A country house with scrumptious food, a friendly black labrador and croquet on the lawn. When their daughters flew the nest, Liz and Richard opened an independent wing of their listed house: perfect for families and couples. You have two pretty bedrooms (one up, one down) with country furniture and super bathrooms. In winter, a wood-burner keeps your little sitting room cosy; in summer, laze in a sea of flowers. You feast on local eggs, homemade bread and delicious dinners with garden veg. Just off the village road, it's close to Bristol airport, the M5 and Wells. And with hosts this friendly you can't go wrong.

"A warm welcome with tea and cake on arrival. Liz and Richard are so lovely and hospitable it really made our stay so special. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the garden is enchanting. Everything about the place, owners and our stay was wonderful. We will definitely be back to visit. One of the best B& B's I have stayed in :-)"

"Such a lovely place. The welcome is just that " friendly and welcoming" - the gin and tonic hit the spot !. You could not get better food in a restaurant and the room with bathroom modern and really clean. Will stay there again"

"Lovely bedrooms, impressive bathrooms, wood burners to keep us cosy in November, also superb breakfasts. Liz and Richard were wonderfully welcoming without being intrusive and we enjoyed staying there with our three children (10, 12, 14) for 2 nights. Liz's cakes in the afternoon were an unexpected bonus. It was also really nice to have our own front door. We enjoyed a circular walk around Cheddar gorge nearby and visited the SS Great Britain in Bristol. Liz and Richard lent us the maps we needed for the walk and were very helpful with information about things to do. Very much recommended."

"This is a real find. The owners Richard and Liz could not have been more hospitable and friendly, the rooms were beautifully kept and you had access to your own living room with a real log fire. We had a very enjoyable 2 nights there and would highly recommend anyone who needs a stopping off point enroute to Devon and Cornwall to stay here. The best for last: Breakfast. Just the best. Absolutely delicious. They even do evening meals that you can book in advance. We were too late arriving on Friday and at a wedding on the Saturday, but am planning to go back and sample the food!"

"We stayed for three nights at Liz & Richard's wonderful B & B. What a relaxing welcome we had after a frustrating journey from London. Tea & scones were enjoyed in the lovely dining room that is for their guests. Later we sat in the garden with a glass of wine while Liz cooked a lovely meal for us. Breakfasts were superb and the whole experience made for a wonderful weekend. Thoroughly recommend Stonebridge B & B to anyone wanting to enjoy a really special experience."

"Stonebridge hs set a standard which other B&B's would be hard pressed to equal. Liz & Richard were superb hosts. Their warm welcome started a most enjoyable 4-day stay with two friends. The comfortable well appointed bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms were ideal. The breakfasts and dinners were beautifull cooked and presented, each meal was a gourmet experience. We highly recommend this delightful B&B in its lovely grounds and well placed for enjoying the magnificent Somerset counrside and visiting many places of interest. "

"What a wonderful B&B! Liz and Richard were the perfect hosts, so warm and welcoming. Our room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with the welcome addition of our own private living area. The setting is very pretty and the gardens are immaculate. The attention to detail was very much appreciated; from the homemade treats on arrival and the delicious breakfasts through to the robes and complimentary toiletries, it almost felt like a boutique hotel. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer."

"After a long week followed by a long drive we were lucky enough to find ourselves in the capable, charming and immensely likeable hands of Richard and Liz. We had come from a week staying at the Hilton in London and although lovely, was not a patch on our single night at Stonebridge. Great food, hame made bread, our own wood burner and a bedroom and en-suite I wish we had back home. We'll go whenever we are passing and so should you. "

"We greatly enjoyed all aspects of our stay. We arrived to find the fire lit in our private lounge and tea and home-made cake served. Our room was pleasingly furnished and had an excellent new bath-room. Breakfast and dinner on the two nights we stayed were beautifully cooked and presented. Liz and Richard were charming and helpful hosts."

"We had a lovely weekend stay at Stonebridge, Liz and Richard are wonderful host, you know its different when welcomed and escorted into the house under Richards large umbrella. Tea and super homemade cakes prepared by Liz settled us in. Two well furnished bedrooms and parlour equipped with a log burner were ours to enjoy for the weekend. Both en-suite bathrooms fitted out to a very good standard. One bedroom is on the 1st floor accessed via a staircase in keeping with the house, safe but watch your head when going up or down. We ate locally on the Saturday, taking dinner at Stonebridge on the Sunday evening. We were asked to select in advance from a varied menu, of three courses, selecting from a choice of three for each. Liz then prepared a beautiful meal for us to enjoy that evening, varying from wild mushrooms on brioche toast to a twice baked crab soufflé for starters, Fillet of pork stroganoff and roast chicken with lemon, rosemary and garlic for main followed by a gorgeous lemon posset and a chocolate tart for dessert, finished off with fair-trade coffee and tea. Stonebridge is well placed for visiting the many attractions in the area. We opted for SS Great Britain and Tyntsfield (NT). There was even a guide book for the SS Great Britain on a shelf in the bedroom, another nice touch. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It was excellent value and we will certainly be back to stay and visit the area again. Whilst Liz and Richard are new to Sawday they are upholding the standards and ethos many of us have enjoyed staying at a Sawday registered locations over the years."
