About Property Manager
David and Penny Denbee, the owners of Pear Tree Farm, extend the warmest of welcomes to beautiful Somerset. Pear Tree Farm has been in David’s family for three generations and it was a dairy farm until 2005 when David switched to beef and sheep production. Staying here during the lambing and calving season gives you opportunity to see the new born animals first hand. The farm is criss-crossed by footpaths and offers great views across the valley floor to The Mendip Hills, Axbridge, Cheddar and Wells and even to Brean Down and the Bristol Channel beyond. The ancient settlement of Wedmore is 1.5 miles away and is known to historians as the place where Alfred the Great and the Viking king, Guthrum, agreed a peace treaty in 878 AD, and it is where Guthrum converted to Christianity. It’s also known to the modern visitor as a charming, bustling place alive with every amenity, whose busy shopping streets belie its size as a small village. You will find bijou designer clothing shops alongside shops selling the best local foodstuffs: a butchers/farm shop, fishmonger, delicatessen and a newsagent/off-licence. There are also three traditional Somerset pubs to eat and drink in.
Situated on the Isle of Wedmore, where King Arthur famously signed The Treaty of Wedmore in 878AD, Stoughton Cross is only 3 miles from The Mendip Hills and is surrounded by the Somerset Levels. The area is a mecca for golfers, walkers, cyclists, and nature lovers, and for those who prefer exploring the villages, towns and cities in the area. In Wedmore, you will find bijou designer clothing shops., a butchers/farm shop, fishmonger, a delicatessen, a newsagent/off-licence and 3 pubs.
