Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Fabulous views’ over the cathedral and the Vale of Avalon to Glastonbury Tor await at Frances and Tim Meeres Young’s 18th-century coach house, run as a ‘faultless’ B&B. ‘The site is beautiful’, in gardens and parkland, with wildlife ponds and water features, rose garden, acer glades, a fernery, a potager, ‘wonderful, huge trees’. Bedrooms are lavishly furnished, Lady Hamilton has a four-poster and an Italian-tiled bathroom, Black Orchid modern styling, an espresso machine. The Studio, in a gravel courtyard, beside car parking, was ‘very nice, with table and chairs on a small patio’, a reader reports. Tea and cake are offered on arrival. Toiletries are cruelty free, locally made. Guests have use of a sitting room with a pantry. Give notice to dine in, either a light supper or full silver service. A ‘vast and impressive continental breakfast’ in the orangery brings freshly baked breads and pastries, home-made jams. Cooked dishes, with an extra charge, must be ordered the night before. ‘I don’t eat meat but was given a vegetarian Scotch egg and delicious pear and Stilton pâté.’ It is a happy ship. ‘The staff said how much they loved working there.’ (Diana Goodey, Sally Mehalko)
