Somerset Manor Farm, TA10
As its name suggests, Somerset Manor Farm is home to an impressive 16th century manor house, beautifully preserved and full of character. The interior rooms have been recently renovated in a classic and elegant ‘English Country’ style. Adjoining the house to the rear is the walled garden and an original small brick chapel amongst the shrubs and trees.
Once a working dairy farm, glimpses of its past unravel within the old farm courtyard where a collection of characterful barns with red tin roofs can be found, complete with their original flagstone floors and exposed timber frames. Near to the barns, in the meadow, lie a set of old traditional stables and hay store, providing further rustic backdrop opportunities.
