My boyfriend and I stayed at Hollowell for two nights at the beginning of June because we had a wedding nearby, and we had a really wonderful time. Heather and Barry went far above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and help us out. The house and gardens are stunning, on arrival Heather bought us tea in the garden which was much appreciated after a hectic morning leaving London. The view is lovely and you can hear a pin drop, it was such a relaxing break. The room was exceptionally clean, the food was delicious, and on day two we got complimentary tea and cake in the afternoon, which was much appreciated after a 3 hour walk in the countryside! There are a few places to eat in the surrounding area, we went to the Cats Head pub and had some truly amazing food! I coudn't recommend this b&b enough, lovely surroundings, wonderful hosts, and great food.

It sits in its own gardens on the edge of the charming Somerset village of West Chinnock, just a few minutes walk to the Cat Head Inn, a must for all "foodies". The commercial centre of Yeovil is 15 mins drive away and has a good range of shops and department stores. The market town of Crewkerne is close by and has mainline rail links to London and beyond. Whether you are in the area on business or taking a few days break we think you will enjoy your time at Hollowell Cottage. We provide comfortable, spacious rooms with private or en-suite facilities together with colour TV, DVD and Wi-Fi with spectacular panoramic views from every window. Our breakfasts are made using locally sourced, free range and organic products wherever possible.

We think we have created a very special place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Hollowell is a place where you can relax and recharge your batteries in the comfort of your very own "room with a view." We are blessed with wonderful countryside to walk or cycle in and the country park at Ham Hill is only two miles away and provides fabulous walking or mountain biking. The Prince of Wales pub on Ham Hill itself or the Lord Nelson in Norton Sub Hamdon at the bottom of the hill, are ideally placed to offer you lunch.
