“Our third stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Once again, excellent. Spotlessly clean, oh so comfy beds, wonderful breakfast with lots of choice and fabulous hosts. Just love it here. Even the church bells would not put us off, Thank you, Cliff and Trish, for your hospitality

Everything you would want from a luxury, high end B&B. Clean, tidy, great breakfast (at least 3 courses), 6 foot bed in a well equipped bedroom, fantastic hosts. Central for great walks, restaurants and pubs.
Probably the best B&B we have ever visited!

We have stayed with Cliff and Tricia a few times in their historic house and always feel welcomed. The rooms are very comfortable and impeccably clean. Being brought a gin and tonic before setting out in the evening to a restaurant, usually the pub opposite, recommended by Cliff is delightful. The breakfast is not to be missed, all local produce and Tricia's homemade fruit bread is an extra experience.
We will be back.

Cliff and Tricia allowed our sometimes chaotic family, ranging in age from 14 months to 74 years, to take over their lovely place for our Golden Wedding celebration. They couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. The hospitality, house and rooms were perfect, with every amenity and comfort in a historic setting. Thank you!

Without a doubt one of the prettiest places in which we have ever stayed. We stayed in the Porlock room and it felt as if we were privileged to sleep there. The Inn(?) is so well managed and owned by Cliff and Tricia. Before dinner drinks were very appreciated and breakfast the following morning was wonderful.
A worthwhile experience in all manners.
Thank you very ,much for having us

Wonderfully attentive hospitality, excellent breakfast cooked to perfection including very taste homemade bread; lovely rooms all with a warming and welcoming atmosphere but most of all a beautiful house full of history and character – it was a honour to be able to stay there. Will definitely visit again.

We stayed two nights in this delightful luxury hotel, a wonderfully warm welcome when we arrived which continued all through our stay, nothing was too much trouble, I have to confess that I have never come across a place where the hosts go to such lengths to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Wonderful character place where the breakfast is a dream, early evening pre diner drinks are of a selection which is out of this world, Cliff is a mine of information on wines and where to eat in Dunster and Tricia is a Chef par excellence, 5 Stars isn't enough for the experience you get staying here....Can't recommend this place enough. Many thanks to Cliff and Tricia for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: It won't matter, all the rooms are superb.
