“Loved it”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Having read the foregoing reviews I feel I have very little to add.

This is quintessentially English hospitality at its best. Pauline is an engaging host who sought to ensure our stay was most comfortable.

The rooms are quirky and delightfully decorated and appointed. Lovely subtle touches in the provision of toiletries and drinks/snacks.

Lashings of hot water, a bath, a very cosy room, and a splendid breakfast - the short stay was faultless. This is a diamond find of a place with true character in easy distance to Bradford on Avon and Bath alike.

I most strongly recommend the Beeches as a place from where to explore.

We stayed on 4th April for two nights in The Old Cart House and my Mum stayed in The Old Dairy next door. Both had heating on when we arrived very warm and cosy! We arrived at 20:30pm and the owner Pauline was there to greet us. Dropped our bags off and headed for the Dandy Lion pub in Bradford on Avon which was great - excellent food and our little dog was very welcome! Very friendly locals! Amazing choice of hot drinks in room and lovely touches bottled water chocolate,shortbread,fudge awaiting you. Lovely white towels flannels all replaced by clean ones if you required each day - shower gel,hand cream,liquid soap,tissues etc. Be careful water VERY HOT in bathroom lovely bath nice to be able to have a soak instead of just a shower during stay. The location was perfect so close to local town and Bath! The farmhouse and grounds are so lovely with the animals for young children and families. The breakfast was amazing you really could choose whatever you wanted the night before and if you like a hearty filling breakfast or light option Pauline happy to oblige! My husband only had one picky personal dislike blankets instead of duvet. We definitely would return lovely short break with our little dog Alfie!! Thank you Pauline for posting his harness to us which we left behind!!!

Nice warm,cosy & clean cottage on the outskirts of bradford and avon with helpful owners and brilliant breakfast and good internet connectivity. Having said that please remember having your own car is a must.

Pauline and Nigel are excellent hosts. No detail is left out and many more are included than you would have anywhere else. You find tea and coffee making facilities in most B and Bs these days, but not many also have little samples of home made fudge and lovely marshfield speciality biscuits (eg millionaire shortbread). There is a fresh bowl of fruit, bottles of water, every kind of tea possible, ground coffee sachets, a torch, an umbrella to borrow, a corkscrew and and and .
We took over all the rooms as it was a birthday trip. Every room was individual and perfect. Thank you so much for making our stay with friends so special.
The breakfasts were delicious and the menu extensive and loads of choice.
Thank you to The Beeches.

Room Tip: The rooms are all outstanding and individual, but we loved the farmhouse room .

Dear Susan T,
It is so nice of you to take the time to write such great things about the Beeches Farm house,I think you like it here as much as we do!
Thank you for choosing to stay at The Beeches farm House for your celebration 'get together'
We enjoyed being part of the 'cloak and dagger' surprise planned for the big Oh Birthday.and enjoyed our view from the main farm house as more and more of your family popped out of their hiding places in the rooms with balloons and bubbly!
We are so pleased that all of your group had such a great time and we hope that they will all be back again to enjoy some more of the area in the not too distant future.
Happy the Birthday Boy had a Happy Birthday.
Nice meeting you all, Best Wishes.
Pauline and NIgel.

We spent a total of 3 nights in the Family room (the Milking shed) for 2 adults and 2 teenage children. We had a lovely time and the owner made us feel very welcome. The farmhouse is very easy to find, well signposted and it is close to Bradford -on-Avon town centre with a great pub called the Castle Inn where we dined every night. The Beeches Farmhouse is very quiet and off the road and has various farm animals and our children enjoyed chasing them!

I can't fault anything really about our stay. However, and this is perhaps being a little picky, but it would have been good if the owner had put the heating on prior to our arrival in our room as it was a particularly cold day when we arrived (10-12 degrees celsius) and upon entering the room it felt unfortunately cold and damp and it took us about a good hour to get the room up to a comfortable temperature. Most people don't like to arrive into a cold room whether it is a restaurant, dentist waiting room, hotel room etc. so it would have been nice to put it on perhaps one hour prior to our arrival just to get the chill off.

One last thing, the picture of the Family room on the Beeches Farmhouse internet website looks big and spacious. However, their picture is deceptive and when you enter the room it is not at all as big as it is portrayed on their website. We chose that room as we didn't want to feel to be too much on top of each other in the room and have some room to walk for the 4 of us but we were a little cramped and it left not much room to put our 3 small suitcases and a travel bag anywhere and kept bumping into them. There was a luggage rack provided to put one suitcase on it but there was nowhere we could unfold it as there would have been no room to walk to the bathroom to the suitcases were just kind of going from corner to corner as we moved around the room. The room was very clean and there were a lot. of little special touches added such as flannels (very rare to be given these to use in a bed and breakfast!), shower gel, shower cap, a generous choice of tea, herbal teas and a variety of coffees. Just to note that the shower runs totally cold after only 2 adults showering separately. So if a family of 4 wants to shower one after each other in the morning this would not be possible and 2 would have to shower in the evening, something we did which was fine for us but might not be fine for other families.

The breakfast was superb I must say and I have never experienced such a great choice of options that you can choose from for your breakfast from hot home made waffles, to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon or a full english breakfast which was enormous.The portions are very generous and the quality excellent.The owner also serves daily a home cooked fruit compote which was delicious! It was a pleasure to go down for breakfast every morning and it truly set us off for the whole day.

It was overall a very good Bed and Breakfast but if you are looking for a large family room that sleeps 2 older children it may be worth considering opting for 2 separate rooms.

Room Tip: Opt for 2 rooms if you sleep more than 3 people

From when we arrived to when we left we were made very welcome and helped with all our needs.
It would be difficult to walk to Bradford on Avon in the country lanes but the Hotel position is lovely. Every service seems to have been anticipated and attended to you will find all you need within your room or the grounds of this lovely farm building.
The hostess, Pauline, will I am sure,read and digest every review and if anybody has noticed a problem, this would be rectified and that fault would never occur again.
I challenge you to find fault with this house/hotel !!

Really good accomodation in a very convenient situation for exploring Bradford on Avon and surroundings. However, we thought it a little expensive. We have paid less elsewhere and had perfect accomodation. Although the rooms are very clean & comfortable, there were little irritating niggles that we don't usually come across - the bathroom mirror was very small and off centre & there was no shaving mirror; the bath tap dripped, staining the bath, which therefore looks uninviting & needs re-enamelling. We also had to climb into the bath to reach the taps easily! This is, of course, being really picky! The fresh fruit & water in the room were a much appreciated touch, and the bath towels were generously sized and plentiful. Breakfast was excellent. It would however have been useful to know that most pubs in the area don't serve food on Monday evenings - we drove to three before we found our dinner!!
