Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Five stars.’ ‘Highly recommended.’ ‘Faultless.’ ‘Frances, Tim and their lovely staff treat guests as if they are treasured members of the family.’ This year’s Guide received plentiful accolades for Tim and Frances Meeres Young’s B&B in an 18th-century coach house. Wrapped in 25 acres of parkland with ‘magical’ views across Wells Cathedral to Glastonbury Tor, its six-acre garden displays water features, sculpture and judicious plantings to maintain year-round interest. Indoors, where ‘every comfort has been thought of’, there is free tea and cake on arrival, a pillow library and paraben-free, locally made toiletries. The ‘utterly luxurious, beautifully furnished’ garden studio suite, recommended by several readers, offers ‘sunset views from the bed, perfect’, while the ‘lovely, peaceful’ Lady Hamilton room sports a four-poster and ‘luxurious touches’. Other rooms have Mulberry fabrics, a half-tester canopy bed. A pre-ordered dinner of boeuf bourguignon and panna cotta was enjoyed, while breakfast, served in the orangery, with fresh pastries, home-made jams and multiple cooked options, alongside those tasty views, is ‘to die for’.

Guest comments

'Great attention to detail. Everything top quality. Fabulous views. Vast and impressive breakfast buffet;] cooked dishes ordered the night before. Very nice Studio room on gravel courtyard. ' - Diana Goodey - September, 2018
'We cannot recommend it too highly. Frances was most welcoming, producing tea and cakes. Our suite was beautifully set up. We had a two-course supper in the new conservatory. Breakfast was to die for. The view down to the cathedral is magical. ' - Alice and John Sennett - June, 2017
'Luxurious accommodation in a 20th-century house on rising ground immediately to the north of Wells. Breathtaking views of the city and the most beautiful six-acre grounds which include wildlife ponds, sculpture, walled and sunken gardens, gazebo, potsherds and a lime walk: a joy to explore. Breakfast was immaculately presented. The L-shaped bedroom was smallish, but tastefully appointed in boudoir style, with every convenience. All in all, a top recommendation, entirely deserving its popularity. ' - Robert Gower - May, 2017
'The welcome by Frances was warm and very attentive, and she was unfailingly helpful throughout. The layout of the house is quirky, but our room was very comfortable. The glory of the house is the panoramic view from a built-on breakfast room, which offers superb view down to Wells Cathedral, and over to Glastonbury Tor on the horizon. A full English breakfast is available but Frances is particularly proud of her continental breakfast. ' - Robert Grimley - March, 2017
'The owners and staff are tireless and delightful. We had the studio suite, very well equipped and with a lovely view from he loo. The new conservatory breakfast room has stunning views and the breakfast is amazing. ' - Peter Rogers - May, 2016
