We live in a 450 year old farm house that we have extensively restored and refurbished over the past 15 years. Ford Farm Cottage is one of our outbuildings that we converted into a luxury holiday home approximately 9 years ago.

Had a wonderful 2 week stay in this delightful cottage, very comfortable and had everything you need. Tastefully decorated and loved the bathroom. Good location and welcoming hosts, loved the home made "Cream Tea" on arrival.

“A clean, comfortable cottage everything you need available,lovely welcoming on site owners”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage is a five minute drive from the cathedral city of Wells. Steeped in history ,you can spend hours wandering the ancient streets, there is plenty to see and do . The park and ride is a must. to enjoy a day in Bath, .We have rented this cottage for the third year and highly recommend it.



“Holidaying in Henton”

We needed a self catering hideaway for a week to allow some exploration of the Mendips and Wells - also we wanted to visit two National Trust properties at Barrington and Tyntesfield. Ford Farm Cottage provided an excellent base to do these visits and also a relaxing and very well appointed comfortable spot to relax.

“Idyllic cottage - fabulous owners!”

We have stayed at Form Farm Cottage twice - both tomes for two weeks at a time. Gary and Tina were so friendly and genuinely wanted our stay to be perfect, which it was until Andy was ill. Gary and Tina looks after us both so well and their cottage was so idyllic that we returned the following year.

“Lovely Cottage!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed 3 days at the cottage at Ford Farm. It is a lovely place, decorated and equipped to a very high standard. Tina the owner is friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of information about places to go and to eat. The location is ideal for exploring the area and we visited Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, Salisbury and Wedmore.
