“OUTSTANDING BED AND BREAKAST”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I cannot recommend Millstream Cottage highly enough. I could rant on and on about the immediate feeling of welcome you recieve as soon as you enter the cottage door, the warmth and hospitality that smothers you like a warm blanket, the tea and beautiful apple cake upon arrival, the genuine interest and helpfulness of the hosts, the delicious breakfasts, homely and comfortable bedroom and reception rooms,,,Only one complaint...we so wish we could have stayed much, much longer. Had a fantastic two night break, made even more special by Sue and Charles` hospitality.

Sue greeted us with a piece of homemade chocolate cake and our choice of tea or coffee, both delicious. Sue is amazingly welcoming and friendly, and we were soon chatting away as though we had known each other for a long time. We stayed in the red room overlooking the garden which was perfect, and the (new) bed was lovely and firm.

The breakfast was perfect and I had my boiled eggs, all sourced from Sue`s friends farm just a few miles from the cottage. Unfortunately we missed Sue`s homemade sausages by one day but I can`t imagine that they would be less than stunning. Charles was also happy to help, and he made us laugh by saying that Sue was working him hard in his retirement!

Sue was more than happy to recommend walks, trips and make meal bookings for us, and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. I hope a TV producer takes Sue up on her idea, as we think it is brilliant. If you want to know more you need to stay with Sue and ask her!

The cottage is a nice walk from Dunster castle and the lovely gardens (go to the watermill and Lovers Bridge) and a hot cup of coffee with some of Sue`s homemade biscuits certainly slipped down a treat!

Thank you to Sue & Charles for a perfect birthday weekend away, both Andy & I can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful!

What a fantastic B&B. From the moment we walked through the door we felt completely at home. Sue made us tea and served us apple cake in the guest sitting room and within no time at all we were chatting like old friends. The bedroom we had was wonderful and breakfast certainly set us up for the day. Sue and Charles know the area really well so if you want advice on anything from the best local walks or where to eat in the evening their advice is spot on. Millstream is in the heart of the village with pubs, restaurants and castle just a short walk away. A brilliant place to stay and we look forward to going back.

We recently stayed at Millstream Cottage for a second time and it was just as perfect as the first. Sue and Charles very welcoming, beautiful cottage in the perfect chocolate box village location with lovely cosy well appointed rooms and fab breakfast. We stayed in the small double room at the front of the cottage overlooking the garden with lovely duck egg blue decor and I think it might be my new favourite! The bed was lovely and comfortable and the window seat too. Great shower with lovely hot water and good pressure.

Highly recommended - we will be returning.

Room Tip: All are lovely

We had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic B&B over Easter and we didn't want to leave! Even before arriving Sue had asked if we needed any help or advice on booking restaurants or things to do in the area. Once there , nothing was too much trouble. The room and the facilities were superb. Everything is spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was also of a high standard and Sue and Charles were brilliant hosts. We would definitely stay again. It was one of the best places we have stayed.

Many thanks to Sue and Charles who made my stay a pleasure. The bed was comfortable, the Haddock and poached eggs for breakfast was excellent and overall hospitality was superb! I also receive insightful advice about local restaurants and activities from Sue, which was very useful.

Thoroughly deserving of its No 1 status the Millstream Cottage could not be better. King bed (Rm 2) was excellent, beautifully decorated and very comfortable, Afternoon tea on arrival was to die for - apple cake with tea - just perfect.
Breakfast as expected was first rate. High qulaity food cooked to perfection.
It is the attention to detail that makes this stand out - everything from fresh flowers to small torches in the bedside cabinets
V highly recommended
