We have been coming to Somerset regularly for the last 2 years to visit family, and have stayed in several places, and The Somerset Bed and Breakfast is by far the best B&B we have stayed in. The welcome we received from Pete and Sue when we arrived was 2nd to none. The cottage is lovely, they really take pride... More

Hello Sue, It was really lovely to meet and talk with both of you. We were so plased with your comments - it's a lovely feeling when someone appreciates how we run the B&B here. We hope we do see you again. Warmest wishes, Pete & Sue More

The hospitality offered by Pete and Sue is above and beyond anything we were expecting from this very reasonably priced B&B. The cottage is beautifully presented, very clean and is well situated for your stay in Somerset. We wanted to take advantage of the dark skies the rural area has to offer and asked Pete and Sue for their suggestions... More

Thanks so much for your wonderful review and we're really pleased you had a good time. We really admired your endurance going into the wilds in the middle of the night when the temperature was freezing. We were just glad we were wrapped up in bed! Our very best wishes, Pete & Sue More

It's difficult to find adequate superlatives to describe this hospitable haven right at the centre of Somerset's bird-watchers' paradise. Peter & Sue achieve excellence and distinction in all aspects, from their warm welcome to our reluctant farewell. Comfort, cleanliness, food & drink, even the view are all beyond 5-star. I've stayed in luxury hotels, guest houses and B&Bs all over... More

Don't drive through Somerset without stopping here - although you need to book first! Exceptional accommodation, food, service and friendliness. Way beyond expectations and beautifully presented in all aspects. Delightful breakfast tray served in room with lovely home-made produce. Will certainly use again!

Sue and Pete offer more than the best 5* hotel with great personal care and attention to detail. Breakfast is a feast of fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, fresh croissants, pains aux chocolat and eggs done as you would like. Any beverage you can name is available at all times in your own sitting room. Fresh flowers and candles make this... More

We had a wonderful five day stay. Pete and Sue were gracious and attentive hosts, going way out of their way to accommodate us. Breakfasts were delicious with attention to individual preferences. We had some marvelous dinners at the pubs just down the road. We wished that we could have stayed longer!

This was second visit, and since my first stay I have stayed at many more hotels, b&b's and guest houses and this remains the best. The quality of the accommodation is unsurpassed, the bathroom fantastic, the welcome superb and breakfast unbelievably good.

How many more "five-ball" reviews do these guys need? ;-) Pete and Sue are supremely hospitable in welcoming you into their immaculate home. Our room and the private bathroom (three steps across the hall, as good as en suite really) were quite stunning and it's obvious that they take pride in every aspect of the business. Top-notch breakfast was served... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Somerset B&B, a luxurious and peaceful retreat in the Somerset countryside. From the moment we booked we were made to feel extremely welcome. When we arrived, (earlier than we said) Sue offered to carry our bags from the car, showed us around and made us tea and biscuits. We stayed in the suite which... More
