This is a great B&B, especially if you need somewhere to stay with your four legged friends. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, Jenny is a friendly and relaxed host (who loves doggy visitors) and the breakfast is delicious.This was our second visit to Church Byres and I don't suppose it will be our last.

I stayed here the night before my wedding & had my bridal prep in the morning at the b&b. Although the actual b&b is lovely(beautiful place with stunning setting!!) I was very much let down by Jenny the owner. Myself & all my bridal party found Her to be extremely rude to us. She walked into the b&b without knocking...

Jenny is a wonderful host who was very attentive during our stay. We had the full accommodation to ourselves; a twin room for the kids, double for us and a very cosy lounge. The kids loved the dogs and it was so nice to have a welcoming log burner lit to come into. There's basic kitchen stuff but a great...

This was a very last minute booking for a stopover. We wanted somewhere tranquil and open to nature and this absolutely delivered. The accommodation has a Double bedroom, a room with twin beds, a very large bathroom with a bath and separate shower and plenty of windows for fresh air and light. Best of all is a large private living...

We were so impressed by this gorgeous B&B tucked away in Somerset, from the warm welcome to the immaculate and spacious accommodation. Church Byres is so much more than a B&B.... with 2 good sized bedrooms, a lovely bathroom with separate shower and a huge sitting room, complete with wood burning stove, this is a stunning property. The gardens are...

I very beautiful and well kept place; inside and out. The owners were very nice and we loved their dog Bertie. We had some great walks around the village and went star gazing at night. The breakfast was tasty and filling and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. There was a lot of room to spread...

A wonderful stay in the countryside. So nice to have a sitting room to yourselves instead of hiding in a bedroom. Made the most of our stay by walking our dog and lighting the log burner which had been already prepped. Handy to have microwave which we took full advantage off and heated up an Indian we brought with us....

I have so many praises to sing for Church Byres and its great owners, Jenny and Peter, that I hardly know where to begin. You really do get your own suite to enjoy, equipped to a high specification and opening out on to an enclosed lawn with squirrels, rabbits and woodpeckers - we saw them all. Our dog, Lucy, was...

Church Byres is a lovely B&B but it is much more than that, if like me you like a bit more space then this is just the ticket. We booked for 2 nights as we had a wedding nearby and what appealed was the fact you had a large living area along with 2 bedrooms and a lovely garden. Added...

We were delighted with the lovely accommodation at Church Byres. Amazing value, especially considering the private sitting room and high standard of furnishings. Choice of a double and twin room (only let out to the same party) that share a spacious bathroom with a tub bath and separate rain shower. Excellent breakfast served in the sunny sitting room.
