We’ve lived at Greenway Farm for 16 years now, gradually establishing a popular and successful restaurant business from scratch (albeit launching in the midst of a pandemic). The restaurant is the culmination of a lifelong dream that gives rein to our combined passions for creativity, hospitality and community, and we’re delighted that our children are also now involved – as well, of course, as Nigel and the Ubiquitous Ginger Cat!
It hasn’t always been easy – gaining the necessary consents and permissions took us seven years – but life has never been dull. Whether tending to the sheep, pigs and geese, welcoming new B & B and caravan guests, foraging for fresh produce or relaxing with a glass of something chilled at the end of a long day, we love our life at Greenway and hope to share it with as many people as we possibly can.
The refurbished barn that houses the main restaurant is full of character and warmth, with an eclectic décor that reflects both Greenway’s cider-making history and our personal love of vintage artefacts and industrial styling. The newly-added conservatory – with its huge, high table fashioned from Greenway’s original cider press – seats up to 20 people comfortably and has fabulous views out onto our patio, lawn and veg garden.
And thanks to the current need for social distancing, we now also have three dining pods where up to six people can enjoy a fun, informal and cosy dining experience without fear of wider contact.
If any of this tempts you to prolong your visit, we have a beautifully crafted, traditional style shepherd’s hut, with all mod cons and its own en-suite toilet and shower room. With the best views in the house – across a natural, wild life pond – you can enjoy magnificent sunrises whilst listening to the combined dawn chorus of pigs, sheep, horses, geese and birds!
We’re also a Certificated Location for The Caravan Club, and our location just off the A39 offers so much more than a simple stopover on the way to Cornwall. We have easy access to a vast range of local beauty spots – the country’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Quantock Hills, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s natural flood defences at Steart Marshes in Cannington and the magnificent Jurassic coastline at Kilve, to name a few – as well as picturesque country villages such as Cannington, Nether Stowey, Holford, Kilve and Dunster. Exmoor and Minehead are not far away, and the spectacular Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival in early November provides another excellent reason to visit.
