‘A Labour Of Love’

"Our Mission Is To Give Our Guests A Highly Comfortable, Relaxing and Unforgettable Stay, Making Them Want To Rush Back When They Leave!"

We are Joss and Sam Green-Armtyge, and as a mother and son team, in 2013 we took over ‘The Place To Stay’ at Knoll Hill Farm on the edge of the small Somerset village of Trudoxhill on the edge of the Mendip Hills.

The ex-farm, its buildings and its adjoining acres were in a sorry state, but we felt the old early 20th Century Farmhouse had loads of character and the adjacent barns had much potential.

Our Vision Was To Provide Really Superior Bed And Breakfast Accommodation Based On What We Would Want Ourselves

With Trudoxhill being very close to Longleat and Longleat Safari Park, and having many other lovely places also on our doorstep, such as Stourhead Gardens, Bath, Wells, Cheddar Gorge Caves and Wookey Hole, we felt 'The Place To Stay' would make a popular touring base.

Two years later, an extensive refurbishment of the rooms in the old farmhouse and renovation and conversion of the old barns into smart and distinctive living accommodation, and ‘The Place To Stay’ was moulded into a beautiful, boutique Guest House with 8 very stylish and individual rooms.

The Final Touches Followed

Landscaping of the gardens followed and along with the creation of  a lovely space for a collection of rare breed birds and our lovely Shetland Pony, Rosie, and her 'horsey' companions and all set in the open and wide Somerset Hills.

Sam & Joss Both Have Good Backgrounds

As a trained chef and having worked in the kitchens at the White Hart Inn, in Trudoxhill and at the highly prestigious Orchardleigh Golf and Country Club near Bath, Sam is now a highly accomplished Chef, guaranteeing you a great breakfast after your peaceful night's slumber.

Joss has a background in therapeutic work including working in the NHS and it was natural for her to start the Bodhi Tree, Massage and Therapy Centre within the ‘The Place To Stay’  -   a relaxing and rejuvenating service open to guests to compliment their stay and to local non guests, alike.

Now, 10 Years On ...

Now 10 years after we started, we are very pleased to welcome everyone, including families to our ‘Hidden Gem’ in the Somerset Countryside, where you can enjoy our superior bed and breakfast accommodation.

Guests can take advantage of the lovely rooms and gardens and a delicious meal in the 17th Century White Hart Inn, a short walk away, which we took over the running of 4 years ago.
