We landed on our feet here - we tried to book in to a Travelodge, late afternoon, but they were full, so sent us here. What a contrast - a beautiful, tranquil location with gorgeous grounds and views. Our hosts were so welcoming that they came to escort us to the house from Wiveliscombe! Great room and good night's sleep... More

I stayed here on business. I stayed in a double ensuite bedroom which was charming. Good shower. Furniture is very traditional and comfortable. The house is secluded, but there are some good pubs nearby which do good food. Margaret is a very good host, and her food is lovely. She was making strawberry jam when I arrived so the house...

Quintessentially English, utterly Somerset B&B - a special and memorable place to stay… so good, I returned for a second stay the week after the first! In a quiet, pretty, rural location, set in the hills above Wiveliscombe, High Orchard casts a spell – the welcome, open-heartedness of Margaret and John; a charming and characterful farmhouse and gardens; spotless, comfortable...

Margaret and John run this peaceful B+B in the lovely countryside in somerset. Excellent food, excellent room with a king size bed. We have stayed here 3 times and always come away relaxed. There are plenty of local footpaths where you can spot deer. We will always stay here if they have room.

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents who have just returned from staying at this B & B Margaret is a very welcoming host for whom nothing is too much trouble.

I should have written about this wonderful place a while ago but have been distracted. Anyway, Margaret and John runa beautiful establishment in the gorgeous unspoilt part of West Somerset near Wiveliscombe. We stayed here twice and they unstintingly made our stay a delight. The room was spacious, really clean and relaxing looking over the green landscape. The bathroom was... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for a night in July. Margaret made us feel immediately welcome. Our room was large, clean and comfortable, and all at a reasonable price. Breakfast was superb - the bacon and sausages wholesomely home-made and scrambled eggs divine (made my fry-up seem almost healthy!). The only negative is that it is located 1.5miles from... More

We literally rang an hour outside of Taunton and asked if there was a room just for the one night. Despite this we were made to feel very welcome, the kettle was on as soon as we arrived and Margaret even apologised for not having a cake in! The room was very clean with fantastic views, the bed a welcome... More
