    “The farmhouse is fabulous.”

    . plenty of space, a great location and really well equipped. As it was Christmas, there was a lovely decorated Christmas tree waiting for us and the house was really warm and welcoming. Just a few of things that would have really made a difference. We had allocated the single room to my 88 yr old mother. Unfortunately this bedroom was a real let down. The mattress was very uncomfortable, there was no mirror, and nowhere for her to put her clothes. We ended up swapping a mattress from the twin ...

    . plenty of space, a great location and really well equipped. As it was Christmas, there was a lovely decorated Christmas tree waiting for us and the house was really warm and welcoming. Just a few of things that would have really made a difference. We had allocated the single room to my 88 yr old mother. Unfortunately this bedroom was a real let down. The mattress was very uncomfortable, there was no mirror, and nowhere for her to put her clothes. We ended up swapping a mattress from the twin room for her to sleep on, however, the twin beds are very narrow (fine for children) but as an adult she still struggled, which was a real shame. The only other comments we would make is that none of the dinner plates fit the current dishwasher, they were all too tall so to clean them properly we had to do them by hand. There are no champagne glasses (I did check this beforehand as I had seen previous comments about it, so we brought our own). However, for Christmas celebrations or any other celebrations I think they should be supplied as standard, and there are ony 2 pint glasses and one set of cutlery. Apart from the above the kitchen was really well equipped with cookware and cooking utensils and the layout worked really well.

    Thank you for your feed back. We're glad you had a great Christmas in Surridge Farmhouse. We have since replaced 3 mattresses in the property, thank you for letting us know. We have checked the dishwasher and can confirm that they do fit in the dishwasher, we do provide a number in the property for you to call if you encounter any problems. - Sykes owner relations

The property

At the foot of the quietly beautiful Brendon Hills and on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, near the small hamlet of Waterrow is Surridge Farmhouse.

This handsome, detached Grade II listed farmhouse, dating back to the 17th century, stylishly combines elegant modern living with original period features.

On the ground floor, you'll find a smart kitchen/breakfast room with AGA and additional conventional oven, an excellent dining room with wood burning stove and an enormous 29ft lounge with fireplaces at either end, traditional beamed ceilings and original window seats.

The games room with TV/DVD, bean bags, table football and air hockey is perfect for rainy days or just keeping the children occupied.

The original half-turn staircase leads up to five bedrooms; the enormous master double with lovely views and an en suite shower room, two smart doubles, a twin and a single room.

Two further bathrooms complete the accommodation.

Surridge Farmhouse sits in a ring fence of 80 acres of pasture and woodland with its own Iron Age Fort perfect for exploring, or perhaps relax in the illuminated six person hot tub on the large south facing patio whilst taking in the endless views across the surrounding countryside.

Whichever you choose you're sure to have a fantastic holiday in a truly peaceful spot.

About the location

WIVELISCOMBE

Taunton 11 miles.

Known affectionately as Wivey, this historic market town is set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. This is a perfect centre from which to set out on outdoor pursuits; from fishing for trout on the peaceful waters of Clatworthy Reservoir or Wimbleball Lake, horse-riding at a number of stables in the area or simply taking a long walk through the idyllic countryside on well-signed paths. There are several excellent independent shops in Wiveliscombe including an award-winning butcher, antique shops, a gunsmith and the well known Court House, a striking three-storey independent shop that attracts visitors from far afield. The village is half an hour's drive from North Somerset's beaches, such as Blue Anchor Bay and, as the gateway to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, an ideal base for walking and other pursuits in one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The picturesque Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Bampton are within driving distance. A perfect holiday destination - peace coupled with good facilities and leisure pursuits.
