This is a lovely B&B, with excellent facilities, a terrific breakfast and a very friendly and helpful owner on hand to help you with any queries. There is a good local pub in the village, which serves great food too. Instead of driving through Somerset next trip, I shall certainly stay here and and spend more time in the area.... More

I booked this by chance, as we were looking for somewhere to stay as part of a short break in the West Country. South Petherton is located just off the A303, so is perfect if you are using this route to Devon or Cornwall, for an overnight stop. The Square House is a delightful property with a very interesting history.... More

Friendly and welcoming host. Cute dog. Comfortable bed in elegant period surroundings. Breakfast was a sociable experience all seated around a large oval table. Local produce cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed the selection of fresh fruit and my husband was most impressed with the poached eggs!

Situated in a lovely village, still with its own village life. The B & B is peaceful, very clean and has a lovely ambience. The proprietor has thought about everything including the tasteful decor and dietary needs.

I needed somewhere to stay for a couple of nights in South Petherton and chanced upon this truly delightful B&B. We were greeted by the charming owner Kathy and escorted to The Cottage which has two ensuite rooms upstairs and a lounge (with a sofa bed) and fully equipped kitchen and 3rd bathroom downstairs. It is clean, fresh and has... More

It is managed with love by Kathy; you will immediately feel welcome guests in this very nice B&B renovated last winter. Kathy does everything to make guests feel at ease; you will sleep in comfortable rooms decorated... More

Roomy large house near centre of a quiet but pretty village. The host was charming and most welcoming. The room was adequate size-wise and had a great en-suite bathroom with powerful shower and welcome bath. A quiet and uninterrupted sleep in a sleepy village. Breakfast was great and fresh.
