About Mr Chris Weaver
We reside on the premises at Sticklinch Farm and have lived in Somerset for over 13 years. Our married daughter, Anna, lives nearby in Wells with our four grandchildren. We have two married sons - Andrew and Robert both qualified GPs. Chris and Jan have both recently retired. We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle in Somerset and have developed the 4 acre plot to accommodate our growing number of small farm animals. Our paddock extends at the rear up towards West Pennard Hill. Our flock of sheep are very friendly and will allow you to tickle their chins with a little help from some sheep nuts! We have Hampshire Downs sheep which this year produced 12 lambs between them! Also around the small holding are four pigmy goats. We have a variety of hens and ducks producing fresh eggs. You could also try goose eggs from our Pilgrim geese. We own a friendly Border Collie called Peter, who loves playing ball games with children ,and some gorgeous looking cats. We are very happy to show you around the small holding and chat about the good life!
Mr Chris Weaver purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Mr Chris Weaver chose Glastonbury
Having lived previously near London, we often talked about escaping to the country and in 2005 , we did it! Somerset is so laid back and friendly but we can still catch a train and get to London to enjoy concerts. Bristol and Bath are also cultural centers nearby.

Where else can you sit out in a hot tub under a clear sky and gaze at the stars without any light pollution !

Great place for a family or small group. Be aware the second bedroom is detached from the main house with a separate entrance (In case you have children using that room). The hosts are friendly and happy to give you a tour of the property, the animals, and suggestions for local restaurants and attractions. Very clean, and well appointed, especially the kitchen.
Heaven with a hot tub
Fantastic base to see the surronding area. Great to explore the area directly on your doorstep too. Hot tub was heavenly, especially good for my back after a days walking, 18 months since major back surgery and now complete with 2 titanium rods.Loved seeing the animals on the farm. Accomodation was great though TV channels not upto much, fortunately was there over the very hot Easter weekend so not in need of too much technology, though my boys may beg to differ as couldn't connect to wifi in the twin room.
Would definitely stay there again if back in the area
I visited with my two daughters (10 and 8 in age) who both love animals! My youngest loved playing with Peter the Border Collie every day (and would quite happily have brought him home!) and my eldest enjoyed sitting inside the bunny hutch cuddling the 3 fluffies! We all got to hold a lamb and loved the cheeky goats!
The property is well situated for visiting so many places; i didn't like to drag the girls away from the animals too much so opted to only visit a few places but now have many more on my list for another visit!
We used the hot tub twice, (not bad for early April!) and found it all hugely relaxing, with a lovely view! My Dad came down to join us for a night which Chris and Jan accommodated well, and didn't mind having to change sheets etc for only one night! We used the laundry machine too whilst there, and all in all felt a home-from-home atmosphere.
I had this place recommended to me and would not hesitate to recommend to others for some peace, quiet, walking, animals to play with and family time.
Thank you Chris and Jan!
Very clean and high standard accommodation, very welcoming hosts
We had a great stay. The set-up is perhaps slightly unusual as the two main bedrooms are accessed via separate doors - but it's very close, a baby monitor works between the downstairs bedroom and the upstairs living room. The hot tub was a real treat and our child loved meeting the animals. There's lots to do in the area.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Sticklinch and appreciated the animals. We have found that the ground floor accommodation with its own entrance works well for family groups, especially those with grandparents or teenagers, allowing them the freedom to come and go without disturbing others in the upstairs rooms!

A lovely clean cosy cottage . Peaceful with lovely views
The property is easy to find and is located on a quiet road. The house was warm and the beds were comfortable with electric blankets. We loved the hot tub , especially at night looking at the stars. The animals were an added bonus. Peter the dog is adorable. Would definitely return . Chris and Jan are wonderful hosts and kept great contact from booking
It was lovely to meet you and glad you enjoyed your stay here. You would be most welcome to return !

Very relaxing place to unwind
We stayed here over the New Year and really enjoyed the stay. The place has been really well designed and furnished, good sized rooms but still a cosy feel. It was well equipped, there was everything you need including a properly equipped kitchen instead of these 'show kitchens' that seem to often be found these days in holiday lets. A nice big sitting room upstairs with good views, a good bedroom with heated mattress although the heating was very good so that wasn't required. The bedroom blacks out completely with the blinds so it's very easy to have a good sleep. The hot tub was great, and the walk-in shower next to it very convenient. The owners were really friendly and the animals were good to watch, it's not everywhere that you can sit in a hot tub watching goats, rabbits, geese and ducks wondering around. Also really well located for Glastonbury, Wells and other various walks we had whilst here. We hope to return in the future.
We are really glad you enjoyed your New Year break here at Sticklinch and look forward to welcoming you back again next year!
