Weekend Escapes

Say hello to Somerset’s newest eat-shop-wellness destination, located in a cluster of converted golden hamstone farm buildings just off the Southfields roundabout on the A303 near Ilminster.

Come for coffee and cake, or a lazy lunch in The Old Calf Shed cafe and its sunny terrace. On the menu: old faves and modern classics, including kedgeree and broccamole with poached eggs & smoked salmon, brunches, sandwiches, wood-fired sourdough pizzas, homemade cakes and pastries, including deliciousnesses from Baked at the Pastry Bench. Fabulous coffee, mocktails (grapefruit & lime mock-garita sounds yummy) and freshly squeezed juices. Private dining and external catering, too.

Take a class in the Yoga Barn. All kinds of hatha, restorative, lyengar, ashtanga or power yoga as well as pilates, tai-chi and fitness training. You must book ahead. See the timetable.

Treat yourself to a massage, facial and beauty treatment using skincare by Elemis, Opi and local brand MAKE in the Day Spa.

Book a counselling, acupuncture, physiotherapy session with one of the therapists in the Treatment Rooms.

Take a stroll around the pretty walled Cottage Garden, with plants, pots and gifts for sale and demos and workshops planned.
