We've just returned from a couple of nights stay in Wells at this very peaceful B&B. We had booked one of the rooms in the garden. Pleasant room with crisp, cotton sheets and a handy kitchenette. The room itself was big enough to fit the baby's carry-cot and a spare mattress for his big sister. Despite the weather we could... More

Jayne is a really wonderful host and the accommodation perfect. The rooms are very welcoming and you will not want for anything at all. Jayne´s attention to detail is great abd there is plenty of tea, coffee and juice. A lovely touch was the little cookies and fresh fruit that were available. The breakfasts are wonderful and you can sit... More

I was a regular visitor to Ashford House last year and cannot praise Jayne's hospitality enough. The suites are beautifully kept and it always felt like a home away from home. The attention to detail is second to none and breakfast was always a pleasure. Jayne is very flexible and keen to meet her guests' individual needs. My dog was... More

My husband and I stayed at Ashford House (a return visit) for 4 nights in September. This time we had the Poppy Suite and the experience was just as good as the first time (in 2010). The breakfast provisions left each day by Jayne were very generous and we enjoyed the little extras such as the jar of biscuits and... More

I was in Wells visiting Wells Cathedral School and the school recommended Ashford House B&B. I was so pleased with their choice. This had to have been my best B&B experience I've had by a mile. Jayne was very welcoming and so helpful, giving me directions and restaurant recommendations in the town. I stayed in the Rose suite which was... More

We had a lovely time staying here for 2 nights while we visited wells. The room was immaculate, had every facility you could think of and was a very good size. The food left for us by Jayne and her family was lovely and more then enough. My only negative is, the walls are so thin you could hear everything... More

We recently stayed at Ashford House for the bank holiday weekend and it definitely deserves the good reviews it has received. Jayne and her family were very welcoming and the room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. There was a really good selection of food for the continental breakfast and Jayne also left fruit and cookies in the room. The... More

I had a great week here whilst spending a week singing at Wells Cathedral. Jabe was welcoming and friendly, the room was clean and pleasant and breakfast was great. The quiet surroundings were perfect. Would definitely recommend.

This was our first visit to the 'new' Ashford House. The rooms are separate from the main house and very nicely decorated. Spotlessly clean and roomy. The bathroom is compact but functional. Breakfast is pre ordered and eaten in your room. Jane, the owner, is vivacious, friendly and welcoming.

This was a real treat - as two older couples traveling together, we were delighted with the garden suites that gave us quiet surroundings, rooms big enough to sit in (with chairs we could use for evening reading -- a rare find in English B&Bs), lovely modern bathrooms with shower, and a compact mini-kitchen. Jayne was a wonderful host --... More
