Stumbled upon this place following signs leading down a single track road. Felt I had entered an episode of 'Escape to the Country'.
Would have liked to stay 2 nights but only 1 available due to a cancellation. Kept hoping for another cancellation but no such luck.
Received very warm welcome from what I assume to be Sandy (regretfully, we never introduced each other by name) with his broad and friendly smile, who said his wife had gone away for a day (so never met Pam). After showing us to our room (the Small Blue) he served us fresh tea & biscuits - very much appreciated!
Spotless and comfortable room, peaceful views over garden and fields - and heated towel rails!
As other reviewers said, you feel you leave as friends, not least after having 'met' all the family, whose portraits adorn the walls of this farmhouse home. (We also heard the story about the brain tumour after recognising Michael Schumacher in one of the photos)
Breakfast was great and very tasty. Sandy very helpful: when asked if he knew someone else in his FarmStay association who might offer accommodation in the area he looked it up for us.
Would definitely come back if in the area.
Excellent food at the nearby George Inn in Croscombe.
