Welcoming atmosphere
A very welcoming atmosphere. Artistically furnished. Many wonderful details for ease and comfort. The bed was quite low and we had difficulty getting out of it. A lovely breakfast. Beautiful grounds. A very nice stay.

We were only able to stay one night, but would dearly have loved to stayed all week!!! Wonderful hosts in Mike & Rowena. Thank you both so much. Can’t wait to go back to this lovely establishment. We even had a game of snooker before we left!

Fabulous place
We loved staying here! Rowena and Mike were wonderful, warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The grounds and countryside were beautiful and it was so quiet at night. The bed was incredibly comfy and the room was clean and spacious. Care was taken to ensure little packaging waste - milk and juice in glass bottles that were used again. Breakfast was delicious, really wonderful, fresh and locally sourced ingredients perfectly cooked! A fantastic place and stay. We’d love to visit again!

Superb hosts who look after you.
I wasn't sure what to expect from The House near Bath. Firstly the location. Do we stay in Bath with a price increase or outside for better value for money etc. Woolverton is 15-20 minutes south of Bath. Its also well placed for surrounding areas like Frome too. Driving to Bath, we found a car park space fairly easy in the morning but it got busier as the day went on. Taxi and bus are an option too. Then theres the property. Is it a hotel or a B&B? It kind of has the best bits of both. Free parking, wi-fi and lovely surrounding land with a nice night sky. Leaving the best until last are the hosts Mike and Rowena. Really nice people who provide the personal touch which is why the ratings are high for this place. The breakfast is cooked to order with food from locally sourced farms. The quality of everything is not sacrificed for profit. They could easily use inferior food drink and toiletries for the sake of profit but the customer experience is put before that. Breakfast is included and cooked to order. Elsewhere fruitbowls, cereals and continental breakfast is all high quality and/or fresh. The bar located in a large conservatory is stocked with Britsh drinks and spirits from independent or family run businesses, again supporting lcoal and British companies. There are plenty of books and games for children too and a marvellous snooker table too. Mike and Rowena make this place. You want them to do well as they put so much into it. Highly recommended and great value.
