The Experience

This whitewashed cottage is full of surprises. Daisy has restored it using reclaimed everything, the quirkier the better: painted or gold-leafed pieces, polished boards, beautiful bedheads and Indian banister, clever clothes hooks… Bedrooms, all differently styled, have well-dressed beds and fantastic bathrooms. The breakfast room opens to a sunny terrace and has separate tables that can all be put together for friends and a snug sofa by the wood-burner. Daisy loves to cook: homemade granola, bread, jams, local bacon, eggs from her parents’ smallholding, cakes. There’s a gallery in one of the barns selling Daisy’s sister’s art and mother’s pottery – pop in to have a browse. Cheddar and Glastonbury are 20 minutes.

A perfect base to explore the surrounding area. Wells and Glastonbury are nearby and driving around the countryside in the beautiful autumn weather was such a pleasure. Our stay at Mt Pleasant was very pleasant indeed! Daisy is the perfect Hostess - her full English breakfast is so delicious and filling that you won’t need to think about eating again until dinner. Our room was warm and cozy and decorated in a interesting style. There was also a tea and coffee tray set up in our room that included the best shortbread I have ever tasted. It would be worth going back just for that!

Karen, Nottingham

A home away from home. The breakfast was legendary and Daisy made us all feel so welcome. Having a dip in the pool and a wander round the gardens were highlights. We also got lots of recommendations of local places to explore. We will definitely be back

Ellen, Bristol

Repeat guests. My partner and I had to come back to Mount pleasant as we enjoyed our first visit so much. The weather was perfect, so we got to dip in the pool this time and do some lovely walks in the area. The pub also does amazing food, which is just a walk away. Would highly recommend Mount Pleasant to anyone.

David, Bristol

Mount Pleasant is a welcoming, cosy, home from home. The location is fantastic for visiting beautiful Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury and Wells, and we had a wonderful stay. The B&B has the most beautiful atmosphere and every detail is catered for perfectly. The rooms are stunning but don’t sacrifice any comforts, so it’s lovely to make yourself at home in. Nothing is too much for Daisy and her breakfast is legendary, setting your up perfectly for a day of exploring. We’d actually never stayed in a B&B before, but I would go back in a heartbeat and look forward to our next stay.

Alexandra, Northallerton

Such a lovely stay. Daisy is such a wonderful host and the rooms and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. We don’t live too far away, so will definitely be visiting again (and again).

Jennifer, Bristol

We've just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at the Mount Pleasant Farm B & B for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. Initially attracted by the distinctive design and decor of the Curlew & Hare room, the room, setting and food all exceeded our expectations. Daisy was a charming, friendly and thoughtful host. Our breakfasts were gorgeous and included lovely local produce and Daisy's delicious home made marmalade and jams and her helpful restaurant suggestions allowed us to make reservations in advance, which was particularly helpful given current restrictions.

Ann, Haywards Heath

Mount Pleasant farm is a beautiful cottage set in a beautiful location and really well priced for what is included. We were so lucky to arrive on a beautiful sunny day and made good use of the outdoor pool which made us feel like we were staying in a villa abroad! The house itself is decorated perfectly and breakfast was amazing! My partner and I wolfed it down not leaving anything on the plate. As for the owner Daisy, she was so lovely and amazing at her job, she made us feel so comfortable and went out of her way to welcome us! Thank you Daisy!

Carrie, Bath

Don't be put off by the less than swish frontage and arrival - once inside you will be seduced! Gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms, homebaked bread and proper Aga fry up for breakfast, wonderful walking paths from the door and best of all Daisy - she's warm, funny and a natural-born B&Ber.

Nicola - Sawday's inspector, Bristol

A simply excellent place to stay with gorgeous rooms - the copper bath was as good as it looked - in the middle of nowhere but with an excellent pub in walking distance. Daisy’s home-made granola, home-baked bread and locally sourced breakfast were divine and she is the most welcoming, entertaining host you could wish for. A real home-from-home - only miles better than that!


