We were looking for somewhere special to stay.....Cothelstone Manor couldn't have been a more beautiful and relaxing setting. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome, looked after, and in the most wonderful setting. Thank you for making this a really special weekend and one filled with lovely memories. We will be back....soon !
Sarah, Peter & Christian

Thank you for hosting such a beautiful bed and breakfast at Cothelstone Manor...we feel as though we entered a fairy tale here - thank you again for all of your kindness and help anticipating all of our needs and comforts.
Sarah Anne, Holly & Kelly

Delightful one-nights stay- aside from the gorgeous decor, the gracious hosts, there is also the most exquisite breakfast on offer- including the best scrambled eggs I've ever had in Britain !
Melody & Ian


Just a great big thank you for the wonderful hospitality you afforded Locking Villagers on our visit.
You got it absolutely right with a different kind of talk and good food attractively served up.
Nothing was too much trouble and that is a refreshing change in this modern day society.
My feed back from the day was extremely good --everything positive.
We will be returning, that is if you will have us!
Brian Ashton, Locking Villagers

On behalf of South Dorset National Trust, I would like to thank you for your wonderful hospitality in your lovely home, which you gave us last Thursday.

Everyone enjoyed the visit and said so during the return journey to Dorchester. Thank you again.
Jim Wilkinson, South Dorset National Trust

The Tour was fantastic, the food and tea welcoming and your hospitality the best.
Evaline Oliver, Woolavington WI

What an absolutely splendid time you gave us - thank you so much for all your kindness and thoughtfulness.

You are wonderful hosts, made us all feel relaxed at your home and really involved us in your house and garden and the church.
The lunch was superb. Many, many thanks.
Jennifer Bowen, Friends of the Historic Houses Association

Bed and Breakfast


Steeped in history and set in some of England’s most outstanding countryside, Cothelstone Manor is a family home where you will receive a very warm welcome from the moment you walk into the impressive Galleried Hall.

Described as a “gloriously grand Manor quite without stuffiness where you can awake to Sunday church bells and proper English breakfasts”.

Stay in one of our large comfortable double bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom and with wonderful views across the walled gardens and beautiful countryside beyond. Our rooms also have Freeview television.

Relax in the elegant drawing room with its blazing log fire in the winter.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast, with free-range eggs from our own hens and locally produced sausages, in the breakfast room.

Cothelstone Manor is situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is close to Exmoor and the sea. See the stunning gardens of Hestercombe, visit various National Trust properties within easy reach, including Dunster Castle and Coleridge Cottage, or just enjoy the stunning countryside.

The West Somerset Railway starts at Bishops Lydeard, a short distance from the Manor. This is the longest steam railway in the country run by volunteers and runs for 20 miles from Bishops Lydeard through beautiful countryside and along the coast to Minehead.

There are many sporting facilities and venues nearby including the Somerset County Cricket Ground and Taunton Racecourse.

Please note
Check in is AFTER 4.30 pm and we ask that you check out by 10.00 am.

“Finny and Nigel are the creme de la creme of hosts and their manor is beyond fabulous. If you find yourself in Somerset, looking for peace and quiet, history, English charm and a breath of fresh air, do come here. Not only is the entire property — inside and out — stellar, but the hospitality is first class. After a warm greeting, Finny graciously made us last-minute dinner reservations and we felt immediately at home. Nigel was more than generous with his time, chatting with us in the morning after a perfect full English breakfast. We even got to meet their adorable dog and hear their son’s virtuosity on the piano as we arrived. It goes without saying that all the basics — comfy bed, tea and fresh milk waiting, lovely details — were top notch. As a bonus, you can leaf through a large offering of design and history books and magazines while dozing off to sleep in this very, very special place. Note that while you are in their home, it is a palatial manor, and your private quarters are completely private (more like a hotel) and the public drawing room feels more like your own personal space, as well. It is the perfect blend of privacy and hospitality. A truly outstanding experience.” Sarah – 2016.
