About Robin Allison-Smith
We are a busy and successful writer (Bel) and photographer (Robin - semi-retired!) who find Boyd Farm the perfect place to live and work. We love the peace of our ten acres, only six miles from all the amenities of Bath and Bristol. Very special is the little community we have created on the homestead - with Dan (son) and his wife Aimee running the Splitscreen Ice Cream Company from their cottage, while in the adjoining cottage live close friends. Between them they have two children and a baby on site - which means a trampoline, a climbing frame, swings etc for visiting children to use too. Sometimes the cluster of 300 year old buildings which makes up our property is utterly silent, sometimes bustling, but always friendly and interesting. We make you very welcome and are always on hand to help.

Why Robin Allison-Smith chose Bitton
We moved out of the centre of Bath because we wanted no traffic noise and to experience the perfect peace of this rural backwater. But because we love the arts we like the fact that we can be in the centre of Bath in 15-20 minutes, to go to the theatre, the art galleries and museums, the Bath Thermae Spa, and so on. Bristol is easily reached, but just a little further away. All in all we chose a perfect spot for enjoyment of the countryside AND sophisticated city life. From here it's easy to drive to places like Wells and Cheddar Gorge (and so many other places too) then come back at night to light the woodburner and be cosy. After all, who doesn't want the best of ALL worlds?
What makes this cottage unique
We enjoy looking for wildlife and take great delight in the knowledge that otters, owls, kingfishers, badgers, deer, rabbits, trout, crayfish, herons, ducks and of course the foxes (our chickens safe in a run!) are all co-existing with us. Guests who sit for long enough in the special picnic spot by the river may be rewarded with sightings too. This is a magical spot.
