Lovely b&b, very friendly welcome from the owners son, lovely lad. Stayed in the "stables" immaculately clean, lovely comfy 4 poster bed, great rustic charm. Huge breakfast, very friendly couple and even friendlier spaniel!

Stayed here for one night and felt that the room was to grand for what I ended up using for. It was just meant for a over night stay and believed I was just going to get basic double room, what I got was a four poster bedroom with lounge ensuite. The room was at the side of the main...

We stayed here for our wedding night, and the room was nice but could have done with a few more touches. Unfortunately, the next morning (sunday) when we went for our first breakfast as a newly married couple (at 10am) we were rather taken aback that, after being identified as the newly weds, that we were too late for breakfast...

Greeted by friendly and professional landlady, who took the right amount of time to introduce us to our room. She gave us good advice for dining out later. The accommodation comprised of a bedroom with en suite and living room. All of which were perfectly presentable and clean. Our room was separate from the main house so it felt more...

4 poster very comfortable beds, lovely rooms, great breakfast, accommodating hosts. Very clean. The room we stayed in was huge, with plenty of room for sofa. Ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. Outdoor patio area with seating right outside our room, and large gardens. Would definitely stay again.

Arrived to be met by a young lad, who didn't even ask for our name or booking and said "Keys are in the door so I'll take you round". As we walked around the house of weeds and through the garden of weeds, he stated that he had been in Madrid for a week and a lot of weeding to...

The rooms here are a really nice place to be, if a little chilly. The bed however was comfy and toasty warm and the breakfast was properly delicious. Served in a lovely dining room with great coffee and chilled ambiance from the classical music on tap it really set's you up for the day.

Such a lovely warm and welcoming place. Loved the room, so very tastefully furnished and a fantastic breakfast. We have been to many fabulous B&B's but I have to say this being one of the best. We arrived to the very friendly and welcoming Joe who checked us into our room a little later than we should have checked in...

Stayed here for two nights last weekend, having stayed there late Summer. A really nice guest house with detached accommodation in refurbished barns with a separate lounges, en-suites and four poster beds. Makes it a really special stay and just 7 minutes drive to centre of the town. Excellent breakfast as well. Nice grounds and lots of parking.Despite being in...

I liked my room, quit with a separate sitting area and a work space. Bathroom was surprisingly upscale with a huge tub and rain head shower. Breakfast was good and served on time. Very good value for money, this may be my regular place in Taunton.

Thank Robin S
