Fosse Farmhouse was built in 1750 of Random Cotswold stone under a clay tiled roof. Located in the heart of the Beaufort hunt on the Roman Fosseway in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Recently, it has been the subject of extensive restoration and renovation. Original fittings complement the French decorative antique furniture, and pretty English chintzes throughout, thereby creating a thoroughly individual country house retreat.

The interiors of the house, and the work of the imaginative owner and Chef Caron Cooper have been aclaimed in several media publications this year, including 25 Beautiful Homes and The Independent B&B Guide.

Delicious home cooked dinners using local seasonal ingredients are available by advance reservation (24 hours) and wonderful clotted cream teas are served throughout the summer months in the farmhouse orchard garden. Castle Combe - the most beautiful Cotswold village is just 20 minutes walk from our door, and Bath city centre is 30 minutes by car.

I am only two miles from the Badminton Horse Trials and therefore the closest of any of the visit Bath accommodation.
