Welcome to School Cottages…

…welcome to Farmborough, Bath and our award winning 4 Star Gold Bed and Breakfast accommodation and 5 Star Self-Catering Cottage.

A retreat in the Somerset countryside, School Cottages are within 15 minutes of Bath and are only a short drive from Bristol, Wells, Bradford on Avon, Lacock, Cheddar, Stonehenge and Glastonbury. A destination for all seasons, where the log fires create a cosy ambience to the perfect winter hideaway and the extensive gardens bursting with beautiful cottage plants provide a colourful backdrop to the British summer.

School Cottages maintain their traditional country charm while offering the luxury and comfort of contemporary furnishings and décor throughout. They are cosy and homely, yet full of character and are perfect as an idyllic romantic retreat, a family getaway or that relaxing well-earned break you’ve been promising yourself.

Our beautiful grounds invite you to sit by the pond awhile, browse by the kitchen garden, or visit the orchard with pygmy goats and chickens, whose eggs provide a part of our sumptuous breakfasts.

We are happy to cater for specific dietary needs and offer a variety of packages ranging from romantic breaks and spa deals, to VIP accommodation for local festivals, and discounted rates for business guests.
