“A quiet, comfortable place”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

We arrived at this lovely house in a beautiful garden, several hours earlier than expected. Andy took it in gracious stride, coming up with coffee and cookies in short order. The queen sized bed (very comfortable), the nice ensuite, and view of the garden made it a very pleasant place to stay. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. One of the best B&B's we have stayed in, anywhere!

A lovely warm welcome with a cup of tea after a motorway journey was the first thing that impressed me! The owner, Sue, had given me a double en-suite for single occupancy, which was much appreciated, at a reduced rate. A lovely light and airy room, with traditional and contemporary features. Very cosy and clean. I was attending a wedding locally, so after the hectic day, it was a joy to return to such a quiet bed for the night. All very comfortable. Lovely in the morning!

Taylard House is set in beautiful gardens and this is their home, with lots of interesting family mementos. Everything was perfect, but as a constructive comment, maybe tea/coffee making facilities would be welcome for the morning.

We stayed for one night as part of a wedding group. The owners, Andy and Sue, could not have been more accommodating considering our late confirmation of booking, and non-arrival at appointed time due to motorway delays etc - they took it all in their stride and were very welcoming and understanding.

Andy provides a perfect (very late) taxi service if required. Thanks !

The house is very much a family house with family photographs and items of interest on the walls: RAF ancestry, AC Cobras and university graduations abound !

The bedroom was large, with comfortable bed and suitable bedware - not too hot, windows openable for a refreshing breeze. Electric shower perhaps a little weak and quite powerful essential oil aroma in the room. The decor is traditional but suits the ambiance.

Breakfast, cooked to order, was excellent and plentiful and the hosts were amusing, and very willing to engage in conversation despite obviously being busy.

Ample parking, great surroundings, lovely garden - and excellent price. We would definitely return.

This B&B is a beautiful house standing in a lovely garden. If you enjoy waking up feeling that you are on holiday, even if you are working away from home, then stay here! Food delicious-breakfast and evening meals, hosts very friendly and helpful, bed incredibly comfortable and shops only a short stroll away. Also some lovely walks to be had from the B&B. I will definitely return-next time for a holiday!

We stayed at Taylard House for a night a couple of weeks ago, the first time we had stayed in a B&B with our 15 month old daughter and they were so, so welcoming and accommodating, letting me pop into the kitchen to warm baby food, keep milk in the fridge etc etc. The breakfast was outstanding and I would definitely recommend this B&B and would go back if I needed to stay in that area again.

My parents, brother and I stayed here at the weekend as it was my son's wedding in a nearby village. Taylard House is the archetypal English house constructed of local stone with a gravel drive and lovely garden when our hosts served us drinks. Sue and Andy, the hosts, are most welcoming, friendly and are the personification of English hospitality. The interior of the house is charming with many items of family memorabilia and furniture. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and we had a wide choice of dishes.
Staying here made a wonderful wedding day a superb experience to remember.
