The Old House B&B

The Old House B&B

Address: Nether Stowey, Somerset  TA5 1LJ
Telephone: +44 (0) 1278 732392
Region: North Somerset - more
The Old House in Nether Stowey is the ideal location for a relaxing bed and breakfast or self catering holiday in our three beautiful Somerset cottages. The Old House is situated in the charming village of Nether Stowey which nestles on the edge of the Quantock Hills. It was this area of Somerset that provided inspiration for the poet Samuel Coleridge and his great friends the Wordsworths.

Records confirm that Coleridge actually lodged in The Old House in what is now our Quantocks Bed and Breakfast Suite. It was from here that he enjoyed the beauty of the countryside on long walks over the hills to Porlock, nowadays a popular route enjoyed by many visitors to the area. Only four miles from the coast many other beautiful walks can also be found. The Quantock Hills 'Area of Outstanding National Beauty' was the first designated in the UK.

Bed and Breakfast in the Quantocks - The Coleridge Suite & Sarah's Room
For those looking for a delightful bed and breakfast break in the Quantocks then our Coleridge suite is for you. The elegantly decorated interior and gracious furnishings have delighted all of our guests in this grade 11 listed, Visit Britain 4* Silver Award accommodation.

Sarah's Room
Following so many requests we are now able to offer Sarah's room, a second charming twin/double room with it's own en-suite named after Coleridge's wife.

It was after her sad separation from Samuel Coleridge that Sarah, his wife, stayed for many weeks at The Old House with her children enjoying the garden. Still today you will have to travel a long way to find a lovelier playground!

Breakfast at The Old House, Quantocks.
In the summer months guests may enjoy breakfast in the the delightful walled garden reputedly having inspired the poet's famous 'Recollections of Love', reportedly written whilst staying at The Old House in 1807 after the break down of his marriage. We are proud to have been awarded the Visit Britain Outstanding Breakfast Award in 2009 & 2010.
