is beautiful, both inside and out -there is a gorgeous garden where it is easy to relax after a day of sight-seeing. I am always impressed by the quality... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the self catered cottage in July. Tim was very helpful, the gardens and animals delightful. We were greeted with a delicious boxed cake, fresh eggs and were able to buy another half dozen! We squeezed in a 5th person at the last minute and although cosy was not a problem. Only downside was the... More

Stayed for the third time at School Cottages B&B. The place still feels really fresh and well kept. I think it's decorated every year and it shows. Breakfast delicious - fresh produce, homemade jam. Garden was looking lovely in the late spring. Chose to drive to Bath for dinner - about 15 minutes away so very easy if you have... More

From the warmth of the welcome to the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms through to the quality food served at breakfast you simply cannot go wrong booking in here. Excellent service; excellent setting; excellent all round.

Just wanted to write to say how lovely Tim was. I was searching for a cottage to stay before, during and after our wedding at Priston Mill in March, most importantly I needed somewhere to accommodate my bridal party before the wedding. From the pictures a feel in love with the cottage and contacted Tim via email to book. Tim... More

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
