Model Farm is a country house consisting of an impressive Victorian front to a 17th century farmhouse and cider barn. The accommodation is all in one house, sleeping 24 in 10 bedrooms, 5 en-suite with 3 bathrooms. Due to COVID-19 we can now offer the house as 2 separate apartments for smaller groups, these can be booked separately or together.
The Victorian area retains many of the original features, high ceilings with impressive cornicing, original fireplaces and stained glass windows. There is a large kitchen/diner and a large lounge with seating on leather Chesterfields. There is also an additional kitchen/diner in the Cider Barn with a table football table and just outside a large covered loggia suitable for outside dining with a 4 burner gas BBQ .
There are 4 acres of glorious gardens with large selection of different plants designed around being wildlife friendly, you will find plants of interest throughout all the seasons of the year. There is a log fired Scandinavian style Hot Tub seating 8 people and several patio areas, with plenty of seating throughout the grounds. We also have a croquet lawn, football area with large goal, lots of outdoor games with a willow tunnel/camp for the children and various bits of garden art. There is ample off road parking.
We tend to specialise in large groups for the weekend normally for 2 nights, Friday and Saturday and you don't need to leave until Sunday afternoon if you wish. This is around 2/3 the price of a weeks stay. A 3 night stay or mid-week stay is also available. We are happy for all types of group to stay apart from very young adults and stag parties. We will accept up to 2 dogs per group and have an external dog shower just in case!
We have a new 55 sq. m Orangery which can be used for larger functions or corporate events at an additional expense, please contact Dave and Roz if you are interested in using this area.
Model Farm is situated in the hamlet of Perry Green only 8 minutes by car from Bridgwater, yet in the peace and quiet of the country. Junctions 23 and 24 of the M5 are only 5 miles away. The Quantock Hills are a short drive away and there are plenty of footpaths in the area with some excellent walking where you can visit the many pubs in the local area for a great lunch or dinner. The village of Cannington with its pubs and gardens is a pleasant walk away and also has a golf course, horse riding, paintball/laser shooting and an adventure climbing area.
