Loved our few days spent in Gripp Barn. Every single element of the barn is quality, doubt you'll find better beds anywhere, lovely hot tub to relax in each night, and great location for exploring Bath. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The Barn was beautiful! Comfortable and spacious which was well equipped with everything that we needed. Location was excellent, only a short drive to the park and ride for the city centre.
