Good Hotel Guide Review
‘I cannot fault this B&B in any way,’ writes a first-time visitor in 2016. Children, medievalists, and guests seeking ‘good, old-fashioned hospitality’ appreciate Ann and Ian Dyer’s ‘fantastic’ 15th-century manor house and working farm at the foot of the Quantock hills. ‘I was looked after by the hosts and made to feel very welcome.’ Enter under thick wisteria into the impressive Great Hall, with its large inglenook fireplace and long oak refectory table (a communal breakfast is taken here). The Dyers have embraced the house’s history, retaining many architectural features: stone archways, medieval garderobes, cob-and-lime-plaster walls. Bedrooms are scattered across the main building and converted outbuildings. ‘My large bedroom was amazing: great views, excellent bathroom, fresh milk for tea.’ Inquisitive children might want to explore the nooks and crannies of the ‘quirky’ rooms, run free in the gardens and watch the cows being milked. Less active ones may appreciate the books and board games in the sitting room. ‘Breakfast in front of the log fire was perfect.’ Lunch, and Blackmore ice cream, can be had at the café.
