About jeremy mulford

I am a business owner with family and a dog living in London, wanted to purchase a property in Somerset to have the ability of using and renting out as a holiday let.

jeremy mulford purchased this house in 2015

Why jeremy mulford chose Yeovil

I loved this property as it was in a quiet part of Somerset yet close to Yeovil and Sherborne. We had never been to Somerset until we purchased this place and found the people and the farming community to be the most hospitable people we had ever met.

What makes this house unique

We loved the cottage especially as all thatched cottages were darker yet this offered a much brighter house. Also the views, space, garden and paddock that came with it (now let out to a sheep farmer).

Great Country House - perfect for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find a warm farmhouse kitchen and all the creature comforts you take for granted at home. High quality throughout - from the TVs and Sonos sound system through to the fittings and finishings. Great location for visiting Somerset/Dorset - only 10 mins from Yeovil/Sherborne and 45mins to the coast (Chesil Beach or Lyme Regis). Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit the area.

Superior accommodations in beautiful setting--every amenity we needed, plus some!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because of its proximity to a family wedding venue. Just wish we could have spent more time enjoying the ambience of the house and its surroundings which exceeded all our expectations. We didn't have time for much cooking, but the kitchen is amazing, stocked with everything you might need. Grounds are beautiful; bedrooms very comfortable; lovely welcome basket of goodies upon our late-night arrival. Trevor and Christine, the property managers, were so easy to work with. This will be our first choice of accommodation next time we have plans in this part of the UK!!! Thank you to Jeremy and Sarah for your attention to every detail in the farmhouse that made our all-too-short stay memorable.

Stellar/Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

If one wants to stay at a house with total comfort in every room, with stunning views from every window, with two perfectly functioning fireplaces, a super equipped kitchen with an AGA stove, with Spotify providing any type of music one wishes to hear, TVs with numerous channels, quiet lane scenic walks just out the door, complete quiet, a classy farm shop a few meters up the road, outdoor BBQ & dining, red glow sunsets over picturesque haystacks nearby, long eyelashed cows in picturesque fields, etc., a fun pub around the corner,then this is the place to stay. We have rented over 20 differrent houses in the UK and France and this is the best one yet.

Beautiful property and gardens in tranquil settings.

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed the 10 day break, it was relaxing and felt like home from home.

The garden is secure and this is extremely important for us as dog owners.

Suprisingly fast internet access for a rural location which is also very important to us as business owners.

Would love to visit again if we get the chance.

Thank you.

Really impressive property. Full of charm and character. Rooms were large and well presented

  • 5 of 5

We went here for my mum's 70th birthday. We weren't disappointed as the cottage was an excellent choice. The bedrooms were all of a very good size, and even the downstairs room for my nephew was of ample size.

We were greeted by Trevor from the housekeeping company who gave us the guided tour, and we helped him assemble the new table tennis table in the games room, which we enjoyed along with some darts and a few beers over the weekend.

We made up the badminton net on the lawn, and the dog had the run of the grounds, which were really well maintained.

On the Friday night we had a BBQ and on Saturday we went out to the local pub - the half moon, for dinner and a pint of black rat cider!!

The local area was good for a walk around the country roads on the Saturday afternoon, and the icing on the cake was that we booked the same weekend as the Yeovilton air show, so got to enjoy the red arrows from the back garden!

All in all a really good weekend, and would recommend to anyone.
