Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Beautiful setting, very comfortable and clean, perfect breakfast, friendly people. A lot of care and attention has been put into designing the rooms, the beds are very good and every detail is thought of without it being too over the top. Absolutely spot on, make this your first choice!

A really enjoyable stay! We were going to a wedding in the area and The Old Dairy was the perfect base. Before we arrived, communicating with Liz was really easy: she answered all our questions by email and even organised our transport to and from the wedding celebrations.

When we arrived, we got a warm welcome. We'd booked into the standard double but Liz put us in the four-poster room instead: lovely room with gorgeous en suite and beautiful views. The B&B rooms are in a separate building from the main house which meant that we could feel completely independent.

We had some free time during the day, so after a tasty breakfast, Liz and Steve gave us some tips (and a map!) for walks in the surrounding area and we were able to explore the Somerset countryside.

Overall, a really high-quality, professional B&B, but warm and friendly too.

A wonderful place to stay and enjoy the lovely countryside and hospitality. Liz and Steve are great hosts, they even took us out for the day to visit Dunster Castle. The house is very quaint with lots of original stone and wood beams and the English breakfast is awesome. We are so glad we chose to take a few days vacation away from London and could not have chosen a better place to stay

Room Tip: The Junior Suite on the top floor was spacious and the bed incredibly comfortable

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay here and look forward to seeing you again - maybe in the Spring for those stunning Azaleas and Rhododendron at Knightshayes National Trust.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We chose it as it was within striking distance of my mother's house in the Blackdown Hills but now we would choose it again simply for being the perfect place to stay for a relaxing break. Everything, from the bed linen to the breakfasts was top quality and the owners were just lovely. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby but, at the same time, in a very beautiful and peaceful part of the countryside. Can't wait to go back!

The Old Dairy is set in the most perfect location with gorgeous views, Mike & Liz were so welcoming & gave us a guided tour of the rooms, gardens & outbuildings. The rooms have lovely clean lines & sumptuous bedding & we really did wish that we were there for more than one night. Breakfast was delicious.

We decided to break up our long journey to Cornwall with a stopover....as it was bank holiday all the hotels were booked so we decided to book a b&b. I was a little apprehensive as we got near The Old Dairy as I've never stayed in a b&b before & wasn't sure what to expect. However as soon as we pulled up, all my concerns vanished. Liz met us & after a tour of the rooms, we had tea & ice cream in their beautiful garden with absolutely stunning views. We had a new family room in the main house, the beds were all full size, with the cosiest duvets & bed linens. We had a delicious meal in the local pub, recommended & booked by Liz. The breakfast was the best cooked breakfast I have ever eaten, followed by fruit from their garden. The b&b was exactly as described on the internet, Liz & Steve were extremely good hosts, so we will definitely return if we are ever in the area. Wishing Liz & Steve every success for their b&b, thank you.
