History to the present day

From the magnificent Spa city of Bath to the medieval market town of Castle Combe, this is an excellent location from which to explore the heritage of the ceremonial county of Wiltshire.

Food and Drinks

Breakfast is served in our recently completed dining room and we try to obtain as many of our ingredients as possible from local and organic sources. A vegetarian option is available and any other dietary needs can be catered for with prior notice.

You can help yourself from the buffet of fresh fruit and a variety of cereals then enjoy a Continental or Full English breakfast or, as an alternative, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.

We do not serve lunch or dinner but the local pub, the Northey, is five minutes walk away and serves lunch each day and dinner on weekday and Saturday evenings. In addition there are several local pubs a short drive away that serve meals.

As we don't have a licence we cannot serve you with alcoholic drinks, but guests are welcome to bring their own and we can supply glasses and ice.

Grounds and gardens

Guests have free use of the gardens with country views across the valley. There are several places to sit, the sunny south facing patio, the shady gazebo with views across the valley or, in the evening sun, on the small west facing terrace.

Other facilities

The guests' sitting room has satellite television and log fires in the winter.

If you would like tea or coffee on arrival or before you leave, then in winter we can arrange this in the lounge in front of a real log fire, or in summer outside in the garden.

Free WiFi is available throughout the property.

White Smocks is a gem in the Bath area (but you need a car to get there). It was a lovely English B&B, we just adored our rooms, the house, the dinning area, we just couldn't stop taking pictures. The hosts were nice and we had a lovely time. Would definitely stay there longer if we know how cute it would be.

The facilities were fabulous and Angela and Paul were so welcoming. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Great location.
