About The Old Rectory, North Barrow, Near Bruton, Somerset
I’m a wildlife filmmaker living in beautiful Somerset with my wife Laura and two happy children. I once made a wildlife film for Disney about flamingos that was shown in cinemas around the world. I love to travel, although haven't felt such itchy feet since moving to this wild part of England. I love to walk on the Somerset Levels and photograph the starling murmurations. I am a keen surfer and have been known to get up before dawn and drive to the coasts of Devon and Cornwall for a surf and then return in time for lunch at home. Being so close to the South West coasts is another great thing about living here! I once came across an epitaph on a Cumbrian gravestone. It read: "The wonders of the world The beauty and the power The shapes of things Their colours, lights and shades. These I saw. Look ye whilst life lasts." This felt like good advice and has been something of a maxim for me on my own life journey!

Wonderful stay in beautiful Somerset
We stayed at Leander's and Laura's house for almost a week in April. We really enjoyed our time. The guest wing of the house is newly rebuilt and furnished to a very high standard. It is very spacious; very comfortable for a family of 5. The grounds around the house are beautifully landscaped, lots of space for children to run around. Leander and Laura are extremely helpful; they helped us with local restaurants, tips, early check-in. Very highly recommended, and we will visit again.
Stunning property in the country side, both modern and clean.
My husband and I stayed in the guest wing of this amazing property for two nights and found it perfect for us. It is a little of the beaten track and a great place for peace and quiet. The bedrooms are a fabulous size and beautifully decorated, both with large and very modern en-suite bathrooms. The large living room was super comfortable and a great place to relax. The kitchen is lovely and bright. Leander was a great host and made us feel most welcome and very easy to contact if we had needed to. He gave us a great recommendation for dinner at The Queens Arms at Corton Denham which was fabulous.
All in all a great place to stay and would highly recommend and we are looking forward to a return visit.
Thank you Leander for making us feel very welcome and being a great host.
Thanks so much for your kind words, Julia and Steve. We felt honoured that you chose to celebrate your wedding anniversary at our property and are so pleased you enjoyed your time here so much. Please do come back and see us one day soon! Best wishes, Leander
Beautiful place!Immaculate, spacious and very welcoming.

Thanks Suzanne. It was great to meet you both and I’m so pleased you enjoyed your Somerset stay. Enjoy the rest of your grand tour! Best wishes, Leander
