We had a lovely time at Gripp Barn; it felt like a really special place to stay. Really well equipped, very cosy & comfortable, and a brilliant spot from which to visit Bath, Bristol etc. The Pig & The Carpenters Arms are lovely nearby spots for lunch too.

We stayed at Gripp barn for a long weekend and we're very impressed by the warm welcome we received from the owner Claire. The barn is beautiful and very luxurious however more attention to cleaning needed as there was lots of dust and cob webs. Unfortunately there was a issue with the hot water in the shower which couldn't be resolved during our sRead moretay. My advice... Bring your own bath sheet as the towels are small (no hot tub towel). Hide

We booked for my 50th birthday and wanted somewhere special. The location is great generally, owners friendly, barn looks great. Youll need slippers as stone floors throughout, the barn was warm, the hot tub great. Nice welcome pack. However as this was a pricey barn and luxury there were little things that irritated. Cobwebs and dust in places, aiRead morer freshers empty, strong chemical smell in kitchen near utility room, I hadnt expected insects in the barn especially bathroom. Hide

Fanatastic cottage , very spacious, well equiped and finished to a high standard. The area is nice and central for Bath and Bristol giving lots of places to visit but you could quite happily spend all day relaxing in the cottage. We have a 4 and 7 year old who loved it. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely barn conversion in a nice and quiet setting. Very well equipped and comfortable for a few days or for a week. We stayed with a 1 year old and 3 year old and it worked well.

Very welcoming hosts, including the 2 geese who gavRead moree chase and caused amusement more than once. Many thanks! Hide
