Reported in the Bridgwater Mercury : “A B&B near Bridgwater has beaten stiff competition to win the title of the the B&B with the best breakfast. Huntstile Organic Farm scooped the award for breakfast like no other in a nationwide competition organised by Dorset Cereals.

The award was presented in a ceremony on Friday November 20.

Lizzie said: “Huntstile Organic Farm is a rural retreat where guests can relax and sample the best organic Somerset fare. “We are very passionate about our food, trying to produce as much of the food we serve as possible. Our motto is ‘Love Your Food’ so we’re delighted to have been recognised for our breakfast in the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards.”
