The word out of my mouth when we opened the door to the garden room. A truly stunning room even had its own entrance hall! A very large bed in a large room that was tastefully laid out. Desk, dressing table, large chest of drawers, loads of storage space.(take a breath). Lovely view of the garden from a window seat,... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review, we at The Farthings are very proud of all our rooms. May I suggest next time you stay to request either Rowan or Bay rooms which truly are the crown in our rooms. Kind regards Shaun More

On arrival me and my mum found the over all appearance of the hotel very welcoming, homely and picturesque, especially after taking a walk around the grounds. The rooms are a really good size, very clean!!! The shower was really good, we had a sofa in our room next to our tv which was lovely (cedar room) we came on... More

We've been to the restaurant here twice using a Groupon voucher for steak and wine. The setting is pretty and the dining room tables laid with white tablecloths and fresh flowers. Food arrived quickly and was nicely presented, tasty and hot. My steak was a bit on the chewy side but the garlic butter and home made chips were spot... More

We enjoyed our stay - relaxing. Lovely gardens looked fab in the heat wave when we were there. Restaurant food good. Pleasant & helpful staff. I agree that the WiFi should be free - don't irritate people! This is a pleasant & quiet place to stay - if you seek nightlife go to Taunton.

The building is gorgeous, lovely decor throughout and clean. Had a welcoming email after booking - welcome a bit diluted by the offer to upgrade the room at more than double the price! Politely declined. Breakfast offered a good selection, but needed topping up more efficiently as items ran out quite quickly. 'Pastries' turned out to be croissants only which... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Farthings and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is in a lovely village location and again we were given a large, clean and well appointed room. The staff were very welcoming and the food in the restaurant, though not cheap, was excellent. Unfortunately, two of my pet peeves rather took away from... More

There was so much to praise about The Farthings. A quaint country hotel that is spotlessly clean, with helpful staff and very good food. We loved the garden and the fact that much of the restaurant fare can be found just outside the back door! Meals were lovely, and there is clearly care taken in the kitchen to make mealtimes...

We stayed for 2 nights and had breakfast and evening meals - all very delicious. The huge bed in the Blue room was very comfortable and we slept really well, the duvet and good quality sheets made it feel like sleeping in whipped cream. Lovely bathroom. Welcoming hosts, I stayed in all day when my husband went to a museum... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as part of our car tour in the south west. We were very pleased and would certainly go back if in the area again (we live in north Scotland). The garden has peacocks, geese etc nearby and they grow a lot of their own veg and herbs. When you see the chef... More
