Causeway Cottage

Reviewed 27 July 2013

We stayed three nights bed and breakfast and found it to be a peaceful idyll in a rural corner of Somerset, but convenient for the M5.

Could not fault the quality of the food and enjoyed Lesley's tea and home made cake in the garden under the apple tree.

Would certainly recommend Causeway Cottage unreservedly, and we hope to return in September.

We have just spent 3 nights at Causeway Cottage in the green room which looks out onto the beautiful garden. Lesley and Robert are very welcoming; on arrival making us tea and homemade cake for us to sit and enjoy in the garden, which they did everyday when we returned from a day out. Breakfast was really tasty, all local produce and Lesley's homemade bread and preserves. They are so helpful, helping to plan our days out and routes to use. A fantastic place, its like home from home, one highly recommended and we hope to visit again sometime.

Room Tip: The green room has a beautiful view of the garden.

We had a most enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage. Its setting and gardens are idyllic and tranquil. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home and it really did feel like a home from home. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment of it. Lesley and Robert are perfect hosts and Lesley's cooking is superb. We will certainly be returning in the future. This is an absolute gem!

My three night stay at Causeway Cottage was a delight from beginning to end . Lesley and Robert are the most welcoming hosts you could possibly meet and nothing is too much trouble from providing tea and delicious cake on returning from our outing's each day to informing us of places of specific interest to my friend and myself. As for breakfast and dinner it was all superb; delicious home made bread of different varieties, ample fruit and anything Lesley cooked was truly delicious. Lesley's cuisine was superb and, being a keen cook myself, I came home inspired with her own wonderful recipe books. The room was comfortable and very clean with a magnificent view of West Buckland church. I don't believe I could have a more enjoyable nor gastronomic stay anywhere else. I will definitely be returning to Causeway Cottage and will be recommending it to my friends .

I only stayed for one night owing to my dog having an overnight stay in the local specialist vet centre, but I'll be going again for longer. This is a beautiful house in a picturesque area and Lesley and Robert were the perfect hosts. My room was cosy and spotlessly clean and the bed was the best I have ever slept in. Breakfast was like a banquet and filled me up for the rest of the day. Highly recommended.

This was our first visit and we were bowled over by the warm welcome and the beautiful setting. Robert and Lesley were so accommodating and hospitable. There was such comfort and warmth, our room was spacious and tastefully furnished. The view from the window delightful with birds and rabbits in abundance! Breakfast was excellent with something for every taste and nothing seemed too much trouble. We thoroughly recommend this as easy to find, a perfect base for sightseeing or as a peaceful retreat.

Room Tip: Ask Lesley - she really wants the best for her visitors
