Great little B&B. Were able to find us 2 rooms at very short notice (20 minutes!) after some bad planning led to a very, very long drive! Rooms were clean and quiet, breakfast was excellent and we left very happy!

My first impression of the small double room was that it was a bit grotty. I think it was mainly due to a tired-looking bed spread. The sheets were fine, however, and actually the room was okay. My main problem was that the room looked out onto the pub garden and the adults and children in the garden were extremely... More

If you're stuck for a place to stay in Somerset, the Ilchester Arms is a must. It's a nice, clean, family run free-house which is expanding to bring in traditional games for the retired country gent to play whilst nursing a drop of the latest guest ale. The food for any meal there is exceptional for a pub. It can... More

The Room was spotless, the staff were both professional and friendly. Full English was included, we ate in the bistro Saturday evening, both meals were excellent, using local produce. Very quiet, which gave us a good nights sleep.

Excellent value for £80 for 2 incl breakfast; pleasant staff; excellent catering for gluten free diet requirement at dinner and breakfast. Easy parking Pleasant room overlooking village square. Usual room facilities including tea and coffee making. We had dinner in the courtyard cum garden so service was a bit slow as we were out of sight of staff!
