We went for a couple of days to Somerset and were looking for a last-minute romantic quiet place to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was exactly what we were looking for. Manor and Ann were great hosts - with helpful tips on how to enjoy the local area, friendly and approachable manner which at the same time left us the space to enjoy the privacy of the Coleridge Suite.
The room itself was large, quiet and beautifully done-out. It had an olde-worlde feeling that was nicely done, it made us comfortable. All the facilities - hairdryer, iron/ironing board, television/DVD player, sofa and armchair, books to read were complimented by a tea-tray with lovely cookies, chocolates, fresh milk and different types of tea/coffee. We had our own key to come and go, which made it feel private. The bathroom was outside the bedroom, but a separating curtain to the main house gave sense of own space.
Breakfasts were done according to personal choice (with a menu-selection sheet to be filled the day before). The cooked breakfast was delicious, and getting up in the morning was a pleasure when we had the whole spread to look forward to.
The local area is beautiful, with lots of walks, mountain bike trails, pretty picturesque villages, thatched tea-rooms, walks by the sea.
Great for a short break, a getaway, a chance to spoil yourselves. We'll definitely be recommending it to friends and families (but not too many people, because we want it to be available when we go back next time!).
