We chose Old Church Farm for its proximity to Bristol, its 5 star food rating and its approach to CV19 safety. We were not disappointed and discovered it offers so much more!
Old Church Farm is a beautiful Tudor building, with many original features, which has been transformed into a luxurious B&B. On arrival our host Christopher explained their Covid precautions and after sanitising and signing in we were shown to our room.
We stayed in room 6, which is their smallest room, but was spacious and bright, with a large window, a huge fireplace, a big comfy bed and lots of antique furniture. The en-suite had a very large shower enclosure with a great shower – no antique plumbing issues here! The room had an Alexa so we could choose music and turn off the lights just by asking – very Covid friendly. The only thing we missed was tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which had been removed as a Covid precaution.
The food cooked by Kate was fabulous. The evening three course menu offered a variety of choice, every dish sounding mouth-wateringly good. I couldn’t resist the cheese souffle on our first night, it was the best I’ve every had. So good, I had it again the second night. The food was cooked to perfection and accompanied by home grown veg. The dining room had a long table which enabled us to enjoy the company of the other guests whilst maintaining a safe social distance. Christopher introduced everyone at dinner and the conversation flowed.
The breakfast menu was extensive, and again delicious, Kate really is a superb cook, and was beautifully served in the breakfast room on stunning china.
