Set just back from the main road and with the church next door this ivy-covered vicarage is the ultimate lure for grown-up sybarites – but children are equally welcome. You’ll be greeted by a roaring wood-burner then home baking before being shown to your room full of treats – it’s so much more than a stopover place.You breakfast in what is a sunny tea room and popular Sunday brunch spot in summer: Trina’s homemade pastries and granola, local bacon and sausages, locally-roasted coffee and anything else you desire. Afterwards, if you’ve time, Bill can arrange a smorgasbord of sporting things to do. Watch a falconry display in the field behind the church, set off on a gentle walk through countryside, drive to the Blackdown Hills for something hillier or stroll for a pint at the Queens Arms in Pitminster. Trina or Bill will even give you a lift if they’re free.
