About & Contact

Secluded comfort in a beautiful setting

At the end of a long gravel drive, The Garden House is very private with its own walled garden, originally the dairy yard. The sitting room, which opens onto the walled garden, has an open fire, laid ready for your arrival and a large smart TV. Through an opening at one end is the kitchen, with fridge/freezer, induction hob, combi-microwave and another oven, washer/drier and Miele dishwasher.

There are 3 double bedrooms with very comfortable king-size beds (can also be made up as twins) and a fourth bedroom with twin beds. The three bathrooms are finished with travertine marble tiles and have underfloor heating making them cosy in winter. Big fluffy bath towels and toiletries are supplied.

Lilycombe Farm has a fabulous indoor heated swimming pool, 15 metres long for proper exercise, but fun for children too. A simple booking system means that each of the three cottages can reserve private swimming time for their exclusive use. The projector lets you watch MTV or your DVDs while swimming. There is a Treatment Room for parties who have booked a bit of pampering.

The cinema has a large screen projector for which you can download your favourite movies from Netflix. There are toys and games for young children too, providing some staying-in entertainment if it rains.

The walled garden is a very private sun trap and a great place for a barbecue (provided). There is a teak table and chairs for dining al fresco.

Lilycombe Farm is in a lovely rural location within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can make circular walks, some involving pubs, through lovely country, straight from your door.

Wells, with Waitrose, Tesco and, more notably, a stunning cathedral, is ten minutes away. It has a farmers' market in the Market Place on Wednesdays. Bath, an international tourist destination best avoided on Saturdays, is 30 minutes. Somerset has lots to explore, so there is no excuse for being bored. Check for further details on our website.

Reviews for The Garden House at Lilycombe Farm

Meet the owner

Jane or Richard Clayton

The traditional stone farm buildings at Lilycombe Farm have been carefully restored by owners Jane and Richard Clayton, ensuring that their essential Mendip character has not been lost. Jane and Richard have an interior design business and their design skills are reflected in the quality of the interior furnishings within the properties. They live in the farmhouse, which is not far from the three cottages, but each property is private and self-contained.
