“montacute and slipper cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Montacute is an amazing old village and Slipper Cottage a quaint but lovely 300 yr old house, immaculately kept. You immediately feel at home here. Pat is a great historian and Sue a real good cook. Delightful place to stay, good value, lovely people. Easy parking, 3 pubs close by. My most enjoyable accommodation in England. Australians will find William Dampier's home village nearby (East Coker) where T S Eliot is buried.

My husband and I spent 3 excellent nights at Slipper Cottage. We had a double room overlooking the main street in Montacute - it was hot and we kept the window open but were not disturbed by traffic noises. Sue and Pat have renovated this old cottage to a very high standard, yet it retains much of its "old world charm" . Breakfasts were superb with a wide choice on offer. Parking was easy - right outside the front door - and we were made welcome to eat our picnic supper in the lovely garden (complete with loan of binoculars to view a woodpecker in a neighbouring tree) - and the added bonus of a gift of a coveted plant from the garden before our departure. Pat and Sue have a wide knowledge of the area - pubs, local attractions, car boot sales - and we would most certainly stay here again. Very highly recommended.

Slipper cottage was comfortable, elegant, clean, and relaxed. I had a fantastic stay. The food was delicious, and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. There is even a beautiful garden out the back with color-themed "rooms" and dozens of beautiful plants. The price is incredibly reasonable as well, considering the quality of the decor and the prime location for sight-seeing. Speaking of which, this would be a great "home base" while on holiday, as there are a number of amazing properties and destinations nearby. Montacute House, which is an incredibly beautiful manor house, is only a five minute walk away.

what I want from a b&b is that feeling of home that you do not get in some faceless hotel, Slipper Cottage has warmth and friendliness in droves. The rooms are spacious clean and very homely with out that feeling of " I better not touch" that you can feel in some places. Breakfast was fantastic with more choice than you would normally expect in most b&b's . If you want a relaxing time in a beautiful English village , there is no better than what is offered by Pat and Sue at Slipper Cottage.

My wife and I have just returned from Slipper Cottage after a very comfortable three days.
Sue and Pat our hosts made us very welcome.
Slipper Cottage is tastefully decorated and the breakfasts are to die for with home made bread and preserves,fruit,cereals and full English breakfast you were set up for the day,
Highly recommended for a return visit

Lovely B & B, well decorated, clean, comfortable and you are guaranteed the warmest welcome. Everything you want from a B & B, with hosts where nothing is a too much trouble. Location is great too, with beautiful surroundings.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely!

Visited Slipper Cottage when we were unable to rouse any staff at one of the other establishments in Montacute, which we had pre-booked. And this was early afternoon, too!

Sue and Patterson Weir were very welcoming to their B&B which has a magical garden. And if you are interested in local history, which we were, both sides of my wife's family having come from Montacute, then Patterson has an encyclopaedic knowledge.
