“Like staying with friends and great for dogs”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We have stayed for a week over new year withour 2 dogs. We were all made to feel very welcome and part of their home rather then just people staying. The dogs were loved as their own and settled straight in. Paul and Jane made sure we had everything we needed, making the dogs breakfast when they wouldnt eat, drying endless amounts of dog towels and coats and our boots for us! We were welcomed to sit with them having a chat and drink and to be part of their new years party like friends would. Our dogs loved being with them and had a great garden for them to play. We walked miles everyday after a lovely and filling breakfast and had some great local pubs serving good food for our evening meal, also all dog friendly. This has been the best dog friendly place we have stayed yet in the 6 years weve had dogs!!

I'm sorry I've not replied earlier but been in hospital having my hip replaced! On the mend now and getting back to business.

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us at Arden Cottage so favourably. We loved having your company and that of Sasha and Sam your dogs. We enjoyed your company at New Year and were happy to include you in our celebrations, the more the merrier.

You certainly explored Somerset to the full during your 7 day stay and we were most impressed with your endurance during some pretty wet weather, nothing put you off your long walks each day.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Comfortable and welcoming b&b with wonderfully friendly, engaging hosts. Paul and Jane are naturals and it really felt like we'd known them for years. They couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating to us. Bedroom was comfortable and breakfast is a really jolly affair around the big communal table, fab coffee and great, home made granola. A fantastic smal business in a lovely old house.

Thank you for your review.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend with your family. You were all such good company and we appreciate your kind words about your stay. It is always nice when you get a group of people around the breakfast table that know one another and who get on so well.

You would be welcome again any time you feel in need of a break.

Best wishes for 2014.

Not only was the welcome excellent, met with tea and cake and a warm welcome, very comfortable accommadation but when a small accident occurred our hosts did everything in their power to ensure it did not affect out stay, which it did not. The breakfasts were so great and really set you up for the day. This is really a home from home, and we will be back as there is no other place to beat the atmosphere, the conversation, the friendliness and the comfort.

Room Tip: All the rooms are stunning, and have their own charm

Hi there P & J, thank you for your kind review as it is always pleasing to know when you are getting things right and that Guests appreciate what you do.

We both hope that J is doing well?

Your lovely homemade shortbread was delicious - you just can't beat homemade Christmas gifts.

We look forward to seeing you both again in 2014.

I only stayed for one night whilst on a course nearby, but would definitely consider staying again when we are in the area with our 2 dogs. Lovely cosy room, good breakfast and great hosts Paul and Jane.

What a lovely surprise to receive this review and were happy to read that your stay was a welcoming one.

We undertook a most interesting workshop together and were then able to relax in the evening over a meal.

We would certainly be happy to have your family come and join us whenever you wish to get away.

We stayed at Arden Cottage for about a week, seeing it as an ideal place to venture out on day trips to the coast, Exmoor, and the Quantocks. We were right! Paul and Jane were splendid hosts, making us feel so welcome: providing a excellent breakfast to start each day's adventure; great conversation whenever we were in the mood for it; plus a beautifully appointed room in a historic home filled with charm and character.

As for it's suitability for a day trip headquarters, it couldn't be better. The West Somerset steam train has a station only a short walk down the street, and while it provides a great experience in itself, it is also a very convenient way to explore west Somerset's hills and the coast all the way to Minehead. Buy an unlimited travel pass for a great value. We found our walks and drives in the Quantocks were a highlight, and all the small coastal towns, Dunster Castle, and Exmoor also provided great memories. It's a long trip from our home in western Canada, but we hope to return sometime to enjoy more great Somerset hospitality at Arden Cottage. Maybe next time we will bring our dog too as it was clear she would have been pampered too!

What a lovely review to receive so 'out of the blue' after your stay in August 2013.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your Anniversary trip around England before returning to Canada.

Like you, we found your company very easy going and are pleased to read that your stay with us was memorable for all the right reasons.

We very much hope to see you again and of course your dog would be most welcome as well.

We needed to break our journey to Cornwall because of the Mother in Law. Two dogs required dog friendly accommodation and a Google search turned up Arden Cottage.

What a find! Super hosts, comfortable and interesting house, all in all a great place to stay. Dinner was locally found at the Masons Arms which was also good value and very tasty.

We were so impressed that we booked immediately for the return journey and we will probably never do the whole run to Cornwall in one again.

Oh, and for the idiot who complained about the parking. Our 110 Defender (with the turning circle of a supertanker), slotted in nicely thanks.

Thank you for your kind review about your stay at Arden Cottage.

We are very happy to hear that your stay with us was an enjoyable one and that our suggestion for a meal at the Mason's Arms was to your liking. It's always helpful to know when we get things right.

We look forward to seeing you all again tonight on your return trip from Cornwall. We'll have the kettle on and the cake will be ready and waiting.

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.
