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. Anne & Manor are the most friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts money can buy, doing the most to make you feel at home. Take up their recommendations to local eateries, we'll worth it. They'll even book your reservation while you go out and enjoy the... More

Stayed in the Coleridge suite in The Old House at the start of our walking holiday last week.

We stopped in the Coleridge room and were amazed at this beautiful and spacious room. We were so inspired by the history of this house and that Coleridge stayed in this room to write.

Stayed in Keepers Quarters (self-catering) for a week from 21.06.14. Wonderful accommodation and Manor and Ann are such lovely people. We were warmly welcomed and they went out of their way to make sure our stay was really enjoyable. We do hope we can make it back there again sometime as we had such a nice week.
