Reviewed 1 August 2014

Relaxing, stunning, food was exceptional and so welcoming. Food heaven and comfort heaven. Can't wait to go again with friends. So close to Taunton and the Somerset levels, brilliant for walks or just relaxing locally.

Because we live in the same village, it is hard to justify staying the night here but that is our loss! We can only imagine how great it must be to wake up in such a fantastic historic house where you feel immediately at home.

The venue is amazing and complemented by lovely food, attentive and friendly hosts, and great customer service. We ate the 3-course dinner mid-week. There were 3 choices for each course all prepared from seasonal and locally-sourced produce (including the garden at Langford). Everything was freshly-prepared and beautifully presented.

Compare the high quality food here with a similarly priced 3 courses in the many restaurants and gastro-pubs - and there is no competition. Even if, like us, you live locally and can only eat here rather than sleep, come and enjoy a great experience.

We were here with all the family for an 80th birthday celebration recently. Not only was this a stunning setting, but the atmosphere was relaxed, the food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to provide. Thoroughly recommended.

Set in the middle of the Somerset countryside this beautiful country home will surpass any expectation you dare to set. Peaceful, elegant, cozy, relaxng, where to start?

This is a foodies heaven. If you stay for a weekend don't plan on eating anywhere else, you won't want to!!! We were glad we took our bikes and tennis rackets (yes it has a tennis court too) we needed them to work up an appetite for the next meal.

Will we return? You bet ya. Sad thing is, if we went back next week, it wouldn't be soon enough.

We stayed here for the weekend and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was extremely relaxing, the food was excellent and the manor house has been refurbished extremely well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to other people and I will definitely book another trip!

Just come back to London after 2 days of bliss. Excellent accommodation in this refurbished old manor house with just 6 rooms. All beautiful - we checked them all out. Food and service from Ollie and Rebecca was top class. They even found us Mac with his Merc to show us all the sights of the Somerset levels - Montacute, Barrington, Tintinhull... So laid back, relaxing, this break was exactly what we needed to get away from it all. Sorry to return to the Smoke. Go there. Now!

Room Tip: All rooms are airy and quiet.

This very posh “restaurant with rooms” was recommended to us by local friends. It was suggested I would love it, and I did! We were welcomed like family and indeed the whole visit, we felt like we had suddenly been transplanted into a much more up-market version of our own home. We were shown all the rooms on check in – they are all lovely, I would have been very happy in all of them. The house is gloriously old but it has been thoughtfully and tastefully modernized, and is set in beautiful, restful grounds.

Our friends joined us for the evening meal which was superb – fresh, local ingredients all beautifully cooked in a kitchen which I had been invited into earlier, and was a pleasure to explore. At the end of the night we waved our guests off, and locked up the front door for the night as if at home!

Breakfast was equally fabulous the following morning and it was a real wrench to leave and continue on our journey to the West Country.

Thoroughly recommended.
