“No run of the Mill B&B here.”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

My wife and I stayed with Sue and Charles for 2 nights recently after flying in from Australia and driving for a few hours to get there. Arrived late and Sue booked us in to the local pub for dinner, and to help out, carried our bags upstairs for us. We stayed in room 1 with great view the breakfast was brilliant. All sorts of local travel tips from our hosts , made the stay even better. Going forward Wi-Fi would be good.

Sue and Charles really care about their guests and provide a service that they, rightly, should be very proud of. The warm welcome with excellent afternoon tea and cake is wonderful after a long journey. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and there are lots of attention to detail that make such a big difference.The Millstream cottage location is great, the rooms are great and Sue and Charles owning and running it are exceptional hosts.

The welcome and service from Sue and Charles was above and beyond anything we have experienced in a B and B before. The cottage is beautiful inside and out. Our room was so comfortable and clean, the breakfast delicious. We will definately be returning here, we had a wonderful stay.

We were in the area for a wedding so decided to stay for 4 nights. We had the whole of the Millstream Cottage to ourselves, which was wonderful. Susan and Charles are an absolute delightful couple and our granddaughters loved them.
The cottage was spotless and so comfortable, I would never stay anywhere else if in the area again.
Breakfast was an array of juices, cereals, fresh fruits and a wonderful fresh cooked breakfast.
Nothing was too much trouble and they were so good with the girls, everything worked like clockwork everyday.
If you decide to stay at Millstream Cottage you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: They are all good.

We stayed at Millstream Cottage for 6 nights in August as part of a longer vacation in England, and had a truly wonderful time. Sue and Charles were beyond helpful, giving us advice on what to see, where to eat, how to get to different places and so on. Sue even took us to collect our hired bikes in Minehead! Nothing was too much trouble and we easily felt at home.
The tea and cake we were treated upon arrival was exquisite, and so were the breakfasts. Our rooms were very comfortable and the guest-lounges were filled with books and brochures about the lovely village and the sights nearby.
We can absolutely recommend Millstream Cottage!

We stayed at Millstream Cottage for 2 nights in August and had a wonderful time. Sue and Charles were amazing hosts and the tasty cake and cup of tea on arrival was much appreciated. Plenty of choice for breakfast and all delicious! Our room was immaculately clean and beautifully furnished and the bed extremely comfortable - we would not hesitate to recommend staying here. Thanks for making our weekend special!

We stayed for four nights, 22-26 July 2013 and were so impressed by everything that Charles and Sue did for us. As others have mentioned, there was a friendly welcome with tea and cake on arrival and warm attention throughout. We had a king sized room with on-suite bathroom which was fine; the bed very comfortable and the range of pillows excellent. Breakfast was excellent with Sue's home-made sausages and marmalade.

Overall, a very pleasant and relaxing experience and a great place to stay in this lovely medieval town.

Highly recommended
