Amazing! Stayed 3 nights and it was perfect. Alan and Caroline and their staff couldn’t be more welcoming and work hard to ensure your stay is perfect. Barlake lodge was gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The food…..fantastic! Would recommend the avocado on a bagel for breakfast! We had dinner on 2 evenings and everything we both had was delicious. We booked a return visit later in the year as we checked out - never done that before! Can’t recommend it enough!

A huge thanks to Caroline, Alan and their team for a fantastic long weekend.

We booked into Barlake lodge which is situated in the grounds of the Inn. A self contained lodge with views into open fields and friendly cows coming over to say hi. A great bathroom with separate shower and free standing bath, perfect for a soak after a day spent exploring. Bar. Fantastic bath products in the bathrooms too. The service from the team was outstanding and the food was awesome. If you are looking for great food, fantastic service and comfy beds The Holcombe Inn needs to be on your list of places to stay.

This is a special place, created and managed with a great deal of thought and flair. Our family Sunday lunch was quite delicious - high quality and interesting ingredients cooked beautifully. My skate wing was the best of a great many skate wings I've eaten over the years. Lamb and beef also top notch and unusually, vegetarian dishes that stand up in their own right , not just to tick the box, Staff clearly happy and engaged with good knowledge of wine and confident in their recommendations. Sublime Somerset setting

My partner and I booked a bed and breakfast room here and we were so impressed with the absolutely stunning pub, restaurant, gorgeous room and facilities.
We highly recommend you book here if you’re going to visit this part of Somerset. We visited Wells which was fabulous!!

We received a really warm welcome from Caroline, Alan, John and team.
The decor is classy, plush and incorporates all of the original features of this beautiful building. Large well kept gardens boasting home grown produce and beautiful flowers. Outdoor dining an option if you prefer and is covered with a stylish Capri style marquee in case of inclement weather.

The bar and restaurant were exquisitely decorated with tasteful pictures, open fire and original historical brickwork.
The attention to detail and all of the classy extras and finishing touches to the restaurant and the accommodation give the wow factor.

Plenty of drinks choices on tap and offers a great local ciders too.
We chatted to the friendly staff who gave us some top tips on local attractions and even the best places to park when sightseeing.

The room we stayed in was impeccably decorated, spotless, our huge king sized bed was furnished with high end bedding and super comfy. There was ample tea and coffee making facilities, large wardrobe, fan, hairdryer and the bathroom was spotless with high end fluffy bath sheets!
The view of Somerset and the sunset was amazing from our bedroom window!

We ate in the busy restaurant (Sunday lunch) the food was absolutely stunning! Choice, presentation, quality ingredients and flavours were of top restaurant quality.
All seasoned and sumptuous! The chef here is truly talented!

Our breakfast was utterly delicious, fabulous menu choices of both hot and cold dishes - continental pastries, home made granola with juicy berries and hot food made to order from the kitchen. You can tell the ingredients, presentation and flavours were of top quality and the service was perfect. Linen napkins, tableware and glassware with individual fresh jams and condiments readily available.

This hidden gem really is too good to miss!

We felt were utterly spoilt here and will definitely return. Great car parking too and the views of Somerset are beautiful.

Thank you Caroline, Alan and team for such a superb break.
