The farmhouse is in its own peaceful valley. Step inside to find an eclectic collection of vintage finds; a snooker room; a guest sitting room with sofas by the wood-burner and board games; bedrooms with big comfy beds, colourful linen and flowers. You eat in the cosy red dining hall at a long candlelit table: perfect poached eggs from the hens, homemade granola, fresh fruit for breakfast, perhaps homemade pate and local lamb for dinner. Kerstin grows lavender in the fields and you can buy her deliciously scented soaps and creams too. Space for bikes, walks into the Quantocks from the door, and the coast is just 30 minutes away.
