For Corporate Jaunts Try Somerset
Now it’s the season of corporate jaunts, why not Somerset? Instead of airports, being crammed into aluminium tubes and queues for car hire, you can toddle down the A303 or A30, or take a two hour and a half hour train ride from Waterloo to Yeovil, and be in a brand new room with a floor to ceiling window looking over, arguably, the best view in England.
www.farmyardretreat.co.uk takes parties of up to 30. The accommodation is very modern and stylish and high-tech with WiFi, iPod docks etc. The sheets are Egyptian cotton. The apartments are on two floors. It opened in May after being purpose-built.
In front of the apartments is a lake for fishing and beyond that a clay pigeon shooting range. Both are for residents.
