Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Superbly positioned, with stunning views to the cathedral and the Somerset country beyond, Glastonbury Tor in the distance.’ Set in beautiful gardens and parkland, Frances and Tim Meeres Young’s 18th-century coach house is run as an extra-special B&B. Bedrooms, each individually styled, one with a four-poster, are dressed to the nines. ‘Our room was The Studio, a spacious self-contained cottage with a huge bed, a well-equipped bathroom with heated floor, a sunny table and chairs outside.’ Extras included ‘bottles of wine, chocolates, apples, a coffee machine and copious documentation about the house, garden and city’. Other readers were less keen on the self-catering Gatehouse Cottage, which, they felt, ‘needed a bit of a make-over’. There are spaces for guests to relax inside and out, perhaps with a cream tea. ‘Presiding over everything is Frances with a team of friendly young women.’ A lavish breakfast buffet in the ‘bright and light’ orangery includes smoothies, cold meats, Mere smoked trout, Somerset cheeses and home-made jams. Cooked dishes, charged extra, must be ordered the night before. (Edward Mirzoeff, and others)
