“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This place is as close to heaven as you're likely to get. I stayed here with my wife, 4 year old son and 6 month old daughter. It was comfortable, clean and had all the comforts of home! Angela and Chris made sure we had bread, eggs, milk, butter as well as tea and coffee stuff waiting for us when we arrived. They were also on hand to greet us upon arrival and give us the low down on what's what. The grounds were breath taking, my son loved the cows in the nearby field. It is quiet and very relaxing. Anyone wanting to spend the day at Longleat Safari Park and House, I would recommend staying here for a few days, as it guarantees you an early start in the park and a lovely place to rest your weary bones after a long day! We will definitely be back and have recommended this to all our family and friends.

“Great location for a family break”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here with our three children and their families (16 of us) We rented all three lodges and had a great weekend. We all ate together outside the middle lodge. The grand children aged from 4 to 13 enjoyed playing in the extensive grounds.The properties were comfortable and the owners helpful. We will definitely be coming again.

“Great place to stay with a family”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Had a fab time......great open space for kids and adults! to play. Lodges were clean and light and perfect for a family of 5 plus extended family in other lodges.

Could be excellent...bolts on windows should be on a shed not a nice lodge, one of the windows in the lounge was so warped it did not close properly and in our en suite bathroom there had obviously been a roof leak. I am being fussy but as I say it could be excellent. WiFi did not work well which was great as the kids played outside instead of looking at screens !.

Would definitely recommend as a great place to stay.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay at By the Byre. We apologise for the fact there had been an obvious rain leak - we have resolved this. Hadn't really thought about the bolts - you do have a point, but hope they didn't detract from the loveliness of the properties. A guest did tell us about the door, in fact it was the mechanism preventing it from closing - all sorted now. Great to hear the children loved the country environment - wifi is not th strongest but it does work. Guests can alway use the house if wifi is needed. Hope to see you again.

“Beautiful, peacful, well maintained”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We rented two properties from Angela and Chris over the bank holiday weekend. They were very clean and well stocked with all we could need. By the Brye is perfectly positioned a short distance between Longleat and Bath. The whole area is so beautiful, we were spoilt with lovely views. The whole property felt safe and welcoming for the children, who loved the open space and the trees to climb. We are already planning our trip back next year.
