I stayed here for four nights with my elderly mother last week and can't recommend it highly enough! What a shame Kathy is retiring soon - I would have loved to have stayed again! The bedrooms were quiet, spacious and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and excellent showers. There was a very comfortable lounge available for exclusive use of guests...

Everything was excellent: the breakfast, the rooms, the cleanliness. Well done for maintaining this standard for so long. It is such a pity that the owner is planning to retire in the autumn. Hope to go back before then.

Kathy & Archie are welcoming hosts. The house is immaculately clean and the breakfast selection wide and tasty. It is great to stay somewhere where decaf coffee drinkers are appreciated and filter coffee is provided.

This is a lovely B&B, with excellent facilities, a terrific breakfast and a very friendly and helpful owner on hand to help you with any queries. There is a good local pub in the village, which serves great food too. Instead of driving through Somerset next trip, I shall certainly stay here and and spend more time in the area....

I booked this by chance, as we were looking for somewhere to stay as part of a short break in the West Country. South Petherton is located just off the A303, so is perfect if you are using this route to Devon or Cornwall, for an overnight stop. The Square House is a delightful property with a very interesting history....

Friendly and welcoming host. Cute dog. Comfortable bed in elegant period surroundings. Breakfast was a sociable experience all seated around a large oval table. Local produce cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed the selection of fresh fruit and my husband was most impressed with the poached eggs!

Situated in a lovely village, still with its own village life. The B & B is peaceful, very clean and has a lovely ambience. The proprietor has thought about everything including the tasteful decor and dietary needs.
