“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed here on our wedding night. Frances went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed (glass of champagne, fabulous vintage umbrella that thankfully was not needed in the end!) The location and views are absolutely second to none. We stayed in the studio room, which had everything one could possibly want or need. The breakfast is amazing and if we had not had to rush off to say goodbye to our wedding guests, we would have lingered in the beautiful gardens for much longer. This place has a five star rating for a reason...

Room Tip: The studio room offers additional privacy as it has it's own entrance.

We had booked the Swan well in advance for a wedding only to be advised 2 weeks before we were due to stay that as renovation work would take place the front of the hotel would be covered in scaffold and sheeting therefore the cathedral view room we had reserved would in fact no longer have a view !! We immediately looked for alternatives and can only say how delighted we were that by default we stayed at Stoberry House. Frances and Tim couldn't have been more welcoming, there's nothing more I can add about the breakfast other than everything that has already been said and more is true. We were in the Black Orchid room with fabulous views across the fields and cathedral. Yes it's further out of town but the benefits far out-way the inconvenience. We easily walked into Wells a couple of times and on the day of the wedding a taxi cost £4 so hardly breaking the bank. Family who have lived in the area for years visited and didn't even know the house existed and were impressed and amazed. We could not recommend highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to return.

This was our fourth visit in as many years and we have booked already for next year. Our stay this year was from the 20th to 23rd June to coincide with the longest day of the year, enabling us to enjoy a glass of wine late in the evening, seated in the beautiful garden. In the distance a most impressive view of Wells Cathedral and beyond that Glastonbury Tor, as the Sun sets the garden lights glow, the last of the bees quieten and the ducks in the pond settle down, it is tranquil and perfect.
The word perfect does not only describe this scene but the house and service provided by Frances and Tim. The breakfast provided has no equal! Everything has been thought of, nothing missed throughout the rooms and property, it is a place that when your visit has ended you want to stay another day!
With so many places to visit in such a beautiful county and an excellent base to go back to at the end of the day, it is like visiting friends, something we look forward to each year and we would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: The rooms are all different and suit particular tastes, the one we stay in suits our taste perfectly...

We stumbled upon Stoberry House one Glastonbury weekend and loved it so much that we have returned on a number of occasions and each time the same very high standards have been met. Frances and Tim are so welcoming, the rooms are wonderfully laid out with lovely little touches. The breakfasts are second to none, make sure you don't eat too much the night before so that you take full advantage! The gardens are a treat to wander around and the views over Wells are breath-taking. This is not so much a B&B as a luxury retreat at such a reasonable price. I cannot recommend this place enough!!

You will not top the amazing customer service here, Frances will look after you with bells on! From start to finish every effort is made to make sure you have more than you need - whether it is the friendly welcome, incredible sumptuous breakfast, detailed information about what best to see and do or the bedside reading light (as well as the chocolate) on the pillow at bed turn down time - you will feel well catered for. The garden and surroundings are delightful and make you want to chill out

Afternoon tea in the garden, chocolates, fruit, flowers, biscuits and drinks in our room. Crispy white sheets, a comfy bed and fine views over the surrounding countryside. A delicious breakfast
of many tastes, this is fresh food at it's best, Francis the owner clearly proud of her spread and so she should be!
The garden, a plant lovers delight with seats to relax and enjoy it's form and then you see how well it blends into the surrounding parkland which is juxtaposed to the smallest city in England, Wells. The raised nature of the property and lake leads to stunning views of the city, the Cathedral showing it's dominance. It is only about an eight minute walk into the city with lots of interesting architecture and eateries.

It's late spring here in Washington, DC and a neighbor's gooseberry bush reminded me of the most excellent and relaxing 4 days we spent last July at Stoberry. Frances and Tim presented a magnificent range of experiences for us as we unwound after a week touring London at full speed. I'm still telling friends about the fox and rabbits at dusk, the sweeping views of Glastonbury Tor and Wells Cathedral at sunset, walks to town down quiet streets, and on and on. Oh and the gooseberry compote..... Stoberry is everything I wanted rural England to be. I wish this establishment the best and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: We found the Lady Hamilton room perfectly sized for two 6 foot plus guys.
