This hotel has plenty of charm. Warm welcome upon arrival, stayed in one of the superior rooms at the rear of the hotel. Decorated to a high standard with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Hotel very clean and maintained to a high standard. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Lovely garden with the benefit of off street parking. Well worth... More

Had a very comfortable one night stay in a twin room. Very nice room with a large bathroom with soft towels & complimentary toiletries which was a nice touch. This is a very well kept B&B with lovely homely touches & is spotlessly clean. It is obviously well loved. Breakfast was very tasty & we had great service where nothing... More

This is a lovely place to stay. There was a friendly welcome, the house is really well kept and decorated beautifully. The garden is a nice bonus tucked away at the side. My room and all public areas were spotless. Breakfast was really tasty and fresh with a good choice. Honestly couldn't fault it. Thank you.

We stayed one night here with friends during a short break. The rooms are lovely, spacious, with a nice mix of old and new decor. Breakfast was excellent, and the owner was very welcoming. Also, important to us was good off-street parking which there was plenty off. A+ overall.

This was our second stay here and it was every bit as good as the first. Lovely room with quality furnishings and bedding. Room has great views and lovely big bathroom. Our son came too this time and was equally impressed. Much nicer than staying in a chain hotel. It has a real English feel to it with pretty gardens... More

Stayed for one night on 29th May. Very friendly proprietor welcomed us and even recommended a local pub just around the corner (which serves an excellent Portugese lager). There's plenty of parking and the surrounding area is picturesque and quiet. Our deluxe room was outstanding, very clean and well-appointed although my partner's iPhone couldn't detect the free wireless network, maybe... More

Four friends from Scotland, stayed for one night after attending a music festival in Minehead. Everything was perfect. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly, and the rooms were second to none. First class. Would definitely stay here again. Only gripe was that we were off too early to eat breakfast, which if it's of the standard of... More

For a birthday treat we went along to the tea parlour and what a treat it was. An exquisite range of finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream and a delicious cake to follow. One of the owners, Frank was charming and made us welcome as we arrived. We were shown into the parlour, although we could have had... More
