North Wheddon Farm
'Blyton-esque bliss' is promised here says Alastair. 'This is a classic Somerset farmyard, crackling with geese and hens, around which is the gentleman farmer's house. Bedrooms are airy and calming, with grand views and neat-as-a-pin bathrooms. Bring children and they will be in heaven, with eggs to collect and pigs to pat.'
