Excellent bed & breakfast. Set at the end of a long country lane in wonderful countryside. Very friendly and excellent breakfast, especially the fresh farm eggs. Large comfy rooms with good en-suite shower. Guest lounge with fire and flagstone floor.

We arrived for the night to break our trip back to London from Cornwall. We were shown to the family room which was quite a surprise - a great surprise. When you walked in the door you were in a lovely living area with a table set with the continental part of breakfast as well as tea, coffee and hot... More

Very welcoming host, and welcome tray of tea and biscuits beside a roaring fire when we arrived. Beautiful farmhouse (Somerset longhouse) in an authentic country setting, on a working farm. Comfy bed and excellent breakfast (with a great vegetarian option) 😄. Thank you!

Only there for one night but the accommodation was lovely - spacious & clean. Provisions generous & host kind. Close to A303 but no noticable noise from that or the farm animals, would definitely recommend.

Our time at Shave Farm was limited, so it is impossible to give a detailed review, but what we did see of the place led all four of us to feel very positive about it. The three rooms we had reserved were spotless. Splendid guest lounge. Facilities were excellent. The owners, very friendly and welcoming. Wifi a little slower than... More

We spent a couple of nights here whilst golfing in the southwest. It was an excellent choice. Kate was very welcoming, the room was spacious and clean, and the bed large and comfortable. But the breakfasts! They were terrific - cooked breakfasts using quality local products were tasty and the portions certainly didn't leave you feeling hungry. The mushrooms were... More

This is our third visit to this fantastic B&B. Kate and James are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the s/c apartment which is beautifully furnished with a livingroom on the ground floor and bedroom/bathroom on the first floor. Breakfast is delivered and is the best we have had in the West Country. Loads of... More
