We stayed here this Friday night, & wished we had booked more....our bedroom, the Garden Room, was delightful airy, spacious and very comfortable, bathroom excellent. The day and evening was very sultry and enabled us to move slowly. Its quaint, quirky and comfortable, not modern clean and streamlined, Staff are not high in evidence but someone always comes when needed,... More

We bought the Amazon Local Voucher based on the web advert for this hotel, having first checked availability for 2 sets of dates in August. Preliminary confirmation came through, stating that the breakfast was a light Continental breakfast. No mention of this in the advert. We queried this with the hotel and they said "Nothing to do with us, you... More

Twin room was very spacious with small sofa, big TV and ample storage space. Beds were comfortable and attractively dressed. Evening meal was excellent and although we hadn't booked and the restaurant was full we were accomodated in the bar area. Delicious breakfast with above average cooked items and a toaster that really worked! Service was very friendly and helpful.... More

I was given a voucher for afternoon tea for my birthday. The hotel is very homely and sweet and is in a beautiful location. A very nice chap showed us to a room with a bar and asked us if we wanted tea or coffee. I thought we would be taken to a dining room but they came back with... More

Booked an overnight stay for a client meeting which we wanted away from the usual Travellodge horrors. What a find! Genuinely helpful staff - fab rooms and lovely informal atmosphere. Good food and wine. And all run by a Scottie dog! Great value for money.

We decided that on our way to Cornwall we'd break up the journey with a nights stay at the Farthings Country House Hotel. We easily found the hotel located in a small pretty village and opposite the village hall and playing fields not far from the A303. The peace and quiet was evident as we arrived and parked the car...

On our way to visit someone in Hospital in Taunton, stopped at Farthings for lunch. Only sandwiches available, but what sandwiches. My BLT warm and made with generous amount of thick cut bacon "just like what we used to cure at home when I was a boy" Wife's smoked salmon sandwich, excellent quality salmon and huge quantity.

We stopped by for afternoon tea and after a very baffling conversation about which deals could be used in connection with which menus, we ended up having afternoon tea. £30 for sandwiches, cakes and a drink each was a bit steep. And I have never seen a scone so small. Don't believe the hype - this is an expensive rip-off.... More
