From our arrival, when Pete met us on the drive way, to us being waved off the following morning, all our expectations of the delightful cottage were met to a very high standard. The accomadation was beautiful, with the room being luxurious, as well as the bathroom. Pete and Sue were very welcoming and engaging. The nearby pub was sampled... More

Hello Sharon & Phil, First, thanks for spending time to write your lovely comments about us and we enjoyed your staying here and talking with you. Secondly, thanks for the reminder that there are lots of places of interest around here besides the coast being only 30-45 mins away -- we forget how convenient this area is for getting around...

What Makes The Best Bed & Breakfast In Somerset,Simply Peter & Sue Walker. They Have Got It 100% Right, Attention To Detail Is Second To None, A Warm Welcome Awaits You,Spotlessly Clean, Comfortable Bed. Breakfast Was Scrumptious With Sue's Homemade Jam. Without A doubt We Will Be Returning In The Near Future With Friends.

The high quality of the accommodation and the welcome afforded by Pete and Sue could not be bettered. An excellent breakfast and its being served in the sunshine by the garden pool where we could watch the swallows feeding was a bonus.

Steve and Sue have done a fantastic job of turning a character cottage into a luxury bed and breakfast with all features and fittings in bedroom and bathroom of the best quality. The overall impression is that the couple have impeccable taste in design. Only staying one night, we had the bedroom with very adjacent private bathroom/wet-room - fluffy dressing... More

Our third visit in two years. On our first we said the place was so good the challenge would be maintaining that level of quality. Delighted to say Pete & Sue have done just that. The best B&B we've stayed in for both accomodation and breakfast.

Well, this review helps us a great deal as it can only be returning guests who can say whether our standards are slipping or not. Phew, so pleased it's the latter! Thanks also for writing a second review - the time and thought is really appreciated. Thank you, Pete More
