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 look forward to welcoming you. Please contact us by phone or email to enquire availability, or you can check our current room availability using the 'Enquire Online' (calendar icon) above.
What our guests have to say about us….
Well it might not be exactly red, white & blue but it’s definitely the prettiest, most delicious afternoon tea this side of SL4!!! #afternoontea #lemoncake #teapot
Feeling happy because it’s Friday, it’s a beautiful day, and I’m cooking!! #happy #fridayfeeling #lovetocook
Two traditional cooked breakfasts and two Bircher-muesli bowls his morning. After clearing away and doing B&B guest rooms I’ve treated myself to locally-produced Brown & Forrest Smokery smoked salmon & scrambled eggs. I think that’s called chef’s perks?!
Want to learn the secret to making the perfect, buttery, potato rosti? I serve these with smoked haddock and a soft-poached egg for breakfast. What I don’t mention in the vid is to pan fry them for about 4-5 mins over a moderate heat, and then when they’re starting to brown nicely round the outsides flip them over for another 4-5mins to do the other side. They’ll keep warm in the oven while you get your perfectly soft-poached eggs ready. Or should it be scrambled, or fried eggs.....? You decide!! #recipe #weekendbrunch #lazybreakfast
