Sam clearly takes pride in his B&B and we found him both personable and helpful. The room was a little disappointing because the only daylight was via a narrow skylight at the apex of the room. It felt somewhat enclosed and dark, frustratingly so as the views around the property were delightful. Still, nearby is the quaint village of Nunney with its medieval castle which is gorgeous and unspoilt. We liked Mells, too, which was just a little further on from Nunney with its brook and handy walks. The breakfast and the breakfast-room were lovely. Be warned though, if you are a veggie, to specify that you don't want bacon involved in your eggs Benedict. On the night, we went to a wedding some three miles away and ordered a taxi. The driver explained that he had to charge a £10 surcharge because of coming from Frome though he only charged us £5 which was kind, adding that all taxi drivers did. As that was a given, we accepted it, but wondered why the outgoing fare was about £15 and the return £27. Still, that has nothing to do with Sam and the property but it is an indication of an aspect of its location. A room with a view would have bumped this review a notch.
