Bed and breakfast accommodation in South West England
‘Breakfasts as large as the welcome’ said one happy guest after a holiday at Highway Farm, a bed and breakfast in rural Dorset, which I think sums up what you can expect from your stay at one of Cartwheel’s farmhouse B&Bs in the West Country. Imagine waking up in your cosy bed, looking out over the glorious countryside of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset or Dorset, then tucking in to a hearty Aga-cooked full English breakfast made with the freshest homemade or locally sourced ingredients.
Staying at a farmhouse B&B means that not only will you be in a beautiful rural location, but a lot of the ingredients for your breakfast are from the farm itself or one of its neighbours. You could indulge in fresh free range eggs collected that morning, sausages made from the farm’s own free range pigs, home-grown tomatoes, bread, jam or marmalade made by your hosts, honey from their own bees, or locally smoked fish... wherever you stay, you’ll be in for a foodie treat.
Ideal for weekend breaks or getting away for a longer holiday, farmhouse bed and breakfasts make a great base for discovering the South West countryside and coast. Your B&B hosts will make sure you have comfortable accommodation and a hearty breakfast to set you up for a day for exploring.
Your hosts are locals too, so they have a wealth of knowledge to help you get the most out of your holiday. They’ll be able to recommend the best places to eat, delightful walks and hidden gems to visit, so you can tailor your holiday to the things you love to do. And with traditional country pubs just a short walk away, you’ll get to experience real village life and country hospitality - just remember your torch for the walk home in the evening!
There is plenty to do on farm holiday. Children in particular love to watch cows being milked, meeting calves, piglets and lambs, and getting out in the fresh air on woodland walks and nature trails. And with beaches, cycle trails and even fishing lakes nearby, there will always be lots of keep children occupied.
