I stayed here for 4 nights last week and I have to say that it's one of the nicest guest-houses I've stayed in.
There was a small mix up with the room, but Fraser welcomed us in to the house, sat us in the living room, made us a nice cup of coffee, and put the tv on for us while our room was made ready.
Fraser and Lynn are wonderful, kind people and make you feel very welcome and part of the family.
The breakfast's are lovely and there is a big choice of food. You get a tick-list at the start of your stay so they can have things ready for you in the morning. This can be changed or added to whenever you would like. There is also cereals and freshly baked bread available every morning.
I will point out that breakfast time does require you to be an early bird (which I am not ;)) as it is served between 7:30 - 8:30 each morning.
The breakfast room has a lovely view either of the front garden or the side garden - which are beautiful. I loved watching the chickens running round every morning.

We stayed in the Wiltshire Room, the twin room, which was very spacious and had the comfiest beds! There is also a nice en-suite bathroom with a whirlpool bath. The view from our room was of the front garden and fields and forests.

The farm is located at the edge of a main road and is pretty difficult to find in the dark, especially if you're not a local. Look out for the big black dog with the googly eyes at the side of the road! And you can park at the front of the house - there's quite a lot of space.

There's a really nice bridal path running along side the B&B. We didn't go as far as the woodlands, but the path does carry on. Apparently there is a lot of wildlife in the area, but I think we were a bit early and just got to see the cows and sheep.

The guest house is ideally located for local villages and tourist attractions - it took us around 15mins to drive to Longleat. We also left the car at Warminster train station and got the train in to Bath for the day. After 9:30 the car park is £1.90 for the whole day, until midnight. And the off-peak return to Bath was £10.10 and takes about 30mins. It was a nice, non-stressful way of getting to Bath.

Fraser and Lynn will help you out with any day trip planning and they're always happy to give advice. There's also a really good guidebook in each room with loads of information for local tourist stuff.

This really is a lovely guest-house set in a beautiful part of the country. Just remember you need to be an early-riser and keep an eye out for the dog with the googly eyes!

Thank you for looking after us so well :)

Just had a 4 night midweek stay with my Daughter and we received a lovely warm welcome. Our room wasn't ready so we were shown into the living room and made a coffee and watched TV :).
We stayed in the twin room which was lovely and quite big, en-suite is nice but the loo can be noisy due to being a Saniflo system.
Frazer and Lynn are wonderful friendly people always ready for a little chat while serving the very filling breakfast and the freshly baked bread is an added bonus.
The Chickens rummaging round are a delight to watch.
We arrived as it was going dark and the farm was a bit difficult to find, we drove past a few times!!
Look out for the dog shaped sign,which is black, it reflects the light in it's eyes. A quick turn off right in front of the front garden and park by the hedges.
A wonderful stay and definitely a place to revisit.

We stayed two nights at Black Dog Farm and we were impressed with the friendly greeting we received and given a room overlooking garden with many different types of birds feeding. It was a delightful room and met all our needs.The quality of the cooked breakfast was excellent.We certainly would recommend this place to our friends.

Black Dog Farm is so easy to get to yet so buried in the depths of wonderful countryside.
After a fine evening meal and good ale at the nearby village of Chapmanslade, just stroll down the bridleway to comfort and seclusion at Black Dog Farm.
There is nothing like the aroma of fresh bread baking as you awake in the morning to set you off in the best mood possible. Breakfast including fresh locally-produced bacon and sausages accompanied by new-laid eggs from the chickens you can watch roaming the garden.
Hospitality - unsurpassed.

Room Tip: Great views from all the rooms.

Stayed 2 nights at Black Dog Farm over Easter weekend and had a lovely time. Fraser and Lyn are incredibly friendly and accommodating - making the effort to learn the names of everyone who was staying and even remembering that it was a guest's birthday. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The b&b is just over 10 minutes' drive from Longleat and about 30 minutes from Bath so conveniently located for a bit of exploring and sightseeing.
