Spent 2 nights in the barn had a lovely comfortable stay - everything provided that you could need and more. Comfy beds, we only didn't get to use hot tub as we were visiting friends and ran out of time. Brilliant location too. Liz is very friendly and made us very welcome. Would definitely stay again, kids loved the farm...

We had a great weekend for my friend's stag in Taunton. Meare Court Farm provided a great base, the accommodation provided loads of room, was well equipped and well looked-after and is in a beautiful setting. The booking process was easy and the hosts were friendly and easily contactable both before our stay and during it. A couple of previous...

We stayed for a weekend in July as a mixed group of 13 friends. We really enjoyed our stay at Meare Court. The house is spacious with bedrooms on 3 floors and 3 bathrooms (contrary to some other reviews, we had no issues at all with hot water). The whole house feels old which lends it some quirks and character...

We stayed in meare court farm to celebrate a hen do. There are three floors and it is a beautiful farm house. The beds were very comfy. The top floor was great and led one bedroom to another, so seven of us all slept together which was a lovely big sleep over. The kitchen is great and has a lovely...

5 of us stayed in the Old Barn and the accommodation is lovely. The spa is a fab option for those who want some pampering - I can recommend the luxury facial! The bed in the upstairs bedroom isn't very large for 2 people sharing who aren't a couple, but manageable for a couple of nights. Very friendly owners and...

The cottage its self was amazing, beautiful and location was amazing. What let it down massively was the hot tub closed at 7pm and we weren't advised this over the telephone or no where on the website is this stated. After paying £1600 I would assume we could do what we wanted on our weekend as we had hired it!...
