What Our Guests Say
The lodge we stayed in was excellent. It sleeps 6 - one double and 4 single beds in 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen has everything you need for a good self catering break - microwave, dishwasher, fridge, cutlery and cooking utensils all provided. A washing machine is also available, should you need one. There's also a TV, Bluetooth speaker and Wi-Fi available (as well as a DVD player discreetly hidden under the TV) - good for distracting kids after a day out. We did have a sight issue with the WiFi, but after quick call and the router was quickly rebooted. Sally was very helpful and made suggestions for maximising a visit to Longleat. Really nice touch was the bread, butter and milk provided (would recommend bringing your own jam and sandwich fillings). Great place to stay if you want to visit Longleat or Bath. Frome is close by and a nice place to visit too.
We stayed in one of the eco-lodges onsite and it was awesome. Warm, spacious and extremely well equipped, set on a beautiful site in rural surroundings with wonderful views out if any window. Even my daughter would approve and she has high standards.
The first time we stayed was in 2017 and because we had such a great time we booked again in 2018. The lodges were very comfortable, we booked 2 of them because our grandchildren wanted to run around and keep everyone awake. Excellent centre to visit Longleat and the rest of the area. Hope to visit again when all the restrictions are lifted. Would certainly recommend the site.

We stayed here for 2 nights as we wanted to visit a few places in Somerset, the cottage we stayed in was lovely and very clean, made us feel like we were at home. Definitely would recommend to anyone, can’t fault our stay in any way, worth the full 5* review
A perfect location for a three night stay to explore Frome, Longleat and Bath. Sally was most welcoming, with good communication leading up to our break. The lodge itself is well appointed, spacious and comfortable. Home from home. Thank you Sally.
Great location to those wishing to site see in Somerset.
Great spacious property and grounds, kid friendly. Location was perfect to see the sites in Somerset and beyond. Property was clean and well furnished with all mode cons. Staff were friendly and on-hand during our 2-week stay.
We had a wonderful week in Beckington! We immediately felt comfortable in the spacious, modern and well kept house. When we arrived in the evening, bread, milk and butter were already in the fridge. So we didn't have to go shopping for breakfast next morning. Sally welcomed us warmly and recommended some interesting trips in the region, while Steve came along for looking after the house after a regional power cut. The house is well equipped, even dishwasher tabs and salad oil were on the hand. Sitting at the dining table was always a pleasure, just because of having a great view over the grain fields or looking at the other guests' children playing on the vast property. We enjoyed the quiet environment, but also used many opportunities for excursions to exciting destinations in the surrounding area. Our highest recommendations!

We have just returned from a weekend away at the lodge near Bath. We visited Bath Christmas markets while staying here as it's so local to Bath city centre. The lodge has literally everything you could ever wish for in holiday accommodation. The owners are friendly and helpful from the moment of booking, to arrival and when leaving. There is a lovely welcome pack left for us on arrival, perfect if you're waiting for shopping to arrive and need a cup of tea. The facilities are faultless, the beds comfy and the entire property is clean and beautifully presented. Waking up to the country views is a perfect way to spend a weekend getaway. This is my third visit here and we will be back. Thank you!

We have just returned from a fantastic long weekend. We were a family of six adults and two children. We had a cottage and a lodge. Perfect. This meant that we could all eat breakfast together in the lodge. The lodge and cottage have everything that you could want. They are very tastefully decorated. We all said that we could imagine living there and would be very comfortable! Even though the weather was atrocious, we were all cosy and warm. Sally and Steve were very helpful and ensured that we had everything that we needed. The welcome pack of bread, butter, milk, eggs, tea and coffee was much appreciated. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return again , possibly in summer months when we could take advantage of the outside area. We visited Longleat and saved a significant amount of money booking through Sally and Steve. Thank you.

Had lovely relaxing stay at Steve & Sally’s cottages on 19/6/18 for 3 nights to visit Longleat with our granddaughter. The cottage was set in a beautiful quiet position just off the A36, 12 miles from Bath and approximately 15mins from Longleat. The cottage has everything you’d want for a stay with or without kids. The property has all the safety equipment you’d need such as stair gates, child locks on the ‘velux’ windows plus a Highchair and bed guard. We were welcomed by Sally who gave us all the info we needed and even arranged additional entry tickets to Longleat for our son who arrived for a night from university in Brighton. They had even stocked the fridge with milk, butter, and eggs. The farmhouse loaf of crusty bread was soooo tasty and just lasted the three nights! The field in front of the property was vast with a range of children’s toys, ride on and static, that our granddaughter loved. A large outdoor table with bbq’s laid on. I would highly recommend a stay at this site, you won’t be disappointed.
