My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during the Easter break and had a wonderful time. The reason I booked was the proximity to West Bay where 'Broadchurch' is filmed. Chard is about 30 mins away in the car. We had a lovely warm welcome from Trudy who was genuinly interested in our visit. She is very knowledgeable... More

Being quite fussy on comfort, quiet & cleanliness, we have tended to stick to a less personal but bigger hotel chain! But on this occasion it was not an option and thank goodness, because our visit to this lovely guest house perfectly hosted by Trudy & David was wonderfully warm and welcoming, it was very clean & homely, tastefully decorated...

Lovely welcome, the room was well decorated and comfortable. David was very hospitable with nothing being too much trouble. Rooms were bright and warm with an amazing breakfast that couldn't be faulted.

I stayed just one night in a double en-suite (for one) on the third floor. This guest house is in a very quiet, convenient location, set back from the High Street up a short lane with good on site parking. It provides therefore easy access to the town. Trudy and David are excellent hosts. I had a warm, friendly welcome,... More

Trudy and David are fantastic hosts for their charming little guest house. It really is a home away from home. The rooms are comfy beds, hot shower and good WiFi, everything I need when working away. Easily the best part of the stay though is the cooked breakfast, best I've ever had in any hotel! The Watermead was a great... More

I was booked on a 5 week residential course in Chard and the course providers booked me into the Watermead for the duration....and I'm glad they did. With it's own large private car park and easy access to Chard High Street it is ideally situated for anyone wishing to stay. Trudy and David cannot do enough for you and genuinely... More

The welcome from the owner, David was wonderful... But the place didn't live up to its 'Award' or it's good reviews, at all..... The room was OK....Rather dated with a shower that didn't produce warm water..The room, bathroom and sheets were lovely and clean...The walls were decorated in painted over 1960s wall paper - and Wood chip which looked very...

We arrived without a booking, and they were able to accommodate our requirements. They were very welcoming and helpful for directions for an evening meal. We slept well, rooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast was very yummy, only problem was breakfast felt rushed as items were tided away really quickly and without out asking if we were finished.

..imagine you go to visit a castle or a royal mansion and you are actually invited to stay there over night! And imagine that you have wi-fi internet, heating, breakfast and a warm welcome. You don't have to keep dreaming, just book a room at Watermead. I'll be going there again, soon, with my husband. I can't wait! Can't be... More
