“A truly wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I organised a surprise night away for my husbands 80th birthday. Just 4 close friends joined us for an overnight stay and we were all captivated by Peter and Orlando’s wonderful home and gardens. The meal cooked by Orlando was superb and was served with an interesting selection of wines that matched the food beautifully. I would highly recommend it.

This place is brilliant. It is a special place and I am kind of reluctant to tell anyone because I want to keep it to myself.
It has 10 rooms including the cottage. I have to say it would make a great place for a house party, a group of friends.
We had a stopover on our way down to Cornwall from Yorkshire but will return for a long weekend. I can't wait!

All you have read about this admirable place is true.
Peter and Orlando are superb hosts.
They have achieved a degree of perfection here that is remarkable.
The location is wonderful, a drop of pure bucolic Englishness set on the Somerset levels.
The house is a burnished wonder.
The gardens kempt but unregimented, with wonderful trees and shrubs.
The rooms have an understated beauty and are relaxing and comfortable.
This kind of apparently effortless perfection can only be achieved in fact by a great deal of effort, experience, and a professionalism worn lightly.
An altogether rewarding and strongly recommended experience.

Room Tip: You cant go wrong.

We spent one Friday night here and wished it was a week. Peter and Orlando were superb hosts and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. A perfect place to relax, leave the world behind and enjoy the magnificent and peaceful surroundings. Thank you and hope to return soon.

My boyfriend took me here for a surprise weekend for my birthday back in May.
Amazing stay. Everything about the place was perfect. Our room [Sybilla] in the main house was stunning, lovely view looking out of the front of the house and the bed was sooo comfy. We had dinner on both nights with the other guests all at the dining table which was really fun. Food was stunning. Loved meeting in the lounge first for canapes and on the 2nd night the weather was so nice we ate them in the garden. Would LOVE to go back. Thank you Peter & Orlando x

Had a fabulous 3 day break, staying at the Cottage; The main house is stunning and feels like a 5 star deluxe retreat; it felt like going to stay with family for the weekend (that you would want to spend time with!); food was awesome as were the hosts; Don't read any more reviews, just book;

Have just driven home in the pouring rain after a very wet weekend at Langford Fivehead. Even the wet weather couldn't undermine the warm welcome, good company and excellent food provided by Orlando and Peter in their beautiful home. It's almost as if they are hosting a house party rather than a business and in fact at 11pm last night we were still sitting at the dinner table.
