Really old parsonage with plenty of character. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The shower is not great being electric and the double bed isn't exactly generous. The experience however was first class with a really good choice for breakfast including their homemade marmalade. Would certainly use this B&B again.

Really nice place - the people who own it are very knowledgeable and friendly. We very much appreciated the tea and coffee on arrival after a long and stressful journey to get there! They were also kind enough to suggest great places to go and visit for the day - we went to Bath but also to Cheddar Gorge and...

We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. We sat with Charlotte (the owner) next to the wood-burner and over a cup of tea she told us about the lovely old building (Grade 2* listed) and its history. A little later she produced menus and offered advice about local eateries. We slept soundly in a four poster bed...

A Grade 1 listed building which has been restored and upgraded by the current owners. Times past seep from every room with modern upgrades in terms of bathrooms. We walked in to a cosy sitting room with log burner ablaze, throwing out the heat! A delicious breakfast with home-made breads and marmalade. Perfect for venturing further into Somerset and close...
