Westham Farmhouse has stood facing out across the Somerset Levels for many centuries, almost blending into the landscape. Although you can be confident of finding the usual creature comforts, you will also find an array of original historic features that tell a story of hundreds of years of farming activity. At the centre of the house is a large and comfortable farmhouse kitchen with solid fuel Rayburn - good for large family gatherings or reunions. The house and garden is ideal for families - we welcome children and pets. Horses could also be yarded by arrangement. The house is set in more than 50 acres of its own fields and orchards, adjoining a larger dairy farm (where homemade cider can be tried) - the opportunities for cycling, walking, birding or exploring the local area are boundless. Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury (8 miles), Wells (10 miles) and the coast (Burnham on Sea - 8 miles) are all within a 20-30 minute drive, while Bath and Bristol are within 45 minutes distance.

The large lawn is perfect for children, or for quiet contemplation. In front of you are views across our own fields (part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest), on the right hand side is a range of very old pig sties, and on the left you can see the stone barns of the old farmyard. There is a large patio for barbecues, and a kitchen garden. A footpath adjoins the property and takes you up to the top of the farm for spectacular views of the Mendips, Quantocks, Poldens and Glastonbury Tor before dropping down through the maize fields to Hozzard Brook and then on to the local pub, the Sexey's Arms in Blackford. Alternatively, you are welcome to drop in at the main farm and try some totally authentic farmhouse cider brewed on the farm using our own apples with original cider mill and press made down the road at Mark in the 1860s!

Please note that at the current time we do not provide bed linen or towels.
