I can't recommend Marston Lodge highly enough. It's a beautiful period house, elegantly and comfortably furnished with some great artwork in every room. It's lovely and clean with attractive gardens. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, with a comfortable bed, stylish en suite. huge windows affording stunning views of the sea, the town below and the rolling Somerset countryside.
The owners and their family made us feel entirely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Service was efficient, friendly and warm, if a little frenetic at busy times. Every morning, Alex the owner supplies maps with routes drawn on showing local "gems" a visitor might never find. Priceless. They also loaned me a usb plug so I could charge my phone when I realised I'd forgotten my own.
Breakfast was delicious and fresh items locally sourced - eggs were from the hotel's own chickens. Apparently they were in the garden, but I didn't see or hear them. Evening meals are not standard, but we could arrange them in the morning for a time to suit. I wish we'd done this earlier in our stay as the one we had on the last day was delicious with veg picked from the hotel garden moments before cooking and it showed. It was also very good value for money. Highly recommended.
