Farmhouse | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Woodlands Farmhouse combines the heritage and charm of an historic old dairy farm with the style and chic of 21st Century living. It has seven bedrooms, (one of which is located on the ground floor and ideal for those who prefer not to use stairs) and sleeps 14 very comfortably, with a private hot tub.
The Sedum Spa located on the same site as the farmhouse is a shared facility which has; a 12x5m chlorine free indoor pool, sauna, relaxation room, Nordic hot tub, pool lounging area, 4 treatment rooms (a wide range of therapies are available), gym, separate male & female changing rooms. It is the perfect place to completely relax and unwind.
The house was completely renovated and refurbished over two years using the finest craftsmen to restore features such as the inglenook fireplaces, old bread oven, original flagstones and large elm floorboards to name but a few. Whilst preserving the old, we have also added the style and comforts of 21st Century living, with luxuries such as the hot tub, cinema room, wet room showers and bespoke designer kitchen.
Why not enjoy a tranquil countryside walk with your dog around the 100 acres of ours surrounding the house, before relaxing and unwinding at the spa or in the private massaging hot tub with a chilled glass of champagne. For the more active, the gym, games room and kids play area should keep even the most restless entertained. Either way, we have designed the house and spa to cater to everyone's needs, from young to old, modern chic to classic elegance, to provide you with a truly memorable experience.

The West Country region
Located in the beautiful open countryside, close to Glastonbury, the property enjoys magnificent views of the hills and Tor. Nearby Longleat safari park offers a unique day out, driving in and amongst the lions and rhinos. Whilst for the architecturally minded, the World Heritage Site of Bath and, Wells the smallest city in England with its beautiful Cathedral, are within a short driving distance. The area also boasts such attractions as Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole caves, The Fleet Air Arm Museum and Haynes Motor Museum.
Glastonbury is famous for it's ancient history. Joseph of Arimathea (Jesus' great uncle) visited Glastonbury following Jesus' death and legend has it that this was the resting place for the holy grail. A few centuries after this King Arthur was buried at the foot of Glastonbury Tor (Avalon) and legend has it he still roams around the Abbey ruins! Either way, Glastonbury is a hive for spirituality and an alternative way of life. One visit to the town will make this abundantly obvious. It does have a great deal of charm though and of course all the necessary amenities. The area is probably best known for Glastonbury Festival which is a couple of miles from the property.
The surrounding fields offer a host of walking routes if you are feeling active. If not, just relax and go to the spa or light the wood burner and put your feet up, soak in the private massaging hot tub.

"A property to recommend"
Our entire family of 14 stayed here and it was excellent. The house is beautiful and was immaculately prepared for us. There is plenty of space and the kitchen is sufficiently equipped. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. The house is situated in a wonderfully quiet environment. There is a brand new indoor swimming pool, with a sauna, exercise room (well equipped) and relaxation room. There is also a hot tub next to the house.
If there is anything to criticise it would be the games room. There is a darts board (very tired), three ageing darts, an unlevel pool table and a football table whose base has come loose so is unusable. But these are minor problems and in no way detracted from a thoroughly enjoyable week.
Thank you for your comments. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Woodlands Farmhouse. We were unaware that the pool table was sloping, (we tend not to play all that often...)but have now fixed it. Apologies for the darts and table football - the equipment does get a lot of hard usage and we obviously missed that the darts needed replacing. The table football has also been repaired. We hope to see you again sometime. Paul & the team.

"There was 13 family members present who all agreed the property & facilities were first class"
We all agreed that this was an ideal location to celebrate our Golden Wedding, accompanied by all of our family members and one small dog! The house was so large that we never felt that there was a lack of space.The house was very well,and tastefully ,fitted out with no shortage of kitchen utensils and every room was large and the bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent.The hot tubs,spa,sauna,swimming pool and gym were of a very high standard and much used by all members especially our 5 grandchildren.All in all an excellent property.
We always feel that bit more responsible when there is such an important occasion to be celebrated, so we're all delighted that you had such a good time staying with us. Paul & the team.

"Amazing house and beautiful spa"
We had a lovely stay at Woodlands Farmhouse recently, with a group of friends who go away together every year. The farmhouse itself is beautiful, especially the bedrooms which are really pretty and beautifully decorated - with lots of bathrooms; essential for a large group! The kitchen is very well equipped, and has a lovely traditional farmhouse feel.
The spa is brand new and very close to the farmhouse. The pool was a good size and warm, and it was a lovely place to hang out for the morning. There was also a gym, which looked good, but the sofas next to the pool were more appealing!
We will definitely be back next year.
I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you all again the future. Regards, Paul & the team.
