    It was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Overpriced. Dreadfully undertrained and inexperienced staff, and for all its quiet country location it was so noisy. No traffic - no noisy talking, just the quacking of 100s of ducks!! And the smell from nearly dry duck ponds was awful. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. They had a quaint idea of providing milk in a communal fridge down the corridor but not once during our stay did we ever find milk, or anyone to replenish the jug. One of my biggest disappointments, but I have to admit to just being really grumpy about the lack of service etc, was the fact that here we were, in beautiful Somerset, in summer, and all the flowers in the rooms and entrance areas were .... plastic. I couldn't believe it. Amazingly they quote rave reviews but I think they need to take a fresh look at themselves. No staff were around from about 8:15 p.m. tll after 7:00 a.m. At £80 per night this was very poor value for money.

    A loverly day beside the seaside

    A travel blog entry by julie.tennett on Jul 14, 2015

    We were woken early by the ducks and guinea fowl so we made an early start to have breakfast in Ilminster. This turned out to be a lovely little town the only downside was that there was nothing open and it was not until 9:00 o'clock that we found somewhere for coffee and breakfast. And even that wasn't simple. Opening hours said it was open at 9: …

    ... for a Disney movie. They were paying very well so everyone had to work around them. The challenge of having to pay to maintain these places must be huge. We also had a look at the Bishops Palace and the lovely cobblestone streets. It is hard to believe how important and powerful the church hierarchy were back in those days. We called in to Axbridge on the way home. It was another nice medieval village with SUCH narrow streets. It would be a ...

    ... then went to see where the mayflower stopped on its journey and the mayflower steps. Then we moved onto towards Buckland Abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake that he bought with money he earned from his voyages. On our way we went through some very small villages and rounds that I believe are only for horses and way to narrow for cars. It felt like we were driving for ...

    ... a direct walking route. We ended up doing a long walk in the flat to Brean down. Nigel had an Indian takeaway and I had sausage and chips. Nigel got up early on Saturday morning and fished with no luck :-(. We then caught a bus into Weston and came back via a shop in tescos and cooked. The weather was too windy to keep the new sun canopy up, however by the eve there was no wind at all. Tomorrow it's the 160 trip to Wales, ...

    Sad to leave Windrush Farm this morning after spending 2 days with Norma, but will be back at the end of the month. Yesterday, Sunday, had a traditional Sunday lunch at a country pile called Wyck Hill House, close to Burford. Roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. Delicious. One can't be good all the time, even ...
