Accommodation in the heart of South Somerset

The Flying Fish Stables accommodation remains open for guests who meet the Government's criteria for overnight stays

(please refer to

If you do not meet this criteria, please do not book a room.

If you are not sure, please call us on 01823 480 467.

We will be offering guests a limited room service evening menu. Alternatively, guests may bring their own food in and will supply crockery and cutlery.  We will not be offering a cooked breakfast but can provide cereal and milk if required to accompany the tea/coffee making facilities in the room.


We have 8 exceptionally spacious, modern, en-suite rooms in a quiet, separate building known as The Stables, located opposite our country pub/restaurant.  We offer 6 rooms with super-king beds and 2 rooms with twin single beds.  One of each room type is equipped with grab rails in the bathrooms to assist those with access issues. All rooms can accommodate wheelchairs (there is a small step up from the car park to the room doors).  A veranda spans the width of the building, providing a very pleasant, covered, private seating area directly outside each room, with chairs and a table and each area is separated by a low-level fence.  There is complimentary parking outside each room.  All rooms have complimentary WiFi, Smart TVs, tea/coffee making facilities, 

a writing desk, 2 tub chairs and a table. The spacious, modern bathrooms have baths and

separate walk-in showers (our 2 accessible rooms have walk-in showers only), heated towel rails and complimentary shower gel.  

If you are worried about social distancing, in the current Coronovirus climate, The Flying Fish Stables accommodation should alleviate any fears you may have.  Each room has private parking right outside the door (motel style).  There is no need to 'check in' at reception (a simple phone call on arrival will suffice). There is no 'communal area' to negotiate to get to your room so maintaining your personal space should not be a problem.  Further, we can serve food and drink to your room 

if you prefer not to dine in our pub/restaurant.

We pride ourselves on our standards of cleanliness and all common surfaces in your room will be treated with

antibacterial cleaning materials during the regular cleaning schedule.  Futher, your room will be sprayed with "Dew" a highly effective product which complies with EN12576 and EN14476.  It is 30 times more effective than bleach yet contains no alcohol or chemicals, is not tested on animals and is environmentally friendly and vegan and skin and material friendly.

We are pet-friendly and charge a £10 supplement per night for dogs (£5 for additional dogs, max 2 per room).

We are family-friendly and 2 children up to the age of 16 can be added to any room with a fold-up bed

for an additional £20 per child (max 2 per room), including breakfast.  

The room rate includes The Flying Fish breakfast – a choice of offerings, freshly prepared, to get your morning off to

a great start, served in our cosy, country pub just next door, or in your room if you prefer. 

It is here also that we can offer you a range of drinks and delicious evening meals, seven days a week.

With the personal touch, convenient location for both business and pleasure, amid stunning surroundings,

why stay at a chain hotel when you can stay at The Flying Fish?!
