Where you'll be working - The Farmyard

The Farmyard is the newest addition to our Hotel offering at the estate. Housing a 17-bedroom hotel, with pool barn, games room, kitchen restaurant and bar. The food concept is rooted firmly in Somerset, but with influences from further afield, the kitchen at the farmyard will draw on the no frills, robust cookery found in provincial Italy and France; its identity driven by location and season, with ingredients fresh from our gardens or locally sourced, ensuring quality and seasonality throughout our offering. Cooking in our wood fired oven will be the focus of the menu. Open for breakfast through to dinner.
