Absolutely fantastic weekend. The cottage is more amazing in real life it seems to ooze warmth and charm. The rooms and decor are lovely. The garden is big, private and well kept. We also arranged afternoon tea and it exceeded expectations the scones were freshly made that morning! Jo at the cottage was lovely to deal with too
Perfect cottage for our hen weekend! Everyone in our group was impressed with The Wilderness and the spaces worked perfectly with what we had planned. The dinning room space was the best feature and we had both an evening meal and a 'Bake Off' activity in there. The room has curtains by both sets of doors which was a great idea as we could set the table/room for the big reveal! This allowed us to create a wow moment for the group as it was hidden away. The living room was handy for playing sing star and the kitchens were good communal space. There was ample parking and no need to worry about space for cars. Which is handy as other cottages closer to bath had limited space! There were shot glasses, wine glasses and plenty of mugs! The dishwasher was also a party saver! The sauna was very nice and fitted in with our spa morning at the cottage, which involved Sam (mobile beautician that was recommended) coming in to do treatments. Correspondence with Jo (one of the owners) has been very friendly and helpful. There was a welcome card and some bubbly in the fridge when we arrived and I received a phone call at the end of our stay asking if everything went well. Both gestures were greatly appreciated received and added a nice friendly and reassuring touch to the stay. I would recommend this cottage!

We hired the cottage for a hen weekend for my sister and it's actually hard to describe how fabulous the cottage is. It was absolutely perfect for our needs, a big kitchen, big dining room, beautiful rooms, clean bedding, every utensil you can imagine & Jo even left us a welcome card & bubbly! When we arrived we were like excited school children viewing all the rooms & bathrooms, it was like a maze! It has so much character, it was spotless, it was spacious and the layout was perfect for what we needed. We arranged games in one lounge and set up a photo booth in the second lounge which worked so well. We used Libra minibuses Saturday into Bath and the service was spot on. The weekend went so fast and the cottage made the whole weekend feel really special. We are desperate to return and do it all again & I cannot recommend booking with Jo at the Wilderness enough, the lady is a saint keeping the place look brand new & extremely well kept. My sister had an unforgettable weekend. Thank you so much Jo! X
We have recently returned from spending a super week at the Wilderness. It was a three generation family get-together. There was plenty of space for us all. The kitchen was really well equiped with plenty of pans, plates and mugs and TWO kettles (important at breakfast and tea time!) so it was easy to cater for 15 adults and three little ones.
Jo and John were very welcoming and extremely helpful, both in setting up our accomodation to suit us (cots, high chairs and sleeping arrangements) and with dealing with an issue that arose during our stay. Brilliant people and I would thoroughly recommend the Wilderness for similar events.
Had a great weekend organised a hen which everyone loved closed to everything. It was so clean and tidy when arrived.
The communication between owner and myself was excellent she tended to every need.
Plenty of space in cottage for everyone will definitely be coming back.
Thanks again for a lovely weekend away in your cottage
We stayed at The Wilderness for half term week to celebrate my mother in law's 60th birthday and found the accommodation to be absolutely fantastic. Plenty of space for such a large group (18 in all) of us and good outdoor space for the kids to enjoy themselves also.
Would definitely use again, and wouldn't hesitate to give the highest recommendation if asked!
Excellent for Hen Parties. Taxis can be pre booked on 07927 730629 from Westbury station for £8 each way. Lots of parking. Rooms comfortable, bathrooms clean, kitchen equipment plentiful and matching, lots of little details (night-lights, wood for the wood burner) thought of. Towels and bedding fine - but don't forget the loo rolls for the many loos! Neither living room sat the whole party but most of us got a sofa spot in the larger living room, which was great for playing games as we could all join in and hear each other. The dining table sat everyone comfortably and made a great place for a dinner party. Management cleaned thoroughly enough between stays to find my jeans squished under the bed, which is a good sign - and then posted them back to me once I realised free of charge. I'm sure they'd rather not do that every time, but very good service when needed.
