Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Helen is a fabulous host and made us feel so welcome. She also cooks the best breakfast ever and nothing was to much trouble. The rooms we stayed in were so luxurious and inviting plus the beds were exceptionally comfortable too. We couldn’t fault a thing!

My friend and I stayed I The Tup shepherd hut. It was cosy, clean and quiet with the most beautiful views. There was lots of little added touches such as a gift basket. We got to see beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Helen was super helpful with how to get around and what was close. It was a 20 minute drive into Bath city centre. We got to see the horses and cows in the barn which added to our perfect weekend. Such a beautiful and relaxing weekend at Great Ashley farm.

We stayed in the Shepherds Huts at Great Ashely Farm last weekend and had the best weekend. Just the two of us, a chance to get away and relax which we did. Having stayed in the fantastic bed and breakfast rooms before, we know its a great location, quiet, charming and idyllic. The Shepherds Hut is beautifully decorated, warm, cosy, comfortable, surprisingly spacious with excellent storage. The under floor heating and oodles of hot water is a bonus. There was an amazing welcome box of goodies waiting for us when we arrived that included fresh farm eggs, fresh bread and butter, homemade jams, locally sourced cider. It was such a treat. The location is quiet and a real "hideaway from it all" destination. We caughted up on sleep and relaxed. I'd recommended it to everyone and excellent value for money.

Beautiful location, quiet and restful. Several great pubs nearby. Best experience we had on our 3 week trip. Very clean cozy room with upgraded bath, excellent cooked breakfast, and the opportunity to see an actual working family farm. During our stay, we were fortunate to see a baby lamb just born, only minutes old! Great area laced with walking trails and not far from Bath and other attractions. Helen and Alex are excellent hosts, and Helen is a wealth of information regarding things to see. Or just enjoy a glass of wine while sitting out in the lush green countryside! A true 5 star experience!

Peaceful location.Very comfy room, beautifully decorated and spotless clean, and with everything you could need. Helen is a wonderful host, and very knowledgeable and passionate about the local area, places to visit, restaurants, scenic walks etc. Breakfast was delicious consisting of lots of tasty local produce. Highly recommend and hope to return.

Great Ashley Farm is home away from home! You will be greeted by Helen, the hostess. Helen makes all the difference - with a fantastic English breakfast cooked to order every morning, and helpful hints on the sights to see in the area. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and extremely quiet. And being on a working farm allows for walks and animal encounters!

What a gem, this is an excellent B&B in a beautiful farmhouse setting. Helen is the perfect host. Like staying with a friend. If you need advice on where to visit she is happy to help. The breakfast is delicious - made with much local produce. The room is spotless and comfortable. The location ideally placed near to Bradford-on-Avon and in easy reach of Bath. I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

There were a few good points about this b&b, but they were overshadowed by one big, bad point. Namely the rooms are not serviced in any way during the stay. This meant: making our own bed, emptying the bins, changing the towels, cleaning tea cups, and making do without the bathroom and toilet being cleaned for 4 days. We certainly would not have booked to stay here, if we had known this beforehand. Oh, and one more thing, we were asked to come down early for breakfast on our second morning as the host had a trip out arranged.

Response from Helen Rawlings, Owner at Great Ashley Farm B&b And Shepherds Huts
Responded 11 Apr 2022
Thank you for you posting this review. As with most accommodation providers at the moment we are not entering guest rooms whilst they are occupied. We still have to be careful, we do not know who has or hasn't had vaccinations / boosters. Many guests have been asked in other hotels and B&Bs to strips the beds before they leave, we don't do that! We offer fresh towels every other day, we offer to replenish your tea trays if there is anything you need, ask. There are supplies of cups in the cupboard and bin bags simply swapped. I am sorry that your entire trip was overshadowed by your room not being serviced. It is quite clear from all of our other reviews that most guests are happy with the service provided. I know that you did enjoy The Seven Stars Pub, Lacock & Stourhead that I recommended. The very rare early 'trip out' was a visit to Paul Nichols racing stables an opportunity that we didn't want to miss, you were asked if you would be kind enough to come into breakfast 5 minutes earlier than your chosen time the morning before, which you agreed. It didn't go unnoticed that you chose to ignore my polite request. The hostility & rudeness that I received from the moment you arrived & throughout your stay was totally unnecessary and made me feel incredibly uncomfortable. We are sorry that you were underwhelmed by the service provided but we feel that we have gone over and beyond to offer a mutually safe service throughout the pandemic.

We had a wonderful weekend staying at Great Ashley Farm and visiting Bath. The room was stylish and comfortable, the welcome couldn’t have been warmer and the breakfast was excellent. Our hosts gave fabulous recommendations of places to eat and we enjoyed our walk across the fields to an authentic Thai meal (walking was our choice - driving also possible!)

We stayed at Great Ashley Farm from Monday 1st November until Friday 5th November and we had such a lovely time. The room was light and spacious with lots of thoughtful touches as was the bathroom, both rooms were spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linen and bedding,absolutely nothing to fault at all. For breakfast Heken took on board my many dietary requirements with no worries at all,we had a lovely breakfast everyday in her beautiful dinning room overlooking the garden. Helen was super helpful with places to go and how to get there,she was so friendly and welcoming, just the icing on the cake really. Helen and her B&B deserve 5 stars,I would highly recommend Great Ashley Farm and we will definitely be returning.
