We have an aged Golden Retriever called Paddy. He is a bit arthritic, hard of hearing (unless you are opening a packet of biscuits) and generally likes to lie down right in the way of where you need to be going!
All inside areas are definitely non smoking but we don't mind you fumigating the greenhouse or smoking under our lean to covered parking area (sand filled pots provided for used cigarettes).
We also prefer hot food (ie. takeaways) not to be taken into the bedrooms.

I am a mum of three beautiful (and a bit of a hand full) boys and am married to an even bigger one! We are very relaxed here in Godney. I love to read and catch up on movies. Most of our social activities are focused on our little family - fossil hunting is right at the top of the list. My boys are never happier when they can go out on the beach with their fossil hammers looking for big things! Occasionally we have a grown up evening out. One of our favourite places to go is Bath Spa - the open air roof top pool. A fab place to relax.

This means that checks are made on us to ensure standards are kept high and that we are properly insured, have regularly serviced fire alarm systems installed and that we offer a good hospitality service among many other things.
This year (2016) we have proudly opened our very own Tea Rooms - focusing on fabulous, tasty, proper home cooking. We serve breakfasts, light lunches, cream teas, afternoon teas and numerous cakes and treats. We have been practicing our barista skills and can make a mean cup of coffee. Of course there is always time for a good cup of tea - Dorset Teas are our supplier of choice and very popular they are too.
For those of you wanting to eat at our village pub 'The Sheppey', we are literally next door. Well known for good food and a quirky, eclectic way of doing things in their own unique style. Music is important to this pub and quite often they have live music on a Friday evening. We would always advise our guests to book in plenty of time to avoid disappointment, especially if booking to stay on a Friday/Saturday night.
Double-Gate Farm is centrally located in the middle of Somerset - ideal as a base for exploring the area:
Wells (Cathedral, Bishop's Palace, Penniless Porch, Vicar's Close).
Glastonbury (Abbey, Chalice Well, quirky shops).
Street (Clark's Village Factory Outlet shopping, Clarks Museum).
Cheddar (Gorge & Caves).
Wookey Hole (Caves).
Not to mention the numerous nature reserves on our doorstep - Westhay Nature Reserve, Avalon Marshes Reserves, Ham Wall Nature Reserve. THE places to be for those starling murmurations and Bitten spotting!
We try our utmost to help you get the most out of your stay here - whether it is one night or many and if you leave without sampling any of the cake in our Tea Rooms - you will kick yourselves!
Nothing is too much trouble.
We look forward to meeting you, the kettle's on!
