The Fitzhead Inn was exactly what we needed for our stay near Taunton! The drive to Fitzhead beautifully sets the scene, and Fitzhead is the perfect English village that I always enjoy visiting. The owner made certain we were able to have a proper wood fire every evening, and that tap kept flowing making for a relaxing family get-together after dark. The Inn is typical old English, and full of charm and history. Each morning we took a stroll out in the village or on local footpaths through farmland. The village church is extraordinarily picturesque. As with all heritage buildings, you need to watch your head occasionally and learn to embrace it's quirks. Each room was well appointed. I would love to be back in summer to enjoy the courtyard and since I did not get to see the cellar, where the prisoners must be kept? I'll need to return! Thanks David!
The Dairy House met and far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect, far away from the maddening crowds, yet just a 5 min drive, or 20 walk into the village of Illminster. What a delightful path! The beautiful countryside surrounding us on all sides was wonderful to wake up to each morning with not a soul in sight, except for the peaceful sheep grazing the in fields. The house itself could not have been laid out in a more perfect plan. At one time there were 8 of us, yet it did not feel crowded with plenty of room for all of us to enjoy each other’s company, or to find a quiet space for a moment alone. We found ourselves lacking nothing…. there were plenty of bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, wonderful laundry room, garden area complete with a grill for outdoor cooking, and our favorite space, the conservatory where we had coffee each morning. I highly recommend this property for an ideal English country holiday.
