Double-Gate Farm Information


Double-Gate Farm is ideal for exploring the South West, in a pleasant position on the Somerset Levels by the River Sheppey with views across open countryside to the Mendip Hills. After a comfortable nights sleep begin your day with one of our scrumptious breakfasts in our Garden Dining Room that has lovely views of the garden, house and meadows. Our menu has a lot to choose from: traditional farmhouse breakfast, pancakes, smoked kippers - all in all there are a dozen different breakfasts to suit most dietary requirements plus a breakfast bar. In winter we run a "Winter Warmer" special: breakfast by candlelight, when the starter menu also includes creamy porridge. Our licensed Tea Rooms are run from here - delicious home baked goodies and beverages. *NEW* for 2021 is our BBQ Hut. The BBQ Hut will also be available to private hire in the evening for guests staying at Double-Gate Farm - it would be a memorable experience for you. All ground floor areas in the Farmhouse are accessible by wheelchair and the Master en-suite is on the first floor. Our Riverside Rooms are all ground floor and extra large with patio facing south over the river, ceiling fans, refrigeration and super big wet rooms. Cosy for couples, adaptable for accessibility and spacious & flexible for families and groups. Additional cottage style en-suite rooms are based in Swallow Barn: cosy doubles and a ground floor twin. For B&B, Swallow Barn is no longer inspected by Visit England Assessment Services although our other B&B accommodation remains in the scheme. It is still inspected by the AA for B&B and Self-Catering purposes so you can rest assured that it still remains at a high standard. If you are looking to holiday with your dog, please call prior to booking to ensure our dog friendly rooms are available. We only have 2 of these rooms. If you book a pet free room without asking, your dog will not be permitted to stay.
