Old Farm Traditional Farm Cottages
Elke B: Aug 18 Thank you for an amazing stay. Everything about it was great, the house, the dogs Tori and Ivy, the bees, the horse and donkey, the beautiful yoga spots and energy, the views, the Tor and your hospitality and great conversations.  Rachel A: July 18 This is one of the best places we've stayed in, as you drive in and see Old Farm and the Cider House you just know that you've fallen on your feet. It's well off the main road down a quiet lane with wonderful views of both the Glastonbury Tor and the ancient city of Wells. The house is very attractive inside, it's clean, cosy and has a good feel to it. The beds are extremely comfortable with good linen and feather pillows. The view is of the main house which is very beautiful thanks to Richard's careful restoration with local craftsmen. There's plenty of space outside to eat and read. We liked Richard enormously, he's extremely helpful and relaxed and I'd like to thank him for everything he did for us. Claudine M: June 18 Our whole family loved our stay. The cottage was gorgeous as were the surroundings. So much to see and do in and around with the cider house as a fantastic base. Clean and beautifully renovated and kept, couldn’t have asked for more from our accommodation. Great walk up to the Tor from here too which we enjoyed the view of from the cottage. Richard the owner was helpful too. All in all would very much recommend! Mary F: May 18 We, five adults, spent a lovely long weekend in Cider House. The communication beforehand with Richard was very uncomplicated and he was very forthcoming. The house itself was clean and warm, both bedrooms very spacious and the bathroom a generous size. The kitchen was well equipped. We also thoroughly enjoyed meeting Arthur the donkey and his pony friend as well as the dogs who paid us a visit us each morning:) There are lovely views of Glastonbury Tor from the house. Thank you Richard for a lovely time. We would definitely recommend this property. John R: May 18 We all had a lovely time staying at Cider House in the beautiful Somerset countryside. Richard was wonderful with our children and took time out to show them Arthur the donkey, Laddie the Shetland pony and of course Tori the dog who captivated the children and had them shrieking with delight. Richard also showed them the bees and his knowledge of bee keeping was a real education to us all. We thoroughly recommend Cider House - cosy with incredibly comfortable beds- it's a great base for exploring Somerset. It's not far from the coast, Bath, Wells and Glastonbury itself is just a few miles away with its eclectic shops and hippy vibe it's well worth a visit. We hope to return again very soon. Anna B: May 18 My husband, myself and our 3 boys had a lovely long weekend in the Cider House. The weather was fantastic and we had some great days out. Would love to stay again in the future. We met Richard and his lovely flatcoat retriever who made us feel very welcome. Ben N:  April 18 Great place, we had a fantastic Easter break, Richard is a lovely host. We hope to return. Kayleigh: Dec 17/Jan 18 Lovely size, Richard being helpful and contactable host. Beautiful views and nice countryside walk to the Tor. Bed comfortable but might be worth noting duvets / pillows are feather (for those with allergies of any degree). Log fire was perfect size and heating system also warms the place well. Plenty of parking and local pub walking distance with reasonable menu. Thank you for putting the little tree up for us too Richard. Pamela, Oct 17 Richard is an absolutely awesome host and I am not just saying that because of his gorgeous apple juice from his own trees! We fell in love with his place and would have stayed there much longer if we had the time. He has worked so hard to make it just right. So relaxing, so peaceful! The Cider House cottage we stayed in is bright and comfortable, well equipped kitchen, comfortable couches with a lot of thoughtful touches including DVDs. Good beds! He also has the sweetest dog - Tory. The view of the Tor is gorgeous and it's right there! We had a stunning walk one afternoon up to it through the fields and lanes. The deep, yet energizing peace of the place enters your body fields and we felt so refreshed after staying there. Highly recommend and would absolutely stay there again! Aubrey, Sept 17 My parents and my husband and I stayed in Richard's Cider House Farm recently and had an absolutely unforgettable experience. When we first arrived, we were so pleased that it was even more stunning than the pictures showed. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was great, and the location couldn't be beat. We enjoyed walks in the countryside, close proximity to a pub, a short drive into town for restaurants and sites, visiting with Richard and meeting the darling donkey and pony there,(Arthur and Naughty Laddie Aimee, Aug 17 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were exceptionally comfortable and felt completely relaxed. This is a perfect getaway for those in need of peace and tranquillity. Add in a most genial host (Richard) and it's a recipe for total r and r. We will definitely return. Thank you. ps We love Tori! Jeanne, Apr 17 Had an amazing time. So easy to book the week which gives you a hint of how relaxing the stay will be. We loved every moment. Fantastic location, 10 mins from Glastonbury. Great day trip. Beautiful view of the TOR from the bedroom. Richard is an amazing host. The house is so cozy and comfortable. We felt at home from the moment we arrived.
