Wonderful unique cottages

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend break at the Box Farm Cottages. We were a big group so we booked all 3 cottages and they were all excellent and well provisioned. The main cottage was wonderful. Very comfortable and cosy, yet huge too. We also loved the quirky elements that all added to the charm. We very much enjoyed being able to relax and spend time at the properties as well as enjoy the amazing scenery and countryside located right outside the door. Eve was a great host with excellent communications on check in, check out and directions etc, which was much appreciated. We'd love to come back again.

Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I have just stayed at box farm with 9 friends for my 30th Birthday and it was such an awesome weekend! Eve and Vince were incredibly welcoming and accommodating all the way through from booking to the time we left! The house is huge and has a lovely big but cosy dining room where we all ate together and then we all piled into the smaller lounge to sit by the fire, drink wine and play games. On the Saturday night we cooked a HUGE mexican meal with cocktails etc and there was more than enough cooking utensils, pots, pans etc for all of us to cook! The kitchen is great - I wish it was mine! All of the rooms are spacious with very comfy beds… We were in a brilliant location to watch the Starling Murmuration on the Friday (about 15 mins drive) and on the Saturday when it was unfortunately raining, we all piled in cars and drove to Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Town (which were both very close) and stopped at Wilkins Cider Farm on the way back to stock up on Cider for the evening and to take home… It was a really great weekend and everyone loved the house. I would love to go back again!

Excellent facilities, wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5
Right from when we arrived, having being personally greeted by Eve the owner, to the very end of the long weekend, it was amazing.
The cottage itself comfortably housed 15 of us for an early Christmas weekend for friends to get together, with huge but cosy feeling downstairs rooms, and wonderful bedrooms.
The kitchen was superbly fitted out with everything we needed.
Eve even suggested clay pigeon shooting to be organised which was a brilliant idea and was thoroughly enjoyed.
We could not wish for any more from this cottage and its surroundings and would not hesitate to recommend it to even the biggest of groups as the cottage and surrounding smaller cottages could more than cope, even with our rowdy group!
Thanks again, and cant wait to return for our planned summer BBQ!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5
Box Farm was a fantastic place to stay for a 7 night family get together. We were a party of 12 (7 adults, 3 children & 2 teenagers). Everyone loved the house. It was clean & tidy and had everything we needed, very generous sized bedrooms & the beds were large & comfy. The kitchen was well equipped, as we cooked big family meals most evenings & all sat around the large dining table. The gardens are fantastic and the kids absolutely loved the trampolines, slides & goalpost. There were plenty indoor games, books & dvd's for them too. We enjoyed the collection of interesting items around the house and the piano went down very well with the three pianists in our family. The teenagers loved the secret room as it was a great place for them to hide away!
We were so lucky with the weather and managed to make use of the built in barbecue and fantastic outdoor seating area.
The location of the house is very peaceful with stunning views. The adults enjoyed a walk to nearby Wilkins Cider Farm & I can recommend the delicious food at The New Inn, Wedmore.
Thank you to the owner, Eve, for being so helpful & accommodating. I would definitely recommend this house.

Wedding party at Box Farm

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay the week leading up to our wedding (just down the road from Wedmore). I stayed in Veritys cottage with my partner and baby, which is so pleasant and much bigger than it appears in the photos. All modern bathroom and kitchen facilities and generally a very cosy stay.
Our family stayed in the farm house just opposite our cottage so really convenient for our occasion. The farm house is huge with ample space and many quirky traditional features.
The views are amazing and the accommodation was well equipped with everything you need. Both properties were immaculately clean and the owners were really friendly and on hand for any questions we had - incredibly helpful and accommodating thank you very much for making our occasion extra special.
We would absolutely recommend staying at box farm and hope to visit again

Wonderful Farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Box Farmhouse and it certainly lived up to our expectations, we didn't want to leave!! It was big enough for our family of 6 adults and 3 children plus our old golden retriever and we all instantly felt at home, albeit after getting used to some of the quirky objects around the house, great fun. The enclosed garden was perfect for the little ones and the dog and the children loved looking over the wall to see the baby lambs grazing; the location was so peaceful and the views amazing. We all enjoyed the activity barn and loved riding around on the bikes and tandem. There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas, visiting beautiful Wells and its Cathedral, Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and the children loved the donkey rides on Burnham on sea beach. We also found a fab pub/restaurant called The New Inn at Cross which served delicious food, had a children's play area and welcomed dogs.
All in all a beautiful farmhouse and grounds, and we would certainly recommend it to our friends and family and want to thank Eve and Vince for being so helpful and welcoming.

A natural haven for wildlife and an area of incredible, natural beauty, this part of Somerset has a natural charm all of its own. Cheddar Gorge and caves, along with the caves at Wookey Hole, are spectacular and not to be missed, only 10 min away. With a working flour mill just 'down the road' and the famous Wilkins Cider Farm open for visitors to sit and chat with the locals, you will find the welcome very warm. The climate in Somerset in temperate. Historic Wells with its' Cathedral and Abbey, along with Glastonbury, its festival and Tor are only a short drive away. Wedmore is famous for its links with Alfred the Great. He had his holiday home there and it is in the beautiful village church that in 878 Alfred and the Danish leader Guthrum signed the 'Peace of Wedmore' With its' designer shops, cafes and restaurants, it is a very attractive village. There is always something going on, whether it be the real ale festival in September or the annual Opera performance.
