Wow! First time AIRBNB's, what a find. Best hosts I've Ever come across. What a welcome, above the call of duty! Rachael & Gary's home was a beautiful home away from home. Breakfast was fit for a king as was the tea and cake. Nothing was too much trouble which made our experience feel more like staying with friends. Two very happy holidaymakers.

A warmer welcome, cosier bed and heartier breakfast could not possibly exist anywhere else - the whole experience was simply sublime! Rachael, Gary and their son, Charlie were the most gracious of hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay absolutely first class; the paragons of AirBnB virtue!

We stayed with Rachel as we aee going to a wedding close by. She couldnt have been nicer and even dropped us to the wedding and gave us a taxi number to come home. She was so friendly, made an awesome breakfast and her house is just lovely. The room was perfect, really comfy bed and lovely modern bathroom just next to the bedroom. Staying with Rachel made our weekend even better and I hope we have an excuse to go again sometime. Thank you so much for your hospitality Rachel, you couldnt have been nicer, Dee

An airBNB in a beautiful thatched former pub, run by two extremely nice and caring people. The B&B is close to the Sustrans route 33, making the place an ideal stopover for cyclists.

Hi I'm Rachael
I'm married to Gary and we live together with our family in The Old Crown Inn as it was known!! I love keeping chickens!!!
I'm originally from Cornwall where my family are 6th generation farmers and butchers so we love the good life!! Gary is born and bred in Taunton and a sports coach by trade.
We love having people stay with us, its a relaxed environment for our guests and hopefully you'll feel part of the family by the time you leave.
We have been doing B&B here on and off for the past 11 years to fit in and around the family. We love the outdoors, sports and keeping as fit and healthy as we can.
