The property

Old Stables is a charming, detached property situated in a countryside setting in the village of Pensford, Somerset.

Boasting easy access to the stunning Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, extensive grounds and shared access to a pool room, Old Stables welcomes families and friends looking to come together and holiday in this beautiful home.

The property was built in 1800 as part of Belluton Grange Estate, which has now been converted into a highly desirable residence whilst retaining many of the original features, including a well and a rare Georgian Horse Wash, utilising a natural spring in the grounds.

Following a day of exploring the surrounding scenery, there’s plenty of room to kick back and relax; discover the sitting room as you keep warm beside the woodburning stove or venture to the garden room and appreciate the stunning countryside views from all-around.

Allow the designated chef to take over the kitchen, dominated by the eight-burner Smeg range incorporating two electric ovens and a grill, along with a large granite worktop for preparing meals.

The large family table is where you can enjoy mealtimes together, or take the evening outside and dine alfresco style from the patio furniture.

Upstairs rest the bedrooms, housing two large en-suite rooms, both with king-size beds and one with a child’s bed, plus there is a smaller en-suite double room.

The final bedroom is a bunk room resting on the ground-floor perfect for the little ones.

When you're ready for a little more relaxation, make your way to the shared pool room, where you can revitalise with a reviving sauna session, before dipping into the hot tub and soaking your tired legs.

There are several country walks leading from the house that allow you to explore the picturesque surroundings; take the stiff and challenging climb up to the Iron Age Hill Fort atop Norton Malreward which offers spectacular views or meander along the footpath at the end of the driveway to stroll along the River Chew.

The local village of Pensford is home to a traditional pub, The Rising Sun, along with a Post Office and village store where you can restock the essentials.

Visit the Chew Valley sailing lake, reservoir, and bird reserve, also boasting easy access to both Cheddar and Glastonbury, while Street and the famous Clarks’ Outlet Village is within driving distance too.

For a change of scenery, the beautiful city of Bath is well-worth a visit, home to the stunning Abbey, thermal spas, and a range of shopping facilities.

Gather family and friends for a special stay at Old Stables.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1137806, together sleeping 16 guests.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
