We stayed for three nights in the main house. A wonderful place to stay. Quiet location within 10 mins walking distance into Somerton. Fabulous views over the gardens and countryside. Very very comfortable bed and nice room. The inside of the house is steeped in history. Smashing owners who got up early to get us breakfast three days on the... More

We decided last minute that we really did'nt want to drive back to Dorset from Glastonbury Carnival, so had a look two weeks before hand to stay somewhere close by. We are really glad we did this is a lovely place and the owner was just brilliant and was so helpful. It is a little off the main road but... More

We stayed at Somerton Court Country House for our anniversary. We were very surprised to find such a beautiful house on our doorstep. Due to a booking error, the owners were not expecting us, however they couldn't have been more welcoming and the place was spotless. Thank you very much for a great stay in your lovely home.

Stayed one night in this B and B and only after checking in did I have a quick look at other Trip Advisor comments. Yes, there are baby swallows nesting in the entrance but I loved the fact that no one had moved them. Slightly hard to find but on telephoning, the owners patiently gave me perfect directions. There was... More

The property was a little less pleasing than we had hoped. It took us a while to find it and we had to ask in town as the actual address wasn't clear to us. The directions could have been more specific. We waited a while before our host arrived. The property itself is imposing in its park-like location and attractive... More

The house has a magnificent facade and is well located in large rolling grounds. The exterior is dated in the 1600's. The interior front hall is filled floor to ceiling with stuffed birds in glass case tableaux and in pairs and singles. Dozens of birds. Upon arrival, our host, was distant and when we asked a question about the house... More

A large historic home on a big estate. We booked late for one night. Arrived after 5pm. The home does not serve dinner; so we headed into Somerton and found the Market Bar and Bistro, a wonderful choice. The owners were not really in evidence much after we checkin in. Must be a matter of personal style -- we had... More

We self-catered in the Coach House, booked through Cottages4you. We were only there for a weekend but had a great time. This is a very recent conversion and all the equipment is new, with many little extras like a complimentary bottle of local cider, biscuits and mints. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms quite luxurious. Excellent wifi reception.... More

Beware… If you stay here you will be treated like you are imposing in their house. Owners are not polite and you will get the impression that they want your money but not you. Breakfast was about the only good thing.

It was with some trepidation that we arrived at the bed and breakfast having booked it for a Saturday night stay without reading the Trip Advisor reviews first. My wife and I stayed in Room 2 and our co traveller in a single room. Room 2 was very good, comfortable and with a well appointed fully tiled bathroom. The other... More
