So, we emailed and researched some country B&Bs near Bath but some were run inefficiently, and some didn't even reply to our request for info. The staff at Waterhouse did. Incredible! How can such a place exist without a higher profile and without it being booked out months or years in advance? Expectations: old farmhouse B&B, with all the associated lack of mod cons. Reality: 4 star boutique renovated with a few rooms and a small dining room which seats about a dozen people, but which creates food equal to some of the best in the Bath area. The rooms are bright and airy, even when they had to add extra beds for us. We ended up with 2 bedrooms. The advice of the staff regarding local out-of-the-way old pubs, local walks and attractions and the view and 2 minute walk over to the village were very helpful and enhanced our enjoyment immensely. I don't expect Waterhouse to stay so quiet for long, because when word gets out, it's going to be more difficult to get a booking here.
