“A great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

We have just enjoyed two lovely nights in the 'Stratford Suite' with our baby girl. This suite is spacious with a large double bedroom, and a single bedroom which are connected to the bathroom via your own private hallway with wardrobe space. The rooms are all beautifully decorated, and are a great retreat to come back to after a long day out. They had even provided teddy bears, childrens books and DVD's to keep our baby girl entertained!!

Judy & Stuart are fab hosts and can't do enough for you, as demonstrated above. The comprehensive breakfast is also great, with good quality produce sourced, including home made jams and preserves. (The fig jam was a real surprise and yummy!) You certainly won't go hungry that's for sure!

Everywhere is absolutely spotlessly clean and so well presented. You really won't find anywhere nicer to stay, I'm sure of it. I'm so happy we chose to stay here, and will certainly be calling Judy again when we next visit our friends in Somerset! 5 stars!!!!

My wife and I have been using this B&B since it was first opened in 2008. We visit various friends in the West Country each year and staying at Liongate has become part of the holiday. We are greeted by Stuart and Judy like old friends each time we visit; even if it is only for one night. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
We visit various parts of Britain each year and have a short list of good B&B's at which to stay, but none of them can hold a candle to this place, for luxurious rooms, excellent breakfasts, restful gardens and a brilliant and friendly welcome. As it says in the title "You will never find a better B&B as this one."

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally excellent

We stayed at Liongate House to attend a wedding just down the road and I am confident that we had the best accommodation out of all the guests attending the wedding! The room was spotless and had everything you might require. Judy and Stuart were amazing hosts and allowed you to feel right at home. Breakfast was amazing, with lovely homemade jams and we also enjoyed a walk around the garden to see the jig tree and strawberry plants. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Stratford Suite which was lovely, but I'm pretty sure all the rooms will be of...

My husband and I spent 6 nights here and had a wonderful time! The room was spotless and had everything we needed. Judy and Stuart are amazing hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Stuart spent an afternoon making jam while we were there and it was delicious! The breakfasts were freshly prepared and faultless. While there we questioned them about why they haven't got 5 Stars and the only reason is that they don't have a separate guest lounge. They deserve 5 Stars lounge or not! We came away feeling that we were saying goodbye to friends and if we are in the area will definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Firstly, we need to apologise for not responding earlier but we remember you so well and want to thank you for taking the time to write such great comments. We're hoping that this year the weather will be much drier and a little warmer so that we have a bumper crop of fruit to make lots more varieties of jam! Hope to see you again sometime.

If you are looking for the perfect B&B in the Ilchester area you will have found it if you stay with Judy & Stuart at the Liongate House. This B&B is tucked away from the main road, just behind Darlington House in the village of Ilchester. It is the most perfect place you will ever stay and the roomslooked after personally by the kind and caring hosts plus the breakfasts with a very varied choice are all brilliant. I am a perfectionist myself and believe me you cannot fault this place. The hosts are so welcoming, and give their very best to help you, the home grown fruits are wonderful and always varied at breakfast each day. The full English Breakfast is to die for and is a must, so forget the calories just enjoy the freshly prepared, hot breakfast. Judy and Stuart are the nicest people you could ever wish to meet and we would not hesitate to stay here again and again, we are now on our 5th visit and prefer to stay here when we are visiting family in the area and now we would not stay anywhere else when in this part of Somerset. The whole place is perfection personified and so very clean too, absolutely spotless. Liongate and the owners deserve a Five Star Luxury Award. The kindness and consideration that is given to all visitors is wonderful, especially when you have an elderly relative in tow like we have!!!! Judy and Stuart cannot do enough for you and they take pride in every detail, it is a wonderful and relaxing place to stay and we would have no hesitation in reccommending anyone to this B&B. It was another brilliant find by us a while back and we now look forward to visiting again and again even when our relatives move to another part of Somerset. Thank you Judy and Stuart, keep up the good work and see you again very soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely so it does not matter which one you have plus all the bathrooms are lovely...

My husband and I stayed here on our way to Sidmouth - and what a find. Our room was lovely, it was large, spotlessly clean and aesthetically pleasing. The en-suite was particularly good and had a lovely double shower. Breakfast delicious and Judy and Stuart were fantastic hosts. I honestly could not fault anything, My only regret was I wasn't staying longer.

After quickly scanning TA for hotels in the Yeovil area for a hastily arranged Christening we decided on Liongate. What a brilliant choice. Stuart and Judy are the perfect hosts and we really did have everything we could have needed. We would not hesitate to stop here again if we are in the area. The easiest five star I've ever given.
