We were looking for an easy break in the country with our 3 month old and Withy Mills did not disappoint. We were booked in to Wharfingers Cottage with lovely underfloor heating and a log burning stove. The kitchen was very well equipped and, as did all the cottages, had super views across the rolling countryside. Had the weather been better, we would have loved to have sat outside and watch the sunset with a glass of wine but instead we made do with cosy nights in front of the fire.
The farm is in an excellent location. We had great days out at the races (Bath), shopping (Street outlet centre), waling in Eber (?) Gorge, exploring farm shops and walks. We also went to Longleat which was brilliant and again, just 30 minutes away. Debbie and Tom gave us a real insight into the runnings of the dairy farm and I would highly recommend asking for a little tour.
Top tip - if going with a baby, take some nice rugs for baby to lie on. The heated flagstone flooring is lovely but a little hard for small people.
Just be aware that the track leading to the farm really is quite bumpy so be careful unless youre in a 4x4!
