  • "The property was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed."

    It was also in a fantastic location - well placed for exploring the stunning area. We also loved being able to look out onto sheep and pheasants!!

  • "Well equipped clean cottage in idyllic location."

    Friendly owners next door if needed. Quiet, lots of lanes and paths to walk. No garden as such but sun trap patio with a perfect view for sitting out with a late night local gin...

  • "The Stables provides a perfect escape."

    It is set in a rural, secluded location with easy access to the coast and to the moors. It is stylishly furnished, exceedingly comfortable and very well equipped. Everything has been thought of, with a whole range of items provided, including a very welcome cake and bottle of wine. Raz was a wonderful host. She was friendly and helpful, even agreeing to send on items we had accidentally left behind. Raz achieved the perfect balance between respecting our privacy whilst being available if needed. We will not hesitate to return. There is so much to do in the area and The Stables provides the perfect base from which to explore. Thank you for the wonderful break despite the poor weather, including Storm Eunice! Hopefully next time, the sun will be shining.

  • "The Stables is a beautiful, well equipped, sumptious detached cottage in a rural idyll."

    Everything is very good quality and well thought out.The owners are very friendly and welcoming, leaving us a bottle of wine and cake on arrival. The wifi is fast, car parking is spacious and the wood burner cosy. We were lucky with the weather and even had some November sunshine. The hills were challenging for cycling, but we were very fit by the end of our stay.

  • "Spacious, clean, well-equipped property in quiet location with great views, local walks and easy access to the wider area - which is beautiful!"

    Friendly, helpful hosts always available but not interfering. Skylight in 2nd bedroom meant daylight couldn't be entirely kept out: a bit of a problem in mid-summer when daylight comes so early! Found lighting a little harsh for TV viewing at night, but this is a personal thing and a very minor issue when, overall, we were delighted with our stay at the property.

  • "Really friendly and helpful hosts."

    The converted barn was perfect for the few days I wanted to lock myself away in a beautiful place and concentrate on some writing, music and painting. Although I was staying alone, the property is clearly also set up as a perfect family base from where to explore the delights of Exmoor.

  • "The stables is a great place to stay if you are looking for peace and seclusion."

    The owner is a lovely attentive person who goes out of her way to ensure that your needs are met. The Stables is also handily placed for the towns on the North Somerset coast. It enjoys the most remarkable night sky’s being in the Exmoor dark sky area. A must for any astronomy enthusiast. Sadly we only had one clear sky night.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and peaceful."

    We found it easily and the welcome food was a lovely touch Raz the owner was very helpful when we got there. There is a lt to do in the area Dunster Castle is beautiful and the steam train is a good trip to Watchet and on to Minehead. The night skies at the cottage is lovely to see and the sheep in the field next to the cottage are fun to watch and showed the meaning behind the saying to follow like sheep. We would fully recommend anybody to stay at The Stables.

    We are unable to suggest any improvements as there is no need for them. The welcome by Raz and Gareth was heartfelt and the "little goodies" were as unexpected as they were enjoyable. We shall definitely be back! Brian and Ebba

  • "The team at Sykes we’re very helpful and responsive when I needed to make a change to my booking."

    The Stabes were better than I imagined as the photos don’t did it justice. Clean, fresh and nicely decorated the Stables had everything I needed and the welcome goodies were a lovely bonus. The owners met me on arrival and couldn’t have been more helpful and made it clear that should I need anything to just contact them. Overall a great place to stay with plenty to do from the front door or as a base to explore the area.

The property

Tucked away within a beautiful countryside setting, in the grounds of the old rectory and with far reaching views over the meadows, is this charming barn conversion boasting a wonderfully refined interior.

Set in the hamlet of Treborough within the Exmoor National Park, just a short distance from the village of Roadwater and the coastal town of Watchet, this superb getaway is ideal for touring a glorious area of Somerset.

The area is considered famous for star-gazing having been designated a "Dark Skies" location due to it's extremely low light pollution and is Europe's first Dark Skies Reserve.

Nestled into a hill, this stunning detached cottage offers a spacious lounge, with plenty of sumptuous seating, encouraging guests to kick back and relax into a well-deserved holiday.

The kitchen benefits a contemporary selection of fixtures and fittings along with a dining area for gathering at mealtimes.

High vaulted ceilings with interesting exposed beams are featured in both the kitchen and sitting room, adding character to an elegant framework.

This unique style of accommodation comprises a set of twin beds on the ground floor, which are zip and link offering flexible sleeping arrangements, whilst the lower ground floor boasts a king-size double.

Both have en-suite facilities and an immaculate presentation with neutral colour schemes.

Venture out on the decking or enjoy an evening sitting out in the warm summer air on the patio, this tranquil area has much to offer in terms of peace and quiet.

Less than 10 minutes drive away is nearby Wimbleball Lake, well known for its nature trails, off-road cycling tracks, kayaking & canoeing, wind sailing and facilities including a cafe, children's play area and high ropes.

However, if it is a spot of hustle and bustle you seek during your stay, make your way to the harbour town of Watchet; steeped in history it offers a variety of shops and a colourful marina.

There are superb walks along the coast, as well as the Brendon Hills and Exmoor to be explored.

This excellent location can be enjoyed from a stunning base.

Minehead 9 miles.

Watchet is a delightful, small Somerset harbour town with a maritime history going back over two millennia, where visitors may enjoy the variety of quaint shops on offer and watch the boats in the marina. Watchet attracts railway enthusiasts from all around, as The West Somerset Railway, twenty miles of preserved steam railway, passes through Watchet and continues through stunning scenery to the coastal town of Minehead, approximately nine miles away. There are superb walks along the coast from Watchet, while towards St Audries in the east, the Quantock Hills rise to 1,000 feet above the sea and the Brendon Hills and Exmoor are to the west, within easy reach. Explore the many pretty coastal and inland villages including Porlock, with its steep hill and pretty winding streets, Dunster with its dramatic castle perched above the historic village and the busy resort of Minehead with its sandy beach, golf course and traditional seaside attractions. This is an excellent choice of holiday destination for rural beauty, dramatic coastline and splendid walking.
