“Value for comfort and customer service at its genuine best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2009

Staying here after a study week in Aberystwyth proved an excellent way to unwind ...!

Filling, excellent food; warm spacious rooms; masses of storage space (wardobes everywhere); excellent en-suite bathroom; helpful, interested and genuinely friendly service; TV, drink-making facilities, sink and power points in room; comfortable, kind beds; all in all, clean and unfussy. (There could be more bedside cabinets rather than tables; but this is a minor point as there's so much storage elsewhere, even in my smaller room.) Rooms are cleaned every day and are clutter-free.

Ross has won a "Welcome Host" award; it shows in her attitude and approach. Nothing is too much trouble it seems. And a Catering Award! Her goregous Full English Breakfast really is to live for (see photo)!

Decorating is in a country style, but I don't bother about flowers on walls or bed covers, as long as it's comfy. Manor Farm looks exactly like it does on the website or in the brochure. There's no sleight of hand. 'It does what it says on the tin'. Staying off-peak I paid just £30 per day, which is stupendous value for money.

The Living Room I did not use much, but the sofas are relaxing, there are games to play and flatscreen TV (as in every room). They have decorated the Dining Room also faithfully to the character of this 17th Century farmhouse. The B and B is on a main road from the M4 to Malmesbury - the A429 - but double-glazing throughout minimizes noise and the traffic dies down after 7 pm anyway.

As John and Ross Eavis say, it's a working farm - the cow farm is opposite the B and B (across the road) and free-range chickens are kept in the opposing direction, beyond the self-catering cottage. I found the aroma pleasant when I even noticed it - but it suited me, and farm stays are not going to be everyone's liking anyway.

As I said to John and Ross when I left, I'm going to recommend Manor Farm to everyone I meet! Absolutely fantastic! Best B and B I've stayed in ever!

Wonderful b&b on a working farm just off the M4, about 5 miles south of Malmesbury in the small village of Corston. Proprietor was extremely accommodating. We stayed in the cottage in the back, which was almost a complete house itself: washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove (hob), satellite TV in main room and the 2 bedrooms, and DVD player (with selection of DVD's). 1 Bedroom had double, 1 had 2 twins. Breakfast was traditional everyday and quick service. Other people we visited at breakfast who stayed there for work said it was the best B&B around, and they had stayed in others in the area.

It is a quick hop to Bath, Avebury, Bradford, Cotswolds from this location. Park and ride is available from Malmesbury if you so choose to travel there by train.

Arranging a room reservation was simple via email. I had to send a letter and very small deposit. Only inconvenience was they didn't take credit card, but a small inconvenience for such a nice place.

Pub (with drinks and food) is just a short walk down the road. But this is the place to go for quiet and relaxation. Oh, and since it's a working farm, the milk can't be any fresher than if you got it from the cow yourself!
