“Lovely weekend break”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stayed for two nights at Yallands farmhouse and we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the " Granary " room which was spacious but still cosy. Good facilities especially the bathroom and the bed was very comfortable .Chris and Karen made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was very good . The farmhouse is located in the middle of a housing estate but don't let this put you off because due to the gardens and driveway you forget where you are and it is very quiet . Within 10 minutes walk you can catch the park and ride bus into Taunton. Yallands has great character and is convenient to all that Taunton has to offer. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: The Granary room is ideal for 3 people

We stayed for 3 nights in August whilst touring the west country. Yallands is tucked away in a modern housing estate, as a sort of relic of past times. Our first impression was very good and this was confirmed during our stay. Chris and Karen, our hosts, were very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, with a good bathroom, a comfortable bed, wifi and tea and coffee. The breakfast was very good with a large choice including full english, cereals, toast and marmalade. We didn't try the evening meals because you have to book them in advance.
You can walk to the city centre from Yallands or take a bus. There's a nice pub within a 10 minute walk from the B & B.
Yallands is a very pleasant B & B and can be recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting friends who live nearby and recommended Yellands to us. We were warmly greeted by Karen on arrival and given the key to our room. We stayed in The Tudor Room on the 1st floor. The room was spacious and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a bath and shower. The breakfasts were freshly cooked with a choice of fruit, yogurts, cereals and any combination of full English breakfast. The homemade marmalade was excellent if you had room for it. It was nice to have a chat with our hosts Karen and her husband Chris after breakfast and the breakfast room had a very friendly feel to it. The farmhouse also has a lovely garden with tables and chairs for the summer months. Would stay here again when in Taunton.

I don't normally leave reviews but owners Chris and Karen are such wonderful hosts that I felt compelled to write this one! Convenient location, comfortable beds, home cooked food and very hospitable hosts - what more could you ask for? Superfast broadband to homemade marmalade, locally brewed beer to apples and pears from the garden! It's all at Yallands, most definitely a B&B to experience to see how it should be done!

We selected Yallands as our central base to see the surrounding attractions of the South West of England. We stayed 7 wonderful nights. Our hosts Chris and Karen are exceptional and Karen is an excellent cook for both breakfasts and a variety of dinners. Chris keeps the farmhouse, rooms and surrounds in very good condition. If you have a car this type of accommodation is just perfect, it is in a quiet setting away from the noise of busy roads. We also enjoyed many a good conversation with Chris and Karen and thoroughly recommend them as top class hosts.

Room Tip: We were able to view all the rooms and found them all to be of a very high standard

Had a fantastic few nights at Yallands. We had such a warm welcome on arrival and the service from Karen and Chris was fantastic. Karen even cleaned one of our sons baby grows!

Lovely breakfast too. Will stay there next time we are in Taunton.

I have stayed at Yallands Farmhouse regularly for several months and it is an excellent B & B that goes the extra mile to ensure your stay is comfortable. When I first stayed here Chris & Karen made me feel so welcome I felt like a close friend who they had known for years. The rooms I stay in are always serviced to an excellent standard and if I ever need anything Chris or Karen are always there to help. The breakfast is excellent as Karen (and sometimes Chris!!!) will cook exactly what you want rather than having to choose from a set menu. Karen’s evening meals are also of an excellent standard as it is home cooked food on a par with what you would find in a top class restaurant. I have found many extra little details that really add to making a comfortable stay such as a soft chair in the room, a quiet room and a clothes brush. Overall, this is an excellent B & B.

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
