We stayed here for four nights and it was wonderful! Helen was lovely and made us feel very welcome. The cottage is beautiful and in a great location. We visited Bath, Stourhead, Haynes International Motor Museum and spent one day in Weston Super-mere. It's ideal for anyone who wants a sight seeing trip as it's so close to so many great spots. Would highly recommend to anyone and hopefully we will visit again next year!
From the Owner
“Originally from Shaftesbury we were looking for our first home together. When we bought Long Hill House no one had lived in the nearby coach house since the coachman and coach (mud floors, hayloft etc). It took us three years to extend and convert - and we love it!”
