First of all, Williton itself is a very convenient place for exploring North Somerset. Close to everything yet away from the crowds. Arden Cottage is set on a main route but a good distance back from the road, so the traffic is not a problem. Williton has a very good Indian restaurant and a couple of pubs that do average pub food, so its not a gastronomic paradise. There are eating places within a few miles, however.
Location apart - this is a fabulous old building, recently restored from almost dereliction and a lovely mix of ancient construction and modern facilities. A very comfortable place to stay despite indifferent weather. We were welcomed by Paul with a pot of tea in the Conservatory, our room was en-suite with a shower and the very large and comfortable bed was festooned with pillows. Jane's breakfasts were varied and freshly cooked to order and most acceptable especially as the produce was all local.
Could not fault the B&B at all and would certainly go back. Do not be put off by the 'dog friendly' description if you are not a dog owner - only charming well behaved dogs are allowed here!
