“first class venue”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The accommodation is excellent, absolutely faultless, with wonderful facilities and many of us "Hens" are likely to return with their families in the future.

Agreed it was challenging to find along the narrow country lanes but well worth the effort since it's remoteness added to the charm. The rooms were extremely comfortable ,in fact those in the party who left husbands and young children at home enjoyed the best sleep in a long time!

The hot tub was a hit and the BBQ was a bonus. It was so well equipped that nothing extra was needed and we appreciated the many various fridges and freezer.

The wood burners in the living and dining rooms would make for a cosy winter break.

Thank you for your 5* review of Rock Farm. It was a pleasure to have you stay and we are glad that it met all your requirements. Rock Farm is tucked away a bit so pre-booking taxis is definitely a good idea but there are plenty of firms in Taunton that will come out to West Bagborough. We hope to see you back again in the future.

“The perfect getaway for a sophisticated hen weekend”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a fantastic hen weekend at Rock Farm. The location is stunning and the cottage is of very high quality with most bedrooms having en-suite facilities. It was great to have a dining table that could comfortably accommodate 13 people. We had a number of activities organised for the weekend including massage therapists coming to the house, clay pigeon shooting a short walk across the fields, cocktail making class at the house and our own chef came in on the Saturday night and cooked an exquisite 3 course dinner. We also had a butler in the buff serve our drinks! The quality and professionalism of all the activities was outstanding and i cannot recommended enough for you to try at least one activity during a stay at Rock Farm. Thanks for making my best friends hen weekend so memorable.
