    Harvest Moon pub restaurant only three minutes walk had excellent food. Beautiful scenery all around, so much to see we might return to visit Wells Cathedral and Taunton.

  • "We think that the bathroom needs a big mirror on the wall."

    It was lovely being very close to the Taunton and Bridgewater canal, with lovely peaceful walks along the towpath. Towards Taunton we found a lovely tearooms, with homemade cakes and scones. I have gluten and dairy intolerances and they gave me a gluten free scone and jam and a rhubarb lemonade to drink . The scone was the best gluten free scone I've ever tasted, and the rhubarb drink was very tasty and refreshing. The coach house was very spacious clean and comfortable, with no traffic noise, we loved it!

  • "Great little place, the owner has thought of everything to make it a pleasant stay."

    A 2 minute walk to the local pub which served great food; a 5 minute walk to the canal where you can enjoy a boat ride through the locks, stop at the cafe for a cream tea or ice cream or walk towards Bridgewater or Taunton keeping the kids entertained looking for planets. Only a short drive from Burnham on sea, Brean, Western Super Mare, Cheddar, Glastonbury and more, lots of things to do for adults and kids. Would highly recommend this place.
