“'Happy Guest' - Shropshire”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Thanks originally to Alastair Sawday we first discovered this delightful B&B as a 'halfway' overnight stay on our way to regular holidays in Cornwall.Only 3 or 4 minutes from junction 26 of the M5 it is is a real pleasure to turn off the motorway into the calm and tranquility of the small village of West Buckland which, due to the lie of the land, is well shielded from the traffic one has left behind and whose memory is quickly erased by the personal welcome and comforts of Causeway Cottage.

We quickly discovered that this easy access provides a gateway to the many attractions shared with its nearby county town of Taunton, only one junction before (or after), but without the traffic lights and hubbub of the urban environment. This has led us to extend some of our stays and to explore hitherto unknown countryside such as the Blackdown hills, the Quantocks and further to Exmoor and the North Devon coast, containing charming small towns like Ilminster, a variety of National Trust properties and specialist attractions such as a motor museum, a naval air station and a restored steam railway.
Always returning from such pleasures to the bonus of the 'Cordon Bleu' cuisine of hostess Lesley who, in her "spare time" also conducts cookery courses.

We stayed three nights bed and breakfast and found it to be a peaceful idyll in a rural corner of Somerset, but convenient for the M5.

Could not fault the quality of the food and enjoyed Lesley's tea and home made cake in the garden under the apple tree.

Would certainly recommend Causeway Cottage unreservedly, and we hope to return in September.

We have just spent 3 nights at Causeway Cottage in the green room which looks out onto the beautiful garden. Lesley and Robert are very welcoming; on arrival making us tea and homemade cake for us to sit and enjoy in the garden, which they did everyday when we returned from a day out. Breakfast was really tasty, all local produce and Lesley's homemade bread and preserves. They are so helpful, helping to plan our days out and routes to use. A fantastic place, its like home from home, one highly recommended and we hope to visit again sometime.

Room Tip: The green room has a beautiful view of the garden.

We had a most enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage. Its setting and gardens are idyllic and tranquil. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home and it really did feel like a home from home. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment of it. Lesley and Robert are perfect hosts and Lesley's cooking is superb. We will certainly be returning in the future. This is an absolute gem!

My three night stay at Causeway Cottage was a delight from beginning to end . Lesley and Robert are the most welcoming hosts you could possibly meet and nothing is too much trouble from providing tea and delicious cake on returning from our outing's each day to informing us of places of specific interest to my friend and myself. As for breakfast and dinner it was all superb; delicious home made bread of different varieties, ample fruit and anything Lesley cooked was truly delicious. Lesley's cuisine was superb and, being a keen cook myself, I came home inspired with her own wonderful recipe books. The room was comfortable and very clean with a magnificent view of West Buckland church. I don't believe I could have a more enjoyable nor gastronomic stay anywhere else. I will definitely be returning to Causeway Cottage and will be recommending it to my friends .

I only stayed for one night owing to my dog having an overnight stay in the local specialist vet centre, but I'll be going again for longer. This is a beautiful house in a picturesque area and Lesley and Robert were the perfect hosts. My room was cosy and spotlessly clean and the bed was the best I have ever slept in. Breakfast was like a banquet and filled me up for the rest of the day. Highly recommended.

Lesley and Robert are friendly and very helpful. We got tea at our arrival and every morning Robert suggested where we could drive this day.
The breakfast was great, especially the self-made fruit-compott and the plum-sauce.
Staying at CausewayCottage was fantastic. :)
