“Really fabulous B&B in gorgeous rural surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

We had a really gorgeous stay at Pound Farm earlier this month, when we visited the area to go to a friend's 50th birthday party. To be honest the next day was a bit of a write off, so I didn't get to appreciate this lovely B&B as much as I would've without a hangover. But I'd definitely like to come back and spend some more time here, enjoying the peaceful surroundings and the delicious breakfast...

Although slightly off the beaten track, it wasn't too hard to find Pound Farm - just beware of taking the wrong exit to Bishops Lydeard, as then all the directions will be backwards! Up a single lane track, you get to Pound Farm and it feels really peaceful and rural. It's a working farm and there are fields and sheep all around. Nice comfy rooms and absolutely GREAT mattress. Our room had a double mattress, so it was a little smaller than we're used to, but it was very comfy and the linen and pillows etc were really nice quality too. We paid £60 for the room for the night, which seemed very reasonable for the high standard, friendly welcome and lovely surroundings.

I left feeling really spoiled and well taken care of. Lots of lovely coffee and a good cooked breakfast in the morning with amazing farm eggs. I'm sure there are lots of great paths for walking near here, and I'd love to come back again.

Stayed for one night when visiting family in the area. It was like staying with an aunty in the country! Bit difficult to get there but once you are it is very peaceful and there are some great views! The breakfast in the morning was wonderful, I assume it was all from their farm! Tasted very fresh and brilliantly cooked! Thanks for a great stay! :)
