Rainsbury Barns

Rainsbury Barns are two gorgeous barn conversions, let both as individual holiday homes, The Barn (sleeping 8) or Barn Owl (sleeping 5) or one large unit, sleeping up to thirteen people. With an interlinking door between the two properties, the Rainsbury Barns, if booked together, are ideal for two families looking to get together, yet enjoying the option of privacy when required. Not only do you get a peaceful private garden, you can also wander through the 16 acres of private pasture and woodland which adjoins a secluded and wooded corner of Wimbleball Lake. You can walk straight out of your front door onto a 9-mile ramble or cycle around the lake and onto the moor. If you are feeling more adventurous, the Activity Centre on the opposite side of the lake boasts sailing, and stand up paddle boarding as well as extra activities during school holidays. For a calmer pastime, head to nearby Wiveliscombe, offering a selection of quaint amenities and shops, or visit the picturesque little market town of Dulverton, which is blessed with great shops, restaurants, and pubs. Rainsbury Barns have a great deal to offer groups of all ages.

About the location


Minehead 17 miles.

Dulverton is the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, a small town standing between the rivers Barle and Exe, which meet further down the valley. Dulverton has some quaint narrow streets weaving between fine Victorian buildings and a three arched bridge crossing the river leading to riverside walks. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs in Dulverton and in the square is the Exmoor National Park visitor centre and art gallery, offering plenty of inspiration for exploring the vast expanse of the moor on foot, on horseback or from behind the wheel. Why not try an off road safari around Exmoor to see red deer, wild ponies and rare birds? Exmoor has been designated as a Dark Sky Reserve, where the light pollution is low and plenty of stargazing can be done. Near to Dulverton is the majestic lake at Wimblewall Country Park, the first Dark Skies Discovery Centre on Exmoor. Wimblewall is also a premier trout fishing location, and provides tuition in numerous water sports, including sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Further afield the North Somerset coastline has sandy beaches at Minehead, picturesque harbours and plenty of wild walking around Porlock Weir. A fabulous holiday destination for all those enjoying outdoor activities, dramatic landscapes and wildlife.
