Whitecroft Farm B&B
Ranked #1 of 1 Pylle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Most B&B's are adequate, some are good, some are even very good but very few are Excellent - this is one of them !!
We stayed for one night to visit the Showground and picked Whitecroft Farm on the strength of other reviews and we were not disappointed. Hard to find any fault and we look forward to staying again ( but longer next time ! ). Thank you Jo.

My wife and myself were visiting the Shepton Mallet Classic Bike Show as we do every year. We have stayed at numerous B&Bs in the area most very good some in need of improvement especially in the cold weather.

We decided to try Whitecroft Farm because of it's reviews and were not disappointed, we liked the location to the showground being close to the main road but not close enough to be bothered by road noise. On arrival we had tea and cake and were made to feel welcome by Jo.

The room we were given was first class with a massive double bed, clean and neat and warm as it was February, we also liked the views across the open fields. There was tea making facitities with biscuits, modern quality TV and Wifi which we used with no problems. The bathroom was of a good size with the longest bath I've ever bathed in and no shortage of hot water, the shower was also very good and we loved the underfloor heating.

Breakfast was good, local products cooked to your liking, even a choice of hen or duck eggs from her own garden.

We can recommend the local Natterjack public house for a good meal at a fair price, also if you are visiting the showground and expect it to be busy try this route, from the B&B at the end of the drive turn right rather than left and go downhill for about 1/4 mile then turn left through some country roads that will bring you out behind the showground to a main road, then turn left. We found this avoids all the queing from the opposite direction.

Overall a really good B&B that we shall return to next year.

We stayed at this b & b for one night as we were visiting family in the area. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and had tea and home made cake in the guest lounge. We had a comfortable night and a very nice breakfast made with local produce. 

We had not stayed in a B& B for many, many years but this has made us rethink!

We selected this B&B mainly because of the proximity to The Royal Bath & West Showground but also based on the other reviews. It was definitely good choice. The host - Jo, was lovely and very helpful. The room was superb, spacious and very clean. We've been 'upgraded' to the family room. The bed was very comfortable and warm. Breakfast fantastic - sausages made from pigs bred by the owners - delicious. The B&B is situated ~45 minutes drive from Bath, and ~30 mins from Stourhead House and Garden. There are way more sites but those were the the two places we visited during the short weekend. Make sure to pin the location on the map of your SatNav, as the post code will drive you close to the B&B but not directly to it (see google maps).

Just spent three days on business in Shepton Mallet. We usually stay in large 4/5 star hotels in this country and overseas, but this time I spent sometime reading the reviews on Tripadviser.
The reviewers were NOT exagerating this B&B is absolutely Fabulous starting with the owner Jo who could`nt do more for her guests if she tried. If you like beautiful, clean and well planned rooms, wonderful breakfasts with everything home sorced including her own baked bread you will love this place as we did.

We stayed at Whitecroft B&B on Wednesday this week and I cannot recommend it highly enough - in a lovely part of the world, the B&B has been beautifully created by Jo and her family - spotlessly clean, perfectly presented - but really, that's just the bricks & mortar and window dressing - its Jo that sets Whitecroft B&B way, way above the rest.

She is welcoming from the moment you make your booking until the moment you leave - nothing is too much trouble from the coffee and cake on arrival (- we had the BEST homemade banana cake ever!) - to the time she takes to recommend local restaurants and things to do to make sure your stay with her is ideal, to the PERFECT breakfast in the morning.

When I head back in that direction there is no where else I'd want to stay - Thanks so much, Jo!

Room Tip: Jo has 3 rooms - single, twin & family and each is as beautiful and as peaceful as each other

Everything about this beautiful B&B was exactly right. Its decor, hospitality, surroundings, beautiful breakfast were all great. Easy to get to in a wonderful part of somerset this would be the perfect base for holidays or staying at events at the Bath and West Showground. I booked quite late to go to New Wine and Jo the owner couldn't have been more helpful. The room is provided with everything you will need including fruit and herb tea and wonderful cookies. I was greeted with fresh tea and homemade cakes and the breakfast is one of the best English breakfasts I have ever had, with locally sourced eggs, bacon and sausages, homemade jam and marmalade etc. Very good value for money and I would stay there again if I am in the area.
