This cottage was exquisite. Perfect in every way- very roomy, very clean, very modern and finished to the highest of specs. The soap in each bathroom was divine.. a small detail that went a long way! The beds were so comfy and each room had a different look and feel which we loved. The kitchen was stocked up very well making it really feel like a home from home. We had no trouble making a cooked meal each night as we would at home. Alexandra's directions to the cottage were very clear and easy to follow. Parking was brilliant too with plenty of space. The wifi was brilliant and definitely needed as the signal is very poor. I'd recommend this cottage for families and couples, it'll offer something different for everyone. Alexandra should be extremely proud of the Parlour, it's the best cottage we've ever stayed in.

The Dairy is fantastic: beautifully furnished, peaceful idyllic location and so comfortable. We couldn't fault it in anyway. Alexandra was the perfect host and we would happily recommend The Dairy to anyone. It a quite, secluded luxury accommodation in beautiful countryside within easy reach of the centre of bath. What's not to love. Thank you so much.

Colin - July 2017

The accommodation was spotless with wonderful views accross the countryside. Everything you need with added personal touches. Within easy access of Bath, with the peace and quiet of the countryside. Would reccomend.

Wendy - March 2017

Beautiful cottage in quiet, countryside location but within a stone's throw of Bath and all it has to offer. Stylishly appointed, yet cosy, we felt very at ease and relaxed. Alexandra was quick and easy to communicate with. Highly recommend.

Really beautiful cottage in an equally beautiful setting. It was lovely to be greeted by Alex soon after arriving and she was very helpful - providing a map for our walk and giving tips on where to go for dinner - The Talbot Inn in Mells was just as excellent as she described! The cottage is in a very rural setting, which was perfect for us but we were a little surprised at just how "in the middle of nowhere" it was! Thank you again for a lovely weekend in the countryside, Alex!

Amazing stay. Host responded very quickly anytime we had a question. Very clean. Short drive into Bath. Gorgeous beds, showers. Breakfast was yummy. Will stay again.

Lovely setting in a little village in the rolling hills outside of Bath. The cottage itself was easy to find with Alex's directions. Large beautiful kitchen with all the amenities we needed for cooking several large dinners and baking. Some really nice touches when we arrived with mince pies and fresh bread on the counter, milk and butter in the fridge. The master suite is upstairs from the kitchen with a gorgeous walk-in shower. The family room is off the kitchen and has a large couch with a wood burning stove - perfect for quiet nights in watching movies together, reading or playing games. The second bedroom and bathroom are on the smaller side, but the space is used very well and everything is very tastefully decorated and designed. We slept 2 adults and 4 kids here (brought an air mattress for our two youngest) and the space was sufficient. Really no problems whatsoever and Alex was an attentive and accommodating host. Highly recommend.

The Dairy is in a wonderfully quiet village setting with amazing views to be enjoyed from the patio. Inside everything is beautifully stylish, with everything you could need for a short stay. Just 15 minutes from Bath and surrounded by fantastic scenery, there is plenty of choice of activities. We would definitely recommend.

Nicky - August 2017

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend here. The views are breath taking and the cottage is absolutely lovely. Alex was easy to get in touch with and always responded quickly. We would definitely stay here again!

Ems - May 2017

Great place to stay. Immaculate, and beautifully furnished with everything you could need in there. Very comfy beds and bedding, and lovely quiet location set in fantastic scenery. Lovely little extras too with Alexandra leaving bread/milk/butter/jams and also very nice toiletries. Contact with the host was excellent and made to feel very welcome as was our dog. Would definitely recommend this place and will be visiting again in the future. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Beautiful cottage, very clean and very accommodating. Lovely spot, with easy access to Bath! Would highly recommend!

Louise - April 2017

Alex was fantastic - warm, welcoming and super helpful. Gave loads of local knowledge and made it a really personal and great experience. The Parlour is perfect in every way, warm, cosy, high spec, amazingly well catered for children. The sofa and beds are so comfy. Towels fluffy. Stay here - you won't regret it.

Kat - January 2017

Very comfy tastefull cottage in the beautifull countryside. Good for making walks and close to Bath and park & ride to Bath. Alex is a friendly and helpfull host.

