  • “Lovely cottage in a quiet and peaceful countryside setting with everything you could ever need and more - great attention to detail throughout the whole property.”

    Its location is very central, not far from a good road that can get you to key local areas, such as Exmoor, Quantock Hills and the coast, where we did many walks with rewarding views. Relaxing in the hot tub was such a nice treat afterwards. ...

    Its location is very central, not far from a good road that can get you to key local areas, such as Exmoor, Quantock Hills and the coast, where we did many walks with rewarding views. Relaxing in the hot tub was such a nice treat afterwards. The owners were quick to respond to any queries and provide suggestions for best beaches, restaurants etc. The Bear Inn at Wiveliscombe (this nearby village has a lovely outdoor swimming pool!) was a favourite, as was The Swan in Bampton. Definitely recommend!

The property

Wiveliscombe 5.2 miles.

This picturesque, detached barn is situated in an idyllic rural location in Bathealton, close to Wiveliscombe in Somerset, on the edge of the Exmoor National Park.

Comfortably furnished, this inviting base is an excellent choice for families and friends looking to reside in the natural beauty of South West England, with easy access to Dartmoor, Exmoor and the North Somerset coastline.

Step into the entrance hall, where you can remove and store you coats and boots, before moving into the sitting room, which offers two sofas, an alluring woodburning stove set within a feature brick place and a flatscreen TV for entertainment.

Allow the chef amongst the group to whip up a tasty feast from the fitted kitchen, equipped with a useful set of appliances including a Range cooker and dishwasher, while the dining table offers the ideal spot to gather for special mealtimes together.

Completing the ground floor of The Granary is a spacious king-size double bedroom which can be arranged as a twin on request and caters to a variety of guests.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms, comprising a master king-size double with rustic beamed ceilings, plus a double bedroom with similar features, both served by the contemporary bathroom with bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for the day.

After a long day exploring the beautiful landscapes of the Exmoor National Park, look forward to unwinding in your own private hot tub, accompanied with a gin and tonic whilst you contemplate where to visit next.

The historic market town of Wiveliscombe is only five miles away and is well stocked with independent shops, cafes and pubs serving local produce, while Taunton, roughly 15 miles away, is a delightful town to visit with a plethora of historic buildings to admire and some excellent independent shops to browse.

After you’ve completed the magnificent walks of Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks, plan a visit to the beach resorts on the North Somerset Coast, including Blue Anchor Bay which is less than an hour's drive from The Granary.

A true home from home, this idyllic getaway promises a relaxing retreat, all year round.

About the location

WIVELISCOMBE

Taunton 11 miles.

Known affectionately as Wivey, this historic market town is set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. This is a perfect centre from which to set out on outdoor pursuits; from fishing for trout on the peaceful waters of Clatworthy Reservoir or Wimbleball Lake, horse-riding at a number of stables in the area or simply taking a long walk through the idyllic countryside on well-signed paths. There are several excellent independent shops in Wiveliscombe including an award-winning butcher, antique shops, a gunsmith and the well known Court House, a striking three-storey independent shop that attracts visitors from far afield. The village is half an hour's drive from North Somerset's beaches, such as Blue Anchor Bay and, as the gateway to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, an ideal base for walking and other pursuits in one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The picturesque Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Bampton are within driving distance. A perfect holiday destination - peace coupled with good facilities and leisure pursuits.
