The Devonshire Arms Somerset

“This former hunting lodge, overlooking the village green, is an intimate stay for food and nature lovers. Rooms are contemporary and light offering en suite bathrooms. The restaurant prides itself on using only the finest produce and a menu revolving around this, matched with a well-stocked bar.”

“On the outside the Devonshire Arms looks like a quiet country pub (in fact a Grade-II listed former hunting lodge) in a plain village; inside, though, it’s an upmarket bistro style restaurant with rooms above: some may feel that in this case the juxtaposition is an uneasy one, both in the restaurant, with its new bar, leather chairs and sturdy wooden tables, and in the six bedrooms, with a mix of old fittings and attractive new furniture. They are, however, spacious, with unusual bathrooms and look out over the village green. In the summer months you can eat in the attractive courtyard or walled garden.”

They say

“You'll find a warm and personal welcome to the lush Somerset countryside at The Devonshire Arms, a Grade II listed former hunting lodge, set on an idyllic village green.
Step inside and you'll find an unexpectedly contemporary style, with an emphasis on quality. Our friendly staff are always on hand to ensure your visit is an enjoyable one, whether it's just for a pint in the bar, a relaxed meal from our locally sourced and daily changing menu, or a formal event in our private dining/meeting room. You can also drink and dine al fresco in our courtyard, large walled garden or overlooking the green at the front.
There are nine bedrooms, all individually designed in a fresh modern style, each with its own en-suite facilities, wide-screen TV and finishing touches you would expect from a private host.”

The Devonshire Arms

"Great, our room overlooks the green. Swiftly we take in the modern four-poster, towering mullioned windows and tea and coffee things fanned out on a bamboo dish resting on a generous windowsill."

"Step inside and there are flagstone floors, flickering church candles and battered leather sofas by a crackling log fire."