Immaculately clean and stylishly decorated. Lovely property in a beautiful area and a great hostess. We'd love to visit again.

Great cottage, with spectacular views. Very well equipped kitchen, complete with log burner. Was a very enjoyable stay and came home very relaxed.

We had a wonderful stay at 'The Parlour'. The directions to the idyllic country setting were specific and got us there easily. The cottage was warm and inviting upon arrival. The cottage was very impressive with a wonderfully appointed kitchen and modern appliances. The living room featured a comfortable couch and wall mounted TV, perfect for cosy nights in watching a few films. The highlight for us was the bedding, with the luxurious quilt and bed. We spent the day in Bath, utilising the 'Park and Ride' which was close by to travel on the buses into town to see the sights. This accommodation was perfect for our party of 3 adults and 2 10 month olds. Very family friendly and highly recommended. Alexandra gave us clear and prompt communications and it was a fuss free process.

Chelsea - February 2015

We had a wonderful break at Alexander's beautiful cottage! It is immaculate, comfortable and very well equipped! We loved the quaint village, and enjoyed local footpaths as well as visiting near by farm shops, Bath and Cheddar Gorge which were both fantastic days out. Thank you very much!

Rebekah - April 2015

A well appointed cottage in a beautiful setting. Excellent area for dogs and dog walkers.

Jo - July 2017

Everything was so easy, beautiful property, lovely touches, comfortable beds. Really was a little retreat.

Harriet - June 2017

Beautiful location in the countryside. Cute little village with easy access to Bath. Lovely spacious home which was clean and cosy. Alex was a great host and communication was brilliant. Highly recommend staying here.

Emily - April 2017

Idillic location with wonderful countryside views and great walks. The Parlour is renovated to a really high specification with a great deal of style and is the perfect country getaway. Loved it!

I had booked the parlour for my husbands birthday and our 14 month daughter. Alex made the parlour super child friendly leaving us with a toy box, cot and high chair. We wanted somewhere peaceful and scenic and the parlour is situated in exactly that. It is set in the most beautiful surroundings. Alex also recommended things we could do. We went to soft play at Guerney Farm as the weather was awful but still fun was had by all. We went to 2 pubs that Alex suggested The Wheatshef and Talbot inn, both served great food and both had incredible atmospheres. The parlour has all the mod cons one can think of, sofa in the living room is extremely Comfortable too! We had the best relaxing weekend and will definitely recommend to others.

Claudia - June 2015

The Parlour is located in a beautiful spot surrounded by green country hills and a town of old buildings and fences. It was a stunning place to stay. The Parlour itself was very clean and modern with all the bells and whistles you could want for a house in the country. It is very spacious with the two bedrooms being at either end of the house for added privacy but with the lounge and kitchen located in the hub of the space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Jackson - September 2017

What a beautiful place to stay! Beautiful countryside, secluded and very quiet - excellent after the hustle and bustle of London. Super comfortable beds and just as lovely as seen in the pictures. Alex was very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely return!

Amanda - July 2017

Ideal place for short break with family and away from the big city and routin daily life.

Ali - February 2017

Great value everything you need and more 5 star

Sharon - January 2017

The dairy was an ideal location for a restful few days away from home. The cottage was very well equipped, clean and homely with nice touches like milk, butter, bread and wine left for us and delightful toiletries in the bathroom. Our family group (of what is essentially 3 adults) found we had plenty of room and a comfortable stay, the wifi allowed us access to our laptops which seems to be essential to the children. The beds and bedding were luxurious and we all slept well. The cottage is very peaceful and as we were very lucky with the weather we were able to enjoy the outstanding views. We didn't meet Alex as she was on holiday but she responded quickly to queries before we went and everything worked exactly as she said it would. She was kind enough to allow us to have friends to visit on our first evening and this added to our enjoyment. We were sad to leave and would love to return!

Lynn - April 2015

A lovely place to stay. We had everything we needed. The children enjoyed playing with the toys & games. It was a beautiful location within easy reach of lots to do. We would definitely recommend it.

Shelly - April 2015

We had a great few days at the Dairy. The property was finished to a high quality and just as described. Alexandra was very helpful and we look forward to staying again.
