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’.
