“...and relax”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Offering stunning views of the Mendip hills, the warmest of welcomes from its hosts Helen & Devi, beautifully appointed bedrooms and a royal feast of a breakfast, Primrose House is a jewel of a B&B. If you want to work off breakfast then simply step outside to enjoy a beautiful country walk or if, like my husband, you are left feeling more guilty then you can run off the pounds in the private gym! If like me however you are simply looking to unwind then I urge you not to miss the opportunity of indulging in a relaxing massage. Qualified in a whole host of beauty and holistic therapies Helen will tailor a treatment to suit and I can highly recommend her as giving one of the best massages I have ever had, getting to every ache and pain and leaving me walking away feeling totally rejuvinated. Not to be missed !

This b&b is set in a beautiful location with gorgeous views, I visit Helen regularly for a deep tissue back neck and shoulder massage which I must say is amazing and as I'm 8 months pregnant she really works on the places I need it most and the treatment is never rushed I feel very welcome into her home and very relaxed when I leave. Defiantly worth a try no matter what treatment you are looking for.

Well, after reading the last review, I felt the need to review our experience! We booked Primrose House last weekend for a birthday treat and what a treat it was. Devi and Helen were the most welcoming of hosts with tea and cake on arrival! Our room was amazing (King Alfred), we felt at home straight away and spent some time just looking at the great views from our room. It was a miserable day and we decided to enjoy the comforts of the en-suite in a beautifully fitted out bathroom (with a separate bath and walk in shower) in a relaxing foam filled soak. Devi kindly offered us a lift into town and we enjoyed a super evening at Truffles restaurant in Bruton. It was so peaceful, we actually overslept, breakfast was amazing, fruits, yogurts, cereals and a full English, all freshly prepared from local suppliers ….splendid!

My partner and I went for a stroll around the house and the views get even better, followed by an excellent massage from Helen before we departed! Thank you so much for making us feel special, we will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the King Alfred room which was brilliant.

Primrose House is a really wonderful B&B. Since the minute we walked in we were made to feel so welcome and we knew straight away we were going to have a lovely stay. Nothing was too much trouble and in fact we were so tired from our day we brought food back rather than going out such was the atmosphere and warmth there.

The place was absolutely immaculate from top to bottom and Devi's breakfast was delicious. You feel really welcome at Primrose House, we had a fabulous time and will be going many more times I'm sure.

We stayed at Primrose House whilst in Bruton for a wedding. Other accommodation was all booked up and I was initially put out by the price of our room when booking. But, oh, what a surprise! We were welcomed warmly by Devi and offered a cup of tea/coffee on arrival and we had a good chat whilst waiting for friends to arrive. Our room was under the roof so I had low expectations but it was beautiful. Massive bed (on the firm side), beautifully appointed, everything you need there - tea/coffee, water, hair dryer, TV, fluffy robes and a lovely view over the hills. The bathroom was on the corridor, but again, beautifully appointed and our exclusive use so not a problem at all. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, all locally sourced food, expertly prepared. And we were even given a lift to the wedding venue, which was definitely above and beyond. Couldn't have asked for more. It was worth every penny.

From the moment we arrived we knew Primrose House would be special. Even though this was just as quick night away from the kids we were made to feel as if it were a special occasion. Devi and Helen are incredibly welcoming and hospitable, and nothing is too much trouble - for example Devi kindly gave us a lift down into Bruton that evening. The room (King Alfred's) is lovely - very comfortable and with all the facilities you need. Despite having eaten a big meal the night before (At the Chapel, Bruton) we couldn't resist the beautifully prepared and cooked breakfast. It was like being a house guest rather than a B&B - and all the more special for that! Will be back!

Room Tip: King Alfred was great - 4-poster bed and lovely bathroom - but they all look good on the website! Gr...

After having spent two glorious nights at The Primrose House, I can honestly say that our experience could not have been any better. Owners Devi and Helen are superb hosts. The home - new by UK standards - is beautiful inside and perfectly manicured outside. Breakfasts were delicious.

Sometimes when Trip Advisor reviews seem over-the-top in praise of a venue, one might wonder about their authenticity, but believe me when I say that everyone's correct. If you're looking for a flawless B 'n B experience, do consider Primrose House.
