A Grade 1 listed building which has been restored and upgraded by the current owners. Times past seep from every room with modern upgrades in terms of bathrooms. We walked in to a cosy sitting room with log burner ablaze, throwing out the heat! A delicious breakfast with home-made breads and marmalade. Perfect for venturing further into Somerset and close...

Checked into our B&B for the next 3 nights and had the most marvelous experience of finding a positively palatial size room with a huge beautiful bathroom in this lovely Grade 2 listed property. Fresh hot plunger of coffee served in the lounge by a nice warm fire while we brought our bags in and then had a wonderful chat...

We enjoyed having a large light and airy but cosy room. The bathroom was huge with a bath to match. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. They made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. And breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended.

Glad you liked it and thank you for the enthusiastic review. As you say the location is great for Bath Bristol and Wells and all that they offer. Apologies for the wildlife but I can assure you that area is cleaned daily because of the crumbs from the cereal. Will keep an eye on it though. All the best. Brian

What a relief to stay at a place like this, after all those so called boutique hotels, with their space age bathrooms, dimmers etc. A bit of a trip down memory lane it was, with the antique furniture, proper door handles and "on/off" switches that did not require a degree in astrophysics to operate! Retrofreaks of the world, unite to...

Glad you liked it. I'm a big fan of the scrambled egg too. The location is good which is nearly equidistant for the 3 historic cities of Bath Bristol and Wells. Hope that trip back to Australia was not too taxing. Look forward to seeing you again on your next trip. All the best. Brian
