“Amazing B&B "dog friendly" close to Bristol Airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We booked this B&B for a night before travelling to Turkey at 7.30 the following morning. We were 3 adults, 2 children and a small dog! We booked the family room and a single room and paid a small additional charge for bringing the dog. I contacted the B&B prior to booking to check whether we could have breakfast that early in the morning and the room arrangements as we didn't want my mum to be staying too far from the family room. They replied quickly and said breakfast was self service and available at any time.

We arrived later than expected at 9pm and it was starting to get a little dark, but the directions to the property were good and it is very close to the main road, but appears quite rural in its outlook. We were easily able to park and were greeted by 2 Labradors who were very keen to meet our dog and wanted me to throw the rather moist tennis ball, being a doggy person, I happily obliged!

We were greeted at the door very warmly and told that although we had booked a single room, she had put mum into the double room next to ours so she was nearer to us. The rooms were lovely!!! The family suite consisted of a separate bathroom with a bath and very large shower over; a king-sized bed in a room and there was a small staircase leading up to the attic where there were 3 single beds.. it was gorgeous, the children (and the dog) loved it. The whole area was separated from the other rooms by a large door so they were free to walk around our whole suite without worry. Mums room was a small but adequate double with ensuite shower room.

There were tea and coffee making facilities in each room, although our kettle was missing, lovely towels and the bed linen was lovely. The beds were very comfortable too.

We were shown the breakfast facilities ready for the morning: there is a very large kitchen containing toast making section with lovely granary or white bread; hot drink making facilities and a fridge with yoghurts, fresh fruit, juices and milk/butter, in the dining room there was a large array of cereals and jams, marmalades, chocolate spreads, peanut butter, marmite (anything you could want to put on a piece of toast!).

They do serve drinks so we sat on the very large patio and had a drink before bed, while our dog played with the labradors in the very large garden!

The rooms were very nice and we were pleased with the stay and the breakfast - Self service was ideal for our needs.

The only negatives were:
It was in a semi-rural location and the farmers nearby had obviously sprayed the fields recently, the smell was a little horrid, but not a problem if, like us, you are used to being in the country!
They had recently cut the large lawns, but the grass hadn't been collected, so we were walking everywhere with clumps of cut grass on our shoes - again not too much of a problem, but we walked around without shoes to avoid messing up the carpets!

We would happily return if we needed accommodation in the area and will be recommending to all our friends that need to stay before flying from Bristol.

Room Tip: Family suite is superb if you have children, the attic room has a low ceiling height but is great fo...

Couldn't believe what we got at this price. It's beautiful both inside and out. It's historic decoration feels both cosy and luxurious. It's within a short driving distance of Bristol but you feel as if you're in the heart of the countryside. There are spectacular views.

A beautiful place for a short quiet break. Very clean. A warm and friendly welcome by staff and relaxed and fairly informal breakfast style with plenty of choice of food. The room we stayed in room 2 was tiny but to me it just adds to the cottage charm. Lovely garden and patio to sit and relax.

We stayed here for a night when we visited Longleat.

We had a family room with an enormous Super King sized bed. Best night's sleep I've ever had away from home. Large tv to keep the children occupied too. Reasonable wifi access and its free so can't complain.

The resident dogs Buster and Shadow gave us a lovely welcome. Don't worry if you're not a dog person though. They are very well trained, so they don't jump up or come inside and are great with children. My children are not usually particularly keen on dogs, but they fell in love and have demanded that we got back and visit so they can see their 4 legged friends.

Breakfast is a help yourself, buffet style. I'm not really a breakfast person but there seemed to be plenty of ceral, toast, porridge, juice, fruit etc to keep people happy.

The garden is absolutely beautiful, a lovely unexpected bonus. After we went out for a meal, we came back and wandered around the garden for the evening (with the dogs!) Would recommend to anybody. Also about 5 minutes from Bristol airport, but you would never know it. There is no traffic or noise.

We booked a family room for 5. We received a warm welcome from the manager. We had a bedroom for us, one for the 3 girls and a bathroom with a roll top bath. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated, they were clean and very homely. The bathroom was very clean and the towels were big and soft. The setting was idyllic and very peaceful. We would definitely come back again if over this way. The only thing which lets it down slightly is the breakfast. The kitchen is big and well presented, we knew breakfast was help yourself and basic. However, the bread was supermarket pre-sliced, jams were Sainsbury's value as was orange juice. We just thought fresh bread and maybe local jam would have been a nicer touch. This shouldn't stop people from coming though because it really is a delightful place to stay.

Loved this place. Lovely old thatched farmhouse cleverly converted into a comfortable B&B. The owners have retained all the old features of the place but added some key comfort factors; plush furnishings, lots of hot water, stylish decoration, comfy beds. Met with a warm and friendly welcome plus a great suggestion for a local pub dinner. Only 5mins from the airport so ideal location and off the flight path so managed an unexpected uninterrupted night's sleep. We left very early so didn't utilise the self serve continental breakfast facilities but they looked adequate though I can understand others commenting on the lack of a good English Breakfast if you weren't rushing off and wanted a more leisurely breakfast experience. But that's not a big enough reason not to recommend this delightful place and we'll be back next time we fly from Bristol.

We were along for a wedding in the local village and booked in here for a couple of nights.The overall feel is great, it's like dropping over at a friends house in the country.

I would def stay here again if in the local area.

On the plus side
Great manager - super friendly, helpful and warm an asset to the owners
Very clean - no dust anywhere and the bathrooms very clean
Two beautiful doggies live her - they are friendly and like to play ball
small rooms was still comfortable and bed was nice
Great shower in our on-suite - nice and warm and good pressure
Location and building very country and relaxing
Beer and drinks can be ordered during the day
You can keep things in the fridge in the kitchen

Opportunities
Breakfast is non-starter. Boil some eggs and do a true Continental breakfast with hams
The coffee wasn't great needed to be a little bit stronger

Room Tip: Ask the manager for rooms suggestions - do you want to face the sunrise or be on the back. Are you l...
