East Harptree, Somerset, England
As soon as you drive through the gates and take in the incredible views over 4 counties, you won't be disappointed by your stay at The Grove. Converted in 2008, Springfield Farm and The Grove has since won awards and been featured on BBC1 for the quality of the work. With two large double bedrooms upstairs with their own shower room and two further large doubles on the lower ground floor with a large family bathroom (including large walk-in shower), The Grove is perfectly suited to almost every combination of family or group. On the ground floor is a large sitting room with 3 large sofas complete with DVD/TV as well as a large kitchen dining area with oval dining table and separate breakfast bar.

Eight adults stayed in the cottage for five days over the Christmas period. There are beautiful views around the cottage, overlooking Chew valley Lake and you can go out the farm on foot into a local forest for walks, though for anywhere else (including pubs) you really need your car. It is situated in a lovely part of the world,...

Danusia, thank you for taking the time to write this review so long after your stay. We really appreciated your feedback last Christmas. The Grove now has a great new tv and dvd player.
