This is one of the nicest bed & breakfast I've stayed in. The room was with a four poster bed and it was so lovely and very clean. The location is perfect and the owners are very welcoming. The whole bed and breakfast was decorated very well and the lonuge so warm and cosy. The breakfast was perfect even freshly...

So glad you enjoyed your week end away and everything was just right for you at The Old Parsonage. A blazing log fire makes all the difference when it is is miserable outside!

A beautiful building, welcoming fire in the lounge and a grand room. The bed was super comfy and toasty warm. I normally sleep badly anywhere other than home, but at the old parsonage I slept excellent. The added bonus of the little kitchen area made it homely and flexible. A fabulous modern bathroom with a great shower. Knowledgeable and friendly...

Really old parsonage with plenty of character. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The shower is not great being electric and the double bed isn't exactly generous. The experience however was first class with a really good choice for breakfast including their homemade marmalade. Would certainly use this B&B again.

Really nice place - the people who own it are very knowledgeable and friendly. We very much appreciated the tea and coffee on arrival after a long and stressful journey to get there! They were also kind enough to suggest great places to go and visit for the day - we went to Bath but also to Cheddar Gorge and...

Thank you so much for the enthusiastic review. All of our guests appreciate a pot of tea or coffee by the fire especially if they have driven a long way. Glad you liked the breakfast and the homemade produce. The weather is beyond us but the room in question does have a 2nd radiator and when used the room can...

We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. We sat with Charlotte (the owner) next to the wood-burner and over a cup of tea she told us about the lovely old building (Grade 2* listed) and its history. A little later she produced menus and offered advice about local eateries. We slept soundly in a four poster bed...

A Grade 1 listed building which has been restored and upgraded by the current owners. Times past seep from every room with modern upgrades in terms of bathrooms. We walked in to a cosy sitting room with log burner ablaze, throwing out the heat! A delicious breakfast with home-made breads and marmalade. Perfect for venturing further into Somerset and close...

Checked into our B&B for the next 3 nights and had the most marvelous experience of finding a positively palatial size room with a huge beautiful bathroom in this lovely Grade 2 listed property.
