We spent a long weekend at Wood Advent, Arrived and was welcomed with a cup of tea and some cake on the patio after being shown to our room. Beautiful farmhouse and well kept grounds coupled with a lovely bit of September sunshine made for a lovely start to the break. Diana had already booked us a table at a local hostelry so no need to hunt around for somewhere to have a meal. The farm is down a single track lane that rises through the woods from Roadwater which poses no problems if driven carefully and with consideration that you may well meet other cars or walkers. Breakfast is superb with excellent service, lots of options depending on your needs. The cooked breakfast is just the start to the day I wanted. The dining room was well spaced out allowing free movement without getting close to others. The bedroom was well equipped and clean and particularly good to find all windows open, the bathroom was clean and well prepared and good to see, in the present climate, no toiletries. Although we did not use them, there are two comfortable lounges where you can relax and read one of the many books that are available both in the lounges and around the property. On returning from our days excursions we were again welcomed by Diana with tea and cake ( Diana's apple and sultana cake is heavenly ! ) A totally relaxing weekend and superbly looked after by the hosts, many thanks for everything, we will be back

What a find! I needed a room whilst attending the Watchet Music Festival as my band was playing on Saturday night...and I am too old for sleeping in a tent! Diana and her family have been running a B&B for over 40 years...and it shows. Nothing is too much trouble. After checking in, there was a lovely cafetiere of fresh coffee and cake waiting for me in one of the 2 reception rooms, very welcome after a long drive. The house (1840) is charming. It oozes a bygone age charm, with beautiful lawns and gardens. Highlights for me, sitting on the terrace, admiring the countryside, and enjoying the peace and quiet. There is a lovely outdoor heated pool, and various places to sit and read a book. Breakfast is nothing short of a feast! Everything is cooked fresh to order. Some lovely touches,real cotton napkins, butter cut from a bigger block, not those horrid mini packets. Endless fresh coffee or tea, served in a lovely dinning room. My room ( a very generous sized single) had a comfy double bed, and an en-suite bathroom, with a fantastic shower. Lots of fluffy towels, and the usual tea and coffee tray. Again another nice touch, a small fridge in the hall, containing small jugs of fresh milk, not those small pots of UHT! I was sad to leave, highly recommended.

We spent a week at wood advent farm and had the most amazing time. The hosts are incredibly friendly and welcoming, provided us with great suggestions for things to do, walking routes and maps. They cooked delicious breakfasts an amazing roast dinner on our first night and lovely cakes, tea and coffee whenever we arrived back off our long walks. Nothing was too much. The farm itself is fabulous, very comfortable bedroom and the drawing rooms were lovely places to sit and read. We would highly recommend wood advent farm for a relaxing break with amazing countryside views and will no doubt be returning!

The owners, Dianne and John, have worked the farm for over 40 years and have 500 acres of land with cows, sheep. They also produce maize and linseed, and have horses too. John, with a relative, manage the farming and Diane takes care of the house and converted granary which they hire out to large groups on self catering terms. Together they appear to work extremely hard at the business. I stayed in the farmhouse in the “Meadow Twin” room. PLUS POINTS * Secluded “farm feel” to house; * Lots of space; * Super large bedroom with bed to suit (see pic); * Plenty of hot water available and warm radiators if needed, but the bathroom tap positions in my quarters were reversed, so the ones marked “hot” poured cold water and the “cold” ones hot. Just something to be aware of; * Quiet at night; * Terraced front and back lawns; * Wildlife eg. Squirrels, pheasants, evident in garden especially during early evening; * Keen walkers will love the paths, some from the house, that traverse the English rolling countryside many with steep ascents / descents; * Protecting the planet, with things being kept as natural as possible, seem to be one of Diane and John’s top priorities. Their beef and lamb is produced organically; * Dinner and packed lunch available on request. MINUS POINTS * No promised cake on arrival; * Farm flies and other insects, (only to be expected), found on inside of bedroom window on arrival. Difficult to get rid of as they became trapped between the sash and the fixed window when the sash was opened. Keeping the window closed was the way to avoid; * WiFi reception patchy. Best place for it is in the front lounge; * Cellular signal reception patchy for EE customers; * Some chairs, and the settee in places, in front lounge are uncomfortable to sit on. Re-springing needed? OTHER POINTS * Apart from the booking communication is done mostly verbally, eg. Menus, which can lead to uncertainties; * Driving to / from the house from the A39 is a 2 mile journey along narrow winding lanes with a few passing places. Steep hill up with sharp bend in the middle greets drivers from Roadwater village achievable at less than 20mph using first gear only. Be careful to select the correct (narrow) turning from Roadwater; * Front door of farmhouse faces away from the driveway so, on arrival, it’s quite possible to mistakenly introduce yourself to the proprietors at the back door.

A delightfully tranquil farmhouse with clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfasts, cake and evening meals served by very warm and welcoming hosts. A lovely place to stop and breathe for a while. Will definitely return.
