Dating back to 1708, Pound Farm is a traditional Somerset farm house, situated on the edge of the sleepy village of Bishops Lydeard, not far from the county town of Taunton, and just a short drive from the beautiful Quantock Hills. You'll love your stay here, whether it's with friends, family or colleagues; with a heated indoor pool, sauna, hot tub and games room, Pound Farm has all you need to relax and soak up the blissful vibe of country living, in peaceful surroundings, with miles and miles of glorious countryside all around.
Within a working sheep farm, Pound Farm is a set within a walled garden, with a cluster of barns and outhouses made from the warm red sandstone that is typical of this part of Somerset. Right from the doorstep you can wander out to explore the picturesque surroundings; there's a lovely short walk along footpaths to the village where you'll find a convenience store, a paper shop, a butchers, Daisy Cottage Tea Rooms, and two pubs. On a summer's evening it's a pleasure to stroll to the Lethbridge Arms for a bite to eat, or to amble up the lane to Podshaver's Barn restaurant for a lazy Sunday lunch or an evening meal; both can be reached in less than ten minutes.
Pound Farm lies in the foothills of the beautiful Quantocks where you can explore on foot, by bike or if you book ahead with Quantock Trekking, on horseback. Pack yourselves a picnic and climb to the top of Cothelstone Hill to enjoy the panoramic views, or to Wills Neck, the highest point in the Quantocks. Shopaholics can head into Taunton or Wellington for their fill; both have some quirky independent shops, a cinema and a good choice of places to eat. For family fun go to Crealy Adventure Park or over to Wookey Hole in the Mendip Hills. Have a day out on the West Somerset Railway where you can catch a good old fashioned steam train to the seaside on the Somerset Coast; have a mooch about in Blue Anchor or Watchet, or make sandcastles on the beach at Minehead. Venture further afield for a day trip on the world famous Jurassic coast; visit Regency Sidmouth, the little fishing village of Beer, or the quaint town of Lyme Regis. Then go back to Pound Farm and gather together for a barbecue, relax in the hot tub or take a late night dip in the pool before climbing the stairs for a restful nights' sleep.
