Keepers Cottage, Wood Lane, Butleigh, Somerset, BA6 8TR

Situated on a quiet country lane on the outskirts of the village of Butleigh, Somerset, Keepers Cottage is a small, but luxurious, boutique-style bed & breakfast. We are in an absolutely glorious spot with breathtaking views across open fields to Glastonbury Tor, Wells and the Mendip hills beyond.
Thought to date from the 1850s, Keepers Cottage was originally a two-up, two-down gamekeeper’s cottage built from the lovely, local Ham and Blue Lias stones. In more recent years previous owners extensively remodelled and renovated the cottage and outbuildings, and the gardens were enlarged and landscaped. Your hosts – Ian and Emma Taylor – moved to Keepers Cottage from neighbouring Dorset in 2015.
First and foremost this is a relaxed and comfortable family home and we offer just three guest bedroom suites – we call them Paddock, Orchard and Hay Loft. Paddock and Orchard are at either end of an annexe overlooking the garden, and Hay Loft is in a detached cottage, between the annexe and the main house. Which ever private suite you chose you'll find rustic charm with stripped wooden floors, vaulted, oak-beamed ceilings, and beautiful bathrooms. We combine this with all the usual comforts and conveniences you'd expect, and then add a dash of luxury such as sumptuous furnishings and L’Occitane toiletries, to make for what we think is a really magical combination.
We are passionate about sharing our beautiful home and as well as welcoming bed & breakfast guests, we also host occasional pop up-style dining evenings. All are welcome: B&B guests staying for the weekend, as well as those that just want to come along for dinner. In both cases booking is always essential. We are currently taking bookings for dinner on Saturday 24th February and Saturday 21st April (sorry these dates currently fully booked).
Please contact us by phone or email to enquire about dinner or bed & breakfast availability, or you can check our current room availability using the 'Enquire Online' (calendar icon) above.
What our guests have to say about us….
Some local favourites and some new places to add to our 'hit list' - what could be better?!
It's a pretty hectic morning prepping but I am so excited to be welcoming guests tonight for our first pop-up dinner of the year. Roll-on this evening!
A really hard frost this morning - but no snow, I think we've missed it sadly! After an early walk with the dogs it's back indoors for breakfast of porridge with Earl Grey raisins & toasted almonds (and a little Demerara sugar). Now on the breakfast menu and proving very popular.
It'll be no sprouts for us on Christmas Day!!! I've just done Ashburton Cookery School's Christmas meal survey for a chance to win one of their cookery courses. I trained at Ashburton and I can honestly say it was the best time ever, what a wonderful place with amazing tutors. Good luck!
