About Mr Chris Weaver

We reside on the premises at Sticklinch Farm and have lived in Somerset for over 11 years. Our married daughter, Anna, lives nearby in Wells with our four grandchildren. We have two married sons - Andrew, a qualified GP and Robert, also training as a GP. 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 14 lambs between them! Also around the small holding are three pigmy goats which may produce sweet kids during the yea. We have a variety of hens and ducks producing fresh eggs. You could also try goose eggs from our Pilgrim geese. We own two friendly Border Collies called Lulu and Peter 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 cottage 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.

What makes this cottage unique

Where else can you sit out in a hot tub under a clear sky and gaze at the stars without any light pollution !

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sticklinch farm. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed . Our hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the hot tub was lovely! We all enjoyed meeting the farm animals and the surroundings were stunning. Perfect relaxing getaway - thank you.

Superb family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property itself has everything you need whilst on holiday. Everything is good quality and it's spotlessly clean. Sitting out in the hot tub in the evening was incredibly relaxing.

Great location. Quiet yet easy access to RSPB reserves, Longleat, Wells, Glastonbury, Weymouth etc. Chris and Jan were fantastic hosts. The children loved collecting the eggs and playing with the dogs. They've already asked when are we going back.

perfect place to spend easter

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place we will definitely go back. The accommodation was perfect for our family of five (kids 9, 7 and 2) but it was the farm and all the animals that just made it so enjoyable and memorable. Newly born lambs and chicks, finding chicken and duck eggs, playing ball with Peter the dog the list is endless. To top it off we ended the days in the hot tub. The property is so well situated to visit cheddar gorge, wookey hole, wells, Glastonbury plus other places. Chris and Jan are fantastic and made our stay so much more memorable with all the extra little bits esp the Easter basket with the baby chicks in. Thank you so So much hope to see you both, peter, Lulu,flora and all the other animals again soon.
