During the Covid-19 shut down we extensively redecorated the Pen Mill Hotel, not just in the downstairs bar and restaurant but in the hotel as well.
All rooms, all walls and skirtings, all ceilings and doors were re-painted. New systems and procedures were introduced. All in all, we've made the Pen Mill an even cleaner and safer place to stay.
Our rooms are by no means palatial, but they are warm, cosy, well ventilated and spotlessly clean. Furnished with British made beds of a fantastic quality that put most five-star hotels to shame. Cheap is not an option when the bed is the hub of the room. Our Deluxe Superior room also boasts a Cornish, handmade brass bedstead. On the floor, locally made Axminster carpet. One of the best carpet’s money can buy. Our bathrooms, some large, some small, but all boast hot, powerful and relaxing showers to wake you after a sumptuous night's sleep or invigorate you after a long, hard day.
All rooms also come with Nespresso coffee machines, premium quality tea, complimentary mineral waters, and luxury biscuits, electric fans, hairdryers (hair straighteners upon request) and a personal safe. All front-facing rooms are fitted with secondary double glazing. Well done to our wonderful Housekeeper, Auntie Chris, who keeps the Pen Mill spotlessly clean for all to appreciate. She is part of the three generations of Jon & Sarah’s family that work here at the hotel.
Smart Freeview TV’s and Superfast Broadband
32” Panasonic ‘Smart’ TV’s with Freeview, Netflix and Amazon Prime Apps. Just log in and it will be like home from home. Wifi is available throughout the hotel for free. No maximum download limits. No limits on how many devices you can log on with. No hidden extra costs.
Inclusive Somerset Breakfast!
There's a fantastic Somerset Breakfast Menu, included in the price! This, according to our customer's is, 'Fantastic'. Again, check out our reviews! It is also highly commended in our Taste of the West Review. Not only can you choose a traditional ‘Full English’ or ‘Full Somerset’ as we call it. There are many other items to choose from with our Eggs Benedict, Breakfast Sandwiches, Homemade Porridge, maybe a Boiled Egg with Soldiers? Scrambled or Poached Eggs, or maybe just toast? All are made with produce bought locally and cooked fresh to order, to your liking, by either Sarah or Jon, Harry (their son) or Head Chef Sean. Also available is a selection of locally roasted coffees, tea, and other hot drinks. Croissants, pain au chocolate, fresh fruit, preserved fruit, nuts and seeds, cereal, muesli, granola, freshly squeezed orange juice, apple juice (not from concentrate) that you can help yourself to. It’s not a bad offering, we think, for a small 8 bedroom hotel.
How much is all of this? It’s all included in your rate.
Breakfast is served from 7.00am until 9.30am Monday to Friday.
and from 8.00am until 9.30am at the Weekend.

We most certainly are. Both Sarah and I are dog lovers and welcome well-behaved dogs. We provide a dog bed, dog bowls and a tasty treat for your pouches and have a fantastic field just across the road to stretch your dog's legs after a long journey. We do make a small charge of £10 per stay for this. Dogs are welcome down in the bar to join you for drinks, dinner, and breakfast but sadly not in the restaurant. We’ll hopefully be able to introduce you to George. Our wonderful Golden Retriever. He’s fast becoming a local celebrity!
