Lovely place in a lovely setting, was not sure if the GPS had got the route wrong as it is surrounded by newer houses on the approach which was bit disconcerting, but not disappointed at all. Room was excellent and hosts lovely.

Recently stayed here with a number of friends as we were watching our county cricket team, Lancashire play Somerset in Taunton. We stayed for 4 nights and all requested single rooms. A usual "ask" for us as we are all pensioners. The rooms were excellent, the breakfast very tasty and presented beautifully. Our hosts were very friendly as was Peppa... More

The friendly and efficient hosts have converted a charming and spacious old farmhouse into a comfortable bed and breakfast, with all modern conveniences (including swift wi-fi). Great care has been taken with the features: the bathtub in mine (Honeysuckle) had safety rails and a non-slippery base (great if you have balance issues). Classy toiletries. The breakfast was superb: homemade fruit... More

We stayed for one night only but definitely want to come back. We had a large family room with travel cot all set up for our baby. The room itself was easily accessible, and parking right next to the house. The house is amazing - part of it goes back to the 1600s. The bed was super comfy, the bathroom... More

Faultless in all respects. Nothing was too much trouble for the tireless and ever-cheerful host and hostess (including a flexible check-in policy, very helpful when needing to change into wedding rig after a long and very hot morning's drive). I can't recommend this establishment highly enough for both quality and value.

Arrived to find Karen waiting to welcome us. Lovely old farmhouse. Plenty of parking in the shade ( very important as very hot). We were 3 ladies all there to see Rod Stewart in concert at the Taunton cricket ground. We had a lovely room with seperate toilet & a jaccuzi bath with shower over. There was a king size... More

Went to Taunton for a wedding and picked the perfect home from home. It's about as far from a 'best western' as it's possible to get. Lovely comfortable place with really laid back and friendly owners......sorry about the iron guys!?

What a great surprise to find this B&B surrounded by newer houses. A place so old you would not believe. A well cared for family business. Our room was in the oldest part of the farm house and this is where you need to stay. Lovely timber beams. Our room was large and was great with every thing you would... More

We two just rolled up here to enquire about a room and bingo - the Orchard Room was available. We were a little surprised that Yallands "farmhouse" is in the suburbs of Taunton, but when it was built in the 17th century it probably wasn't! Once inside it is like walking back 400 years with dark oak beams and low... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owners Chris & Karen Ward look forward to welcoming you to Yallands Farmhouse - our delightful Grade II Listed building dating back over 400 years, which sat amidst acres of green fields for several centuries. The expansion of Taunton during the 1970's led to new housing being built on the former farmland. The farmhouse, with its secluded garden, small orchard, and stone barn was left intact. As a result, Yallands has become an unexpected 'oasis' of peace and tranquility within a modern corner of Somerset's county town. Yallands offers self-assessed 4 star accommodation in Taunton, Somerset. The house is situated 1 1/2 miles from Taunton town centre, on the north-western edge of the town, and is easily reached from the M5 motorway - junction 25 (4 miles), and junction 26 (6 miles). For those who are reliant on public transport a local bus, with a stop at the foot of the garden, provides a frequent daytime service to and from the town centre. The lovely town centre provides excellent shopping and county cricket, horse racing, golf, theatre and other leisure facilities are all available nearby. Taunton has a good selection of restaurants and wine bars to suit most tastes and the surrounding countryside offers many delightful pubs which serve excellent food. There is ample car parking space in the private grounds together with lockable cycle storage in the stables. Why not enjoy relaxing in our gardens in the summer or sitting in front of our open fire in those cold winter months? Yallands is open all year round and - whether you are a tourist or a business visitor - you can be assured of a warm welcome and our individual attention.Yallands is particularly convenient for Taunton School, The Somerset Heritage Centre & Nuffield Hospital. ... more   less
