The Mount SomersetLower Henlade, Taunton, Somerset, TA3 5NB

An elegant Regency country house, cradled by both the Quantocks and the Blackdown Hills, the Mount Somerset is the 'Most Excellent Country Hotel' in the UK, noted for its elegance and warmth.

High ceilings, large windows and a fabulous, sweeping, circular staircase create a sense of spaciousness and elegance. Real log fires, abundant scatter cushions and antique pictures and ornaments add extra warmth and colour.

Take an indulgent Afternoon Tea at The Mount Somerset and tuck into tasty sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and jam and a delicious selection of cakes, all accompanied by fine tea.
