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...

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.

I booked a room here for friends who were attending my wedding. I paid in full in advance and confirmed that it would be possible to cancel the room if plans changed. I only had to give 48 hours notice to cancel the room. About two weeks before the wedding the plans changed slightly and the friends ended up staying...

Stayed one night (4 people 2 rooms) and found everything to be good, very good really, but a few small things could be better. First we had a four poster bed, which needed some attention as it was really noisy (creaking slats I suspect). A few small areas of attention to the room would help (gap in laminate floor, no...

Firstly, this is a B&B, not a hotel. My friend was getting married in Corfe and recommended this place as it's just down the road. After booking and reading some of the responses I started to get a bit worried as there seemed to be a lot of problems from other reviewers. What these people found wrong I have no...
