On stepping into Farthings and being warmly welcomed is just like one could imagine being invited to stay with ones country cousins in their grand house. Instantly comfortable and at home. The public rooms, and our bedroom, are decorated in a very homely style almost quintessentially English. We found the service to be friendly and efficient, just what one wants,...

We asked all our voucher customers to book via email, this is purely due to the fact we do not have a full time receptionist and the amount of information need with codes and spaces available. Im not sure how this would result in only one star? So you didn't like the room, staff or food? How petty can you...

Had dinner here last night with my husband and we found the whole experience a revelation! From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel incredibly welcome, nothing was too much trouble and absolutely nothing was overlooked. Then came the main event...........the food! Very extensive menu- all of which appealed to both of us (it's not...

A pretty hotel with good rooms - we stayed in the Garden room which was a good size room with 2 large windows overlooking the side garden. Staff were helpful and efficient at the bar and in the restaurant. Dinner was good rather than outstanding and maybe priced at the high end of its true value. Breakfast was very good,...

Spent two nights at this wonderful country hotel. We had the "Oak" room overlooking the garden with the geese, ducks, peacock and peahens. The whole ambiance of the place was homely especially the log fires burning in the lounge and bar. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. Will go again.

Just spent two night at this beautiful hotel tucked away in the Somerset countryside. From the moment we arrived it felt perfect. The room was beautifully furnished and dinner was excellent, not to mention breakfast with eggs from the ducks in the rear garden. We would thoroughly recommend Farthings.

We had a splendid two nights at Farthings this week. A sincere, warm welcome included a choice of rooms which were all good - beautifully appointed with good traditional furniture and comfortable beds. Food is excellent and the chef offers some novel choices using local and home-grown produce. The staff were always responsive and friendly but not intrusive. The only...

We returned again to Farthings for another brilliant break - we've stayed over many years now and have never been disappointed. The Farthings team is always pleasant and helpful, from booking to service. Our room was tastefully decorated.- the rooms are all individually styled and the food excellent. The chef uses local - and often home grown produce and the...
