A Farmhouse Kitchen with rooms, tucked away in rural Whitley near Melksham, 25 minutes from Bath. With eight contemporary individually decorated en suite double rooms split between the Inn & a beautifully converted barn. An old stone build farmhouse with rug strewn flagstones & reclaimed timber flooring, featuring worn wooden tables with mismatched furniture. The Pear Tree showcases the best local suppliers with a menu guided by the seasons. Beyond the flagstoned bar are two dining areas; the garden room, adjacent to a secluded courtyard; and a large open sunroom with exposed beams and adjacent garden terrace.
We buy our ingredients from local farmers and growers that we know personally and we don't buy out of season! Our menus change regularly to make the most of the fresh crop and local specialities with all of our meat being free range and traceable right back to the animal itself. All of our fish is caught in British waters with a 24 hour port-to-plate policy and our free range eggs come only from Happy Chickens. To top it off, we bake all of our bread, cakes and biscuits in our kitchen every day as well as producing our own seasonal jams, chutneys and ice creams.
Comfort and style sums up the eight contemporary bedrooms, all named after varieties of pears and split between the inn and a beautifully converted barn. For exposed beams, mullion windows and rural views, stay in the inn, otherwise choose the converted barn for upholstered easy chairs, striking statement pear motif wall coverings and fired earth tiled bathrooms.
Take a peek in the garden & see the changes we're making first hand. We've started with the veg beds... what other changes can you notice?
So far we've erected our upcycled Green house, installed 6 raised vegetable beds (and filled them too!) and on the Terrace you'll notice our herb boxes - all of which will serve the Kitchen day and night.
We love happy and confident people who can bring their own personality to the role. We want people who go above and beyond to create a unique experience. To go that extra mile to deliver an exceptional service. If you have a passion for this industry, we want to hear from you.
