Fabulous stay. Immaculately kept cottage with affordable rooms and a cracking breakfast line-up. Potentially the best poached egg I’ve ever had. Situated just a 3-min walk from the High Street, which has so much to offer. Paula and Phil so amicable. Can’t fault it.

Comfortable and charming place to stay
We had a lovely welcome with tea and cake in the comfortable visitors’ lounge. Everything was spotless and sensible Covid precautions were taken. Our room was pleasant with a view over the pretty garden. There were no problems parking in the nearby carpark which could be paid for online. We had a great 3 day break enjoying walks and sights nearby fortified by a splendid breakfast.

Delightful historic cottage with a beautiful front garden, tastefully modernised inside with every comfort. Was welcomed with a pot of tea and delicious cake. My single room was small but perfectly adequate. Breakfast huge! Phil and Paula were very friendly and attentive hosts.

Quintessential English BnB
We just had a great stay at Millstream, our hosts were the perfect balance of being attentive but not in your face and the breakfast was superb. Rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean and Room 4 stayed nice and cool despite the very hot weather, no need for a fan. I’d expect other rooms to be the same given the thick historic walls. Really enjoyed our time there, you’d be hard pressed to find a better BnB anywhere, never mind in Dunster. COVID protocols were absolutely up to scratch to boot.

Paula and Phil were so welcoming on our recent stay at Millstream Cottage. We’d had a rubbish M5-South journey down so a delicious slice of chocolate cake was brought to the beautiful guest lounge to tide us over until our dinner! The room was beautiful, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast menu is exactly what you’d expect and the food from Exmoor is a treat to have each morning. We will definitely return – highly recommended.

Great first break out of lockdown
We stayed for three nights as a couple along with my wife’s sister. Really enjoyable stay. Paula and Phil are fabulous hosts and made us feel very safe. It’s a lovely chocolate box cottage on the edge of Dunster and near open countryside. On arrival we were greeted with tea and large slices of home made chocolate cake! The rooms are very well appointed and have everything you could want for a truly special stay. The beds are very comfortable with great quality linen. Breakfast is lovely with lots of choice, try the smoked haddock and poached egg and the homemade fruit compote is lovely. Dunster is a beautiful place and we recommend a visit to the castle and gardens. One tip, book a table, well in advance,if you want to eat out in Dunster in the evening.

Beautiful cottage in Dunster
Millstream Cottage is beautiful and quaint but with modern touches that make for a very comfortable stay in the centre of Dunster.The hosts were very welcoming with tea and homemade cake ready on our arrival. Our rooms were very clean, comfortable with high quality furnishings and attention to detail to include items such as tea,coffee and biscuits with fresh milk, complimentary bottled water and even a torch! Great care was taken to ensure guests felt confident that COVID regulations were being adhered to. The breakfasts were excellent with a great deal of choice including vegetarian options. The quality of the ingredients was very good and the choice of times to arrive for breakfast gave us some flexibility. Phil and Paula prepared a comprehensive welcome pack which was emailed in good time before our arrival. Recommendations for eating out in Dunster was really useful and enabled us to book in advance. A late arrival meant we hadn’t booked a meal for the evening we arrived but that was soon organised for us by Phil making a call to the nearest pub. Dunster is a great place to base yourself if you wish to explore Exmoor or the North Somerset/Devon coast. We really enjoyed our stay at this delightful cottage. Thank you, Paula and Phil

B&B that exceeded expectations
On a chilly December day, I was greeted with a very warm welcome! Paula showed me to my cosy and very comfortable single room and tempted me to take mulled wine and a mince pie in the beautiful lounge with a wood burner – what a start to a four day break. Paula and Phil were lovely hosts and their home a real luxury to stay in. The breakfasts were delicious and far too tempting (the smoked haddock and poached egg is a must)! This was my first time in the area and I now have a long list of places to explore on a return visit! There is so much diversity from coastal paths and beaches to wild moorland, rivers and wooded valleys. The natural woodlands are amazing. I should stress at this time too that I felt very comfortable with the logistics in place to ensure the safety of their guests during this pandemnic. The Christmas decorations were stunning; the lights outside in the cottage garden charming and inside really Christmassy and very tasteful. Wonderful memories!

Wonderful B&B with fantastic hosts!
Upon arrival Phil greeted us with coffee and cake, perfect after a long journey! The room was in excellent condition and very comfortable with everything we needed. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and set us up for the day ahead! We’re definitely planning on staying again next time we’re exploring the area. 🙂

A wonderful B&B we regularly return to
Paula and Phil made us very welcome as always and were very accomodating to our Covid requirements. The cake on arrival was delicious as were the breakfasts. We really enjoyed using the lovely guest lounge with woodburner to relax in on Saturday evening. The location is perfect – everything in Dunster is a short walk, just minutes from the castle – and you can walk up into the beautiful countryside from the door too. We’ll be back!

