I stayed one night while walking the Monarch's Way and what a joy to find myself here after a long raining day of trudging. A beautiful home, very friendly hosts, scones to restore my strength ... and then the room! It was a double-storey room if you can imagine, with the second storey being a gigantic bathroom with freestanding bath... More

We stayed there for two nights at this beautifully kept house. From the moment we arrived Chris and Maggie were delightful and made us feel like family rather than guests. Our room was large, with a lovely en-suite bathroom (with roll top bath) and both immaculately kept, as indeed is the rest of the house. Breakfasts are to die for... More

We have just, reluctantly, spent one night with Chris and Maggie at The Old Vicarage. Reluctantly, because we would have loved to spend much more time with them in their wonderful B&B. We were welcomed as if we were old friends, offered tea and the most gorgeous cakes on arrival, and spent far to short a time chatting with our... More

Without doubt this B&B has to be one of the best in the UK for its location, quality, service AND food. The very peaceful surroundings and gardens make it a very relaxing place to unwind a bit during traveling over several weeks. The town of Castle Cary, only walking distance away, is a lovely place to visit. The rooms are... More

To say we enjoyed our stay would be a huge understatement, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel like old friends, the property and grounds are stunning, immaculately maintained, spotlessly clean and the whole place just oozes with charm and class as do the owners Chris and Maggie.

I am only motivated to review when something is either very bad or very good and this lovely place is definitely in the very very good category. It is set in a very peaceful location, the gardens are well set out, am just sorry I missed out on using the pool. The 2 storey conservatory is great to sit in... More
