One of a kind!
My husband and I were on an adventure along the countryside back to Bath and booked this little gem of a find. Whoooaa what an interesting place to get lost! loved loved loved this little bed and breakfast! There’s a restaurant, a bar, a beer garden, and honestly, we didn’t see it all. There is a whole farm and pigs and walking paths that I hope we get back to see another time. The food was well prepared, all organic and scratch made. More interestingly, they’re self reliant on their own livestock and farm produce which makes it sustainable and delicious. The staff were incredibly gracious, the rooms were comfortable, attractive and just perfect. I’d recommend this venue for groups especially because there are so many common areas and it seems perfect for event type activities. This place is one of a kind. I would stay again and would highly recommend.

This place is amazing in every single way! The village is picture postcard beautiful. The room was wonderful and the food and service was fantastic. I stay away a lot and I can be quite picky but this place will not let you down.

First after lockdown
First post lockdown overnight stay - felt really safe, well separated. Menu simplified a bit since last time - mainly classics burger, fish and chips etc - but high quality ingredients well cooked and looked after by friendly and helpful staff. Will go again
