Great location and great house
Stayed here Friday to Monday for a 20 person stag do. We all had a blast, the house is a great size and the games room is a nice touch. The owners of the house were very easy to contact and answered any questions promptly and efficiently. Several pubs within walking distance and supermarkets within a 10 minute drive to get supplies. Located close to both Bristol and Bath so very easy to get to these for a night out. Would thoroughly recommed staying here.
Excellent venue for a hen do
Booked this property for two nights for a hen weekend. All the bedrooms were nice and spacious with comfortable beds. Living areas (lounge and dining room) perfect for big group meals and the kitchen is very well equipped with all the necessary pots, pans, crockery, cutlery and glasses. Hot tubs were excellent (although I'd suggest asking the temperature is set a bit lower before you arrive - they were too hot for us on the first night!) Great outdoor seating area too. Bath only a short drive away and beautiful countryside nearby. Can't recommend this highly enough for large group stays.
Hi noted hot tub temp , how ever when the lid is off for a while temp drops many thanks jim
Could be so much better
This is a decent place for a big group. Plenty of beds and a big house. However, we all felt that the place could be so much better as was not maintained well at all. Neither hot tub worked properly, the jets on 1 didn't work at all, and only 1 jet worked on the other. The place could be a LOT cleaner. You have to take your own towels, and there are literally no towels anywhere, we even went out to buy our own tea towels as we were using toilet roll in the kitchen! The dishwasher did not work throughout the stay and thats a lot of washing up. Lots of light bulbs were broken so we had to move lamps around to lighten dark areas.
I would call this place good for big groups purely on the size, but do not expect luxury at all.
Communication prior was really poor and I felt nervous transferring the large sums of money as seemed very disorganised. I even had an email requesting payment weeks after it had been sent.
I was unaware of the dish washer as it happened that week end and they never informed me as I would have tried to get it fixed , the hot tubs do work but they were not operated correctly , we clearly state on booking that there is no towels supplied . We do have a very good track record at this property
15 of us spent 2 nights in this fabulous house, wonderfully decorated, interior was beautiful, exactly as described. Glasses, pots and plates etc a plenty - no need to take any with you. Bath was just £15 away in a taxi great for a girls get away or night out. Lovely local pubs within a mile or so. Great communication and service from the owner - super helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It was absolutely fantastic!!!! I will never forget this weekend away.
fantastic hen house!
We stayed at Highfield farm for my best friend's hen do and we loved the property, from the ample living area to the hot tubs to the lovely quotes on the lounge and bathroom walls, it was a great base for our weekend and everyone loved it. We also had a cocktail making class at the house one night (booked separately) and the dining room procedure perfect space for him to set up.
Owners were helpful and answered Amy queries we had. Would definitely recommend for a hen party, big group of friends or family.
The perfect base in Bath
Cannot recommend this place highly enough - perfect base for a hen weekend in Bath.. It's even better than it looks in the pictures - very clean, comfy beds, loads of space (even with 25 people staying for the weekend) and the owner is very helpful and accommodating. The kitchen is really well equipped for group cooking - plenty of plates, glasses, pans etc - and a huge dining room across the side of the house.
We stayed in the Winter which was nice as the main house was lovely and snug, but it would be lovely to stay in Summer as the BBQ area and hot tubs would be great in the sunshine.
Just make sure you book cabs in advance if you want to go into Bath/Bristol in the evenings.
