At the heart of the West Country, Somerset is a destination of dramatic coastline, seaside resorts, epic English countryside, and historic places. Described by the ancient Welsh Celts and the Saxons as the Land of the Summer People, Somerset is a county of captivating contrasts.

Its coast takes in long sweeping sandy beaches, seaside resorts, harbours and marinas, and the dramatic Exmoor coastline. Venture inland to an epic countryside of protected landscapes, rolling hills, wild moorlands, ancient woodlands and wetland habitats, dotted with historic towns and villages.

At the heart of what makes Somerset tick is its's distinctive culture and history that includes willow and cider making, great local food and drink, the legends of Kings Arthur and Alfred and much more.

Somerset born and bred, from a farming family, I have lived in Somerset all my life, and been in the hospitality industry for 33 years. I began taking guests into my home in 1987 offering Bed and Breakfast accommodation, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Due to having to care for elderly parents, in 2015 I adapted my business to self catering only which gave me more flexibility, converting part of the farmhouse into a cottage (Dairy Cottage), and building two new apartments in the grounds (Garden Suite 1 and Garden Suite 2) My grown up children lived in two apartments in a converted stone barn, but have now both flown to pastures new, so I now welcome AirBnB guests to both Swallows Nest and The Stables.
