Hartwood House is ideally situated in Crowcombe Heathfield near Taunton in Somerset, providing excellent access to the Quantock hills and the west Somerset railway. The hosts having entertained guests for twenty years they are experienced at looking after you and have a wide knowledge of Somerset to aid your enjoyment of the area.
Bedrooms are traditional, comfortable and spacious, all ensuite, good mattresses, fresh flowers and tea and coffee making facilities. Twin or Double rooms are available.
Our house exudes warmth and comfort. Our guests have a large sitting room, heated in season by a cosy woodburner, a sprawl of easy chairs and stacks of books and jigsaws plus a digital television.
The house nestles in a 8 acre woodland glade. Exceptionally quiet at night, only disturbed by owls or foxes. Red and roe deer are often seen in our fields and woodland. Birdsong fills the garden throughout the day.
We are enthusiastic amateur gardeners and have planted a wealth of trees, shrubs and perennials over the last 15 years - and in Somerset everything grows apace!
The garden at the bed and breakfast has much to interest the plantsman, as well as having many quiet sitting areas and space for children to play.
Breakfast at the B&B includes fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit, stewed fruit, various cereals (porridge in winter) home made marmalade and jams together with a variety of teas and coffee. Choose from bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomato, black pudding, eggs – or have it all to set you up for the day.
Where possible all ingredients are locally sourced. Home made cakes and biscuits are on offer at tea time.
This relatively unknown area of Somerset, designated the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1957, has much to recommend it. The Quantock Hills offer moor, woodland, farmland and winding streams, hill and dale, ideal for walking, cycling, riding and bird watching. The coast offers sandy beaches at Minehead and strata rocks for fossil hunting at Doniford.
