If you're looking for a B&B in or around Nether Stowey, then look no further. Lynne and Ian were very welcoming and the place itself was clean and well kept. The complimentary sherry in the room was a lovely surprise after a long drive down from London. The breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day quite nicely.... More

The sherry always goes down well and makes a lovely start to the evening. We love cooking for our guests and, with vegetables still in the garden, we are able to provide guests with fresh produce at every meal. The purple sprouting broccoli is lovely at the moment. More

Our hosts made us feel at home from the first phone call.We booked an evening meal which was very tasty and they were interesting to talk with but never `pushy' so it was a really pleasant evening. Large, comfortable room (and bed) and good breakfast.What more do you want?

We have used the Cider house a few times now because it is so dog friendly, and people friendly too. And it does not smell of wet dog! There is a dog friendly ground floor room which gives easy access with the mutts and a really comfy lounge where you can have a warming cuppa. For the paranoid in our... More

The Quantocks are incredibly dog friendly and it is difficult to find a pub that does not allow dogs. The Rose and Crown is a fantastic pub - we drink there (having said that we also drink in the Ancient Mariner and George - which are also lovely). More

Stayed for 2 nights, 7th & 8th November. We do not have a dog but are dog friendly. Quantock room was well decorated, and everything worked fine. The bed was very comfortable. Ian and Lynne were helpful after settling us in. If you need something just ask. Lyn printed out a car tour for us as the weather was miserable.... More

We were given a Smartbox voucher & decided on this B&B. It was lovely and Ian and Lynn (& Ozy the dog) were very welcoming. Our room (the Castle Room) was beautifully decorated.

Thank you for your helpful comments. Our loos in the two front rooms do have macerators (due to the age of the house) and can be a tad noisy, especially as the Village is so quiet and peaceful at night (or, in fact, at any time of the day). We too love the Castle Room and stay in their over... More

We stayed for three nights - arriving on a Thursday evening, and staying until the Sunday night. We did read many of the reviews before we arrived, and must say that we had a thoroughly pleasant stay. And yes, the bed was squeaky and the shower head did fall off a few times - but hey, if that bothers you,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We run the sort of guesthouse that we would want to stay at. That's why we cook good simple food, buy locally and have our own microbrewery. We are relaxed, un-stuffy and welcome dogs. A great place for walking, mountain biking, sightseeing and, above all, relaxing. So, turn off the Blackberry and have a good time. ... more   less
