The property

This charming semi-detached, single-storey former milking parlour, thought to date back over 100 years, is situated on the owner’s working dairy farm in the rural hamlet of Regil.

One of two on site, this delightful property is located a short drive from the Chew Valley Lakes and the Mendip Hills.

Comfortably furnished throughout, with flagstone floors and an open plan living area, this barn has been thoughtfully converted to now offer a real home-from-home farm holiday experience.

The 97-acre farm, a haven for wildlife, has been in the same family for five generations, hosting a herd of Holstein Friesian milking cows, housed in an impressive hi-tec barn.

There are also sheep and hens on site too, and the owners will be most happy to take you to watch the cows being milked, seasonally feed the calves and lambs, or treat yourselves to a fresh egg for your breakfast!

The surrounding local area offers peaceful walks through gently undulating countryside and quaint villages dating back before the Domesday Book.

Within a short drive you can experience fly fishing or just take a picnic to the scenic Chew Valley Lakes, marvel at the picturesque Cheddar Gorge, or explore the impressive by-ways across the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Alternatively take a trip to attractive Wells, The UK’s smallest city, with its stunning cathedral, or venture to the vibrant cities of Bristol or Bath.

At the end of the day you’ll be pleased to return to your rural retreat.

This delightful Somerset barn conversion offers you a real farm experience, the perfect place to unwind and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
