VISITING BATH? STAY AT CORSTON FIELDS FARM!

Corston Fields Farmhouse is a 17th century farmhouse on a working arable farm. It‘s in rolling countryside just 5 miles from the centre of Bath and only 8 miles from Bristol; a lovely place to find countryside accommodation.

We hope this visit to our website will inspire you to choose Corston Fields as your accommodation destination. It's a distinctive place to stay and there's so much to do all the year round in the Bath area.

Near the farm there are Park & Ride car parks to avoid the stress of city parking, though apart from taxis, there is no public transport to the farm, so the use of a car is nearly essential.

YOUR HOSTS

Gerald & Ros Addicott run the farm and apart from Christmas and the New Year, we receive guests all year round. A sincere, country welcome awaits you at Corston Fields Farm.

EATING OUT

We can advise you where to eat locally when you arrive or alternatively, have a look at the Bath Restaurant Map On the map are Bath's best independent cafes, restaurants and bistros, places we can confidently recommend.

A hot tip is a restaurant in central Bath called Gascoyne Place They serve local, seasonal food and if you get the day right you get live jazz too. A local village pub not on the map but one that serves excellent food is The Compton Inn or a buzzy city pub on our side of Bath that's definitely worth a visit is The Hop Pole.

Especially on weekends, please do reserve in advance, these places are popular for a reason.

THE FARM TRAIL

For the exclusive use of our guests, we've created a 1.25 mile (2 km) loop walk that starts and finishes at the farmhouse. The trail meanders past our pond and around our fields. At it's highest point there's a bench to sit on with lovely views across the farm. Remember to bring rubber boots with you if it's likely to be wet.

 

This is a wide angled view from the highest point on the farm trail.  We've built a simple, rustic bench here so you can rest a while and enjoy the moment.

NO FOSSIL FUELS USED!

Flax from the farm’s linseed crop is used as fuel to provide all our hot water and central heating. We grow our own heating fuel and it's renewed every year. A boiler consumes one bale of flax per day to provide all the heat and hot water we need.
The boiler's stoked once a day and if you stay at Corston Fields and would like to see it, Gerald will jump at the chance to show it off, if however you are happy just to enjoy the warmth and comfort of it all – you'll know no difference from a 'normal' system.

First bale in!

ROYAL CONSERVATION AWARD

In October 2002, His Royal Highness Prince Charles presented Gerald and Ros with the highly prestigious Duke of Cornwall's Farm Habitat Scheme Gold Award. The Gold Award was granted for, ‘improving natural habitat by restoring hedgerows and providing field margins and wildlife corridors’ on Corston Fields Farm. Many rare plants and wild birds such as skylarks, linnet, grey partridge and sparrows are now flourishing on the farm where once they were nearly extinct.
