The Golden Fleece
The Golden Fleece
Lounge about atop a comfortably cushioned sofa in the sun room, tramp the local lands with your four-legged friend in tow, or cook some comforting fare using the quaint duck-egg blue AGA. A Victorian house positioned perfectly on a working farm, The Golden Fleece is a homely hideaway large enough to accommodate eight adults.
Stylish and spacious with traditional quirks and a master bedroom that boasts inspiring views over the Mendip Hills, the Golden Fleece is the ideal escape for those seeking a sumptuous Somerset experience. Pack a picnic and head for the hills, be called to the coast and its salty air, or head down into the infamous epicentre of quirky charm, the town of Glastonbury.
An ambient open fire and deliciously deep cushioned sofas await in the sitting room, whilst a traditional country kitchen offers all you need for delightful dining. Four guest bedrooms ensure endless sleeping space, with two twin room options and one based downstairs.
Your own private garden is a haven for soaking up the sun or allowing any hounds to have a safe sniff about, but the real perks are the awe-inspiring views and glorious greenery that surrounds you.
Located in an idyllic spot in the carefree county of Somerset, The Golden Fleece sits on Pennard Hill Farm, a working sheep farm with unbeatable views of its scenic surroundings and the Mendip Hills. Get to know the quirks of Glastonbury and its many myths, visit the small city of Wells with its stunning cathedral, or escape to the coast in search of flavoursome fish and chips.
Perfectly placed for a day trip to Bath, you could also explore the Cranborne Chase AONB (Area of Natural Beauty) or even head down into Dorset to discover the Jurassic Coast.
As far as eateries go, the traditional market town of Shepton Mallet is a mere few miles away and is bursting with flavoursome fare. The Natterjack, Blostin’s and Poachers Pocket all receive rave reviews, but if you’re looking for somewhere within easy walking distance, The Red Lion in West Pennard is only an amble away along characterful country lanes, serving a selection of gastro dishes and pub classics.
Also conveniently close by, the Avalon Vineyard produces organic wines and ciders, inviting keen sommeliers and occasional drinkers alike for tours and tastings.
