Stay in a farmhouse holiday home not far from the Mendips, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Somerset. Farmhouses are well known for their spacious nature and period features and Double House Farm is no exception. The house has five bright spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms. It can accommodate up to twelve people using all bedrooms and an additional two on a sofa bed if need be.
This Somerset farmhouse offers WiFi and a warm welcome
The big ground-floor sitting room has a flagged floor and feature windows that allow in plenty of light and one of the three TVs in the house with Sky.
A modern Shaker style kitchen has a dining table and retains the original bread oven for interest. Holidaymakers would find that the kitchen adequately meets their catering aspirations and is fitted with an electric double oven, halogen hob and microwave for cooking, the essential fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
A dining room has a long table with leather backed contemporary chairs. A logburner adds a glow to any night’s fine dining. Eco-friendly heating
Underfloor heating in the farmhouse is geothermal – very nice for bare feet. There is an extra woodburner in the garden room. The garden room also has a woodburner and is somewhere to sit if the weather is not as pleasant as desired. This room leads out onto the patio with garden furniture, a barbecue, a large grassed garden and rural views.
The master bedroom has that touch of luxury and includes its own private sitting room and en-suite shower room. There is another king-size bedroom and three twin bedrooms which share the facilities of a family bathroom that contains both a bath and a freestanding shower cubicle. A ground floor cloakroom provides an additional WC and wash basin.
Ample parking at this country cottage
There is plenty of parking in the driveway by the farmhouse.
