This elegant 18th-century country house is located amid the quiet of the Somerset countryside, yet within reach of the M5, just 5 mi from Taunton and Ilminster. Farthings overlooks the village green and enjoys 3 acres of private and peaceful gardens. With a wonderfully relaxing and informal atmosphere, it is the ideal place in which to unwind. Privately-owned, the family and its experienced staff invite guests to savor the warm hospitality and superb locally sourced food, cooked and presented in the AA Rosette-awarded restaurant. The restaurant has direct access to the gardens, where drinks and canapes can be enjoyed on a warm summer's evening. In winter, enjoy the comfort and warmth of log fires in the cozy lounge or bar. Each of the 12 rooms with attached bathroom is tastefully decorated and has all the facilities one would expect of a delightful country house hotel.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.
