We, The Chambers Family, Pippa, David and Pete, moved to Pennard Hill Farm from Suffolk in July 2009. As soon as we drove down the long tree lined drive, we instantly fell in love with the place. We live in a very rural part of Somerset with 80 acres of grassland overlooking the Glastonbury Festival site. We are just a few miles from the town of Glastonbury itself, Wells, England’s smallest city and Castle Cary.
Pippa handles the day to day running of the weddings, cottages and glamping, while father, David continues to concentrate on managing his farm in Newmarket remotely. Pete has moved to Malta but pops back from time to time.
In 2020 Pippa met her husband Tom, a chef from Exmoor, and not surprisingly (!), the business began to take on more of a focus around food! Pennard Hill Kitchen was born and Tom now handles all the catering for the weddings and the Festival. In 2023 Pippa and Tom got married here on the farm and enjoyed a three day celebration with closest family and friends. This year will also see the creation of our indoor wedding ceremony space, feasting room and commercial kitchen.
Pennard Hill Farm has a unique sense of calm and tranquility and incredible views over the Mendips. We absolutely love it here and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!
