3 girls and our dog, Freddie, stayed here for the weekend. Jane and Paul are both very friendly with lots of stories to tell and they welcomed us with tea and cake when we arrived! They had great knowledge of the area and were always willing to help us with any queries we had - (where to eat for dinner,... More

We have stayed at Arden Cottage before, to break a journey to Cornwall. This time we had a BIG wedding in the area so we availed ourselves of the B&B and also Jane and Paul's dog sitting service. As before, we enjoyed our stay, and the dogs had no complaints after their extra two night sojourn. Indeed, the dogs sent... More

It was more like friends returning and everyone settled back into the Arden Cottage relaxed atmosphere - even Meg and Ges your collies recognised where they were.

It's still a beautiful Spring morning here at Arden Cottage and to be greeted with such a kind review makes it even sunnier. We both thoroughly enjoyed chatting with you during your stay and hearing all about your day out travelling the first part of the Coleridge Way. We are happy to read that you felt welcomed and relaxed here... More

Our third visit to Arden Cottage. Very relaxing and enjoyable as always, with easy access to Exmoor, the Quantocks, the coast and the West Somerset Railway. Special thanks for showing us a nice local walk and use of your welding goggles for the solar eclipse. Accomodation very comfortable and excellent breakfasts to set us up for the day. Thank you...

It was good to see you both again as well as 'laid back' Dewi. We were very lucky to have the additional excitement of the Solar Eclipse during your stay and to enjoy the walk up onto the hills to get a better view from the welding goggles (not ideal we know, but better than nothing when used sensibly).

Spend most of my working week staying in B&B's, and few of them leave a great impression as this one did ! . Beautiful old building set in beautiful gardens , run by a really great couple. Really worth a visit guys so book a stay , you won't be disappointed.

We finally managed to return to Somerset 18 months after our first visit - and had an equally delightful stay. Jane and Paul welcomed us as old friends, and the dogs immediately remembered their previous happy holiday with much wagging of tails! Breakfast and accommodation excellent as before, weather very good, definitely a stress-free relaxing 3 night stay. We found... More

Jane and Paul gave me the most wonderful Christmas bolt hole, and are very special people. I've been to a number of dog friendly b and bs, many of which are in reality only 'dog tolerant'. At Arden Cottage, Betty was welcomed with treats and a chewy bone, personally shown the best local walks, given tasty scraps left over from... More
