Spring Farm Amenities

London girl, Alexandra swapped the Big Smoke for the country life, when she up-sticked with husband, son and the family dog to a 17th century farmhouse near Bath and converted the cowshed into a pair of smart and cosy holiday cottages. The Parlour and The Dairy both have two bedrooms and Alexandra has designed and kitted out her cottages to be a simple, stress free escape to the country for even the most frazzled parents with little ones.

You can take the girl out of the city but not the Metro-chic out of the girl so the cottages have light, contemporary interiors with funky finishing touches, like the vintage Ercol dining table and 1950’s Robin Day Chairs in The Parlour. Naturally, the cottages are teched up for the latest in home entertainment too, with Wi Fi, and iPad, Little digital natives may still be tempted by the trunk of toys, teddies and books, plus Alexandra can provide other toys such as a space station, pirate ship, fire engines, farm yard, dinosaurs, superhero’s and a dolls house.

The cottages at Spring Farm have beautiful views over the rolling countryside of the Cam Valley, with gravel patios where grown-ups can snack, chat and relax outdoors while children play on trikes and ride-ons, in sandpits and a paddling pool. The fresh country air is always conducive to a good night’s sleep and especially when sinking into 1500 pocket sprung mattresses with 450 thread count cotton bedlinen and Hungarian Goose down duvets.
Although the cottages are great for getting away from it all in the country, there’s also plenty of things to see and do within easy reach, including the historic and happening city of Bath, the mystical music festival capital of Glastonbury and major family attractions like Longleat and Wookey Hole.

Accommodation overview

The Dairy at Spring Farm is a smart conversion of the original cowshed into a single storey cottage with two bedrooms for a family of four plus babies (2 high quality travel cots available). The living space, dining area and kitchen is open plan so parents can always keep an eye on little ones, whether they’re watching family DVD’s, or delving into the toy trunk. Exposed timbers add to the character of the cottage and families can snuggle down by a wood burning stove in the Thomas Lloyd Chesterfield sofa and armchair. Overlooking the lounge area, the spacious fitted kitchen is well equipped for family self-catering, including a built in double oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, plus the fridge is stocked for breakfast on day one and homemade ready meals can be ordered in advance. Both the double and one twin bedroom at The Dairy have been furnished and finished for a luxurious night’s sleep, with 1500 pocket sprung mattresses, 450 thread count linen and Hungarian goose down duvets. The light and airy bathroom also has premium Bramley products and a bath with a powerful rain shower overhead. For eating and playing outdoors, The Dairy has a gravel patio with a table and chairs, plus trikes, ride-ons, sand pits and a paddling pool are available.
