“Quaint and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Enjoyed our stay here. It was clean, comfortable and convenient as we were visiting family in town. As we were booking from Australia it would have been easier if they had credit card facilities or even an email address to help with booking (I had to get up at 2am to phone to make a booking). But we were pleasantly surprised with the nice accomodation. Full breakfast was delicious and included.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Found this place on the internet and decided to go stay, room great and comfortable, clean and well decorated. Breakfast well there was certainly plenty. We didn't need lunch really but we stopped to eat more. If the weather had been good there are some great walks around the area.
overall I enjoyed the visit thank you

Room Tip: All the rooms appear good.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2011

We were only able to stay a couple of days and wished we could have stayed longer. We were greeted by the very friendly owners and shown to our en suite room, which was nicely decorated with a cottage feel to it, and spotlessly clean. We were able to sample the extensive cafe menu and very much enjoyed our meal. Refreshed by a good nights' sleep, we eagerly anticipated the breakfast, which was beautifully cooked. The local bacon and sausages were particularly delicious. The owners went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and well fed.

Hemyock is an ideal base for exploring the Blackdown Hills and we made the most of our time by going for long walks.

We had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend Brook House

I stayed at the Brook House B&B in Hemyock a few weeks ago with my partner, and I will definitely go again. The staff are friendly, the bedrooms are comfy and clean. I really hate having greasy breakfasts and they seem to be really on top of them - prefectly cooked.
There is a cafe under the accomodation (also run by the owners) but it quite quiet and closes not too late, and the food was very good. Mostly fried things but a lot of healthy things, and good fr vegetarians - I had a bean casserole which was delicious. The pizzas looked amazing but we didn't have a chance to sample them. Or you can eat at the pub next door, the Catherine Wheel, which was busy but not intimidating - pool table in the front bar, more relaxed atmosphere in the back.
The village itself has a castle at the top of the hill, and is right at the foot of the blackdown hills so loads of walks and pursuits are available - though a car helps, public transport a little limiting we noticed. Taunton, a lovely city is within 20 minutes. Look out for the stuff going on at the Brewhouse Theatre.
There's going to be a Nigel Mansell racing circuit in nearby Dunkerswell which some locals say might be noisy but it's about 5 miles away from Hemyock, and hasn't been built yet.
Altogether really good, a welcome break from London.
