I loved this hotel - for so many reasons! Difficult to know where to start! Firstly the location is simply stunning - in a beautiful rural village with stunning views and set on a pretty farm. I stayed by myself and couldn't have had a warmer welcome. Having arrived two hours earlier than I had said, I waited at the... More

We stayed 3 nights in Feb and couldn't have chosen a better place. The room was beautiful and had great views across to the Mendips. The breakfast was delicious (try the eggs) and the hot stones massage was just what was needed after a full day walking. Will be coming back soon and bringing the bikes for more exploring!

Thank you, a very nice and welcoming stay. Nice atmosphere, Sam was very welcoming. Worth a visit if the rates are reasonable. Very cold in the family room - take plenty of warm clothes. Breakfast was a bit disappointing. Thank you

Thank you for your comments Paul. I am sorry you were disappointed with breakfast as it is something that we normally get rave reviews about and if we had known you were not happy we could have done something to rectify it for you. Similarly if you had said at the time you were not warm enough, we could have... More

We found Sam to be warm and welcoming, as perhaps you would expect. We needed to amend our booking prior to starting and found him very helpful. Our room (in the main house) had recently been decorated and showed signs of some unfinished touches - no lock to ensuite for example. The shower was not great but adequate, Hot water... More

Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have just replaced the impeller pump for the shower so that won't be an issue again and thank you for the suggestion, we will look into that. We do hope we will be able to welcome you back to the place to stay. More

We visited "the place to stay" for my 30th birthday, myself, husband and 16month old daughter. The room was clean, clutter free, comfortable and very cosy, just perfect. I was able to get milk for my daughters bed time drink and use the microwave, it felt very homely. The scenery was lovely. I liked how we was given a menu... More

Stayed for one night. Arrived about 6.30pm, Sam could not have been more helpfully. Lots of knowledge about area and places to eat. Room was amazing, though small put up bed slightly disappointing for our son. Room very large and hot!! No air con, but we just turned off rads and opened door for a while. Tea bar very well...

I took my boyfriend to the place to stay for his birthday and a trip to longleat, and before we had even left we had already decided we wanted to come back. A wonderful location, a beautiful quiet village with amazing views. The hotel itself was great, the beds were so comfy I didn't want to get up but as... More

I booked my first hot stone aromatherapy massage and facial which was achieved through the best of body oils from Decleor. Sarah, the massage therapist was a wonderful professional young lady who made me very welcome and at ease. She explained at every stage what she was going to do. The whole ambience of the building, massage room, the therapist... More

We came and stayed for two nights and we fell completely in love with the place. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in with big snuggly duvets and blankets. The bathroom was very large and had a shower and a nice bath in which I can personally vouch for. The bnb's surroundings were breath taking... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, particularly your comfy bed because our aim is to give the most restful and relaxing stay possible and we feel it starts with a lovely bed. What a shame it couldn't have been less wintery but we look forward to welcoming you back in the summer. More
