Holiday Rental House
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 area 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.

Whilst in a rural setting Model Farm is ideally situated to explore all of Somerset, 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 from the farm. The village of Cannington with its pubs, walled garden, shops and Indian restaurant is a pleasant 20 minute walk over the meadows. There are a host of different activities in the area from gardens, the caves at Cheddar Gorge or Wookey Hole, 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 cidersMore
