“The Square House - a great place to stay! (Jan Legg)”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I recently stayed at the Square House for two nights. Kathy was very welcoming and friendly and I immediately felt at home. The house, built in the late 1800's, has been very nicely refurbished and the rooms are tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and there are cosy open fires in both the lounge and the dining room. Breakfast was lovely with cereal, fruit and 'full english' all on offer. Kathy was also very interesting to talk to with lots of good advice about the local area, which has much history to explore and several tourist attractions within easy reach. I really enjoyed my stay there and won't hesitate to go back. If you are looking for a good B& B this is it . . . look no further.

My sister and I spent a couple of nights here and it couldn't have been better. Kathy is friendly, welcoming and interesting to talk to. The house is wonderfully airy and tastefully decorated in a simple style. Breakfast was delicious - do try Kathy's homemade fruit compote, yummy! Beds are really comfortable. There is so much to see and explore in this area.

Kathy Russell will look after you in a refined and friendly manner, within first class environment
The standard of finishes are lovely with a feeling of visiting a friends home rather than a B&B, well worth a visit
The area is lovely, with The Field of Dreams within walking distance, a must when you stay
Will be booking again, and again

A great find. From the offer of Somerset brandy on arrival to the sort of breakfast that set us up for the day this proved to be the sort of B&B that I dream about. The pub we had our evening meal in that Kathy recommended (and helped guide us to) was pretty good too!

Having booked another B&B in the area we were redirected here due to a roof problem at the place originally booked.

The Square House is an elegant Georgian/Victorian property that has only been open a a B&B for a couple of months after a year of tasteful refurbishment; Kathy, the proprietor, clearly knows what she's doing. Great room and breakfast while Kathy was also very helpful about the local area.

Will be very happy to stay again some time, not something we normally think!

This charming B&B run by an equally charming lady is a great find. It is just off the A303 (the busiest route to the West Country) but far enough off to be very quiet.

It is half of a lovely old honey-coloured stone building on the edge of a very attractive, unspoilt village.

Kathy, who runs it, has wonderful taste - she can decorate our place whenever she likes! The rooms are lovely, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The windows are huge! The food is great!

A great place, strongly recommended - will definitely come again!

We were introduced to this B&B as we were looking for somewhere to stay for a local wedding. Kathy allowed us to check in early and showed us our beautiful room. It was beautifully decorated and the teas and fresh coffee were a lovely addition. Breakfast was fantastic, all organic foods and a wonderful selections of cereals, croissant and a full English. Kathy was wonderfyul and was always on hand to help out. The only sad thing was that we could only stay one night.
