We fell in love with 16th Century Court Farm the moment we saw it and have lovingly restored the ten acres of grounds and many of the buildings.
At the heart of what we offer is a two bedroom private cottage for short breaks and longer holidays. If there are more of you, we have other bedrooms and more space available for family get-togethers, parties and larger events including wedding receptions.
Designed to be contemporary, comfortable and welcoming - we offer the opportunity to share a little of the life of a smallholder but never too far from luxurious comforts.
You'll find us near Frome and twenty minutes south of Bath on the Somerset/Wiltshire border.
The cottage, with its own private entrance, is in boutique hotel style and has two double bedrooms with their own bath & shower rooms.
It overlooks a delightful courtyard full of herbs, pears, figs and swooping swallows from late April to September.

Accommodation extends into the dramatic, multi-purpose Barn room and through to additional glorious bedrooms in the farmhouse - making a very comfortable stay for up to 12. Though we have had groups up to 16 and events for over 200.

Guest comments via Baby Friendly Boltholes "We had an absolutely lovely weekend at the "cottage" - though it's more like a perfect picture from a designer house magazine. The grounds are super too, with an interior courtyard where the kids can play but not 'escape'." "...absolutely brilliant....like being on honeymoon (even with a toddler!!)".
Boutique Hotel specialists, Mr & Mrs Smith came out to see us and their website says..."For those craving self-catering solitude in a rural setting, both the ancient stone cottage and the 16th-century farmhouse rooms tucked away on Court Farm are the answer. Steeped in history, then redefined with high-design, up-to-the-second styling, The Cottage and The Farmhouse rooms can be booked together, or taken separately. Raucous family gathering on a farm - or remote and luxurious escape à deux...; It's up to you."
