More Information

This elegant 18th century country house is situated amid the quiet of the Somerset countryside, yet within reach of the M5, just 8 km (5 miles) from Taunton and Ilminster. Farthings overlooks the village green and enjoys 3 acres of private and peaceful gardens. With a wonderfully relaxing and informal atmosphere, it is the ideal place in which to unwind.

Privately-owned, the family and its experienced staff invite guests to savour the warm hospitality and superb locally sourced food, cooked and presented in the AA Rosette-awarded restaurant. The restaurant has direct access to the gardens, where drinks and canapes can be enjoyed on a warm summer's evening. In winter, enjoy the comfort and warmth of log fires in the cosy lounge or bar. Each of the 12 en suite rooms is tastefully decorated and has all the facilities one would expect of a delightful country house hotel.
