“Warm and welcoming B&B just off the A303”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
person found this review helpful

I stayed at the Lodge House B&B with my wife and 7 month old son when we attended a friend's Birthday bash in the village of Buckland St Mary. Even before we arrived our hosts were being very attentive having phoned us in concern over the size of their travel cot, seeing as we were travelling with a baby. Having talked it through, we came to a workable solution.

A definite point to note is that the lanes in and around the B&B are small and it is well worth taking a look at the B&Bs website and viewing their YouTube video on how to get there.

Then when we arrived, we were met with a very friendly welcome by the proprietors, Kathy and Neil, and treated to tea and cake while we settled ourselves in. The room was not en suite, however, as this is not a big B&B and they have just finished some development work, each set of guests (at least when we were there) had their own set of stairs and near enough their own bathroom. The room we stayed at the front of the property on the 1st floor was spaceous and decorated in keeping with a nice county cottage, the only thing not in keeping was the bedside lamps but that's nitpicking really. There was tea and coffee available plus shortbread biscuits. We all slept well.

Breakfast was a good hearty and tasty full English with juices, tea / coffee and cereals also available. Again our hosts were warm and welcoming and didn't mind us cluttering up their kitchen with various baby bits and pieces as we tried to keep the young boy either asleep or entertained.

Overall, we thought that this was a great little B&B in a nice tranquil spot in the Blackdown Hills. We would definitely recommend as this for us represented great value for money.

Thank you for your positive review and kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Just to clarify we would point out that each guest room has either its own ensuite or dedicated bathroom, two of which are on different floors off one staircase in the recently renovated section of the house, and the other up a separate staircase, but in each case the bedroom and bathroom are the only rooms on that landing so very private.
The bedside lights in each room are modern high quality reading lights with daylight bulbs so the best we could find.
Thank you again for your review, and we would welcome you back here anytime.
