“Would love to return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Once you've looked at the Yallands Farmhouse website, stop searching. As we walked in the front door it felt right. Karen was waiting to greet us and to show us to our room which had little extras (eg: hot water bottle, sewing kit). Breakfast was perfect and Chris an entertaining waiter. Nothing seemed too much trouble and Karen & Chris were vying to see who could get the most smiles from our grandson! Next time we're in Taunton we know where we'll be staying.

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and we couldn't have found a better B & B. We had a lovely welcome, the rooms were cosy (even my 15 month old nephew slept well in the cot provided), the breakfast was yummy, and Chris and Karen were the perfect hosts. Would definitely stay here again when we're next in Taunton.
Thanks Chris and Karen!

Room Tip: My Sister, myself and my nephew were in the family room on one side of the building, and our parents...

If you are looking for a 16th century converted farmhouse that is now a recently renovated hotel - perhaps not. But you might re-consider that when you get a warm welcome and a well appointed room that is very reasonably priced. Yes, I will be back and definitely worth considering if you want something less monolithic for a change.

Arrived at Yallands Farmhouse - did not expect to find a piece of heaven. We were greeted by Chris & Karen and made to feel very welcome. Our room was in keeping with this lovely Farmhouse having great character, we were fortunate to be shown some of the other rooms and all were decorated to a high standard and all spotlessly clean. We had ordered an evening meal, which was home cooked, inexpensive and good value for money, make sure you try the homemade Ice cream. The full English breakfast catered for everybody’s needs, cooked to perfection and how you like it. The Farmhouse steeped in history, had a warm and pleasant feel about it, convenient for days out/attractions. We would definitely stay again. We stayed for two nights.

Room Tip: Would give Chris and Karen a call, all rooms are different and you can choose the room that suits yo...

Stayed just the Saturday night whilst visiting John's mother. Yes, Yalland's IS an island in the middle of a modern housing estate - but don't let that deter you. We found our courtyard room warm and inviting as was our welcome from Chris & Karen, and both of us had a great nights sleep followed by a lovely breakfast. We would recommend to all

We stayed for two nights at Yallands farmhouse and we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the " Granary " room which was spacious but still cosy. Good facilities especially the bathroom and the bed was very comfortable .Chris and Karen made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was very good . The farmhouse is located in the middle of a housing estate but don't let this put you off because due to the gardens and driveway you forget where you are and it is very quiet . Within 10 minutes walk you can catch the park and ride bus into Taunton. Yallands has great character and is convenient to all that Taunton has to offer. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: The Granary room is ideal for 3 people

We stayed for 3 nights in August whilst touring the west country. Yallands is tucked away in a modern housing estate, as a sort of relic of past times. Our first impression was very good and this was confirmed during our stay. Chris and Karen, our hosts, were very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, with a good bathroom, a comfortable bed, wifi and tea and coffee. The breakfast was very good with a large choice including full english, cereals, toast and marmalade. We didn't try the evening meals because you have to book them in advance.
You can walk to the city centre from Yallands or take a bus. There's a nice pub within a 10 minute walk from the B & B.
Yallands is a very pleasant B & B and can be recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Owners Chris & Karen Ward look forward to welcoming you to Yallands Farmhouse - our delightful Grade II Listed building dating back over 400 years, which sat amidst acres of green fields for several centuries. The expansion of Taunton during the 1970's led to new housing being built on the former farmland. The farmhouse, with its secluded garden, small orchard, and stone barn was left intact. As a result, Yallands has become an unexpected 'oasis' of peace and tranquility within a modern corner of Somerset's county town. Yallands offers self-assessed 4 star accommodation in Taunton, Somerset. The house is situated 1 1/2 miles from Taunton town centre, on the north-western edge of the town, and is easily reached from the M5 motorway - junction 25 (4 miles), and junction 26 (6 miles). For those who are reliant on public transport a local bus, with a stop at the foot of the garden, provides a frequent daytime service to and from the town centre. The lovely town centre provides excellent shopping and county cricket, horse racing, golf, theatre and other leisure facilities are all available nearby. Taunton has a good selection of restaurants and wine bars to suit most tastes and the surrounding countryside offers many delightful pubs which serve excellent food. There is ample car parking space in the private grounds together with lockable cycle storage in the stables. Why not enjoy relaxing in our gardens in the summer or sitting in front of our open fire in those cold winter months? Yallands is open all year round and - whether you are a tourist or a business visitor - you can be assured of a warm welcome and our individual attention.Yallands is particularly convenient for Taunton School, The Somerset Heritage Centre & Nuffield Hospital. ... more   less
