About Us

The No. 1 B&B For Bishopswood And Buckland St Mary, In The Beautiful Blackdown Hills - opening again from July 6th 2021 for direct bookings and 2 night minimum stays.

The house dates back to the 1750’s and retains fine original features. We are approx 750 feet above sea level here, and the air is clean and pure. A footpath runs past our front door and the only traffic is the occasional walker or horse rider. The views from here are amazing, the peace and tranquility are second to none, making Lodge House B&B an ideal place for a stress-relieving break, away from the hustle and bustle of busy everyday life.


Just minutes from the A303 yet Lodge House is a peaceful relaxing place to stay.

When our guests arrive we want them to relax, leave their troubles at the door and step into a world of home comfort and rest. As owners we intend to see that every attention is paid to detail and service.

We offer a full English breakfast each morning, with a vegetarian and light option, using local produce where possible, free range eggs from our own hens, homemade bread and home made preserves from our fruit trees and bushes when available and our own honey. Our 2 rooms are south-facing, comfortable guest bedrooms with antique furniture and modern touches and are ready to embrace the individual who is looking for peace and quiet, or the more adventurous person who likes to be active such as walkers and cyclists. One room has an adjacent private bathroom that has been furnished to a high specification and the 2nd floor Blue room is ensuite.

We offer complementary therapies such as Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Aromatherapy massage to guests at an additional cost.

Coming from London or SE England, then we are approximately a 2 ½ to 3 hours drive away

A good stopping of point en route to Cornwall. The Blackdown Hills can seem like a different world and is attractive to those people who have the need to get away but do not have the time to go too far.

Therapeutic Breaks

Because of the complementary therapies we offer, Lodge House B&B is a unique choice for people looking for a relaxing break.

Your host Kathy Arnold is also a qualified complementary therapist, who has a treatment room on the 2nd floor of Lodge House. Why not combine your stay at Lodge House with a session or two of Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Hopi Ear Candles or Indian Head Massage

The sheer beauty of our setting must be experienced and enjoyed. Nestled in the Blackdown Hills, just next to the Devon border, with a lovely view of the fields, Lodge House B&B is the ideal place to listen to the birds sing and take in Mother Nature. A pretty cottage garden makes this setting a truly lovely place.

Local Pubs:- we have 2 local pubs.  There is a local gastro pub in Bishopswood, The Candlelight Inn, with an excellent restaurant which is within walking distance, and another local pub, La Campagna formerly the Eagle Tavern, on the A303 is just a short drive away. Both are great for evening meals.

Guests at Lodge House Bed & Breakfast will feel pampered, and will leave for home well rested.  So if you are looking for a Guest House in Somerset, look no further.  We are a non smoking establishment and dogs are not permitted as we have 2 lovely long haired black cats, called Forest and Toto.
