Wanted a stop off on route to the SW. Found this place 10mins off the motorway and a world away from the chain hotels. Relaxed as soon as we walked through the door, fantastic food lovely room - mattresses on the soft side for us but a minor issue - and lovely gardens would highly recommend

We stayed at this lovely country surprise of a guest house for three nites while touring England and meeting an old friend in the Taunton area. We were greeted courteously & shown to the "fern" room on the 2nd floor. It was a delight. So much natural light flowed in thru large triple windows in both the bedroom and bathroom.... More

We stayed here whilst watching the last match of the season, Somerset vs Nottinghamshire. All the hotels in Taunton were fully booked and almost by chance I came across Farthings and what a find. We were overwhelmed and excited by the ambiance and friendly welcome. Or room ( a twin) was absolutely delightful. It was at the back of the... More

We stayed one night on our way from Yorkshire to Cornwall, having booked on the drive down. The 5 star rating reflects the price we paid as we felt it was very good value for money. We stayed in The Bay which is one of the larger double rooms and had the bathroom up a wooden staircase and a seating... More

We stayed a year ago but it was so memorable and special. This is an owner-operated country house with a lot of heart. Its a large country house + renovated barn on a good size property with ducks, dogs, and even a peacock which was all very charming. Gorgeous gardens. We stayed in a large suite that overlooked the backyard... More

We only stayed one night in this lovely country house. Staff were very helpful and rooms were attractively decorated and clean. Good bathrooms, great breakfast. Dinner in restaurant was ok, not great. A couple of menu misses.

Our 2nd visit to the restaurant, both times with a groupon deal, received as a present. Lovely quaint hotel, our meal was excellent for the price paid, will definitely be back to sample the full menu based on this experience. This is the sort of hotel we would choose to stay in if we didn't live so locally, will certainly... More

This hotel and its management make Fawlty Towers seem like The Ritz! We visited via Booking .com in June and were overcharged - when we pointed this out on leaving we were told that £16 would be refunded on our credit card - this never happened! We booked again for September via Booking .com and arranged with the hotel that... More

I firstly would like to apologise again for this unfortunate problem with regards to over booking the room. For the most part what you say in your review is correct but I feel you have been very misleading in how you have reported it, you did book a room in February and then cancelled it and rebooked for a better...

Needed somewhere close to M5 on our way to Cornwall. Nice location and pretty gardens. Offered upgrade by email but decided to stay with what we had and were very pleased - large room and windows you can open. Went down for dinner (we chose room only because it seemed to be cheaper than the package rate for Dinner B&B)... More

A beautiful hotel in lovely surroundings, exactly what was needed for some peace and quiet. The rooms are gorgeous. Our room didn't have a fridge but there was mini fridge on our landing and along with our cups, kettle, teapot etc we had a small jug so we could help ourselves to fresh milk whenever we wanted. (Far nicer than... More
