Fantastic service, amazing breakfast and wonderful room. A real find and well worth a visit.fresh fruits, yogurts, local produce and delicious hot freshly cooked breakfast. We were so well cared for and felt very welcome. Lovely Archie the dog was a bonus too.

Perfect B&B in a pretty village - so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Kathy, the proprietress, is very pleasant and well organised. Also in residence is an excellent dog by the name of Archie who combines an agreeable nature with just the right amount of disobedience - he immediately identified me as a soft touch. The breakfast was... More

The Square House is a tremendous b&b delivering excellent standards in every department! The owner could not be more accommodating, with exceptionally friendly and professional service. The rooms are pristine and the breakfast first class. Very good value for money too.

The Square House offers all you might hope for from a B&B/guest house. A warm welcome, friendly hostess and quiet, immaculate and well appointed rooms. There are 3 bedrooms I think. My wife and I occupied the twin room for 4 nights. Comfy beds, a relaxing colour scheme, and we slept well. Breakfast was a superb affair. A marvellous selection... More

I stayed at The Square House for a spring weekend. The B & B is a short stroll to downtown South Petherton. It is also easy to take leisurely walks through the countryside and past farms to neighboring villages from there. The Square House has 3 spacious immaculate, light-filled bedrooms. Kathy Russell, proprietress, has thought of everything to make guests... More

We stayed at The Square House for two nights. We had a very warm welcome from Kathy and her friendly dog Archie. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a good choice for breakfast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals and a filling cooked breakfast. We would certainly return and stay again.

We had a very comfortable night's stay on Easter Sunday. We were able to leave our bags there mid-morning even though it was before checkin time, meaning we could then spend the whole day with friends locally and not worry about what time we were due back. Breakfast was fantastic, good quality sourced food and included home made fruit compots.... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Kathy and Archie (her dog) were wonderful hosts. On arrival we were shown both the guest lounge and the dining room, both of which have open fires. The lounge was very comfortable, and although we didn't make use of the open fire, it was there for us to use if we'd wanted it. The... More

Why would anyone want to spend more money to stay at a hotel when there are pearls like this B&B. Fantastic value for money for a double room with en suite bathroom, a sitting room with a real fire and an award winning breakfast. Kathy made us feel very welcome and explained where we could get a good local meal.... More
