Gibs's Room.jpg
Polly & Barnaby's Room.jpg

Grab a wonderful night's sleep in Gibs's gorgeous en-suite. Located on the first floor, it is a restful and peaceful room overlooking our courtyard, garden and fields beyond with their great walking territory. If we have a favourite room, this is it but to be honest all our rooms are lovely. Gibs's has an ensuite shower, TV, wardrobe, Nespresso coffee machine, USB ports, kettle, mini fridge and more. There's also space to sit and work on your laptop. It is large enough to fit a cot or camp bed for children. We provide ironing and washing service on request. We ask all our guests to regard our house as a home from home so if there is anything you don't see or need while you are with us, just ask.

All our rooms are named after our children and this one on the top floor refers to our eldest's and his lovely wife. These days they have a baby daughter too so it should be P&B and Matilda's room. Like every room in the house, it has all mod cons such as USB ports, a cute fridge containing fresh milk as well as soya milk sachets, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer, dressing gowns, TV, hot water bottles and more. The bed is a comfortable, French-style double with a corona at the top. As with every room, there are quirky decorative details including a chair which belonged to one of our grandparents and is upholstered with a tapestry created by Melanie's stepfather.

Be spoilt by the view from this room and the giant bed. It's so large that sometimes adults have slept with one or two small children squirrelled in between them. Named after our daughter it was once Melanie's office where she he spent more time gazing out of the window to the garden and fields beyond than putting pen to paper. Like every room, the decoration is individual and stylish: there's an old crocodile handbag, Romanian 1950s bowls, German felt pictures from Melanie's childhood and a cigar and cigarette box which masquerades as a tea and coffee dispenser.  There is a mini fridge, kettle, TV and hairdryer plus complimentary biscuits, dressing gowns and more. 

Jasper's Twin

Named after our youngest son Jasper, this is a lovely, spacious twin on the top floor overlooking Glastonbury Tor. As with every room paints are by Farrow & Ball. However, this also has some stunning Farrow & Ball wallpaper as a feature on one wall. Vinyls from our large collection of records decorate one end and an old wind-up gramophone which still can play 78s is on the other side. On the room's desk, there's a vintage typewriter which was once a tool for Melanie's writing. Otherwise the room is full of mod cons. There's a Nespresso coffee machine, wardrobe containing dressing gowns, extra blankets and a hair dryer, USB ports, a mini fridge, kettle, complimentary biscuits, TV and more. 

Please note that out of our four rooms, we rent three only at any one time. This is to make sure everybody has an individual bathroom and a choice of bedrooms between double and twin.
