Very short walk to railway station, shops, restaurants. We stayed here when visiting Dunster by Candlelight. Comfortable bed and very clean, lovely cooked breakfast plus choice of all cereals you can think of and fresh coffee! Would definitely stay here again when staying on the area. Owner was very welcoming on arrival. Also thanku very much for letting us stay in your family room when we originally booked double (this saved me from sharing a bed with my snoring sister). Cannot find a fault with this place and for me that's rare. 10/10.

Sweet and romantic

Lovely welcome, great breakfast - ate so much! Room was good, we had an a good time albeit short. Were there for wedding and our anniversary and this was a perfect stay. Beds were a little small, but that's not a complaint we just had to cuddle closer. Thanks 😀
