Set in its own private, landscaped grounds, the barn has 6 beautifully appointed en-suite super-king double or twin bedrooms (all have zip and link beds so can be super-king doubles or twins.), a private indoor heated swimming pool, a sunken hot tub, 3 lounges, a games room with pool table and table football, a stunning, fully-equipped oak kitchen and a dining and entertaining room where guests can dine under the stars courtesy of our huge skylights. The Barn is fitted with TVs, Sky(full package), DVD player, WiFi and an iPod docking station. All linen, towels and dressing gowns are provided. We also have cots, toddler beds and high chairs. A selection of games can be found in the cupboard.
Outside, in the child friendly garden, children can explore the wooden play equipment, slide and trampoline whilst the adults enjoy drinks and food around the table on the large patio area, cook at the barbecue or relax on the loungers.
The Barn is 6 minutes off the motorway and is 30 minutes to the coasts. The village shops are a 4 minute drive or 10 minute walk.
Locally, there are great pubs, wonderful walks and fun visitor attractions, so there's plenty to keep everyone happy. We have parking on site for 6-7 cars.
The barn may be nearly 400 years old but to stay here is to take advantage of every comfort the modern world can offer. The accommodation itself is large, attractive, well-equipped and spacious with stone floors and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with central heating upstairs. There are televisions in all bedrooms with larger screens in the living room and the games room. The house has Sky, WiFi, and an iDock.

In 2010, the barn was a traditional, listed 17th-century stone and brick cob barn, built for one of the prosperous farms on this side of Wellington in Somerset. Today it has been lovingly turned into a luxurious holiday house that sleeps 12 (+2), retaining charming original features.
With 6 en-suite bedrooms and exclusive use of its own indoor pool and outdoor sunken hot-tub, this property is perfect for any celebration or family holiday.
Brilliant!! Went with 12 other adults and 2 children. Every room had ample space and the layout was good. Huge fitted kitchen with large fridge with ice maker and water dispenser. 100 tv's (maybe not 100) throughout the rooms, large comfy sofa's in both the lounge and the games room which contained a well looked after pool table. Dining table had plenty of space for all of us. Bedrooms all had showers or baths en-suite. A nice sized, well kept garden with a BBQ and lets not forget the outdoor hot tub and private indoor swimming pool. Everywhere was smart,clean and tidy. We spent most of the week at the barn as there was no need to go out. Also we were greeted by the owner on arrival with all the info we needed as well as a large cake! What a great week.
Definite WOW factor.
I will admit that the photo's do this property justice, it looks extremely attractive. But, you don't usually get what you see.Well!!, you do here ! It's spacious, it's warm and comfortable, it's elegant and cosy. It's big enough to give a really good party space and have areas where you can sit and read,change the baby, even watch TV with the kids who aren't playing pool.
We cooked a full breakfast and roast dinner for 20 in the kitchen without breaking a sweat. Everything was there pots,tableware and 2 dishwashers to take up the messy end.
The pool and poolhouse were gorgeous and comfortably warm (in January) and we used the pool twice on Saturday and again the day we left.
Had the weather been better we would have used the hot-tub, barbecued on Saturday evening and partied 'Al Fresco'. Next Time!!!!!!
The en-suite bedrooms are delightful ,all with wardrobe space and TV, we were downstairs and we loved the underfloor heating.
All in all, if there are enough bedrooms for you, I defy you to find a better venue for a fantastic weekend or a more relaxed week long stay.
We had Waitrose deliver the weekends groceries on Friday and brought our own alcohol and mixers.
Everyone loved the Barn and pool and can't wait to give it a re-run in the Summer !
Thank you Ann, for a wonderful weekend.
