Gorgeous house that I would happily live in if I could add a few modern conveniences :-) Beautiful setting and you can do a circular walk too. Always worth seeing if the lavender project next dorset is open too.

Happened to see this on line, worth a visit if you are already in the area but I wouldn't drive miles as only small, we only stayed for about 10minutes but definitely worth a look. Free parking and admission.

Well not quite ! But still an interesting little Manor House supposedly built for the Sheriff of Somerset. Well preserved and would originally been a lot bigger as the adjoining building is privately owned and therefore not accessible. Free parking and admission. I combined it...More

This small, but interesting old manor house is an absolute delight. Just tucked away a few hundred yards from the main road this is worth a look. Furthermore you can then enjoy a lovely walk by the river complete with old barns, a hydrowater wheel...More

A sensitively restored building in an idyllic riverside location. Small, but lots of little details to enjoy. Check out the beautiful hand- made clear glass in the leaded lights!
