About Cherry Tree Farmhouse

Cherry Tree Farmhouse is a delight. The Grade II listed farmhouse, which was built in around 1600, has been sympathetically updated to retain its original welcoming character while offering 5-Star Gold accommodation. There is plenty of room for up to 10 people to sleep in five bedrooms, with space for one or two extra little ones, making it ideal for large or extended families or a group of friends on holiday together. The house is close to the Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and within walking distance (five-minutes!) of Halse village and the New Inn pub.

Somerset is the perfect spot for a relaxing family holiday. Whatever age your children are, they are never too old for the delights of a day at the beach. Younger ones will love poking around the rock pools and building castles in the sand, while older ones can learn to surf or paddleboard, satisfying their hard-earned appetite with steaming hot chips or ice cream made in a local dairy (or both!) The West Somerset Coast Path and South West Coast Footpath both provide a way to enjoy the beauty of the beaches for visitors who want to stay on dry land, and there are miles of cycling routes to make it easier to get from one breathtaking view to the next.

As well as limitless opportunities to ramble or mountain bike their way around the coast and countryside, visitors can play golf, ride a horse or take a 4WD safari across Exmoor. There is no need to limit yourself to ground level when you can take to the skies in a hot air balloon or go deep underground at places like Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge. Other local attractions include Dunster Castle, the West Somerset Railway, Haynes International Motor Museum (be sure to check their event calendar to see what's on before you go, as they regularly have extra demonstrations and displays), and Crealy Adventure Park. Bristol is also within easy reach both by car and rail, adding the potential for a city day into your seaside and country break.

Organising a holiday for a group of people - even if it's your family or closest friends - can be stressful. The luxurious accommodation at Cherry Tree Farmhouse coupled with a peaceful location close to beaches, market towns and other attractions, will ensure that you can relax from the moment your car rolls up until you leave.

Location (Somerset)

Accommodation Comprises:

Cherry Tree Farmhouse is a traditional Somerset Long House. The owners have done a fantastic job of making it supremely comfortable for modern guests while retaining its unique character. All of the fixtures and furnishings are of a very high standard and the house has received a coveted 5-Star Gold rating from Visit Britain.


  • Bright, welcoming sitting room with leather sofas providing comfortable seating for ten people to watch TV, play games, read or simply enjoy having time to catch up with their nearest and dearest. A tiled floor is a practical choice for children and pets, while central heating and a wood burner keep the room cosy in cold weather.
  • Separate dining room with a feature inglenook fireplace and large dining table with chairs for ten guests. Original beams, flagstone floors and window seats add to the country-cottage charm and make it a pleasant and practical space for meals.
  • Fitted kitchen with Shaker-style cabinets, plenty of bench space and a big range to help cook filling meals for a house full of hungry guests. The sunny space at the end of the kitchen is perfect for relaxed breakfasts or keeping an eye on younger children while cooking for adults.
  • Games room with glass French doors that open onto the patio and garden.
  • Utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
  • Shower room with a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.
  • Spacious bedroom with a king-size bed, as well as an ensuite with a shower, WC and handbasin.


  • Double bedroom with zip-link beds that can be either a super kingsized bed or two single beds. The room benefits from an ensuite with a bath, WC and handbasin, and has its own staircase for extra privacy, but can also be reached via the adjoining bedroom to create a lovely family suite.
  • Double bedroom with a zip-link bed that can be separated into two single beds. The room has an original feature fireplace, dressing table and bedside tables.
  • Cosy double room with a double bed and garden views.
  • Large bedroom with a super-kingsized zip-link bed (or two singles) plus an extra single bed.
  • Family bathroom with a bath, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The farmhouse has an enormous garden with a paved patio, outdoor hot tub, children's play area and flat lawn area that is ideal for football or other games. Guests can also have two private sessions per day in the indoor heated swimming pool. There is off-street parking close to the house.
