We've travelled far and wide and this is better than some 5* hotels. They have succeeded in attention to detail, service, cleanliness, and excellent breakfasts. Wonderful mattress - good nights sleep.

Nothing was too much trouble for Pete and Sue. We arrived early to change for a wedding and were greeted with a ice cold drink. It is even better than the photos on the website. We were treated to breakfast in the garden on our second day. It is as good, if not better that some five star hotels we... More

Where do we start! An excellent host, nothing is too much trouble for Pete. Tea on arrival in the garden opposite the B&B a lovely way to start the stay overlooking the pond. Everything about the accommodation was first class, the place is spotless and a comfy night's sleep in the tranquility of the countryside. Good recommendation of a local,... More

We have just returned from a brief but wonderful stay at Hunters Cottage with Pete and Sue. If I could score them higher, I would. From the superb decor and sheer luxury to the wonderful hospitality we received, nothing could be improved. This is how all b & b's should be run.

Hi Sue and the one with special powers! How wonderful to receive such an accolade from you. I only wish we could have some control over the weather and then we could have enjoyed the company of both of you for another night. Thank you also for writing a comment on Facebook.

One of the best B&B's we've ever stayed in. Everything is immaculate, comfortable and well thought out. The continental breakfasts served in our private garden (the weather was fabulous!) were 5 star hotel standard and our hosts were always helpful, convivial and generous. Great value too

We happened upon Hunter's Lodge by accident but what a lucky accident it turned out to be. The cottage is set in lovely countryside near Ilminster and is very easy to find. We arrived in glorious sunshine to be greeted by Sue who showed us to our room. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the room, to say... More
