View Room Information
This beautifully designed home with its stunning interior and wonderful countryside location, perches in understated grandeur within the verdant, rolling landscape of historic Somerton.

Offering a blissful blend of away-from-it-all escapism and luxury boutique lifestyle, an extraordinarily gorgeous interior awaits guests, where stunning furnishings and artistic flair are outdone only by the incredible views that impose on nearly every room in the house. With space to be together and room to be apart, there are cosy picture-windowed corners to steal away to, and lavish living spaces for lounging in, including a sumptuous sitting room with its ornate fireplace that adds not only a hint of opulence but also warmth and ambience during the colder months. A fabulous fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and seating cuts a contemporary figure of design simplicity where morning coffees are savoured and home cooking is more ‘sociable soiree’ than mundane chore.

Dining is a relaxed affair with guests gathering around the farmhouse table in the kitchen to share meals and conversation while large glass doors extend the entertainment area from the inside out. Spanning the length of the house, the furnished sandstone patio offers an uninterrupted perspective of the seemingly infinite rural landscape beyond and an elevated deck with bubbling hot tub at the far end tempts long delicious soaks at any time of the day or night.

With relaxation being at the forefront of the home’s design repertoire, guests can wander down to the unspoiled grass paddock with its shepherd hut at the far end of the garden to enjoy a G&T in the sunshine, and for rainy afternoons there’s a cinema snug complete with sink-in seating, a flatscreen tv and more of those exceptional countryside views.

Upstairs, three contemporary bedrooms offer beautifully styled light-filled spaces to retreat to for a late morning read or post-lunch nap, and when the sun sets and curtains are drawn, they become the cosiest of sanctuaries for a deeply refreshing night’s sleep.

Home to an attractive market square, Somerton’s pretty stone houses and independently owned shops and restaurants reside on wide, tree-lined streets weaving the old and new together in fabulous fashion. Within a short distance from the house, the town offers guests a selection of eating-out options as well as ample opportunity for filling travel bags with one-off items to take home. Slightly further afield but easily accessible, the 300 year old Newt estate in Somerset is, by its own admission ‘a place of wonderment’; with its exquisite acreage, on-site restaurant and beautiful limestone buildings making it an absolute must-visit destination while visiting the area.

More about Somerton

Beautifully restored by its current owners, Decoy Farm House is a stunning home nestled in glorious countryside. Every room has been designed to perfection, with interesting furnishings and exquisite original artwork from a collection of South West artists. I love stepping out on to the decking to take in the magnificent views before meandering down to the shepherds hut for a spot of quiet time.
