We decided to take a rest day and walk around the historic
sights of Taunton. There are certainly some very interesting old
buildings in town, and some beautiful gardens as well. We visited
Taunton Castle which houses the Somerset Museum and took a stroll
through the centre of the town. Many churches and quaint …
We are still based at Brookfield House and really enjoying our stay here.
Today, as it is the solstice and there are large gatherings at Stonehenge, we thought we would travel in a different direction as we have been reliably informed that traffic around the Henge will be fraught! Consequently we have decided to go in search …

TravelPod Member ReviewsBrookfield House Taunton
Loved this place! Jill and Ian welcomed us warmly and provided excellent service. The decor reflected the period in which the house was built; creams and white with rich gold and maroon highlights: gracious living. A touch of class with comfort and mod cons included for good measure. Delicious food prepared by the lady of the house, with thought given to special dietary requirements as well.
