Moorfields was built sometime in the 1750's on the ruins of an existing building, roughly the same time America gained its independence. Built in the traditional old ways, of blue lias, a local stone with a thatched roof.
Inglenook fireplaces complete with bread ovens, exposed wooden beams and some low ceilings all add to the cosiness of the cottage.
It was sold in the 1780's for the extortionate sum of two shillings!
In those days it was just a simple dwelling, doorways being wide enough to herd pigs through!
Moorfields is on the very edge of the largely unspoilt Somerset levels. You will be pleasantly surprised at how charming and welcoming people are here.
Through the years there have been many additions to the two roomed original building.
As one would expect, the doorways & ceilings are low. It may be worth noting if you are 6ft plus!
Your hosts are Roy and Debbie, we will be taking great pleasure in welcoming you, into our 'wonky' home. We hopefully will be able to give you a flavour of older properties (and their quirks) whilst offering our guests a comfortable, relaxing stay.
In between cooking and gardening, we make bespoke furniture from reclaimed wood, some of which is present in the rooms.
We have two dogs, German shepherds, which are incredibly friendly, but chances are, you won't see them.
We also have Dave, our geriatric cat of 17, who you might see wandering lost in the gardens!
Please contact us directly by phone or email to book or enquire about availability. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Moorfields B&B.
What our guests have to say about us….
"What a wonderful place to stay. A beautiful location and a beautiful property! The rooms were spotlessly clean and well thought out with everything you could possibly need. The breakfast was amazing using locally sourced products and the host did plenty of home cooking with biscuits, bread and malt loaf... yummy. The owners were wonderful, friendly, helpful, accomodating and knowledgeable about the local area. I would highly recommend. Looking forward to our next visit! Thank you for an amazing break."Gina Doig
"We recently stayed at your B&B from 12th June till the 16th June. From the offset you were very welcoming warm and friendly, we were made to feel like this was a home away from home. The breakfast were absolutely delicious the best part was you cater for everybody, we also loved the homemade bread. Your facilities were fantastic plenty of spaced for both of us, extremely clean. one thing we really enjoyed was sitting in the garden on those warm nights with a glass of wine just talking to yourself. We will be revisiting this B&B and will recommend it to anyone who is traveling down this way. There is nothing we can fault."John Whyte
"We very much enjoyed our stay at Moorfields (including a visit to Muchelney Abbey with its new presentation). The cheerful hosts have evidently sourced with an eye for detail and quality, so for example there was scrumptious home baking and the bed was very comfortable with exceptional pillows! All in all, a lovely Somerset country cottage stay."Bristol Visitor
"We felt incredibly blessed to find this place. It manages to combine the privacy and luxury of a 5 star hotel with all the best bits of an authentic bed and breakfast. We arrived in the morning greeted by Debbie & Roy who allowed us to check in despite being 4 hours early! Home made biscuits with fresh cafetière coffee greeted us … we stayed in a quiet sumptuous brand new refurbishment of a wing of this beautiful listed building. The place has been exquisitely restored entirely by the owners [warm friendly relaxed, there for anything you need but then you have total privacy] and every detail has been thought through. Egyptian cotton crisp white bedding, thickest pile carpets, fluffiest towels, luxury shampoos conditioners etc. Very very comfy bed. During our stay we ate lasagne with garden picked salad and fresh baked delicious home made bread and (the breakfast is as delicious as it looks on the photo all served in the homely dining room - you wouldn’t really need to eat for the rest of the day to be honest!!) You can buy Debbie’s homemade jams there too etc … Quiet garden to relax in. Loads of parking. Walking distance to Langport (charming town with many river walks, shops & restaurants). I can’t wait to go back as soon as we can. The place (and the price) is outstanding"Emma Rees
