“Not quite feeling the love of Taylard that others had.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Booked here on the basis of excellent trip Advisor reviews.

Didnt quite live upto expectations.

Wasnt as pleasantly rural as I had expected. Parking was OK at the front of the house. Big gravel driveway.

We werent able to use the sitting room downstairs as family of the owners were staying and it was being used, and they were also hosting a dinner party, but i didnt know about this in advance. Dinner party guests also left quite late!!

No tea or coffee making facilities in the room - i hated this, like to have a cup of tea when i wake up!. Room was a bit cool and looked like it had got stuck in the 1980's. Very eclectic decoration and furnishings. Some people might find this charming but sorry, i didn't. Just a bit of a mish mash of stuff i thought.

Bed was enormous though and comfortable - best feature of room.

Bedroom TV was tiny and really poor signal, kept freezing.. some channels unwatchable.

En suite door handle was very loose, worried that it might come off and shower had very poor pressure. Internet was OK, but we had BT wifi internet access through BT wifi, unsure how other people might access the internet. No local information in the room.

Breakfast was OK, cooked to order, nice thick bacon, tasty marmalade. Yes, lovely friendly dog but shouldnt have been allowed in breakfast room while we were still eating.

Would i stay again? Hmmm, no, not for me.

A fantastic return to Taylard House. We stayed for 1 night with a group of friends. Sue was very happy for us to have a drinks reception before we went out for the evening. The Cab to and from our friends house was supplied by Sue's Husband.

The B&B was spotless and we had a super full english breakfast.

Taylard is UK B&B at it's very best.

With seasonal best wishes.

Wonderful overnight stay at a gorgeous, bed and breakfast. The hosts couldn't have been more accommodating, the dog more friendly or the breakfast better cooked, and the beds / linen / bathroom were first rate. A taxi service is also provided upon request - which is a big plus as taxis are hard to find! highly recommend.

I have just returned from staying at Taylard House for 2 nights with my mother staying in their twin room.

Its a lovely location, a beautiful building and next door to a stunning church and a real delight to hear the bells ringing on Sunday morning. The grounds of Taylard House are very well maintained and I imagine very pleasurable to sit in if the weather is favourable. The house itself is large and exactly what you expect from the pictures. There are lovely homely touches for example to the bathroom (toiletries/flannels etc) that make you feel a welcome guest in an (unintusive) family home. Oh, and I must mention, 100% value for money.....and a very adorable dog!

I hope to return. Also I must say this is someone that lone travellers would feel suitably comfortable.

Sue and Andy are such friendly and warm hosts at this charming bed and breakfast. It is a home away from home and you will be made very welcome. Breakfast was great, our room was very comfortable and clean. There is a lounge for guests which is a big plus. The grounds are beautiful. Highly recommended

Like most people we were attending a wedding at South Farm and our two night stay at Taylard House could not have been more perfect. Charming house and owners. Lovely bedrooms with everything we needed. Comfortable beds. Excellent evening meal and breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely touch to have a 'private' taxi. I have no hesitation in recommending the place.

Room Tip: Two rooms are en suite. The other twin and single share a bathroom.

Very friendly welcome and lovely atmosphere. We attended a wedding at South Farm and they arranged taxi to and from venue. Clean room, comfy bed and very good breakfast - bacon was just about the best we've had! Would not hesitate to recommend.
