About Manor Scourfield
I was born in rural west Wales and Ann in Devon. We met in the London area when we were both teaching at Chingford. We married in 1975 and moved to Somerset as it was approx half way to both our family homes.We were both headteachers and retired in 2006 but we were not prepared to be idle so we purchased The Old House and resurrected the holiday cottages and added two B&B rooms as there were too many rooms for the two of us. We now have a thriving business and very popular with many guests returning for more.
Manor Scourfield purchased this House in 2007
Why Manor Scourfield chose Nether Stowey
The Old House has a great deal of historical links with the poets Coleridge and Wordsworth as well as others. They were credited with the founding of the Romantic Movement. Tom Poole who owned this house was Coleridge's benefactor and encouraged him to write his poetry.Despite only living in the village for about 3 years he did write some of his best work here. The Coleridge Suite is one of our B&B rooms which was the old library that all the poets enjoyed. It has an acre (2.5 ares) of walled garden which is such a bonus for peace and for plant growth.
What makes this House unique
Historical links are a great attraction and we have many academics visit. We also have our regular budding poets that want to enjoy the room and its atmosphere to gain inspiration from the ghosts of past poets. The walled garden is really a big attraction as there are so many different aspects to enjoy moving with the sun to gain another dimension.It is also well sheltered and good for plants and vegetables. The Old House is also very central to the village but you would never know it as it is so peaceful and relaxing. The big advantage is its position for touring and visiting local attractions. Great for walkers with such and abundance of local trails of all abilities as well as the start of the Coleridge Way walk.National Trust and Heritage attractions are within easy reach and too many to mention. Caves at Wookey and Cheddar. The North Somerset Jurassic coastline 4 miles away at Kilve for those fossil; hunters and Dunster Castle and village 30 mins away. Mountain biking is a secret with the bikers as they want it to themselves. Horse riding in the village and trekking on the Quantock Hills. There is so much to do that you wil;l need 2 weeks to make an impact.
