We wanted to thank you for providing us with a superb bed and breakfast experience on our recent trip to Wells.  Your friendliness and warm welcome were second to none.  The facilities you offer are first-class: the co-ordinated décor/furnishings, the comfortable bed,  the heating on for an unusually chilly September evening, fresh garden flowers in the room and on the table and an abundant choice of breakfasts including fresh fruit salad.  We really enjoyed meeting you and will be back when we next visit the area.

 Our hosts were most welcoming and have worked hard to refurbish this character building. Our room and en suite was spacious and the breakfast table overlooked a delightful garden. Our only regret is we didn't book for longer. It's definitely on our 'return to' list.




 Recently I have stayed here and straight away you could tell how nice it was! The house and gardens are lovely and the people are very nice and welcoming. On arrival I was greeted in a very nice friendly environment. The rooms are lovely and modern. I probably had the best night sleep in the last year at this b&b! I was working locally and needed to leave early in the morning, despite the planned breakfast time they happily made breakfast 30 minutes early for us so I could leave to go to work on time. The b&b is amazing and I would definitely recommend.

 Words can't express our lovely 1 night stay at Highgate Cottage. It was the high point of a weekend in Somerset. We had booked the Days Inn but then found we had been allocated a 'smoking room' and so decided to find a B&B instead. Luckily, as fate would have it, we found Highgate Cottages and they had a vacancy. Keith & Sue were very welcoming and immediately offered us tea on the lawn which was delightful. We had a good night's sleep and then a charming breakfast with the breakfast room doors open onto the garden and sweet bird song. I can fully endorse the previous reviews and highly recommend anyone who is in the area or passing through to stay a night or more. The other reviewers have said what I would have wanted to say as well-- In a word, Perfect! If you are booking ahead get Keith & Sue to reserve you a table at the good food pub that is within walking distance as it gets fully booked in the evening very quickly.

Lovely stay, thank you. The Burtle is a beautiful room and very comfortable. Good sightseeing nearby.

We had a wonderful weekend at Highgate Cottage. Our room was very comfortable, we slept soundly and woke to gorgeous views and the atmospheric gentle chimes of the beautiful grandfather clock in the hall. The cottage is warm, welcoming and has everything you might need for a relaxing weekend in the country. There are numerous nearby attractions (Wells, Glastonbury, Wookey Hole etc) and scenic walks. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and they have made Highgate Cottage into a beautiful B&B with lots of homely touches to enhance your stay. We would definitely go back and recommend Highgate Cottage to our friends.

 We stayed at Highgate Cottage for a long weekend in February. We had two rooms one with a corner bath, and one with a shower. The rooms were beautifully appointed and tastfully decorated. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. The hosts were accomodating and made us feel most welcome.

A great location close to Wells and all the local attractions. Look out for the Kingfisher that sits by the river. We will return.
