Model Farm is a country house consisting of an impressive Victorian front to a 17th century farmhouse and cider barn. The accommodation is all in one house, sleeping 25 in 10 bedrooms, 5 en-suite with 3 bathrooms. The Victorian area retains many of the original features, high ceilings with impressive cornicing, original fireplaces and stained glass windows. There is a large kitchen/diner and a large lounge with seating on leather Chesterfields. There is also an additional kitchen/diner in the Cider Barn with table football table and just outside a large covered loggia with BBQ area suitable for outside dining.
There are 4 acres of glorious gardens with large selection of different plants designed around being wildlife friendly, you will find plants of interest throughout all the seasons of the year. There is a log fired Scandinavian style Hot Tub seating 8 people and several patio areas, with plenty of seating throughout the grounds. We also have a croquet lawn, football area with large goal, lots of outdoor games and ample off road parking.
We tend to specialise in large groups for the weekend normally for 2 nights, Friday and Saturday and you don't need to leave until Sunday afternoon if you wish. This is around 2/3 the price of a weeks stay. A 3 night stay or mid-week stay is also available. We are happy for all types of group to stay apart from very young adults and stag parties. We will also consider up to 2 dogs per group.
We have just completed a 55 sq. m Orangery which can be used as a function room, please contact Dave and Roz if you are interested in using this area.
Model Farm is situated in the hamlet of Perry Green only 8 minutes by car from Bridgwater, yet in the peace and quiet of the country. Junctions 23 and 24 of the M5 are only 5 miles away. The Quantock Hills are a short drive away and there are plenty of footpaths in the area with some excellent walking where you can visit the many pubs in the local area for a great lunch or dinner. The village of Cannington with its pubs and gardens is a pleasant walk away and also has a golf course, horse riding, paintball/laser shooting and an adventure climbing area.
