On arrival at Slipper Cottage, Sue welcomed us with tea and home-made cake in her comfortable lounge.

We stayed for 3 nights in the premium room. It had an en-suite with a bath and a luxuriously efficient shower. Ample towelling in soft green and pink contrasted pleasantly with the two-toned grey bathroom. Indeed, Sue's refined taste was evident throughout the cottage. And, at her recommendation, we greatly enjoyed relaxed dinners at the King's Arms, just opposite.

Then at breakfast, Sue and Pat provided a feast; generous portions of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, juices, croissants and a superbly cooked meal.
Whilst serving, Pat would chat to us; he has a wealth of anecdotes on Montacute, Somerset and everything in general.

When, at short notice, we wished to extend, our hosts re-scheduled their timetable, allowing us an extra night in the same room.
We left as friends, clutching a huge bag, full of damsons from the abundant garden.

Thank you Sue and Pat; your warm hospitality perfected our stay and we thoroughly recommend you for a relaxing visit to this wonderful part of Somerset.

This has to be one of the most amazing Bed and Breakfast places to stay. The hosts were so welcoming nothing was too much trouble. Our room had everything in it that you could have wanted, from a selection of DVD's to a fist aid kit ! Tea and coffee AND hot chocolate, not to mention an ironing board .The breakfasts set us up for the day, or the wedding that we were attending in this quaint village. So really top marks Pat and Sue, we will be telling all our chums.

A warm welcome from friendly and helpful hosts topped by a tastefully decorated room and lovely garden set in a picture postcard village! Sumptuous breakfasts at the B&B and excellent pub (King's Arms) a short stroll away for a fine dinner. Montacute is a great base for walking, visiting NT properties and gardens and other attractive small towns nearby. Although set in the centre of the village we were not bothered by traffic at all. Less crowded than the Cotswolds and great for a short break.

This friendly B&B was as enjoyable this year as it was in 2015. The hosts are always helpful and nothing seems too much trouble. Clean, spacious rooms. Fabulous full English breakfast!! Great garden with lots of birds and wildlife.
Slipper Cottage is situated in a beautiful village which is full of old English charm and so very peaceful. Ideal B&B and place to use as a base for walks or touring.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter what room you have. Even those overlooking the street are good views as the street is such a quaint place.
