Pam and Sandy are what every B&B host should be in the UK. The farmhouse is beautiful, spotlessly clean and very very comfortable. The breakfast is cooked to order, and quality ingredients. I love it here. Staying here is like visiting your favourite aunt & uncle, who haven't seen you in ages so spoil you rotten. Nothing is too much... More

I arrived at this 16th century home and found the fire blazing in the fireplace, how wonderful. My very spacious room overlooked the pool and the green rolling pastures that identify England as the most beautiful island. Farm fresh eggs in the dining room for breakfast, and it was so welcoming with such friendly service from my hosts, Pam and... More

We stayed for two nights at Crapnell Farm. The quietness was wonderful. Although the farm is in the middle of nowhere you are only 2 miles away from Wells and Shepton Mallet. The farmhouse has a warm feeling as you walk in, a family home. Our room overlooked the front garden, the room was large, bright and well kept with... More

A wonderful farmhouse B&B centrally located between Wells and Shepton Mallet. We had a great welcome from Sandy (Pam was unfortunately away). Our room was very clean and spacious with the most comfortable bed and furnishings, with lovely views of the countryside. Sandy's breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. This was intended to be a relaxing... More

This is a proper farmhouse B&B, near Wells and Glastonbury. Beautiful views in the most welcoming B&B you could imagine. Pam is a great hostess and Sandy's breakfasts are excellent. Real old fashioned value for money. I'm not surprised people go back there again and again. I will for sure. It is beautiful with roaring fires every night during the... More

We have just returned from a lovely 3 nights at Crapnell Farm. Pam and Sandy were both very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and large, with very comfy bed. Tea and coffee tray was refreshed daily. Breakfasts as others have said were excellent and cooked to order each morning. Pam and Sandy were very flexible, allowing us... More

We stayed at the end of July for two nights and throughly enjoyed our first visit to Somerset. Pam and Sandy were excellent hosts, providing a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The farmhouse, set in a truly beautiful garden, is picture perfect and a delightful home to relax in.

Stumbled upon this place following signs leading down a single track road. Felt I had entered an episode of 'Escape to the Country'. Would have liked to stay 2 nights but only 1 available due to a cancellation. Kept hoping for another cancellation but no such luck. Received very warm welcome from what I assume to be Sandy (regretfully, we... More

We can't recommend this farmhouse highly enough. The house is delightful, the bedrooms are spacious, spotless, and comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. Pam and Sandy are lovely people, very welcoming and hospitable, nothing is too much trouble. You arrive as strangers and leave as friends. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

After staying with Pam and Sandy, we feel part of their family. Pam showed us pictures and told stories of all the children, how the World Rally Champion Richard Burns became part of that family and their fight with his brain tumor. She always wrote driving directions to where we were going each day. Talking to Sandy about dairy farming... More
