We have stayed here probably half a dozen times and what brings us back year after year is its such a delightful place to stay. Sally and Jules run a very fine establishment virtually single handed. The 5 rooms in a converted skittle alley are beautifully and thoughtfully furnished with flair and imagination. Excellent bathroom with deep soaking bath and... More

If you are in need of a quiet break with outstanding food this is the place to be. All the rooms are part of a converted barn and are eloquently furnished with beautiful bathroom facilities such as a walk in shower. The rooms have all the finishing touches of any 5* hotel including bath robes and tea/coffee facilities etc.... The... More

Myself and husband stayed here for 2 nights so that we could go to a wedding near by. The breakfast here is amazing! The room was really clean and very pretty. Would recommend this to family and friends :-)

Sally and Jools couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. They took the stress out of travelling for business and the food is worth the trip any day of the week. Really lovely food which I would have struggled to match in any top notch restaurant and I have been to a few. the setting is very rural which for... More

Great location: although right off a road, it is very quite and peaceful, and the rooms are along a little courtyard. The breakfast is exceptionally good- everything is locally sourced, freshly produced, and organic- and delicious. Must admit that the rooms are not luxurious (but rather a really upscale version of a Premier Inn) and the the price was a... More

So delighted to find this super place. A warm welcome from Sally & Jools after arriving late & despite the kitchen being closed we were provided with a delicious supper.

Very rarely do I use a B&B, however on this occasion I'm so pleased I made an exception. Arriving very late presented no problem to the hosts Jools and Sally - nothing was too much trouble. Food and drink provided well after the time when they could be expected to have closed for the night. Food delicious and drinks at... More

We've just got home from staying for 2 nights as we were visiting family in the area. Beautiful, stylish and comfortable accommodation with everything anyone could want and I truly couldn't think why we would ever want to stay anywhere else in the area. Lovely touches in the room (plenty of tea, coffee and milk etc., bottled water, a torch,... More

Strange experience being the only guest and customer staying in such a lovely place with such great food and lovely people. Hope the locals are ashamed of themselves, they ought to be for missing out on this! Definitely recommend it if you're in the area looking for a nice place to stay and a lovely meal!!

We stayed here for one night, Sally and Jools are perfect hosts. The individual beautifully styled rooms have been very well designed. They have thought of everything for your comfort. Cafetiere for your fresh coffee which we enjoyed in the delightful courtyard, Breakfast was wonderful with fantastic granola, you must try it.. A brilliant find and we highly recommend it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pilgrims is a 4 star Restaurant with Rooms and holds 2 AA Rosettes. It's as relaxed as a country pub but the food is better than many a city restaurant - not least because all the ingredients come from 'just over the brow of the hill.' And the rooms are simply stunning, Egyptian cotton, king size beds, roll top baths and walk-in showers. The Pilgrims - the best of Somerset on a plate. ... more   less
