Exceptional! - Rating 5/5

My friend and I stayed here while walking the Mendip Way. What a gem. Beautiful house which has been lovingly restored. Luxurious accommodation with attention to detail - very comfortable and spotlessly clean. A delicious breakfast. The hosts went out of their way to be helpful and to make our stay memorable.I wish all b and b accommodation was as good as this.Thank you.

I can’t imagine there being a better B&B anywhere.Nothing is too much trouble, the welcome was warm and friendly,bedroom was cosy and comfortable, and the breakfasts were lavish.The decor was not quite quirky, but certainly very different and pleasing.

Superb stay - Rating 5/5

We were a group of 6 adults staying in 3 rooms for 2 nights. Richard and Mike gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. All the rooms were immaculately presented and the facilities well thought out with a lot of attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble even down to accompanying us part way to guide us to a restaurant in town for an evening meal. There was an excellent choice of options for breakfast which was of the highest quality and plenty of it. We would highly recommend this to any one. Probably the best b&b we have ever stayed in.

The house and gardenare both delightful and Richard and Michael are excellent hosts, keen to ensure their visitors enjoy a wonderful stay. The rooms are clean, comfortable and tastefully appointed with generous supplies of refreshments. Breakfast was excellent, too. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

Can’t wait! Thank you Maplestone. We’ve already recommended you and your establishment to Charles Dowding and his No Dig gardening course.

Dear Richard,A bit late, but it’s never too late to pay people a compliment and that’s what I want to do.We stayed with you and your partner in your beautiful home at the end of August. I was with a friend of mine and we were going to a gay tantra retreat nearby.You suggested to go and have a look in Wells, and we did. BEAUTIFUL! Magnificent cathedral and there was an (art) market going on as well where we bought some objects. What a perfect start of our stay in the UK.You were so kind and friendly and we absolutely LOVED our stay! Your beds are still talked about, soooo good! The room was lovely, breakfast super, etc.So, can we write a revieuw somewhere on the net? If so, please could you send me a link. I will be very happy to do so.Thank you once again for your hospitality and we will certainly return next year!!With kind greetings,Rob van der Meule

Wonderful stay - Rating 5/5

Richard & Michael,Just a short note to tell you how much we enjoyed our 2 nights' stay at your lovely place in Shepton Mallet ! It was much too short ...We really appreciated the great attention to detail and the well decorated rooms.In our bedroom, everything was well thought of:from freshly ground coffee, a nice selection of tea, a lovely range of biscuits, wonderful mint chocolates to tasteful, homegrown apples...Everything was immaculate in the bathroom:lovely, soft and very large bathtowels, bathropes and even slippers and also a nice selection of toiletries. The round shower cubicle was very comfortable to use (plenty of hot water too!) and it was lovely to have a soft shower mat to step onto when coming out of the shower. Plenty of space to put wet towels too!Our freshly cooked breakfast made a very good start of the day! The choice is amazing... I certainly appreciated the bowl of freshly cut fruit and the smooth Greek yoghurt with honey. The freshly brewed coffee was superb ...Your cottage garden is very pretty and attractive. It's a pity we didn't have some more time to enjoy on your little patio (under the parasol !) with a glass of bubbles !The Dusthole pub was a bit of a downside but the meal on the second evening in the family-run restaurant made up for it ...!!! (Thanks for walking us there, Michael!!)Thanks once again for the warm welcome ! We will certainly recommend you to our friends and we will try and come and stay with you again when we are in the area. It's a pity it's too far away from where we live in Belgium to come over for a weekend ... but still if you have any good offers going, please don't hesitate to let us know !!Congrats with your concept, guys, it is much appreciated ! Keep up the good work !

A very recommendable hotel. - Rating 0/5

We stayed in September 2016 at Somerset in Richard and Michaels hotel. Sooo beautiful! The hotel has a very personal touch and the old and new elements in the design of the house have a special atmosphere. The surrounding garden seems almost enchanted. We have on request a very good vegetarian breakfast and the two have surprised us for dinner with delicious, varied vegetarian dishes accompanied by classical music. Richard and Michael are so attentive and sympathetic hosts. Thanks for that! A very recommendable hotel. We warmly greet Richard and Michael in the United Kingdom.

I stayed at Maplestone Hall with a girlfriend as we were visiting gardens in the area. Richard and Michael were the most marvelous hosts in every way. So kind and such fun. The house has been sensitively and beautifully renovated and is SO comfortable and clean. The garden is magical. We were lucky enough that Richard and Michael cooked the most delicious food for us in the eveningin addition to a divine breakfast which we lingered over before reluctantly setting off home. It is a great area to visit and i could not recommend it more highly. It is a must to visit
