We fell in love with the Roundhouse the moment we saw it on the website and the reality did not disappoint, the roundhouse is beautiful and unique in a relaxing picturesque setting. If you do want to venture out you are perfectly located to top attractions. Our children also adored the garden that accompanied the house.

We were after a few days rest, peace and quiet in a new environment and this is exactly what we got. Our thanks go to the owner and their family for creating such a unique spot in Somerset. Their attention to detail, their welcome and their generosity made the stay a memorable one. We look forward to coming back to The Roundhouse some day soon.

It's so lovely to be able to spend quality time with the person you love, not having any distractions. Working together to make food using the Rayburn was so wonderful and having fresh produce from the farm made it even more special. All the little extras that the owners added just really make your holiday. We will definitely be back again.

Somerset is a wonderful place to visit. The owners of The Roundhouse were so welcoming and helpful, but not intrusive. A wonderfully made house, the moment you step in you feel at home and you feel sad to depart. We will return to this special place.

We were able to wind down as soon as we arrived. The Roundhouse is truly an amazing building and had a personal feel to it! The location was perfect, felt like we were in the middle of nowhere but still had good access to local towns and villages.

The Roundhouse is a wonderful property - full of charm and character and abundant in comfort. We had a wonderful three nights there and could easily have stayed for longer. Cosy and warm, even in February. I'd recommend this rustic retreat to anyone year round.

We had an amazing experience on this organic farm. The hosts were really welcoming engaging and were always willing to stop and chat about their plans for the land, etc. It is a truly special place and we wish the owners every success with their future endeavours.

It had a friendly atmosphere combined with a warm and friendly welcome from the owners. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The house gave off a relaxing feel which helped us unwind and enjoy the sites which we went to. The farm animals helped you feel relaxed as well.

A beautiful, unique place to get away from it all but still close to civilisation if desired. Clean, warm, cosy and comfortable with fantastic hosts who added fantastic personal touches and were attentive when appropriate. Loved it. Just what we needed. Thank you

A unique experience, the Roundhouse felt like home right away, so carefully built, lots of attention to detail and a genuinely low impact holiday home. A perfect mix of simplicity and luxury. The farm is a great place to explore, and we slept like logs! We are already planning our next break there.
