Great Ashley Farm B&B
Reviewed 11 January 2012

We had a wonderful time at the cottage on Great Ashley Farm. We booked on late notice but still got a prompt, professional and very informative response from Helen who was able to accomodate us. The location of Great Ashley Farm is perfect for trips in the countryside (walks on the farms/runs along the canal/visits to nearby pubs and villages) as well as being very close to Bath. The cottage itself is lovely for a couple to stay in, beautifully done up, well thought out, quiet and very private. We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is fully kitted out and we were able to cook full meals ourselves. Helen was also kind enough to give us a breakfast basket which included all the essentials and a few perks. I would go here again in a second.

We stayed for 3 nights in September 2011. The farm is beautiful, the room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts to die for. Helen went out of her way to help us find the best walks, prettiest villages and gourmet pubs in the area. We loved wandering through fields of horses and cows to the pub and eating wild blackberries on the way home. This area is as beautiful as the Cotswolds without the crowds and a great place to stay when visiting Bath. We thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed at Great Ashley Farm for 3 nights in August 2011. What a lovely peaceful treasure to find after travelling for nearly 2 weeks around the UK with our daughter and my Mother. We stayed in the two rooms, one above the other attached to the main house. The room for Mum and Daughter was large and lovely as was ours. All spotlessly clean,very modern and very comfortable. Lovely fluffly white towels, nice big bathroom, picnic baskets if you required them left in your room. Helen, our hostess was freindly and very accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and helped us out with how to get to Bath, any scenic drives to take where to have a good meal each night - Fox and Hounds just up the road was great and not expensive. Breakfasts were scrumptious with full English or continental if you wished. Best of all it was in the countryside and you could really relax and enjoy a short break for a while before the travelling started again. Really revived the spirit. Thank you Helen for a wonderful stay. We would recommend Great Ashley Farm and if we should be in that part of the world again won't hesitate to stay with you.

Beautiful farmhouse in a peaceful setting. Our room was large and well equipped, the breakfasts are fantastic using local produce. Helen is a wealth of information about the local area and very friendly without being intrusive. loved our stay here and would highly recommend it.

We had high hopes for this one, because of all the prizes it had won, but we were slightly disappointed we are sorry to say. Accomodation is great, because you're very private. The location is wonderful and the gardens surrounding the B&B were a joy to sit in with the dogs. We stayed here for 2 nights and we really liked it, however, our room wasn't really cleaned properly. The bed wasn't made when we got back the first day (we had to go back to get some stuff, around 3 o'clock and our room hadn't been cleaned by then) and when we got back after dinner the bed wasn't made, but the covers were just a bit straightend (something which I do at home some days, but do not expect in a prize winning B&B).
The breakfast was really wonderful. All local products and excellently cooked! All in all we enjoyed our stay, but we had the feeling that we were a bit 'too much' and that the owner had better things to do than to see to its guests. The dogs made up for all of this, because they were great!

We really liked the village of Winsley, where we had some terrific meals at the Seven Stars pub/restaurant! We would certainly go there again!

I recently stayed at Great Ashley Farm - an idyllic setting! Its very quiet and relaxing. Its a perfect base for visiting local attractions such as Lacock but also Bath. Helen is extremely helpful, enthusiastic and very willing to help with local information, the best places to eat locally and the best routes to Bath and best parking in Bath which is really useful. The breakfast was delicious and I love the fact that the breakfast menu is made up of local produce - jams and marmelade made in Somerset and eggs from the local farm. Delicious! It really is a great B&B and I'd recommend it to any of my friends and family.
