A warm welcome from Mary, Jim, Georgia and Guy.
A move from Bath in 2003 back to Jim's family farm was the realisation of our idea to convert derelict cowsheds into luxurious self catering accommodation in a location that can only be described as stunning. We are lucky enough to live here with our young family - we love sharing it with all our guests who discover our little piece of paradise.
Steeped in history, these stunning barns have been lovingly restored breathing five star life into their 17 century spirit. With four properties, we have something to suit everyone, Bramble Cottage sleeps 2, Rowan and Birch Cottage sleep 4/5 and The Farmhouse sleeps 6/7.
Now a wedding reception venue during the summer months, we offer a unique package which includes exclusive use of our luxury accommodation together with the hire of our picturesque gardens for a marquee.
In an aim to lessen our carbon footprint, in November 2013, we converted to wood fuelled heating by installing a biomass boiler. This brings huge benefits to our cottages in the form of piping hot water, high pressure showers and the continued luxury of underfloor heating (conventional in Farmhouse) while at the same time being environmentally friendly. Jim loves showing our guests round his new 'baby' so please do ask us for a tour if you are interested.
Our newly installed tennis court is the ideal way to keep fit while you are here, one guest remarked 'now where else could you play tennis with such stunning views'. In addition, our new 'Balinese' Spa is already proving a welcome retreat for our guests as well as being open to the public, you will find the details below.
We live on site and personally welcome all our guests, making sure that your arrival is seamless and a perfect start to your holiday. We are also on hand during your stay to answer any queries or provide information which will enable you to make the most of your break at our beautiful cottages.
Our very own revitalising rural retreat. Having travelled extensively in South East Asia we always came home with a wish to emulate the outstanding facilities and service that we found in their spa’s. Inspired by the relaxing, calming and revitalising aura that we experienced we set about designing our very own Spa here to complement our five star luxury cottages.
As our lives become increasingly busy it has never been more important to find that elusive ‘me’ time, a little snippet of time to relax, recharge and revitalise. Our spa provides a haven in which to enjoy incredible facilities set within stunning countryside to energise the soul.
Our facilities include steam rooms, sauna’s, foot spa’s, aromatherapy room, tropical experience shower and a Rasul mud room as well as an outdoor area with outdoor wood fired hot tub. A modern , contemporary style of finishes and glass opens up this area highlighting the space and calming atmosphere within our thermal suite.
We have three exquisitely designed treatment rooms (one a double treatment room) to experience the wonders of Temple Spa and the unique collection of facials/ scrubs and massages. We were delighted to discover Temple Spa and felt their ethos and products were a perfect fit with Smallshaw and complemented the vision for our Spa perfectly.
Enhancing our spa experience we have a gorgeously designed quiet room perfect for taking a step back from the outside world to retreat into a haven of relaxation. What an idyllic way to finish off the Spa Experience by unwinding in here perhaps even with a glass of Prosecco.
An exquisite nail room for manciures/ pedicures and Shellac completes our exciting new addition to Smallshaw.
