Black Dog Farm
Around 13 miles south of Bath close to the village of Chapmanslade, Black Dog Farm B&B offers elegant accommodation 10 minutes’ drive from Longleat Safari Park. About 3 miles distance from Warminster, Westbury and Frome, this Grade II listed Georgian house serves a traditional full English breakfast and has free parking and WiFi. All rooms are spacious with tea and coffee facilities, a TV with DVD and a radio alarm clock. Each room is en-suite, with a shower and/or bath and hairdryer, and enjoys views of the garden.
A freshly cooked full English breakfast is prepared using produce from the area, including locally made honey and marmalade, home baked bread, and eggs from the Black Dog Farm hens.
A bridle path leads from the farm into Chapmanslade village and there are some lovely woodland walks, especially in bluebell time. Deer, badgers and other wildlife can be seen from the farm, and we encourage wild birds. We can recommend several good local pubs and restaurants for an evening meal.
It is a 10 minute drive to Longleat House, Safari Park and Center Parcs. Nearby are the market towns of Warminster, Westbury and Frome. Westbury offers a high speed mainline rail link to London Paddington and Warminster has rail links to Cardiff, Salisbury, Southampton and London Waterloo.
Close to the Somerset border, Black Dog Farm B&B is 30 minutes’ drive from the World Heritage Sites of Bath and Stonehenge, and the attractive cathedral cities of Salisbury and Wells. There are numerous National Trust and English Heritage properties within easy travelling distance.
We really enjoy the garden and are happy to share it with our Bed & Breakfast guests. It is nice to sit with a glass of wine in the evening on the bench under the cherry tree where our Bantams range free in the garden during the day and go to bed at sundown.
