The
Experience

Sarah has a peaceful 17th-century stone house, with a pretty walled cottage garden and views to Alfred’s Tower and Longleat. Beams, flagstones and inglenook fireplaces have been sensitively restored; there’s a double in the eaves and a twin with its own sitting room where you can read and relax.Breakfast on homemade and farmers’ market produce before exploring Stourhead’s landscaped gardens, Wells’ twice-weekly markets, Glastonbury’s eclectic shops. Sarah, engaging, well-travelled and a great cook, looks after you warmly.Bring horses and dogs to explore the limestone hills and lakes of the Mendips, piles of books or paints to capture the serene light and delicate blooms of the gardens with a pot of tea and a plate of biscuits.

Reviews

We had an wonderful stay at Broadgrove House. My ten year old son particularly loved Sarah's friendly dog and the amazing breakfast!

Jane, London

My wife and I and my parents in law visiting from Denmark stayed 5 nights at Broadgrove in April 2018. Broadgrove is an amazing 400 year old house with a lot of atmosphere and history. Sarah Voller took very good care of us - we enjoyed home-cooked breakfast with berries and marmelades from the garden and local tasty honey. Sarah gave us very good recommendations on which villages and locations to visit when you want to avoid too much hazzle and tourism. Also she knew exactly the best places to have dinner. That gave us some unique days and memories from the Somerset area.

A very enjoyable few days in a lovely, tranquil house. Sarah is a welcoming hostess and went out of her way to make sure we were well looked after, including making reservations and, after we were snowed in, cooking an excellent dinner. Breakfasts were very good too. The sitting room and dining rooms are both full of character and the open fire added to the cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Martin, Cranbrook

Lovely twin bed and sitting room annex, delicious locally sourced breakfast, care and attention to detail and a lovely hostess. A lovely delightful stay.

Elizabeth, Moreton-in-marsh

Visited Broadgrove House for a two-night stay. Sarah Voller gave us a very warm welcome and served us tea and biscuits. The bedroom was comfortable and we had the extra pleasure of a private sitting-room warmed by an efficient wood burning stove. She was able to offer advice on places to eat and her suggestions proved most successful. Her breakfasts were delicious and special mentioned should be made off the lovely ham served with excellent scrambled eggs. Sarah is a very natural and down to earth hostess which was much appreciated. Our stay proved most relaxing and extremely enjoyable.

James, Gateshead

What an idyllic place. We'd just spent the weekend on the Gower in very poor weather, so arriving at Broadgrove House was wonderful. This beautiful stone house is half a mile down a track in the middle of farm land. We had a cosy bedroom and a sitting room at one end of the house. As we had our two dogs with us, it was heaven. We could walk straight out of the door and the dogs were in a lovely environment. Sarah Voller's dog Nilla showed them the land. We had a delicious cooked breakfast in the house's dining room. Fresh fruit from her garden and home made jams made it extra special.

Lyn, Guildford

Absolute tranquility in this comfortable idyllic home. Ease and peace provided by charming hostess, Sarah. Delicious breakfast too. Many thanks Sarah

Aideen, London

Beautiful remote location yet actually not far from pretty Somerset villages and towns, with good eating pubs. Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay, with large area of accommodation to yourselves.

Caroline, Petworth

We used Broadgrove House as a base for our daughter’s wedding, staying there two nights. Sarah was a perfect hostess providing wonderful breakfasts. Broadgrove House was a perfect setting for our daughter and bridesmaids to get ready and there was even the offer of a glass of champagne from Sarah! Sarah’s hospitality was perfect, and Broadgrove House will have many happy memories for all of us. Thank you Sarah for a wonderful time.

Rupert

Sarah Voller is an exceptional & very charming hostess with a beautiful period home. We loved our two day visit and will definitely visit again, Very highly recommended!

Patrick

We stayed in the large room under the roof beams, with private bathroom and romantic rural view, a calling owl and Sarah’s elegant horse grazing below. The track to the house (with a bevy of quail running ahead) is itself an adventure, through trees, beside an old quarry. With no lights, you see the whole night sky, and the stars beyond the stars. It’s two miles to The George (beside 14th century Nunney Castle) for supper. Broadgrove is a historic listed house and Sarah is a knowledgeable and charming hostess. Her delicious breakfast is proper, traditional British luxury without fussiness.

Location

The neighbourhood

Just off the A361, the little smallholding is squirrelled away between lush pastures and arable farmland. The nearest town is Frome (five miles) which has monthly markets and independent bookshops, delicatessens and boutiques. Visit an exhibition or seminar at Hauser & Wirth: the smart gallery has an outpost just outside Bruton (eight miles) or stroll around the Palladian mansion and gardens of Stourhead (ten miles).

Local points of interest from Sarah Voller

  • Frome, an old woollen town; now with fascinating artisan shops, Sunday street markets and weekly farmers markets plus the two week Frome Festival every July
  • Stourhead (NT) a lovely Palladium house , world famous landscape gardens with stunning views
  • Wells, an attractive little city with its beautiful Cathedral, Bishops Palace and magnificent gardens to explore
  • Hauser & Worth just outside Bruton, a world class gallery and arts centre with a busy events program. Very special!
  • Babington House and Orchardleigh are two nearby wedding venues, only 10-15 minutes away
  • Broadgrove is central for visits to Bath, Stonehenge, Glastonbury Tor and Cheddar Caves. So much choice as they are all amazing and so different and do not forget Longleat and the wonderful Safari Park

Introducing

Sarah Voller

Delightful Sarah travelled and lived all over the world throughout her career but now calls this peaceful corner of Somerset home. She’ll welcome you with comfy sofas, good old-fashioned hospitality and soft fruits from her garden – she’s a stickler for sourcing local food and opts for organic wherever possible. There’s a friendly dog to meet and horses on site – Sarah’s had horses her whole life and use to compete in different disciplines; she welcomes four-legged friends with equal enthusiasm.
