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.
