Cliff and Tricia were the perfect hosts, attentive without being intrusive. The room (we stayed in the Porlock room) was superb, exeptionally clean with super personal touches (won't say what as it would spoil the surprise), the ensuite bathroom was new and sparklingly clean. The breakfasts were fantastic, with local produce beautifully cooked and presented: we had a different one every day, each as good as the last (don't miss the porridge!) The location was great, right underneath Dunster castle, but just far enough from the High Street not to suffer from a noise problem. We stayed for 3 nights and we left feeling as if we had been relaxing on holiday for a fortnight. Advice - take slippers or socks as the hardwood floors can be a bit chilly on the feet :) We will be booking again very soon.
