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.
