I cannot express strongly enough how wonderful our stay was at Parsonage Farm. Beautiful spacious room, wonderful breakfasts and the stunning Quantock Hills right on your doorstep. Suki is a warm, friendly person who made me, my daughter and our dog very welcome indeed - fantastic tea and cake greeted us on our arrival and breakfast was a lovely relaxed affair on both mornings of our stay. This was our first time visiting Somerset and we couldn't possibly picked a nicer place to stay. We will most definitely be going back to stay here again! Jo, Becky & Cookie

We had a wonderful few days at Parsonage Farm. It is situated in a tranquil village and is the perfect base for exploring the Quantocks.
Suki made us very welcome, providing at our request a delicious evening meal with produce from her own vegetable plot. I must also mention the fantastic breakfasts - either traditional English with locally sourced products or freshly-made pancakes and maple syrup from (I guess) Suki's native Vermont. Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean, with wonderful beds - like sleeping in a marshmallow!
Suki is great at suggesting things to do/places to eat based on her expert local knowledge!
All in all, it was a delight to stay at Parsonage Farm. Our only regret was that we weren't there on a Friday night when, in the summer, Suki hosts outdoor parties with pizzas made in her traditional bread ovens - very popular with guests and locals alike.

Room Tip: There is a double ensuite; a twin en suite; and a further double with sole use (I think) of a separa...

Parsonage Farm is a lovely place! I stayed here over the recent holidays and it was a beautiful warm and cosy visit. We particularly enjoyed the log fires for relaxing by after walking on the Quantock Hills. The breakfasts were also delicious and eating by that open log fire was a treat. There is a particularly warm welcome in this home and the Quantocks are beautiful.

A beautiful village and Parsonage Farm has views of the church next door and of its own well stocked walled garden. Don't let Suki's American accent fool you into thinking she is a newcomer. After living at Parsonage Farm for twenty years she is steeped in Somerset life, passionate about providing home-grown organic food and you would be well advised to take her advice about where to eat. After an excellent breakfast, Suki will happily make suggestions for your walk in the Quantocks and, if necessary, provide you with a map. Then, step out of the door, turn right and walk.

We only had one night at this charming period farmhouse but would love to go back for longer. The weather was very wet but inside this cosy house of history, we didn't care and we did go for a walk round the pretty organic walled garden and the interesting church next door. The surrounding countryside begged to be explored but we didn't have time as we were in the area for a family wedding.
There was on entrance a lovely dinning room with a large table and many objects/antiques of interest. There where fireplaces or stoves in every room and Suky lit a fire in the large comfortable lounge. Again, lots of interesting objects and a large collection of historical and geographical reading matter and maps etc, relating to the area. Again, wish we had had more time. There was a piano which you were invited to play, (so I did!) and sherry and whisky available for a night cap at no extra charge.
The bedroom was huge and airy with beautiful views of the garden and Quantock Hills. The bed was larger than average and very comfortable. There was a good selection of coffee and teas, including several herbal ones on the drinks making tray, Also very interesting biscuits along with a teapot and a bottle of water. nothing was left wanting. The en suite was old fashioned in a way that has come back into fashion.(There was no shower but there was one in the bathroom next door on the landing.) There was even a hot water bottle in there! Again, beautiful view into the walled garden from the bath tub and lots of thick towels.
There were so many little touches that made this place special and inviting. You were made to feel at home by the ambiance and the hostess Suky.
The choices for breakfast were difficult as there were more choices than average for a B&B. Organic home cooked and home grown. The eggs were free range from the resident garden chickens. The smoked salmon and scrambled egg, home made bread and preserves were delicious. Everything in the house was eco friendly and organic. Even the loo roll!
We would definately go back there and recommend it as a cultural experience of country living in a delightful little village. I put together a small video/slide show available on You Tube...

Hope you can find this. Thank you Suky for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: The Garden Room has en suite and beautiful views. Best room in the house.

We spent one night at Parsonage Farm recently. It is a beautiful house, in a beautiful gardens. I had house envy immediately - large rooms, packed with character and the smell of an open fire...

I was going through a bout of insomnia but slept like a log in a huge and very comfy bed.

Our host was very welcoming and makes fabulous pancakes.

What I particularly loved about this place was that it wasn't standard fare, it was individual and quirky. If you want immaculate and modern this is not the place for you. It is a wonderful old building with worn stone floors etc, and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing, enjoyable stay.

I can't wait to go back for one of their pizza evenings.

Oh and, there were no chives neatly arranged on my breakfast - I hate chives on my breakfast, it is pretentious and unnecessary, and a waste of good herbs.

We had a very wet couple of days in the Quantock Hills but a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at Parsonage Farm. The house is full of books, works by local artists - some of which you can buy - and locally produced pottery. The hosts are very accommodating, the breakfasts excellent. All in all highly recommended, rain or shine.
