An 18th-century hotel near the Blackdown Hills and Dorest nature reserves in the Somerset countryside, with full English breakfast

Thanks to its Somerset location in the heart of cider country and its taste for only the best local produce, the family owners behind The Lordleaze Hotel collect awards like they collect empty plates from satisfied diners. After 17 years at the helm, these include an AA three-star rating and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

The 18th-century farmhouse turned country hotel is the halfway point between Marble Arch and Land’s End and the perfect base for country or South Coast breaks. The surrounding Somerset, Dorset and Devon landscape provides a peaceful backdrop to The Lordleaze Hotel’s charm and fresh, regionally focused food. Add to that comfortable guest rooms with attention to detail and a few drops of the local ‘apple juice’ served in the bar, and you have a recipe for an idyllic break.

Good to know

Please note that on 13 and 20 May and 15 June, there will be a disco at the hotel, with loud music until 12am.
