About Mr Chris Weaver
We reside on the premises at Sticklinch Farm and have lived in Somerset for over 13 years. Our married daughter, Anna, lives nearby in Wells with our four grandchildren. We have two married sons - Andrew and Robert both qualified GPs. Chris and Jan have both recently retired. We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle in Somerset and have developed the 4 acre plot to accommodate our growing number of small farm animals. Our paddock extends at the rear up towards West Pennard Hill. Our flock of sheep are very friendly and will allow you to tickle their chins with a little help from some sheep nuts! We have Hampshire Downs sheep which this year produced 12 lambs between them! Also around the small holding are four pigmy goats. We have a variety of hens and ducks producing fresh eggs. You could also try goose eggs from our Pilgrim geese. We own a friendly Border Collie called Peter, who loves playing ball games with children ,and some gorgeous looking cats. We are very happy to show you around the small holding and chat about the good life!
Mr Chris Weaver purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Mr Chris Weaver chose Glastonbury
Having lived previously near London, we often talked about escaping to the country and in 2005 , we did it! Somerset is so laid back and friendly but we can still catch a train and get to London to enjoy concerts. Bristol and Bath are also cultural centers nearby.

Sticklinch Farm Cottage Aug 2019
It was lovely waking to the sound of the various cockerels at the small-holding, trying to out-do each other. The sound of the wild birds was all around us, very easy to lose yourself.
The accommodation was light, airy and spacious, finished to a high standard. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Loads to do all around and to entertain children with plenty of places to eat.
Lovely peaceful stay
Property was very clean and well-equipped. Everything worked well.
We were made to feel very welcome and children loved helping to feed the animals. We were even treated to some yummy eggs from the chickens and veggies from the garden!. Hot tub was great. Property was in a very quiet location but not far from local towns.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday, perfect location for a family holiday, plenty to do and the farm was a huge hit at Sticklinch! Thank you
So glad you enjoyed your stay on the farm and were able to help on the daily feeding programme
Peace and quiet in the country side.
Great place for a family or small group. Be aware the second bedroom is detached from the main house with a separate entrance (In case you have children using that room). The hosts are friendly and happy to give you a tour of the property, the animals, and suggestions for local restaurants and attractions. Very clean, and well appointed, especially the kitchen.
Heaven with a hot tub
Fantastic base to see the surronding area. Great to explore the area directly on your doorstep too. Hot tub was heavenly, especially good for my back after a days walking, 18 months since major back surgery and now complete with 2 titanium rods.Loved seeing the animals on the farm. Accomodation was great though TV channels not upto much, fortunately was there over the very hot Easter weekend so not in need of too much technology, though my boys may beg to differ as couldn't connect to wifi in the twin room.
Would definitely stay there again if back in the area
I visited with my two daughters (10 and 8 in age) who both love animals! My youngest loved playing with Peter the Border Collie every day (and would quite happily have brought him home!) and my eldest enjoyed sitting inside the bunny hutch cuddling the 3 fluffies! We all got to hold a lamb and loved the cheeky goats!
The property is well situated for visiting so many places; i didn't like to drag the girls away from the animals too much so opted to only visit a few places but now have many more on my list for another visit!
We used the hot tub twice, (not bad for early April!) and found it all hugely relaxing, with a lovely view! My Dad came down to join us for a night which Chris and Jan accommodated well, and didn't mind having to change sheets etc for only one night! We used the laundry machine too whilst there, and all in all felt a home-from-home atmosphere.
I had this place recommended to me and would not hesitate to recommend to others for some peace, quiet, walking, animals to play with and family time.
Thank you Chris and Jan!
