    “We had such a wonderful stay at Oxbarton Barn!”

    The pictures do not do it justice, mostly because you just can't capture a feeling in a photo. The house is situated in a beautiful field, and the greenery you can see from all the windows brings such a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. The bedroom windows in particular are beautiful. The conversion has been done so thoughtfully. We made use of the access to the adjoining fields too, and the view over the nearby lake from up the hill were just lovely. Such a peaceful spot. ...

The house is situated in a beautiful field, and the greenery you can see from all the windows brings such a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. The bedroom windows in particular are beautiful. The conversion has been done so thoughtfully. We made use of the access to the adjoining fields too, and the view over the nearby lake from up the hill were just lovely. Such a peaceful spot. The building had all the amenities we needed, was nice and warm (underfloor heating!) and very clean - especially reassuring during current Covid times. The local produce they'd left for us on arrival was a lovely treat too! The owners were away themselves when we arrived, but were very communicative even though we only booked with 24 hours notice, and Janet popped by later in the week to say hello (from a safe distance!) which was lovely of her. Oxbarton was also a great spot to explore the rest of Somerset from. We visited Wells, Frome, Bath, Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge, the Avalon Marshes and a few local walking spots - some were closer than others, but all were within a 45 minute drive. We're not usually ones to re-visit the same place twice, as there's just too many other places to explore, but we may well come back to Oxbarton one day as it was just that lovely. Thank you so much Pete & Janet!

The property

Oxbarton is nestled in stunning Somerset countryside in the hamlet of Nempnett Thrubwell, near the village and lake of Blagdon and just 45 minutes from the historic cities of Bristol and Bath.

Fully renovated in tasteful fashion, the converted barn offers comfortable, well-equipped accommodation, ideal for those who like the best of both worlds – the beauty of the Mendip Hills, three cathedral cities, coastline and fishing lakes are all available nearby.

Enter this homely retreat and feel instantly welcome, its open-plan living area boasts a light and airy feel with high vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams and light-filled windows enhancing your relaxing space.

A stunning woodburner completes the snug sitting area wonderfully, and you will find an immaculate and well-equipped kitchen area which sets you up for a holiday in rural Somerset.

Oxbarton's two bedrooms consist of a thoughtfully decorated, inviting twin room and a fabulous king-size bedroom which is lined with striking wooden beams and is flooded with natural light from the number of windows along one side.

Luscious countryside engulfs this cosy cottage; you can appreciate it from your private lawn or from a lovely patio area which is perfect for an alfresco meal.

Your nearest amenities lie close by in the welcoming village of Blagdon, a place of much interest as well as a couple of pubs, shops and a café.

Neighbouring Chew Stoke and Chew Magna are in the other direction with pubs and shops also to enjoy.

Every taste and interest is catered for in the surrounding area; countryside lovers have the Mendip Hills, while a traditional day by the sea can be enjoyed at Weston-super-Mare just 12 miles away.

Two remarkable cities also lie within driving distance; Bristol and Bath are well worth a visit with their striking architecture and wide variety of first-class amenities and attractions.

A well-presented cottage in an ideally central Somerset location.
