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)
