Bathford, Bath, Somerset, England
Tucked away behind the owner’s house in a very private location on the edge of the walled village of Bathford, this former dairy has been skilfully converted to a high standard, creating an exceptionally attractive space.

From the unusual approach via an ancient, narrow path and through an archway to a ‘secret’ patio, to the many original features of the building which dates from the early 17th century, Old Dairy Barn exudes character and style. There’s an impressive, beamed open-plan living room with inglenook on the ground floor and inspirational views across the valley towards the city from the main bedroom’s picture window upstairs.

Old Dairy Barn has been graded 4 stars, Gold Award by Visit England.

A cosy cottage, well kept and excellently equipped, with ample space and situated in a picturesque village. We appreciated the sunny upper floor und the magnificent view down to the church and to the Avon valley. An excellent location to visit nearby Bath - that can easily be reached by public transport - as well as to explore the countryside...

We had a fantastic holiday at the Old Dairy Barn. It was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The local area of Bathsford is lovely and we also enjoyed exploring further afield. We would definitely recommend staying here as it was brilliant. Thanks to Maggie for a warm welcome and a truly lovely place to stay.

So pleased we found the Old Dairy Barn in Bathford, we wanted to get away from the daily grind and what a wonderful stay we had. Beautiful courtyard that our son enjoyed thoroughly, amazing views, cosy and charming little cottage. Maggie (the owner) was very helpful. I would highly recommend staying at the Old Dairy Barn.
