If you are planning to explore lovely South Somerset, or you're here on business, why not stay in one of our charming guest-rooms? Their architecture is 18th century but they have a complete range of modern facilities and can be booked online. Our beautiful walled garden is an idyllic spot on a sunny day, sit back and relax. Or, if you need to work up an appetite, why not try your arm at traditional West Country skittles! We are 200 yards away from Montacute House which has recently stared in the BBC Period drama Wolf Hall and 1995 Hollywood blockbuster Sence and sensibility.

Hotel shut on arrival at approx.
5.30pm. No cooked breakfast available before 9.00am. 'Continental breakfast' left outside room; this was adequate but very 'pre-packed'. Hotel shut on leaving at approx 8.30am. Had to let myself out, lock the door and return the keys through the letter box. Never experienced that before in 40 years of travel. Room clean but in need of refurbishment. Very old fashioned. I know it was a pub with a reasonable B&B rate, but it compared very poorly with many other B&B establishments.
The Phelips Arms
