Park Farm is the perfect place for families and hens to down tools and relax. This is where the world stands still awhile in the peace and quiet of the West Country. Inside, there are antiques, paintings, beams, inglenook fireplaces and original flagstone floors at every turn. Warm your toes around the living-room log burner or 4 oven Aga in the farmhouse kitchen.
Over three hundred years old and retaining many original features, it has been renovated to a high standard. With oodles of charm you will find countless interesting features including the carved name & date of a previous owner in a flagstone in the dining room inglenook dated the 1800s. The upstairs Master Ensuite bathroom with its vaulted ceiling, was the original loft of a Cider barn attached to the farmhouse and there are a wealth of wonderful beams around the house. There is ample space to spread out in Park Farm with three sitting rooms - which works well when different generations holiday or weekend together! In the Library/music room, you will find a baby grand piano for your enjoyment and an eclectic range of literature (many books with hard covers) to keep you entertained. The dining room has a wooden floor and large inglenook fireplace with inset log burner for cosy winter dinners. The large dining tables seats up to 15 and beautiful Argentian prints grace the walls setting a very elegant scene. A further sitting room with Inglenook and another log burner offers comfortable sofas and original flagstone floors with exotic Afghan rugs and the final sitting room with 42" Flat screen TV doubles up as a playroom where children can play next door to the adults. There are a wide range of toys & games, DVDs, CDs and videos as well as table football for your enjoyment. The main and second bedroom have super king size beds (one zip n link), and our mattresses are so good that one guest went home and ordered the very same mattress straight away! The further bedroom has zip n link as twin or Kingsize beds, and the further ensuite has a carved wooden King bed. The attic offers Kingsize oak and twin beds and is an ideal family bedroom. You'll love the farmhouse kitchen which evokes gasps on entry as it looks like something out of Homes and Gardens. There is a four oven electric Aga, and a separate double electric oven and electric hob. The kitchen is well equipped and includes such items as food processor, hand blender, scales, whisks, great range of pots and pans, Le Creuset casserole dishe, white lasagne and pie dishes, filter coffee machine, slow cooker, cafetieres, teapots, cups and saucers as well as mugs and plenty of utensils and cutlery. Off the kitchen is a Utility room with washing machine, clothes airer and a downstairs WC and wash-handbasin. You can leave boots and coats in this room. The gardens around the house offer attractively walled borders of flowers and shrubs all year round and there are panoramic views from the front windows and lawns extend miles across the Somerset Levels. From the back of the house is a private outside dining and sitting area with garden furniture. Your views from here are of the woods behind the farmhouse where we often spy Peregrine falcons and birds of prey hunting. Park Farm is an idyllic and peaceful location, yet within minutes of the bustling County towns of Somerton & Langport. Somerton is allegedly the original Capital of the County of Wessex. Both towns offer restaurants, pubs, shops and some beautiful architecture. Park Farm has a private hard tennis court and hot tub for your use, croquet lawn with all the kit, swings, go karts and ride on tractors for the under 5s. We welcome bridal parties marrying locally, family reunions or significant birthday weekends, hen parties and mature groups. There is plenty to do at Park Farm including a circular track for a really good woodland walk and if you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can also walk across another field from the woods and amble down a lane or two to the Half Way Public House for a really delicious glass of Cider! Within 25 minutes of the Cathedral City of Wells, and only 15 minutes from the town of Glastonbury with Langport closeby, Park Farm is well placed for many interesting day trips. We are able to arrange a Spa company to come in and provide Indian Head Massage, Manicures and Pedicures and a wide range of beauty treatments in the comfort of the nearby Barn or else you could enjoy a morning of activities at a nearby studio where you can make cards, jewellery etc (popular with our Hens). We have an In-House Chef who can cook you a superb dinner party from £28 per head or drop off a wide range of "ready to cook" dishes to add to your restful experience. Once you have booked, we can put you in touch with our local activity provider whose website will give you masses of exciting opportuntiies!
