Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2013

We stayed for 1 night while on a tour of the UK. Janet & Nigel were so friendly and helpful with tips and information for the rest of our trip.The B&B was absolutely beautiful, full of history. The room was very clean spacious a super comfortable. Our front room had a beautiful cottage garden view of the street. Pubs and other needs are within walking distance in a beautiful countryside village, wish we could spend more time.

Best B&B we've ever stayed in. Nigel and Janet were great hosts and couldn't do enough to make our short stay enjoyable. Room was clean and well equipped. Great position for pubs and cafes and great countryside and coastal walks. We will definetly be returning.

Janet & Nigel have to be the friendliest hosts we have come across, they couldn't do enough for us. We had the most wonderful stay with them and felt really at home. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great, you really must try Janets home made marmarlade for breakfast. Could have easily have stayed longer if it hadn't been for a rugby match!

The owners (Nigel & Janet) are welcoming, friendly and attentive to their guests needs. The rooms are very clean, extremely comfortable and have a homely atmosphere. And when it comes to breakfast, be hungry! Additionally, and unusually, Myrtle Cottage is dog friendly, which makes it ideal for those of you with a 'pooch' you don't want to leave at home (or worse, in kennels). Am looking forward to our next stay, already.

Only stayed one night and wish I could have stayed more, the owners Nigel & Janet were delightful, so friendly and welcoming, great breakfast and great recommendation for the Ship just up the road for dinner, Porlock and Porlock Weir are very lovely and worth a visit.

We stayed here for two nights at the start of our SW coast path adventure. From the time I phoned up to book until we left, Nigel and Janet could not have been more helpful. When I said "If you're sure it's not too much trouble" Nigel answered "That's what we're here for". If only everyone in the hospitality business had that ethos! Janet wears a permanent smile, both are incredibly welcoming and helpful, they make an excellent team and we felt we were treated like friends not paying guests.
The room and breakfast were excellent and the cottage is beautifully placed either to walk directly onto the SW coast path or catch a bus to Minehead or Lynmouth and walk back. The nearby pub The Ship (aka Top Ship) is also excellent.
