About Mick Battye
Your hosts, Mick and Maddy, bought Boxbush Farmhouse in 1995 as a family home. All the children have now left home so we now share it with our cat Smokey, dog George, two horses and some chickens which keep us busy. We enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and never tire of the scenary.

Why Mick Battye chose East Pennard
We love a challenge and Boxbush Farm was just that. A Grade II listed building, which had not been lived in for 8 years, had no water or electricity and was in a poor state of repair. We did all the renovation ourselves (apart from the thatching) We have solar PV panels on the stable roof which produce electricity for us. One of the reasons for buying it was the view we get over the Somerset Levels, and we enjoyed living in such a peaceful location.
What makes this Barn unique
The network of footpaths and tracks make excellent walking of all standards including The Monarchs Way, the escape route of Charles II.

A lovely peaceful retreat to relax and forget about everything!
Ticked all the boxes as described. So peaceful. Mick and Maddy were delightful hosts and the surrounding areas so pretty. Accommodation was great. Shower was refreshing, bed was huge and the kitchen met all our needs for self catering. Nice little area outside for an evening or morning cuppa with a lovely welcome from the dog or cat. A truly relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of town life and work. Would highly recommend. Thankyou for having us.
Petite and perfect!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our short break at the Byre. The setting is peaceful and the hosts very accommodating and welcoming. The property lies within easy reach of local attractions. We mainly visited gardens and plant nurseries including the Piet Oudolf garden at Bruton and Hestercombe. We can also wholeheartedly recommend a trip to nearby Somerton. A small and quaint historic town with an incredible 13th century church. Just note that most of the shops don’t open until 9.30 or 10.00 am.
Lovely people lovely place!
