Primrose House
Ranked #2 of 11 Bruton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We stayed on a very hot July Saturday to avoid driving home after a family party nearby and were surprised to find we were the only people there. The King Alfred room was very comfortable, clean and quiet and the house has a great view. We overslept so missed breakfast but Devi and Helen provided coffee and croissant. B&B seemed to be a fairly new venture for them and they certainly deserve a lot of success.

A warm welcome awaited us, as we visited for just one night, to attend a family funeral. We were visiting following a personal recommendation, and their description was spot on. A wonderful, comfortable and spotless room, with tea and coffee facilities, including fresh milk for the morning cuppa, and a private bathroom, again spotlessly clean and fresh. I awake early, and sat watching the sun rise over the Mendips, the view was to die for. Breakfast was wonderful, and our only regret was that we had to leave after just one night. We'll be back!

Our stay at Primrose House was great. Hospitality, food and ambience first class.
We only hesitate in writing a review because it was so good we worry that we will not be able to book in next year as will be fully booked!!!!

As with other reviews, I was extremely happy with my visit to this fantastic B&B. The rooms,the breakfast and hospitality were of 5 star standard and I can't believe Primrose House is only rated 4 star silver!! I shall certainly stay again and maybe try some massage treatments next time.

We stayed here for the Glastonbury festival weekend, we were so pleased to find Primrose House AND the fact that the rooms etc are exactly as the website shows which doesn’t normally happen in my experience.

The stunning views and peaceful location made for a perfect retreat, Devi and Helen were so open and friendly, we can only say it is the best B&B experience we’ve had anywhere and genuinely would highly recommend a visit if you are in this great part of the country side.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cranmore room, everything you needed was here!

Hi Mathew,

Thanks, you guys were great fun and I felt jealous that we didn't go to the Glastonbury festival ourselves, but someone had to cook the breakfasts!! I hope you are well and recovered by now!

Kind regards Devi & Helen

Hidden away near Bruton, is a true hidden gem. The standard of the room was amazing, the care we recieved was excellent! The best breakfast ever. I would strongly recomend that you try this bed and breakfast if you are in the beautiful somerset countryside! Well worth a visit.

My partner & I were caught short for somewhere to stay around Bruton and came across Primrose House on TripAdvisor. Devi and Helen were very kind at short notice to let us stay for a couple of nights. What a surprise to find this little gem (not so little!) which comes complete with Gym AND spa therapy treatments from Helen. Breakfast was great, as was the rooms and hospitality! I could go on, but there is so much to say, so if you're thinking of somewhere to stay in and around Bruton then look no further! I'm glad I stumbled upon Primrose House, thank you Devi & Helen, I'll definitely be back when in the area again.
