We have stayed in this guest house seven or eight times. We often have occasion to visit this part of the West Country and when we do, it is always a relief to find that the Lynch has rooms available . The main house is an elegant 18th century building, with a fabulous staircase, and the breakfast room, hung with... More

There is so much to like about the Lynch that I felt I had to give it a 5 even though there were a few little niggles. The main house is beautiful and the epitome of an English Country house. The grounds are stunning and very well maintained. Breakfast in the Orangerie was delightful with great toast and tasty marmalade.... More

I stay here on a regular basis for work. Roy and his team offer a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated, the grounds are absolutely stunning. Breakfast is gorgeous and Barbara makes the best scrambled eggs!

A lovely house full of beautiful furniture. Perfect for playing at being in a Jane Austen novel. The elegant staircase is lit during the day by a glass pavilion in the roof - don't miss a trip up there for breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Delightful gardens with mature trees and topiary. Our room, Edington, was spacious and pretty... More

We stayed in the Kendal room it was a bit dark but still very nice. breakfast was very good especially the white pudding and everything was cooked to order. the other rooms had a whole wedding party in them but the Kendal room being the highest room you couldn't hear any noise. The grounds have ducks, black swans and lots... More

After reading all the lovely reviews we felt confident that this would be good - and it certainly was! Will just say that the towels are the thickest and softest, the beds are so comfy, the breakfast is exceptional in a second to none setting (squirrels, swans, birds in the lovely garden through huge orangery windows). We had a warm... More

Fantastic place to stay. Service is top notch and very friendly and the house is beautiful with bags of character. Breakfast in the orangery, watching the squirrels, swans and ducks is the best start to the day you can have. The breakfast was delicious as well, but I had to resist the temptation to have a full English every morning,... More

Visited for a short break staying in Somerton as a base for exploring a lovely part of the country. The house itself is pleasantly unexpected, lying just off a main road and unseen until you walk right around to the front entrance. It sits in lovely compact grounds with a large pond and lovely landscaping, and at breakfast in the... More

This property and buildings are a splendid place to spend some time in the West Country. The rooms are large, nice and clean. The Breakfast is FANTASTIC. The staff is very helpful. The gardens are lovely. Their is an older man who is associated with staff who seems to act like this is "his house" and therefore is generally cranky... More
