Visitors Book

This is an ideal place for a family get together, with spacious rooms and a safe garden for the 'tots'. We were made to feel very welcome and find out hosts kind, thoughtful & generous. Despite the November weather the house is warm and Dave kindly kept us supplied with firewood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to be back in the future.

A perfect get-away for us city dwellers. The house is absolutely beautiful. It felt like we time travelled back to the 18th century, but with WiFi & other modern facilities! Thank you for providing everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely recommend this beautiful place & hospitality to all our friends and family back home, and also plan to re-visit our memories in future. Thanks again Dave & Roz.

Welcome to Model Farm

Model Farm Country House offers self-catering accommodation for up to 18 people in 7 or 8 bedrooms.

The house consists of an imposing Victorian front addition to a 17th century farmhouse. The self catering apartment consists of the south facing Victorian front and the more rustic Cider Barn. The Victorian part of the house retains most of the original features such as, high moulded ceilings, marble fireplaces and wooden floors. The Period furniture matches the Victorian features although a modern kitchen and facilities have been added. The Cider Barn incorporates part of the 17th century farmhouse and the original cider barn with exposed beams and slate floors.

2010 was our first year of business. Since then we have opened the Cider Barn and have been continually improving the house and grounds. We have spent a lot of time landscaping the grounds, adding new flowerbeds, an orchard and a wildlife pond. In 2013 we converted the old dairy and cold store to a new bedroom and bathroom. This year we have changed from letting 2 apartments seperately and now normally only let out as one large apartment, we made this change as nearly all our bookings were for both apartments together.

Biomass Heating

From January 2014 we have gone "Green"! Updating our oil based central heating system to 2 new wood pellet boilers. To do this we had to build a new boiler house to the rear of the property adjacent to the northeast wing. This has made a tremendous difference to the heat supplied to the house, with as much heat and hot water as we could want. One guest remarked "This is the only Country House I have stayed in where the whole house is Warm".

Self Catering Somerset

Whilst in a rural setting Model Farm Country House is only 8 minutes from the centre of Bridgwater, close to the coast, Quantock Hills, and the towns of Taunton, Glastonbury and Wells. There are many footpaths in the area that can be accessed directly from the House, the Parrett Way passes nearby and the village of Cannington with its Church, walled garden, shops and pubs is a pleasant walk.

There are many gardens open to the public, Cannington, Hestercombe, Cothay and Barrington to name a few, or simply enjoy yourself relaxing in out own extensive gardens.

Those with an interest in history have plenty of museums to visit including King John's Hunting Lodge and Admiral Blake's Museum. Visit the caves at Cheddar Gorge or Wookey Hole or Dunster Castle. The bird life on the levels is renowned, as are the potters and basket weavers. A visit to Somerset would not be complete without tasting the local wines and ciders
