Stayed with my partner in the Old Dairy 19th - 21st October 2012 as a 'getaway' for our birthdays.
We wanted somewhere for us to use as a base while visiting Bath, but wanted something a bit more remote and relaxed compared with a hotel - this was the place!
We arrived, having got slightly lost, after having had and early meal in Bath (Sotto Sotto - excellent Italian). Provisions provided in the cottage for breakfast are high quality and mainly locally produced and are a nice touch. Accommodation is clean and good quality, with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom is well equipped to with towels and quality products provided.
We went for a run to find one of the local pubs that does food, the Hunters Rest (1.1 miles) and the views were fantastic. We later ate at the pub which was pretty good with large portions, and decent beer.
Getting into Bath was easy, and we opted to use the Park & Ride which is a good service.
Having spent a day walking around Bath and visiting the sites, we returned to the cottage and made use of the hot tub and sauna - fantastic! Again, top quality and better than most 4* plus hotels that I have stayed in. Both were right opposite the cottage and we were the only using the facilities so had them to ourselves.
We didn't meet the owner until we were about to leave - this was not inattention, just we hadn't needed to seek help with anything as all was spot on. We had a nice chat and purchased some of the lovely apple juice and preserves produced at the farm.
All in all a very relaxing stay in a great location.
