Holiday Rental House
The house consists of an imposing Victorian front addition to a 17th century farmhouse. The self catering apartment consists of the south facing Victorian front and the more rustic Cider Barn. The Victorian apartment retains most of the original features such as, high moulded ceilings, marble fireplaces and wooden floors. The Period furniture matches the Victorian features although a modern kitchen and facilities have been added. The Cider Barn incorporates part of the 17th century farmhouse and the original cider barn with exposed beams and slate floors. Outside is a new Scandinavian style Hot Tub and patio area, while the 4 acres of gardens have something for everyone, from the plantsman to children following the secret paths through the wood or dipping in the wildlife pond, there is al...The house consists of an imposing Victorian front addition to a 17th century farmhouse.

Whilst in a rural setting Model Farm is ideally situated to explore all of Somerset, only 8 minutes from the centre of Bridgwater, close to the coast, Quantock Hills, and the towns of Taunton, Glastonbury and Wells. There are many footpaths in the area that can be accessed from the farm, the Parrett Way passes nearby and the village of Cannington with its Church, walled garden, shops and pubs is a pleasant walk There are many gardens open to the public, Hestercombe, Cothay and Barrington to name a few. Visit the caves at Cheddar Gorge or Wookey Hole. The bird life on the levels is renowned, as are the potters and basket weavers. A visit to Somerset would not be complete without tasting the local wines and cidersMore

About the neighbourhood
Bridgwater will furnish your shopping and eating out requirements and has the Blake and Brick and Tile museums. It also hosts the world famous Bridgwater carnival around Guy Fawkes Night. Bridgwater is only a few minutes drive away or you may like to travel a little further to the county town of Taunton, a very interesting and historic town. Weston Super-Mare has all the usual seaside attractions with its newly rebuilt pier, aquarium and an annual sand sculpture festival.
How to get there
From M5 (J23 or J24) follow A38 into Bridgwater. Follow sign A39 Minehead ( ignore first sign to Wembdon). After leaving Bridgwater continue for approximately 1 mile, pass the Pace Garage on the right. Go down the hill and at the double bend turn right sign posted Wembdon. Turn immediately left sign posted Perry Green and Chilton Trinity. After approximately 3/4 mile you come to a T-junction, follow sign no through road. Model Farm is the second building on the left.
