Good Hotel Guide Review

Breakfast is served at a carved oak refectory table by the Great Hall’s massive log fire at Ann and Ian Dyer’s B&B in a manor house with private chapel. Surrounded by the family farm at the foot of the Quantocks, it has a suit of armour, medieval pikes and halberds – but no battleaxes, just ‘a friendly atmosphere’ and ‘old-fashioned hospitality’. The house is ‘amazing’, an architectural treasure trove of oak panelling, ogee-headed doors and lancet arch windows, built around the reign of Richard III. In the main house there are two huge four-poster rooms; a suite with stairs to sitting room and bathroom, while in a barn conversion, suites have fridge, toaster, microwave. The Cider Press, sleeping four, has a kitchen, patio and small garden, while two can fit snugly into the shepherd’s hut. All come with fresh milk (this is a dairy farm). Free-range breakfast eggs are from Blackmore’s hens, bread is from the village bakery, bacon and sausages from award-winning butcher Pyne’s of Somerset. The farm shop/café has soups, quiches, home-made cakes, cream teas. For dinner, the village pub is a stroll away.
