Reviewed 28 May 2014

From the warmth of the welcome to the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms through to the quality food served at breakfast you simply cannot go wrong booking in here. Excellent service; excellent setting; excellent all round.

Just wanted to write to say how lovely Tim was.

I was searching for a cottage to stay before, during and after our wedding at Priston Mill in March, most importantly I needed somewhere to accommodate my bridal party before the wedding.
From the pictures a feel in love with the cottage and contacted Tim via email to book.
Tim was very helpful, pleasant and extremely kind.
He not only explained that he felt his cottage wouldn't be big enough for a group ( of 6 ) getting ready for a wedding, he offered for us to visit them before booking and selflessly recommended a lovely cottage just down the road which was perfect for us and had such a beautiful grounds for our photos.

Not many people out there who would be so honest or recommend other competitors !!
Thank you so much Tim.
Hope to come stay with you for our 1st anniversary

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in School Cottages B&B. We found the perfect mixture of quiet and peaceful space in the countryside, surrounded by beautiful gardens and delightful animals, coupled with lots to do for days out in Bath and Wells. Tim was helpful, friendly and paid great attention to every detail during our stay. The breakfasts were a highlight of each day, especially the homemade jams!! We will return!!

My wife, son and I have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at the self-catering cottage attached to the B&B. We wanted somewhere close enough to Bath but far enough out of the city centre for us to enjoy some 'space'. We certainly found that! The cottage is ideally situated 10-15 minutes drive away from Bath and is absolutely stunning inside. It was a true home from home. The cottage is easily large enough for a small family to stay in and the garden it looks out in to is a wonderful bonus. My son particularly enjoyed chatting to the goats and chickens that are housed in the far corner of the garden! If you're looking for somewhere to stay outside of either Bath or Bristol and have always shied away from a self-catering break, then let this be the first time you try something different. You will not be disappointed. We are already working out when we can go back!

My wife stayed here for a week to attend a nearby animal therapy course and I joined her for only one night, at the end of my business trip in NY. The place is very charming and easy to find! Tim was very friendly and even joined us for a drink at the local pub the evening I arrived.

I took a few photos of the newborn goats (I understand the parent goats are award-winning!) and also of the garden and surrounding area. The next day we continued our trip and explored the English countryside, but not before enjoying a nice breakfast made to order with amazing bread and jam, coffee and an egg muffin with extra crispy bacon (just as I had requested).

Great place ... looking forward to going back!

Room Tip: Not sure of the other rooms, but ours faced the garden (the front of the cottages) and was a nice lo...

My family stayed at School Cottages last weekend. We hired the whole of the B & B and cottage for our sons wedding at Priston Mill. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim to provide, amend or go that extra mile for. The house is very comfortable and garden are a delight and the breakfast certainly prepared us for a long day ahead of us, including the freshly laid eggs from the chickens in the garden. We would certainly recommend School cottages to any friends and relatives staying in the vicinity. Thank you Tim

Room Tip: All rooms are well equipped and very comfortable

Some things in life are a must and this is one of them. Great for a visit to Bath with brilliant access via the nearby park and ride. The service and welcome is impossible to beat and the breakfast experience will live in your memory. The Pygmy goats are so cute and the garden is beautiful. This is the best way to relax in the South West. Can't wait to return.
