With period features throughout, a private hot tub, lots of space and wonderful countryside on your doorstep, this traditional stone built Somerset long house is the perfect setting for a gathering of family and friends.
Dating from about 1600 and grade two listed for its historical importance, Cherry Tree Farmhouse blends traditional original features with a contemporary country style, and luxury and comfort are at the forefront of everything. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms and plenty of space for relaxing and socialising, the farmhouse can comfortably accommodate 10 plus small children. And the location, on the edge of a conservation village with a lovely local pub, is superb. Get away from it all in the heart of rural Somerset.
This area offers a wide range of attractions for visitors, from views, beaches and wildlife to walks, riding trails and a cultural heritage spanning 5,000 years. Children will love Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, the West Somerset Railway and the various farms and zoos in the area. Adults will enjoy the wilderness of Exmoor Park, the magnificent Quantock Hills and Hestercombe Gardens, to name but a few attractions. And as Somerset is a county with sea, hills, moors, rivers and forests there is the opportunity to try any number of activities, from mountain biking, climbing and caving to golf, sailing, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting and fishing. There are lots of excellent pubs and restaurants in the vicinity – try the New Inn in Halse, The Globe in Milverton, the Carew Arms in Crowcombe, the Blueball Inn in Triscombe, the Rising Sun in West Bagborough, The Sanctuary in Taunton, Podshavers near Bishops Lydeard, and Clavelshay Barn in North Petherton.
Although seemingly remote, Halse is only 6 miles from the Somerset county town of Taunton and junction 25 of the M5.

Our aim is to make Cherry Tree Farmhouse (and the other properties on site) as eco-friendly as possible. We plant a native hardwood tree for every booking made, have tried to insulate the properties as much as possible, try to promote local businesses and provide much of the heating via a Biomass system fuelled by renewable wood chips. Satellite TV means that Cbeebies is never far away, and there is a collection of DVD’s for all ages. We can provide age graded baskets of toys for the children as well as cards and games for children and grown ups! Stair gates are fitted, sockets have safety guards and there is plastic crockery and cutlery in the kitchen. We can let you borrow an enormous amount of baby and child accessories so please just let us know what you require. We have teamed up with Gayla at Select Catering and are pleased to be able to offer a fabulous menu of both ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook delicious meals. On receipt of the balance for your holiday, we send a copy of the Select Catering Menu. The amount and quality of local farm shops and opportunities for buying local food is staggering! For the ultimate in relaxation why not indulge in a spot of pampering! One of the South West’s premier spas, Cedar Falls, is just two miles away. Or My Personal Sanctuary will come and do pampering and treatments in the comfort of the house!
