The Barn at Rainsbury House offers a spacious barn conversion made up of two inter-linked buildings; The Barn and Barn Owl Cottage, six miles from two delightful Somerset market towns: Wiveliscombe and Dulverton, and only one mile from the Devon border.
This rural idyll, set in 16 acres adjoining the stunning Wimbleball Lake, offers a wealth of facilities and opportunities to make the most of the surrounding area, making it a perfect stay for friends and family, including a hot tub, badminton court and a games room complete with table tennis table.
The accommodation retains many original features, including exposed stone walls throughout, which create a real sense of charm.
All of the bedrooms are immaculately finished, beautifully combining antique furnishings with modern lamps and artwork, plus other thoughtful touches that will make you feel right at home.
Both kitchens are very well equipped, there are hair dryers in each bedroom and the living areas are super comfortable.
On arrival, there is a delightful hamper local produce and a delicious cake, always welcome after a long journey.
The Barn's dining table extends to accommodate up to thirteen people, the ideal place to enjoy a home-cooked family feast.
Not only do you get a peaceful private garden, you can also wander through the 16 acres of private pasture and woodland frequented by deer, badgers, foxes and otters as well as owls and buzzards.
Rainsbury land adjoins the 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, without ever seeing a car.
If you are feeling more adventurous, the Activity Centre at the opposite end of the lake offers, sailing, cycle hire, kayaking, zorba balls, hi-wire assault course, an indoor climbing wall, archery and fly fishing.
For a calmer pastime, head to nearby Wiveliscombe, offering a selection of quaint amenities and the fascinating Cotleigh Brewery where you can sample award-winning local ales, or visit the picturesque little market town of Dulverton, which is blessed with great shops, restaurants and pubs.
Rainsbury has a great deal to offer groups of all ages.
