Good Hotel Guide Review

‘An eartly paradise in warm sunshine.’ Approached by a drive through parkland, Tim and Frances Meeres Young’s upmarket B&B, in an 18th-century coach house, is surrounded by gardens ‘tended with love and skill’. ‘The glory of the house is the superb panoramic view’ from the orangery breakfast room, taking in the cathedral, and Glastonbury Tor on the horizon. Arrive to a ‘warm welcome’: ‘Frances is an attentive, unfailingly friendly hostess.’ The many sitting rooms hold magazines, books and board games; a help-yourself pantry is a nice addition. ‘Tastefully appointed’ bedrooms, including a studio suite with its own outdoor sitting area, are all supplied with fruit, flowers, robes and slippers. For guests too ensconced to head into town (Wells is a five-minute drive or 20-minute downhill walk away), simple evening meals or ‘silver-service’ group dinners may be served by arrangement. In the morning, the ‘amazing breakfast’ has ‘a splendid range’ of breads, pastries and home-made preserves; charcuterie, smoked fish and cheeses. Plus: ‘You can’t help but feel good looking at that view.’ (Robert Gower, Robert and Joan Grimley, Elizabeth Laczynska, PR)

Guest comments

'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
