We stayed at School Cottages the night before a visit to Bath.
Our welcome was a warm one with tea, coffee and biscuits served in the sunny conservatory which overlooks the incredibly well tended, and verdant, gardens.
Our room was extremely well presented and it, together with the adjoining bathroom, was spotlessly clean with fresh looking decoration and soft furnishings and a large and comfortable bed. Tea, coffee, biscuits, a television and free Wi Fi are all provided; the login details for the latter are contained in the guest information folder. One slight surprise was that the central heating came on in the morning, not a criticism but unexpected; remember to turn the radiator off before retiring if you prefer your bedroom cool!
The gardens at School Cottages are well worth exploring, when we visited the flower and vegetable beds, the lawn and shrubs were all looking superb; worthy of the open garden event shortly to be held. As an added bonus there are, at the far end of the plot, pens with miniature goats rare breed hens to be seen; the latter providing eggs for the breakfast table.
And so on to breakfast which, after our very sound night, was again served in the conservatory. The menu offers a wide choice with something for everyone, including the above mentioned eggs in a variety of guises and some delicious home made jams and marmalade.
Our only criticism of this excellent establishment is that it does lie between two roads and in the late afternoon, and again during the morning rush, there is a degree of traffic noise. Certainly not enough to spoil the visit but we were aware of it.
Overall the experience was a very good one and I would not hesitate in reccomending School Cottages as a great place to stay.
