About Sarah Mulford
I am a business owner with family and a dog living in London, wanted to purchase a property in Somerset to have the ability of using and renting out as a holiday let.
Sarah Mulford purchased this Farmhouse in 2015
Why Sarah Mulford chose Yeovil
I loved this property as it was in a quiet part of Somerset yet close to Yeovil and Sherborne. We had never been to Somerset until we purchased this place and found the people and the farming community to be the most hospitable people we had ever met.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We loved the cottage especially as all thatched cottages were darker yet this offered a much brighter house. Also the views, space, garden and paddock that came with it (now let out to a sheep farmer).

Charming Country Escape
Beautiful house and countryside. Convenient location for day trips. Really pleasant stay. Thanks!
We stayed here with young children and it was really lovely, we would highly recommend it. The house is well-set up for kids, with a large garden and lots to see locally.
Lovely cottage, great size, excellent features
We were 6 adults and 1 dog staying for 4 nights in this lovely, well maintained and modernised cottage that still has plenty of charm. Location is quiet and the surroundings are lovely (fields, sheep, paths to walk).
The house has been lovingly refurbished without removing too much of the original features which means access to two excellent working fireplaces.
The lounge comfortably seats 6 or more and each bedroom is a good size. Both the ensuite bathroom and main bathroom are great.
The kitchen is large with plenty of room for the whole family to gather whilst cooking around the Aga (an standard oven is also available).
The garden is a great size and would be fantastic for summer time.
Internet connectivity was a touch spotty during our stay but this is not the fault of the owners or the technology they have installed (which is high quality and well up for great coverage throughout the house), this was BT’s issue during the weekend. Add to this the Sonos system controlled by the iPad in the kitchen (or from your phone if you already have your own setup at home), the multiple smart TVs and the ping pong table in the garage and you’re set for just about every eventuality.
10/10 on this place would not only stay again but would probably buy it too.
perfect for a Family Christmas
absolutely stunning property the perfect place to spend Christmas with our family. Not a single complaint A1 Farmhouse
Great Country House - perfect for a family getaway
Arrived to find a warm farmhouse kitchen and all the creature comforts you take for granted at home. High quality throughout - from the TVs and Sonos sound system through to the fittings and finishings. Great location for visiting Somerset/Dorset - only 10 mins from Yeovil/Sherborne and 45mins to the coast (Chesil Beach or Lyme Regis). Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit the area.
Superior accommodations in beautiful setting--every amenity we needed, plus some!
We chose this property because of its proximity to a family wedding venue. Just wish we could have spent more time enjoying the ambience of the house and its surroundings which exceeded all our expectations. We didn't have time for much cooking, but the kitchen is amazing, stocked with everything you might need. Grounds are beautiful; bedrooms very comfortable; lovely welcome basket of goodies upon our late-night arrival. Trevor and Christine, the property managers, were so easy to work with. This will be our first choice of accommodation next time we have plans in this part of the UK!!! Thank you to Jeremy and Sarah for your attention to every detail in the farmhouse that made our all-too-short stay memorable.
