Reviewed 18 October 2013

There is nothing that Heidi and Pete haven't thought of to make their guests feel comfortable, this B and B ticks all the boxes. They're welcoming, friendly and the breakfast is as good as it gets. The rooms are top quality. Memorable.

This is a belated review as we were in Britain in May, 2013. However, it is also a well-deserved accolade to the owner of Stilegate Bed and Breakfast, Heidi, who was most hospitable and on arrival provided us with tea and the most delicious scones: the perfect welcome for greedy people. We had booked two rooms which turned out to be spacious and well-appointed. We can recommend the beds which were blissfully comfortable and distinctly not representative of that bête noir of travelling: the curiously lumpy and bouncy bed. Heidi also was most kind to my 93 year old father who had been to a World War 2 commemorative service a few days before we arrived at Stilegate. Our drive to Stilegate, near Minehead, was a revelation. We loved Exmoor, both for its natural beauty and for its rich literary associations. We were thrilled to drive through the village which was home to Coleridge’s enigmatic, and unwelcome, ‘Person from Porlock’. Thank you, Heidi: you have our award for the best (non-ageist) bed and breakfast which we experienced during our visit in May.

My Boyfriend and I were visiting my family for the weekend and stayed here, normally we are the sort of people who like an anonymity of a bigger hotel, and we had always avoided B&B type places in favour of these, however staying here was a lovely surprise. We stayed in a room with a great view, and it had everything you could possibly need, including a bathroom stocked with anything and everything you may have forgotten for your stay, which was a lovely touch. Everything was very clean and tidy and very comfortable. Our hosts were very friendly even waiting in for us as we were arriving quite late on the Friday night, and they were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The Breakfasts were fantastic, and so lovely that they were made to order. Over all this was a great stay, with the only fault I could possibly find being that on one night the mini fridge in the room did wake me up, but I would hardly consider that much of a negative in any way, as it was lovely to have the mini fridge available. A lovely stay and somewhere I would defiantly recommend. Many thanks :)

Dear K&S Thank you for your feedback. You are welcome to turn the small fridge off if you find it a nuisance and I can give you fresh milk early in the morning. It was great to meet you both and if you in West Somerset again visiting your folks please call in to see us. Best Wishes Heidi

We had a two day break in this area, first visit. Couldn't have had a better place to stay, both Peter and Heidi were welcoming, friendly and informative. They told us of a lovely local beach to visit which was less than 5 minutes away, a nice walk just before bedtime. The bed was SO comfortable and breakfast was not only a feast for the eyes but lived up to the beautiful presentation. I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to other couples.

We arrived to a beautiful house and was welcomed straight away by the lovely Heidi, she showed us around her lovely home then showed us our stunning room.
We only stayed one night for a friends wedding but we had the warmest of welcomes and once we were ready to leave for the wedding Heidi very kindly offered to take us to the wedding which we thought was very kind!
The room was great and we had a very good night sleep.
There was a huge choice for breakfast and it was beautiful, everything about our stay was just perfect.
Definitely a place to visit, we will certainly be back again :)

Stayed for a 2 night mini-break with our dog. Room was lovely and it was great having the extra porch space with the fridge and microwave. Used the guest pass to use the pool and beach at St Audries Holiday Park - both almost deserted. Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. Little yard area outside room wasn't secure for dog, but suggested it would have been helpful so maybe they have secured it now! Lovely walking in the Quantocks.

We had a lovely stay with Heidi although we only stayed the one night to attend a wedding, we wish we could have stayed longer. We received a very warm welcome and was offered tea and coffee upon our arrival. Our room was clean and fresh with an excellent view. There was a variety for breakfast from cereal to full cooked, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Hope you see you again.
