  • "This house was amazing, in a beautiful location with views for days."

    It was massive and fitted all 12 of us with ease. The hot tub and games room were an added bonus. Honestly 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for some time away from the hustle and bustle. Meg was lovely and accommodating and even went to the trouble of some thoughtful little touches, such as bunting and some delicious homemade cake!!

  • "What an absolutely beautiful Farmhouse!"

    We stayed as a family of 12 including 4 children. The house itself had everything you needed with every fine detail thought out by the owners. When we arrives there was a lovely welcome notice with recommendations of local to dos. And an eater egg hunt for the children. Well presented and lovely and clean. Highly recommend Nempnett Farmhouse. Thank you so much!

  • "The house was amazing and we had a great time."

    There is one thing that wasn't great is that the house is in the middle of nowhere and you cannot walk anywhere, you would always need a car to go anywhere. The roads were very narrow .

  • "Absolutely superb property and amenities, lovely welcome and contact before arrival, if we need to head towards Bristol again we'll definitely be back."

  • "The house was great and we had an amazing stay."

    It was clean, comfortable and very spacious. The owners were friendly and left us to it. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Mrs Katie WintourJan 2024

  • "Absolutely fabulous property and owners."

    Owners couldn't have been kinder, more communicative and welcoming. The house is amazing - all the mod cons and comforts but in a traditional farmhouse, we all loved our time at Nempnett and really didn't want to leave. Location was ideal, 20 minutes in to Bristol but super quiet in it's own right. We checked to see if the house was available for Xmas and were so disappointed to find it was all booked up. Thank you to the Fords for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful house.

    Mrs Rebecca HowellsJan 2024

  • "Fantastic house!"

    Modern, clean and well appointed for adults and children. House was perfect for a large family getaway. Hot tub and games room were a fantastic bonus, even on a cold winter evening. Will certainly be recommending to friends and family and hope to return soon!

  • "What a beautiful home, property was alot more spacious that we thought."

    We were a family of 12 with a 2 month old baby. Everyone had a great weekend, lovely country walks, hot tub, and outdoor games rooms. The host Meg was excellent on communication and recommendations. We would definitely book again in the future

    Mrs Anna VincentNov 2023

  • "We are so so happy to have found this property."

    It was absolutely huge & beautifully furnished & decorated. Each of the 3 bathrooms had gorgeous fittings/fixtures & all the bedrooms were spacious with the most comfortable of beds. Best sleep I’ve had in quite some time. The jacuzzi was huge & amazing set in an enclosed private garden area which was brilliant for the dogs (the garden not the jacuzzi I hasten to add) The entire property was spotlessly clean with everything you would need for a holiday away. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay & in fact we’ve only just arrived home & had to get writing a well deserved review. What we found thoughtful was the little finishing touches that the owners had thought of. For instance chocolates on our towels in each of our bedrooms; fresh milk in the fridge and home made cakes to welcome us. Not forgetting the huge home grown pumpkin for the children to carve out to celebrate Halloween

    Ms Llinos ThomasNov 2023

  • "Outstanding property!"

    Very spacious, fully equipped with everything that you could as for. Immaculately clean. The hosts are extremely welcoming, and always on hand if you have any questions! Would highly recommend this property, and will definitely be back!

  • "This is beautiful property and great hosts."

    We had a lovely time and there was 9 of us. Will definitely be making a return visit.

  • "A wonderful farmhouse, beautifully decorated, with everything an extended family could need."

    7 adults, 3 children (8, 7 & 3) and 1 medium dog, enjoyed a great holiday together here. The garden is fully enclosed so your furry friend is safe. A huge plus for us. The hot tub was great, and the patio and garden are ideal for the kids to play and adults to relax. The farmhouse itself is just perfect. Lots of space. A really practical, beautiful bespoke oak kitchen with everything you could need. The lounge is large with an enormous inglenook fireplace housing the log burner and plenty of seating. Beautiful deep pile carpet that our girly girl daughter said was divine. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have plenty of storage, and the beds are really large or super large and very comfortable. Mattresses on the the firmer side, which suited us perfectly. The bathrooms are spacious and have fab showers with great pressure. The children couldn't get over the space. The single thing we all absolutely loved was enjoying family meals in the dining room together at the lovely dining table. Our 8 year old granddaughter said that's what she loved the most about the whole week. The games room was well used too. There was nothing we didn't like. Everything spotlessly clean. It is in a rural location, so be prepared for some narrow lanes with passing places. We had 2 x 7 seaters and a saloon car and didn't have any problems. Plenty of parking. Dog walking along lanes and footpaths. Ordnance Survey maps free trial was useful. Easy enough to get to Bristol, Weston-Super-mare, Brean Sands. Would highly recommend Tynings Trekking for horse riding, and we had a wonderful day out at Noahs Ark Farm and Zoo. Well worth the money. Would highly recommend Nempnett. Owners live nearby, but completely unobtrusive. We also ordered a Tesco delivery for the evening of our arrival which worked perfectly well.

  • "Nempnett Farmhouse was extremely clean and very comfortable."

    The beds were large and very comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe and draw space. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking, eating and drinking utensils and there was plenty of room for storage of food. The hot tub and garden were very nice with plenty of room for the kids to run around. The games room had a pool table, table tennis and darts. We had a lovely time in a very quiet area. The owners were very nice and very helpful. The age range was between 6 and 72

    Mrs Sharon BakerJul 2023

  • "We had the most amazing stay at Nempnett Farmhouse."

    We went for a short break with the family, and it is a great size for accommodating large family get togethers. It has only recently been finished but I can honestly say it has been done extremely well, certainly the best we have ever stayed in. They have thought of everything and you could easily rustle up anything in the kitchen. The beds and bedding were wonderful, it was spotlessly clean and the garden totally enclosed. Hot tub was amazing and lots of games to borrow. The owners were very helpful if needed. Many thanks for a great stay :)
