“Stunning find”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We booked this at the last minute whilst attending a wedding in Frome.
It is a beautiful spot and the room we had in the stable block was spacious with a lovely large en suite.
Lovely small touches like homemade biscuits with the tea and coffee.
The staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.
Breakfast was fresh cooked with plenty of choice and served in their conservatory room which was beautifully set out.
All round this was a tremendous find and we would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

My fiancé and I stayed here on a short break for 3 nights. Sam was very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately, he was very helpful in recommending different places to visit and to eat in. I really cannot fault anything, our break was fantastic!

Stayed here 3 nights. Owners are very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and quite luxurious country chic and such a welcome change from those minimalist hotels. Breakfast is prob one of the best i've had in a long time. It all overlooks a lovely garden and the hills beyond..really quite idyllic

I stayed here with my young family and with a group of friends during July. The B&B is situated on a farm with lots of space for kids to run around. This is a really relaxing and calm B&B with six cottage style rooms in a courtyard and with two rooms attached to the main building a feeling of space is created. There is an onsite bbq which we used and the rooms are clean and well maintained with tea and coffee facilities. I didn't explore the surrounding area but the owner was very friendly and was extremely happy to help in any way he could.

This is the perfect country break for those wanting to escape the city with young kids or as a romantic break. I stayed in the room with the conservatory and there was a lot of space, easily enough for a family with 3 children. In summary it was the perfect weekend and I couldn't fault it. I look forward to visiting again.

This is a wonderful B&B. Best food I've had, including in 5 star hotels. Lovely clean, comfortable character-filled yet modern rooms. Quiet with landscaped grounds, beautiful views and very helpful and charming hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. We'll definitely be back!

We stayed over the May bank holiday weekend in room 6. The room was wonderful, with claw-foot bath and private conservatory.

Breakfast was great, with plenty of choice all cooked to a fantastic standard. We also booked some treatments which were well worth it. So nice not to have to go to a spa hotel to enjoy beauty treatments!

We would love to come back!!
