What the Media Says

Parsonage Farm has been in the news as well as some recent publications. Here is what has been said:

The Guardian home

The Guardian,  Saturday 24-01-09, Travel Feature:
guardian screenshotThis eclectic farmhouse with a 'go slow' attitude to food and hospitality is the perfect antithesis of boutique B&Bs.

"Hooves clop past as I descend for breakfast at a long table beside a fire and Suki's mini shop-on-a-windowsill. This is piled with multi-coloured socks from Vermont, handcrafts from Malawi, and a few bits of her own pottery (there is more in her studio outside). How fab, I can combine the mutual pleasures of swigging organic home-pressed apple juice and a little light shopping...

... I’m totally relaxed in this place, it’s slightly hippy, eclectic and wonderful. It’s not for you if you want giant wet rooms and Frette linen, but what’s on offer here has made a more lasting impression on me."

Go Slow England, by Alastair Sawday:
“The delight in being here comes from many sources- the family, their house, the garden , their values, the sheer beauty of it all....”

Country Homes and Interiors, August 2008:
“Food is so fresh here, it practically walks off the plate...”

"Over Stowey was the real home of my heart ...The beauty of the waterfalls and streams, the deep red earth, the strong, wiry bracken, the lovely heather hills, the fragrant drenched woods, full of moss and ferns... We lay in a fold of the Quantocks under steep, red fields, the moor above us, and occasional white seagulls swooping over our bright earth."

~ Phyllis Bottome remembering her childhood in the Vicarage
