Hubby and I stayed for two nights after Christmas, as a change from staying with his parents in nearby Chard. SO glad we found this place! The bed was beautifully comfy (led there listening to the rain pound against the windows and the wind howling in the storm; didn't want to leave it!) Our room was clean and plenty big... More

Shave Farm is wonderful - from the warm welcome from Kate (with tea and biscuits!) to the lovely decor and warm atmosphere. We loved the residents lounge with its stylish decor and roaring wood burning stove. Our room was superb - very comfortable with a huge bed, lovely bed linens and smart en-suite. Breakfast is delicious and Kate is attentive... More

James and Kate were the perfect hosts - helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The room we stayed in was modern and well fitted with... More

Lovely working farm with superb accommodation. Great cooked breakfasts and really friendly people. Couldn't ask for more and will certainly recommend to friends! The local pub (George inn) in Donyatt was also superb and only a short walk away...

Beautiful farm in a lovely area. We were given a lovely welcome. Bedroom and en-suite decorated beautifully. Very comfortable queen size bed. Spotlessly clean. Proper farmhouse breakfast. The hosts could not have done more to make our stay any more pleasant. Will be recommending this lovely bed & breakfast to friends & family.

Travelling down and stopped for a stay over on the way to Cornwall. The bedroom and breakfast was really great, felt the host was a bit scared to talk us until we paid to leave other than that it was FAB!
