Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The perfect resting spot for a footsore hiker! Room was beautiful with a wonderful view (and a much-needed bath), lovely breakfast with plenty of choice, and the hosts could not have been more friendly or helpful. They really went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable and succeeded in spades. Thank you!

Lovely B&B, Great couple of rooms very comfortable. Marcia waited up for us to get back from playing a great gig at the Draycott Memorial Hall. Excellent breakfast the following morning before a long drive home back to Bedfordshire.

I was attending my son's wedding in Draycott and Oakland House was the perfect place to stay. Marcia et all were very friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. It was a relaxing stay and the breakfast was brilliant. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Marcia was lovely, very welcoming, and we’ve really enjoyed our two night stay in the pink room with our 5yr old; room was lovely and clean with an immaculate en suite. Breakfast was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Marcia’s and her partner took the time to chat with us, and chat with our daughter who enjoyed exploring their home and garden along with fussing their dog Archie. We’ve really enjoyed our stay and would be happy to stay again!

We stayed in the shepards hut in the grounds of Oakland House. Marcia and Mike were really lovely. The hut had everything you would need for a short break. It was clean and comfortable. It was the perfect base for exploring cheddar and Wells as well as surrounding areas. Will definitely return 5 ☆

Wow! From the moment we booked the wonderful Oakland house, nearly a year before the wedding, we knew our stay would be brilliant. We initially booked just the Saturday night as that was the day of the wedding and the owner, Marcia, had said that she would organise atleast one room for us to get ready in. Luckily, the week before, we rung and were able to also book the Friday so we wouldn't be rushed. Marcia then gave us the number of her friends taxi firm to get us to the church and this company were £10 cheaper than our relatives travelling from the same village. We were blown away by the hospitality, Marcia came to the village hall to pick us up at 10.30pm so we didn't have to sort a taxi, she also then went out and picked up the guests in the room next to us at 2 in the morning. Even after this she was able to cook us the most delicious fry up we've ever tasted. She had even sorted out Gluten free cereal and toast for one of our party. This was honestly an amazing stay and we would most definitely be back when we visit our family again. Amazing, thank you Marcia.

On the second leg of our three-day hike along the Mendip Way to Weston-super-Mare, my wife and I arrived footsore and weary at Oakland House to a warm welcome from our hostess Marcia. The lovely three course evening meal she cooked for us was an absolute life-saver, as well as being delicious, and we spent a pleasant evening with her chatting away. The room was clean and comfortable and provided the perfect rest for us before Marcia's homely breakfast helped set us off on our final day's walking to our destination, where we arrived at tea time. A very good b&b all round.

During the West Mendip hike I stayed for one night. The place was cheerfully decorated and very clean. My room had a nice view with a very spacious bathroom. The host Marcia was very friendly. She kindly let my friend sit in her living room while he was waiting for a bus, even though he did not stay for the night (there was nothing open in the village on Sunday evening so no other place to go). So we could comfortably chat there. I felt very comfortable as a solo traveler and I enjoyed a nice chat with her. The breakfast was wonderful, with delicious strawberries and blueberries directly harvested from Marcia's greenhouse. She also cooks scramble eggs beautifully. With enough energy I could continue on the 3rd day of the Mendip Way : ) I highly recommend her B&B!
