Holiday Rental House
Rock Farm is a stunning grade II listed farmhouse which has been completely restored and renovated from the ground up to the very highest standard with our first guests having arrived in March 2014. Dating back many centuries, this property combines all the original features one might expect such as inglenook fireplaces, original beams and of course the thatched roof with modern luxuries like under floor heating, en-suite bedrooms and an electric Aga. This property is split into two parts - the main original house and the Granary (annexe) which forms the other side of the courtyard setting. The main house has 4 beautiful en-suite bedrooms and is where the main kitchen, dining and living areas can be found which will accommodate the whole group comfortably. The Granary has 3 bedrooms which...Rock Farm is a stunning grade II listed farmhouse which has been completely restored and renovated from the ground up to the very highest standard with our first guests having arrived in March 2014. Dating back many centuries, this property combines all the original features one might expect such as inglenook fireplaces, original beams and of course the thatched roof with modern luxuries like under floor heating, en-suite bedrooms and an electric Aga. This property is split into two parts - the main original house and the Granary (annexe) which forms the other side of the courtyard setting. The main house has 4 beautiful en-suite bedrooms and is where the main kitchen, dining and living areas can be found which will accommodate the whole group comfortably. The Granary has 3 bedrooms which represent the quirky side of the property; each with their own distinctive style they share a good sized bathroom and the smaller of the bedrooms has it's own balcony from which to you can gaze over a significant proportion of Somerset. This property is situated in an outstanding location on the side of the highest point of the Quantock Hills; an area of outstanding natural beauty approximately a 15 min drive from the market town of Taunton. This means that the views from the house are simply stunning and you can see miles upon miles of Somerset's finest rolling hills and landscape. A particular delight when the West Somerset steam train is passing in the distance or when the mist settles beneath the house and all ahead of you is a sea of cloud... Rock Farm is equipped with stables and a paddock so it is perfect for groups that would like to bring their horses to explore riding routes covering some of the most breath taking, beautiful countryside in the UK. These circular routes reaching across Exmoor and the Quantock Hills will offer horse owners the opportunity to enjoy a horse holiday of a lifetime! More
