Not able to give a proper review regarding rooms,food, etc as our booking has also been cancelled. Just wanted to let others know that I was told on Monday about the cancellation & today my refunded money is showing as a credit on my bank statement. Hopefully this will assure others that they will get their money back.

We were due to stay from June 4th - 9th but our booking was cancelled two weeks ago. We were told it was due to serious illness. My Brother in law paid the deposit so not sure if he has got it back yet but we managed to rebook at the Georgian House instead that has great reviews and looks... More

After a week my wife phone to be told they had forgotten but would do it straight away. To date we still... More

Lovely little B&B in Watchet across the road from the steam railway. Very clean and comfy and people were very friendly and helpful. Everything you need with plenty tea coffee sugar etc for making drinks in your room. I'd recommend this for a great base to travel/sightsee different places around the area. I will go and stay there again.

We spent 1 night at the Ivy House and had a really lovely stay. The room we were given was right at the top of the house with views of the steam railway line. The room itself was spacious and beautifully decorated. There was a sofa and TV in the room so felt like a small lounge area which was... More

On arrival Terry helped take the wife's heavy suitcase to our room, Room 5 (2nd floor) a very nice room clean... More

A first-class B&B in Watchet. This little gem of a find has everything you could wish for, very clean rooms, excellent breakfasts cooked before your very eyes, and a wonderful host in Lynda. Nothing was too much trouble, Lynda was able to recommend places to visit, places to dine out, even how to get the best out of the car... More