Had the most amazing two days in and around Dunster (despite the weather) helped by a stay in Paula and Phil’s wonderful B&B. I was made to feel welcome from the outset with coffee and delicious chocolate cake. Room was just idyllic with the most comfy bed. Breakfast was excellent as well. Can’t wait to go back to visit. Thank you Paula & Phil for being such great hosts, despite the challenging circumstances we are all in. Felt totally safe whilst with you. Would urge anyone who is considering a break in Dunster to stay at Millstream – you will not be disappointed!

If you are looking for the perfect getaway in a beautiful cottage in a perfect village, this is it. From the moment you are greeted through the door with the offer of tea and cakes to the fantastic full English breakfast Phil and Paula are there to make sure your stay with them is comfortable, peaceful and just very relaxing. During these current strange times we never once felt that there could have been anymore done to make us feel safe and relaxed. The whole cottage is immaculate and all the little details that you would want have already been taken care of like the fresh milk in the guest fridge everyday, small bottles of water, lovely fresh big towels and not forgetting the amazing breakfast with a good variety to choose from. I would highly recommend staying here as the perfect retreat from the sometimes madness of modern life. Thank you guys and hopefully we will see you again.

A beautiful place to rest, wonderful hosts, 10/10
I managed to book a single, en-suite room at this lovely cottage at the very last minute. My lovely room overlooked the garden and national park, and I received a very warm, authentic welcome from Paula. At the end of a day of exploring, I wanted tranquility and I got it. The breakfast was superb, Phil was engaged and funny, without me feeling the need to talk, and the whole experience was the complete rest I was looking for. I visited in August, and have already booked for the end of September, I think that says it all! 10/10 on every level.

Best B&B in Dunster
We are frequent visitors to Dunster and have stayed at (we think) pretty much all the B&Bs there and we rate this one as the best yet. Lovely room, immaculately clean, wonderful full English breakfast (including soya milk). There is also a lovely communal lounge where you can kick back and relax at the end of a long day. Friendly and helpful owners – we will return.

We returned back to this beautiful B&B for the first time in two years. It’s without doubt one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in and were welcomed by the new owners with tea and cake. We were pleased to see that it has maintained its high standards and that it’s most certainly as enjoyable a stay as it’s always been. We most certainly will be returning once again. Andy & Kath

A long bike ride’s happy ending
Sitting on a bike for 8 hours to get to Dunster meant that I was tired, hungry and smelly. The welcome given was a masterclass in the art of perfect hosting. Quick tour of the cottage and offered tea and cake straight away. It got better from then on. Warm, strong shower, soft bed, drinks, snacks in the bedroom, tv. All of which helped to regain composure and head out feeling almost back to normal, (tired legs.). The balance is everything in a hotel or b’n’b. Paula and Phil have achieved it with what must take a lot of work behind the scenes. Relaxing, comfortable, tastefully decorated, great breakfast.

Beautiful cosy B&B in Dunster
Just returned from a lovely 3-night break at Millstream Cottage B & B in Dunster, where Paula and Phil gave us a very warm welcome. Dunster itself is postcard perfect, a fantastic base to explore Exmoor, but 500-year-old Millstream Cottage is the icing on the cake. Pretty cottage gardens greet you at the front, and there are two spacious reception rooms for guests’ use, both very comfortable, beautifully furnished and decorated.
We stayed in the duck-egg blue room, a small double room that we chose for its pretty view over the garden and West Street. Though not large, it was perfectly adequate, with tasteful decor, a comfortable bed, pretty window-seat and excellent shower.
It was the small touches that made the difference, though – a tin with lots of different teas and coffees, a jar full of biscuits, fresh milk from a mini-fridge on the landing for visitors who don’t like those little UHT pots. Quality toiletries in the bathroom, and a decent hairdryer (with nozzle no less! Be still my beating heart!) in the dressing table drawer, together with cotton buds, cotton wool and a shoe shine.
Breakfast was also impressive, with a tasty range of cooked options, plenty of cereals, toast, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Paula and Phil could not have been more hospitable, and we felt very much at home in this lovely B & B. It’s rare for my husband and I to stay at the same place twice, but now we’ve found Millstream Cottage we’re sure to stay there again on our next visit to Exmoor.
