Lower Withial Farm
With an idyllic setting right in the heart of Somerset’s countryside, Lower Withial Farm is home to our collection of beautifully restored barns. With all the character you’d expect from a former working dairy farm, the site makes the perfect choice for those of you keen to while away a break in rural Somerset, and many of the properties have their very own bubbling hot tub.
Whether you opt for the impressive farmhouse (perfect for that group gathering), or one of the elegant barn conversions, Lower Withial Farm’s all about immersing yourself in country life and enjoying views across Somerset’s famous landscape. With the world-tamous town of Glastonbury nearby, and the kind of views that make you feel a world away from home, Lower Withial Farm’s perfect for those of you keen to experience rural Somerset in a beautiful home from home.
How about a hot tub?
With all those pathways to wander and so much countryside to explore, it’s lucky many of the proeprties in our Lower Withial Farm collection have their very own hot tub. So, you can while away evening after evening enjoying the bubbles under the stars, cool off with a dip on a summer’s afternoon, or just start your day in style with some time out and a chat while the water soothes those limbs. Just imagine catching up on the day’s adventures with a glass of champagne in the comfort of your very own bubbling hot tub…now that’s a rural retreat.
The games room
Lower Withial Farm’s all about spending time together and unwinding in style, and the games room right on site means there’s plenty to entertain all ages on those lazy days when you want to stay close to home. With a ping pong table, darts board and snooker table, this room’s the perfect place for the kids to enjoy time out…no matter what the weather decides to do. The TV and bean bags mean there’s plenty of opportunity to make new friends and catch up during their time on the farm too.
