My wife & I stayed at Hartwood house with my sister, parents, and grandmother. We stay in b&b and hotels across the world. Hartwood House is most definitely the best b&b. David and Rosemary have not blurred the lines between being a hotel or a b&b. From the moment we arrived we felt as though we were very welcome guests... More

Hartwood House will live in my memory until my next visit, which I do hope will be soon. It is set in the most idyllic Somerset countryside and is just so restful, but yet with good, quick access to major roads. David and Rosemary are the most wonderful, caring hosts who are always pleased to stop and chat. Their local... More

We came to participate in the West Somerset Railway gala..The location was ideal as the preserved railway passed nearby and there was a local station in walking distance. Rosemary. and David were helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were tasty and adequate.The rooms were spotless and comfortable and the grounds ideal for roaming.We would highly recommend Hartwood House. .

What a revelation Hartwood House was, David and Rosemary could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The house is in beautiful surroundings and the rooms superb. What a treat to stay somewhere so warm and friendly. Can't wait to return.

Tranquil, relaxing, and in beautiful surroundings. Everything I was going to say has already been expressed so well by previous reviewers. If, after reading them, and Hartwood House's own website, you're thinking it's too good to be true, let me assure you - the reality is even better! David and Rosemary really are the perfect hosts, and after four nights... More

It's a wonderful country house in a very beautiful garden, in the most romantic countryside. We were given a very friendly welcome. The rooms were perfect and the breakfast was great, and we enjoyed a glass of wine with the hosts in the evening when the kids were in bed and chatted with them and the other guests, but it... More

My wife and I arrived to a beautifully presented B&B in the heart of the Somerset Countryside. There were candles aligning the driveway as a special welcome for our wedding night, showing that the owners were keen to make every effort that we had a wonderful first evening as a married couple. We then woke up to a stunning view... More
