The
Experience

This whitewashed cottage is full of surprises. Daisy has restored it using reclaimed everything – the quirkier the better: painted or gold-leafed pieces, polished boards, beautiful bedheads and Indian banister, clever clothes hooks… Bedrooms, all differently styled, have well-dressed beds and fantastic bathrooms. The breakfast room has separate tables that can all be put together for friends, a snug sofa by the wood-burner, artworks – and pottery for sale; it opens to a sunny terrace. Daisy loves to cook: homemade granola, bread, jams, local bacon, eggs from her parents’ smallholding, cakes. Cheddar and Glastonbury are 20 minutes.

Reviews

We've just returned from our second visit and we are already looking forward to returning. It's just the sort of place you want to return time and time again! Daisy is a fabulous host, warm, friendly and definitely goes the extra mile to make sure her guests feel well looked after. The accomodation is beautiful and full of stylish and quirky objects, fittings and furniture. Our bed was amazingly comfortable, the wetroom fabulous, and lots of lovely little touches including a delicious cake and great hot drinks selection. Daisy's breakfasts are to die for. Delicious and top notch quality.

Stunning! Daisy is the kindest, most thoughtful and welcoming of hosts. She went the extra mile for our vegan daughter, baking a vegan cake and providing all she would need. Our rooms were beautiful and full of wonderful things to look at and enjoy. Luxurious bathrooms, toiletries, and bath robes. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. There was a fabulous vegetarian and vegan breakfast provided to meet our requests with everything home made, the bread, the vegetarian sausages, jam and marmalade. The house and grounds have great character and care put into every aspect.

Pristine comfort - outstanding bathrooms, superlative breakfast, warm, friendly host. Could not recommend more highly.

Lesley, St albans

We both loved it and we cannot recommend this place highly enough. The farmhouse has been totally renovated to provide self-contained accommodation with bedrooms and a sitting room, each imaginatively decorated with state of the art fittings and luxurious linen. It’s quiet and peaceful with wonderful views. Daisy is friendly and welcoming and went out of her way to provide everything we needed to make our stay special. Homemade bread and granola (yes really homemade) and flap jacks to accompany early morning tea/coffee. We could go on. But don’t take our word for it - do stay there if you are in the area.

We highly recommend the Mount Pleasant farm House. Wonderfull room decorated with style and charm, lovely hostes who pamper you with a top-of-the pop breakfast. The nearby pub The Wheatsheaf..... is a lovely place where delicious food is served.

Gitte, Aarhus

Highly recommend. Daisy's created a lovely feel to the place and gave me very warm welcome - home baked flapjacks on very late arrival which I had with a cuppa (best selection I've seen in a room) after a late dip. Booked for the rooms eg copper bath, and extra special feel, and wasn't disappointed. Lovely breakfast too. Would definitely come again as a treat. Fellow Danish guest said the pub good was great also.

Local points of interest from Daisy Nicolaou

  • Ashton windmill, the last remaining windmill in Somerset can be seen from some of our bedroom windows. It's a mere 2 minute walk from the B&B and is a great place to see the sunset. (Open Wednesdays and Sundays from Easter through to the end of summer).
  • Our lovely village local is a couple of minutes walk from the B&B and serves fantastic food, we provide torches in the rooms so you can meander there and back. There are some other great eateries in the area a small drive away that we can also recommend!
  • We are a small drive from the ancient village of Cheddar, not only famous for its cheese but home to the beautiful Gorge and caves. It lies with in a designated site of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding national beauty!
  • Wells - one of the smallest cities in England, nestled in the foot of the Mendip hills. Home to the splendid 12th century cathedral, the beautiful Bishops Palace, 14th century Vicars Close and 18th century town hall.
  • There is a traditional open air farmers' market held in Wells every Wednesday & Saturday at the old Market Place offering local produce, scrumptious food & drink, arts & craft & much more. The city boosts a wide range of restaurants and independent shops.
  • If a day trip out with the possibility of a cream tea afterwards is more your thing then there are plenty of National Trust/English Heritage places for you to enjoy - Barrington Court, Lytes Cary Manor, Montacute House, Tyntesfield to name a few!
