We have stayed at Arden Cottage on many occasions and I can honestly say that standards are still as good as the first magical occasion we experienced Paul and Janes hospitality. The cottage is immaculate the rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the breakfast is extensive and delicious. The hosts are very welcoming and it is more like staying with friends than merely another B & B. I cannot recommend enough that you give it a try if you want to stay anywhere in the West Country particularly Somerset or Devon as it is ideally placed geographically to explore from.

Thank you very much for another review. At least we know we're doing it right when Guests chose to come and stay again.

It was great to catch up on your news of family and to hear how your plans are going for your coming trip. We now feel like we are having friends come and stay with us. Easy conversation, relaxed atmosphere and fun.

We wish you both a happy trip to NZ shortly and do keep in touch. Have a great Christmas with the family.

This year my mom and I wanted a holiday in the UK and we wanted to take our dog Lana. After searching the internet we came across Jane and Paul's website and we booked a room immediately.
When we arrived, we were welcomed by Paul who offered us a cup of tea and some cake and Lana could run around in the garden or stay with us. It was just like being at home for us and for Lana as well!
Paul and Jane told us where we could eat and where dog's are allowed. Everyday they gave us some tips what we could do with Lana and which places we definitely had to see!
We stayed for a whole week and had the time of our life! It was a wonderful vacation and every evening it was fun to come "home" to Arden cottage.
Even Lana felt a little sad when it was time to go home!
We are definitely going back!

Thank you Jane and Paul for a lovely stay,
from Annick, Jill and Lana!

Room Tip: the family room is perfect if you're staying for a whole week. You have a lot of space to put al...

Hi to you all and thank you for your lovely review.

We are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here with us at Arden Cottage.

We must admit to thoroughly enjoying your company and our chats each evening about the places you had fun visiting. It was like having friends to stay. So thank you for your good company.

Lana was a real lady too, so quiet, gentle and easy to have around.

We look forward to meeting you all again when you come back to England for another holiday.

We chose this B & B as stated dog friendly and knew it was the right choice the minute we were greeted... with tea and cake. Our dog has lost a back leg and found some of the floors difficult to grip, so without even asking, Jane rolled out extra carpets for him. They even booked us into a local 'Dog friendly' pub for our first evening meal.
The room was perfect and exceedingly comfortable, breakfast offered a large selection of high quality, locally sourced, produce. Jane and Paul are so hospitable, you couldn't wish for better hosts. I am only sorry that we didn't arrange to spend the whole of our four nights with them in Williton, as there are many places of interest within easy driving distance. I know where we are staying if in the area again!

I don't usually bother with reviews, but there is always an exception! Paul and Jane are the most friendly welcoming people you could wish to meet, they made our short stay wonderful.The cottage is warm,comfortable and inviting, the breakfast sets you up for the day.Bob,our dog was treated like their own with no holds barred.........had the run of the house.

if you want to feel like you are at home,enjoy being well fed,and want to be treated like one of the family, dont bother looking elsewhere,stay here at Arden Cottage.Its a brilliant base to view the most exciting area of outstanding beauty around Exmoor.

Marie,Harry and Bob would like to say thanks to Jane and Paul and we certainly will return at some point.

Room Tip: Dont miss the english breakfast!

Thank you very much for writing this lovely review, especially as you don't normally do them.

We are pleased to hear that you felt comfortable and at home with us, as this is what we hope to achieve with all our Guests. It just so happened that our other Guests were easy going as well so that we could all enjoy having a chat over a glass of wine.

Bob (your Cocker Spaniel) was the most chilled out dog we've had for a long time and Lana (the Golden Retriever, who belonged to our other Guests enjoyed having someone to play ball with).

We would welcome a return visit. from you all.

Arrived after a long cycle ride to an exmoor beach, and Jane and Paul could not have been more welcoming. I don't want to raise expectations too high, but when I arrived I was handed a slice of lemon drizzle cake and a cup of much needed tea. Friendly people, big garden, and a historic house. This is where to go if you're in need of a bed in williton for the night

We were only too happy to be able to offer you a well deserved cup of tea and cake, whilst sitting in the garden chatting.

We have just had an amazing three night stay at this bed and breakfast. Jane and Paul were so friendly and helpful to us and suggested some great things to do during our stay. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts fantastic. Recommend Jane's granola and smoothies! Our dog Monty was made to feel so welcome and he had a great stay too. Thanks also to their lovely niece Lauren who played with Monty all the time! Had a great day out at Dunster Castle and Dunster village and the dog loved the walk from Blue Anchor to Minehead. Hope to visit again next year as this was a really good find.

Room Tip: The family room was very roomy. We had the super king bed and our 2 teenagers had the bedroom next...

We look forward to meeting you all again in the future.

My stay in Arden Cottage was great. Jane & Paul were model hosts -- friendly, efficient, kind and well informed. The Cottage itself was in excellent condition, and over half a millennium old. (The plumbing is much more recent -- the hot water plentiful and the facilties excellent.)

The large garden and relaxed atmosphere also made it a pleasure to stay. The breakfasts were diverse and tasty.

So many attractions nearby: Watchet, the Quantocks, Blue Anchor, Exmoor, Porlock, &c. For West Somerset, Williton's the base, and I want to go back to Arden Cottage. It's so good to be looked after so well, by a team who know what they're doing.

Room Tip: Ask Paul or Jane nicely.
