Friendly and helpful owners. Lovely house, great rooms with good furnishing and fittings. Gardens were amazing with chickens, Pygmy goats and fish ponds, frogs and cats. Oh yes the food was magnificent, fresh eggs, homemade jams and marmalade to die for. The whole experience made our trip something really special. The local knowledge they shared was really useful providing us... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. Before we'd even arrived Tim had given us lots of info about the area, where to go for dinner and Sunday roast, getting around etc which was a big help. The setting is beautiful and it's easy to get to. There's a small garden to explore with Pygmy goats... More

School cottages has to be one of the best bed and breakfasts I have stayed in. Nothing is to much trouble for Tim its lovely owner. He is there to welcome you when you arrive with a lovely smile and a helpful manner. It is a delight to stay here. Everything is spotlessly clean, the beds are very comfortable and... More

A friend and I visit both Bath, Wells and Bristol regularly and having experienced many B&B's in the area School Cottages always comes up trumps for us. Wether you decide to go for the delightful self catering cottage or opt for the luxury of having Tim cook breakfast or you, the welcome is the same. Spotless rooms throughout, scrummy breakfasts...

I must admit I'm not your typical reviewer as it takes something particularity special to go out of my way to write a review on something. However, every now and again you will come across something that little bit exceptional and that's what you'll find at The School Cottages. From the warm welcome, attention to detail, and generally helpful attitude... More

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.
