Rock Farm is a stunning grade II listed farmhouse which has been completely restored and renovated from the ground up to the very highest standard with our first guests having arrived in March 2014. Dating back many centuries, this property combines all the original features one might expect such as inglenook fireplaces, original beams and of course the thatched roof with modern luxuries like under floor heating, en-suite bedrooms and an electric Aga.

This property is split into two parts - the main original house and the Granary (annexe) which forms the other side of the courtyard setting. The main house has 4 beautiful en-suite bedrooms and is where the main kitchen, dining and living areas can be found which will accommodate the whole group comfortably. The Granary has 3 bedrooms which represent the quirky side of the property; each with their own distinctive style they share a good sized bathroom and the smaller of the bedrooms has it's own balcony from which to you can gaze over a significant proportion of Somerset.

This property is situated in an outstanding location on the side of the highest point of the Quantock Hills; an area of outstanding natural beauty approximately a 15 min drive from the market town of Taunton. This means that the views from the house are simply stunning and you can see miles upon miles of Somerset's finest rolling hills and landscape. A particular delight when the West Somerset steam train is passing in the distance or when the mist settles beneath the house and all ahead of you is a sea of cloud...

Rock Farm is equipped with stables and a paddock so it is perfect for groups that would like to bring their horses to explore riding routes covering some of the most breath taking, beautiful countryside in the UK. These circular routes reaching across Exmoor and the Quantock Hills will offer horse owners the opportunity to enjoy a horse holiday of a lifetime!

"Weekend of Dreams"

Visited the house with a large group of friends to celebrate my thirtieth and I could not have asked for a more spectacular place to stay. I was blown away when we arrived. All the rooms were gorgeous and hugely comfortable and even with so many of us the house was big enough to never feel like we were on top of each other. But the outside space - they are hard to describe. The views from the hot tub were just incredible, watching the sunset one night was an experience close to finding mecca! VERY good use was made of the karaoke stage - this place has absolutely everything you could want for a weekend away. We were all so sad to leave and are already discussing when to come back.

Thank you so much for such a positive review of Rock Farm. It really is located in a beautiful spot, made that bit nicer by the lovely weather you had for your weekend celebrations. We are glad that you had a great break away and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Many thanks Ed and The Woodlands Retreats Team

"Excellent luxury house for hen weekend"

The house was absolutely stunning and well equipped and the views from the house were breathtaking. The rooms were all beautifully designed and the house felt very luxurious. The house is perfectly situated for activities (we did horseriding at the nearby stables) as well as having a large amount of outdoor space for barbecues and outdoor activities. I would definitely recommend this house to any large group of friends or equally for a family gathering.

Thank you for your great review. We're so glad you enjoyed the house and the local activities. It is the perfect spot for riding and spending time outdoors. Kind regards, Kerry and the Woodlands Retreats Team.

"Brilliant accomodatio"

Everything was amazing, little touches in the rooms were very much appreciated!! Would love to go back. Would recommend pre booking transportation as taxi drivers couldn't find it.

Thank you for your 5* review of Rock Farm. It was a pleasure to have you stay and we are glad that it met all your requirements. Rock Farm is tucked away a bit so pre-booking taxis is definitely a good idea but there are plenty of firms in Taunton that will come out to West Bagborough. We hope to see you back again in the future. Kindest regards Ed and The Woodlands Retreats Team

"Fabulous venue for a family weekend away"

Can not fault this fabulous venue, everything has been thought of to ensure that you have a great time. It is really well-equipped & was spotlessly clean. We used all the facilities - hot tub, games room, log burners etc & everything was in good working order. Plenty of room for us all & we enjoyed the beautiful grounds - loved waking up to the sound of nature every morning!

Thank you very much for your glowing review and we are really pleased that Rock Farm was everything that you wanted it to be. The property is situated in such a great location you really do feel part of the Somerset countryside. We hope to see you again in the future. Many thanks Ed and the Woodlands Retreats Team.

"An idyllic countryside retreat to get away from the hustle and bustle"

For the last 6 years we have booked a weekend away with friends in the same place and this year we fancied a change. We certainly weren't disappointed! Rock Farm is in a beautiful remote setting with the most incredible views across the countryside, refurbished to a very high standard and plenty of room for the 14 people that it accommodates. With no neighbours anywhere near, there were also no worries about how much noise you made. All of this was topped off with the hot tub and games room which were both a great addition. Will definitely be booking to go back again next year!

Thank you for your kind words, we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Rock Farm. It is indeed a very special place and we look forward to seeing you again sometime. Paul & team.

"Amazing Hen Party Weekend... couldn't have been more perfect!"

We stayed at Rock Farm for the weekend in a group of 14 for my hen do. It was absolutely wonderful! Stunning location, beautiful interiors and very homely yet spacious with lots of different areas to spend our time. Loved the games room and hot tub and the huge dining room and outdoor table was perfect for us and all our activities. Not a detail was left out and we had everything we could possibly want in one place, which was just perfect. The activities available to book alongside our stay were all excellent with some lovely people - clay pigeon shooting just a short walk across the fields, wine tasting and a chef cooked us dinner one evening - all delivered to a high standard and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thoroughly recommend Rock Farm - peaceful little bit of heaven! Thank you for a wonderful time

"Brilliant Hen Do Destination!"

We stayed at Rock Farm from a Friday afternoon till Sunday lunch time. It is a beautiful picturesque part of Somerset off the beaten track. The house itself is perfect, mainly large en suite bedrooms, large comfortable communal areas indoors and out and decorated to a very high standard, and very well equipped. There are great activities locally, Clay pigeon shooting and wine tasting and some lovely country pubs. We had an excellent weekend and would highly recommend a stay there!
