About Mick Battye
Your hosts, Mick and Maddy, bought Boxbush Farmhouse in 1995 as a family home. All the children have now left home so we now share it with our cat Smokey, dog George, two horses and some chickens which keep us busy. We enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and never tire of the scenary.

Why Mick Battye chose East Pennard
We love a challenge and Boxbush Farm was just that. A Grade II listed building, which had not been lived in for 8 years, had no water or electricity and was in a poor state of repair. We did all the renovation ourselves (apart from the thatching) We have solar PV panels on the stable roof which produce electricity for us. One of the reasons for buying it was the view we get over the Somerset Levels, and we enjoyed living in such a peaceful location.
What makes this Barn unique
The network of footpaths and tracks make excellent walking of all standards including The Monarchs Way, the escape route of Charles II.

Cosy and perfect
We were met by the owner and there was parking available. The property is very cosy - one room with a double which they had kindly separated into twins for us. Lovely kitchenette with plenty of cutlery, china and cooking utensils. The bathroom was lovely. There is a table and chairs outside and in a really sunny spot. The owners had left plenty of info for us and some lovely drinks. Thank you so much for such a great stay.

Very attractive small self catering holiday apartment on a smallholding. A beautifully converted cow byre, consisting of one room with a kitchenette, dining table, small settee, and double bed (which can be split into 2 single beds) plus a shower and toilet through a door at one end. Ideal for one person, or two people happy to share a small space. It is very clean, light, comfortable and well equipped, with patio table and 2 chairs outside. It overlooks a cobbled yard where there is parking and a pretty courtyard garden. There are lovely country views from the orchard behind the Byre. The owners are friendly and provide a warm welcome. Their cat, dog, horse and chickens are friendly too! It is easy to find and very well placed to visit numerous local attractions including Wells, Shepton Mallet, Wincanton and NT Stourhead. Perfect for a short break, but even better for a whole week!
