Excellent mini-apartment in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

I needed a quiet pied-a-terre while I attended a motorcycle show at Bath & West showground - this exceeded my expectations. Good communication on booking, easy directions, and a cosy comfortable interior - warm even on a very cold winter weekend. All the necessary equipment and a well fitted shower and toilet. Oh, and a very comfortable bed, everything well laid out. Hosts very helpful and accommodating

Mick and Maddy are excellent hosts. There was some beautiful flowers and a complimentary bottle of locally sourced organic wine from the local vineyard on our arrival. The apartment is located in a beautiful area and close to many places of interest. The property description, maintenance and cleanliness are faultless. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful location, Welcoming Hosts, lovely break.

  • 5 of 5

The Property was very clean and had everything needed, such a beautiful location, we couldn't fault anything. The hosts, Mick and Maddie were very friendly and gave us privacy. There was a bottle of local cider and juices awaiting when we arrived which was very much appreciated after a long car journey. The bed was very comfortable, best few nights sleep we've had in a long time.

About Mick Battye

Your hosts, Mick and Maddy, bought Boxbush Farmhouse in 1995 as a family home. All the children have now left home so we now share it with our cat Smokey, dog George, two horses and some chickens which keep us busy. We enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and never tire of the scenary.

Mick Battye purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Mick Battye chose East Pennard

We love a challenge and Boxbush Farm was just that. A Grade II listed building, which had not been lived in for 8 years, had no water or electricity and was in a poor state of repair. We did all the renovation ourselves (apart from the thatching) We have solar PV panels on the stable roof which produce electricity for us. One of the reasons for buying it was the view we get over the Somerset Levels, and we enjoyed living in such a peaceful location.

What makes this apartment unique

The network of footpaths and tracks make excellent walking of all standards including The Monarchs Way, the escape route of Charles II.



Nearest railway station is Castle Cary (6 miles) use of car recommended.


Glastonbury, Wells, Castle Cary and Shepton Mallet all within a 20 minute drive and Bath 40 minutes.
