Seymours Court
Ranked #4 of 4 Beckington B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Seymour Court is a lovely old historic house on a working farm in a beautiful location. We booked both rooms which were very comfortable and private. Jane was welcoming and relaxed. We all felt quite at home. The local pub is just a stroll down the lane serving great pub food. We woke to the dawn chorus, hot showers and a very hearty full breakfast.

I really loved this place. Sleeping in a fifteenth century country house is a dream for most Americans, if not most Brits, I am sure. Add to this a genuine and warm welcome from Jane, the lady of the house - she met me at the gate and showed me all round the house upon arrival - and excellent food for breakfast (hens' eggs from the farm, Jane's own jams and marmalade, meat from the neighbouring farm), and I would recommend Seymours Court wholeheartedly.

At £70 a night, it represents good value. I booked via the Visit Bath website which (I discovered later) retains a 10 percent deposit. I'll book direct with Jane next time and would suggest otehr guests do too, as this is a family business.

The house itself is the star. I lay there in the comfortable and enormous bed, snuggled under the duvet, and looked up: the huge wooden beams in the ceiling must have been made from massive trees back in the fifteenth century - so when were those trees planted..?

The tranqulity of Seymours Court allows the mind to wander like this (!) and even though this is a working farm, there is very little - if any - noise at all (other than the chirping birds at dawn).

Jane keeps the room and bathroom (and the whole house) spotlessly clean and well stocked with amenties (shower gel, shampoo, handwash, hand cream all in generous supply): I especially enjoyed having fresh milk rather than UHT for my morning brew.

Spot the Westbury White Horse from the bathroom window (it is far away but you can see it!) and enjoy the experience of being in such an ancient home.

There is ample parking and it is easy to find. Beckington offers some beautiful old buildings and two pubs (The Foresters Arms serves excellent fresh food in abundant portions along with local ales - no muzak and no fruit machines - and is about 15 minutes gentle stroll along the lane), as well as easy access to the A36 road from Bath to Southampton.

Looking for somewhere to hunker down and chill out or to cuddle up and escape the world? I'd suggest Seymours Court is worth considering.

And if you really, really can't do without it, there is free Wifi and excellent mobile phone reception.

We didn't stay here ourselves but we had our wedding here so guests stayed and they all raved about their time here. Jane was brilliant at looking after us and all of our guests. The house was the perfect backdrop for all of our photos and the location was perfect - hidden away from the main road but within perfect distance to Bath, Frome etc. Would highly recommend!

Seymours Court is undeniably one of the most beautiful, quaint and romantic places I have ever stayed... We were on our honeymoon and must say this was truly the highlight of our European trip...
The 'house' - manor, I suppose is a better term, is breathtaking - you have to pinch yourself when you drive up to it because its beauty and size will astound you. Jane, the host, greeted us with a warm and friendly smile - showed us around the house and property and even brought us homemade short bread cookies and milk to help us settle in.
We walked, at dusk, to a restaurant, called the Wolfpack Inn (maybe?) and it was about a 20 min walk. Incredible food and cozy and wonderful.
If you are ever in Bath, England and want to escape to a storybook place, choose Beckington, and choose Seymours Court!

You will not be disappointed.

Seymours Court is a lovely farm house, outside the village but easy to find and to get to and from. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished. The private bathroom was next door. Jane was the perfect hostess - helpful and efficient but didn't impose on us. Our delicious breakfast used local products - some from the farm itself. Places to eat dinner are 10-15 minutes drive.
