Hello, I'm Daisy!
So where to begin, I was born and grew up in Somerset but had moved away to live in Leeds in my early twenties. Buying a new house and changing career path wasn't even on my agenda but the house that I have loved since I was a little girl came up for sale and the rest as they say is history before I knew it I had sold my house in Leeds and moved myself and two cats back to Somerset. The house needed a lot of work and TLC, it hadn't been updated for a long time and the renovations took almost 14 months! Rewiring, new plumbing, knocking down walls and putting them back up you name it, we did it. Once the builders had shipped out the fun stuff began. It felt like I had unknowingly been in training to design the B&B for years, growing up we had been carted round car boot sales all around the South West, nipped in to charity shops, reclamation yards and flea markets at any opportunity. We had a great foundation of beautiful second hand things but enjoyed adding auction houses to our week to find some of the final touches. I live in the house on my own with my two cats and am a part time shepherdess helping my mum with her flock of 70 zwartble sheep (all of them have names) in Spring they can be seen from the B&B windows. I'm incredibly excited to see what my second season as a B&B landlady brings and can't wait to welcome new faces and old friends. Xx
A warm welcome awaits you at Mount Pleasant Farm, a boutique bed and breakfast (B&B) in Chapel Allerton, Somerset.
Our four en-suite rooms: The Copper Pear, The Curlew and Hare, The Daisy Room and The Swallows were lovingly renovated during 2016. Each room boasts a king size bed with quality linens, fluffy towels and oversized bathrobes. To make your stay even more enjoyable, we’ve added some luxurious extras – home baked goodies await you, and each room benefits from its own fridge with fresh milk and complimentary bottled water.
Scrumptious, traditional English breakfast, using locally sourced produce wherever possible, is served in our bright and airy breakfast room. During winter, the log burner will be roaring away keeping you nice and toasty. In summer, you are welcome to eat breakfast on the patio that leads straight out from the breakfast room to the front garden. If you wish to bring your own food or takeaway to enjoy in the evening, you are very welcome to do so and we will provide you with plates and cutlery. We aren’t licensed to sell alcohol, but please do feel free to bring your own bottle.
Mount Pleasant Farm is a detached Somerset longhouse, parts of which date back to the 16th century, set in an acre of semi-wild garden. We are located off a rural lane on the outskirts of Chapel Allerton, a pretty village in the heart of the Somerset countryside. The village is home to a beautiful 13th century church and a local pub, that’s just a few minutes walk from our B&B. We are also less than three miles from the picturesque village of Wedmore, home to some lovely shops, pubs and other eateries. You can find out more about the local area by seeing our places to explore page. We look forward to seeing you soon. If you have any questions after having a look around our site, please contact us for more information. Daisy and the two bed and breakfast cats.
