Farndon Thatch, Puckington, Ilminster, Somerset TA19 9JA
Centrally placed in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, Farndon Thatch, with its comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, provides the perfect place to stay when filming in the diverse and beautiful counties of the South West. This delightful stone thatched cottage dating from the late 15th century, with its beautiful garden and panoramic views from the Quantocks to the Mendips and Glastonbury Tor, is also available as a film location.

Although there are the inevitable later additions, the house still retains much of its original character and feel, with reed thatch, large fireplaces with woodburning stoves, and exposed beams on the ceilings and walls. The 2ft thick walls are built of the local Moolham stone (quarried in Ilminster) and contain ammonites and a variety of shells, displaying the watery past that the sea played in the history of the Somerset Levels over 6000 years ago.

The National Trust property of "Barrington Court" is in the neighbouring village and the historic houses of Montacute, Lytes Cary and Forde Abbey, together with the beautiful gardens of Hestercombe, Tintinhull and East Lambrook Manor are all just a short drive away.
