My boyfriend and I were in need of a last minute mid-week break and decided on Cleeves Wood B&B in the Box Valley, just outside Bath. We were thrilled when we arrived to the beautiful rural setting down a picturesque, country lane. The hosts could not have been more welcoming on arrival with coffees/teas at the ready to be enjoyed in the fab gardens overlooking the completely unspoilt Box Valley. The room was very clean and tidy, we were given the 'cream room' which had a modern en-suite shower room and is a good sized double room (the bed is so comfy that we found it difficult getting up in the morning!) with all the usual requirements (hair dryer/kettle/storage etc.). The breakfast is served in dining room with an excellent fried breakfast, cereals, fruit and yoghurts, or smoked salmon etched if preferred. We stayed for just 2 nights, but it was such a relaxing break that we really could have done with an extra couple of nights!! As you may have guessed, we recommend this B&B very highly if you are looking for a relaxing break, great walks, even better pubs and only 5 mins drive to Bath centre, with an added bonus of a great nights sleep and friendly faces offering extensive local knowledge. We will be staying again if visiting Bath again soon!
