Red Magazine :: February 2018

“Godney Arts House is a living, breathing gallery: walls are adorned with purchasable paintings, sculptures and posters (I dream-buy six pieces during our 48-hour stay). The decor is an eclectic mix of retro, industrial and Moroccan bazaar: a glass fronted sideboard in my bedroom is filled with vintage clocks, while a fan swings from the ceiling of another. On bright days, light beams across the small sun-trap garden, through the living room (where a white stone Pegasus protrudes from a wall) and into the generous family kitchen. There are two double en-suite rooms and an attic family room, which would make a happy den for escapee kids. For all its artsy finesse, though, Godney Arts House is supremely comfortable and an ideal base for exploring Somerset, Glastonbury is 3 miles and Wells a little further. When it’s time to leave for the city, reconnecting to real life comes with a jolt. No matter-I/m already plotting my return to glorious Godney for another lullaby-quiet weekend.”

The Times :: February 2019

“A super stylish 18th century Georgian farmhouse tucked away in the heart of Somerset, near the town of Wells, that has been lovingly restored by its owners, Jane Peck & Simon Ledson. Simon’s huge varied artwork lines the walls of the house and the three en suite bedrooms.”

Somerset Living :: March 2019

“Godney Arts House was bought 26 years ago when Godney was considered to be the back of beyond. Now people appreciate the unique location and comparative solitude and want to escape their busy lives and stay in this small village on the Somerset Levels.”
