We stayed there for two nights at this beautifully kept house. From the moment we arrived Chris and Maggie were delightful and made us feel like family rather than guests. Our room was large, with a lovely en-suite bathroom (with roll top bath) and both immaculately kept, as indeed is the rest of the house. Breakfasts are to die for... More

Genial hosts, really nice people that treated us as friends .This is 6 Star rating in a magnificent location and with luxury accommodation. Michelin star type dinner,our own wine, and a swim in the morning before a breakfast spread that left us wanting for nothing!

We have just, reluctantly, spent one night with Chris and Maggie at The Old Vicarage. Reluctantly, because we would have loved to spend much more time with them in their wonderful B&B. We were welcomed as if we were old friends, offered tea and the most gorgeous cakes on arrival, and spent far to short a time chatting with our... More

Without doubt this B&B has to be one of the best in the UK for its location, quality, service AND food. The very peaceful surroundings and gardens make it a very relaxing place to unwind a bit during traveling over several weeks. The town of Castle Cary, only walking distance away, is a lovely place to visit. The rooms are... More

To say we enjoyed our stay would be a huge understatement, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel like old friends, the property and grounds are stunning, immaculately maintained, spotlessly clean and the whole place just oozes with charm and class as do the owners Chris and Maggie. The food was amazing, from the welcoming cakes and... More

I am only motivated to review when something is either very bad or very good and this lovely place is definitely in the very very good category. It is set in a very peaceful location, the gardens are well set out, am just sorry I missed out on using the pool. The 2 storey conservatory is great to sit in... More

Wonderful birthday treat at this luxurious B&B in Somerset, Chris and Maggie Knight were perfect hosts and the food was first class. We were welcomed with tea and delicious cake in the lounge overlooking lovely gardens. We stayed in the four poster room "silk room" and had 4 course (and 5*! )dinner. We had the full English breakfast (including haggis!)... More

Stunning home and quintessential English hospitality. Maggie and Chris Knight were the perfect hosts. Could not have been made to feel more welcome. The three-course dinner the single evening we stayed here was world class. We could have stayed here three days if time had permitted. Lovely village of Castle Cary a five minute walk from the property. Cannot say... More
