We wanted a few days away to get some sea air and just relax and eat good food. The Old Ship Aground was perfect for us. Situated in the harbour we had a large king room which was very comfortable with everything we needed. Covid measures were excellent and we felt safe and comfortable the whole stay. We ate in the restaurant on 2 nights and the food was really good with a good choice to suit anyone. The staff were very attentive and worked hard. Breakfast was also very good and great value as it was included with the price. We spent the time exploring the area, I think a car is needed. A visit to Dunster is a must. All in all a lovely break and time to recharge the batteries. Thank you to all at The Ship. We will return.

-A very friendly, comfortable atmosphere yet very professional service throughout. -The picturesque location enhances the relaxing atmosphere. -The preventive measures taken to deal with the present situation leave one feeling very safe but do not intrude on one's overall enjoyment. It is quite obvious that considerable thought has gone into the planning. -Nothing is too much trouble for the ever present owner and his charming crew.
