Boutique rural England charm at an award-winning 18th-century hotel in an idyllic Somerset village – includes breakfast and dinner

Set in the heart of Somerset, Farthings Country House Hotel is an elegant 18th-century hideaway and a real home from home. Stretch your legs in the picturesque gardens, stopping off to say hello to the hotel's much-loved chickens, who lay fresh eggs for breakfast each morning.

After a day of outdoor pursuits, cosy up in the lounge bar or enjoy a drink in the beautiful gardens, after sampling the hearty, home-cooked fare in the hotel's restaurant. All of the comfortable Master rooms are individually decorated in charming English country style, great for a good night's sleep after a day spent discovering the myriad Somerset attractions right on your doorstep.

All this and more led to Farthings Country House Hotel securing a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, a spot in Britain's Finest and also The Good Hotel Guide 2017.
