    “Rainsbury House is beautiful, our expectations were high & they were definitely met.”

    We spent a very happy week there celebrating my fathers 80th birthday exploring the moor and the coast. Graham and Val were very friendly on arrival then left us to enjoy our holiday. Graham was also extremely helpful when one of our cars had a flat tyre, we were very grateful for this. I've no doubt we will return.

The property

The Barn at Rainsbury House offers a spacious barn conversion; The Barn is located 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 games room complete with table tennis.

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 other thoughtful touches that will make you feel right at home.

The kitchen is well equipped and the living areas are super comfortable, plus each bedroom has a hair dryer.

The dining table accommodates up to thirteen, 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 and other woodland creatures.

Rainsbury land 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, without ever seeing a car.

If you are feeling more adventurous, the Activity Centre on the opposite side of the lake boasts, 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.

About the location

DULVERTON

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.
