The Old Parish Hall was built circa 1850 and before its conversion to a dwelling in the mid 1980’s, this beautiful, detached property had many uses for the local community, including being a Temperance Hall. Many of the local people have stories to tell, from wedding receptions being held in the hall or gatherings to watch boxing matches. A lady said that she tap danced on the stage here which was at the opposite end to the fireplace and the original two stone steps leading up to the stage can be seen in the entrance hall, at the base of the staircase. Many of the original characterful features can still be found throughout the hall including the hall beams, stone steps and stone mullioned windows, making this a charming and perfect place for your holidays. For the darts enthusiasts the games room on the second floor has a professional PDS Diamond wire premium bristle dartboard, exclusively endorsed by the British Darts Organisation, Deluxe Classic cabinet including two sets of precision darts, oche line, checkout table and chalk. There is also an added benefit of a private hot tub, complete with a range of facilities including plug and play, LED waterline lighting and underwater light, American Balboa control system, 39 massage jets stainless steel, ozone generator, waterfall, waterproof speaker system, Ipod dock and headrests.

The Old Parish Hall is conveniently situated in the village of Farmborough, Bath, Somerset. The location is perfect for day trips into the World Heritage city to see the famous Roman Baths and Thermae Pump rooms and spa, as well as all many other attractions this wonderful city has to offer. The city of Wells is 14 miles away, famous for its cathedral and Bishops Palace and the mystical town of Glastonbury is just 18 miles. You can also reach Stonehenge, Longleat and Avebury all within an hours drive, and after a day out exploring the area, return to The Old Parish Hall and relax in the hot tub. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

    Our only criticism was that the surround of the hot tub was pretty muddy and nowhere to put your shoes/flip flops. Other than that the place was amazing. Very clean and tidy. Extremely comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing weekend. Will recommend.

    House very comfortable for 5 adults plus a child. Well decorated and clean. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Bedrooms very comfortable - great to have 2 en-suites, saved the queues in the morning. Games room ideal for children, snug for adults but we still managed a game or 2 of darts. Hot tub was clean and well maintained. Ideal location for Bath, Wells, Wookey Hole, Jacobs Ladder or even Weston Supermare. Local pub and community shop a short 10-15 walk away. Fully enjoyed our New Year week away with family.

    It’s a lovely building in a lovely village but it’s a shame it is located on the main road through the village. The traffic made it difficult to sleep as windows single glazed. Can imagine it’s lovely in the winter with the open fire but in the summer we had a real issue with flies as there was an awful lot in the house. The description of a “games room” was a little misleading as well. The hot tub was great but the roof was not weather proof and made it unusable when raining. We loved the towel service but the selection was not what we expected as there was not enough large towels and too many flannels. That said, Farmborough allowed us excellent access the Bath, Cheddar and the coast. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house

    Response on behalf of the owner; We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and would recommend our home, we try extremely hard to provide a welcoming comfortable property. We try and ensure you have everything you may need with nice little extras such as the Welcome Box with a few treats and essentials. The Old Parish Hall was built circa 1850, it is full of character that an old building should have. In keeping with this we decided we would retain the original stone mullioned leaded single glazed windows as we felt its a key feature of the building. There are double glazed windows in the property. For every person staying there is a flannel a hand towel and a bath towel, so in total 8 flannels 8 hand towels and 8 bath towels. We are very upset to hear of flies in our home, we have spoken to the cleaning team who were unaware of any issues, we believe doors and windows were left open. The games room has a professional dart board, multi games table and many board games and books. We have aerial photographs on the websites for guests at the time of booking of The Old Parish Hall to show the complete site of the property and there are also photographs showing all the rooms including the games room. We always say to our guests we are available for any questions or concerns, now we are aware of the issue with the hot tub roof we will address it.

    We were amazed about the wide range of toys the kids could play with. We all loved the hot tub. This made it a wonderful accommodation for everybody. The landlords were very friendly and helpful with all our questions. Thanks again for the fishing tips.

    Very nice overall but really need downstairs loo as it's a pain going up and down especially when using the hot tub

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback, we’re pleased you had a lovely time at The Old Parish Hall as we try to make it as homely and welcoming as we can. Our home was the former Parish Hall dating back to circa 1850, we have tried to retain a lot of its original features, including the steps to where the stage was, there are 3 toilets in the property but none downstairs. We have also tried to highlight the rural setting of the property with aerial photographs, because of the rural setting certain amenities may not be in walking distance. We do proudly have our Community Shop and 2 pubs/restaurants in walking distance.
