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

My husband and I recently took his parents to stay for two nights at Farthings Country House Hotel as is ideally situated between Cornwall and Hampshire with both coasts of Somerset/Devon easily accessible. I booked direct with the Hotel having seen an offer on Groupon and were given Groupon rates (so the hotel would have benefited from not having to... More

Had read rave reviews about this place but we were very unimpressed. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the place looked gorgeous. The staff were what really let it down - untrained and inexperienced and their attitude was that they were so good. It is in a small village with nothing to offer. There is a pub too down... More

The Farthings is a beautiful country house in an idyllic setting. We stayed in the Cedar room which has a beautiful view to the rear of the hotel. The room was perfectly clean with tasteful decoration. Sadly the fire alarm went off twice during the night with false alarms. We had the continental breakfast in the morning. It was adequate...

The Farthings is a beautiful country home in a pretty little village. The rooms are gorgeous with lovely attention to detail. Sadly the night we stayed there were 2 false fire alarms! We had the continental breakfast in the morning which was adequate if a little chaotic. They were having to have the meal in a different room due to... More

Outstanding value on a travel zoo deal. Our room was beautiful with views of the garden. The hotel menu caters for most tastes even if it isnt extensive. You might struggle if you eat here more than twice. A wonderful place to relax in a sleepy beauiful village. Extra tip.... save your self the walk and dont bother going to... More

Lovely lounge and bar areas, comfortable atmosphere before and after dinner. The restaurant choices on the set menu were varied. We were both undecided as we could have selected several dishes from both starter and main courses. Everything we picked was tasty and fresh - excellent! Room was clean and beds comfy. Water was hot and setting tranquil. What more... More
