An extraordinary place to stay

Blackmoor Farm's dining room
Blackmoor farm, Somerset
Knight or day you are the one for me..!
We stayed here for two nights for Amy's wedding. Blackmoor Farm which offers guests bed and breakfast, is not far from Taunton in Somerset. The farmhouse dates back to the 16th century and the decor takes your breath away. The large room shown is where we all met for breakfast - surrounded by ancient artefacts - all the trappings of historic battles. There were even small cannons on the lawn outside.

 Our rooms were actually in what looked like converted barns nearby. Complete with a massive red Aga stove and enormous kitchen and sitting room with bedrooms off we thought it would be a lovely setting for a big family Christmas. The farm's cows are very close, you can hear them through the night, but they make a gentle, soothing noise which you quickly get used to. 

There seems to be something wrong with the comment box at the moment. It hasn't worked for over a week. Please test it for me...!

What an amazing place to stay and lovely that you can all go back there for another occasion and remind yourselves of previous great memories of the place. I am looking for somewhere remote for Christmas for just the two of us and it is proving quite hard to find. We both love Christmas(sorry to those who don't mention that word just yet) but this year we feel the need to spend it on our own rather than the usual racing around to either see everyone or cater for them! I will of course be buying them some gifts from HH before we go though!

Jenny, someone you may want to contact to feature some of their products is Homeward Bound Books - I was given one as a gift and I love it!
