    It was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Overpriced. Dreadfully undertrained and inexperienced staff, and for all its quiet country location it was so noisy. No traffic - no noisy talking, just the quacking of 100s of ducks!! And the smell from nearly dry duck ponds was awful. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. They had a quaint idea of providing milk in a communal fridge down the corridor but not once during our stay did we ever find milk, or anyone to replenish the jug. One of my biggest disappointments, but I have to admit to just being really grumpy about the lack of service etc, was the fact that here we were, in beautiful Somerset, in summer, and all the flowers in the rooms and entrance areas were .... plastic. I couldn't believe it. Amazingly they quote rave reviews but I think they need to take a fresh look at themselves. No staff were around from about 8:15 p.m. tll after 7:00 a.m. At £80 per night this was very poor value for money.

    We were woken early by the ducks and guinea fowl so we made an early start to have breakfast in Ilminster. This turned out to be a lovely little town the only downside was that there was nothing open and it was not until 9:00 o'clock that we found somewhere for coffee and breakfast. And even that wasn't simple. Opening hours said it was open at 9: …

    ... most picturesque town I've been to yet, Bradford believe it or not! Then Weston super Mare gave me my first view of the Bristol Channel, and the sea since heading in land from Middlesbrough. My host Howard put on a hearty feast of chicken stew, noodles and chocolate brownie cake. Delicious! Thanks ...

    ... They also had a go at hooking a bag of goodies,etc. Back to the chalet for a rest before going to dinner.

    The evening we went to the Scooby Doo show which was on the Centre Stage, again costumes, props and changes of scenery were brilliant, they made it interactive with the kids, both of the boys loved it, must have been on for nearly an hour. Then Louie went on soft play and Jacob went with grandad to ...

    ... tongue began to swell up. We went back to the car and found some benedryl that you helps to offset the reaction happening in her blood. Between the rain and the swarm of bees it was not a good way to begin our gardening tour! After about an hour she came around and we were back at it. I will leave you some pictures that help to illuminate how the rest of our day ...
