Justina is an excellent host who makes you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. The location is very good for exploring the many attractions in the area. The village itself is very historic and has two very interesting pubs, which are conveniently situated opposite the Plaine B&B. The locals are obviously respectful of others as there was no noise from people leaving the pubs and we stayed over a weekend.

Our stay was very nice. Michelle was a lovely host and looks after all your needs. We had one of the newly renovated rooms on the ground level. Massive bed and nice bathroom. Breakfast was included and was lovely to have a home cooked meal. We struggled to find online a nice hotel to stay in Bath and this is only 10mins away (if you use the back road). We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Michelle
