“Great Peaceful Farmhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

We stayed for three nights at the farmhouse and we can say that the experience was wonderful, warm and welcoming. Chris and Karen ensured that we had everything that we needed. The B&B is full of character and the room was very comfortable, a quiet location too. Breakfast was well cooked with plenty to eat and choose from, we will certainly return and would recommend this lovely farmhouse to our family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the orchard room and it was very quiet.

What a wonderful New Year we had. Chris and Karen are the very best hosts, and make you feel very welcome. The rooms are lovely, with a very restful and calm feel to them. The beds are very comfortable, and the ensuite facilites are exceptionally clean. Karen's cooking is fantastic, both breakfasts and evening meals, and we all went home feeling well fed, well looked after and wanting to return very quickly. In fact, my sons prefer Karen's cooking to their mum's !!!
We cannot recommend this B&B enough! We will be back very soon.

Thank you very much
Tim, Helen, Ryan and Joe

Room Tip: All rooms in this B&B are excellent.

If ever you’re in the Taunton area and you want to experience the true meaning of hospitality then I suggest that you book a stay at Yallands. At its heart are Chris and Karen who manage to create a home from home atmosphere amongst the delightful surrounds of a wonderful 16th century farmhouse. Nothing has been too much trouble since the day I arrived and over a particularly lengthy stay they have personally welcomed me back each week as if I were part of the family.
The rooms are well appointed and have décor and charm befitting a country farmhouse. The following morning’s breakfast can be almost anything you request, with a hearty full English being top of most people’s choice. Come the evening however, there is also another delight in store as Chris and Karen now offer an extensive dinner menu to suit all tastes and budgets. With a range of locally sourced products, Karen manages to provide her guests with wonderfully home cooked food for which I was extremely grateful during my time there.
During my time in Taunton I noted that a lot of people were returning to Yallands after already having stayed in the past and I could clearly see why, because they were arriving as guests but leaving as friends.

Room Tip: Book early!

Yallands is a lovely 16c farmhouse with character. This combined with the homemade cooking and friendly atmosphere from the owners, Chris and Karen, made it a most enjoyable stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Owners Chris & Karen Ward look forward to welcoming you to Yallands Farmhouse - our delightful Grade II Listed building dating back over 400 years, which sat amidst acres of green fields for several centuries. The expansion of Taunton during the 1970's led to new housing being built on the former farmland. The farmhouse, with its secluded garden, small orchard, and stone barn was left intact. As a result, Yallands has become an unexpected 'oasis' of peace and tranquility within a modern corner of Somerset's county town. Yallands offers self-assessed 4 star accommodation in Taunton, Somerset. The house is situated 1 1/2 miles from Taunton town centre, on the north-western edge of the town, and is easily reached from the M5 motorway - junction 25 (4 miles), and junction 26 (6 miles). For those who are reliant on public transport a local bus, with a stop at the foot of the garden, provides a frequent daytime service to and from the town centre. The lovely town centre provides excellent shopping and county cricket, horse racing, golf, theatre and other leisure facilities are all available nearby. Taunton has a good selection of restaurants and wine bars to suit most tastes and the surrounding countryside offers many delightful pubs which serve excellent food. There is ample car parking space in the private grounds together with lockable cycle storage in the stables. Why not enjoy relaxing in our gardens in the summer or sitting in front of our open fire in those cold winter months? Yallands is open all year round and - whether you are a tourist or a business visitor - you can be assured of a warm welcome and our individual attention.Yallands is particularly convenient for Taunton School, The Somerset Heritage Centre & Nuffield Hospital. ... more   less
