Quiet location in an idyllic little village. Friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble. When we arrived we found we had a flat tyre which we were unable to get replaced until the following day. The landlord insisted we took his car so as not to lose a day of our holiday! How amazing is that! Locals were also very friendly. We initially booked 4 nights bed and breakfast but stayed another night as it was so good. We also had our evening meal most nights in the pub also as the food was lovely.
It is a traditional old pub which is very welcoming, open lunchtime and evenings. The rooms are in a separate block around the back of the pub and are clean and spacious. We didn't experience any noise from the pub at all during our stay. TV, Hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities provided including biscuits and bottles of still and sparkling water, all replenished daily if required. Rooms serviced daily. The New Inn is actually in Dowlish Wake which is a five minute drive from Ilminster, and is situated just down the road from Perrys Cider Farm, which is well worth a visit. It is well placed for visiting Somerset and Devon with lots to see and do on your doorstep. A delightful place to stay and we would highly recommend it for the price!
