Description from owner

Description

The house consists of an imposing Victorian front addition to a 17th century farmhouse. The self catering apartment consists of the south facing Victorian front and the more rustic Cider Barn. The Victorian apartment retains most of the original features such as, high moulded ceilings, marble fireplaces and wooden floors. The Period furniture matches the Victorian features although a modern kitchen and facilities have been added. The Cider Barn incorporates part of the 17th century farmhouse and the original cider barn with exposed beams and slate floors.

Outside is a new Scandinavian style Hot Tub and patio area, while the 4 acres of gardens have something for everyone, from the plantsman to children following the secret paths through the wood or dipping in the wildlife pond, there is also plenty of room for croquette and other ball games.

Whilst in a rural setting Model Farm is ideally situated to explore all of Somerset, only 8 minutes from the centre of Bridgwater,

Whilst in a rural setting Model Farm is ideally situated to explore all of Somerset, only 8 minutes from the centre of Bridgwater, close to the coast, Quantock Hills, and the towns of Taunton, Glastonbury and Wells. There are many footpaths in the area that can be accessed from the farm, the Parrett Way passes nearby and the village of Cannington with its Church, walled garden, shops and pubs is a pleasant walk

There are many gardens open to the public, Hestercombe, Cothay and Barrington to name a few.

Visit the caves at Cheddar Gorge or Wookey Hole. The bird life on the levels is renowned, as are the potters and basket weavers. A visit to Somerset would not be complete without tasting the local wines and ciders

Location description from owner

The England region

Somerset is world renowned for its diverse natural beauty, from the remarkable Karst limestone landscapes and caves of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole, to inspiring areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as the Quantock and Mendip hills, and the Exmoor National Park.

Complementing nature, Somerset has a wealth of attractions, set amongst its many picturesque towns and villages; Glastonbury Tor, Wells Cathedral, The Bridgwater and Taunton Canal and cider mills galore.

There are many opportunities for walks for all abilities on the many designated footpaths, to name just a few The Coleridge Way, town heritage trails or The River Parrett trail which runs very close to the farm or perhaps the 30 minute walk across fields to Cannington with its 4 pubs, walled gardens and golf course.

For steam train enthusiasts there are regular trips from Bishops Lydeard to the seaside town of Minehead or stop off at any of the 10 different stations all with their own charm.

You can enjoy your stay in comfort and style in the rural idyll of Model Farm.

Wembdon

Bridgwater will furnish your shopping and eating out requirements and has the Blake and Brick and Tile museums. It also hosts the world famous Bridgwater carnival around Guy Fawkes Night.

Bridgwater is only a few minutes drive away or you may like to travel a little further to the county town of Taunton, a very interesting and historic town. Weston Super-Mare has all the usual seaside attractions with its newly rebuilt pier, aquarium and an annual sand sculpture festival.

“Great experience”

Reviewed 25 Dec 2013

This was a great experience for our large group. The house was fabulous and accommodated us all easily and was full of character. Well located for exploring the area. The rooms were huge in the main house and all had ensuite bathrooms as a bonus. The open log fire was a great hit with the kids for toasting marshmallows! Although the weather was poor, the house was warm, although the downstairs kitchen in the Old Byre was draughty and this could be helped with a curtain over the back door. Otherwise we had a great time in the three days we were there.

Owner's reply: Hi Vicky, Thanks for you review of Model Farm, it is much appreciated and thanks for the reminder about the Cider Barn door, I did get some sealant for it last summer but never got around to applying it! I will do that soon. I hope your trip to Bournemouth went well and your flight back home to Australia. I expect you are enjoying a lot better weather than we are now, although at least we haven't flooded. All the best, Dave

“Highly recommended”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2013

We stayed at Model Farm Country House for a short 3 night break in August. We had a wonderful time. The house is a lovely, comfortable place to stay, David was always very helpful. Kitchens are both fully equipt with lovely kitchenware, Would like to return one day.

“Excellent accomodation”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2012

I had an absolutly fantastic weekend at Model Farm. We stayed in October 2012 for my 40th birthday celebrations. We aso booked out the Cider Barn so had the whole of the accomodation. We had 9 adults and four children in our group and the property could have accomodated more. It was extremely spacious with lots of room for us all to fit comfortably, and also lots of hide andf seek places for kids, kept them busy for hours. Also the garden is very large and again great for the kids to play in. Tesco also delivered a big shop so dont bother loading your car up with food. Dave was always on hand with directions to pubs!!! and anything you may need. I loved the whole weekend. I would definately love to come and stay again. I would also recommend this accomodation.
