|Brimming with country charm, comfortable furnishings and lashings of style, the warmest of welcomes awaits at Park Farm. The farmhouse nestles in its hillside location beneath ancient woodlands and offers magnificent views for miles. Complete with 2 spacious sitting rooms, further TV/snugroom, dining room comfortably seating up to 14 and a dream farmhouse kitchen with electric Aga, hard tennis court, croquet lawn and 20 acres of woods to explore over your weekend, Park Farm is the perfect example of a quintessential English country retreat. It combines traditional character with contemporary mod cons providing an elegant haven to spend a restful weekend.
These old stone walls enclose five bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a WC on the ground floor. The opulent master king-size bedroom has a vaulted ensuite bathroom/dressing room WC, sink, walk in shower and roll top bath. There is a further king-size bedroom with ensuite bathroom and WC, and two further double bedrooms plus a heavily beamed attic bedroom with king-size bed and two singles. The family bathroom incorporates a shower, WC and sink on the first floor.
After a day of exploring, exhausted grandparents or friends can happily escape to a nearby Gardener's Cottage (sleeping 2 with ensuite shower) and which is available (at extra cost) very close to the house and which compliments this family home.
This rural retreat is perfectly positioned for country pursuits and visits to stately English homes and gardens. Start the day with a brisk game of tennis, then wellies and jackets donned, embark on a long countryside stomp with the children and canine companions in tow. Ruddy faced and with lungs full with fresh air, stop off at The Half Way House at Pitney (half an hours brisk walk through the woods) and relax with a hearty ploughman's lunch and glass of Somerset cider by the fire.
Take advantage of the Aga in the large farmhouse kitchen and get creative with a family bake-off! A platter brimming with home made muffins, jam tarts and icing sugared wedges of Victoria sponge will be the perfect reward after a gentle game of boules or croquet on the lawn under the Indian/Autumn summer sun. Spend an afternoon milling around Somerton, dubbed the former Capital of ancient Wessex and come home to log burners (unlimited free supply for your weekend) and toasted crumpets in front of the fire! However families choose to relax, the clean country air at Park Farm is sure to cleanse and rejuvenate weary souls.
There is ample parking for up to 6 cars on the gravelled drive. Park Farm has everything one could wish for in a home away from home including a four oven electric Aga, Neff dishwasher, Neff American fridge-freezer, further freezer & washing machine to complete the country dream! Whilst the hound-loving owners want dogs to enjoy their break as much as you, they kindly request dogs sleep in the boot room overnight.
