THE OLD DAIRY ANNEX, PART OF A BEAUTIFUL 17TH CENTURY FARM HOUSE

Bason Bridge Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Self contained annex sleeping up to 6

Churchland Farm, set in twelve acres on the Somerset Levels, offers a tranquil getaway for singles, couples, families, coarse fishers and those seeking cultural pleasures.

The farmhouse dates back to the early 17th century and sits alongside the River Brue. The Old Dairy forms a self contained annex of the main house and sleeps 4 - 5 (+ 2 on a sofa bed).

Guests have use of the hot tub, bbq, play area and lawned garden as well as being welcome to stroll along the river bank though closing gates is essential to ensure we do not loose the horses.

We own several of dogs, cats and horses not to mention the wild rabbits in evidence at dawn and dusk.

Whether you want to bring your bikes and cycle through the levels or your hiking boots for country strolls there is plenty of space, not to mention the beaches near by and theme park which is great for all ages.

For shopping you can't beat Bristol's Mall, Broadmead or Cabott Circus shopping areas, Taunton's country town shops or near by Clarkes Village Outlet.

For a speacial expereince why not consider booking into one of the local spas.

The annex, originally an old milking parlor, has its own entrance, a well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. Adjacent is the living/dining room equipped with a TV/DVD with free view and CD player. Upstairs there is a galleried bedroom with a sloping ceiling, a double bedroom and en-suit shower room.

Hair dryer, straighteners, dressing gowns for adults, bed linen, towels and tea towels are supplied. A futon bed can also be supplied on request to take a 3rd child.

There is ample parking and a beautiful river walk as well as a secure play area for children. A BBQ is available for use as is the hot tub.

Dogs and other pets are welcome and by arrangement we can even lodge your ponies or horses subject to veterinary certificates and passports.

Night and day coarse fishing is available off the banks of the River Brue within the boundaries of Churchland Farm during the fishing season. Rod licenses will need to be presented before commencing fishing.

Kevin & I met in Yeovil in 2000 & moved to Sedgemore from South Sommerset because we had the opportunity to bring our horses onto our own land.

Kevin is an ex Marine who has travelled the world and spent several years in Austrailer of which he has citizenship for and his two boys were born there.

I am from North London and since moving to Somerset for work in 2000 have never looked back, life could not be more lovely.

Kevin & Paula Protheroe purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Churchland Farm is just idylic and our joint dream of owning somewhere big enough to accommodate our dogs, cats and horses on our own land. It is often hard to remember there is a big wide world beyond our gates as we sit by the river taking in the beautiful country views and come rain or shine we know just how lucky we are to own our home in the beautiful County of Somerset

Peace and tranquility, if you don't leave the grounds you can forget there is a world out there running at 100 miles an hour and if you do leave then the attractions of the seaside, Bristol city and numerous country villages are so near to hand.

CHURCHLANDS FARM FOR A GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week at Churchlands farm, Paula and Kevin made us feel very welcome and were great hosts. It was the little touches they provided from the welcome wine and bits on arrival to the huge selection of dvd's that we could watch in the evening. We all loved the hot tub, very relaxing after a day out in the surrounding countryside or beach. Kevin let us ride the beautiful horses he owns and is not only a great horseman but a fantastic riding instructor who raised my daughters and my own confidence with the horses so that I was able to jump by the end of the week!
The location is very peaceful, yet close to beaches and areas such as the Cheddar Gorge. We'd love to visit again and have recommended you to our friends.

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
Churchland Farm Cottage is a dream location for families looking to get away from the rigours of urban life. The cottage is annexed onto the main house. It contains a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom. You will also find TV (freeview), selection of DVD’s, free wifi, horses, dogs, trampoline and a hot tub to die for. Paula and Kev are the perfect hosts, from the moment you arrive they make you feel totally welcome. Kev even took our eldest boy canoeing up the river located at the back of the farm.

If you want a guide to a holiday location, ask your children, all I can say is mine are pestering me already to return later in the year. You won’t go wrong with Churchland Farm Cottage.

OUR STAY MAY 28TH TO JUNE 4TH 2011

  • 5 of 5
what can i say, lovely place and lovely people, on our arrival kevin rue and max welcomed us, we were shown round and made to feel at home straight away,the annexe is clean and comfortable and has everything you need and more, the bread, butter milk and wine where an added bonus we weren't expecting and was greatly appericated. Kevin and Paula were fantastic host's, nothing was too much trouble, giving us great information on the area and places to visit and that's what's great about Churchlands Farm it's so central to everywhere Glastonbury, Weston super mare, Well's, Cheddar are all less than an hours drive away. The highlight to my daughters holiday was getting to ride Zara one of the horse's at Churchlands with Kevin's training she did so much in just a few days, and the hottub was lovely to relax in after a hard day's sightseeing. We all agree it is one of the best holidays we've had and we hope to visit again very soon and would definatly recommend it .

THE PERFECT SPOT FOR A HOMELY AND RELAXING BREAK.

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 wonderful nights at the farmhouse in June, the property was clean and very well equipped, including a complimentary welcome pack. Kevin and Paula were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Kevin gave us all a riding lesson and provided free use of his Kayaks on the river at the rear of property. The hot tub was fantastic and the perfect way to end a summer evening. Special mention has to go to Monty, Roo and Max the resident dogs. Monty followed us everywhere and the children wanted to bring him home. The location is also perfect for visiting places such as Cheddar, Glastonbury, Wells and not far from the beach at Brean or Burnham. All in all we had a very enjoyable and relaxing few days and the rental was very good value for money. Hopefully we will visit again.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing time at Churchlands once again. Kevin and Paula made us most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Very well equipped cottage with some thoughtful little extras. Over the years we have stayed in many properties throughout the UK and abroad and this is the only one we had rebooked before we had even left!! Cannot wait to visit again as this really is home from home. A super holiday let made even more special by the care and attention to detail from the owners. Excellent. Well worth a visit to this beautiful area of the world.
