About Your Hosts

A warm welcome to Beeches Farmhouse:
a beautiful country sprawl offering convenient accommodation near Bath and Longleat!


We are Nigel and Pauline Stanley. Our experience in hospitality is matched by our passion for what we do. We've poured our love into Beeches Farmhouse, to create dog friendly holiday cottages and en suite rooms where guests can relax and make memories together.

I, Nigel, have managed resorts and hotels in many incredible places, including Jordan, Bahrain, Bermuda, Antigua and Kenya. While working at The James's Club in Antigua for Peter de Savary, I met Pauline an accomplished florist. Our children were raised in these countries where they enjoyed an idyllic upbringing. On our return to the UK, we fell in love with Bradford on Avon - it's a stunning part of West Wiltshire with charming villages, a strong community and a unique atmosphere.

When not helping guests, I like researching family history, walking our two energetic English Setters and keeping fit. Pauline enjoys fussing over our children and grandchildren, tending the garden and animals and singing in a local choir.

Our future plans for Beeches Farmhouse? We aim to develop more of the barns using eco-friendly methods so we can continue to offer unforgettable holiday experiences.
