Our fabulous accommodation is a traditional, listed 17th-century stone and brick cob barn. In recent years it has been very lovingly converted into a luxurious holiday home retaining many charming original features. High ceilings and multiple large sky lights make it perfect for undertaking creative projects and a lovely place to relax after dark. There is a woodburner in one of the sitting areas which will be lit during Autumn/Winter retreats. A snug in the mezzanine area offers some cosy downtime space to relax and read. Each bedroom has its own unique character features, is furnished with extremely comfortable beds, is equipped with a TV and offers an ensuite bathroom/shower room. All linen, dressing gowns and large, fluffy towels are provided. The barn also benefits from underfloor heating ensuring a blissful morning yoga session.
Our venue also provides the advantage of a large private indoor heated pool and a private outdoor hot tub which you may use whenever you wish to help you relax and unwind. The barn is surrounded by fields, perfect for our morning and evening walks.
Situated close to the Devon/Somerset border, our luxury accommodation is easily accessible, being only a 5 minute drive from the M5. For those arriving by train, the closest railway station is Taunton. Full directions to the venue will be emailed upon booking.
