Burrington Farm

Burrington, Somerset
Bed & Breakfast

A bucolic setting for a cosy Somerset longhouse and fine garden. Chat with kind hosts over Aga breakfasts; walk the Mendips; pop to Bristol


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


High in the Mendips, Ros and Barry’s 15th-century longhouse is blissfully rural, yet Bristol, Bath and Wells are close. Their wonderful house glows: rugs and flagstones, books, burnished beams, paintings and fine old furniture. Guests have a cosy sitting room and bedrooms are charming; you’ll need to be nimble to negotiate ancient steps and stairs. For those who prefer a bit more privacy there’s a lovely family room in a separate green oak barn – stunningly converted and with views over the enchanting garden. Wake for a locally sourced breakfast round a big table. A friendly, relaxed and special place.

What a place! We just wanted somewhere to stay for one night, so, as usual, looked up Alastair Sawday's site. As usual, we weren't disappointed. Absolutely gorgeous Garden Room with a sofa, little kitchen, beautiful bathroom. Ros and Barry were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was delicious. They recommended the Plume of Feathers for dinner. The meal was wonderful as were the staff. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Burrington Farm again.

This is a wonderful place to stay! A beautiful house, full of character, in a beautiful part of the country. Ros was not around when we stayed, but Barry was a fantastic host; he was very friendly and went out of his way to make our stay a good one. He gave us great advice about places to go to eat in the evenings and provided us with lots of ideas about things to do during the day. We will certainly be planning a repeat visit and would whole-heartedly recommend Burrington Farm.

We loved everything about it.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Barry & Ros Smith

  • Burrington is in a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' yet is only 20 minutes from Bristol (airport pick-up available) & Wells and 30 minutes from Bath.
  • You can walk to the top of the Mendips from the farm and see 5 counties, then continue on to Cheddar and back, a round walk of 10 miles.
  • Apart from terrific walking, there's fishing, caving, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding and even ballooning on the doorstep.
  • Tyntesfield, Clevedon Court, Dyrham Park, Montacute House, Longleat, the Clifton Suspesion Bridge and the SS Great Britain are all under an hour away, Stonehenge just over.
  • For culture vultures there's the Arnolfini Gallery, the Royal West of England Academy, the Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Royal, Bath, the Colston Hall and of course Glastonbury.
  • There's a picturesque pub 10 minutes walk away, or 10 minutes by car will give you a huge option of pubs and restaurants.
