It is always a pleasure to stay here and be well looked after. It is set in pleasant, spacious surrounding, with luxurious bathroom. Handy for touring Somerset or travelling into Devon. Highly recommend.

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. I arrived to be greeted with the offer of help with bags, then offered fresh coffee and a... More

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
