We loved staying at the Watermead Guest House. We stayed in the family room which was perfect for our needs:plenty of room, microwave, fridge, tv and lounge area, and separate to the main house which meant we didn't have to worry about keeping the children quiet! In addition to this, we were served a great breakfast with food sourced from the local area. Finally, don't be concerned that "High Street"forms part of the address since the property is set back from the road and so it is pretty quiet.It's a great place to stay if you want to spend time in Lyme Regis and the surrounding area.

Attending Silver Wedding Celebration - Rating 5/5

We booked a 4 night break at Watermead Guest House from 3rd Sept 2014. Everything, and I mean everything was superb. Lovely twin room with extremely comfortable beds, Small but adequate en suite facilities with very hot water. Although we were at the top of the stairs we never heard any guests passing our door. Extremely quiet position about 20 yards off the main road. Breakfasts were truly superb cooked by Dave and his eggs which I tried fried, boiled and poached were lip smacking gorgeous and so beautifully compact. (The sign of a fresh farm egg!) Trudy was a lovely lady, always greeted you by your first name and really interested in how you had spent your day as also was Dave. My husband and I cannot praise too highly the enjoyable stay we had with Trudy and Dave. Plus we had a lovely time with our 25th wedding anniversary friends who we hadn't seen for quite a number of years.If you are anywhere around Chard then visit the Watermead Guest House.

A charming and friendly guesthouse! - Rating 5/5

Trudy and David are the perfect hosts in a perfect guesthouse. We had a lovely three day stay in their elegant, quiet, clean and friendly home. Their breakfasts were excellent and kept you full for all of the day and there was always more tea and coffee offered. Trudy and David were always helpful with advice on the local and surrounding areas to make your stay more enjoyable. The extra touches such as the homemade biscuits made it even more special. We would give it a 10/10! and would recommend your establishment to all our family and friends.

a "Gem" - Rating 5/5

I googled a B&B in Chard for an overnight business visit, and I found Watermead. I travel extensively for my work and have stayed in many places, hotels, guest houses, B&B's. It is difficult to write something here which sums up Watermead.. I would just suggest you visit and find out for yourself, even if you have to travel a few miles out of your way. Holiday or business you will not be disappointed. Thanks Trudy and Dave. Zak sends his love!!!

Always a warm welcome and pleasant experience - Rating 5/5

First visited WGH in September 2005, when attending our eldest daughter's wedding, and on that occasion our group of five stayed in the family room, which more than fulfilled our requirements.Since that initial 2-night stay, we have during the last 12-months alone, stayed a further five times.We both find the accommodation pleasant and quiet, as well as offering a lovely night's rest with a very hearty and enjoyable breakfast to follow.The welcome afforded by both Trudy &David is first-class, making our stay very relaxing and at ease.We are firm believers in that once you find somewhere that meets and exceeds your needs and where the price does not drain your purse, then why keep looking elsewhere.Whilst we have the need to continue coming down to Somerset to see our daughter and her family, then we will always try to stay with Trudy &David.

Having tried many hotels in the region to stay at with a toddler and a small dog, I think we have finally found the one we shall stay at from here forward.The studio has plenty of space, (as tested by our three year old running back and forth), was spotlessly clean, had good parking and offered everything we could want.The best part was being separate from the main house, our little lad could run, play and enjoy himself without constant shushing from Mum and Dad!Cannot recommend the Watermead enough! We shall be back soon.

We booked one night on our way to holiday in Devon, to avoid the M5 holiday madness. It is so difficult to find good accommodation for a family of 5 without having to book 2 rooms.

Best B&B I have ever stayed in - Rating 5/5

This truly is a gem and I can thoroughly recommend it. The owners, Dave and Trudy, are genuinely friendly and have put in the time and effort and given a lot of thought to ensure visitors needs are met. The rooms are spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with extras normally found in far more expensive hotels. The car park is safe and well lit. Breakfast was excellent with ingredients locally sourced. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and the breakfast room and guest lounge were of a high standard. Watermead is more of a “boutique hotel” than a guest house. I will most definitely stay here again, it exceeded my expectations in all respects.

A Perfect Place - Rating 5/5

I pre-booked a one night stay at the Watermead Guest House online whilst touring about in Somerset and Devon.It was my first ever visit to Chard in Somerset but what an absolutely lovely guest house.The room was lovely and clean with an en-suite bathroom.Parking was no problem thanks to a nice large car park for the guests, and even though the guest house is just off the main road which made it easy to find its so very quiet.David and Trudy were both very helpful and friendly and told us about two local places were we could get an evening meal.The following morning an excellent breakfast made from local produce set us up for the day.It was a pity that I only had one night at the Watermead before I moved on but I would certainly recommend the guest house to anyone wanting a stay in the area.And I will certainly be returning to the Watermead on my next visit to Somerset.

We decided to travel down to the Somerset, Devon, Dorset region over the Easter weekend 2011 and pre-booked online to stay at the Watermead Guest House in Chard.The guest house was easy to find, with plenty of parking space off of the main road. On arriving, the owners were very welcoming and helpful, and continued to be so throughout our stay. The room was clean and bright and just what I had booked, while breakfast was also very pleasant.Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly think about returning if visiting this area again in the future!!
