“Perfect for a short stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

My wife and I stayed here one Friday in the summer en route to Lyme Regis.
The farm is very well located, close to Ilminster and a short walk down to the village of Donyatt.
James and Kate were the perfect hosts - helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The room we stayed in was modern and well fitted with an excellent en suite.
Breakfast was excellent. My only niggle was that I couldn't get the WiFi to work but as the farm's private rooms were being decorated this may have been the problem.
The George Inn in Donyatt did an excellent evening meal too.

Lovely working farm with superb accommodation. Great cooked breakfasts and really friendly people. Couldn't ask for more and will certainly recommend to friends! The local pub (George inn) in Donyatt was also superb and only a short walk away...

Beautiful farm in a lovely area. We were given a lovely welcome. Bedroom and en-suite decorated beautifully. Very comfortable queen size bed. Spotlessly clean. Proper farmhouse breakfast. The hosts could not have done more to make our stay any more pleasant. Will be recommending this lovely bed & breakfast to friends & family.

Travelling down and stopped for a stay over on the way to Cornwall. The bedroom and breakfast was really great, felt the host was a bit scared to talk us until we paid to leave other than that it was FAB!

To echo so many other reviews, Shave Farm is a wonderful place to stay for so many reasons - Kate and James very welcoming, lovely decor, comfy bed, great shower, easy to find, beautiful area, delicious breakfast, gorgeous cat! We stayed in the 'superior room/annex/suite' which has set the standard for what I want in a night away! Really hope to be back soon, great value for money. The George pub 10mins walk away served up a great dinner.
