Converted cottages + a shepherds hut create quality 4 star accommodation near Bath. Sleeping 2-4 in each cottage.


Welcome to Withy Mills Farm, nestling in the folds of the Cam Valley. Enjoy a relaxing holiday experience in this stunning location; 4 unusual cottages, sympathetically restored from stone barns provide wonderful accommodation for 21st-century living. All the comforts of 4-star properties including whirlpool baths, underfloor heating, WiFi access, king-sized beds and wood-burning fires. Each garden has a wooden table and chairs. There's also a shepherd's hut for 2 extra guests.

FOR GROUPS - Please note that if booking all the accommodation there is no central communal area inside to have a meal together.

Just 7 miles from Bath and 12 from Bristol, the location is great for exploring.

Whippletree Cottage sleeps 4. Raw brickwork, green oak timbers, and wooden stairs leading to a double bedroom on a mezzanine floor into the roof with views across the Mendip Hills. Downstairs provides a second bedroom with twin beds, a fully equipped kitchen and open-plan seating and dining areas.

Wharfingers Cottage was originally a milking parlour and now provides accommodation for 2 on one floor with one internal step. There is a well-equipped kitchen and living area, spacious bathroom with corner whirlpool bath large enough for 2, and the bedroom with a king-sized bed, beams and view out over the Mendip Hills.

The Engine House was once the stables and has been converted to a cosy studio suitable for 2 with a garden to the rear of the property furnished with wood table and chairs. The kitchen/dining room is on the ground floor but is open above to the green oak rafters. A well-equipped kitchen and living room with two comfy settees and a wood-burning stove. Climb the cast iron spiral staircase to the hayloft with a super king sized bed.

Now the cowshed has been converted to a ground floor self-catering apartment for 2 guests called Barleycorn. It has an open-plan kitchen/living area with an oak table with 4 chairs, king sized bed in the bedroom and large bathroom with walk-in shower. There is WiFi and underfloor heating throughout.

The shepherd's hut has a large bed that can fold away to seating during the day. Although insulated there is no internal heating so it is only used in the warmer months, and in conjunction with one of the cottages so the guests have access to a kitchen and bathroom. It is fully wired with sockets, lights and fire alarm.

The Piggery houses the laundry facilities.

Plenty of wildlife and farm animals can be seen during your stay. As a working farm, dogs cannot visit but indoor pets may be possible.

Please specify the name of the property you are interested in when making an enquiry.

Groups of 12 are welcome in the four cottages and the shepherd's hut. There is only space for a group to eat together outside.

Weekly bookings run from Friday or Monday. Short breaks are also possible for a minimum of 3/4 nights (weekend or midweek).

Can I bring my dog?

Unfortunately dogs are not allwed to stay in the cottages at Withy Mills Farm

Can we see the animals on the farm?

Withy Mills Farm is a working dairy farm. During the winter months cattle are kept inside and you can walk down to see any in the sheds near the cottages. We are calving from September to November. From spring to late summer all the cows are out in the fields and less visible.

How near is the village to the cottages?

Timsbury is a one mile walk from the holiday cottages and has a Co-op, chemist, fish&chip shop, health food shop and cafe

How late can I check in?

We can arrange a late check in at any time by arrangement.

Are the cottages suitable for a group booking?

We welcome family groups who are meeting for an event such as a wedding in the locality. However, we would not recommend renting all the cottages for a celebration such as Christmas as none of the properties have enough space indoors for more than four people to sit in comfort or to eat together.
