The French Kitchen philosophy comes from its founder Laurent Courtois. Born in the Loire Valley, France, Laurent’s love of food started at an early age with mealtimes and good food being an important part of every day life.
Laurent spent the first ten years of his professional career in his home country working in restaurants around the Loire area before moving to the 5* Meridien Hotel in Paris where he stayed for five years.
In 1998 Laurent came to England. Passionate about cooking, and with twenty years considerable experience, Laurent established The French Kitchen.
Bring the authentic taste of Thailand to your house party. Choose from a buffet style banquet or a fully served and cleared away seated banquet, with food prepared at the house.

Approach from a leafy lane, enter through the wrought iron gates to this wonderful big house to rent, set within 3 acres of sweeping lawns and packed with great facilities. Situated on the site of, but separate from, an old farm, Tatham House is a very high specification property, and provides a luxurious big house experience.
Enter the light, spacious hallway with its pale oak panelled staircase and discover the secret panelled door to the small library. Walk ahead, along the hallway, towards the stylish, high spec open-plan kitchen and dining room, with panoramic views of the gardens. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with plenty of fridges, freezers, wine cooler, range cooker and central island to mix and mingle around.
The dining area, is open-plan to the kitchen, providing a really sociable space for cooking and eating. With mood lighting and a large table for all guests to sit in comfort, it’s a great room for breakfast or to light the candles for a special dinner. A handy screen can be pulled between the rooms if you want a more intimate experience.
Leading from the dining area are two interconnecting living rooms for socialising and relaxing. They have high ceilings, period cornicing and a traditional fireplace, with elegant floor to ceiling French windows overlooking the side gardens. The snug, with comfy sofas, is ideal if you are looking for a moment of quiet time, or a cosy chat with friends during a group weekend break.
Bedrooms & en-suites
Climb the winding oak staircase to the light and airy first floor landing. There are eight large bedrooms accessed from this level and they all have spacious and luxurious en-suite shower/bathrooms. All the individually decorated bedrooms have flat screen televisions, stylish furnishing and top quality beds. (see the floor plan here)
There are two ground floor, en-suite bedrooms, one of which provides accommodation for guests with accessibility needs.
The lower ground floor of this big house is a fabulous, fun space, with table tennis, pool table, bar billiards and a cinema room. If you’re looking for a large holiday home for an inter-generational group, this area is a big hit with the youngsters.
Or, if the weather is good, open the bi-fold doors from the indoor swimming pool into the walled garden, to create an amazing social area, in the middle of all the action. The large terraces that wrap around the house, on the garden side, have plenty of seating for eating outside, enjoying a barbecue or relaxing on the sun loungers.
Pool, tennis court, hot tub & gardens
Tatham House is surrounded by 3 acres of beautiful, mainly level lawns and orchard looking over the surrounding countryside and Quantock hills. The all weather tennis court, hot tub and indoor pool are all in close proximity to each other, adjacent to the house.
