Wonderful place!

Paula was an excellent hostess! Her husband is an excellent source for local history! Great breakfast and wonderful accommodations. We checked out other accommodations nearby and definitely glad we stayed at Millstream!

Lovely character cottage in good location. Room , bed & bedding was to a high standard and extremely clean. Best breakfasts we’ve had in a long time!

Dunster Delight!

Booked Millstream Cottage on the strength of previous reviews and it proved to be a great choice. Such a relaxing place to stay and the whole house exudes quality and attention to detail. Lots of choice at breakfast to suit all tastes, I had the cooked breakfast each day which was pre ordered and you could choose your own items and quantity of each, it was all perfect.
Paula was a great host and if you are not familiar with the area is very knowledgeable regarding places to visit and restaurants in the locality.
Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if I could give it 6 stars I would.                                                                                                                                            Source – Trip advisor, Norman & Pat, Coventry, May 2024

A relaxing mini-break!

I had a wonderfully relaxing mini-break at Millstream Cottage.
The decor was cosy and calming and quiet. Having a slice of homemade cake on arrival was a lovely way to start my stay.
Breakfast was truly delicious, with a wide choice of food options available. Paula was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.                      Source – Trip advisor, Rebecca, Chippenham, April 2024

A world away from the hustle and bustle!

Millstream Cottage is a delight, situated in the medieval village of Dunster, and possesses a feel all of its own – of possibly the early 1800s – although it does date back several centuries earlier, to Norman times.

The cottage itself is more than 500 years old and has been renovated beautifully to provide a supremely comfortable, cosseting and warm environment.

This was my third stay – after a four year break – and this particular ‘home from home’ remains my favourite, from the welcoming home-made cake with a pot of tea on arrival, to my choice of an immaculately presented fresh fruit salad and a splendid cooked breakfast to follow.

The bedrooms are tastefully furnished and well appointed, with a very generous variety of biscuits and at least five choices of tea – including Earl Grey, Red Bush and Camomile. And, if you should run out of milk for your hot chocolate or coffee, there’s a little refrigerator on the landing containing a jug of ‘Jersey’ for a top-up!

Paula has thought of everything..

We stayed here for two nights. The whole house was beautiful, the interior decoration beautifully done and spotlessly clean. The residents lounge was very comfortable. We stayed in room 2 with the super king bed. It was so lovely, a window seat overlooked the garden and woods beyond, it was very peaceful. Paula has thought of every detail from the welcome cup of tea and cake to the products in the bathroom and welcome tea tray with huge quantity of biscuits! Breakfast was lovely too. Parking not the easiest in the whole of Dunster but a short walk away was fine, a nice walk in very pretty surroundings. Tip: Room 2 for a super king bed and power shower to really wake you up!

Honestly the best B and B we have ever stayed in. Homemade cake and a pot of tea on arrival. Immaculate rooms. Lovely guest lounge with Netfix and Amazon etc. The best cooked breakfast I have ever tasted. Will come back.

Wonderful two night stay August 2021

We enjoyed our two night stay at Millstream Cottage Dunster and would highly recommend. On our arrival we had a warm welcome from Paula who offered us tea and the most delicious homemade cake. Our room was very comfortable with lovely furnishings and we enjoyed deliciuos breakfasts. We actually thought that Millstream Cottage is the best B&B we have ever stayed in (we have stayed in quite a few!) A few minutes walk to the High Street. Thanks to Paula. We will definately be back!

Potentially the best poached egg I’ve ever had

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 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.

Quintessential English BnB

We just had a great stay at Millstream, our host 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.

Beautiful B&B

Paula was 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 is a fabulous host 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 host 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. Paula is  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 Paula 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.

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 was a lovely host 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 host!

Upon arrival she 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 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!

Fabulous B&B

Had the most amazing two days in and around Dunster (despite the weather) helped by a stay in Paula 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 for being such a great host, 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!

From the very warm and friendly welcome, delicious tea and cake on arrival, the beautiful accommodation and the excellent breakfast, everything was just perfect.

Another great stay

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 Paula is 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 host 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. 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.

Returning guests

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

Beautiful BnB and amazing experience

Peaceful and serene location full of history and features. The BnB was beautiful and the host so kind and helpful. The sitting room was cosy and relaxing and we were treated to welcome chocolate cake. Our room was so clean and comfy and the shower strong. Breakfast was perfect with the all important cafetière of coffee. We loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Paula. You are a amazing host and we loved your BnB. We will be back!

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 have achieved it with what must take a lot of work behind the scenes. Relaxing, comfortable, tastefully decorated, great breakfast.
