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.

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.

Our family of 5 stayed at the Square House and my cousin's family stayed in the barn annex. We all agreed that the guest house was first class. Kathy is very friendly and nothing is too much hassle for her. The guest house is set in South Petherton which is a great village with friendly people.

South Petherton is a picturesque village and the Square house is a beautiful property. Our stay was very comfortable, everything was provided to enable this, even local brandy to enjoy before bed! Everything was very clean and in good working order. Would have liked larger bed and thinner duvets, but that is personal preference. Tea(many types), coffee, hot chocolate, fresh... More

Lovely house, big comfortable room, fabulous breakfast! We wish we could have stayed longer but just had one night there. Kathy is very friendly and welcoming, we'd recommend the Square House for a short or longer stay.
