Banwell, Somerset
Bed & Breakfast

A delicious spot in Somerset countryside: farm breakfasts, 3-course dinners, cosy log-burner, spring daffodils... Near Bristol and the M5


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A country house with scrumptious food, charming hosts and croquet on the lawn. Liz and Richard give you scones and tea, and your own independent wing of their listed house. You have two pretty bedrooms (one up, one down) with country furniture and super bathrooms. In winter, a wood-burner keeps your little sitting room cosy; in summer, laze in a sea of flowers. You feast on local eggs and homemade bread and jams for breakfast; Liz cooks memorable dinners too with home-grown veg. Just off the village road, it’s close to Bristol airport, Wells – and the M5, so the perfect pit-stop if you’re on your way to Devon or Cornwall.

From the moment we arrived we were treated more as old friends than paying guests. Richard and Liz are a delightful double act. We had booked dinner for our first night which was excellent, cooked by Liz and served by Richard. Our room was extremely comfortable, and we had the use of a small lounge with a wood burning stove. Unlike most b and b's we had our own key and were able to come and go when we wanted. We thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed at Stonebridge in Banwell in Somerset with Liz and Richard last weekend. They made us so welcome and provided a number of extra details which made our stay particularly memorable and special - for example, log fires in the sitting room, afternoon tea on arrival. Breakfast and accommodation were all excellent. We have stayed at a number of Sawdays bed and breakfast places over the years but this recent experience does stand out as a highlight.


We received a lovely warm welcome from Liz and Richard. Everything about our stay was relaxing, they made it so easy to melt right into your own space in their house. Our evening meal and breakfast was both generous and delicious. And to top it all I think you would go a long way to find home-made scones as good as Liz's! Don't stay in a hotel, stay here. You won't regret it.

1st class furniture and fittings. Impeccable cleanliness. Delicious & abundant food. Extra offers of food and advice. Amazingly attentive, sensitive, well-informed and exceedingly kind hosts. An attractive 'home'. Will re-visit with certainty.

Tom, Nottingham

Richard and Liz were incredibly attentive and charming hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble . The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms luxurious and spotless . Most delicious tea and a lit Woodburning stove in our own cosy sitting room welcomed us on our arrival despite our lateness . Breakfast was first class and we much appreciated helpful suggestions about day’s activities including a lovely headland walk on sand bay / point .

David, Cambridge

We have stayed in many B and Bs but Stonebridge was outstanding and far in front of all the others. Lovely warm sitting room to greet us, huge very comfortable bed with all the extras that you have at home. As for the food – dinner and breakfast were both outstanding.


Liz and Richard made us extremely welcome,the rooms were a delight,very comfortable.The food was delicious,Liz's cooking is superb. I would recommend Stonebridge to anyone.


Liz and Richard Annesley were wonderful hosts and we felt nothing was too much trouble. Dinner as well as breakfast was outstanding and the rooms comfortable. It made all the difference having our own little sitting room.


We stayed for three nights at Liz & Richard's wonderful B & B. What a relaxing welcome we had after a frustrating journey from London. Tea & scones were enjoyed in the lovely dining room that is for their guests. Later we sat in the garden with a glass of wine while Liz cooked a lovely meal for us. Breakfasts were superb and the whole experience made for a wonderful weekend. Thoroughly recommend Stonebridge B & B to anyone wanting to enjoy a really special experience.


Yet again a wonderful two day break. Nothing was too much trouble for our charming hosts. Comfortable rooms including our own sitting room and woodburning stove. Food was absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend for a short break or even a departure point for Bristol airport. We visited Cheddar Gorge and Wells.

Debbie, Launceston

We had an absolutely perfect stay at Liz and Richard's B&B and left with our stomachs full of yummy scones/cake and a bag of freshly cut apples from the garden. Great short weekend away from London, very conveniently located for our visit to Cheddar Gorge. The Railway Inn was also great for dining as recommended. The room and bathroom were spotless and the linen crisp and gorgeous.

Marina, London

We had a wonderful couple of days at Richard and Liz's B & B. They couldn't have been more welcoming and afternoon teas and breakfasts were outstanding.

Belinda, Winchester

Charming hosts. Delicious Food Warm and inviting accommodation.


From the moment four of us arrived at different times and from different directions we all experienced levels of hospitality well above expectations. All the usual aspects of Stonebridge would merit a very good review in themselves (i.e. lovely house and decor, comfortable beds with good linen, towels, nice bathrooms) but it was the high level of consideration and the warmth of our hosts' personalities that really made our stay very special. Finally we have to mention the wonderful tea (homemade cakes, scones and bread) as well as the varied and great breakfasts. We intend to visit again.

Ruth, A village!

This was easily one of the loveliest B&B experiences we have ever had. Beautiful property, idyllic setting, ten star hosts and a gorgeous breakfast. We were genuinely sorry when we had to head home to London. Highly recommended for couples or singles looking for a peaceful and charming stay.


I cannot recommend this place enough! Liz & Richard are beyond friendly & go out of there way to make sure you have a comfortable stay! Everything was of a high standard- especially the breakfast which was superb! If we are back in the area, we will definitely be returning!

Emily, Essex

What a little gem. Such a warm welcome from Richard and Liz. Afternoon tea on arrival lovely dinner and fantastic breakfast. All home comforts and more!

Dina, Mold

We had the most wonderful stay at Stonebridge. Liz and Richard are simply delightful hosts. They couldn't have done more to make us feel at home, we were a party of 6, (two children aged 12 and 9) and it was simply perfect for us all. Extremely comfortable accommodation, the food was worthy of a write up on its own! We would highly recommend and hope to return some day.

Vanessa, Salsibury, wiltshire

Mr & Mrs Aarndt, were such fantastic hosts. We stayed here with our family for one night, after a wedding close by. You could not have asked for more friendly & sociable hosts. The accommodation with all its finishing touches was amazing, and breakfast was more than you could ask for. We will definitely be going back for a longer stay.
