We had stayed in a lovely hotel for part of our break in Chard and the rest of it here. Why it is only three stars I do not know, I've stayed in four star B&Bs nowhere near as great as this place. Beautiful room with nice little touches, everything we needed and a lovely, tasty breakfast. Away from the... More

Stayed as a stop over en route to Cornwall. Owners very friendly, informative and accommodating. Lovely room, great breakfast and wifi that works. A good base for sightseeing will definitely be back for a longer stay.

A five star accommodation in England below 4 digit per night prices ? Et voilà! Very much alike the best (small) hotels in Germany, it is reasonably priced and perfectly done ... from the friendly welcome (like on the best hotels, just this time I believed it) to the full English breakfast! Good mattress, WLAN fast, shower nice'n'cozy (slim fit... More

I stayed at the guesthouse for more than 9 weeks. Trudy and Dave are two lovely people who try to make you feel as much comfortable as possible. The rooms have everything you need and the beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The breakfast is delicious and the atmosphere is not like a typical B&B... More

I stayed last Saturday 14th November, in the lovely quirky attic room. It was wonderful, the bed is the comfiest bed ever (as good as my own), the breakfast in the morning was the best ever, I stay in hotels a lot and this exceeded expectations in every way. If I am ever back to Chard this is where I... More

I think that previous reviews have used up all of the superlatives and with good reason. This place is everything a guest house should be whilst exhibiting none of the negative traits that are so common in this sort of accommodation. Splendidly clean, very comfortable, spacious guest lounge and ample parking. What more can you wish for?

Welcoming hosts, well appointed and comfortable rooms, great breakfasts, delightful Victorian character Villa. Highly recommended! Would have no hesitation in staying here again, particularly when it is not much more costly than staying in one of the national hotel chains that offer just the basics.

After finding this Guest House on trip advisor, and reading the good reviews, we decided to book up for an overnight stay whilst visiting Lyme Regis. A lot of the reviews we read stated how welcoming the owners David and Trudy were and we can completely agree. We were made to feel completely at home and Trudy recommended some lovley... More

I arrived in the area to start a new position, and was given the option of staying in a bed and breakfast or hotel of my choice, with the remit to move to any local area. After a couple of nights at the Watermead, with the excellent breakfasts and warm welcomes from David and Trudie, no decision was required as... More
