On the outskirts of Henstridge is Quiet Corner Farm.

It nestles at the end of a large, enclosed lawn and adjoins the owners' converted barn, close to the former farmhouse. Lovely suntrap garden (barbecue, table/chairs), shared with the owner. Home-produced eggs and prize-winning apple juice available.  The cottage has lots of character with beams, leaded windows and polished pine floors (rugs) throughout. Gravelled drive and yard to 2 shallow steps up to front door; hall, off which living (woodburner, TV/DVD, Edwardian sofa)/dining/kitchen (washer-drier, microwave) with high ceiling, overlooking the garden; bathroom (suite with corner bath with seat, shower over and hand-shower); two pretty, pink floral bedrooms (electric blankets, Velux windows) – a small single, and a double.

The Somerset region

West Somerset: A mellow landscape of lush water-meadows, golden-stone villages, luxuriant cottage gardens and apple orchards. Here is some of the richest farmland in England, wonderfully peaceful and unspoilt. To the south is Hamstone country where almost every village is picture-perfect with stone cottages, old pubs and splendid churches and every few miles magnificent houses and gardens (many National Trust) are open to the public. At Yeovilton is the excellent Fleet Air Arm Museum with Concorde on show. Atmospheric Ham Hill has an Iron Age fort on its top.

The Quantocks are the beautiful hills – high against the farming vales to either side – stretching over 40 square miles from Taunton, Somerset's capital, to the big sandcastle beaches by the Bristol Channel sea, separated from Exmoor by a plain of cornfield farmland. Wooded, heather-topped, they are home to red deer and inspired poets Wordsworth and Coleridge. Superb for walking and riding, you'll find tremendous views, deep romantic valleys and rose-clad cottages here. Along the western foot of the Quantocks chugs the scenic steam railway from Bishop's Lydeard to Minehead.

Few beautiful-country areas are so rich in interesting and splendid man-made things to see.

Templecombe

Henstridge: village (church, PO/shop, two good pubs, popular Indian restaurant) on the Somerset/Dorset border, overlooking beautiful Blackmore Vale. Stalbridge (good shops), 1 mile. Sherborne (medieval town), 6½ miles. Mainline railway station, 2 miles; regular bus/coach services. Golf, riding and fishing within 1 mile. Fine houses/gardens within easy reach, with twenty Nat. Trust properties within 20 miles, including Stourhead. Bicycle hire.
