Breakfast Table at Fairways Bed and Breakfast Crewkerne Somerset TA18 8RN google

We understand that you may not wish to share a table with unfamiliar guests, so there are two individual tables in the guest sitting room. The breakfast tables are laid looking out of the French windows. If you look carefully through the windows you can see that the large borders are fenced off with chicken-wire. This is not because we have chickens, but because we are in the country with millions of wild rabbits who will undoubtedly eat all of the newly planted garden! Hopefully, all of this fencing will be taken down in a couple of years' time when the plants have matured a bit. From the breakfast table, you can watch the birds (and the rabbits) and plan your day. On a lovely summer morning, you might even have breakfast outside on the decking.
