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 two dogs, two cats and 3 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 (up to 70% off). And if it is culture and history you are looking for then there are museums in abundance, historical towns & cities & great beaches for fosil hunting. For a speacial expereince why not consider booking into one of the local spas. Somerset really has it all!
The annex, originally an old milking parlor, has its own entrance, a well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher toaster, kettle & coffe maker. Adjacent is the living/dining room equipped with a TV/DVD with freeview 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.
Checkin is Saturdays at 3pm & checkout is at 10am to allow sufficient time to turn round the annex for the next guests. If you are staying for two weeks we can arrange for cleaning and change of linen on request.

About Kevin & Paula Protheroe
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
Why Kevin & Paula Protheroe chose East Huntspill
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
What makes this Farmhouse unique
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.

Cosy, clean and perfectly located!
We had the most wonderful time exploring Weston Super Mare ,Clevedon ,Brean and Cheddar Gorge. The weather was typical for December - cold - and it was an absolute delight to return to the Old Dairy which was always lovely and warm.The kitchen and lounge have everything you could ask for and the bed was more comfortable that ours at home! Kevin was very welcoming and the bread and milk on arrival was much appreciated. Would go again as it would be nice to see the horses and land in better weather.
lovely people will look forward to seeing them again and would recommend them to anyone
Amazing stay at this beautiful family oriented property
We booked a 2 night stay to celebrate our little girls’ 4th birthday so we were a party of 6 (2 adults, 4 year old twins and 2 dogs). We had such a lovely time. Kevin is very welcoming and really went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The property is very clean and has everything you need. It’s set in beautiful Somerset countryside - idyllic! We were able to see the horses and I even had a 30 minute ride, which was fantastic as I hadn’t ridden for 25 years. Can’t wait to go back for another stay and would unreservedly recommend. Thanks for everything 😃😃
Nice quiet location.
A really cosy place to stay with the added bonus of a hot tub! The hosts were also very friendly people which makes all the difference!
Lovely short break
We had a lovely 2 night stay at The Old Dairy, lovely clean cottage, good location, especially liked the use of the hot tub and horse riding. We will be back in the future.
thank you look forward to seeing you all again soon
We looked at all the reviews before we booked and my son said it sounds too good to be true.
Well I have to say not only was it true but it was excellent.
Kevin, Paula and the dogs gave us a fantastic welcome. They had left milk, tea, coffee, sugar, bread and butter for us. And a much appreciated bottle of wine.
The annex was clean, tidy and relaxing, just what we needed after our drive. They have a booklet with all information included and are happy to include other things if they are seen to be missing.
Everything was great and when we were discussing the location of shops and supermarkets we asked about local taxis. Paula then showed what an absolute star she was, she offered to take us into Wells and then pick us up as taxis would be so expensive.
We were totally blown away by this incredibly generous offer of hers. Where else can you get, a really fantastic welcome, to be left to your own devices, a great location and wonderful hosts?
What can we say, it did sound too good to be true but it wasn't, it was better. We will definitely go again and for longer next time, if we can get booked in.
Lovely cottage had everything we needed bed comfortable and the brand new kitchen well stocked.
Kevin made us feel welcome . The milk provided meant we were able to have a welcome cup of tea after our journey which was an added bonus. Good base for exploring the local areal
