Accommodation was very comfortable, the shower delivered, coffee and tea in the bedroom, and a view of the cows in the fields from the... More

Attending a family wedding nearby, a group of 11 of us took over the accommodation at Shave Farm for a long weekend. It couldn't have been a more delightful experience - great accommodation and breakfasts, acres of space, hot tub and BBQ, working farm with calves arriving every day and above all charming and friendly hosts, Kate and James. We... More

(Ground floor livingroom/dining room, first floor ensuite bedroom with a double and single bed). Fresh flowers in living room together with fresh fruit bowl. Fantastic breakfast delivered by... More

Lovely room (more accurately a suite), great hospitality - fresh pot of coffee and biscuits on arrival, and great surroundings. Brilliant to be able to go for a nice walk in open countryside after a couple of hours in the car. Breakfast... More

We had a one night stop over on the way down to Minehead and chose Shave Farm on the basis of the location and previous reviews. We arrived a little later than we wanted but were warmly greeted by Kate and showed round the delightful accommodation. Kate made us teas and coffee with biscuits and we relaxed by the fire... More

My husband and I stayed at Shave Farm for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were welcomed warmly and shown to our room which was more like a suite - downstairs a comfortable settee and dining table, a fridge and television. Upstairs was an en-suite bedroom with a double and a single bed. All fittings were of... More

We booked Shave Farm as a result of the superb reviews on Trip advisor! We completely agreed with the ratings, fabulous location, well signposted and excellent accommodation. Tastefully decorated, exceptionally comfortable bed and well cooked, plentiful breakfast. Well done Kate, the reviews on Trip advisor are well deserved!
