"A Fine 3 Star country hotel at the gateway to the West Country." Ashley Counteney Hotel Guide
The Lordleaze Hotel, once an 18th Century farmhouse, is a fine country hotel offering the highest standards with a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Set in a secluded area on the Somerset, Dorset, Devon borders it is surrounded by natural pasture land but only three minutes away from Chard town centre.
It is a perfect location for those seeking peace and tranquillity.
In 2016 we have continued to upgrade the hotel with new beds with pocket sprung mattresses, new soft furnishings in all the bedrooms and super fast free WI-FI throughout the Hotel.
The twenty-five tastefully decorated bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms, freeview television, radio, telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, trouser press and iron, hairdryer and other small touches for your comfort.
There are two family bedrooms and a four-poster bedroom with the rest being made up of double or twin bedded rooms.
Seven of the rooms are on the ground floor, some of which have disabled facilities. All rooms are of course available for single occupancy.
We are pleased to welcome you for your special occasions, Weddings, Private Parties, Anniversaries, Conferences and Meetings.
Our function room can accommodate 120 guests for a sit down meal and up to 200 guests can be accommodated for buffets.
Sample a superb meal in our conservatory restaurant. We have recently been awarded Taste Of The West Gold Award for our sourcing, cooking and services of local produce.
The inviting atmosphere, top quality food and service should not be missed.
Dogs and small pets are allowed in certain bedrooms for a charge of £10 per night, unfortunately this does not include public areas.
Axminster, Crewkerne, Ilminster &Lyme Regis are all a short drive away.
Bristol, Exeter, Taunton and Yeovil are all within a comfortable drive, as are the Fleet Air Arm and Hayes Motor Museum. There are many historic houses and gardens to visit in the area. However, don't miss Chard's own museum with its display of John Stringfellow's first powered aeroplane. Chard, where John Stringfellow invented the first powered aeroplane, is situated on the A30 London-Exeter road and just a few miles from junction 25 on the M5 at Taunton.
We are approximately half way between Marble Arch &Land's End! Exit the A303 at Ilminster and head for Chard - a perfect stop off or centre for touring.
This is an ideal base for visiting town, country or coast.
