Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast and Self-Catering breaks in England UK

If you are searching for a weekend break, a short break, a last minute break, a romantic break or a longer break in England UK, Longhill Farm has much to offer! 

Set on a non-working farm in the beautiful and peaceful Somerset countryside, Longhill is a grade two listed family home offering farmhouse bed & breakfast and self-catering breaks.  With the refurbishment of The Courtyard Suite in 2012, we can now offer guests the extra luxary of a suite of rooms overlooking a pretty courtyard seperate from the main farmhouse.  

We are surrounded by stunning views of open countryside across farmland and rolling green hills and our accommodation is a tranquil haven for those seeking a restful and relaxing stay.  Our extensive lawns, paddocks, picnic tables and croquet pitch to the front of the house allow guests to enjoy the countryside on their doorstep and also give access to local walking routes where an abundance of wildlife is found, including deer, badgers, kestrels and many other birds.

There is also no shortage of places to visit nearby for those seeking a more active break and the high quality of cuisine in our local Inns and restaurants offering delicious home-cooked and locally sourced county fayre will really enhance your break.

Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Ditcheat, Longhill nestles in the heart of rural Somerset within easy reach of Shepton Mallet, Bath, Wells and the Somerset Levels.  Bristol is just a 45 minutes drive away, Longleat about 30 minutes drive and the nearest mainline railway station is only two miles away at Castle Cary. 

As well as the countryside, there are a wealth of local attractions and activities that provide more than enough to fill your time during your stay with us, from the many varied year-round events at The Bath & West Showground to several National Trust Properties including the stunning house and gardens of Stourhead, Lytes Cary and Montacute House.  Cheddar Caves, Wookey Hole, Longleat and Haynes Motor Museum are all within an easy drive and the cities of Bath & Bristol with thier many historic attractions are very easily accessible.  Take a look at our Places to Visit page for more information and links to useful tourist websites and local restaurants.    

Ditcheat is small but well known, being home to the racing stables of Paul Nicholls (whose success stories include 'Denman' and 'Kauto Star') and local cheese makers, The Barber Family, who make delicious cheeses and export them worldwide.  (Foodies may also be interested in our other local cheese makers at Westcombe and Wyke Farm in Bruton).
