We had a great stay at this venue, couldn't have asked for more. It was secluded, but within walking distance of pubs and driving distance of shops, beach and other activities.
The facilities at the house were great and was stocked with toiletries, cooking oil, spices and such like; most importantly it was stocked with coffee!
It's also pet friendly which was handy, really can't fault the place.
Hope to stay again soon, or try one of their other locations!
I hired this beautiful house for my mother’s 70th birthday, it was a truly perfect place for all adults and children to come together to celebrate.
The kitchen is amazingly equipped (and I have stayed in dozens of houses like this), everything that we needed.
The oven is big enough to cook a dinner for 18, the dining table was big enough for us all to sit at.
It was lovely and warm thanks to the heated floors.
The bedrooms were spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated.
The hot tub was huge, everyone enjoyed it even in the freezing wind.
The grounds were beautiful and the children even had the pleasure of watching a baby sheep be born.
The younger couples enjoyed the annex and the pool table tournaments.
Everyone enjoyed the comfy lounge and log burner.
The house helped us create wonderful memories that will be treasured forever.
I will definitely be back!!! Hopefully next time I the summer so that we can appreciate the grounds more.
19 of us, aged from 20 months to 75 years, plus two dogs, descended on Smokeham Farm for a week-long family holiday. A robust challenge for any establishment. This beautifully renovated, well-equipped farmhouse passed with flying colours. Set amongst the lush, rolling, Somerset countryside, with stunning views in virtually every direction, you have the feel of being in an authentic farmhouse, while not having to get your feet muddy. Red Devon (I think) cows with their calves, roam the surrounding fields. The large, modern kitchen could seat us all, while each of the comfortable bedrooms are en suite. The spacious living area, with giant flat-screen tv, DVDs, video and board games, was ideal for evenings in. An adjoining building housed our teenagers, who took full advantage of the pool table. The external hot tub was enjoyed by all ages. The location is perfect for walks, trips to Dunster Castle, Dunkery Hill, the coast or any of the numerous charming towns and villages in the area. If this is the sort of thing you're after, then look no further.
We stayed here for my sisters hen do and everything was perfect!
Beautiful en-suite rooms, great communal space, the hot tub in full working order and (of course) pretty local pubs!
Highly recommend staying here for large group gatherings *****
We'll be back!
From the wow factor upon arrival, to the relaxed atmosphere throughout our stay, Smokeham Farm offered everything needed to help our 50th birthday celebration with friends very memorable. Everything has been thought of, ensuring maximum relaxation for everyone.
Currently at Smokeham, with 16 other members of the family. Excellent accomdation n superb surroundings .... Whether you want to walk, sight see or just enjoy the British countryside .... Something for everybody.
Tips for those arriving , the directions are poor , especially at night! From the junction in west bag borough, it's about 0.7 mile ....
Minor gripes, no shaver points and the lighting in the upper lounge is too much, or not enough....
Absolutely amazing accomodation, cannot recommend this property enough. 5 +++ stars. Absolute luxury.
Came for a hen weekend with 15 other women, the house sleeps up to 20 people with 9 ensuite bedrooms, all furnished and decorated to an extremely high standard. The detail around the house was impeccable.
The owner of the house was extremely helpful with any issues that we had, and was only a phone call away if needed.
The location of the house is amazing, with stunning views. 20 minute car journey from Taunton town where we enjoyed a lovely meal at The Cosy Club and then went on for drinks at Mambo (highly recommended - amazing bar for all ages!!)
Recommended taxi service for larger groups - A1 Ace Taxis. Couldn't recommend these guys enough, there were extremely accommodating and friendly.
Hot tub at the property was amazing and seated up to 14 (maybe more!), definitely the best part of the house.
The views again were absolutely amazing, we were surrounded by sheep, cows and horses along with the breathtaking views of the countryside.
If you are looking for a dancing activity as part of a hen weekend - highly recommend Studio 22 which was a 30 minute car journey from the house. Absolutely amazing dancing activity including nibbles and bubbly. The instructors were fab and made it lots of fun for the whole group!!
Couldn't recommend this house enough and we will definitely be returning!
