Wow - this house is just amazing.
Genuinely had an amazing weekend with 12 girls for a hen party. The house is decorated beautifully and has so many lovely finishing touches (the toiletries, the welcome hamper, the towels for the hot tub, all the magazines).
The hot tub was just the best - and because the house was so remote we sat outside in it until 4am both nights singing!
There's so much to do at the house, you could stay there all weekend and not go out. Such as in our case we stayed in both nights and had a private chef come to the house to cook for us.
John - thankyou so much for your hospitality and the laughs you gave us.
Will 100% be back - maybe with my family and dogs next time.
Highly recommend this to anyone!
I booked Park farm along with the gardener's cottage for my 30th birthday for me and my family including 3 dogs. There were 12 of us in total and we had no concerns with space! Most nights we would find ourselves in the spacious kitchen playing cards or board games and for those who didn't feel like joining there were 3 reception rooms to relax in.
We were able to enjoy dinner together at the large dining room table or sit outside on the patio where there were plenty of seats.
The tennis courts were a lovely addition however our skills could do with being better! The croquet lawn was a good laugh, the kids loved playing even though we didn't have a clue what we were doing and the views whilst playing are spectacular.
There were plenty of toys, puzzles, games, outside equipment for the children. There wasn't a moment when they had nothing to do.
There is very limited signal in the area but this was a pleasant reason to ignore phones for the week and we enjoyed valuable time together.
We enjoyed many nights in the hot tub and were lucky enough to get a couple of days of sun to enjoy the garden. After a week full of food and drink, the one time we ventured into the trees behind the farm we found the steep trek harder than anticipated.
Each of us had a very enjoyable week and John, Franceska and Churchill were highly accommodating. John and Franceska had a trip away themselves during our stay but Churchill came to see us each day to make sure everything was okay and if we needed any dog love.
Highly recommend staying at Park Farm!
What an absolute gem of a find. Franceska and John you have been absolutely wonderful from the word go and I can't thank you enough for all of your hospitality, help and for making my sister's Hen Weekend so special.
We had such a beautiful weekend at this idyllic home. Everything was just perfect from the house to the gardens, grounds, walks, welcome hamper, hottub, comfy beds, all the added extra touches, activities and everything in between. Absolute bonus that there is an option to bring a dog and we really appreciated this! We were a party of all ages and there was something for everyone. I cannot recommend Park Farm enough and we will definitely be back in the future!
We have made so many happy memories this weekend and could not have asked for a better place to celebrate Amy's Hen Weekend. Simply over the moon that we discovered this beautiful place. Thank You!
Christmas 2017 was made perfect when, we 8 adults, 4 children, and a few dogs made Park Farm house our Christmas home for the week, log fires, beautifully decorated Christmas tree, tasteful touches of holly and ivy and a luxury hamper of goodies greeted us. The peaceful Somerset country side with far reaching views set the scene - we walked the wood at the back, and along the river Cary at the front, and watched in wonder the resident barn owl having a late afternoon hunt in the paddock by the garden. Everyone enjoyed the gloriously warm hot tub.
The aga cooked our turkey to perfection, the well equipped kitchen had everything we needed. Comfortable beds ensured a good nights sleep and the space alowed snug tv watching, chatting over drinks in the middle sitting room or piano playing and reading in the library - we had everything we needed.
John and Franceska we salute you and are so happy to call you friends and recommend highly to those who might enjoy a perfect country retreat.
Beautiful, restful, cosy, clean, quiet, peaceful. Surrounded by nature in a beautiful part of Somerset, this is by far our favourite place to stay in the west country. Franceska and John are wonderful hosts, welcoming and warm. The cottage is a delight and we felt very rested during and after our stay. This was our second visit and we will be back! Thank you xx
Seventeen of us spent a fabulous weekend at this wonderful house celebrating my father’s 80th birthday. There was plenty to do for all ages - the children loved the games room, the hot tub was well used and we all enjoyed walks in the surrounding countryside and a trip to Haynes Motor Museum. It was great to all sit round the large dining table to eat together and everyone was comfy in the numerous bedrooms. Thanks for a great weekend!
Just had an amazing long weekend celebrating a 'big' birthday and wedding anniversary comprising seven adults and five children. The break started with a very warm welcome and introduction to the house by John and an extremely generous welcome pack from the owners. Everyone had a thoroughly great time due mainly to the accommodation and provisions. Park Farm had everything we could have wished for, and more. All age groups were catered for, from seven to seventy, due to the facilities provided. I fully recommend this location, and all members of my party wished our stay was longer, and all agreed we would return one day.
