What a fantastic place to stay. Out in the countryside, but easily found by road, a no hustle and bustle stop off in totally peaceful surroundings. Jeff and Sarah are two of the nicest hosts I have had the pleasure to meet on my travels. Nothing was too much trouble for them. My travelling companion is disabled and finds sleeping laying down difficult but they even managed to find him an adjustable chair which meant that he too could have a good nights' sleep. One morning as we sat down to breakfast, Jeff said hang on, then reappeared a couple of minutes later with eggs he had just collected from the chickens, you cant get fresher than that!! Tea and a huge slice of home made yummy fruit cake was offered as we arrived but all food was fantastic and plentiful. Lunch/Dinner can be arranged if required, but on this occasion we were out and about too often to take advantage of it. Our room was incredible. Everything was newly installed and beautifully clean. TV, tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and toiletries come as standard but are all of high quality.
Glastonbury with all it's charm is not far away and the Tor can be seen from the farm. The farm itself is fairly central for visiting places like Taunton, Bath, Wells, Cheddar and Wookey. If you are visiting Glastonbury I would strongly recommend a trip to The George and Pilgrim just to soak up the immense history of the place. A nearby pub is within walking distance of the farm but was a disappointment as it only opened on certain days of the week, but we will explore that on our next visit in November. There is plenty of parking near to your room and everyone has their own lockable front door so there is no need to disturb other visitors, all in all, I cant recommend Willowbridge Farm highly enough and look forward to many return visits.
