PREVIOUS REVIEWS Guests have been enjoying Kingsmoor since October 2016 on other sites with the following reviews: Ellie - June 2017 We had a wonderful time, the house is much more impressive than the pictures show, and the pictures are brilliant! Rooms are spacious but cosy, beds are comfortable, water is hot and plentiful. There is everything in the house you could ask for and more, lots of gadgets and extras that make your stay even more special. Karen - May 2017 (Visiting Badminton Horse Trials) We had an absolutely superb time in this house! We were a large group travelling from within country as well as internationally for the weekend. Communication was excellent and the hosts were very accommodating. The house was lovely, clean and spacious equipped with everything we needed. We would have loved to stay longer if we could have. Highly recommended and think we will be back again next year! Katie - April 2017 We were a group of 5 couples and a baby and the house was a wonderful place for us to have a long weekend break together. It's spacious, comfortable, clean and has everything you would need to make it feel home from home. All of the bedrooms are good sized doubles, there are plenty of bathrooms to go round and it even has its own cinema room! I would highly recommend this house.

The little willage the house is in is close enough to Bath for trips and restaurant visits. Yet it feels totally rural for this location. There's a little post office and some good to very good restaurants. A bigger supermarket is only a short drive...More

Maja, her family and wider group were a pleasure to host. They fully respected the house and left everything in excellent order. We'd welcome them back any time and would happily recommend them to future hosts.
