Fosse Farmhouse wins B&B story of the year

Stay in Bath > News > News > Fosse Farmhouse wins B&B story of the year

Fosse Farmhouse, based in Nettleton Shrub, just outside of Bath has already made headlines and won awards after becoming the setting for one of Japan’s most famous animes, but now they have received another award after being honoured with the AA B&B Story of the Year Award.

Entrants for the eviivo B&B Story of the Year, presented by AA, all spill the beans on their business and how they came to be where they are now. The B&B with the best story is then picked by the judging panel.

Caron Cooper, the owner of Fosse Farmhouse was at the ceremony to receive her award.

Her story began in 1989 when she met Shozo and Yasuko Mitani, who wanted to create an English themed B&B in Japan, she invited them to tea at her farmhouse and from there, the rest, as they say, is history.

On their return to Japan, the Mitanis displayed photos of Fosse Farmhouse in their own B&B and regularly spoke about their experience there, leading Caron and her B&B becoming popular in Japan, the Mitanis guests were amazed by the décor and how quaint and charming Caron’s home was which led to Fosse Farmhouse winning the Best Tourist Accommodation award in the 1992 Britain Welcomes Japan campaign, as voted for by Japanese visitors.

While that is amazing enough as it is, Fosse Farmhouse is now famous among fans of Japanese anime, after Kiniro Mosiac, a popular manga, published in 2012. The story about a teenage girl called Alice is set at a home based on Fosse Farmhouse and Caron’s life there.It wasn’t long before the manga was adapted for television, quickly becoming one of the most popular anime shows in the world. Caron was approached by the production team who filmed the Kinmoza, the series,  on location at Fosse Farmhouse before converting it into an animation. The animation is so true to life that Fosse Farmhouse is instantly recognisable on screen and fans of the show now travel the globe to stay and explore the rooms that feature on Kinmoza.

I think we can all agree Caron’s story is certainly out of the ordinary! Well done Caron and here’s to more amazing successes for Fosse Farmhouse in the future.
