Good Hotel Guide Review

‘There are no flashy bits, just a friendly atmosphere and good, old-fashioned hospitality’ at Ann and Ian Dyer’s rural B&B on the family farm at the foot of the Quantock hills. ‘It’s one of the best places (maybe the best) I’ve stayed in,’ a Guide reader says. In countryside where native ponies, deer and wild fowl roam and graze, the Grade I listed 15th-century manor house retains character in its ancient beams, stone archways, leaded windows and medieval garderobes. In the Great Hall, where breakfast is taken at a carved-oak refectory table, a log fire burns in the massive stone fireplace. Bedrooms (some ‘amazingly large’) are in the main house, the converted barn and cider press, plus a quirky shepherd’s hut in secluded gardens. All rooms are supplied with fresh milk on the tea tray. Breakfast gives a taste of the place: home-made muesli; bread from the village baker; eggs from the farm’s free-range hens; organic milk and cream from a Somerset dairy. Local walks take in village, field and stream; on your return, visit the farm shop/café for home-baked cake, Blackmore Farm ice creams, perhaps one of Ian Dyer’s specials of the day. (ME)
