Corfe, Taunton, Somerset
Bed & Breakfast

A very old English vicarage with generous, thoughtful hosts, homemade treats and a huge amount of comfort


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


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.

The neighbourhood

Just over an hour’s drive from Bristol, Corfe – a small village outside Taunton – has country walks all around. For more of a leg-stretch it’s a 15-minute drive to the Blackdown Hills, 20 to the Quantocks. Your hosts can arrange activities from flights to tank driving, fishing to falconry. They also do special meals and there is more fine food nearby – try the Candlelight Inn in Bishopswood. It’s 20 minutes to the Queens Arms in Pitminster.

William Hosie

The Hosies gladly go above and beyond for guests, and children are looked after well too. Trina is half Swedish, a trained chef (pastry a speciality) and an art college graduate. Bill is a professional pilot – he flew upside-down across the English Channel for charity – and can arrange aerobatic packages, ballooning, gliding and falconry sessions. They have three dogs.
