“Simply the best!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

My partner and I have just returned from our 5th stay at Steps in two years and as always came home refeshed, relaxed and with more memories of a lovely part of the country.....
Our hosts Julia and Tony instantly made us welcome as always and although never intrusive we know that they are around and a mine of information regarding places to go and things worth seeing (and booking a table at restaurants)
After a great nights sleep in the incredibly comfy bed you wake to the sound of birds singing and head to the farmhouse for a superb breakfast of cereals, fruit salad, fresh toast (with Julias home made jams) followed by either the full English, kippers or perfect porridge, all washed down with juice and fresh coffee... sets you up for the day!
Perfect place for peace and quiet with the real world a short drive away!

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

My brother and I were visiting Minehead and stayed overnight after sorting out some family business. The proprietors of this B & B could not have done more to make sure our stay was comfortable. The room was warm and bed comfy. It was exceptionally clean with plenty of tea and coffee making facilities. I had a good nights sleep followed by a lovely filling breakfast, just the thing to set you off the next morning! I would not hesitate to recommend Steps to my friends and if I need to stay in the area again, will certainly stay again - I just hope there will be room! Full marks to Tony and Julia :)

My sister and myself had family business in Minehead and thought that we would need to stay for the night to get everything sorted. (ironically we got everything sorted a lot quicker than we expected and wouldn't actually have needed to stay over)
We selected this place off the website and are glad we did
A lovely place to stay which was made all the better by the friendly attention and service from the owners for whom nothing was too much trouble
The room was absolutely perfect with plenty of drinks making facilities and the breakfast absolutely delicious
The only small criticism I have is the rather tight angle of the car park which needs some care to negotiate but this would be nit-picking
All in all a great place to stay and amazingly quiet considering it is on the main road

My colleague and I stayed at Steps as we were visiting The West Somerset Railway which was by at Washford and we found Julia and Tony friendly and helpful. When we checked in at 6.00 we were offered tea and coffee which was brought to our room (no 4) outside the main house in the converted barn. The room was clean and comfortable with a good shower room and twin beds (to which we both slept well after visiting Porlock),extra heating from a small heater and complimentary tea and coffee. The only draw back with our room is to mind your head when you walk in the front door (I bumped it twice as there is no sign above the door to remind you).

Early in the morning they very kindly arranged our breakfast for 8.00 to which the food was very good (fresh fruit,choice of cereals,selection of jams and cooked full English).
The cark park is good and the garden is pretty.

A delight to find this hidden gem. Comfortable, friendly and superb facilities. A warm welcome, delicious breakfast and lots of helpful hints about the area. Fresh milk in the room was a bonus - no horrible little cartons. Was worried about the bed as I have a bad back, but needn't have been - an exceptionally comfortable night.

Another year on, and we returned to Steps for another weekend break. Absolutely as good as last year. Won't repeat last year's review. Suffice to say that everything is just as good as previous stays.

We stayed here in August for 9 nights after a family wedding in St. Audries and arn't we glad we did. Our room was very spacious, we normally get in each others way but not this time, plenty of wardrobe space and places to put things, heaven for me as i normally take all but the kitchen sink. Room and bathroom were extremely clean, comfortable bed with towels and bedding changed every few days. Attention to detail was superb, how may rooms have you stayed in where there is no mirror big enough to see what you look like from the waist down before you walk out the door, well this one had so well done for that, we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious, lots of variety and Julia cooks and exceptional Full English. Fantastic area for walking enthusiasts so many paths and stunning scenery. The West Somerset Railway was a lovely experience jumping on and off to see some wonderful towns & villages along the way. Many places of interest to visit and a trip to Glastonbury was well worth it.
The service we received from Tony & Julia was second to none they couldnt have been more helpful & welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend Steps as a wonderful, get away relaxing holiday.
