We stayed in the Coleridge room which was what can only be described as full of character, the room is well presented and extremely spacious with a massive comfortable bed, arm chair and sofa, table and chairs and a wonderful open fireplace. The house itself is beautiful as are the gardens even at this time of year. There is plenty... More

What a lovely review and we really appreciate you taking the time to do so. It was lovely having you stay and we are happy we met with your expectations although I don't agree the garden was looking that good at the moment Come back in May or June it will be worth the effort. Best wishes to you both... More

This title refers to the opener for breakfast which was of elite restaurant standard. We stayed in the Coleridge room which was beautiful and more than that a good memory to take away. We walked around the grounds and enjoyed the stroll despite the time of year and the weather. Highly recommendable. Our thanks to our hosts.

We needed self catering accommodation out of season - and was delighted to find Stable Cottage - part of a lovely set up run by Manor and Ann. They have a variety of self catering and b&b options. The house and grounds are lovely - our unit in the old stable was absolutly charming and very well appointed. Despite the... More

We are really delighted that you enjoyed yourselves in Stable Cottage. It is a lovely cosy cottage. We know you came to support your sister who was having treatment at the hospital but very pleased you got to enjoy a little of the countryside at the same time. Thank you for your generous comments and we hope you will return... More

We can recommend this B&B - it is a house full of character. The rooms are very spacious & beautifully decorated. The hosts are very welcoming and breakfast was excellent. We hope to stay again in summer months to enjoy the garden

awesome to step through the doorway into an old world room that was so comfortably furnished. Enjoyed being able to prepare my own meals too, for a longer stay. The hosts made me feel very much at home with friends, and invited me to share their gi-normous garden, a pleasure on a sunny English evening.

We stayed in the Coleridge Suite which is without doubt the largest B+B room we have ever seen. It is also extremely comfortable, well equipped, quiet and full of character. Our hosts made us feel very welcome both in the house, and in their beautiful and well cared for garden. The breakfast was delicious in every way, and their system... More

We had a very nice stay at The Old House B&B with our 4 month old son! The hosts were very nice and showed great hospitality. The breakfast was excellent and the room beautiful, big and comfortable. And a lovely garden! We can recommend this B&B to everyone!

Thank you so much Hilde for taking the time to write a review. We have very few Norwegians visiting this area so it was a real delight to meet such a friendly family . Delighted that your 4 month old baby had its first foreign visit to us.! It was lovely to meet you all. Manor and Ann More

I was delighted with the Old House - quite the best B and B I have stayed in. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the garden was a beautiful oasis and the breakfast absolutely delicious with fresh fruit salad and roasted vine tomatoes with your egg. I wanted to stay longer!

Stayed for two nights in the beautiful Coleridge suite for the start of our walk along the Coleridge Way, from Stowey to Porlock. Big comfortable bed, superb breakfasts, lovely ancient house with rambling gardens and gracious, attentive hosts Manor and Anne, made for a truly memorable stay. Outstanding and highly recommended.

Fantastic place to stay with the best hosts. Such an amazing house, steeped in history.