Just spent 4 days at this haven in Somerset. Daisy is so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We relaxed in the Copper bath tub. We drifted off to sleep in our sumptuous bed in the Copper Pear surrounded by beautiful decor, with the occasional and gentle sound of happy bleating sheep. We ate heartily from her amazing breakfasts and her cakes too, so kind. We swam in her lovely heated pool. This is a a rustic heaven. Just have to add a little comment re Milo the ginger kitten who was adorable and liked a good play and a lap to settle upon. We really hope to return soon. Jayne & Andy

Jayne, Upware

We've just returned from our second visit and we are already looking forward to returning. It's just the sort of place you want to return time and time again! Daisy is a fabulous host, warm, friendly and definitely goes the extra mile to make sure her guests feel well looked after. The accomodation is beautiful and full of stylish and quirky objects, fittings and furniture. Our bed was amazingly comfortable, the wetroom fabulous, and lots of lovely little touches including a delicious cake and great hot drinks selection. Daisy's breakfasts are to die for. Delicious and top notch quality.

Brigitte, Swindon

Stunning! Daisy is the kindest, most thoughtful and welcoming of hosts. She went the extra mile for our vegan daughter, baking a vegan cake and providing all she would need. Our rooms were beautiful and full of wonderful things to look at and enjoy. Luxurious bathrooms, toiletries, and bath robes. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. There was a fabulous vegetarian and vegan breakfast provided to meet our requests with everything home made, the bread, the vegetarian sausages, jam and marmalade. The house and grounds have great character and care put into every aspect.

Jill, London

Pristine comfort - outstanding bathrooms, superlative breakfast, warm, friendly host. Could not recommend more highly.

Lesley, St Albans

We both loved it and we cannot recommend this place highly enough. The farmhouse has been totally renovated to provide self-contained accommodation with bedrooms and a sitting room, each imaginatively decorated with state of the art fittings and luxurious linen. It’s quiet and peaceful with wonderful views. Daisy is friendly and welcoming and went out of her way to provide everything we needed to make our stay special. Homemade bread and granola (yes really homemade) and flap jacks to accompany early morning tea/coffee. We could go on. But don’t take our word for it - do stay there if you are in the area.

Juliet, London

We highly recommend the Mount Pleasant farm House. Wonderfull room decorated with style and charm, lovely hostes who pamper you with a top-of-the pop breakfast. The nearby pub The Wheatsheaf..... is a lovely place where delicious food is served.

Gitte, Aarhus

Highly recommend. Daisy's created a lovely feel to the place and gave me very warm welcome - home baked flapjacks on very late arrival which I had with a cuppa (best selection I've seen in a room) after a late dip. Booked for the rooms eg copper bath, and extra special feel, and wasn't disappointed. Lovely breakfast too. Would definitely come again as a treat. Fellow Danish guest said the pub good was great also.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Daisy Nicolaou

  • Ashton windmill, the last remaining windmill in Somerset can be seen from some of our bedroom windows. It's a mere 2 minute walk from the B&B and is a great place to see the sunset. (Open Wednesdays and Sundays from Easter through to the end of summer).
  • Just a short drive from the b&b there are many delightful places to eat - head for Wedmore that has The Swan and The George for two yummy places to eat. Don’t forget to book a taxi well in advance as there aren’t many round these parts!
  • We are a small drive from the ancient village of Cheddar, not only famous for its cheese but home to the beautiful Gorge and caves. It lies with in a designated site of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding national beauty!
  • Wells - one of the smallest cities in England, nestled in the foot of the Mendip hills. Home to the splendid 12th century cathedral, the beautiful Bishops Palace, 14th century Vicars Close and 18th century town hall.
  • There is a traditional open air farmers' market held in Wells every Wednesday & Saturday at the old Market Place offering local produce, scrumptious food & drink, arts & craft & much more. The city boosts a wide range of restaurants and independent shops.
  • If a day trip out with the possibility of a cream tea afterwards is more your thing then there are plenty of National Trust/English Heritage places for you to enjoy - Barrington Court, Lytes Cary Manor, Montacute House, Tyntesfield to name a few!
