Katie is the friendliest host of this very comfortable B&B set in a beautiful rural landscape.So peaceful ! Katie cooks an excellent breakfast and her experience in the hotel industry shines through in the extra services she provides, such as the in room tea/coffee making facilities backed up with a jug of fresh milk left near your door each morning...

Our 5 night visit to Pound Farm was a great pleasure. From arrival to departure, Katie & James made us feel most welcome with their farm hospitality. The room, breakfasts (open fire), & local advice of the area was of a high standard. They made our visit easy & relaxed & most enjoyable during our stay.

Pound Farm in Bishops Lydeard is run by James and Katie Hawthorne, quite the lovliest people I have met. I stayed there for (sadly) just the one night on my charity walk from John O'Groats to Lands End. The welcome (with splendid home made cake and tea!) was as good as you would find anywhere, and Katie is a wonderful... More

As one of the original guests to stay when Katie first opened up this little gem of a B&B we can honestly say it is no surprise that this place is getting rave reviews. We have returned year after year. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. Words alone cannot describe the breakfast, most if not all of the... More

What can I say. What an absolutely perfect B&B. Greeted warmly with a pot of tea and home made cake in the sitting room with and open fire. Views out over the farm where sheep are grazing and in the distance the beautiful church of bishops lydeard. Boys playing cricket in the front garden enjoying the fresh air... Can I... More

We booked this B&B with short notice, but Kate was very accommodating and a great host. The entire B&B was spotless offering great views and comfortable surroundings. The rooms were very bright and well presented using some of the original features. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice to have the option of a bath or shower in... More

Just stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 4 yr old boy. We were received with a warm and friendly welcome, including tea and delicious homemade chocolate cake! We had a lovely spacious bedroom with comfortable beds and everything was spotlessly clean. Delicious breakfast with homemade bread and preserves. Peaceful location and perfect for the West Somerset Steam... More
